I came into Deloitte with zero consulting experience, an MBA and 2 years of management experience. Came in as a manager. It’s different and an adjustment but it’s doable if you’re ready to work

4 years of people management, right? How many other YOE? Were those 4 years of management before or after MBA? Probably manager, but ability to lead a consulting engagement is considered a more unique skill, so it depends. Manager case is easier if you've managed internal consulting projects or have needed industry or functional knowledge.

4 years of people management, yes, before MBA. With an additional 4 years of overall experience.

Probably the first Post-MBA position, (Consultant) unless you specialise in which case you could get higher

The post MBA position. Maybe with 1 year of tenure. Trust me. You don’t wanna come straight into a consulting firm as a a manager anyways.

It’s what I did. I’ve adjusted well. Definitely a learning curve and extra hours but if you’re a quick thinker, good with clients and faster learner it’s not too bad.

Senior associate

Depends on when the 4 YOE were. But if that's total career exp, then probably Senior.

4 years of people management prior to MBA, with an additional 4 years of general experience.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

MBA worth it you went to T1 undergrad and don't want to switch industries? Additional context: 4 YOE at T2/T3 firm. Think an MBA could be useful since I don't have business/finance background and at some point want to move in house for an investment firm. If I were to get an MBA, it'd be state school (T50). Concerned if I don't go back now, I'll never go back.

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!

I have a question, but to put it in context takes more characters than this allows--I'll explain more in a reply. Briefly, I struggled through seven miserable years of teaching until I finally got asked back by a school in 2019. My classroom management was disastrous; I knew it, but couldn't seem to fix it. Then I took a seminar, and got better. It really was that simple, though of course I'm still learning. So, can classroom management be taught? I believe so, but no one else seems to agree.
