Deloitte CEO just announced vaccine mandates
👶🏻 🐠 here, What mistakes/pitfalls have you made in your career that you wish had been avoided? What should a new generation of consultants look out for?
Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
How to react when an MD asks the only woman in the meeting (me) to ping someone to ask if that person is still joining the meeting? He could have done it himself...
I just accepted an offer at another big4 and I feel so blessed to be making $130k in LOCL as a 23 year old with less than 1.25 YOE. And I find it funny that I'm gonna be "senior" consultant/associate at my age and YOE. I don't know jack shit, and will completely understand if my clients/senior peers don't give me any respect at all. Thank you covid and the great resignation for this wonderous and hilarious opportunity.
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Laid off from Deloitte and looking for a job? Post your role and practice here so people can reach out in this app if they’re hiring folks like you.
Is it ok to get personal in salary negotiations? For example, let the recruiter know that I’m a single parent supporting three young kids and two retired parents and I really need more money.
Trying to assess if an mba is worth it (25 year old male). I am a VP making $200 K in pharma transaction advisory considering moving to IB. Worth the two year hold on my career and $400 K in lost salary? It’s terrifying to go back into debt...
Bravo Deloitte 🙌 Laid off a Senior and a year later, offer staff/intern position. Consulting or insulting🥴
My friends little sister is graduating undergrad and has an offer from Strategy& for $100k and McKinsey for $90k (pretty sure McK is going to bump soon). Im obviously biased to McK but want to show her other perspectives. Which one should she choose and why?? And and all feedback is welcomed!
Where were the anti war people when US invaded Iraq (No Weapons were found) and Afghanistan (eventually left Afghanistan in a limbo) Azerbaijan and Armenia fought. Pakistan attacked India etc etc ..list of wars go on. US list of war mistakes are #1. Note: I am not supporting this war PS: I am anti war and I don't support Russia. I am against Putin and want Peace Does a white country attack get more visibility? Or this was a boredom of Covid lockdowns ? What is the role of UN etc?
Thoughts on this?
Just interviewed a potential resource (level 9 consultant) for a role on my project. Client was present and noticed the person was very likely being coached during the interview. My Sr Mgr and I...
Just got an offer from McK for Associate position. Told my dad and now he says he’s not paying for my MBA since I landed this without it. Can’t believe he’s doing this. Sure, he paid for my UPenn undergrad, but MBA isn’t that much more 🙄
Pwc fishes, care to comment?
Should I take a year off work to travel? Why or why not? If you’ve done something similar, could you share your experience? Any regrets? Any advice?
What's your biggest career regret?

Anyone have advice on transitioning from consulting to non-profit / public service kind of work? Looking to change jobs to “make a difference” but not sure where to start
That moment of silence after your date asks you if you travel much and you haven't told her what you do...
Why do people hate federal?
When you just friended your SM on Xbox and you can't decide if that's a good or bad thing for your work-life; but all you can think about is how you're going to kick his ass in Call of Duty.
Doing some research on the Ad Tech space in New York. For starters need to know some of the top players... thoughts?
I like to imagine that all my fellow colleagues I know are on here too secretly posting about and to one another
Badly explain your profession
Staying at the Ritz. Adorn that luxurious AF robe. 5 minutes later. Put my hand in the pocket...used condom. Thanks Monday 🤢🚿🚿🚿
When you're leaving the bar really late Saturday night and get an email from delta saying it's time to check in 😖
Actual, genuine advice requested - no trolls please. Client is insisting coming back to my hotel room. I want to keep things professional and have a gf. After a drunken dinner: advice please?
When you get a meeting request at 3 am for a 6 am call and mgr gets pissed when you don't join. Lol what....
