Corp Dev is a very real option that can still pay well. Have had many friends do that. Really it's whatever you want. I've also had friends be product managers at tech startups but you just take a big pay cut.


Anything you want. The world is yours Mr. Or Ms. GS IBD!!

Got an offer w Deloitte in juman capital...not lateral—-I’d be starting a position lower and paying lower. What can I do to ask them for either a higher position or higher pay?

Has Anyone seen immigration nation on Netflix?? 🤯🤯 The first thing I noticed was the lack of many women on the team. I know, I know lol and also how ignorant people are by opening doors and letting them in. I was so ignorant about these processes. It was a learning opportunity for me. Any thoughts? Can you all watch and discuss with me friends ? You all know you are my WFH friends right?


Got promoted to manager this year and making 152k. Got an offer from BCG Platinion but they're bringing me as a Senior Consultant for 160K.

I tried other exit ops at Amazon, FB, MSFT, Walmart, Mastercard, etc but they never followed through past the initial interview or call with the recruiter.

Would the move to BCG be a good idea? I'm stuck at EY doing implementation work I'm not enjoying and I'd be doing more IT strategy and management at BCG which I enjoy more.

Hey All! Where is the best place to post a Digital Marketing Job? I’m hiring a strategist. Are there any specific websites you recommend beyond Monster, Indeed, Etc.

I want to check if in case I want to apply for a role change within Deloitte, do I have to inform my manager? If not, then can someone tell me the procedure? If yes, does anyone has openings in fin advisory that they know of? ☺️

Anyone at Northrop willing to give me a referral? Please and thank you.


I have a referral but for some reason when I go to the referrals page it says that the email I’m using is not associated to the referral, even though it is the exact same email address. I just applied to a role and the referral did not carry through, I think. What can I do to resolve this? I’ve gotten a referral from the same person previously, and it worked fine the last time.


“Strategist” seems like a rare title to see when you go in house. Are there similar roles with different titles - I could be wrong, but I don’t think it’s an agency exclusive role.

Does having a gap in jobs (COVID-related layoff) make it impossible to get an in-house position?


I have 9 YOE, 7 of which is in Cybersecurity (government) and an MBA. End goal is a tech exit likely PgM Mgmt but I have recently done some freelance w/ B4 and now have a B4 offer on the table.

For those of you who exited to tech or planned to. Do you think there's some value in going to Consulting for a few years to boost comp or would you rec just targeting tech off the bat?

Had an employee request a standing desk due to back problems. went through the ADA process & the employee obtained a doctor's note to support their request.

Thoughts? Also, what do you think about having certifications from non-traditional doctors?
