After working 15 months on a big project, I was replaced by another creative who finished producing it. Dream client. Dream content. I was never told this was happening. The project just kept rolling on and I was not invited to the meetings. The company recently released the work and everyone is fawning over it. Much of the concept is the same, which I had a key role in. Due to Covid it was packaged differently, but still the same messaging. I’m so angry. but not sure I have the right. 😖
Any thoughts / info on Oliver Wyman Dubai? Pay (vs other Dubai firms), Culture, Hours ... Appreciated!
I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
I used to think “Go back to your home country” was an insult. Now I actually think it’s good advice. I don’t fit into the bro culture here.
In your opinion, what do you think is the most important piece of creating a positive school culture?

Has anyone heard of the company Phreesia? Any idea of it's overall work culture, wlb etc?
Starting on Monday. Transactional. Super nervous and anxious. I’m considering doing two things: 1) keep an excel spreadsheet that has assignment due dates, client names, assigning partner, etc. and 2) keeping a hand written diary of mistakes that I make on various types of legal agreements, with the intention that I will check that diary for assignments to make sure I don’t repeat mistakes. Thoughts on this? Any tips, advice? Thanks!
I find that the drinking culture is so prevalent here in New York and it feels very isolating especially as someone who doesn’t drink. What do sober people here in NYC do for fun and to socialize?
Regional model - do they actually hold you to that during staffing? My project team seems to be from all over but didn’t know if this was unique.
EY strategy folks: What is your group like in terms of the work you do, duration of a project, competency amongst peers, and pay structure? This is for FSO NYC.

Any ladies that are in similar situation or need companionship, please DM. Just trying to see what next phase of life begins. 🙏

Hypothetical: H or S (or maybe Wharton for those counter culture/fuck the patriarchy few) and why?
Expecting our first in about 6-8 weeks. Both my wife and I work at places with strong parental leave policies. We are considering staggering our leaves (I’d take a couple weeks right when the baby is born, then go back to work until her leave runs out, then go out) to save $$ on child care. Would also have a bit of family help during the first 4-6 weeks as well. Any experienced dads think this is a bad idea?
Going to San Juan, PR next weekend from Jersey for 3 days, anyone know if I’ll need to take covid tests? Also staying at La Concha, any recs would be appreciated!

Have a friend in need of remote work (kid with bad lung disease at home, doesn’t want to risk bringing COVID home). He has a bachelors and masters degree in math but no formal business experience. What are his chances getting hired in consulting, and what might be the best kind of practice for him to look at?
Reposting in this bowl since it’s a little more active and I’m desperate for input. My little sister is being raised in a less than ideal environment and has already been through some trauma before I met her/ before her mom got with my dad. Outside of opening a UTMA account for her, is there anything else I can do to ensure she has what she needs to leave as soon as she’s 18?

Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
So is CR really worth it? Trying to understand the real benefit since we all make a ton of airline and hotel points - trading off the $300 in travel credit vs $450 in fees
Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.
It's finally happened. I can feel that I have given up. The breaking point? My CD making a big deal out of having a call on Saturday at 1 pm to look over a deck that was due this morning. I rearrange my schedule. I move my kids piano lesson. I stay up until 2 the night before making sure everything is in line. He never calls. Doesn't respond to my text. I send him the deck and he doesn't respond until Sunday afternoon. Then gets pissy when I say I can't hop on the phone at that exact moment.
I graduated with my bachelor's in HRM and I'm wondering if there are any certifications or trainings I could do before I lock down on the SHRM-CP. I recently became HIPAA certified for my company and that got me thinking about what else I could do to add to my resume. Looking for good stepping stone certificates.
