Hi energy fish, I’m currently in the process of breaking into the energy industry. My education is in energy engineering but I got sidetracked. Now, what is better as a pivot point for later exits and continued career path in energy: A) joining Guidehouse in the energy team or B) joining a T2 in the energy team or C) joining MBB as a generalist but network my way into energy work? TIA ❤️

Late reply, but in my experience I’d strongly recommend taking a T2 or MBB track. Guidehouse’s brand in energy is nothing compared to Navigant’s and the internal environment is chaotic due to extremely high turnover. Further, the vast majority of work is in the utility and government programs space (vs. strategy, corporate procurement, etc.), so if that’s not your cup of tea it may not be a fit. The exits are definitely nice, but I imagine you can find similar or better exit options in energy through paths B or C.

Happy to talk more, but best of luck on whatever path you choose!

Happy to chat, I have represented professionals from all mentioned businesses.
Could Evan throw in a few other potential businesses to consider

If you are passionate about energy, you should join Guidehouse. You’ll be put on projects that are very relevant and innovative and still work with big clients. You don’t know how long youd have to network your way at MBB. I think the learning is unmatched and there are great people.

Hi Moms, any tips tricks to have 5 year old log on to Zoom classes at least somewhat independently? I am trying to setup daily reminders on her school iPad with the Zoom links to click on when it’s time for class but would appreciate more ideas (apps, techniques, etc.). I have ADHD and logging her on to 10:35, 10:50 etc in the middle of a work meeting is very difficult for me to remember throughout the day with work related stuff

Applied for a role I was finally excited about/actually wanted. Worked my ass off on the application, would’ve been a great fit based on the description. Then got a response about how the role has shifted. The new role sounds like a lateral move now, and a lower position, guess it’s back to the drawing board. Hard to stay motivated the more this happens.

Does it sometimes feel like you're the only person working in your team? I've come to realize with remote work that some of my coworkers are literally BSing on a daily basis to commit the minimal amount of time to work, and they are getting away with it! Why management hasn't cracked down on the BSers is baffling. I want to make more money as an engineer and I am pasionate about my job, so I put in a lot of work, but I'm carrying the weight and delivering 5x more than equally paid coworkers!
