I got a surprise promotion back in August and because of that, didn’t get a chance to negotiate my raise. As year end eval is coming up, would anyone in my shoes be expecting another relatively small adjustment because of the typical year end process?
Any advice for technical interview @ Guidehouse
A while ago, I dated one of my managers. It ended. Nobody knew about it & now I am reporting to him. I‘m afraid to report for bad optics & potential career hits. But I can’t be naive. Any advice?
He fired Vindman’s twin brother too. What a petty, small man this President* has turned out to be. Thank you GOP for showing your true colors in electing this dotard into office.
Am I crazy? I am barely cracking 35 hrs a week, getting paid over 400k TC and tons of autonomy. I am bored out my mind and looking for opps outside consulting even if it means a cut in pay/title and increase in workload.

6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes ..

I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭

Quick question for everyone here. I am currently a senior associate at a big 4 firm. I have recently received an offer from Blackstone for an operations strategy role. I have only been in my role for 2 months. Blackstone’s offer is around a 15% comp increase. Would it look bad on my resume for me to leave two months into this role? Also, if anyone is on the operations side of PE, could you share your experience? Thanks!
How did you break into PE? I currently have 3 YOE with a background in Capital Markets (2 years) and FP&A for the past year. I have absolutely no passion for my current role in FP&A and always find myself thinking about PE. Any advice if I decide to try to make the transition. Is it feasible?
Firm pulled my offer after I tried to negotiate comp (even though others at similar funds said offer was under market) saying that they want someone who really wants to be there and have a bunch of people who are willing to drop everything to work there and not ask “questions about comp or title”. Did I mess up or dodge a bullet?

Year 2 definitely, year 3, would require a bit of explaining as to why you waited so long, but definitely possible. In my limited sample size I’ve observed most consultants recruit in year 2
Most PE firms are recruiting about 18 months in advance for associate roles. You would need to be interviewing either your first or second fall/winter on the job depending on whether you want to have 2 or 3 yrs of experience before staring PE
