Question: Does it give me any edge applying at Google if one of their global recruiters sent me a referral link to apply instead of just applying online? Seems legit.
It’s been a hot minute. Thai Basil Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Hoisin Sauce (Keto). My pre-covid work clothes are now loose on me. I’ll have to buy a new work wardrobe wherever that may be. I quit my job and am back in school. Goodbye tax, goodbye busy seasons, goodbye billable hours.. 😁
Back to big 4 I go! Bye boutique firm 👋🏾👋🏾👋🏾
Considering MBB offers here. Background = ~2YOE at tier 2 (think LEK/EYP/S&). Mck role is a Junior Associate position with the highest salary offer, BCG and Bain offering an experienced AC equivalent position (with a potentially faster promotion track to SAC etc). I've heard and seen that McK experienced hires often do worse on average than BCG/Bain esp at junior levels and wanted to get some thoughts on how I should make my decision. Thank you!
Is there anyone at Dropbox who is willing to give me a referral for a software engineer internship position next summer (2022)? Thanks in advance!
I have got offer from wipro ...I have been selected in bulk hiring..... And HR said that you will be on bench for 2 weeks and then you will be given option to select project. Can anyone please confirm does it happen with every person who joins wipro? Will I remain on bench for longer period of time?
Former Senior Manager in Advisory here - does anyone feel like it’s a steep wall trying to break into tech industry for any role that has a manager title (e.g., Manager, XYZ Function)? I exited as a Senior Program Manager (IC role), I could absolutely not find anyone in industry willing to trust me managing people. Has anyone felt the same? What’s the reason for this wall? I’ve managed tons of teams and managed their career dev while at Big 4...what am I not seeing that I should see?
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?
I wrote this for people who have been laid off recently, hopefully it's helpful. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/pink-slips-new-black-josh-d-weiss
Asking to the Indian folks, for the ones laid off or having issues and having to go back home, how is the job market currently in India? Any of you tried looking around?
I’ve been a jr at my agency for one year. How should I approach my manager about a promotion? I’ve been taking on a much larger role the past 5 months (cont...)
Got laid off on Monday. Felt okay at first, but now feel inadequate and useless since Julie Sweet mentioned the 25K that Accenture laid off were low performers. I know I wasn’t a poor performer, I got dinged for not doing enough projects in my practice, but still go top reviews for my projects. Just want to vent.
Just started a new role in finance and I’m the only woman on the team. It’s been 3 weeks and the guys have been pretty unwelcoming and kind of rude. The first day everyone was welcoming but it went downhill since. One of them keeps trying to scare me that the work will get hard etc and there’s always awkward silence and sometimes unnecessary rude remarks. I just started and don’t feel right what should I do.
I’ve had a few friends die tragically in the last couple months - only one being COVID-related. I’ve been dealing with lots of grief and I’m trying out BetterHelp to talk through some stuff. Haven’t had an appointment yet, but I set my account up using my firm laptop and now I feel like that was really dumb. Am I an idiot?
Woke up with a scratchy throat, got a rapid covid test that came back negative, and am scheduled to get my first dose of the vaccine tomorrow. Reallyyy want to get the vaccine and am thinking the throat thing is probably just allergies since otherwise I feel 100% fine. Think it’s ok to go through with the appointment tomorrow?
Laid off at Ogilvy yesterday
Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).
How do the pension benefits work for partners/principals at the big 4? Can anyone share details on vesting rules or calculations? I assume it varies from firm to firm…just wanting to understand the difference with what Accenture offers MD’s (401k, VEIP).
What companies use product principles in their development process. LinkedIn is big on this - every PRD lists out “product principles” at the top and they’re heavily discussed. I think it’s an odd part of the product culture at LinkedIn and an curious what other companies do this.
How hard is it to transition from a LS consulting role; mostly focused on commercial strategy, market access and CI projects towards a VC/P-E role in LS? What are the best steps to position yourself for future exit into these types on roles?

So, any NON standing desk recommendations? I don’t really like standing desks. I’d like something that looks decent, that has at least some storage, with a good amount of… square footage, I guess?
If I rolled off my project and fully transitioned a role to another individual, what is the appropriate amount of time I should expect to field / answer follow-ups related to the project?
Are firms done with their performance-based separations and layoffs yet? I have been holding my breath because I’m unassigned from now through the end of the year.
Hi guys, Happy Sunday. Could you please suggest me good power BI course, so one can prepare for interview as well?

Bringing my parents to US. Dad is 60+, mom 55+ 1. Which Indian health insurance should I opt for? 2. Any fine print I need to look for?
No joke. I just found out one of our ADs takes his Apple monitor home when he decides to WFH because working off his laptop is annoying. I mean, isn’t that why you have a desk...
