Unexpectedly leaving consulting for industry. Background isn’t in apparel but got an offer to join a large international apparel company as a product director and decided to make the jump. Current TC is $183k with annual bonus between 10-20%. New TC will be $200k, $50k signing, annual bonus of 15-40%, and progression path to VP. Will also be managing teams around the world, so opportunity to travel internationally, which is a perk in my book.
Is Grant Thornton still making people travel for advisory? Specifically risk advisory for NYM area. Was wondering if covid changed things so there would be no more traveling
16k away from platinum on delta. smaller hub but unsure whether will fly delta for next project. on bench until idk when. worth trying to take massive mileage run?
Any recommendations for mentoring opportunities? Bonus points if it specifically serves female and diverse students or upcoming talent.
Uber driver says I most be a very important person, just because I travel to work every week. And all I have to say is God bless his soul.
Do I get lounge access if I fly business class international? Even if I have no status with for example, Delta.
On the delta app, only saw the option to request upgrade for Delta Comfort. I've been confirmed for this upgrade, but what about requesting 1st class upgrade? Last time I flew delta it had that option
Had to cancel my travel plan because of H1B application. Already booked tix to fly out of the country and feel so stupid now
I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
Getting married soon. Want to bring up the mgmt of finances conversation. We both are in the high income bracket in a HCOL city. But had different starting points with me having been in higher paying job for longer, which means we might have different current savings. Not that this matters much as we both are not dingy about who pays for what day to day. But curious to know what are the best practices in terms of: 1. Things to discuss before wedding on finances 2. How to split cost of livingetc
Thinking of going to Cancun for Jan. Any recommendations on hotels that offer best inclusive packages? I’m using chase UR points
Any recommendations for a periodontist in NYC (or surrounding areas) that take Delta Dental PPO?
In an alternate universe, we’d all be at the airport lounge drinking our weekly stress away while eagerly waiting to go home. Life is good. Unless you’re flying United - you’re minutes away from being told your flight is delayed because there is one cloud in the sky.
Best SPG and Marriott in Cincinnati?
Uber driver dropped me off at the wrong terminal, so now I have to go through the peasant security line with all the Spirit and Frontier people. Don't they know that I'm a Delta medallion member???
When do you tell your ECD that the great idea they’re raving about from a team has been done (in a super bowl spot, so they should know) I feel like it’s bad form to send a link. Do I just wait til someone inevitably points it out?
People that went from the likes of ACN and Deloitte to MBB, how was the transition and what differences did you find in culture, work-life balance, and actual work?

Need some advice! I'm a recent PhD grad (30 yo) in STEM, and just got some offers from different companies. Particularly, two of them are interesting to me. 1) from a Energy Market Company in Pennsylvania as an Operations Research Scientist, 95k + 15% bonus + very good benefits and generous PTO. It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?
How do you talk about your work in consulting in job interviews? Would love some pointers.
Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
Ladies at Accenture - what is it like working as a woman / opps for advancement? I see a lot of lip service for inclusion and diversity and I want to know what is real versus PR. I’m considering a move from Deloitte.
A client has a very-difficult-to-pronounce name which is a tongue twister for me. Don’t intend to butcher the name, but just can’t say it right. Personally, if someone from another culture said my name a bit differently, I just wouldn’t mind. This client is touchy about it. How do you handle this?
Just got C1 Manager promo and bumped to 160k TC. Interviewing with PWC and others and have gotten 180k base and TC at $200+. Should I stay here and keep climbing for Senior Mgr or jump ship for extra $40k?
I have a principal PM offer at a Series C startup for $260k total comp + $150k in stock over 4 years and start in 8 weeks. Part of me want to stop interviewing (I had 4 offers) but part thinks I should continue to see if I get a higher offer. How many of you continue to interview even after you accept?
