How to get into PE ops? Currently have 3yr operation consulting experience and a non-mba master
I keep getting rejected branding agencies for roles despite having freelanced at some amazing places and done positioning work there or at ad agencies. My sense is that they only want people who have worked at Interbrand, Superunion, Futurebrand, etc & aren’t open up outsiders. Is that right? Am I doing something wrong? Should I even be chasing these agencies? I feel like it’s a constant uphill battle and I’m losing the strength to keep going.
My team is organizing a wine + cheese pairings team event where they mail us all boxes and we enjoy together on zoom. I haven’t worked with them before and I just joined the project so I don’t want to just opt out but I’m also pregnant (very early, not telling anyone yet). How can I participate without alerting anyone or drinking/eating soft cheeses?

Thoughts on Stanford LEAD program?
I like that is online, part time, no gmat requirements and affordable.
I like my career choice and looking to stay in PM. Really just want a better school on my resume, some intellectual courses and a feeling that I'm working towards the next level.
I know Coursera/Udemy is an option. Also looking at PM courses from Product School/280 Group.
Thoughts on best path forward?
Any permanent residents here. How did your company manage you to travel and work in the US? (i.e. not eligible for TN visa)
Any suggestions on how to get around the “gatekeeper?” My job relies on calling and visiting cold leads and getting past the gatekeeper and speaking to someone who can make a decision is becoming nearly impossible.
I saw this on LinkedIn today and it makes me wonder if I’m ever really going to be seen as an American. All said and done, only Indians still welcome/respect him in spite of his lapse in judgement.
Hi all, I’m in a mtg heavy culture and realized I wasn’t getting much movement btwn WFH and back-to-back calls. So I got a minimalist treadmill with a collapsible bar and wheels for easy portability. I don’t have the space for a fancy standing desk but found a compact, adjustable height one with lockable wheels. I do my most focused work on two monitors at my desk (ie dinner table) and hop on the treadmill for check-ins and some strategy calls. It’s made a huge difference in focus and mood! 🏃🏻♀️👩🏻💻

When asking for referral from an old connection is it best to be direct about my intentions or is it better to set up a call to “understand the culture”? If we both know why I’m reaching out I don’t want to play dumb. Thanks for your pointers!

For those whose company doesn't provide a cell phone & instead provides a monthly reimbursement, do you get a separate device or do you just receive work email and your personal phone? How do you manage privacy issues & do you ever worry about having to turn your device over in the event of litigation? Do you worry about notifying a client if your personal device is lost, stolen, or compromised? Especially interested to hear from those working w govt clients & receive *email* on personal device

The manager on the project I’m on has a 7am status call, 12pm status call, and 6pm status call. She also checks in via zoom every 2 hours between the status calls. I’ve never hated a manager so much in my life. Can’t wait for this project to end . Actively working with my scheduling to never be put on a project with them again.
Is it smart to switch companies nowadays? Hearing about many layoffs, got 50% higher comp and hot skill at the next company
Is WLB better at S& than MBB/Tier2 or worse?
I feel like it’s probably the latter because of Utilization/PwC culture, but want to validate.
Before Delta or travel agent told me my flight was cancelled, Marriott called to confirm stay because all flights to airport were cancelled. They didn't even know I was flying in. Kudos to them.
