Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
Should I take a 15% pay cut and leave Accenture for industry? Or wait it out to find a better paying opportunity? Worried about chargeability and layoffs, hate the process of getting staffed. Wondering if it's worth it though for such a big drop.
How do I nicely tell a director (not the one I report to) that I don’t want to work on a project that she’s trying to get me on? My manager and I already had a conversation about me not working on this specific thing (he and I both agree it isn’t something that’ll help my case for promotion, doesn’t need three people working on it, etc). Manager said he’d talk to her but it isn’t sinking in…
KPMG announced no 2020 layoffs, but at this point, has any other firm provided this or a similar plan forward to protect employees during these times?
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?
I must confess that I have been purposefully making mistakes in my work to get my partner to yell at me 😩 he started not catching my mistakes so I had to make them more egregious. I fear that my kink might end up getting me fired 🥲
If you are laid off and cannot find a job doing your day job, what will you do? I am trying to prepare a plan b and c. My car is too old for Uber eats etc. curious your thoughts.
Did any KPMG folks get laid off this week?
Quit my old firm, started my new one 4 weeks ago. On a understaffed first project acting as senior /manager with a difficult client. Thinking about quitting to go back to my old firm. Thoughts? Left on good terms/open door with my team offering a counter offer previously.
If you were laid off from your last job do you think it will affected your negotiation in your next job?
Can partners get fired?
So I’m thinking about relocating to Portland since I’m on a long term project there, but I’m a bit scared that I won’t like it there, especially when it comes to nightlife and meeting others/dating.
Did PWC announce layoffs today? Or were they more targeted / based on performance and utilization? My partner just met with HR 😢
What's the norm for consulting firms during a shutdown? Do people on non funded projects usually get furloughed or kept on? Asking because I've been at a bigger firm that kept everyone on during the last shutdown, but I'm at a much smaller company now that is going to furlough on a project by project basis (if your project is shutdown, you get furloughed). Just curious if this is commonplace among smaller firms/what the norm is for bigger ones as well? What's been your experience?
If we are working for a Big 4 as a Senior Consultant and expecting a promotion to Manager in the next 1.5 years and eventually want to exit into industry, then does it make sense to exit right now or take the promotion and exit?
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
Ok…I’m curious. I pretty much have to beg, barter and steal to get supplies for my classroom. Do teachers in states with legal cannabis have this problem? It’s my understanding that sales tax from its purchase goes to schools, or is that all smoke and mirrors…No pun intended. 😉
Hi Fishes, what can I ask as expected salary in Deloitte Malaysia for Senior consultant level? Any input on current salary slabs will be helpful!

Anyone have experience starting a new job for a week then leaving because you got a better offer (as in, was interviewing with both places at the same time, but one moved slower). Any huge red flags or issues?
I had a final interview last Thursday and was told I would hear back Monday or early this week. I still haven’t heard anything, how long should I wait until following up with the recruiter?
Does anyone know what devices UBS provides in regards to WFH accommodations? Will a work laptop be provided or do I have to use my personal device?
How do you answer your current employer when they ask why you’re leaving? The truth is that I’m leaving because I’m going to a firm that has way better exit opps and MBA placement, but saying that to their face doesn’t feel like a good idea. What should I do?
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?

At 45, just have 430k saving in 401k, ETFs and saving accounts. I was late starter in consulting. Any advise for making it up to always 800-1’ in next 15 years.
I haven't interviewed for a new role in several years and have my first interview tomorrow - what are some insightful questions I should ask?
Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.

I'm currently a TVC at Google and was contacted by a Google recruiter who didn't realize that I'm currently working at Google. When I told her about my current role, she said she's not sure if I can be considered and has been non responsive on my follow ups. What exactly is the policy in this case? Would my applications for a FTE role be simply not considered too?
