Got an interview invitation from Deloitte’s internal corporate strategy group (consultant). I assume no client projects. Anyone have insights into internal corporate strategy consultant roles?

Mainly would like to know how different internal corporate strategy roles are from other consultant positions. Seeking honest input but no trolls please haha

All Speculation: Since you’re already in D you won’t see a change in base/bonus this PY (‘19-‘20) but obviously the range of raise/bonus % will reflect your shift from a client-facing to internal role as well as lean more heavily on firm rather than individual performance. I’m sure WLB is way better although I know there is some travel involved (<10%) for presentations at different offices.

Anyone else feel like that if they aren’t doing the work themselves then it’s never done correctly? Doesn’t matter what it is - admin to client work - always materially incorrect. Also, doesn’t matter what training I give them - a quick overview or an in-depth working session. And then the Partners ask why I’m exhausted all the time.

Interviewing with AWS as a L7 - however the automatic email said Senior Solution Architect (L6) when the Recruiter asked me to interview for Principal Solution Architect (L7) - Managerial. I've been taken for rides before where they over promise and then waste time throughout assessment etc. Passed all the aptitude tests and silly work and email tests pretty much just asking if anyone else have experienced this with AWS - is it a valid concern? Or am I being paranoid?

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

Im an associate at a small firm. I’m potentially referring a significant contingency fee lawsuit to another firm.

I know my firm doesn’t have any conflicts because we are a small firm with very few clients in a completely different practice area. My state bar’s ethics rules doesn’t address this. Thoughts?

Moms help me. I'm resentful that I got pregnant and now stuck dealing with the exhaustion of a newborn and recovery. My soul mate Hubby wanted kids, not me, but since it was "something he couldn't live without" I agreed since I was on the fence. He's super helpful and we have family to help out, which is more than most moms. But the exhaustion and PP depression is making me resent my decision and him. Baby is perfect, a regular healthy full term joy. I'm so blessed. But so miserable. Help.
