I love this group. For those that receive company equity as part of their comp, what’s your strategy? Do you immediately sell it all and put the cash into index funds?
Looking for some help with negotiating a low ball offer with another big 4 for a manager role in the same high COL city. The first offer was lower than my current salary...
Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊
Expecting an offer from a tech company in SF. I joined my current firm less than year ago and if I leave I have a clawback on my bonus. I had a relo bonus $15K and a sign on $10K.
Considering leaving MBB to join a FMCG. Corporate consulting role. Would be leaving at Manager level with Mba. What sort of compensation should I be expecting?
I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?
Where could I find a source for trusted salary and total compensation information? I need to find salary/total comp for a help desk person in Monterrey, Mexico and Hyperbad, India.
How do salary increases work at Big 4 if you come in an experienced hire? For example if I switch firms as an SA at 130k salary, what can I expect as an increase the next year since I’m not on the normal comp structure?
I need help with my daily makeup routine/application. I'm looking for a natural smoky look a la Olivia Pope/Kerry Washington. Any recommended tutorials to help me re-learn how to apply? Prefer someone who gets to the point, talks about technique and keeps it simple. Bonus points if there's someone who helps you identify the best looks for your eye shape. Does this unicorn exist?
Can anyone recommend a Time Management course for employees? Bonus if it is tailored for Outside Sales people. Online/Virtual would be preferred as the reps are scattered throughout the country. Thank you!
Does anyone know if TCS offers joining bonus to laterals? If yes, how much for 3-4 yoe? And does joining bonus means we need to give a commitment or something?
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
Any one have any thoughts or experience with principal financial group as a place to start and be in training? I was advised i would recieve 4 months salary before transitioning to commission

Has anyone at Ropes and Gray missed a time entry deadline and get their bonus reduced because of it? I've definately missed some time entry deadlines this year, and I'm concerned that they'll reduce my bonus. I've missed it in other years and mg bonus was not reduced.
Is implementation work so different from strat? I worked in multiple projects where the client was ex-MBB and they had no clue on how the implementation works.
Hate to do this, but... large scale EO coming up “... working on an EO to establish a merit-based immigration system to further protect US workers”
Had an interview 2 weeks ago that went really well. Haven’t heard a yes or no just emails asking me to stay tuned. What does that mean? Am I on a waiting list?
I have been offered a 25 percent hike at a big 4 but have another offer with 40 percent hike in a Boutiqe firm. I asked the HR of the big 4 if she could adjust since I have a 40 percent hike letter.

Not Covid related, but: Cities you moved to and felt hard or easy in making new friends?
Been talking to a startup. Has pretty decent seed funding from a much larger real estate "parent" company and is seeking series A. Current offer is falls short, any advice for negotiating?
Who’s leaving PwC? Raise yoooo haaaandddd 🤚
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
Its MBB work really that different from the rest of the consultancies? Outside of the branding and the pay that is?
Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!
Hey 🐠! As a 26M with an Engineering (not Computer) degree outside the US at good but not great school, and 2YOE in IT consulting + 2.5YOE in Management consulting, would a Masters in CS/MBA at a T15 school make my profile much more atrractive to FAANG PM or SW Engineer roles in the US? Besides also having the skills, of course. Trying to plan the next steps in my career Thanks a lot!
Meritocracy is one of the best ideologies of the modern world. Was reflecting about what it means and the importance of it - it’s a shame that today’s culture is trying to pivot away/“cancel” it. Just a midday meeting thoughts lol Work hard and reap the fruits of your labour.
