Hi everyone, does anyone have any advice for someone who has been in the agency project management /production space for a couple years now but may be looking to transition into a more in-house brand management / client side role? (I think it’s time for me to be the boss now! Tired of the agency burn out)
I want to exit to MBB but if that’s not a possibility what are the next best consulting firms? Looking for at least midsize firms (non-boutiques).

Why do so many people in FDD hype up FP&A exit opportunities? It seems like: 1) most of those opportunities would’ve been available for high performers coming out of audit; 2) financial reporting managers (and higher) make the same, if not more, than people in FP&A; 3) FP&A is not “FIH-nance” - it’s glorified accounting that is somewhat forward-looking but ultimately isn’t that much more interesting than debits and credits. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
I’ve been asked to interview an engineer for a role at my company. They’ve already had an interview with the hiring manager so what questions should I be asking? I’ve never interviewed an engineer before

Does anybody do a “work uniform” in the office? I’m new in an in-house role at a company that has dress for your day (primarily jeans), and I’m thinking about doing that when we go back (1-2 days a week). I need to buy new clothes post-covid anyways. I’m thinking some casual, but quality, plain black dresses that I can wear a sweater, jacket, blazer (when necessary), shirt, etc. over. Could dress up or down with shoes. Thoughts?
