How many people are suddenly managing an intern they didn’t ask for because project leadership requested one without any idea or scope of what they’d actually do? 🙋🏼♀️
Got an offer doing cloud implementations. 72 with 10% performance bonus and 5k sign on. Would be a parallel move. 2 YOE being a junior project manager of data center relocations. Good move or no?
I know this is a story that repeats in this bowl but I’ve finally reached my end with this industry. While the pay is great, I’ve grown to dread work. I understand that client side isn’t utopia but where else does a “seasoned” ad person end up?
Can anyone @deloitte give feedback/advice in the below offer: Deloitte Digital Senior Consultant Chicago Client Strategy Group 140k base, 10k sign on Currently have 3yoe In-line or should I counter higher?
In case H1B gets denied (I hope that doesn’t happen), what countries have you considered moving to besides Canada. Indian national and pending transfer to MBB if that helps.
Is strategy consulting really that great or is implementation the place to be? I know MBB is trying to move into implementation so is it useless trying to stick to strategy or should I prepare myself for the future by doing delivery?
Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.
Hi ladies! Need some advice on a project I’m on where there are two female analysts (I am one of them) and two male leads. Continued...
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
How easy is it to move from a tax client service internship into a fulltime advisory role upon graduation?
I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
Is it ok to bill the time that the shareholder explains the project to me? If so, how do you describe when billing?
I’m about to turn down an in house position at a client (I actively applied for the position). Any tips on specific language I should include in my email rejecting it? I don’t actually work with the client on any matters - it’s just a firm client so not sure if this even matters?
How competitive is the mbb and tier 2 consulting industry. Any tips on how to best survive and succeed vs other smart peers?
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
Fishbowl friends! What's the best way to network to get on a new project when I just switched to a new division and don't know many people?
For those back in office are y’all just wearing masks indoors and is it affecting the way you work? I’m pro-vaccine and masks indoors when crowded. But can’t help think it being uncomfortable having the mask on working 8+ hours and taking client calls when you could have it off working at home 🏠
8 months till I graduate with a Masters degree focusing on Finance. Anyone willing to refer me for an Analyst role at any of the IBs/VC firms or Finance Consulting role at Big 4/MBB preferably in NYC? International Student here. Thank You.
How does disclosing our disability status in job apps impact our chances of getting interviewed?
I’ll be having a convo next with where I tell my manager I got another offer, how do I ask for a counter offer without demanding one? All the things I’m looking for (WFH, title change) are things I’ve been asking for. For example,I’ve been doing the EP role for a year without the promotion.
New to implementations but got stuck managing/doing configurations. I’m not the PM but I deal with engineers and client face almost every. Best book for this type of role besides the Phoenix project?
Since we're all talking money, I just got my first raise ever and I'm feeling stoked. 🤗 My loans may still have me broke as a joke, but at least I'm feeling valued! ☀️
I am on track to FI/RE in 9 years at age 42. But I am burnt out. Considering stepping away for 6 months to a year to do something cool, but don't want to fuck up fi/re. Help me see the forest through the trees? I've been a delayed gratification kind of person my whole life. Sick of waiting.

Did anyone recently get Dropbox eligibility/interview waiver in India? I'm getting the waiver which I didn't expect because my last stamping was not in India. Does anyone know if they removed this rule? It wasn't even asked in the questionnaire leading to the waiver message.

Deciding on a stroller as a FTM. Read a lot of the comments in this thread. I’ll be having a winter baby in a very snowy place and won’t be doing walking outside until baby is maybe 5 months. I’m not sure I’d need a bassinet. What stroller would you recommend? If Uppababy, is it still worth it even though the Bassinet isn’t really going to be used?
