Working as Consultant at Cognizant Business Consulting now, I am being offered a role of Senior Business Analyst as a contractor for 1yr, initially for 6 months in Deloitte IN. I am a bit skeptical with this Contractor thing. Can someone guide me please? They say I don't have prior Big 4 consulting experience and hence this role.

If I was going to make a transition to another firm (possibly Tier 2 or Big 4), when would be an appropriate time to do so? I have about 9 months of experience with IBM thus far. Wait 2 years? Less?
I am not approved for financing the car due to immigration status and limited credit history. Leasing (1.99% - 2 years) and cash are feasible options. I really want to own the car so should I buy it off in cash or lease to build credit history?
My background check is taking forever and now they are asking me to provide my letter of separation for a job I held 7 years back. This is making me anxious since I am also in the process of H1B transfer - I just want them to tell me if I passed the check or not before I resign. - Anyone have an experience with a spotty background check and how fast/tedious it was. For ref for both my last jobs (in US) it was seamless.

What’s the best time to switch jobs after maternity leave? Is there any policy at Blackstone on how long we need to stay after maternity leave?
Do you remember when you were growing up and the neighbor kid pissed you off, so you destroyed your sister's room. Then your parents said it was OK, because you were angry? Me neither. Stupid looters
I am hoping some people can help me here. My SO is in this horrible pit of depression and they are pushing me away. They have all these colliding events in the last few months: father has Alzheimer’s.
Any advice on how to handle a situation where a parent wants to sue a teacher who reported them to child protective services? My understanding is the parent has no grounds for a lawsuit due to mandated reporter laws. Is this true?
I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!
Do you all have any tips for morning sickness? I’m 7 weeks pregnant and almost haven’t been able to function the last three days. I’m going to call my doctor tomorrow to see what she recommends, but I would be grateful for any tips you can provide in the meantime.
I know M&A has a terrible rep, but if there’s anyone who enjoys it (or at least doesn’t completely hate it), could you please say what you like about the practice? Interviewing for an M&A position and really do want to love the job, at least for a year. FYI, I’m retooling from lit, and no, staying at my current firm isn’t an option.
If I gave a salary range in my pre-screen and then got an offer in that range, can I negotiate higher? They said 70-80k. I said I’m look for something higher (more in the 90-100k) and they said that should be doable, but really I want something in the 110-120k range (gave a lowball bc didn’t want to turn them off in the first round). How do I got about asking for higher?
Uber vs Google? For ops/bus dev role
General musing - it seems like the vast majority of recs in here are for super expensive hotels and resorts (St Regis, etc). I work in consulting and make good money but can’t fathom spending $600+ a night on a hotel. Am I really in the minority or is it just that ppl staying at the Ritz want to show off?
Received offer for product management from prestigious non profit tech company; but the pay is quite low. I’m pivoting from consulting and want to break into PM but is it worth it for the low salary?
Had a spontaneous spring clean tonight -- it felt great and makes me want to adopt a more minimalist lifestyle.
I got a 2nd job offer after formally accepting another (both start in 2.5 weeks). Job Offer 2 salary is a few grand more than Offer 1(already acceted) AND pays 100% of health/dental/vision premiums, which will save me another few thousand a year. Both jobs are in a city notorious for it's high cost-of-living (my partners job is moving us from the midwest to SF this summer), so several thousand dollars difference *WILL* be noticeable. Is it too late to use Offer 2 to negotiate Offer 1?
Hi 🐠 fam - I have final round interviews with the VP/SVPs of the function (Skip level interviews). What are some good questions to ask when you're interviewing with leaders at this level? Thank you!!
I am not on an agile project, but I am learning more about it and very interested in how I can apply to my everyday work. Any easy ideas as to how to incorporate agile into my normal way of working?
I’m interviewing for a role that is open to both remote and in-office (when it’s safe) work. Should I give salary expectations based on cost of living in the city where the office is located or based on where I’d live working remotely? Cost of living in the office location is a lot higher than where I’d live but since they are also considering in-person candidates, I know the budget is there.
Has anyone worked at, is currently at, or knows someone who worked at Cassiday Schade and willing to give feedback? Looking at pursuing a lateral move but want better insight into the firm culture.
My agency technically has unlimited PTO but our managers quietly disapprove of the policy. It’s the kind of place where people make you feel guilty for taking it... (cont)
