Consulting has turned me into a cynical a******. I used to be happy, funny and fun and now I'm borderline depressive, tired and unenthused about anything. (I'm looking to exit)
Is it worth getting a top secret clearance? Does it improve exit opps (firms and pay), and does it impact your project selection (leadership pressure you to do only TS work)?
Genuine question and attempt to understand: for those of you who are upset or unhappy about more robust efforts at diversity and inclusivity, can you explain why these efforts upset you? Or worry you?
Any insight into TCS M&A group? They reached out offering $200k for an M&A specialist role and would be a significant jump from my current salary. Unsure what they do in M&A space since they focus largely on delivery vs strategy
I have an interview scheduled for this Friday and I don’t think I’ll be ready or have enough time to prepare. I just checked my email and realized how much work I have to get done and it’s looking like I’ll be working a lot of hours this week so I won’t have much time to prepare for my case or technical interview. Should I email the hiring team and ask to reschedule or just not sleep this week so I can fully prepare?
Thoughts on direct lending as an exit?

Hey Sales 🐠, kindly requesting your advice. I have 4 YOE in customer success and 2 YOE as a presales solutions consultant, all in the health tech space. I’d like to grow into a sales role (e.g. Account Executive), but am not sure what a good next step should be. I don’t have any full cycle sales experience or a history of a meeting quotas, but I am comfortable in C-suite interactions. Any suggestions on what type of sales roles to consider next? Thanks!
I've an interview scheduled for this week with EY for the role of Consultant - Performance Improvement. For first round I was asked to submit a case study solution.

I'm in a position where I don't like the tasks that are coming with my next promotion, but I really love my company (culture-wise). I have no idea whether I should jump ship or not.
An opportunity sort of fell into my lap and wanted to get other thoughts. Internal audit manager role, 100% remote, 20% base increase plus better benefits. I work on a lot of audits on the tax side so am familiar with audit. M4 in big 4, not sold on staying in tax. Would I be qualified and is this a terrible idea?

For anyone whose team held back on promotions due to covid impact on revenue, how much did you push back on not receiving a promotion or raise (separate from a bonus, and if you were up for / expecting the promotion)? Did you ask for anything else in place of the promotion/raise? Context: smaller team ~25 within a larger company. All performance reviews leading up to year-end review have been very positive and in a non-covid world I would’ve been a lock for promotion.

Hi, I’m a Manager at a Big 4 firm. Do a lot of change management, talent strategies work. Am looking to go into MBB for a smaller firm feel. Can anyone be so kind to help me with a referral? Thank you
I received an offer from a quant fund. My offer letter doesn’t explicitly state my role/position, it is nyc based, and that it’s full time. It also doesn’t provide benefits breakdown, just a blanket statement that I’m eligible. I’ve spoken to the recruiter about these items, but general response is that this is standard for the company. To me this is all very strange and I feel it should be defined more. Does this sound normal to others? Can’t tell if i should push on this more or leave it.
PwC moms, looking up the paid parental leave policy. It seems like even though I will be eligible for 26 weeks of leave, only 8 of these will be paid. Is that right, looking for guidance here.
