With all the change happening right now, my one hope is the PwC and other firms will stop treating their staff like they own their lives. I would hope 7 day 90+ hour weeks will go away at some point.…
How do you become a senior partner like Tim Ryan or heads of lines of service or firm functions? Like I imagine it’s a grooming process that starts before you’re even a partner to some extent? Do you …
PwC’s CEO Tim Ryan in the news! “When we looked at the teams inside PwC that were servicing our top clients six years ago, the…
Anyone knows what happened to Paul Ryan? I really liked him and hoping to see him as an active Republican
So PwC actually cut their bonus pools this year over 2 years ago. The RL webcast just flashed up that the largest bonus is Tier 1 directors and SMs at 9%. Didnt Tim Ryan just say the bonus pools were …
First Ryan Reynolds and now Rihanna. Why is it that actors and artists are making better advertisers than most of us? https://www.boredpanda.com/wholesome-masculinity-plus-size-model-savagex-rihanna/…
M 🐠 here: trying to get back into dating and realized I have no idea how to dress anymore lol (spent the last decade raising kids). Who wants to be the Ryan Gosling to my Steve Carell? Any men’s styl…
Love how much Ryan Reynolds gets fawned over as if he doesn't face 1/10th the obstacles the rest of us do.
Serious question - 1. Why isn’t Ryan Cohen just cashing out his stake? 2. Why isn’t GameStop issuing more shares?
Business-speak is so gag inducing. No Ryan, you won’t be “out of pocket” tomorrow, you’ll just be unavailable. No, Stacy, “ask” is not a noun, you’re looking for the word request.
I recently developed a habit where I sneak off to the bathroom in the middle of the work day and bring up a sad video clip like Wade’s death in Saving Private Ryan to help me cry uncontrollably for 30…
Anyone on here work for Ryan? Curious what the firm is like and if they have more relaxed independence restrictions sine they don't audit.
Looking to spend ~$500-$1K on a beater tool watch I don’t have to worry about. Something robust and sporty. Obviously micro brands and Seiko are all great, but considering something a bit off the beaten path. What do y’all think of the Hamilton watch that’s featured in the Jack Ryan show? Let me know any other suggestions!
Anyone have first hand experience working at Ryan, LLC? Pay/Culture/Leadership/Diversity etc..
Anyone else over hearing about Ryan Reynolds
Does anyone have experience with Ryan LLC?
Ryan had his partner call last week. If things don't change in six months, layoffs will begin. It would be much better to ask people to take a pay cut, or a few weeks off without pay. Some people …
Who wants to weigh in on why Ryan Reynolds is better at advertising than most major advertising agencies? 😂
Best war movie? I'm going with Saving Private Ryan
Canadian men are much more underrated and hotter than American guys - Ryan Reynolds, Shawn Mendes, Kevin Zegers - eye candies 😍
Thoughts on Ryan Holiday and his books? Ive found his books to be very insightful so just wondered if others in our profession did as well.
Help me settle a debate. Does any firm consider the kind of cost take-out/downsizing work that Ryan Bingham does in Up In The Air as strategy consulting?
Looking for an in at Maximum Effort, Ryan Reynolds’ agency. Anyone willing to make an intro? I’m very nice.
Would love any support here if possible. Just need more folks to like this post and tag Ryan Roslansky to get his attention. I am trying to have a conversation with him about their biased algorithm.
Soooo sick of people obsessing over the Ryan Reynolds work. It only works because he’s Ryan Reynolds.
What do these shows have in common? Shooter. Jack Ryan. Taken. Strike Back. Fauda. Quantico. Body Guard. The Crown. Downton Abbey. Schitts Creek. Answer: All shows I have binge watched! Looking for re…
Playing for the Chip. Week 1 of 2, do I start Kyler vs Philly D or Ryan Tannehill vs Detroit?
On the last webcast, Tim Ryan made it seem like we aren’t going back to work in the same way we used to. He didn’t elaborate. Do you think that meant more flexibility? Anything else it might have mean…
Wow Tim Ryan is the real MVP.
Anyone work for Ryan? Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn, but honestly never really heard of this accounting firm before? Curious to check it out given Deloitte is not doing any pay raises.
Ryan LLC is hiring everywhere. I would like to leave my firm (Big 4), but I have never encountered a past employee with good things to say about this company. Does anyone have firsthand experience?
Say what you want but Ryan Reynolds does it again. I sometimes feel like he's 10 years ahead of any agency on this planet. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8fqyM7YAJWE…
Ryan Murphy is the new Aaron Spelling. Big rich producer making money off of cheesy shlock. I guess you can’t take the Indiana out of the boy. Heart’s in the right place though. Bless his heart.
What are the best shows on Prime? Seen Fleabag, Jack Ryan, Modern Love and the Romanoffs so far ✌🏼
I have Brees and Ryan. Both are predicted to perform about the same this week. Any hot takes on starting one over the other?
Funny. But question. Is it more of an ad for Mint Mobile, or more of an ad for Ryan? https://www.thedrum.com/news/2020/05/05/ryan-reynolds-launches-powerpoint-presentation-instead-ad-mint-mobile…
Ryan Reynolds biggest creative achievement for Mint Mobile is figuring out a way to say a phone service was plant based and not needing to disclaim it in his latest ad.
Fishbowl: What is the most prestigious project within the most prestigious division within the most prestigious company within the most prestigious industry? Also, how do I get promoted fastest and make the most money within whatever that is?
Any other creatives sick of being strategists?
Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck? I got an Ivy League exec mba in 2020 as well, which hasn’t yet been reflected in my big 4 comp (we mostly didn’t do raises because of covid last year). Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?
Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable. I feel like most of my daily joy used to come from live interaction with people. I know many of y’all are really thriving on WFH and need your help / thoughts on how best to adjust. TIA!!
Any one who has done CSCP certification and can help guide through the exam preparation ?? Does it help when applying to MBB??
Anyone else having crazy layoffs this week? 😞
Why do some companies ask for 8+ YoE + MBA for mid-management positions (Manager, Sr. manager, Associate, Sr. Associate). At 8 YoE the super talented people would probably be looking for director level roles. Wouldn’t it be better to get them at like 3-5YoE?
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.
How difficult are the GREs? How about getting into a top 10-20 MBA program? I want to do consulting at MBB eventually. I graduated in the top 10% of undergrad w/ honors, if that matters.
I read an article about companies planning to increase remote work even after it’s safe to go back to work. The first question was “How does your company measure productivity?”. Why don’t big 4 consider other was to capture productivity? Utilization is such a huge factor in big4 but capturing productivity within that is a lot harder to measure. Thoughts on big4 moving to a productivity model over hours model?
Any other staff feeling like they might try to leave audit earlier than they planned to? Love my firm, but WFH is brutal and the people I’ve formed connections with have mostly left or WFH 99% of the time which leads to less social interaction with them. I figured I’d stick it out for 3 years or so, but with another busy season looming in a few months I’ve started looking at other roles through my network, and wasn’t sure if I was the only one.
On a project where we fly out Monday evening or Tuesday morning and are remote Fridays and Mondays 🤤🤤
Has anyone ever done Tech/implementation consulting with the FDIC? Wondering how they are as a client and what the work atmosphere is like there
After paying off my credit cards and medical bills, I'm sitting on my couch binge watching 'You're the Worst' and eating chocolate cereal. #adultlife #cerealfordinner
Has anyone seen a resource pooling model work well/ poorly in implementation? I’m curious if there’s some lessons learned that my team can leverage. I have some concerns about partial resources getting burned out.
McKinsey has pretty traditionally been considered the best of MBB, followed by BCG, then Bain. Given all the scandals its dealt with this past few years do you think its standing within MBB will drop? I think its too big to fall out of the group but I definitely am leaning towards BCG being the new preferred/top option for people trying to break in to consulting.
Anyone know what a Structured Finance Analyst / Senior makes at Big 4? Specifically NYC? Can’t find much info
Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?
Do you take the Chief Diversity Officer at your company seriously? Does anyone? Curious about how this role is typically viewed. Please explain your perspective.
CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
Welcome introverts! Bowl leader here. Hope most of you are about to enjoy a week of peaceful WFH. While here, let me know what you hope to get from this group & what you want to see more of. ⬇️
Anybody have intel about typical Palo Alto (start up/PE funded) VP role compensation packages. Meaning typical ranges for: base salary, bonus, stock options, equity positions, etc...
How’s the work/life balance and salary at the company you’re at now compared to where you’ve been previously?
Applied for Corp Strat role with one of the largest independent financial brokers / advisers firms in the US. What do you think I can expect in the interview process? Never interviewed for such roles and that too, for a financial services firm that plays in the financial advisory / investment management space. Pleas help!!!
Which agencies are more innovative, tech driven? I feel like there will be more gamification, experiential in the future although in the end, it all comes to the client's decision.
First day back on the job after paternity leave. Never had a harder time leaving the house than this morning...
At a boutique healthcare firm with very limited scope. How do I learn more broad consulting principles and how to think like a consultant at large?
Ok be honest, candidates. I really love this set of questions, I’ve been considering shifting my current interview style to these questions - I think they really give you an idea of who this person would be within the work setting. But the questions almost feel too deep for a recruiter to ask. What would you think if a recruiter took a different path and asked these questions instead of the usual ones? https://blog.shrm.org/blog/9-interesting-interview-questions-that-actually-reveal-a-lot-about-candidat
Do you guys know when will your firm start hiring again? Will get out this year and may have 6 mons training to be reserved and desperately looking for Audit/Advisory job but I guess I just not getting out at the right time.
Health care is being rationed in several states. This is getting serious. This is definitely worth learning more about as hospital refuse critically ill patients who do not have covid. Emergency rooms are literally flooded, critically ill pts (w covid) wait hours on end in their car to get in to see a doctor. What a MESS https://www.adn.com/nation-world/2021/09/13/alabama-man-dies-after-being-rejected-by-43-hospitals-in-3-states-family-says-as-covid-packs-icus/ https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/alaska-joins-idaho-in-rationing-health-care-as-hospitals-are-packed-with-covid-patients-and-who-says-africa-is-being-left-behind-in-vaccine-push-11631717516 https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2021/09/14/amid-covid-19-overload-providence-alaska-medical-center-now-prioritizing-care-under-crisis-standards/

Hi fellow EA fish 🐟🐠🐡 I’m hoping to make comp comparisons between MBB and the Big 4 since Glassdoor and other websites aren’t that accurate. Please feel free to DM!
