Hey folks - reaching out for advice. Fmr LS strategy consultant that moved onto a VC/BD role at a seed fund. Was just recently accepted to a state medical school (nothing special but I received scholarship and won’t have to take out a loan to pay for school), but of course it is the opportunity to train as a physician. Given the current economic outlook, what would you do if you were in my shoes? If you didn’t go to medical school, what would you try to do?

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.

Automation(RPA) vs Cloud - Exit opportunities and career growth Currently an automation consultant at Deloitte, primarily doing Robotic Process Automation solution architecture and development. Got an internal offer to change to Deloitte’s Cloud Engineering offering, where I am considering pros/cons. RPA is fairly niche, while Cloud seems more general with multiple exit opportunities. (1/2)
Currently a consultant making ~104k base. Will likely be promoted to manager this year (assuming that’s ~130k base). Have the opp to move to a startup company paying ~115k with no bonus - the role is much more aligned to what I am interested in/industry I want to be in long term. My job at ACN is fine & I work with great people & am learning a lot, but I am not at all passionate about the work/industry I’m in. Is this job worth the jump if I’m 95% sure of promo, or do I wait until promo to look?

Has anyone left Big 4 to go independent with current client? My current client offered me a full time role but I want to come in as an independent consultant. I’d save them money and think they’d go for it. I’d use it as my first client and look to try my own consulting business. It’s always been my dream and I don’t see myself going through the ringer to make partner although I respect folks who do a ton. Just not for me. Too much mental health issues already. Can’t add that stress.

Need honest opinion from 🐠. Background: previously a big four consultant in tech consulting. Didn’t like the tech implementation work at all and needed to pivot. After obtaining my masters in data science, I landed a good role that actually uses what I’ve learned. However, this role also made me realize that data science (at least in this organization) has a very low ceiling, and is also highly on the technical side. I see myself eventually wanting to move to leadership/management positions.

The reason I want to make the switch is 1) I think consulting work is generally more interesting; 2) more exit opportunitie

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
I'm new to the Fidelity HSA account. If I have all my money in my HSA invested into stocks, bonds, etc. (No cash balance at all) and I suddenly have to pay for a medical expense, do I have to first manually sell the stocks to pay off my medical bill, or will Fidelity automatically sell the stocks for me so that I can pay for my medical bill?

Why do big 4 people go get a top MBA and join big 3 consulting firm instead of internally move to advisory service/consulting?
Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC. Currently working on a high profile client and have a decent chance of being promoted to manager next year but will probably go through hell this year to get it and it’s not a sure thing. Should I take the money and run?
Does anyone else worry about their big 4 career for not being the most apt at small talk. I'm worried I'm not the most memorable member of my team for my clients and what it would mean going forward.
Wonder if people who claim to be more effective and efficient thanks to WFH and wish to never go back to the office are the same people whose jobs are more likely to get off-shored/ outsourced? At the end of the day, if it's just a transactional, "follow-the script" kind of job requiring minimal interaction/relationship/collaboration with other team members, why would the companies be incented to keep paying salaries + benefits when they can just as easily ship these jobs overseas?
