Is studying for (and hopefully passing) the CFA a good alternative to an MBA for career advancement? Background: Currently in M&A advisory. Not looking to move into research or portfolio management, just seeking to add an "advanced degree". I would love to go back to school, but cost and my location - not near any major schools - have kept me from applying. I have considered Kellogg's eMBA in Miami. #cfa #mba
Wondering what your company's remote work policy was before quarantine, and whether they're working on plans to evolve it once there's a vaccine and we all fully return to offices.
I’m supposed to roll off next week because my work stream is ending so I pinged an md and said I’m free for a new project in a week. Today, I’m reading the new sow and I find out that the project is keeping me on a few more weeks. Pretty messed up that I wasn’t told about this in person. Do I have to stay?
I fly through DFW a lot and some DFW security officer sent me a connection request on LinkedIn. No idea who he is. Should I be creeped out?
For my 401k I have a section that shows Roth contributions and earnings. I have a different section that is labeled “nontaxable balances” and just shows Roth contributions. The Roth contributions number is smaller than the Roth contributions and earnings (which is expected since my contributions have grown). But why aren’t my Roth contributions AND earnings showing in the nontaxable balances section?
Does anyone know the salary range for strategy manager at Accenture in Canada? Interested in the team and a role they just posted, any insight would be so helpful!
26/NYC/4 years experience/56K. Already know I’m underpaid 🙄, question is how to make a big raise stick.
What are thoughts on Inclusion & Diversity messaging at your company? So sick of hearing it and not seeing better results.
Used our spot bonus on a watch for my dad, who doesn’t have many nice things to include a watch. This felt better than buying any of my Rolexes for myself and grateful to be in a position to do so. Happy Friday everyone!
As an ADC applying this summer for 2022 start, I haven’t gotten a chance to connect with any L.E.K. Consulting members and I really want to get to know the company better before moving on with my application. Any L.E.K. Consulting fish out there willing to spare a few minutes to chat about their work, the company, the culture etc? Thanks!
Creating a company and going the self funded route. Is it silly for me to cut tax advantage account contributions (e.g., 401k) to gain cash on hand? - even if I lose firm contributions.
Genuine question and attempt to understand: for those of you who are upset or unhappy about more robust efforts at diversity and inclusivity, can you explain why these efforts upset you? Or worry you?
I’ve gone clientside as a WOC. One of the areas the lead agency is scored by is diversity.. I am infuriated that they’ve hired EVEN MORE white guys in leadership roles.
Tik Tok has made me realize that I should’ve became a real estate developer. Instead I chose a path where I’m afraid to ask for 5% raise, and burn my brain 80 hours a week working for the man.
Took PTO starting last Monday for a family trip (got canceled bc of covid but kept the days). I’ve worked 8 hours ever day and will Monday and Tuesday of this week. Is it fair for me to be extremely annoyed? There was no talk about getting my work covered and my boss just assumed I’d still lead any meetings I own. Not sure how to handle this 😩
After how many days Deloitte 1st round result technical interview will come?... Did anyone applied and get the response...
