Was interviewing with a firm and soon after receiving an offer, learned of bad culture/toxic partners in the practice group from a couple of associates who recently lateraled from the firm. I turned the offer down. A partner that I clicked with while interviewing reached out asking me why I turned down the offer. Should I be honest and relay what I heard?
Hello. I work at a mid size erp/epm consulting firm and my base salary is not comparable to big4s. I currently make a TC of 105k with two years of consulting experience. I asked for a raise last month and now my TC will be pumped up to 126k at the end of year. I have been poached by many consulting firms and some are offering 135-150k TC. I have a masters degree in data science and 4 years of working experience. Does it make sense for me to look around even after I asked for a raise?
I’m started to grow exhausted of all the “or” thinking. Politics. Culture. Industry culture. It’s like everything has turned into a sporting event in which you’re on the winning or losing team. 0 sum game vs additive and abundance thinking. Why not find the great things and add to it vs finger pointing and burning the whole thing down?

Hi! I’m a solution analyst, hired on a year ago as a campus hire. What is the typical raise associated with promotion to solution specialist? Is there a merit-based raise as well as a separate promotion raise? Just want an idea of what to expect. I’m also curious regarding the performance splits—how much more of a raise can a top performer expect than an average performer? Thanks!
Thoughts on this: Laying edges is steeped in white supremacy culture and the erasure of natural Black hair.

Advice for someone looking to transition into Human Capital consulting? I have almost 6 YOE in talent. Would going back for Masters be the best course of action? I’ve been looking at organizational development and MBA with HR concentration. I have SHRM cert if that counts for anything. I’m really interested in people analytics and change management. Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
The disappointment of having to decline a BCG interview because you know timing’s not going to work out. Next time... But the recruiting team is one of the friendliest encountered thus far.
Serious question: I’ve worked in MBB, Big 4 and tier 2, and the number one reason I’ve heard for younger (less than 5 YoE) talent leaving is that they are “not doing strategy work.” It’s also the top request from younger staffers to do on every engagement team I’ve led. The question: Are there any consulting firms really letting new talent do this? Or is this the top delusion of new MBAs entering the consulting world?

Ever since we had our first child, I have come to realize that I’ve been in an abusive relationship. She verbally abuses me and there were also times where I was physically hurt. Her reactions and emotions are so extreme, she estranged me several times and for several months for the smallest disagreements. I’m thinking to file for a divorce but really feel like giving it sometime to heal over the damage first and then figure out the logistics.
How do you respond when someone asks your salary? Give me both- where you tell a number and where you don't. Also if I'm giving out a number (obviously to a close one), should I say my package(including stocks)? or my in hand salary before tax? or in hand salary after tax?
