Partner One

Hey Partners! I accepted a position at another firm and was bumped from manager to Senior consultant level. Could you give me some advice on 3 key things I can focus on to help me re-advance quickly?

Hi McBee! First, if you are the meme-master McBee then keep up the meme game and bring your new firm some fame. Ok, real advice: you don’t control Your promotion so don’t focus on it. Focus on the things you do control that others use when making promotion decisions. And what you need to control is outcomes. Specifically, the outcomes you want to create are: 1. Clients so happy they want to buy more 2. Team members who feel valued and who feel they are growing in their roles 3. Partners who trust you enough to give you room to do what you do best

Congrats! Focusing on speed can actually become a mental obstacle that holds you back. I'd suggest that you work hard to learn what your new firm does and how they do it, and what the expectations of you are. As you learn, your maturity and experience should help to differentiate you from your peer group. Good luck!

Since this is cross industry bowl, so wanted to have better insights through your experience. I have visual studio 2017 and joined a team who are currently developing on Visual Studio 2019. Will there be any significant impact on the project code just because of ide version change? P. S. I have very limited internet quota based on my current location and downloading new version will be literally not possible.

Has anyone had to get a government security clearance through EY? They say you may have to take a lie detector test and that gives me major anxiety. I don’t have anything to hide but I’m also worried a government engagement won’t increase my skill set. Anyone else been in this position?
