Hi Everyone! Looking to learn more about the management consulting strategy arm in Big 4 - would love to have a chat and ask a few questions.
Any suggestions on timing to tell my boss I’m leaving teaching for another job? I make 26k a year and have been working multiple jobs to pay bills. I’m leaving primarily because I get paid so little. New job pays double for better and less stress. I feel bad not telling parents who have signed up to come specifically for me. But they have zero idea how poorly I’m paid.
Was curious if there were any ad/marketing orgs for South Asian American professionals in the NYC area. Saw some activity in some national bowls + groups, but was curious.
Also happy to chat!
Everytime someone texts at work, they never say good morning. They just get straight into the topic. In my previous company's culture (in Australia), it's offensive not to ask: "Hello, how are you doing?" before getting into anything work related. Does anyone have a better work culture where people actually care about each other and not treat work colleagues as if they're just robots doing work?

Walking desk vs regular treadmill? I have been researching walking treadmills/desks but I find that they dont have the best reviews compared to getting a regular treadmill. Does anyone have any advice on which to choose? Trying to stay under 1k and dont like that you often cant run on the walking treadmills even though many companies claim you can, but looking for something smaller than a traditional treadmill. Id like to work and walk but Id rather get the best for my money.

Additional Posts in New Business. The good, the bad, the ugly.
I’ve had bad experiences with New Business hired in the past. As in, nothing happened over 6-12 month periods bad. My agency (independent national player with Fortune 500 clients) is asking me to help search for a dedicated resource to business development. What should I be looking for and what should the agency’s expectations be? Thank you!

I find myself looking for a new role in agency / production company biz dev. I co-founded a creative production agency back in 2010. Grew it to a staff of 80 FTE, creating strategic content-driven campaigns for brands, tv networks, streamers, platforms, publishers etc. We developed and produced original TV as well. Around 2016 we positioned the company for sale and then sold in Jan 2019. After going over to the acquirer in 2020, I’m now free for the first time in a long time. What to do?

Please comment with a bit about you and your role. Thanks!

Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage. This isn't your typical biz dev role - it's designed to be a hybrid/cross-discipline role for someone who wants to use their full creative, strategic brain and most definitely NOT stay in their lane. Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)
Say we’ve got a pitch in 3 weeks. What’s a typical fee for a freelance strategist to lead the strategy and work with the team to build the deck? How much would they make in that gig?
