I interviewed at an agency a year ago but didn’t get the job. I submitted a cover letter with a sort of unique intro they have a new opening. Should I use the same cover letter into or change it?
I’ve been out of consulting for 2 years. I went to company A (was a series E startup but has since went public). I left company A for company B about 3 month ago. I had a job I liked and it was relatively easy at company A but I felt like it wasn’t pushing me at all so I left. I started at company B (a series C startup) a couple of months ago and haven’t had a great time. I’m struggling and don’t really enjoy my team. My old boss at Company A just left and the company posted a job opening (cont)

I just got an offer for a part time internship. Combines both my current job skills (I don’t like my current job) and my passion. I want to take this and quit my current position, and it feels like a great transition position, but am a bit nervous to do so. However, I’ve been getting interviews recently and have enough savings for a few months if need be. Any advice or thoughts appreciated! 🙏
Help: The 2 interviews in this round are a week apart, I just had the 2nd interview and realized I didn’t send a thank you note to the 1st interviewer… is it better to only send to 2nd interviewer or send a one-week late thank you note to 1st interviewer?

I didn’t get an answer on career pivot but would any program managers know someone who can conduct a mock interview? The person who did my resume is charging $170 and I didn’t know if I should go that route or find someone in the field. (Should you pay for a mock?) TIA.
Great I had a panic attack during an interview. At least it was over the phone and I could fake a cough to give me time to recover. Wtf universe.
Is it normal for teams to lose it on each other on a regular basis? I’m fairly new to the B4 and never experienced it at former firms. It starts at the top and it’s starting to take a toll on my performance. Not sure if I need to suck it up and deal with it or start thinking about changing teams. TIA
W+K is in hot water in Brazil — another instance of ads going wrong because of little empowered-to-speak-up diversity at the table at any stage of the concepting, pitching, greenlighting, production, post-production, finishing, final approval and distribution? Or just a fluke? https://www.campaignlive.com/article/wieden-+-kennedy-brazil-creative-leadership-departs-controversial-work/1727220
Less than a year of valuation experience but got offered valuation role in a REIT firm with 38% increase (HCOL to higher HCOL (SF)). I’m worry about being too focused in REIT/ operations real estate niche area that exit opportunities might be difficult. Thoughts?

I’ve recently accepted an ACI offer from Bain in a main office. What is everyone’s opinion on the outlook of Bain 5/10/20 years out? I occasionally hear remarks BCG and McKinsey are widening the gap and this has me questioning potentially re-recruiting. For context, I love Bain and the culture, but this concern paired with slower promotion is a little unsettling.
Anyone here work BlackRock ? How have you liked it? Are y’all remote? What are the benefits like? What are average raises and bonuses like?
Sometimes I feel like my boss takes "coaching" a little too far. He's all about "breaking me down" in order to "build me up". He's told me things like my voice is too boring when I present, or that I didn't do enough in my last role, suggesting that I wouldn't be in his team if it weren't for him in team meetings. Yesterday he asked me to call someone (on a non-urgent topic) who was on DND, and when I told them I'd call them later, he mimicked me. Am I being too sensitive?

For those of you who have successfully started your own agencies — how did you start? As in, how’d you get your first RFP from a client?
I just got laid off from a strategy consulting boutique in the UK that primarily works with PE funds doing CDD/VDD. It goes without saying that the market is terrible. I suspect no strategy firms are hiring and it will need to be an in-house move or if I could stretch it PE/VC. What are people’s thoughts and does anyone have any advice?
Show of hands; who has been laid off because your agency lost a big client? Also, when you interviewed for your next job did you feel comfortable saying that? And do other agencies understand?

Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.
