Anyone hiring mid to senior level producers in NYC? Most job postings I see are for entry level or combination PM/Producers or social content creators.
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Agile Conflict: how do you manage fundamental disagreements between a PO and scrum master? The two really don’t get along on my project.

Debating taking a Leave of Absence due to mental health and would appreciate some opinions. Pretty sure I have severe depression, some of which stemming from work. Performance on current project has been impacted by my mental health - think I’d be let go after returning from a LoA bc of it. Either I take a LoA now and focus on looking for new jobs or ride out current project until I can find a new job.
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

What is Deloitte open house invite? And what kind of questions can be/should be asked there? Is it an interactive session. Or just like presentation from one way? Can I get to know about the project( support/implement) and role I'll be getting. Pls tell.
My peer compiles reports and will send me emails while cc’ing client management—which is fine but she gives me a deadline for the same day and a deadline that she established herself (the report is for a meeting sometime next week). WTF!!!!

The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
PwC started using google hangouts for final round interviews. Talk about cost cutting... advisory will do so too this fall.

The best private school (best on ranking) in my area is an all girls school (K-12). What’s the pros/cons of sending my daughter to an all girls school?

What does it mean if the hiring manager says after an interview they will contact you but it might be for a different role within the same team for the job you applied for. Is that a ding?
When should I expect to hear back from schools for interviews? I submitted apps September 1st and I feel like I’ve been seeing posts on here of people already interviewing. I’m kind of freaking out 🙃
I graduated last year and was promised a full time salary of 60k (marketing). However, my start date was exactly when Covid hit hard and everyone froze their hiring process and took salary cuts, so my company cut my TC in half. I was loyal to my company and it didn’t hit hard until now. They’re starting to hire many more people in a diff department which makes me think they have the budget now. How should I start and navigate this conversation? Thanks in advance 🙏🏼 (Cross-posted)
What do you do with male consultants continuously trying to claim your space on your project? I feel just because I’m a young female manager that by definition I get less appreciated!

Fellow immigrants in limbo - is it worth contributing to a 401k account? I am 26, just returned to the US on a L1 (so no green card app for the next year).

Can someone explain why they buy EFTs over index funds? A couple years ago I switched my 401k from target date to index funds? Does it make sense to eventually switch those to EFTs? If so, what's the strategy on when to switch?
