Joined Deloitte in June 2018 as a Consultant in Advisory practice. Will I get a raise this year?
Looking to buy a new watch to celebrate a recent promotion. Stuck between the JLC Master Ultra Thin Moon and the JLC Reverso Classic and wanted to get the bowl’s opinions. For context, the other pieces I have right now are the Rolex Submariner Date 16610 and the Rolex Daytona Ceramic Black 116500ln. Also open to any alternatives!
I'm a first year and just received a raise, even though I haven't been at the firm for a year yet. It's a great amount, and I'm so thankful. The partners told me in person but I'm just wondering if I should ask them to put it in writing, just to confirm it and in case anything happens down the road? If I learned anything as an attorney, it's to always have everything in writing lol
I’m currently an IB analyst at a no name shop in LA. I’m employed as a 1099 and I currently get 70k/year + 5% of deal fees I’m staffed on. This makes my all in extremely variable as I made 210K in ‘19 and 70k in ‘20. We let someone go this year and I asked for a raise and he bumped me up to to that 5% from 4%. However we just signed up 4 new clients, which would greatly increase my workload as I’m the only junior guy. Would it be messed up to ask him to bump me to 100k base or I quit?
Probably within 1 year of manager promotion, is it short sighted to leave before the promo?
When does the CSP 80k SOB promotion end?
If my manager says they have proposed a promotion for me, and approval will take two months, when do I celebrate? What % of proposed promotions actually materialize ?
Is anyone interested in investing in a commercial asset that returns average CoC of 10%, 8% pref and an IRR of 15%+. Total return of 100%+ typically 5 year hold. I’m looking to help raise some capital from sophisticated investors over the next few months but not sure if people in consulting are interested in this. Most of my investors are friends or acquaintances as of now.
How is the work culture at Unqork? Currently interviewing there for 15% pay raise. Most of it in RSUs though. Wondering if its worth the switch 🤔
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"
Are good looking people usually getting faster promotion, tending to do more management and non tech work?
Raise your hands if you value sleep over spending an extra +/- 30 minutes to get ready in the AM. Rock the natural look ladies (and gentlemen)!
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
For those in Advisory and not pursuing their CPA, what are the other credentials you can use for promotion to senior?
No new from RP yet about promotion but Got an email from Independence Checkpoint about a new portfolio due within 5 days. Does that mean I made manager?
If you put in your two weeks notice before promotion bonuses are paid, but promotion bonus payout day occurs during those two weeks, do you still get your promotion bonus?
Pwc deals - Are we going to do promotion twice a year starting from this year (ie Jan and July)? Heard a rumor
So I’m 3 weeks into a new full time job. Been working like mad—late nights and all Memorial Day weekend. I’m the only senior writer on the team. How do I ask for a raise?
A client runs an outplacement firm. EY said the PPEDD separation list is imminent and that there will be broad cuts at all levels beginning in July to reflect past, current, and future business conditions. Other B4’s are expected as well.
For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
Anyone have slow months where you burn through a lot of your allotted pro bono/professional development hours to keep hitting minimum daily hours? The past few weeks have been like this for me. Should I be concerned (I.e., will this reflect poorly on me, come review time? Will I have dug myself too much of a hole if I keep burning my non-billable hours?) I’ve been asking partners if I can assist in any projects so I can fill my plate, but I’ve only gotten small (4-6 hour) tasks handed my way.
Do major consulting firms (ex. MBB, Big 4, Accenture, Kearney, OW, etc.) have strong supply chain presence and experience? What are the best firms and/or geographies with strong supply chain thought leadership and meaningful experiences to develop breadth in the field?
Has anyone ever slept in their home office/ their firm's office in another city? (for the entire night not just 10 minutes)
Hi Fishes, I have an interview scheduled with Infosys this weekend for Pega technology (Pega Developer role). Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
I interviewed for an L6 Sr program manager role and was offered an L5 program manager position at amazon. I have 5 YEO and a masters. I saw the L5 role only asks for 2 YEO. TC for the L5 is slightly more than I make now. Would accepting this be a good long term move? Would I be taking a step backwards?
If you’re going to shout “shut the fuck up” to your staff during a conference call make sure your skype is on mute first. Amateur hour out here.
For those in Non Resident work visa, is it worth waiting for almost 7 yrs to get your GC in the US or apply PR to Canada and take a cut on your paycheck for a more secure residency? Thoughts and ideas
How flexible is Deloitte with the start date because of H1b processing time? I signed the offer mid-may for July 12 because it seemed realistic enough for premium H1b transfer. But the lawyers seem slower than what I was used to and July 12 does not seem likely. Is this going to be a problem?
Imagine if this virus hit thirty years ago. If it wasn't for the internet, allowing WFH and communications, the economy would basically collapse. It could be alot worse.
Expecting and offer from Accenture soon as Manager in their cloud practice. What is the salary, bonus, RSU I should expect. Just want to be better informed prior to negotiating.
Does anyone else here have a passion to eventually start your own company someday? I really just want to work for myself, be my own boss, make myself money, etc but I don’t know where to start. Should I start a side project on the side? Figure out what I’m passionate about, what can make me money, etc?
Mandating health care for teachers...where will it stop? Once government starts mandating an area of our lives they rarely ever back off...they double down and mandate more...so again...where will it stop? Here is a for instance...if we look at days missed then pregnancy is certainly a huge factor...when will the State start mandating birth control for teachers or write contracts that births be scheduled during summer vacation time so as to not negatively impact the continuity in the classroom
Thinking of moving family to the Big Apple. What's a good base salary for an ACD level in NY? I'm sure rent/house payment and schools will kill most of the funds, but need an idea for reference.🖖
McKinsey people a few weeks ago: “Sorry, I can’t refer you because it would dilute my network quality and I won’t even take the time to get to know you.” McKinsey people now: “Take my referral and apply now!” What a difference $5k makes.
