What was your "I know I'm done moment" that made you decide you were ready to leave consulting? I am at my second firm with a much better WLB but starting to question whether I need to just exit altogether. I also hear about many ex-consultants being "bored" in industry jobs so want to make sure I am really thoughtful about what it is I am looking for outside of a consulting role. I am over the hierarchy and politics in consulting but not sure it that much better in industry.
Looking for input on TC to target for a MM PE Ops director or up role reporting to an MD. I have 15 YoE total. Is 400 TC directionally right?
Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!
Hi folks, I’m having two offer one from Nagarro for BA role and another from Capgemini for Scrum Master role. Salary is almost same. I’m bit confused should which career line should I prefer given my priority is travelling and on-site. Can you guys provide your feedback/suggestions plz. Thanks
Is PA really worth it or are we really just drinking the kool aid? I'm asking in terms of exit opportunities. For example, most of the people leaving typically make a lateral move (i.e.senior going
at what point should you inform your project you’re wanting to roll-off? do you wait to secure a role on a different project? or do you inform them you’re looking to leave - so that you can inform potential projects when you’re actually coming available?
Engaging in dumb hypotheticals but I'm curious: At 1 YOE post-MBA, would you pick Amazon or MBB if the estimated TC is the same, and you've been working in consulting since your MBA? Obviously this depends on the role, but for the sake of a broader audience, we'll assume the role simply isn't a backwater contracting/etc. role at Amazon and that for MBB it's core consulting. Like an option below & comment your thoughts.
I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.
Are McKinsey offices in Europe and Middle East still hiring? A contact in Dubai office mentioned that the office is completely full and very limited positions are available.

If you’re a non lawyer working in M&A tax or international tax, will you be at a disadvantage when it comes to promotion or exit opportunities?
In my spring review, I was told a central reason that I’m not yet ready for promotion centered around my need to develop more influence internally. Has anyone else, particularly women, received feedback like this? NB:I’ve been in a managerial role for several years at multiple agencies - and in current role, have been working significant overtime to tackle ad hoc projects, volunteering with ERG groups to lead and coach sessions, active participant/planner for social events, etc. since I joined

What to do when a recruiter won’t let you negotiate salary? I have a feeling this person doesn’t want to go back to leadership with a counter offer versus there being an actual cap on the offer.
Is Accenture hiring like crazy? Does anyone know the pay range for Manager in Management Consulting? Does it differ within the practice?
I live in Sydney, Australia and am looking to move over to NYC in the coming months and get a job as a Strategist (I have ~4 years experience, my Fishbowl profile is out of date). At the moment, are people are getting hired remotely/over Zoom calls etc? And to be clear, I don't mean working remotely, just the hiring process. Normally I'm told its pretty much impossible to get hired if not in NY (And still in Aus.), but I'm thinking now could be my chance. I would need to be sponsored though.
Looking for some good vibes, I guess 🦚 🍄🍀☀️Having long lived the “happy life” aka a successful career and a loving relationship, I suddenly find myself unemployed, struggling to find a new role, and in constant fights with my partner following our engagement. Uff. I know, it’ll all be ok eventually, but there are these moments when it’s tough to see the silver lining. How do you keep your chin up on days like these? 🌈
Real talk: how much should those of us who are lower on the totem pole be worried about layoffs?
I'm marrying an american. Can you apply for the GC and spouse visa from europe? So that I can work immediately if we migrate back to the US?
Caught in round of layoffs. Hard finding fulltime, it was easier when I was younger. I’m 40 but I look 30 (lucky with good genes). Would it be crazy if I cut my resume in half and pretended to be 30?

Another supervision/duty post...I have noticed that there is a parent who never has her baby in a car seat and their car “stinks” if you catch my drift. I feel like it’s not my place saying anything but it scares me to see a baby strapped into the front seat of a car...even if they live super close
