MBB is desperately trying to hire people because attrition is so high. That being said, every fall, the entry of new hires might take a little time to get staffed.

Hey All, I kinda need some advice. So I started my current job back in December 2021, during the interview I was told they are building a whole new time, hiring internally and externally, which aas fine, I knew if they are building a new team the process and the workflow is not perfect. I didn’t do much in December, January started and I was slowly started to took over from one of the girl who moved to different department. My handover was short, we had two calls in the space of 2 months.

I work for a smallish group that has a disproportionate amount of older employees who are very resistant to change. By older I mean 10% of the workforce is 70+. Many more 60+. Were worried about a mass exodus if we push some of the changes we’re considering. Does anyone have any experience with buy-outs? Terms? My group’s thought is we could front run some turnover and then tackle some organizational changes.

New manager at a Big 4, but I’ve been a consulting manager for a while. An SC on the team said they “refuse” to report to me because I’m new. Our partner told me to get this SC in line and that I have his full support- but he apparently never told her I was coming to join the team to manage her😬. How do I set this SC straight without totally squashing her spirits? For context, she wants to take on more management role and be my “peer” but she’s a brand new SC...she’s not close to being ready.
