Ladies, if you want to succeed just do the EXACT OPPOSITE of everything Cathy Engelbert recommends here: http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/why-self-promotion-is-not-the-best-route-to-the-top/
When you immediately start looking for a job after your promotion and raise... For more money....
Anyone taken the pay day to switch between competitors (ACN, Deloitte, PwC, etc.)? If so, what kind of raise / bonus did you get? I'm a new consultant making ~$95k. Also interested in MBB figures.
Got an unexpected and significant raise. No formal notification anywhere, except my paycheck. Had to confirm with HR and it's true. 🤑
Anybody else get the unpublished delta promotion based off 2015 mqd? I narrowly missed gold based on segments and miles but qualified for diamond.
Has anyone had a positive or negative experience with Delta's "consulting fast track" promotion?
Can't decide if it's best to move to a less stressful job or not. Some days I love it, and am up for early promotion, other days I'm inconsolably sad and can't think of anything but applying elsewhere
Hypothetical: you've been at your firm <1yr. Things are going well but you're not eligible for a promotion this year. Should you accept an offer from another firm for more money or stay?
When you get passed over for a promotion and your peer gets it... The same peer you helped bring on and the same peer you helped with almost every assignment in the last year ...... Neattttttt
Female Directors: why are you at your firm? Going up for promotion and I need motivation for 5 year plan. Thanks ladies :-)
Snapshots - have 50% partially at next level, 30% next level and 20% at level. Thoughts on possibility of promotion?

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...
Are you usually open to informational interview requests? I've gotten a few cold emails this week. I try to accommodate since after all, we were all there once. Curious what other's views are.
My boyfriend, also a consultant, has double the amount of Marriott nights that I have. I feel so inferior.
Is consulting worth it?
The entire team is in a meeting except me 🤔
Folks with student loans, what's your monthly payment like? My loan is super expensive (14.5%) and a huge chunk of my salary goes in to it. Want to see what everyone else is doing!
Has anyone ever been granted a status match with SPG? No Platinum Challenge, a straight status match from Hyatt Diamond, Marriott Platinum, or Hilton Diamond.
What all should one work on in order to get a good jump in their salaries when they switch?
Networking events are completely pointless, ineffective, and most people dislike them. Why do they still exist?
