Offer Evaluation: 1. Stay: wait for a few months to get a title raise to AD (with no 💸) 2. Leave: take a Director offer on the client side (with 60k more 💸), but it’s not your dream job/Industry
My dad is in his 80s and just had a stroke. He is in the hospital getting better one day and worse the next. My job has been really understanding and are giving me time off, but I recently started there and don’t want to feel like I’m taking too much time off. Between my brother and I, we take turns going to the hospital, but he seems to be taking less responsibilities knowing that I am here to talk to doctors and be there for dad. I also have my own family and my husband is a little frustrated
I have ptsd from a terrible accident where two people died. I nearly died myself. Every time one of you says you got ptsd from a difficult project or bad client, I want to scream.
Market variances on salary/billing are so dumb. The same work is being done in the Midwest, South, etc. as NYC. Why should the client pay more because of where the lawyer chooses to live?
Director small client to VP flagship client, internal move after less than a year. Going from leading a team of 4 to one of 20. What’s a reasonable ask as a percentage salary bump?

Market Prediction: Holiday Cards are going to be bought and sent in droves this Holiday Season. Photograph services like Shutterfly, etc. are going to see surges of families uploading photos to cards. It’s going to be a USPS Christmas 🎄
I was told by my MD earlier that I need to improve my executive presence... First ever implementation/hands on keyboard project after 2 years of stratrgy work @ acn. How do these projects even work?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Has anyone ever quit to just take some time off? I’m financially stable and thinking seriously about doing it. I feel like my current gig is killing me and I can’t escape.
Australian news program used client’s copyrighted video without permission/license in production. News program claims it falls under fair use as they “critiqued” the video. Video was not newsworthy. It was fail video (America’s funniest home videos type) used for laughs, and to fill the hour with content. Any recommendations for client?
Hi Rachel! Holiday question - How should I balance my personal “wants” vs. family obligations during the holidays? I am exhausted, want to stay home and rest, do my hobbies, while SO wants to fly to the Midwest to spend time with his large extended family. I would like to set expectations but am unsure how to approach the conversation.
I can hardly handle this stress. Joined recently, fresh grad. Small team, with me being the only full time on the project. I don’t know What to do. Anxiety and panic are building. Any advice?

Potentially looking at my last year in consulting. Currently SPG platinum and Delta Gold - qualified for SPG platinum in the new year, but only Delta Silver. Should I look to status match at another airline/hotel before year-end?
Hi. I have H1b valid until Nov 2018. Petition ammendment/extension filed and received RFE. If worst case scenario and it gets denied, can I apply / switch to L1a? If yes, what's the processing time?
Had a third interview with CEO of tech startup last week. Now the HR manager emails me saying she wants me to 'hop on a call' with the CFO tomorrow. I already interviewed with him for the second interview. I'm not sure what to expect, it doesn't make sense that I would have another interview with him but I'm not sure what else it would be. Any ideas?

I get tax brackets but in the UK making 30K you pay ~£6K tax and when you make around 5x more at £150k you pay 10x more tax ~£60k. What things can you do to lower your tax in consulting? (I’m not at 150 yet but most of us will get there hopefully if we stay in this role)
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
What an idea Sirji? Even the police in Kerala think different😀. In my state, we would have given the police gifts to conduct the marriage lol https://www.deccanherald.com/amp/national/south/police-offer-appreciation-certificates-and-gifts-for-weddings-following-covid-19-protocol-in-kerala-980889.html

Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.
Just getting this off my chest: Who are these guys who say things like “I’d like 4 or more kids”? Also, why don’t the women shut it down? I mean the physical, emotional toll of having 1 is hard enough but 4?! You can think about it but unless these men are having it, I don’t see why they have a say. Phew! Ok, thanks for listening.
If anyone wants to study for the CFE but doesn’t want to pay the full price for the study materials and would be interested to split it, please DM me
