Curious the pay difference. What general pay range (US) can someone with 3-5 years of PMO/functional consulting for SAP S4HANA Cloud & On Prem experience expect at a big 4 firm with an MBA(not that having the MBA matters a ton)?
If switching from one big 4 firm to another how does switching over cell phone plans work?
On a flight (yes, but not for work) and a morbidly obese person next to me is all up in my space - there is no way for this person not to touch me. If people cannot fit into standard seat sizes (cont)
With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
In the event you don’t have enough billable hours/low on projects to fill your timesheet, you ________________
Have a call on Friday with the CEO of an environmental entrepreneurship non-profit. It could lead to a professional opportunity and maybe even billable work I can refer to my firm down the line. I’m going in with an open mind but little concrete information on his entity and goals and ways I could get involved. What questions would you ask such a person?
I just had an employee tell me they are on the verge of quitting due to burnout- actually going to quit but was told to talk to HR for options (we don't have any in place). The manager wants to keep them as they are one of our best employees. Any recommendations on how to help alleviate burnout when the cause is from customers rather than the company? Is it worth it to let the employee leave and spend months looking for a replacement causing more stress/burnout with others?

Spotted on morning flight to LAX: multiple people wearing “KPMG future diversity leader” purple T-shirts. What’s this about?
I was recently let go. When I interview, should I be upfront about this, or should I keep it vague — “looking for new opportunities”? It seems like it will come up when people ask why I’m leaving.
For those in senior positions- how are you not constantly worried about the success of your work? There’s so many things that can affect P&L that are out of your control, how do you stay calm and not feel like you’re going to get fired as soon as growth slows?
I’ve been working 12 hours a day minimum since I was 11 years old .. so now 12 hour days feel like play for me. Also put me infront of a screen for 24 hours and I won’t move until I need to go to sleep . I have been like that since I was a kid so now it’s in my blood. I never felt I was working. I’m always curious and my mind goes 1000 miles an hour . What about you? Do you feel it’s work and CBF after 8 hours? Or you feel it’s your hood and you can’t have enough of it?
I know it’s the start of Hispanic Heritage Month because of all the “CAN ANYONE HELP ME FIND A LATINX DE&I CONSULTANT ASAP?!” and “I NEED A LIST OF SPANISH VENDORS!”-type messages flying around the industry behind the scenes today.

Should you consider MBA as experience while doing salary negotiation? Note:- HR always says MBA will just give a small advantage over other candidates. For HR, MBA is piece of paper which you get by studying 6 hrs
Would you rather work for an older, more established company with lots of employees, average salary and a slow climb of the ladder to leadership? OR Would you rather work for a relatively new startup with 2000 employees, GREAT salary and quick career progression, but alot of learning because it’s a startup.? P.S. both companies are known across the globe.
Moving to final loop interview round @ startup with members of the team. Recruiter said convo is focused on enhancing my understanding of role + who I’d be working with. Any recs for good questions to ask beyond the standard ones?

Anyone from LBMC care to share how’s it like working there? I have an interview this week for a tax senior (remote) position. What’s the wlb and pay compared to big4?LBMC
Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!
