Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG). Anyone heard of them? I'm a newly promoted M1 at about 165k base. This would be for an SM position to build out a new practice. Cont...
So everyone always says FAANG is a quality exit opportunity for strategy consultants. But realistically, of the 5, which truly value consultants? Which value less. Rankings would be helpful.
Any fish with experience moving to an internal, non-consulting role with their firm and have an opinion on making the move now? Would be promotion (which I am unlikely to get in my area of the org due to freezes) but very aware of the old adage “if it’s not billable, it’s killable.” No layoffs yet and no pressure for me to move out of consulting, but this may be an option to level up and maybe have a better exit in 18 months. Thoughts?
Advice and gameplan for networking calls with alumni? This is with the hope of getting a referral by August/September.

Started a job at a tech company. People, culture, hours, benefits/pay is great. However, the role is not what I was expecting. It’s junior & administrative/sales oriented. I thought it would be more analytics & strategy based. Just got another offer for a corporate strategy role. Culture isn’t great, pay/benefits aren’t as good but decent, but I’d learn so much more in the role & it’s a manager title . What do I do? I’m early in my career. I’m happy rn but the role isn’t good career wise

Upgraded to a suite...slammed my foot against a chair walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night because it's so far away from the bedroom. I'm thinking at least 500k points.
Backaches since wfh. Bought a new ergo chair. Think I need a new mattress. Any recommendations for a back/side sleeper? Unsure about memory foam since I've read they sleep hot. Any input is appreciated
Anyone have tips on how to best clarify client briefings with clients? Is there a list of must-ask questions? Our clients often don’t know what they want and I feel like we’re not asking enough/right questions to narrow down on objectives and deliverables. Even when we align on objectives, it still ends up in changing/adding request once they see creative development. Simply want to avoid having too many rounds of revisions as they often want to “test and see” numerous amount of versions.
Today’s my birthday, I don’t need a party or much fanfare. I just wish I wasn’t getting random reminders to to update my security settings, emergency contacts, or life insurance.
Currently interviewing with Deloitte S&O, what are the salary bands like for a consultant? They are saying they can't bring me in as a senior consultant because I don't meet the 5 yr work experience
What do you miss about your job that can’t be done WFH? I miss 1) client and meetings with opposing counsel to discuss high-stakes transactions where everyone’s dressed to the nines and do “serious business”; 2) expensive lunches; 3) happy hours and 4) wearing my suits. None of that is coming back before 2021 (probably not only the meetings, but the transactions are going away too...) Glad I still have my job though.
