Anyone exited to an integration role in industry? How do you like it? The company I'm talking to is a F500 serial acquirer looking to add some people with integration experience under their corp dev team. Doesn't seem like a PMO role on the surface but have a feeling it will be. Any thoughts?

Yes. Pros: great exposure to exec, you will learn about the business it’s strategy and operations inside out and know it better than most, you will be less busy than as a consultant, you can make decisions and see them through to execution Cons: if you are a one man band, you will basically act an advisor, if you are part of an integration team you may fall into PM type role and get bored quickly, once you have done 2-3 integrations you will be very bored Advice: clarify exactly what the role is, PMing each integration vs managing the portfolio and setting strategy and monitoring success/issues etc. Understand what the internal exit opportunities are for the role.

I would seek out advice from people you trust in industry, very few people in Deloitte have an accurate perspective on this question

I did this, but not to F500 so experience may differ. Currently leading the integration team for a PE portfolio company. Best decision I ever made. DM if interested in chatting about it, happy to share my experience.

Yep I did. Definitely a different feel than PMI work in consulting (way less slides, thank god) but a lot more stakeholdering. WLB is great (even the Exec team doesn’t really answer email much after 8pm) and tons of visibility with Execs. Really happy with the decision I made. Happy to chat pros and cons

My husband and I have been wanting to start “trying” for a baby for a while now. However, I’m unhappy in my current role and would like to make a jump somewhere else. I have a few early interviews lined up but it’s still early days and no telling where they’ll go. Is it silly to put off trying until I find a new job? On the contrary, is it problematic if I accept a new role down the line while a few months pregnant? Either route feels like a compromise. Appreciate any input from mamas out there.

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere?

I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
