Speaking for a mate, but he transitioned from PwC to Strategy& (part of the PwC network but way more elite) and he loves it way more than PwC consulting. He says the work is more interesting and works with better people. Hope this helps!

Considering a move, myself, to a small pharma focused consulting firm

I left a boutique consulting company because I felt under utilized. Joined a larger supposedly hip consultancy with local market model with great expectations and am finding myself let down by the experience - the client, work, teamwork and collaboration, technical content is not per what was promised and feels like I am back to my b4 days. I was a fool to fall for the kumbaya in consulting crap - I am best developing products with great teams. Industry looks down on me. What are my options?

Hey there! I work in a mid-size full service agency with a growing marketing team. We currently don't have a CD due to our size and current client portfolio, but that's a role I'd love to step into when the time is right and my management is on board with that. Any advice on how to prepare for that kind of role without changing agencies? Or anyone open to mentoring me? I'd love to learn from a CD or ACD to see what they're doing and what I can bring without leaving my team!

How did you get into your area of law? I have been licensed for 5 years and I still don't know where I ultimately want to be.

I think I’m going to contact a bunch of legal recruiters and tell them I’m looking to hire, set a bunch of calls just to take up their time, then reveal that I’m not really hiring after all.
