What are thoughts with regards to transitioning from a commercial banking portfolio manager at a Canadian big 5 to a strategy & transactions consultant at EY-P. Any pros and cons, does any benefits outweigh the other? Looking to hear everyone’s thoughts.

This might sound like a crazy question but never having worked in public before: Billable hours - if you’re very efficient at your job, do you stretch out the time and work slower to get to your billable hours or do you safe the client the money. In a Situation where you don’t have other projects to work on. Tell me the ins and outs of working billable hours for a complete newbie.
Got 2 offers:
Lucidworks - 33
Boeing - 35(Verbal offer after countered them with lucidworks offer).
Now with freshworks, last round is pending.
Let me know what would be better.
From interview perspective, I enjoyed lucidworks interview as the interviews taken by quality people compared to other two companies. But it is a startup.
Btw, I have been interviewed for 6 rounds in Citrix and waiting to hear from them.
MDs in FDD, how much are you making?
Those of you who have went from having no car to having a car in the city...do you have any regrets? Even before Covid, I’ve often felt so “stuck” without a car, but I‘ve always been too cheap to seriously consider it. (Should mention that I don’t travel much for work, so that might make a difference in answers in the bowl.) Is it life changing!?

Any great podcasts or books you would recommend? Specifically on leadership/business communication skills/ being a part of the “boys club” or better yet- breaking up the boys club!
Are you happy with your company’s women leadership programs? I have just switched jobs, and the new place has nothing in place internally although markets it as something they could help their clients with, which to me seems hypocritical. Also, on the c-suite team there are 5 older males and one female, all white. This is a global organization. I guess I’m super disappointed and have not realized how important it is to me until I joined a place that doesn’t care about it. What would you do?
Does anyone actually take a full day OFF? Without soul crushing guilt of not being “available”?
How do you respond to political conversations at the C-Suite level? People's opinions seem to get stronger the higher up they go and I'd rather not get involved but seems like it's part of the program for executives.
I’m coordinating a virtual leadership summit for our women’s group at work. Any external speakers that you’ve really enjoyed recently? I don’t currently have a specific topic in mind, but looking for something that will really spark interest. The age range of audience is generally 30-55 and predominantly female. I would give preference to a WOC. I’m looking to spend under$15k, so not looking for any real big names.

I’ve been struggling with this, in part because it happened to me in a previous role & I’m trying to leave it behind. I was managing a diverse team which had two white males on it. I recall during my first few wks, whenever I stated something in a meeting 1 of the white males would re-explain what I just said really rapidly, almost in a manic sort of way.The other white male would get really sassy (not how else to describe this) with me at times. Needed to get that out. Thanks for reading
My company is being acquired and I’m currently looking for an open Chief of Staff positions. Any recommendations?
I’m so tired of being spoken down to today. Every call today men have been speaking to me like I’m their daughter. It feels like I’m getting a pat on the head. I am good at what I do and have earned my place. I am supposed to be their peer. I wish they wouldn’t waste my time if they don’t value my opinion. I’m sure as hell not going to take their notes. It feels like this is becoming more frequent as I go higher in my career…or maybe it’s where I’m at now. Just needed to vent.
