Is there anyone here from Baird willing to chat on a role I’m interested in/potentially provide a referral? Currently a consultant at a big 4 firm looking to transition.
Are there any differences between working as a S1 consultant in big 4 versus senior consultant in industry? Is 10% worth the move?

Why do you see so many white blonde women in leadership but so few POC men / women in leadership? How did they ascend the ladder so well when people generally consider being POC and being a woman to be equal when it comes to diversity initiatives?
I applied for this job in industry 6 weeks ago. I’ve been through the first round of interviews about 4 weeks ago. I keep getting told I’m moving to the next round (I check in about every 10 days), but what the heck is taking so long?
Shut down at 7pm every day to invest time in my round 2 apps. Set personal priorities and team's expectations. My 1 rating won't help me if I don't get into an MBA program

Does lowballing your salary expectations early on in an interview have any negative implications on total comp down the road? Or does this more serve to see if you and the company are aligned on a general range?
Just got finished with two huge projects I had to turnover in a very tight timeframe. One of them barely had any revisions and the other got clobbered with redlines. Clearly the latter was the one I was working on at 2am. This is my very first assignment as a first year at big law and I wanted to make a good first impression. I feel like I squandered that opportunity.😣

For those who have CDD experience - does the short length of engagements (3-5 weeks) always lead to long hours? Should I expect to average 60 hours a week even though I would only be staffed on one engagement?
For those who moved from audit to advisory, would you have started your career in advisory instead of audit if that was an option or do you think your audit experience was still valuable?
Anyone ever made the move from a smaller market with great work-life balance to a bigger market with poor work life balance in order to do more sophisticated work/more money? Currently only required to bill 1800, but I’m so sick of these lower middle market deals with sketchy clients and solo-practitioner opposing counsel.
Are you or have you been the sole HR person at the company? What are the pros & cons? I haven’t been, but a recruiter reached out with an opportunity to be one. They currently use the parent company’s HR but are buying themselves out to be a stand alone firm. TIA!

Respect your coworkers and their time. Asking people to “stay on” at the end of a zoom to spring an impromptu secondary meeting on them is bush league.

BAH 🐠, asking for a friend: She was contacted by a recruiter for a PM position in the SIG but doesn't know what level it is and hasn't heard back from the recruiter yet. She's got two interviews for it tomorrow with two principals. Given that limited info, any idea what level it might be? I presume either LA or SA given her background (~12 YOE, mostly PM in fed space) but she hasn't given me any additional info to ask y'all about.

Thoughts on "unlimited PTO"? I'm interviewing at a place that keeps bringing it up as a benefit. They say that corporate supports people taking a week to two weeks off. Maybe I'm cynical, but I've heard that at companies that offer this this, people rarely use the PTO or the PTO is rarely approved. What have your experiences been with this?
I put in 6% to my 401k to get the 100% match. I have $4k in a savings account as my Emergency Fund. I have another $4k i want to invest. I opened a Roth IRA with Charles Schwab, but didn’t put it in yet. I am confused on Roth IRA concept because I am taking taxed dollars and putting it into an account, but if they offer traditional IRA isn’t it already taxed? How does that work? Im fairly new to Personal Finance (24 Years old).
