Thoughts on Winston & Strawn (Chicago) vs Katten (Chicago) for lateral move as a mid level in m&a/cap markets? Culture? Quality of work? Watch outs?Winston & Strawn KattenMuchinRosenman LLP
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
I am a Canadian. I have a wealth of experience in Education and Educational Leadership (Doctoral Level). I am looking for a position in Southern California. I would require sponsorship. Leads? Ideas? Thoughts??
Looking for advice on project management software or tools for HR consulting. Our firm doesn’t have anything that is standard or used at all, and while some of us are starting to venture into using Microsoft Teams, I feel like there are so many tools out there and we could be doing things way more efficiently. We work in small client teams (1-3 team members per client usually) and it’s a mix of strategy, tactical, and outsourced HR work. Any suggestions?
How long, on average, did it take you to study before you could pass the PHR/SPHR exam? Did you think it was worth it?
What training or guidance are you giving managers at your firms about managing hybrid teams? There is a lot out there on remote teams, but a lot of us are going back three days a week which means people at home and people in the room. Any tips to pass on?
Hi! For the folks who have recently took the SHRM-CP exam this year, how would you describe the test and any tips you can provide would be helpful!
Hey guys! Our teammate is going through a pretty tough time, I wasn’t sure if this would be appropriate to post, but seeing as though this is a sales group, and my man Braxton is a sales beast... I thought I could try posting and apologize later. If you can give please do, if you can share please, if you can pray please, please do. We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!
Has anyone taken the PHR exam lately? What was the best test prep IYO? Online on demand , online live classes? Are the practice exams worth the cost?
I’m looking for an outside sales rep in Milwaukee for a SaaS company. My top rep last year cleared $800k before stock. If you know of anyone or think you’re a good fit, let me know!
I’m not happy where I’m at, my abilities aren’t being maximized as I’m spread thin, and I know I’m being undervalued. Recently graduated and in property management w/ 3-4 years sales experience. Currently on the hunt for Sales/Account Management roles leaning more towards consumer goods, then tech. Any advice?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
I recently started at a larger software company as an AE. As I’m getting more into the process, I’m finding things odd. Like, cold calls and emails are metrics I’m judged on more than closed won business. I know that’s part of the job but it seems strange I’m judged on it so heavily. And, I seem to be the first real outside AE hire as everyone else seems to have been promoted up from SDR roles, including all of my direct management. I’m questioning if I made the right move. Stick it out or look?
When drafting an MSJ is it better to address the ways that OC might overcome it; or is it better to just generally say why you’re entitled to MSJ and avoid tackling the finer issues that your MSJ presents?
My big Law firm has an affinity group for black attorneys which I really appreciate and have benefited from, but is there if nothing for black non-attorneys. And I know they are dealing with the same issues we are and likely much worse. Is anyone at a big firm that has a group or network for your black non-attorneys?
If I give notice on a holiday week, would the 4 day work week count as a full week for the 2 weeks notice?
When a law firm is looking for a 33/34 act attorney does it need an one working primarily with public companies? Or private companies as well? I’m a corporate and securities attorney, all my clients are private EGC and PE/ VC/ hedge funds, I usually ensure that they are exempted from 33/34 acts
Suggestions for a team-wide task system? The main partner I work for wants me to create and continuously update an internal list of tasks/timeline/important deadlines for every litigation we’re working on. So far I’ve been just updating a Word Doc and sending it to the team every day or two but it’s not very convenient since I don’t know what new tasks the rest of the team is working on. (We use Gmail rather than Outlook if that makes a difference.) Has anyone used Monday software for this?

Changing job after 15 yrs of being in the same company. A little nervous about leaving my comfort zone but also excited to start a new role. What are the things I need to take care of or do before submitting my resignation?
Question about prenatal care and insurance coverage. I have Aetna Innovation Health which covers prenatal care but have received a few bills from my obgyn—seems like costs were partially covered by insurance but I thought all of normal prenatal care was covered. I’m wondering if it’s because of ultrasounds or specific blood tests I took. Is this normal?
They say you’re supposed to have 4x salary in your retirement accounts by age 45. Is that true for us as well? Seems really tough to do with the caps on how much you can put into those accounts

Hi guys - I need some help here. Admittedly I confess that I wasn’t aware of the intricacies around how an FSA account works, and may have done my self a disservice. My last day at work was 3/5 and I have health insurance until the end of the month. However I have $2000 in available FSA balance and I haven’t used any of it, can I still use this balance through the FSA store?
Can someone tell me the pay scale for senior Consultant (or equivalent) at Cognizant - healthcare sector?
I have an interview next week and received a “best practices for interviewing online” from the company’s HR. There is a bullet point that says avoid wearing bright colors. Like of course I’m not going to wear a fluorescent yellow long sleeve shirt, but for some reason this rubs me the wrong way. Am I overthinking this or does anyone else think this is weird?
Just got an offer at ACN as a Strategy Manager and HR made it clear that parental leave was 2 weeks fully paid for men. Theoretically up until 12 weeks is covered by NY State ($900 weekly). What would you do? Have you seen men take a few months off for parental leave in consulting even if unpaid?
How long do I wait until following up after an interview? About 24 hours after the first interview with a recruiter, they reached out about moving me through. It’s been a week after interviewing with some people on the team and I realized I never got a timeline of when to expect to hear back. Should I reach out or is this normal?

I’m looking to leave consulting. But a McKinsey recruiter reached out to me recently about interviewing. I just don’t have the passion to go through case interviews and then actually work in another consulting company as a PPT monkey. Am I crazy ?
