At what stage of your career

Industry. Start up. Failed. Consulting!

Started in industry, straightforward transition

Looking forward the same advice. Kind of hard starting from scratch but I have found networking to be a great start!

I got a $8,000 raise for year end and promotion, and no bonus. I just got written offer from other big 4 for 40k more then I am making at Deloitte.


About to leave my firm and consulting for an industry, totally remote role. Just surprised at how sad I am feeling at this point. Any of you other mama’s make a similar move?

Let's say you get fired for sexual harrassment (obviously the allegation is disputed). How do you come back from that and go out and get another job?


How much experience do you need to be seriously considered for jobs that ask for “5 years” experience? I have 1.5 years of Big 4 experience. Do you typically include the 2-3 years of college (basic bookkeeping) level accounting jobs / internships as experience as well? (Including college part time accounting jobs gets me closer to 4-5 years experience - just not sure if that’s generally viewed as “valid” experience)


What do PE associate first-round interviews typically look like?


What is the salary range for Deloitte SM in other firms? Do you consider strong delivery and team management bigger strengths? Does h2b visa matter in that case?

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.

Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?


Hi all I’m meeting my supervisor/coworkers at a happy hour for the first time later this week after starting my first job post college completely virtual. I’m feeling pretty nervous about it since social situations/meeting new people were always hard for me even before COVID. Does anyone have any advice to help with this?


My grandparents never make an effort to ask about my life or how things are going. I’ve gotten a promotion, switched roles, etc and they’ve never asked about any new and exciting life events. When I finally do visit them all they can do is comment on my weight or how I look - basically anything they can nitpick about my appearance, and then guilt me for not visiting them more. Am I being dramatic by not wanting to interact with them anymore? Do they get a pass to be rude because they’re old?


Generally, should consultants wait to be promoted to senior consultants before pursuing an exit? What is the trade off of exiting before SC?

Can anyone speak to culture and lifestyle in the VC/EM groups at WSGR and Perkins Coie? Considering a lateral move as a junior. Very unhappy at my firm but I do have it good hours-wise by biglaw standards doing lender-side finance.. nervous about going to a total sweatshop.
