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.

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”.

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.
