Does a Consultant at EY-Parthenon manage junior resources, or are they usually the least tenured on teams? Curious as to the expectations of the role thanks!
I just hopped from one big4 firm to another about 3 months ago. Facebook called me a few days ago wanting to interview me for a Project Manager role I applied to a while ago. Is it too early to go?
At Deloitte now. laid off last year while on medical leave. Landed a new job with the help of a senior mentor and vouched for me not knowing my medical limitations. I just had to take sick leave again on the first project out of the gate. Dr is recommending 40 hours a week which will not fit the requirements of my director role. I feel like I need to switch roles to a non client facing role to be realistic in my health limitations. How do I make the switch and have the convo with w my mentor?
What reason could I give in my exit interview for leaving the firm? I don't want to burn bridges and want to keep the window open to return. But miserable in this current role.
Anyone else get tired of the LinkedIn charade? Every day I see countless posts by people in advertising/marketing that come across as preachy, self-indulgent, humble brags that annoy me. Like, the pompous CEO/CD who writes a long post about that time he hired an intern and learned a valuable life lesson that we could all learn. Or the super-duper smart Copywriter who regurgitates Olgyvisms that we’ve all read a billion times to show his or her worth. It’s 2020. And I’m jaded.
Told an intern at my firm in a different group that reached out to try and join my team that he should be prepared to work 60-70 hours. He smugly laughed and said everyone he knows at our firm works that many hours (we are a B4 and it’s certainly not the case). Then he proceeded to tell me he leads a 10 person workstream. Then he asked me to refer him to managers to get him transitioned into our group. Posting so others can also get a kick out of this.
My boss told me 'Everyday is (my name)'s first day'. Is it because I'm an intern? Are there more hidden meanings to it ?
I’m seeing so many graduates from the U.K. advertising schools with LinkedIn resumes full of 1-2 years of ‘Creative Placements’ at the big agencies. Is it really normal to intern for that long?
