What firm has the best workforce planning / analytics practices? I’m trying to think about where i want to go after promotion.
Promotion effective two weeks from now on 7/1, too early to change your job title on LinkedIn?
Hey, I am a first year tax senior in EY GDS (GES). Manager is already planning to give me the responsibilities of an AM. Can i except a promotion/progression to AM next year if I am performing as expected ? Or is it too much to except. Thanks in advance
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?
Sr Consultant, Human Capital, Federal Industry Alignment, $115K. First year. Will likely get a 3. Was told by a SM that I make as much as most managers and I shouldn't expect a bonus or raise. True?
Promotion was with HR to be approved...am I being paranoid for worrying the current world situation could significantly delay it?
Was upset with raise. Just got a text from mom. Dad is in the hospital. Called. She says he's fine. Can't believe I was bummed about my raise. As if slightly more money matters.
Wondering why the bonuses are so low? Here is the reason - 598 managers and 651 senior manager promotions in Tax. That’s the most lopsided promotion stats ever.
Hi Guys, can anyone tell me when does a promotion take effect (officially) for PwC SDC Bangalore?
Anybody have experience with Monta and Farer? I want to get a new watch soon to commemorate a new job/promotion. Looking at the monta atlas blue dial, also the Farer chrono-sport manual and Farer world time.
Anyone recently internally transfer from audit to FDD? Just made Senior and haven’t gotten my raise yet so curious what transfers get, I’m sure it’ll be way less than external hires but the anticipation is killing me.
Our startup just raised our Series B, I want to ask for a raise but I’m not really sure how to go about it - any tips from my baddass females or allies out there? 🙌
Anybody been offered a promotion with no corresponding pay rise? I assumed that was impossible but am worried that may be what's on offer. Surely not??!
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
Woke up at 3am with work anxiety; got out of bed around 5.30 to sketch slides. NEVER happened before in nine years of consulting. MD promotion stress may be what finally does me in 😩
I work at a mid tier firm in an audit group of ~20 people. We’ve recently had two seniors and a manager leave, and I just found out another senior with a ton of big jobs is leaving in three weeks. I also just found out I’m being promoted to senior with a raise of 10%. In light of all these departures though, I kind of want to ask for more.... should I? And what % raise is appropriate? Any insight appreciated!
Want to get an mba to get into a cushy tech position. Do people openly write about their tech goals in their apps? Feels like most post-mba essays are usually over-inflated.
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
Been getting huge waves of not wanting to work because I know I’m only in it for the money. Except that doesn’t even feel worth it anymore. Just started a new project that isn’t interesting, but is chargeable. Need some advice from fellow fishes. Oh, to add on, I had a vacation planned for Santorini earlier in April, but was cancelled due to COVID. 😭
Got an invite from Amex to upgrade my gold to a platinum card. The benefits seem solid but I already have CSR. Thoughts?
what Amex do you get at LEK for the corporate card? does it make sense to even get it if I already have my own gold amex?
What work words or phrases kick up your anxiety? Other than pls fix (I thankfully haven't had that one much). For me, I'm starting to develop a tic when I see "cheers."

What web meeting platform are you using for client meetings? I’m currently using GoTo, but considering switching over to Zoom. (Got rid of Fuze years ago, it was crap)
Hey KPMG or those who have recently applied for an EA position w KPMG : where is the link for the open EA role on their site? I only saw one that specifically said in DC for Audit...is there another area on that site that I am missing? I’m moving out of my home state/city and am looking for new opportunities since EY will be requiring EAs to return to the office an estimated 2-3 days a week. If anyone knows of other firms hiring please let me know that, too! THANK YOU!!
How does experienced hiring (generally) work in consulting? Are there cycles similar to campus recruiting or is it year-round? Got laid off a few weeks back and the job hunt has been frustrating
