After talks with my regional marketing team (RMT), each of us feels that we deserve a raise and have been underpaid since we began. We are the most productive RMT, we drive global scaling with our work as examples, and train up our counterpart teams across the globe. All of this with half the team members of the other teams and within two years of our existence. Does anyone have guidance or advice on how to raise this type of issue, and how to seek a raise both individually and as a team?
I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
As someone who has only worked at EY and has no other work experience or “passion,” how do I begin looking? I’m a high performer in CA with a cpa and working in tax but I don’t feel like I have enough time for myself with all the extra work from people leaving during the never ending busy seasons. I’m in my mid twenties and feel like work is my life. I think I’ll be satisfied with six figures for a while, which I’d be pretty close to after my raise in October anyways, and 40 hour work weeks.
Consulting broadly has a structured promotion system (A/SA to C/SC to M to SM to MD/P)... does investment banking have a similar structure?
Hi Guys, can anyone tell me when does a promotion take effect (officially) for PwC SDC Bangalore?
I went to my boss at work and said, "I need a raise. Three other companies are after me." He said, "Really? Which other companies are after you?" I said, "The electric, water and gas companies"
Have you ever run into a situation where you asked for more money (either a raise or when negotiating an offer) and you got it and regretted it? What are the strings attached to more $?
Everytime I ask my boss for a raise he tells me there is a freeze. How should I handle the situation?

Should seniority be by title or length of time spent on a project? eg. Should A2 be delegating up to A3 if A2 has been on project longer but A3 is obviously in their promotion year ...
125% Utilization and 7th position from top right in Q3 scatter plot. I am in Advisory (joined in Aug 2015) primarily concentrating in FSI. Chances of promotion from C -> SC?
New to this. Is it typical for a firm to ask a staff to do the work of a senior for a year to show that they are ready for a promotion?
Has anyone used the free Uber airport rides from the Amex promotion? Will it work if I only have a corporate Amex card?
Wanted to wait until after promotion notification to bring up a transfer. How long to wait now so it doesn’t seem too obvious that was my reasoning? I have about five months before I need the transfer
Does anyone work fewer than 5 days and have a management role at their agency? I work 4 days and am being told it’s holding back being considered for a promotion.
My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events. When I finally do visit them all they can do is comment on my weight or how I look - basically anything they can nitpick about my appearance, and then guilt me for not visiting them more. Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?
I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..
Are there any Israeli fishes here that can share their perspective on how unionizing has affected the Big 4 in Israel? Currently this may be the only country where big 4 accountants have union membership & collective bargaining agreements, so I'm curious what the motivations were and whether you feel it's been worth it https://en.globes.co.il/en/article-ey-first-israeli-accounting-firm-to-sign-collective-labor-agreement-1001195205

MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
How realistic is it to be able to work 3/4 of the year in consulting/tech for 3/4 of your salary? I have seen mention of a few people who have been able to swing it. Do you have to work for a few years first?
I have a Deloitte introductory call with a recruiter next week for a PMO analyst role. Any tips, suggestions, recommendations???
Nothing today on the S& layoffs?
SC offer from Deloitte in transaction services in a HCOL city - 85 base plus standard bonus. I asked her if there was more wiggle room bc that’s what I’ll get at my current firm when I make senior. Am I out of line with my expectations or right in asking for more?
From reading this app. I realize we have it really well at EY. Deloitte doing major layoffs, KMPG has to come in at the crack of dawn, PwC well the hours..

Started taking prenatal vitamins , ubiquinol and vitamin D. Been doing this for a month to prep to get pregnant. Breaking out like crazy for 3 weeks now. Are these linked?
I know it’s subjective. But how many interview attempts on an average fishes here took to crack offers with MBB? Does re-applying have any advantages?
Just found out I’m pregnant but I’m on birth control and I have been for 2 years now so I have no idea how to explain this to my bf or how this even happened........
Someone remind me please, if I book a flight through Chase portal, my elite status will kick in vs. if I book a hotel through the portal I won’t get the points, correct?
Went out on a date and was called a loser. I told her I appreciated everything in my life & now I’m a manager in big 4 and I’m happy with my life. She told me “you are only a manager in big 4 and how can you be happy? you should be working in the weekend to get to a better firm or at least be a senior manager at this age (33 yo). I’m really mad now.
@Deloitte 🐟 - what’s the salary range for “Business Analyst, Advisory - Technology Center" in Tier 2/3 city for an Experienced Hire?
Maybe a strange take but I think that we should be more in touch with our internal bodies. We can send astronauts to the moon and rovers to mars but there’s no easy, portable way to scan our bodies to see what’s going on inside (e.g., a DIY full body xray or MRI). I think this could be the next gen of weighing scales that also show various health metrics, track fitness, etc. It could help with prevention and diagnosis. I guess it’s bad for health providers who make $ today from this. Thoughts?
