Which brands are killing diversity and inclusion right now? They all won’t be Nike-Kaepernick but would love to know who else is implementing meaningful, measurable work.
In the middle of interviewing for a role externally right now. Would other firms generally expect you to start after we get bonus? Even if I get the offer in mid-Nov…this means I won’t be able to start at a new firm until mid-Feb (given 30 day garden leave after bonus and resignation). Is that a usual/ok timeline?
Do these immigration rules (h1b changes to rules rumors) already started to have an effect on hiring practices for consulting such as MBBs? Does H1B sometimes replace Americans on many occasions?
I took a new job in order to move across the country for my husband's promotion and I hate my new job. The role sold to me by the recruiter and company leadership is not at all what I am actually doing. I am so overworked it's unreal. At first I thought that maybe I just sucked, even though I'm a seasoned sales professional with 11 years experience, but then I found out that I have 227 accounts vs the 35 & 64 that my counterparts have. Do I go over my boss's head and discuss with leadership?
I have worked at my current job for 14 years in several departments. I have 2 years of supervision experience. I want to move into a leadership role. I think I need to leave my current employer for this to happen. Any suggestions?
I’m current an S1 in corporate tax for a Top 10. I had an interview with a Big 4 for a tax technology position, but didn’t get in. I’m heartbroken because it was my dream job. 😅Everyone I spoke to seemed to like my experience and the recruiter said the team liked me as well, but they didn’t offer any feedback. Any advice on software or certifications I should get to help me get into tax technology and tax transformation? I’d really appreciate it - thank you for hearing me out!
Has anyone in the national firms moved from an SEC focused audit manager role to your standards and professional practice group? What was your experience like in the transition? How are your hours, and compensation? Thanks in advance!
Does anyone do extra work for your company that you are not being compensated for? I’m not talking going above and beyond. I joined our newly created ESG committee and instead of just a volunteering role to channel my passion, it has turned into steering ESG strategy. I enjoy it, but we’ve now had the committee for 1+ yr and there’s no sign that it becomes formalized into our “day job” roles or formal acknowledgment. I would be happy with a bottle of champagne at this point. Thoughts?

Anyone have insight on joining a company that’s known as a “white boys club?” Have an offer in hand that I really like but not much diversity from what I see. Not sure how this’ll impact me, if at all
Any tips for getting my resume seen at FAANG/major tech companies in the SF Bay Area? I’ve already tried going through as many contacts that I know of in the groups I’m interested in. I’m trying to make a jump from PwC manager (8 YOE) in Cyber, Risk & Reg into a project management or program management role on the business side (bus ops or strategy). My background is in information systems and business IT operations/contracting. Microsoft Facebook Apple Netflix Google Airbnb Salesforce
Ok fishes. I see a lot of recruiters posting about pivoting into HR. I’m in a situation about 90 degrees away from that. Working in a smaller company (150 EEs) and was thrown into HR from Office Manager. I’m looking to move on from the company but I have almost no recruiting experience! I’ve been on hiring committees for RFPs and done reference checks before but nothing else. Do I attempt to move into recruiting or just look for opportunities to build this skill set where I am?
Any fishes who have been tricked/lowballed when leaving a big 4 / mbb to a smaller firm, and they bring you in at a more junior role than you had before, what impact does it tend to have on your CV in the long run? Have you essentially lost the Ace you were holding by working for a big 4/mbb or is it recoverable?
Front Bar in Chi has killer coffee, full bar, cool vibes. Draw backs: all gender bathrooms. Picture a standard bathroom with stalls. Sorry to girl going next to me, but I had tacos last night.

I've been at McKinsey for a few years now and think it's time to make a switch. One of the paths I'm most interested in is product management. How similar are product management interviews to consulting interviews? Are their any Victor Cheng consulting interview prep videos equivalents for the PM interview world?

1 year out of school w/ 6 months of experience doing contract work as an ERP consultant , currently working with a strategy firm (6 months ) ... liked the technical stuff way more .

Consulting 🐠 who left for industry, does WLB get better? How is the daily stress and hours? 2020 WFH was brutal and I’m thinking of getting out soon.
Deloitte 🐠, I cleared an SM level interview process over a week ago and recruiter promised to send a written offer once it’s approved. I have not received the any written offer or communication in a week. Meanwhile another Deloitte team just reached out for similar role but different vertical. Do you think I should interview with the new team? Deloitte
How do I transition to tax technology software data scientist? I started boot camp last and I’m doing Python right now and after 7 days I’d say I’m intermediate to advanced already. Should I start applying to coding jobs now?
Need some advice. I’ve been working with my current employer for 10 months. I have a bachelors in business management and 4.5 years of experience in different functions of HR & have worked for large organizations such as Blue Cross Blue Shield. Someone was hired in my team recently and I found out that this person makes $27K more than me. This new team member has 3-4 years of experience in HR and a BS in Psychology. They are the Sr HR Specialist and I am HR Specialist. Continue in comments
Soo….has anyone embarrassed themselves in front of students? Today I got my foot wrapped up in a kid’s Chromebook charger and bit the dust in the aisle between desks. The good news is that I landed on the best possible body part, so it’s all good. This is second only to the day I ripped my skirt all the way up the back while directing choir…don’t ask.
For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?
