given the current climate, what are your thoughts on the creative group or creative circle?
The Creative Group
With all the recent layoffs I really hope Deloitte is not internally celebrating their “revenue growth”. For those laid off, wishing you all the best in your job search.💛
If you're interviewing at a firm that markets itself to laterals as a biglaw refuge with low billable requirements and quality of life is it okay to say in an interview that those are one of the reasons you're considering the firm?
Currently KPMG Strategy, thinking about moving over to ACN “Strat”. Will be a level up from where I am, KPMG Strategy M to ACN SM, which is a nice bump in pay. Probably would be KPMG D in 2 years, so this accelerates me a bit. Other than the compensation, any reason why NOT to do this? Looking at a 25-30% base pay bump.

Science has spoken... thoughts? http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-30/bilnd-recruitment-trial-to-improve-gender-equality-failing-study/8664888?pfmredir=sm
Recruiter asked me where I was living and I told her the nearest big city to my house. She then asked if I lived in the city or the suburbs. Besides homes office do they ask this to see if you should get a higher/lower salary depending on your response?
How many days of PTO do you all actually take a year? I'd say I probably average around 8 days (not including holidays)
Just had my 3rd interview last Thursday, with my potential AD partner. Haven’t heard anything back since. Should I assume they’ve moved on or is this pretty normal? They rushed me through all the interviews and the first CD gave my book more compliments than Ive had in an interview, so part of me thought it’d be quicker. Dying to find FT now as freelancing for the last year has been rough.
Is giving a 1 week notice okay? Waiting for everything to clear with new role before I talk to my current company. I am also taking some time off between job transition.
Looking for help to negotiate offer: recruiter brought up comp expectations twice during interview process and asked if I was ok with 110-120 salary. Offer came in near the low end. Can I ask for higher (125) now that they’ve extended an offer? The role is a step down in terms of level so we’d discussed coming in closer to the top of the range. I also have a retention bonus at my current firm that I didn’t bring up as I wanted to wait until I received an offer.

I make $4000/M after taxes and max 401K and spend about $2400 for all fixed costs (rent, utilities, etc). With roughly $1600 left, and with a strong goal of saving as much as I can, what are some recommendations on how I should allocate my money better. I know this is vague but need some better financial planning.

Any female managers and above successfully switched from consulting to VC/PE in Europe? How was your interview experience etc? Their websites are so demotivating - only guys there.
Hi all! We’re doing quite a bit of hiring on our HR team at LEK Consulting - in particular Manager positions in LA and Boston and a specialist role in NYC. If anyone is interested, or knows someone that could be a good fit, feel free to dm me!
What’s the point of living in NYC for a junior consultant? Is it worth spending a huge chunk of salary to get decent housing?
Trying to cut back on bad habits and build good ones (daily workout routine) but only seems to be adding to the stress - at least in the short-term
Is it appropriate for junior consultants to connect on LinkedIn with senior clients from a project? I’m about to roll off my project and want to keep in touch with these clients given they work in my dream exit job. For context, the client is senior in title but relatively young (mid 30s) so not like retirement aged executive who may find my networking too forward. We had great interactions throughout but no explicit invite to connect on LinkedIn. TIA!
Are there any FAANG companies that hire full-time remote employees who would remain that way after the pandemic?

Hi! I’m starting my first job out of college next week. It is an industry job, pretty okay work life balance. This role is an experienced hire role and I’m very nervous because I recruited as a new grad. I would love any advice on how to adjust to the work, any skillsets I should learn, routines to create, or just anything I can do to prepare myself in the corporate world and “adulting”. Many thanks🙏
Got flagged about my expenses two weeks back about not getting approval for alt travel. Have a meeting to discuss something else with the partner in the next few days. Do I apologize or say anything?
Has anyone switched from a corporate to the firm that audits them for a non-audit role? Are audit partners required to inform the head of client about the ongoing interview before being able to give out an offer? How does the head of client usually handle that information? Any impact if you end up staying, taking the offer from this firm or a different company? Thanks in advance!
