Hi All, I need some suggestions. I am currently working in a Big 4 post my MBA from tier 2 IIM college as consultant but the work is pure PMO work which I am doing right now. I am completely confused about my career track and have no idea whether the PMO work will help me or not in long run. Not sure about the exit opportunities from this role? And what if I keep doing this pmo work, where will I land up? I wish to transit into a product manager or may be program manager role.
Rolled off a horrible project due to budget constraints, one week on the bench, and just sold a dream role for myself starting Monday. It's been a good week 😀
I have an interview scheduled for this Friday but I’m feeling very unprepared. I need more time to think through my professional experiences and how that translates to the role in question. How does it look if I move the interview to next Friday? Would that raise eyebrows?
Applied for a position. Adding and requesting intro calls with anyone at that company on LinkedIn. Also reached out to firm/school alumni and recruiters at that company. Anything else I can do?
Is acquiring a Tax LLM pointless if you already have a JD and working in Big 4 Tax already?
My manager just offered me “coaching advice” and called me “aggressive”. He was referring to feedback I gave on a call w new management, who are considering shifting our jobs to a new role but not increasing our pay. The new role is the same as a role 2 levels higher. 5 folks on my team slacked me to thank me for saying what I said. I’m shocked it took until 33 to get this feedback. Although I’m seething, I’m taking my power back and reframing it as “I spoke like a man in a meeting”.
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
A few years ago I landed an interview at W+K to for their lead social role. I didn’t get it. The guy who did was just promoted to…ECD of W+K in Portland. I work at a third-rate digital agency reporting to our head of strategy in a big network making boring decks for boring clients.
Looking to exit to a tech company - has anyone ever approached a DEI person at the company you are applying to on LinkedIn? Is this something worth pursuing or should I just apply directly?

Has anyone left for a local firm and bounced back to top 10/big 4 or top 10? I've been interested in working at a local firm for some time, have an opportunity, but want the opportunity to get back to something larger if I learn I hate it.

Have an opportunity to be a loaned staff for a company I find really interesting for 2 years. Should I be cautious of this? Seems like a good opportunity but I’d likely miss out on the typical career progression of a big 4 firm

Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
I'm actually the client. Need to hire a consultancy for a project (5ppl). Proposals were horrible. KPMG didn't have the staffing. PWC we cannot take since they are the auditor (somehow we didn't ask EY). Now I am stuck with Deloitte or a boutique. Thoughts? Senior management cannot decide. My team cannot decide. This has been going on for months. Thoughts?
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
I’m applying this year for MBA (Fall 2021 start), but really want to shoot my shot for MBB before that, BCG specifically, because I can’t deal with all the EY BS anymore. Say I was actually able to get an offer, would I be blacklisted from BCG if I left for an MBA 6 months after being hired?
Hi folks - im a little confused and would appreciate some confirmation. My CRS score is 438 and applying through Federal Skilled Worker Express Entry. I’m positive im in the pool, but can someone confirm if this score has been cleared in any cut off in the past few months? I’m confident i dont have an ITA for Provincial or Canadian Exp class
Just wrapped up a 10 day vacation - didn’t go too overboard on food and stayed pretty active but drank almost every day (not normal for me). Could this be why I’m so bloated and feeling large?
I left tcs,its already 35 days,still my tcs almuni portal is not working.Its showing my salary has been suspended. I told them I will not work in tcs,as per policy.I will do what ever I need to do. Can any one share me the Global HR mail ID for BPS?
Given the hot job market, do ya’ll desi fish get inundated with messages from recruiters on LinkedIn? Somehow I have not had even one reach out outside of some boutique firms. Wondering if we are being ignored because of the whole visa thing.
Been here several years. Only just clicked to me how predatory Big 4 are. Business model is to use cheap, underpaid labor from college grads who can't go elsewhere or pay debts. Churn em and burn em.
General question: If you get laid off from a job, and have ~6 month’s of expenses saved, would you simply focus on getting a new job, or getting a new job that pays more? Should you ever take a pay cut, especially in times like these?
Has anyone in partner ranks been able to take an actual, fully disconnected vacation of at least a full work week in the last 18 months? Genuinely curious.
Which offer should I take both in same city EY: 190 Manager with the alright bonus OW: 175 Senior consultant, target bonus 25% but almost always much higher

So with all the chat on here about how easy it is to get hired, are you as a hiring manager putting more emphasis into screening and challenging interviewees than before as a response? I ask because I successfully went through an interview process and have no idea how a candidate who wasn’t well versed in the cases, practice, and even consulting exp would be able to pass.
