I have 9 yoe and have a corp finance consulting role at a well known rx firm. I have been with the firm for a little over a year and am already bored. The work doesnt seem to be very challenging or interesting. Prior to this role i did corp dev and business dev in industry, i also did two years of pe straight out of college but it was outside the US. Is it normal for me to just feel that the work i am doing right now is way easier or mundane than what i used to do before?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. It has been 4 days since I haven't received any call for negotiation or offer letter. How long does it take to get that?
Today I got a call for a position at TechMahindra. The lady asked me to provide my passport number over mail, saying that TechM requires a passport available with the candidate. While I do understand the passport requirement, what I fail to understand is why do they need it over mail? Generally, after all rounds we upload passport in the official portals. Does anybody have the same experience with TechMahindra?
I received an offer from KPMG recently and filled out the office transfer form. Got a call with the news and a “congrats” email from the recruiter.

My firm is giving out surprise mid year bonuses to associates hitting the prorated annual bonus cutoff. I had a major injury for which I worked through treatments for about 3 months Jan-March. I didn’t take any time off, but I did set hard boundaries to make it to PT and medical appointments and not overwhelm myself. I’m off by 50+ hours to the target to receive bonus. Do I say something about being ineligible for the bonus or let it slide since it’s a big gap?
