Could someone at Deloitte please share if you can still say remote or are required to go to office? Or any guidance from leadership.
I’ve been sober about 14 months, and now with things opening up more I’ve been going out to dinner, concerts etc with friends. I’ve been finding it hard to have fun, or not get restless while out. I think a large part of this is maybe I find the company around me boring? and they’re also all drinking. Maybe I just needed to write that out and vent to say, I’m bored! Maybe saying that out loud will help me get out of my comfort zone to find new activities that change my outlook.
How much do you guys keep in cash/checking? I have 60k in 401k/ira/investments and 45k accessible in checking. What’s your portfolio looking like?
Hi! Does anyone know of companies in the sports media/content/marketing space looking to hire?

Would be great if I could be put in touch with any recruiters or hiring managers that might be interested!

Hi fishes, are there any us/uk Or other companies that allow work from home from India?? I m looking for QA positions
I'm thinking about leaving the advertising world for qual research. I love being a strategist but I loath the client BS and the internal agency egos. I found a research company that does interesting bespoke qual that will still allow me to be creative and strategic. Plus an actual life outside of work. But it would mean a 20-40% pay cut. Has anyone ever been in this position or have some advice?

Husband Relies on Me for Lunch - I know this is dumb, but before the pandemic, my husband ate lunch at the office and I was generally in charge of dinner. He’s super flexible with buying takeout so I never found it annoying. Since the pandemic began though, my husband has begun relying on me to provide him lunch while WFH. I’m busy during the day, and we have different lunch preference schedules. He does not get how annoying it is to me to have to be in charge of his lunch. Am I in the wrong?
Hi pwc folks. What would be a reasonable compensation for App and Emerging tech Manager role US at Pwc with 12 years of experience. Currently at Accenture. Having a partner round next week. Hoping that goes fine.

Thoughts on + 1s at client dinners? I think they just shouldn’t be there. A creative asked to bring his gf in front of the crew & client. I felt I couldn’t say no and regret it.
Anyone at Fragomen or Berry Appleman can share some insights? Billable hour, salary, benefits? Bay Area.
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
Need advice... I am currently a functional lead with limited knowledge of technology. I have around 15 years of experience and generally play a Scrum Master role in various projects. I’ll be hopefully promoted to Manager in next 3 months I want to upscale myself. I am planning to study microservices, APIs and cloud computing, to stay relevant and employable in near future. Is it worth pursuing technical skills at such stage of my career? I am willing to put efforts in right area.
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
I was looking at referral bonuses and some can be pretty high. If anyone is potentially interested in Accenture, I’ll split the bonus with you 50:50.
What do you wear to interviews? I like wearing a full suit but I've interviewed at a few startups and felt over dressed. Have an interview at a major agency. Do you still rock a suit or another style?
Former colleague (involuntarily separated) just asked me about a headhunter firm called Bluefin. Anyone have any experience with them? Supposedly they focus on out-placing consulting talent from Big 4 & MBB...?
Just picked up my first 1983 case and I’m looking for the Bible on litigating 1983 claims. I’m digging my way through case law now to get a general overview of the landscape, but I’m going to want to learn from the best and brightest on this. If it matters, claim will be in the 8th circuit and it relates to a client who caught a rubber bullet with their face. I know the unlawful assembly case law is against us, and it doesn’t appear an actual seizure occurred, so this is going to be tricky.
Miami - going to be there in early dec and staying at Hilton downtown. Any recommendations for cool Miami things to do? Food? Drink? No, cannot go to Liv (as much as I wish I could!)
With over 15 yrs marketing, tech and ops consulting in agencies, tech and startups, is it worth even considering roles in MBB or similar? Any advice is welcome. Deciding on staying independent or not
So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in 2 years (and I’m actually pretty good at my job.) But I just want to say, that each time my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase. So jokes on them! I start my new job next week, so we shall see! Good luck to all of you who are starting over! You will succeed and know your worth!
Fish….. have discussed this w many ppl and so far have 1/10 as supportive of this idea but no clear feedback about why this idea won’t work.. Would like to present a 5-10 yr NPV of the value I bring to firm (ie my bill rate x hours worked - salary) in order to illustrate why an increase in compensation for me would make sense to them - why wouldn’t it be persuasive!?
