I wonder what would happen if advertising creatives - the ones with jobs and the ones looking - did the same thing to recruiters and headhunters that we screenwriters and TV writers did to agents...
Are there any firms trying to up their game and compete with the Deloitte Human Capital behemoth? EY, KPMG, and PWC’s HC offerings just seem pathetic. I have heard PWC is trying something new.

I flew home from a client today and my delta flight’s brakes locked up shortly after landing, causing us to sit on the plane for over an hour before they deplaned us. Anyone have similar experience...
How strange subconscious mind can work. Had a really traumatic break up recently that caused me to take leave of absence from work. Ive been back to work and also been trying out online dating..
I’m a cci edit coder. I currently have the RHIA registered health information administrator. I been thinking of studying for CCS certified coding specialist exam. But none of the jobs I’m interested in require CCS. They want someone that is familiar with data using excel tableau etc I know these things but I have not worked in a role. I guess my question is should I past this CCS exam then focus on trying to get experience as a data analysts or forget about the CCS?

I just had a convo with a coworker (not in same team and in totally different department but we know each other well) where she essentially broke down while telling me how she is struggling at work and managing her kids (2 under 5). Her department head (same level as me and three levels above her) keeps comparing her choices and boundaries. Example: She requested for more flexible hours, log off after 4 PM etc, and her department head keeps comparing how she managed 20 y ago with same age kids

Anyone have a child in Avenues NYC? Thoughts? Worried about English Literacy given they split time with second language immersion. My child is already fluent in Spanish so that is less of a gain.
Any partners transfer from Big4 or Accenture to MBB and live to tell the tale? Did you like the change? Did you fit with the culture?
I am being recruited by McKinsey. I am just starting the process so who knows what will happen. In the summer I had an offer from EY, which was good, but I actually felt like my role at ACN was just too good to leave. However Mck seems to focus on really interesting problems to solve. My questions to other partners out there - if you left another firm to go to Mck, why? If you considered an offer but decided to stay where you are, why? Don’t want to waste people’s time if I’m better off at ACN
Folks - who do you use for your financial planning and wealth management advisory? Yourself or a form? Anyone you recommend?
If you had financial sponsorship from the firm and acceptance into 2 of the top 5 schools would you do an emba (FYI there would be no relief on sales targets / practice p&ls or Billability )?
Joining ZS … what are few things I need to keep in mind to become successful and flourish in the firm? Would like to hear from partners who are direct admits and have been successful at ZS
Partners - how does your firm incentivize Partners to collaborate and bring the best of your firm's thinking to each account without getting into a turf war?
Why would a Partner at your firm reach out more broadly and pull in more (v. fewer)? At my current firm, I am seeing some information / relationship hoarding. I recognize this is common across the board but I am curious how your firm is tackling this institutionally.
Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.
Im a fourth year partner. The clients are good, workload is manageable, have a great team and a great boss. But I'm just not motivated to go and kill it anymore. It just feels more of the same thing. Also, I keep having a feeling that I could be doing a lot more if I were in a startup or in a different corporate role. The only reason that stops me from doing any of this is that money here is good and I worked really hard to get here. Any advice?
For partners, can you offer me some benchmarks out there for % base vs bonus and total cash comp on upper end?
Any folks have interesting alternate investments that do well and you would care to share? (e.g. franchises, non-financial market investments)
I am curious about Protiviti. Any partners move from Big 4, IBM or ACN? I have heard it’s very collaborative. What about their pipeline and clients?
So here's a random one. I'm considering the Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 (not the larger Fold). Anybody already make that leap? If so, what do you think so far? I'm nervous about the battery life, which is reported to be quite limited.
FYI, all: McKinsey works for oil companies. I know no other firms ever would do such a thing, so wanted to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening.
Are you folks able to keep up with reading books (any genre)? If yes, how long on average does it take you to complete one?
Any suggestions on how to get an adjunct teaching role at a university. Don't need money or prestige. I enjoy teaching and gives me something to do when I retire in ~10 yrs. Many colleagues who do this are big alumni donors. My Alma mater is too far away to be practical option. I'm an expert in a very in demand field - get quoted in articles all the time but have not been able to connect with anyone in academia.
I'm an Accenture Managing Director considering a move to Deloitte. I've got 15 - 20 yrs possibly left in my career. Any thoughts on Managing Director vs Principal?
I’m interested to hear from anyone who has stepped away from being a Partner. I am finding that I simply cannot balance work and personal life and be a good “partner” in both aspects. We’re you able to find a new career which enabled you to fulfil your ambitions whilst being a good husband/wife/parent?
Joining Accenture as a lateral MD next month. Any inputs on how to build network and connect with fellow MDs, especially in a remote setup? Are people open to collaborate with “outsiders” at a senior level, or should I expect friction with people protecting their turf and sticking to their own connections? How is the work culture like at MD level? For context, I will join strat and consulting.

Company is great. With great work-life balance, management and culture. Pay can be considered a little below than what I expect but proportionate to the demands of the work and its work hours. The management cares about the growth of the employees and acknowledges their role in the company.
I've heard mostly good things! No personal experience, but they seem like a safe bet.
