Hasn't been my year, praying that this project consumes my life for a phew months while I get out of this rut
Joined consulting to get varied experience, but I keep getting extended at client but on different projects. Client is great and projects are cool, but I’d never wanna live on this coast—
Has anyone else found HR timelines to be a crawl during all of this year? Top 5 bank or smaller bank, it’s totally glacial pace, it doesn’t matter. I try to normally be engaged and quick with stuff client side or internal stuff but it truly blows my mind how slow HR is on things. Like if I was to be this slow client side, I’d be fired. Does anyone have similar experiences over the past year?
Do adcoms negatively view short company stints? Are you allowed to leave them off your resume/application? Example: 5 YOE at application Company 1 (0.2 years) - left for +30% TC Company 2 (2.5 years) - left for promo & + 50% TC Company 3 (0.5 years) - left due to toxic culture Company 4 (1.8 years) - Current
Hello Slalom Canada folks, Anyone willing to chat about Slalom's company culture and its niche/specialty here in Canada?
What kind of hours are you putting in on your current project? What's the industry? (E.g. Tech, in at 7:30AM, leave at 7PM, back online at 10PM)
Professionals that moved / transferred to NYC (let’s pretend normal times), is the work culture as intense as it seems? How is it compared to where you moved from?
Scope increased numerous times during the engagement because the client can't do their own goddamn work
Fishbowl makes me appreciate my client and work more because most others here seems so miserable.
Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree

Best advice for negotiating the salary you want — when you’re hoping for 10K or a 10-15% jump from your last salary? Interviewing at a smaller shop but they have lots of business. Thanks for the advice! First timer with negotiations.

Currently Staff 2 with MSF and MBA and one year prior industry experience, see a juicy consultant position at D that directly matches my skill set , chances?
need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
