In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.
Interviewing at EY and would like to gather info regarding current senior manager salaries, specifically in high COL area, for audit. Please also provide years of experience in the role. Many thanks in advance!
Having an interview with PwC DDV (Experienced hiring for senior associate). I did my research and talked to a few folks. Somehow they came in as MBAs so they had no ideas about the experienced hiring process and interview details. Anyone has any insights? Thanks a lot!
Hello Fishes, I have been offered Assistant Director role in EY GDS. What are the roles and responsibilities and benefits associated with this role and how different is it from senior consulant profile in IT? Skill- SAP YOE- 12 years
Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.

Needed to change my flight from tomorrow morning to today. Asked for standby, got denied because there were "seats available for sale." Charge me $300. Get on flight to find dozens of empty seats...
On a flight (yes, but not for work) and a morbidly obese person next to me is all up in my space - there is no way for this person not to touch me. If people cannot fit into standard seat sizes (cont)

What fitness trackers do you use? Work from home and I've gotten really sedentary. Think having a reminder to get my ass up and move around will help.
I don’t want to burn my bridges, but my dream agency contacted me after being at my new job for a month! I’m all for sticking it out, but this other opportunity allows for more creativity, closer to home, and most likely better pay. Anybody ever been in this position, and what did you do?
I started as a life agent with insurance license and series 6. Looking at getting my 7 and 66 to become more of a true advisor and less of a salesperson. Could really use a seasoned mentor on (cont'd)

Friday will be my first time interviewing someone for a job that’s not an intern. It’s going to be weird being the other side of the table. Suggestions on questions to ask?
Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!
Anyone exited to Chick-fil-A Corp? Currently interviewing and appreciate any insights. Thanks!
Just got a new job and feeling like the “diversity hire.” Everyone else is white or Indian and in the town halls they keep talking about upping Diversity and Inclusion targets to include more Female and Black/Latino individuals.
Anyone a black inclusion network lead for D&I?
Advise on handling rates negotiations with BIPOC and non-male creators? I always want to accept first bid and get uncomfortable when my bosses push to undercut rates (especially now when money is tight), because there is a whole history of BIPOC and non-male people getting paid less. I’ve tried to push back but struggle to articulate this to them. (For the record, I’m POC female and my bosses are white males, and race/gender convos are already very difficult with them.)
Those of you who are waiting or opposed to the COVID vaccine - do you feel obligated to divulge your true vaccine status to restaurants, employers, etc.?
Feeling hopeless today professionally. I’ve tried to trooper on throughout this pandemic but today it all caught up to me. Exhausted, mentally drained and just so negative. Feel like all I do is work since covid. Have tried to set boundaries but it’s impossible when people can reach out on my cell. Get taken advantage of regularly for trying to do what right thing to support my teams. I like my job but I don’t know that I can keep this pace and that adds stress too
Anyone use Liberty Travel and have a good experience? I just received a sample 13 day itinerary in France and it's $11,599 a person. (I'm going on my honeymoon) I want to know if they are trustworthy.
