Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
Joined Deloitte in June 2018 as a Consultant in Advisory practice. Will I get a raise this year?
Confirmed! Promotion from Specialist to Manager. Any thoughts on what to expect for raise?
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
Is the cycle after a promotion the easiest review cycle or the hardest? Got promoted in December and I feel like I'm going to screw it up...

What is the typical length in time from starting the conversation to receiving an offer when transferring from one big 4 to another?
When you explain to your non-accounting friends what the Big 4 is and they say, "oh sounds like the Ivy League for accounting firms" >>>>
Reverse the raise freezes!
Which one is better to transfer into among B4 in terms of growth, benefits, and culture? And how crazy is the busy season hours among B4?
I don’t have a degree but consulting experience at Big 4. I learned you can get a bachelor degree in wine tasting, do you think it would still be accepted as a regular bachelor degree for future jobs?
Could I use a job offer that I don’t want as leverage to get a raise? Or is it not really leverage because I don’t have the intention to actually leave. This is more of a hypothetical question.
Don't hire Davies and Associates LLC for any of your visa application. They missed my H1b deadline and the reason they gave is that they didn't check their email and messages.

Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…

What’s your favorite memory from when you were a Consulting newbie? For me - tie between the panic I experienced the first time I missed a flight and when I expensed a $35 dinner. Good times.
How’s PwC immigration team in terms of new h1 transfer? I have got an offer with PwC but recruiter said that it would 6-8 months in the current trend to get it approved?! Is that lil exaggerated?
Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔
As a first year AC, should I be investing in property and renting it out? (houses are cheap where I live, and got even cheaper bc of covid) Or should I be investing in stocks/index funds?
Is anyone here a foreigner working in the US, and contributing to your 401(k)? Is it worth it if you don’t plan to retire here? Insights appreciated.
I’m thinking of quitting breastfeeding. My baby is 5 months old, and my pump just broke, and I don’t think she’s eating enough and she wakes up all the time at night hungry. I’m just tired of it. I’d rather just give her bottles and call it a day. Ready for my husband to take the night feeds, ready to be able to have a drink without worrying about when I have to feed the baby. The actual breastfeeding has been easy, which is why I feel guilty for “quitting.”
Just picked up Whiskey Bible's #1 rated whiskey for 2021 (and 2020 World Whisky of the year) - can't wait for the weekend to crack this baby open. Alberta Premium Rye Cask Strength.

Former Senior Manager in Advisory here - does anyone feel like it’s a steep wall trying to break into tech industry for any role that has a manager title (e.g., Manager, XYZ Function)? I exited as a Senior Program Manager (IC role), I could absolutely not find anyone in industry willing to trust me managing people. Has anyone felt the same? What’s the reason for this wall? I’ve managed tons of teams and managed their career dev while at Big 4...what am I not seeing that I should see?
Booked some Marriott stays on points before the change in redemption rates. It’s now fewer points for the same dates. Is it possible to get the difference back? If so how, call or cancel/rebook
Any jobs you are aware of that pay 125k+ and only require 40-45 hours/week? Would undoubtedly give up 50-60k of TC to have consistent free time. Honestly don’t even care what the role is as long as it’s not super technically challenging… 4 YOE out of top 5 UG b-school for context.
