Anyone here who works at Venable? In IP Department ideally. Looking for your thoughts about firm culture generally, work life-balance, how the atmosphere is for women, how the working relationships between staff and attorneys seems, how turnover is these days, etc. Am considering applying for a position there that would remote working and I think would be a job that does work for all of the offices that have IP groups (which may be all of them?)
Got an interview for Cisco Product Manager role. Anyone have any experience with their culture, compensation and WLB?
Would working for a small firm limit exit opps? Slalom sounds sexy, better pay and no travel, but dong small scale work doesn't sound like a resume boost. Thoughts?
Has anyone succeeded in securing a role in another country that would be open to connecting? How do you frame to recruiters a career gap to relocate?
If you were looking to exit Big 4 Consulting, what positions would you be targeting? I have done a little of everything with no specialization (great performance reviews across the board). But now a little unsure of what my skills really are from an employer POV.
Client trusts me. Confided in me that they are planning to shitcan the person I interface with weekly/daily. I feel for the soon-to-be unemployed...then again, they won't make life hell for me anymore

Warning: inc humble brag Just received an offer for an exit against all the odds from the beginning. During HR screening, recruiter said HM and VP are not interested in hiring a consultant for the role. But they are willing to talk about it because of my experience in the area. (Cont.)
I had an interview with a firm today and they asked about my billable hours and whether I met them. I said no, but that other associates in my very small group have the same issue, and that we all have around the same number of hours. As the hiring firm, would you be satisfied or concerned with this answer?

I’ve gotten an RFE sheet request for my H1-B petition. Does this hamper my chances of getting the visa ? Because my degree is directly related to my role and is also clearly mentioned in the job description. So I’m not sure why I’ve gotten this. Anyone have experience with the same ?
Security guard at client site reception, dictating a text message: "working like a runaway slave." Later, to me: "have you ever worked liked that, sir?" 😨

Any openings in pharma/ life sciences consulting? B.Pharm grad + MBA (new IIM) with 2.5 years of prior work ex in pharma R&D (Drug safety/pharmacovigilance). Currently working as a SAP consultant in Deloitte.
Partners (at Deloitte at least), are you all trained to refer to everyone as “good people” when speaking to them? I find it a bit disingenuous when Partners who I just met tell me I’m “good people”, “do great work”. I just scheduled a first networking call with you, or got pulled in to your project 2 seconds ago. I know you barely know me 😆

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Best consulting firms in Houston for Healthcare?
Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
Can’t help but feel invisible in my current situation- I’ve been pursuing a transfer for over a year (within my same group) and even though I’ve repeatedly asked for help and pulled in directors and partners —I keep getting pawned off to different people. This has cost me a promotion this year although I’m a high performer and my pay is at the high end of my bracket. Meanwhile, white colleagues are getting promoted each year (unheard of). I am told that i’m getting paid well so to be ‘happy’

How to best utilize your time when you’re on the bench? I have started some online learning, getting ready for CFA, exercising, cooking, reading books, but I still feel that I have plenty of unused time. And the routines are killing me too.
