Hello, I am considering joining Deloitte, . I wanted to join as a manager, however, offer might come as a SC. What would be the difference in salary % wise ? would it be worth it to go as a SC instead of Mgr? Do I even have the option to negotiate or to say why I think I should be a manager and not a SC? Have you seen something like this at a big 4? How about WLB? Thanks

Is it easier to take vacation in transactional vs lit? I’m in lit and because our cases can take years, we don’t get coverage for vacations beyond our case team and we’re expected to wait for a lull to take time off. But just when one case gets quiet, another heats up and I can never find a time when all my cases are quiet. I’m wondering if this is different in corporate since it’s easier to onboard people for coverage. Specifically interested in specialist groups but any answers are welcome!

How likely is it to internally transfer between Big 4 advisory practices that have zero overlap in transferrable skills?

S2 about to be a S3 in a high COL city making 84k in FDD (top 10 firm) without CPA. Raises are being communicated this week... is it reasonable to counter offer if my raise is not where I want it to be and how could I approach this topic respectfully? I'm really hoping to be in the 94k+ range especially since I've been a key player in my groups biggest client for the last year.

US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting

Cognizant consulting vs Capgemini, similar roles and comp. Which one has better exit opportunities?
My effective utilization since 10/1 is 158.3%. If my counselor asks me why I didn’t achieve my lead goals this cycle I’m gonna flip a table.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Opinions wanted-Does randomly calling on students using a random generator create an emotionally safe classroom? I had a very quiet class last year where no one wanted to answer (Precalc) and I called on the students randomly and that caused anxiety among some students. I want it to be safe to answer, but of course I don’t know the students previous classroom experiences with other teachers. What are your best practices?
Any Accenture Interactive account folks on what makes a successful Account Lead at AI. I've been approached for a "Digital Transformation Executive" role, but my knowledge of digital transformation/CX/BX is cursory at best. I crashed and burned pretty hard at Publicis Sapient (now back industry-side) and am wary of going back into the digital transformation space. However, the AI folks insist my general business background, MBA and brand strategy experience will translate to success.
