Heading into my third year as a manager. Is this the year to start making a case for SM or has everything been spread out a few years.

Are you at EY or another big 4? I’m seeing lately a lot more people getting promoted at M4 vs M3 at EY


Are you selling or do you think you can sell? Do you have strong network ? Then yes if not work on them first


I have a strong network. I think I can sell but haven’t actually done it yet.


If you haven't shown you can at least sell close to $1m a year its an up hill battle at sm and that much longer you'll be parked there. I see so many rush to sm and then fail because they weren't ready and by the time they truly execute at a high level within the sm role they get counseled out because they're out of runway to the next level


This makes sense, but how do you start selling up to $1M a year?! Piggy back on other SMs and Partners and develop relationships?

Does the company provide any insight or coaching on how to approach selling?

I’ll have to ask my mentors about it to see.

When you say network, is it internally other managers, then SMs and partners, or clients? Or both?

any early career consulting opportunities in nyc?


Range Anxiety is REAL!


With all these talks about layoffs, do you guys have any advice for when that time comes (negotiations around benefits, pay, prolonging it, etc.)? -Hasn't happened to me but I'm curious


Keeping personal preferences and philosophy aside, what household income would make it reasonable to splurge $5k on a NYC apartment? No kids obviously. Maybe NYC fishes living in such rentals can chime in :)


Any tips or best practices on meeting with a client for the first time? I'm not leading the engagement, but I'd still like to make a professional impression!


Just had a performance review with my SM while drinking Jack and Cokes in the Delta lounge... As God intended it to be.


haven't slept since tuesday. why am i not in ibanking?


Is there any chance of a salary bump this year? (For cost of living, time at company, etc.)

Best health supplements for women on-the-go?


Question for managers and above: why do you delegate things that are quicker to do yourself? I just got an email: "please add XYZ person to the list of names in the attached Excel and send it back".


Anyone are Oliver Wyman in London? Saw a role that I might be a good fit for. Would love to learn more about the office and potentially get a referral. Also, do they sponsor visas in London?Oliver Wyman


Guy texts me a month after our first date saying he was too busy to respond before because he went on one business trip (in the same state) and had been working 45 hour weeks. Bitch, please.
