Anyone here who works in Anheuser-Busch?
Is there a prestige gap between the big 4 and ACN that is big enough to be worth taking a detour to the big four before exiting consulting? Depending on your perspective you might not see acn as less prestigious than say ey/pwc/kpmg but curious what people think the general perception is. (Not talking about strategy& or Parthenon)
Deloitters! How is human capital regarded vs S&O at Deloitte? Compensation, exit ops, projects, etc.
Looking to create a tool we can use for stakeholder relationship tracking. We want to be able to hear a clients name, look them up in the tool, see info about their role and department, and see which of our consultants have worked with them before and on what projects. Trying to think of an easy to use, interactive tool beyond something like excel. What’s something you’ve used for this before? Don’t think we’ll be going as far as purchasing a license for a CRM software
Does anyone have a framework or other resources for scaling up a small workforce in a strategic way?
Work at a hold co and tired of hearing the ceo’s are in it with us and taking cuts? I call BS on that! They are only reducing salary and will still earn millions. Omnicom John Wren - $19,818,780 in 2019, his 2020 sacrifice = 5.05% reduction. IPG – Michael Roth $16,590,172 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice is undisclosed. WPP Mark Read £2,594,000 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 1.88% reduction. Publicis Arthur Sadoun €3,265,800 in 2019 his 2020 sacrifice = 4.6% reduction.

DoorDash recruiter reached out for a role, proceeded to send me the analytical exercise a few days later. Prior to her sending me the exercise I realized I don’t want to go forward with the interview process as I’m too slammed with work at the moment. Can I just tell her that I no longer want to move forward? Will there be negative consequences?
How do you know if you’re getting a good severance package? And what / how should you negotiate ?
Any recommendations on workout apps, especially things you can do in a hotel room? The hotel I am in has a really crappy “fitness area”, and not a very safe place to run. Thx
Why does everyone preach DEI but fail to recognize that people also grow up in different backgrounds and socioeconomic classes? Increasing diversity in these elite firms also means that you will be at team dinners with people who didn’t grow up with well off parents and experiences living in the finer things in life or enjoying the same things outside of work - but not all teams are cognizant of that in their social conversations and can unintentionally make those ppl feel different. End rant.
If you’re applying to another consulting job without a referral quit being selfish and help a brother (or sister) out. Help us, help you, to help us, getting a referral bonus
Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?

Move-up Anyone seen or know anyone that traded-up from one MBB to another MBB? Eg. A BCG PL hired as Principal at Bain; a Principal at Bain hired as Partner at McK; a consultant at McK hired a M etc
New to freelance: 40 hours/week in contract but put on a high profile project that requires weekend work or overtime. Bill? If so, how would you go about it since the contract is 40 hours/week? Should I just include it in the invoice/timesheet or should I also plan to have a conversation with my supervisor or HR or Accounts Payable beforehand? Also keeping in mind that I hope to get contract extended, which is in my contract [tentative].
What's the deal if you have a vaca planned but you are swapping firms and the vaca will take place while employed at new firm? You tell them during interview?
I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.
Hey folks - CSR question. Do you know if we get Delta mqms if you use the CSR travel credits through the chase portal?
We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.

I understand we all come from different. Our communities are different and there are different needs. Given that, should there be minimum working conditions and minimum salary guidelines for the teaching profession?We’ve got standards we have to follow for the teaching profession. But we’ve got a hodgepodge of working conditions and salaries. What could possibly be a basic ask for this work?
