Interviewing for a generalist BA role at McKinsey. Have 2 YOE at another consulting firm. Does McKinsey adjust comp and promotion timeline to EM for experienced BA’s?
I have an opportunity to move from strategy to creative, if someone out here has any experience with this I would love to talk with you! Context - I’ve been an illustrator freelance on the side for about 10 years, our CD found my work, gave me a chance to work on illustrations for a campaign, and he (and the client) loved it. He wants to help train me and turn my role into a creative one! Super excited about it but also really intimidated by the idea 😬
Hi, looking for a job in HR to project management or in an HRBP role. Experience is 1.6 years. An MBA in HR, working in a mid level IT company in India. Remote, hybrid will work. My skills are in recruitment analytics and project management among other things. Thank you!
I guess I know I'm really showing when my client says "so what's new with you....you look different" 😂
How much do you value pay vs. experience? Been with the firm for a few years now and severely underpaid, but working on interesting projects and good people. Can probably get a 50% raise if I jump.
Anyone that’s jumped from the D to MBB, I am curious how different the work is? I love my team, project city, but I’m not interested in the project. How much better is the work at MBB at analyst lvl?
I love my job at EY but the salary sucks. I have barely seen a 100 dollar raise monthly past three and half years. My salary started out at 62 and is barely there at 74 now. How do we negotiate here
I have to present to a client via video chat today. Guess I need to actually put on makeup and get dressed ...maybe just the top half.
What would be a good salary for a project manager (3+y exp) in agency environment in NYC?

There’s no better feeling than getting into a top 2 business school after being denied a promotion + being discriminated against in a toxic work environment (sorry for the humblebrag, just so excited to leave my job)
Congrats to all the folks that got promoted at PwC! And thank you fishbowl - I wouldn’t have known about PwC promotion time without you.
How should I start a conversation with my boss about a promotion? What things should I bring up as evidence that I'm not only consistently hitting - but surpassing - my performance goals and targets?
Should be getting a raise by the end of this month, I am definitely being underpaid, do I bring this up before or after I find out how much my raise is?
Accenture strategy: How is ADP project experience viewed when decisions are made regarding career progression, bonus, etc.?
Have you ever run into a situation where you asked for more money (either a raise or when negotiating an offer) and you got it and regretted it? What are the strings attached to more $?
I’ve recently accepted an ACI offer from Bain in a main office. What is everyone’s opinion on the outlook of Bain 5/10/20 years out? I occasionally hear remarks BCG and McKinsey are widening the gap and this has me questioning potentially re-recruiting. For context, I love Bain and the culture, but this concern paired with slower promotion is a little unsettling.
I'm hitting my personal lowest. I'm taking vacation next week to just "be at home" and don't answer emails. I am on local project but pretty burned out so really all I want to do is anything but work.
Absolutely miserable on a staff aug project with a small team and not enough work to go around. End of current extension in a couple of months. How can I tactfully request a different assignment?
Question! My client wants me to pull together an analysis on a competitor. I am thinking I might book a call with the competitors sales team and pose as a consultant working with a confidential client who wants their product in order to get more insights about how they operate. I know this isn’t illegal and I am not signing a NDA - is there a reason i shouldn’t do this?
Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?
Been interviewing with Delloite for a role in Risk and Financial Advisory - cyber risk infrastructure team, want to know if this a good area and what is work life balance ? Would be good to know what I am potentially getting myself into. Deloitte
Was unsuccessful recruiting for top consulting firms during my MBA. I need that money! What is the best approach to landing an interview post MBA? Referral?
Real talk. Why doesn't Uber have a loyalty/points program? (Besides VIP, which is a joke.) I created a new budget category just to delineate Uber from other travel. Obscene how much I spend.
What's a good billable hour total for 2020? Given covid conditions (we faced slump in work about 2 months) and work from home productivity.
Indians from India, why do you get all group-y and like you know better than others just because you all have the same culture from India? Just because we don't get all your inside jokes, it doesn't mean we are stupid.
I’ve got an offer for a job I think is going to be much more interesting than my current role and significant pay bump. Downside is it’s permanent WFH and I think part of why I’ve got the urge to leave DT is the lack of people connection right now. Worth it?
Why might an interviewer reach out before the interview to prep? First time this has happened to me and confused about what to expect.

After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
So, again my client went with the banner and website design ideas from from their print-based (and cheaper) agency. Now I get to make their garbage. Sometimes I wonder why we bother. #designrant

Are you supposed to save up for an MBA or do most people finance it with loans? I have loans from UG too.
So, work from home, mindless spreadsheet work, no more meetings today. Acceptable to have a beer or two while I slog through?
