Any other consultant golfers on here? What are your handicaps and how often do you play? I’m a +1.1 with the new World Handicap Index and generally get out a couple times per week, project permitting.
My day consisted of listening to my senior and manager whine about not being as far as they had planned in life and running into a former coworker who left to work at a client and is loving life 🤷♂️

Fish fam, advice needed: I received an SA offer from S& and need to decide if I should accept. Will be transitioning from Industry (3 yoe). Current role at F100 - recently promoted to global role and EVP likes me, I like the team, great visibility (M&A files etc), LT Opptys to do a stint in a different geography. However, comp progression is glacial. S&- base comp is 25% more, would be interesting to go back to client work, negative would def be WLB . continued- Strategy&
Hi, I was on a production support project in Tech Mahindra and I switched to PySpark developer role in CTS. My CTC updated from 4 LPA to 12 LPA. I have 3.5 YOE. Can you please share your thoughts about this switch in terms of profile change and the CTC? Is PySpark developer same as a data engineer role? Thank you.
My client in a nutshell.
Let’s make a Creative Complaints bowl. A bowl dedicated to venting about what the client/account/pm did today to piss us off.
The Client is saying the actual hours I have worked are high. This is an extremely weird situation. I have given him a breakdown and it's still not enough. Anyone faced this before ? Suggestions ?
Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
Account just sent new info from the client for the 3rd time today, for the 5th day in a row.
Back to back calls every day, unrelenting context switching at 30 minute intervals. At any given moment my only goal is to just make it through my next meeting / client call / orals. That's it. I'm literally existing in pure survival mode day after day. Anyone else in this special kind of Hell? Anyone successfully pull themselves out?
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html

Hi fishes, May i know what is the compensation paid for a 12 year experienced SAP project manager will get in PwC SDC for mumbai location. I have HR round soon. Thanks in advance
Let’s say you have PTSD and that traveling is one the triggers. At what point would you bring this up in the hiring process for a remote job when they expect you travel a handful of times a year? I’m afraid if I say anything that I’d never get hired.
Really interested in women’s health, any strategic avenues in this? I would even take a pay cut to do something fulfilling in this industry. Any companies I should be following?
I am looking to switch careers. I have been in my current career for nearly 20 years. I need a change. I have masters degree in instructional technology, health care administration, and English. I am working on trying to work my current skills into today's job market. That is more difficult than I anticipated. I guess I'm wondering if there really is anything out there to switch to? I feel lucky to have a job, but it is getting very depressing and difficult to get up for work.
Hi! Need help evaluating some offers and thinking about long term growth and trajectory. Have little more than 2 YOE in consulting. Also interviewing with PwC Strategy&, but no offer yet.

Startup (unicorn) TC (with stock options after 1Y) ~95K

Hi EY Fishes, EY has officially announced the release of Annual Compensation letters on 30th September. 6 more days to go!
Has anyone left for a local firm and bounced back to top 10/big 4 or top 10? I've been interested in working at a local firm for some time, have an opportunity, but want the opportunity to get back to something larger if I learn I hate it.
I need a hobby. Turning 40 tomorrow. 😑 My life has been nothing but work and wine for the past 16 years. I think hitting 40 seems like a wake up call to do more than work. I just don’t have any interest in anything besides sleeping. I am very successful as an attorney but the costs have been no partner, few friends, no kids(I am thankful for that) and just nothing that makes me happy.
Can I get a conventional loan with a 670 credit score? No need to bash me please. Just trying to get some insights
I'm thinking of applying for Consultant - Forecasting role at ZS Toronto. Could someone help me with the work culture and WLB at the Toronto ZS office? I have 5 years of relevant experience at IQVIA, Canada.
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
I will have my BCG experienced hire interview in two weeks, what are some last minute thing I can do? Keep casing?
