So true! Why can't they pick up the phone or answer that damn mail? Why are they ghosting us instead of telling us the feedback ? (P.s I never ever ghosted/didn't let the phone ring to recruiters, even I reject an offer I make sure everybody is well informed and treated well) but I always end up in Ambani's P.A who care a bat's eye about others!!!!


The ones where I work aren’t so bad but I’ve interacted with some rough ones in the past.


Ha true in 80% cases.

Need some advice... I started at a new agency recently. Almost immediately upon meeting one of my male colleagues (over zoom) I felt this attraction and genuine connection. Context: he’s 11 years older than me but both of us are single, never been married, no kids, etc. he’s not my boss and we don’t technically work together on projects. I want to get to know him better but don’t really know how to approach the situation (or if I even should) without it being inappropriate or awkward. Thoughts?


How can we get a public accounting labor union going?


Question for the folks here that have recently gone through the visitor visa process for India: what am I missing?? I created the visa application form online and submitted it back in October for my dad and younger brother but is there a timeframe for when we hear back? The site is a cluster and I can’t figure out what I need to do in the meantime or do I just wait to hear back? Is there a step by step somewhere that someone can lead me to? Thank you and I owe you one!

Just curious...for those that work at Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, social media companies...how do you limit your screen time? Are you so sick of social media at work that you don’t care about it when you get home? Do you let your kids have access?


Got an offer from Accenture Federal for Manager, $155k and $10k sign on. 9 YOE in consulting and expecting MBA next summer. Fair deal?Accenture


Interviewed for an industry role last week. Interviews went great. Got an email from the hiring manager, asked to set up 15 min to connect later this week. Would have expected either an offer or a 'no thanks' would've come from recruiting/hr. Anyone else had a hiring manager reach out first after an interview?

Project leadership - please don't overload analysts/consultants because they are "good" ... it will burn them out and you will lose talented resources


Apologies for the dumb question but what exactly does partner mean in today’s world? In olden times it would have meant you were a partial owner right? Does it still? Or does it just mean extra highly paid employee with a lot of leadership responsibilities? We don’t use the term at Accenture of course since we’re public, but I’m curious what it really means at b4 or MBB, beyond just extra high paychecks? Are there actual partner benefits, like owning private shares of the company?


What is a reasonable base to ask for a first year manager at EY (FSO). They are asking for my compensation expectations and want to make sure I am not throwing a random number out there.


2.5 YOE in tech Corp Dev for 120K. People say that MBAs aren’t valued in tech, but a lot of my team have them, and about half are from M7. Is it worth getting an MBA, even when in tech?
