Trying to get into a big, famous shop. But everything good dies at smaller shops in my town (not NY or LA) bc of the client or CDs that never made it. Feel like I’m stuck in a loop 🔄
Folks, I just got promoted and joined this group. How should I approach selling consulting services? I am delivering services and not had much success farming given the client environment.

Should I leave my agency, where I have good work life balance but shit pay, for blackstone, which will ruin my work life balance but pays double my current salary?

￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
To those who have several years of experience ion TA: Do you think staying in the campus recruiting space limits you? Should one try to get exposure to other HR areas for the long run?
My posture is absolute shit. Tried getting a standing desk and it's great when I stand, but on days I want to sit I can't touch the ground in my chair and feel like a child just to be level. Advice?
Agency announced 16-weeks of paid paternity and I qualify. Only problem, I head up a very lean discipline at the agency and have a strong feeling that taking advantage could cause resentment....
Does anyone work with a quiet talker? And how do you deal with it? I say, “what’s that” and “sorry?” To try to get them to speak louder, but then they go into a long explanation about...

Has MBB lowered their standards? Maybe it’s my time.
Thinking of getting a Sea-Dweller 126600 - there are so many Subs. Finding them relatively easy to get hold of - why does this bowl think they are less popular than the Sub date? I have larger wrists so quite like the 43mm case and the red text tickles my fancy
Laid off. Applying to jobs. Besides networking, what are the top job search platforms/websites? There’s LinkedIn, indeed, monster and Glassdoor. Anything else I’m missing or which is the “best”?
Hey fellow fishes! I’m on my notice period. Confused between the two. One from Big 4 for Consulting profile. Another for PM. What is better in terms of work and career pivot? PS: I have 3 years exp in software consulting

What salary would be the bare minimum to consider buying a 650k house at 3% interest rate? I have no plans of having kids and the idea is dancing in my head. I currently make $140,000
Partner compensation should include a metric where they are evaluated on how much effort and success they have in making new partners. Continually disappointed in the lack of such focus by many.

Case positivity in the Midwest is climbing exponentially, nearly 1000 Americans are dying per day, we are entering the “darkest 6-12 weeks of the pandemic”, traveling to see family for the holidays in-state is being advised against. Tell me again how and why we should even remotely consider going to client sites or into offices without proper enforced social distancing when we can WFH. Why?!
Does anyone have any advice on best way to try to transition from Deloitte Advisory into a Management Consulting position without having any experience in MC?

Anyone else practicing casing for an MBB interview? I’m starting to interview with McKinsey and could really use a partner to practice with.
Let say you’re Big4 advisory staff making 100k doing reporting.. and you have an opportunity to go to senior-level MBB at 150k to work in AI. Would you leave the Big4 opp even though you have a high
