Relatively new, just curious - how often do you make mistakes, and how do you recover? I’m finding that I have a ton of anxious about making mistakes, and lately, a ton of anxiety in general. Does it

I always wonder how some careers take off like a rocket ship. Is it timing, luck or pure determination? Here I am at the same level for 5 years. 🤣

Counseling welcomed...If you were a manager today (within the current climate) who is on track for SM promotion this year, would you be less aggressive in pushing promotion candidacy? Why or why not?

Hello partners, have any of you been dealing with new sales? Since things have been quite hectic for clients, how do you follow up in a way that's valuable? Sending content, etc.

Does anyone feel that despite assurances, metrics are closely being monitored and some partners will be separated for poor performance prior to covid 19?

Partner A and B are both really good leaders with similar capabilities and level of intellect, willingness to work hard. One got counseled out (very gradually) while the other is successful...

Early 30s, climbed to partner at a tech boutique. I’m surrounded by eloquent speakers and I’m not one of them (I even stutter often). I feel like an idiot in front of F500 C*Os. How can I improve?

Any partners here who worked in a midtier firm (GT/BDO/RSM) and the big four? What is the compensation difference at the partner level?

We’re working with Chick-fil-A and I’ve received pushback from two separate people about being staffed on the project because of CFA’s stance on LGBTQ issues. (cont’d)

Do partners know each other’s compensation? I see partners selling engagements for vastly different numbers b/w shorter ‘interesting’ strategy work and longer ‘boring’ transformations. Thoughts?
