I currently am a senior in a specialized healthcare consulting function. I received a job offer which is less glamorous as a project manager @ a hospital organization. It could help me support my work life balance as I plan to go back to school.... is this a down grade? Is it worth it? Will it keep me out of other consulting jobs? Open to thoughts.

I currently work as an engineer for the utility industry and have been offered a position as a project manager in healthcare. The base pay is the same as what I’m currently getting. But I’d be losing out on a bonus I’d be getting soon, pension plan, 401k matching and I also would have to pay back money for tuition reimbursement. I’m really tired of my current job but I feel like the offer isn’t good from a financial perspective. Any tips or insight that could help? Should I try negotiating?

I’m 29 years old, project manager in the construction industry, living in Toronto. I make roughly 80k with decent benefits..company vehicle, gas card, cell phone. I hate my job, I hate the industry. I want to go back to uni to get a bcom in hopes of getting a job in finance. So my question..has anybody out here had or heard of a similar situation? Any advice?

Hi guys - I saw a job posting in the Toronto area for a sales force process excellence manager which seemed interesting. My role right now is a project manager in the investment and pension industry, with a background in consulting, app an tech support and process automation. I’ve just completed a full implementation of workday and have other SaaS ERP experience. My academic experience is more MIS (business process/strategy/ERP) and hold a PMP, ITIL and CSM. Would this role be a possibility?

Does having Deloitte on your resume have a huge impact? Received an offer from Deloitte USDC to start in Sept but as an Analyst. I am a recent grad but have been working full time during college in industry. Have another offer from industry with better benefits and almost double the pay as a project manager. Wondering if it makes sense to go to Deloitte for 2 yrs for the resume boost and to learn a different skill set.
