I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
It looks like I’m going to go 0/3 on my MBB apps :( Where are the next best consulting firms to go to assuming that my primary goals in no particular order are MBA placement, compensation, project/industry variety, and ability to be promoted quickly?

- Where do most applicants come from for associate roles? (5YoE requested) what's the average background - still oxbridge and top MBA?
- Associate renumeration structure?
- is it more people/strategy focused like Accenture or more tech development
- Where does the majority of their client base sit?
- is travel frequent?
What are other MBB tech alternatives to B4?
I’ll be taking on a new client in the new year - a financial personality / influencer with less than 10k followers. One of her goals is to grow her following by 5,000 in Q1. I’m already sharing counsel that such an aggressive growth goal in one quarter isn’t realistic but she’ll still want to see some growth tactics in her plan. What are some good ways to grow an audience for an influencer type account?
Something that severely gets into my nerves:
1 advise clients on tech and sometimes help them debug stuff.
This client told me they tested the solutions I gave and that it didn't work, and requested a meeting to sort it off. We schedule a meeting. I just inspected their account and they haven't tested shit, I can see the same code mistakes, they never tried to change anything.
I'm pissed. They're basically wasting my time and I don't even see the point in meeting with them.

This month I have come to facing that reality that I need to leave my current company due to lack of growth within my career path staying in sales and business development. Primarily no opportunity to not relocate to work remote. Not interested in switching to marketing or enablement there. Interested in advisory, technology consulting, project management or remaining in business development in Chicago. Anyone open to sharing where you are/what you do for a referral and advice?
Mental health issues in our profession are finally being recognized. While mental health issues are not unique to lawyers, the profession and it's client service mantra present unique challenges.
Most of my bowls are currently all about lay-offs and long times in between client projects, regardless of industry/function. Am curious if we sustainability folks are feeling it as much as the rest of our businesses? Have you seen steep drops in commercial activity or do you feel the upswing in ESG continues to buck the trend?
Just got promoted and I am now the ONLY Black female director in my entire firm. Also hearing I might be the first to be promoted to that level. (They’ve hired at least one person at that level maybe 7 years ago but she left.) About 3K people. FYI, I’m not on the client side, I’m part of an enabling function. Anyone in this boat? It’s nice to be recognized for my contributions, but I’m a low key bothered that we are so far behind.
Raise and bonus were a huge disappointment and just had a PPMD lie to my face about a project. 10 years with Deloitte and great reviews, but it’s time to move on. Looking for feedback from other companies.
Do most people have MBAs client side ? Is it impossible to get into the brand side of things without an MBA? Not willing to go into debt/ do not even want to go back to school for a job.

I have been in conversations with a couple companies about new positions that they’re considering me for. I have built relationships with and respect them highly, but am unsure of my future plans - am strongly considering grad school in the fall. Is there a way for me to let them know gracefully and ask if they’re still open to working together? I feel pretty sure about grad school but nothing is set in stone and I want to be transparent without shooting myself in the foot. Thanks!
A lot of people in my life tend to talk very fast, including some of my female friends and my mom. Basically they would talk so much and so fast before I am even able to respond, and they keep interjecting me. Is it because I am gay?
