Got hit up by a recruiter for a position I'm actually (for once) interested in. The only thing is that I know the people running the business quite well. What do I do?
Being offered 140k + 20% performance bonus for Tech Lead role in New York City with Capegemini. No signing bonus and relocation based on actual expenses How good/bad is this offer?
Facing a career decision: do I take the pay raise, or the position that I'm more interested in?
First phone technical interview with google for SWE (Software Engineer) role. Would like some insight on what to expect and how to do well?
Was told I’d only have one round (4 interviews), each split 50/50 on case/behavioral. This is for an Associate position and will be interviewing with AP/P/SP level. Is this typical? Since I see most people have multiple rounds.
Have an approved i140 and getting a promotion from Mgr to Snr. Mgr. Does it require any filings or adjustments with USCIS?
I've been passed up for promotion. I know that if my mental health had been better this past year, I probably would have been promoted. Spent too many days just trying to survive rather than excel. 😡
Does EY have a managing director role in consulting? Trying to understand how their levels compare to PwC.
Considering leaving EY for a 300 FTE consulting firm, mainly govt sector, for a strategic talent role (non-client facing). Current Manager in a long-term product management role. Offer is 30% increase, director title, and fully remote. Concerned about jumping to a company I had never heard of prior to LinkedIn connection. Thoughts? 30% too low for this type of jump?
Bain: can someone please tell me what the “hiring exercise” entails as part of the interview process?
Weird combination of de-facto self-promotion under poor guise of advertising Becker’s products PLUS humble-brag of winning the EWS award. Gotta love it!
Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
How do I tell a fellow colleague, mgr and a friend that he needs to start developing work products and not only just review & provide feedback? Promotion to mgr doesn't mean no work by self at all....
Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
What is the % raise for a Tier 3 in Tax?
My off-cycle promotion was announced today as it was getting deferred from last 2 year-end cycles. I was happy with the news and then I was told 3% raise. I am totally shocked and feel rather insulted at the number. Reason- I was already at upper range in the current title! (I know not too much context here) How should I talk to my manager? How much to express? Am I over reacting.
Hiring Managers: if you have a candidate who has done the exact same job before and interviewed well, and another candidate who hasn’t done the exact same job before but has transferable skills, what would make you pick the second candidate? When I get feedback from interviews, it’s often ‘we are looking for someone who has done this role before’, and I don’t know how to move into a slightly different career if I can’t seem to land a job to begin to get experience in it.
How soon is too soon to ask for a raise? I know the raises in this industry are usually pretty standardized, so wanted to hear some insight about this topic. Thanks!
On a flight (yes, but not for work) and a morbidly obese person next to me is all up in my space - there is no way for this person not to touch me. If people cannot fit into standard seat sizes (cont)

Where do you invest your money? What investments have worked for you? Has anyone invested in rental properties? I was planning on buying land in DFW area? Not sure if it a good investment
So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
how does your firm staff you on projects, and are there a lot of people on the bench at any given time? are people worried when they are on the bench? just want to know how it is for everyone else

How do you handle people who are like "I work 9-5, I can't get out of work, can you interview after?" No, because those are our business hours. Do you think we just work non-stop? Also, does anyone else get calls from applicants after 9 pm at night? Like I don't understand what makes people think that's okay? Then again, I am new to New Jersey, Kentucky was never like that.

HELP! Roommate is being insistent on not allowing either of us to go out due to covid (except for groceries). We live in Chicago, and phase 4 is starting in a few wks meaning most places will re-open with limited capacity. I’m not trying to go crazy here and hit up every club/restaurant/public place. But I’d like to enjoy a meal out or a small gathering at a friend’s place, things like that (w/ all proper precautions in place) but roommate is not cool with it -how to approach?
I think it’d be helpful if those of us who have exited into Bay Area tech start a comp thread so others can benchmark. 2 yrs post-MBA BizOps manager 175 base + 225 RSUs (publicly traded, 4 yr vest)
Hi All, could someone tell me what the M3 / M4 / M5 (if there's one) compensation (broken down by salary and bonus) is for EY's Strategy & Ops (formerly OTS) practice? Is growth there still robust?
