Interviewing for a Consultant role at ACN, was then contacted about a manager role and scheduled the initial interview. Recruiter reached out and said the manager interview would be canceled 😑 fml
Damn it!! Just when I think shit is almost managed I run into another cluster fuck the previous person in this position left. FML!!!!
Anyone interview with Google for a project manager role? If so, what was your experience? Glassdoor makes it difficult to weed thru reviews.
One of my dream agencies is hiring but I don’t know anyone there directly. Would I have better luck hitting up a recruiter I know has connections there or sending a blind email to a CD?
My friend has worked in a big 4 firm in India in a mid-senior role. He is now in Canada and has been working in an industry role. He wants to get back to consulting. Apparently big4’s view Indian...
I have a really bad habit of opening up Tinder in meetings or whenever I'm not engaged, afraid I'll get caught soon. what's the most embarrassing thing you've been caught looking at on your phone?
To the Indian fishes, what’s a good amount of money to live comfortably in Mumbai? Trying to fig out my exit strategy
Just got on the bench and I’m really considering trying to transfer to AFS. I have a puppy and my last role was remote so it was easy to be with him but I don’t want to get on a traveling project...
Does anyone use The League and/or have a referral code? Been on the waitlist for weeks now and still 50k ahead of me lol.
Thinking of moving back to India after 5 yrs in US. Any suggestions on Indian PE ops firm which might be hiring in these times. Background- Mckinsey, Non-target school, 8 yrs total work-ex! TIA
When they introduce your role on the project as 'he does everything, he is the glue that holds the project together' they really mean 'he does all the bitch work we don't want to do'
I'm a woman, dating a guy who used to work at the shop I'm at now -- same position. I have 5 yrs more exp, way more responsibility, and am kicking ass...but making substantially less. Do I raise this?
Fml anyone hiring in LA?
Hot Take: Trump is using the escalation of military force and BLM to distract the general public from an accelerated opening of the economy.
Talked to a mutual contact today about a role I’m applying to in Asia. (We are both white Americans, he is an expat in Asia.) He warns me, unprompted, to think carefully about the decision to relocate because “white men can date the local women but white women can’t date the local men, so there’s a much smaller dating pool.” What do you think ladies? Well-intentioned advice or racist sexist BS?
Honest question. Has anyone had their mind changed in one of the countless opening x closing the economy threads? All threads become a nasty fight, or a snark fest, or someone's called a Karen and then there's a nasty fight.
So my wife basically said she doesn’t want to have sex anymore. Don’t want to do anything about it. After couple kids, doesn’t feel it anymore. Also said it wasn’t anything I did and there’s no one else. I understand women’s body changes after child birth but can’t help thinking it’s gonna suck being in a sexless marriage. We’re still attractive and haven’t turned into couch potatoes…yet Happy Thanksgiving!
just bc I saw some uneducated BCG consultant go off on affirmative action today ...affirmative action/diversity hiring doesnt tip the scale in favor of minorities, it balances the scale

Unreal. Thought delta airlines was known for their customer service lol story is I used my company’s (Deloitte) promo with delta to sign up for silver medallion before my flight to avoid the baggage fee. I did it about 12 hours before the flight thinking that would be enough time for the system to process, but it ended up taking a full 24 hours
Staffed on a case in Shanghai starting this week - should I be worried about the corona virus?? NAMR here
Anybody here in equity research willing to chat?
Going off a post about MBAs, does anyone at Deloitte here has or in the process of competing a part-time MBA (Saturday class) at NYU while still traveling for work? I live a train ride away from NYC..
Anyone taken the pay day to switch between competitors (ACN, Deloitte, PwC, etc.)? If so, what kind of raise / bonus did you get? I'm a new consultant making ~$95k. Also interested in MBB figures.
Overheard an Indian Partner out of the FSO Data and Analytics - NYC practice brag about how he takes advantage of all the benefits without contributing to sales!...there goes my bonus.
Desperately waiting for my first bonus check. Hope it's not a disappointment cuz let's be honest, I've spent it already.
Do PhDs (not SMEs) have an advantage in consulting? From what I can see, they start late in their career(late 20s or early 30), and most likely what they studied didn’t have much to do with their jobs.
