Business etiquette question: when traveling with your boss is it okay to ride your boss's coattails with regard to airline status. For example, he gets free checked bags so he will check mine with his to get higher unloading priority and to save the company a few shekels. I also use the priority lines with him when we need to go to the airline counter and when we board the plane. I am American & travel mostly to latin American countries (since feelings towards queues might change on culture).

Hi Folks, What's reviews of Publicis Sapient. Like work culture and if there is hiring firing culture I am from ETL background and knowledge of Hive and basic spark and I will be working on cloud(attended training only, consider near to no knowledge) and spark development. Will you suggest me to join there? Technology stack may be good for me but it will be new & challenging for me. I am scared to join there because of job security and work life balance can be dying ( I can stretch not daily?
Meritocracy is one of the best ideologies of the modern world. Was reflecting about what it means and the importance of it - it’s a shame that today’s culture is trying to pivot away/“cancel” it. Just a midday meeting thoughts lol Work hard and reap the fruits of your labour.
Which party is more fascist? If definition is strong central control of society, culture, and private enterprise? Know we typically define it as right leaning but sounds like today’s left, no?
Kinda disturbing how intensely some folks ordering the iPhone X are being attacked online. Why does it matter if others want a phone? It seems to be another manifestation of the culture wars.

Anyone in m and a tax at DT - can you share your experience culture teams leadership etc?
Transferred to BAH from BCG to take a 20% bump and the opportunity to work in the federal space. Initial thoughts - disorganized orientation, decent culture. However, got placed on the bench 😑
I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

What package does a 2nd year manager get at PwC Chicago Tax and what would be the joining bonus? How is the culture over in the office? Does Asians get fair treatment?
To be great at the ad game, you need to be a connoisseur of culture. The thing is, the people who've been in this industry the longest, have no idea what's going on because they've been busy as fuck.

Is it correct that at EY there are no levels among Partners? Of course, as you get more tenure you comp increases and you likely get leadership position, but there are no specific levels at EY like you have at MBB Partners (e.g. P, MDP, SMSP at BCG).
Are exit opportunities as a partner really that much better than an intern? What's the difference?

Please be kind, genuinely looking for help. Started my Grad School journey and really want an idea of the quality of school I can realistically aim for. My profile: M / 27 / AA 3.1 GPA Frm a State university 6 YOE (3 in Big 4 Consulting) Active in community Prez of a few orgs Frm Chicago 100% open to relocate 1st practice GRE: 304 (151- V / 153 Q) Looking to pursue a tech mgmt concentration.
Is it hard to get into big tech from big 4 tech consulting after 3+ years? I tried at 2 yoe and didnt get any FAANG interviews. I was also targeting data analytics roles and it seems pretty tough. No referrals... I will try again in probably a year but really hoping to hear some success stories. All my offers were in consulting 😭😭😭😭
To the two Publicis guys sitting in front of me on this American Airlines flight to Chicago, stop bragging about never taking a sick day and coming in even when you have the flu... 🙄
I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at: https://www.instagram.com/webelongbythesea/
I always hear stories about how it’s possible to hide in the big 4 and not be staffed...what’s the longest you’ve heard someone pull this off for? How did they do it? Asking for a friend..
Anyone made the switch from Tax/Audit to analyst/Consulting? What's your favorite thing about the switch? I just received an offer from Accenture as an Analyst for something unrelated to my last position. Really fired up. 🎉
I tried to handle a mental health issue on my own, but failed and am at a breaking point. My work is clearly suffering, but I have no medical history to request FMLA or accomodation. What should I do? Request unpaid, unprotected leave? Get a psychiatrist and try to treat now while hoping to improve at work? Something else? Before you ask: taking a week off to recharge won't work. Self-harm isn't an issue beyond risk of failed self-medication.
If layoffs were to happen in the industry, who does it usually affect first? Jr positions? CDs? Random positions?
My Covid antibody test was negative but I swear I had Covid before.....I don’t understand this virus
I Have more sparetime now (Thanks Covid!) and I wanted to invest it in data skills related courses. I found one on data camp called "Data Skills for Business" and then was planning to continue with their "data analyst with Python" career track. What do you think of those two courses? Sinon, do you have any suggestions for better alternatives? Thanks! 🙏🏻
People who have had confidence knocks: how did you get it back? I was laid off, 6M out of work, had therapy, now freelancing but I’m slow af. It’s like my brain only works in 2nd gear now.
