| Money Talk|| re: does your company still offer a pension? - MStant1 on 2/24/15 at 6:09 am|
Mine does; however if you're not an executive, then it's relatively small.
The real pension starts for the executives. Rumor is that Non-equity executives get something on average in the realm of 150k per year in retirement. Equity partners get something on average in the realm of 500k per year. ...

[quote]We always hear that CLM is the greatest HC for LSU of All-Time and I agree. However, we don't have a great coaching history. Before Saban came in 2000 we were very average all the way back into the 80s when Charles McClendon was running things. So it is easy to look at our recent history and ...

| SEC Rant|| re: Why does Jesse Palmer wear his suits so tight? - MStant1 on 11/30/14 at 9:51 am|
That said I do think that Jesse has a tendency to over tailor - which is the unfortunate trend at the moment. Jesse could afford to have everything taken out by a quarter of an inch and it would probably be just fine. I do agree with others in the sentiment that he dresses way better than the others...

[quote] Definitely depends on service line and city. Audit in houston you are basically a lock. Advisory/consulting in Dallas its a toss up. Basically more people want to live in Dallas and there is less work. Not familiar with NYC though in terms of offers etc.[/quote]
Good point. I'm thinking t...

[quote]I don't work for EY so no advice there. But you have to do something pretty stupid to not get an offer after an office visit with any of the big 4[/quote]
Very common misconception, and it is also very wrong. I've seen plenty of smart kids not get offers after an office visit.

It's honestly impossible for me to gauge on glassdoor. For my job and title there is like an 80K bandwidth from the low to high according to Glassdoor which is very realistic.
The reason it is so big is because a) annual raises are commonly double digit percentage b) There are informal sub-level...

[quote]If you assume that all recent grads are entirely fungible and indistinguishable. But that's not right, either, or you wouldn't bother with searching resumes and interviewing.

[quote]If college grads had no leverage, they would all be paid minimum wage. That obviously isn't true. Contrary to the boomer flame being run on this board, companies don't hire you because they're doing you some kind of favor for which you should be eternally grateful. They hire you because the...
