Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂
Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?
Is it OK to go to certain events while on parental leave? I am not doing casework but I also don’t want to miss out on a key training that is rarely offered, for example. Or annual practice meetings
Worth taking a >50% paycut for a well-known nonprofit consulting / foundation role? I have high ambition but also want to do good, impactful work - very conflicted. Thoughts?
My flight left on time! Joy! Haha just kidding we have to land because we forgot to empty the lavatories. American Airlines why do you hate us all so much?
Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)
So I have applied for 21 jobs in the last 3 weeks and I have had just 1 recruiter reach out and no interviews yet. Most of them are for jobs I feel I am a strong fit for. Is it a clear indicator that my resume is not attractive? Or is this level of striking out expected?
How long can you do the weekly travel before you need a break? I just hit 20 weeks including lots of Fridays at the client and weekend trips and wondering if it’s unreasonable to ask for a remote week
Has anyone leveraged an offer at another firm to get a raise at their current firm? If so, were you successful and were there any long term impacts within the current firm because they think you tried to bail? (Getting recruited by other firms for higher TC but enjoy current firm’s project types more.)
Why do previous generations feel the need to belittle the hard work of younger people? My parents always insist they used to put in as many hours as I do when they were my age, but I know it’s not true because I was actually old enough to remember it! (They could afford having a kid. I can’t)
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM
Currently at Deloitte with 4.5 YOE primarily on tech implementation projects. PM seems to be at top of the exit opp list but curious to hear what current PMs with similar background also explored (or wish they got into)?
Wondering if any of you typically get a holiday gift for the Exec you support, and if you do, what do you typically gift them?
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
Anyone in strategy/account consider an MBA? Would it be worth 2 years if I came back to advertising after 🤔
