in discussions for a project manager role. what is the impact, if any, of me getting promoted to senior consultant in the middle of discussions? would I be able to increase my ask? seems a bit arbitrary to be able to ask for more money from one day to the next because my title officially changed at that time

How can you work in consulting if you want to take pride in your work? My senior manager just told me that the key to success in my current role is emotionally detaching from my work so that I don't care when my controlling client insists I do something absolutely stupid that I wholeheartedly disagree with. How can anyone truly enjoy being a professional pushover??

Have you ever accepted a job offer as a candidate(or had a candidate accept your offer of employment as a recruiter/hiring manager), and then rescind? I have 2 opportunities but the timelines are misaligned. I think I'm shortly getting an offer from one while I'm midway thru the process with the other. I don't want to end up in a position of saying yes but then getting a better offer and rescinding. I don't think I can ask for more than a week to think about it. Any advice on best way to handle?

I left auditing for an accounting manager role. My company is in the medical device space and, in working on monthly close tasks, I notice that some sales people do very well. I know sales is more commission heavy, but part of me still thinks about the “what if” I was able to switch. In getting to know some salespeople, they seem to come from all types of backgrounds, from business to public health. I have limited knowledge in the medical space, but I’m willing to learn. Any advice? Drop it?

What are some useful goals for a Senior Consultant looking to get ready for a Manager role? My Coach doesn’t have much interest in my development and I’m in the process of looking for a new one, but meanwhile I’m working on building my own list of skills I need to work to become a good manager. What does a brilliant Engagement Manager look like? Any thoughts are much appreciated!

Had an interview yesterday and the hiring manager told me at the end of it he thinks I’m a great candidate & I should be hearing from him soon. I never actually spoke to a recruiter prior to the interview, and so I emailed them to ask what the salary range was. She called me back and we discussed salary (much lower than what I’m looking for btw). She asks me how it went, and I say I think it went well. She then goes “oh really? I mean you don’t know what the competition is like”...I’m like wtf?

Recruiter reached out to me for a Project Manager role saying I was "strongly recommended" (didn't say who, just trying to flatter me?) I've seen others say they always check comp range first to make sure nobody is wasting their time. What's the best way to do so? Something like: "Hi *name*, Thank you for reaching out. I would love to hear more but would like to check the expected compensation range for this role to make sure it is a right fit for my career."

Am I being too sensitive? Interviewed for a Corporate Strategy Manager position at a F50 today and one of the ladies was a White Woman. We get through the interviews and I ask her about the culture. She then proceeded to tell me how it’s really good and even have programs to provide consulting services to NPO that serves impoverished minorities communities and my views and life experiences would definitely bring a good perspective. It honestly made me a little uncomfortable about their culture.

Had a final round interview (3 1-on-1s and one panel presentation) with a healthcare marketing company today for a manager position. Was asked about why I’ve left previous jobs every 1.5-2 years and how they could know that I would stay longer this time. I addressed my past and why this new position interested me, but wondering how others have dealt with this question? The way the question was positioned rubbed me the wrong way but I’d decided to just see how far I could get in the process.

Would you take a manager role when exiting with <2 YOE? Backstory: I gave a high salary range for a company I was interviewing with and during negotiation they couldn’t hit it at the senior associate band so they offered a manager title instead.
