I asked yesterday about Sidebench culture: don’t bother. They’ll ghost you interviewing anyways and not follow up 🙄
Hi, Consulting Moms! I need advice - I am leaving industry to return to consulting. I have offers from KPMG and Deloitte, and we are looking to start a family ASAP (we have been actively trying and I have a feeling it would be just my luck to start a new job and find out I’m pregnant). Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary. TY!
Hi All, I am from Performance Testing background and will joining Citi Group Account from TCS. Any idea on how the work culture and account is?
Point B fish, can you comment on the culture at the director and practice director levels?
Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
Kinda disturbing how intensely some folks ordering the iPhone X are being attacked online. Why does it matter if others want a phone? It seems to be another manifestation of the culture wars.
For people who are familiar with work culture in Tokyo, how much embezzlement takes place? I see a good number of Japanese people on Instagram buying Bentleys and such. I'm confused how they can do so while living in a high COL with, on average, lower salaries than in the US. With the scandal at Nissan and how many executives were found to be stealing money from the company, I wonder if this is some unspoken secret about doing business in Tokyo? Unless their comp curve is extremely steep.
Transferred to BAH from BCG to take a 20% bump and the opportunity to work in the federal space. Initial thoughts - disorganized orientation, decent culture. However, got placed on the bench 😑
How is the culture at Baker Tilly? I’ve seen a lot job postings there lately. Baker Tilly
Hi Folks, What's reviews of Publicis Sapient. Like work culture and if there is hiring firing culture I am from ETL background and knowledge of Hive and basic spark and I will be working on cloud(attended training only, consider near to no knowledge) and spark development. Will you suggest me to join there? Technology stack may be good for me but it will be new & challenging for me. I am scared to join there because of job security and work life balance can be dying ( I can stretch not daily?
To be great at the ad game, you need to be a connoisseur of culture. The thing is, the people who've been in this industry the longest, have no idea what's going on because they've been busy as fuck.
Guys, any idea on CDK Global? Do they pay well? What about WLB, work culture in Consulting (Bangalore location)? TIA
What’s better being at a small consulting firm working with people you like and solid culture but lower pay. Or going to a bigger firm (Accenture, Big Four, etc.) with more competitive higher pay?
When a recruiter or a hiring manager ask you, "why are you looking to leave your current role?" What are some responses people give? Frankly, I hate this question....for me its always about more money, but I feel compelled to have to give them a bs answer like a better corporate culture, etc. Any better ideas?
I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?
Interested in pursuing opps at Deloitte S&O and ACN Strategy. 2 yrs Big 4 strategy experience, came in from target undergrad. Do either firms do exp hiring at Consultant level? Appreciate any advice!
I want to exit to MBB but if that’s not a possibility what are the next best consulting firms? Looking for at least midsize firms (non-boutiques).
Off the clock, male client saw me looking at shoes on my phone & told me he felt bad for my husband. I quickly told him not to worry because I make plenty of my own money. What a dick.
My husband told me that he feels parenting our 2 yr old is a burden. He’s actually a great parent and loves our son but hates all the hard work that goes with it (wake ups / getting ready for daycare / sick days / tantrums). Neither of us wants to take a step back in our career to care more time for our son, and we don’t want the other person to either. We’re considering an Au pair, but I’m mourning the fact that we, and especially he, aren’t parents that love parenting. Anyone in the same boat?
Talent Acquisition teams: Are you all swamped and behind in your ATS processing right now? Asking as several colleagues and friends are actively submitting REFERRED applications for well-matched roles--but not hearing anything from HR. Is the need for talent real or is it overblown in the media? Or are a lot of TA people simply drowning at work or out on vacation right now? Tx for sharing if you are able! I'd like to give people some hope!

How difficult is obtaining an AWS cloud practitioner cert if you’re not particularly technical?
Should I open a 529 or a taxable brokerage account? Might go get an MBA down the line, but also would hopefully be with a company that would pay for it.
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
Is it okay to wear polos with logos of prior companies you worked for to work at the Big 4? Does it matter if you're on a client vs at the office?

Recently got promoted to M at PwC but looking to switch cause I am bored. Want to stay in consulting but move up to MBB- will they bring me at senior or manager? Is the manager equivalent a principal? Thanks!
Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
