Dear sharks! Help me with online/ classroom MBA program that could be attended during weekends. YOE: 6.5 Role: Project Manager I don’t want to quit my job and pursue full time.
I can’t stand my client. I can’t stand my project. I can’t stand this job. My teammates are starting to get annoying. I need a break but I can’t afford to take a LOA and I have too much work to do to take a vacation. Yay me! Hope everyone else is having a great day :)
Sometimes I have to think about what my client might've been like as a young child or what their mom might be like so I can write a nice, sass-free email back to them.
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.

My (white) manager consistently gives me feedback that I’m “very literal” when doing assignments. She asks for something, I do what her directions say, and she tells me “oh you took that very literally. You’re very literal.” Obviously consulting is subjective and we’ve all had managers give vague directions leading to multiple iterations of work, but at what point do I push back? I’ve also noticed her say this about several black colleagues including clients and the senior mgr on the project.
Analysts and Associates. Don't wear a backpack to the office and don't bring one to client meetings. And by all means don't play Pokemon Go when I see you. It's cute for about three seconds...
Have a senior consultant offer from a Big 4 and a product manager offer from a pharmacy retailer (cvs, walgreens etc), but both are similar roles in digital PM/strategy. Which offer would be best to take to help me eventually exit to the tech industry in a similar role?
Do all big 4 and larger mid size firms have PIP? How long do they usually last, and does anyone get fired for purely performance reasons without being put on a formal PIP?
Jumping around big 4 for promotions, worth it?

Does anyone know the salary difference between quantitative finance/data science jobs at big banks and FIs vs data science jobs in big tech? Assume similar COL between NYC and Bay Area/Seattle.
