I have a question for HR/People Department leaders: For companies that are 1,000+ employees, what is your ideal HR/People Department structure? How many direct reports, and sub departments/teams does the CPO have, and what are roles are you hiring for (Traditional HR roles or more fluid/hybrid People Ops roles)?
What do you usually ask/talk through in informal introductory calls with a company? Not necessarily looking to immediately go into a new job / interview, but want to know more about the company as I think through transitioning jobs in a few months/this summer.
Moms, both husband and I are nearing the end of our parental leave. We live in a two bedroom in NYC. We are thinking of hiring a nanny. The plan is that I would work from one room and husband would work from another room. We can move the changing table and pack n play in the living room, and the nanny and the baby can hang in the living room. Does this sound like a good plan?
Considering an exit opportunity at a higher level + much higher salary with comparable benefits to Deloitte in everything except parental leave which is 8 weeks followed by short term disability.
Anyone with exit opportunity stories or experiences? How long did you stay in consulting, how much did you make, how much did you make with the new opportunity, what roles, etc

I feel like tax is not for me and want to get out before I get too far! I’m three years in and am a HUGE people person. I love connecting, leading, teaching, helping, and get none of that in my role at PwC. I stare at excel sheets all day and try to figure out wtf the associate did compared to last year. Does anyone have thoughts on a Career that would be good for someone like me? Does anyone know anything about project managers? Or something like that? Hard to replace my income I guess too... 🥺

Any McKinsey fishes had a subpar case interview in round 1 and still progress in the recruiting progress?(assuming other interviews were good)
Exiting to Tech in a sales / consulting services role. Clearing $400K inclusive of RSUs. Really felt like I was not given the opportunities on high visibility accounts at my firm and somehow my client / sales / firm impacts were overlooked. Always felt like I was swimming upstream and my comp was basically flat over the last 3 years. So I bid adieu to consulting - for now.
Is the interview process to get into IBD harder or easier than top consulting firms like BCG/McKinsey/Bain? Where do the truly smart people work nowadays?
Received an offer to lateral to a Big Law firm in my current state. Kind of my dream job. Recently decided with my spouse that we’ve had more than enough of our current state and we want to move out of state next year. There’s no local office for this firm where we’re going, and no idea if remote would be an option. Conflicted on whether it’s fair to take the position, although I really want it. Thoughts?

What’s the best time to switch jobs after maternity leave? Is there any policy at Blackstone on how long we need to stay after maternity leave?
I went T2>MBB and am thinking of going back to T2 because I prefer to aim for partner (MBB is not sustainable for me) rather than taking industry exit... Is this a dumb move? I’ll be dropping pay slightly but with better working hours one step below partner vs industry at ‘head of’ level...
How long did you have to wait after an interview? I think if you don’t hear back after a week, you are not considered.
Anyone at Droga5 who can provide a referral?
Has anyone here used a service to help you find a new job? I’m looking at one where they source and apply for jobs for me. They’ll also help me rework my resume, LinkedIn, and other materials, as well as interview coaching. I’ve been looking for a new position on my own with no luck for the past 6 months. The downside of this service is they charge a commission based on the salary for the job they place you in. Thoughts or advice?

Do companies like amazon, Google or msft allow you to propose changes to offer letter terms or clauses like non compete? I’m wondering if I should review the offer letter with my attorney. If they aren’t flexible, I don’t want to spend $$. It’s for a senior tpm role if it matters.
Holding offer from acn CDO, decent salary but they mentioned they are lax on firing people if they aren't ready for promo. That's another way to say they don't promote as easily? Not sure what to do
