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’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

Oliver Wyman revenue down 13% in Q2 from 2019 - not bad in middle of covid -19. YTD down 7%. Thought this was an important benchmark when people ask how “strategy” consulting is doing
For people who had mild symptoms of COVID, how long did you wait until you ventured back out to run errands or go to the store? It’s been about two weeks now for me and I’m feeling pretty much back to normal other than still no taste/smell and a little stuffy nose.

Anyone is willing to switch to remotely after the covid? I feel like working from home has given me some extra time to do my chores since I don't commute. Of course, I still perform the same amount of work and it has no impact of my efficiency

TIL that 'Big 4' = PWC, Deloitte, EY, and KPMG. Is Big 4 considered 'elite'? I've always viewed them as a step over from ACN, whereas I've seen Bain/BCG/McKinsey as a step up. Too much ACN Kool-aid?
EY hasn't delivered on promises made during my hiring. It's time to go. I've been a top rated SM for the last 5 years, with deep, relevant, cross sector experience in IoT, RPA, and digital where to?

I am interviewing for Google tomorrow. While I feel confident in some ways, I also feel like I am way out of my league. I am not an engineer. I am a long time product manager and marketer from the likes of Microsoft and other NW tech companies. I still feel like there is so much for me to learn. I am many years out of college and just wish I had more confidence in my abilities. I miss my younger self and her kick ass and take names attitude! ;)
How long does ZS typically take to give final round interview results? I thought I did really well on the struct/unstruct cases as well as the behavioral, but now I’m totally second guessing myself since the recruiter said it would be 24hrs and I haven’t heard back a week and a half later ... (Undergrad Hire)
Industry hands out amazing job titles while consulting has basic titles for different milestones. I feel like it's hurting us when we look for exit strategies.
