Start looking but don't rush


That’s fair. I was thinking if in final promo year eg. senior associate to manager. Should still be able to get a consulting role as a manager if ever return to consulting with industry experience. I just left for a senior PM role while also getting manager offers from competitors. Each case is different though!

Almost bonus. Almost leave time


It is.


Almost same here - need promotion this year and want to leave soon, not burnt out though!

Hello Everyone, I have 4.3 YOE currently and I was offered Engr II - Full Stack position in VDSI. But after doing some research it seems Engr II is usually for YOE between 2 and 4. Is this correct? Will there be a problem for me if I take up this position with my YOE? Since I am a lateral entry, I think promotion to Engr III also would take a lot of time. Also can you please let me know the current designation hierarchy in VDSI?

Hi there. Ex Deloitte Sr Mgr here, currently in tech pre sales (SaaS / MarTech). Recently spoke to both Salesforce and Adobe recruiters for roles that I thought were lateral moves (Sr SA / Sr SC), therefore I did not proceed with the selection process. The recruiters from both companies told me they typically hire at that level, and people are considered for promotion to Principal in 1 to 2 years. I found that odd. Is that right? What’s the typical TC for SAs and SCs there? (15+ yrs exp).


Hey Fishes, Recently got an offer from PharmEasy for the Data Analyst role with a 30 % hike from current salary at Deloitte, where CTC is 8.1 LPA But will have to pay in the training cost along with the joining bonus which comes up to 2.4 lac. Really confused what to do as I've been on bench for 3 months now with no learning opportunity and don't know what kind of projects I might get ahead and what about the wlb as compared to PharmEasy. Some insights will be much appreciated :)

I am half way through my MHA and am having a lot of anxiety about going further into student debt and unsure if this degree is necessary/will pay off. I am currently part of an independent consulting group who works primarily in tech implementations, the last two years has been health focused but moving on to non health related projects. I do not live in a major city so thought pursuing this degree would help me in the local job market down the road. What is your experience w an MHA? Worth it?

After reading my Monday post about my own career change, a reader asked: “What gave you the confidence to make those changes and help change your mindset?” 1. Daily meditation & writing about fears, gratitude, forgiveness, and wins shifted my perspectives. 2. Clarity on what my 1-3 year life plan looked like gave me a blueprint. 3. Interviewing people in roles that fit my blueprint gave me confidence I was on target. You can do this yourself, but a coach will get you there faster.
