I got a phone call from a firm I turned down 2 years ago, just wondering if I would be interested again. Only turned them down due to distance from home, but they are fully remote now, would need to come in every once in a while for client things. Crazy to even consider it? Move from BDO to a regional firm. Owner and staff was great, he said, name your price. Need some insight, thanks!
Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?

Been late to client site every morning by more than 30 min since the beginning. This doesn't really matter since I'm usually the last one out the door 12 hours later right?
Should I switch b4 firms for a 15% pay bump?
Honest question here-hw do I work better with Indians who come over frm India(on-site) to client?My patience with them is at an all time low since they jst dnt gt the methodology & hate owning anythng
I have 6+ years of work experience working as an Ops Manager in a 3pl company doing last mile deliveries. Highest level of education is MS Supply chain management from UMD. I have been thinking about making a career switch and go into consulting. What are my chances of getting calls from MBB? Or big 4? Or are there any other firms who focus mainly on Supply chain and logistics consulting? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company Deloitte EY PwC Kearney
Best luggage for travel? Just got consulting job at MBB and looking to buy some new stuff.
Does turning down a Big 4 job offer, due to bad timing, hinder chances if I reapply there in a few years?
Just took a shot and applied to MBB online. Anybody know how long it generally takes for them to get back? It’s been 2 weeks and it’s my first application since UG, not sure how long I should wait.
What are the consulting firms outside of MBB that do private equity work and have a strong record of lateral recruiting into MBB?
Will getting 2 years of experience as a strategy & ops manager in financial services pigeon hole me in that industry. Not in love with the space but think it could compliment 2 years at MBB quite well. Not too eager to stay in consulting and get promoted
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
Anyone at a T2 or MBB willing to look over my resume? Currently have 2 YOE in gov consulting and am trying to move over to commercial, but am not able to get interviews even with solid work experience + education. Would love any feedback — TIA!
Anyone know anyone or have any experience working for Gallagher? Curious if anyone else has worked on any internal strategy consulting teams before and how it defers from external client facing that comes with typical consulting
Debating between a role in transaction advisory at Big 4 vs back office accounting at a well known PE firm. Audit is not for me (not the hours or firm but work) so worried about the BO role - I have always wanted to work on deals but worried about the exit ops. Any advice is greatly appreciated, don’t have many friends in the industry and feel like the advice I have gotten has been extremely bias
I feel like I should leave my boutique strategy consulting firm, but no one will match my pay. 4 yoe. I feel like an MBA should be next, but then I would have to take a $100k pay cut at mbb or any company after paying $$$ in tuition and $$$$$ in lost income. Has anyone ever dealt with golden handcuffs?
Friend of mine was supposed to receive an offer (told verbally) from Deloitte and then just found out they are pausing on hiring the role. How common is that? Seems wildly unprofessional that none of the partners called and instead it was the recruiter conveying that news. At McKinsey, if that happened, the head of the practice or the office would personally make the phone call at the very least.
What’s the expected base salary for an incoming senior consultant at Deloitte with 4+ years experience at another consulting firm?
I currently work for a mid market firm (regionally known, ranked between top 30 and 50). I am doing well and very well liked here. It’s a great fit culturally and I rarely work more than 45 hours a week doing FDD and my total comp is 115K this year. The last transaction I worked on closed for $380M so I do get to see deals of larger sizes. I’ve only been here about a year. I got an opportunity to leave to an investment banking role. Should I take it?
Recently applied to LEK Associate position. I noticed that my application is changed to Associate- February '22 (lateral) without any notification. Are there any actions that I need to take at this point? Wanted to make sure I'm considered for the right position.
Month 5 of 20/4 intermittent fasting. Down 25 pounds to ~170 lbs (stabilized there) M/53. WFH was hard but keeping fridge and cupboards from temptations (and still no booze for three months) has helped. It can be done--miss ice cream! but eating healthy in the 4-hour window. Two cups of black coffee/lots of water btw 9 pm and 5 pm. Doable folks. Don't give up. But am not exercising from home (just long walks 2x a week) due to intense work. Need to but hard to get back on exercise saddle.
applied for passport renewal at SFO consulate. VFS guys said you filled in wrong and we are sending the application back, and to refile again correctly. Got email saying it has been dispatched. However, I haven’t received the passport back till now. It’s been 10 days. I have tried following up through multiple channels. No response till now. I need to travel to india next week. any suggestions on how I can get it resolved? Their customer care phone line is charging 2.5$/min and are of no help!
Hello cyber team! Can anyone help suggesting sys integrator/implementation firms that are focussed primarily on cloud and devsecops? Also do they match big 4 salaries to some extent? Tia!

6am flight, mother trying to breast feeding her screaming child in the seat next to me before take off. Attendant approaches me, "sir, we have a seat open for you in 1D." 💸💎🍾🍻🍸😁👏🙌🏻👏🙌🏻👏💥
I love working in the big 4. Forget the hours and focus on the amazing opportunity. I wasn't born in anything close to middle class. I will never take this opportunity for granted.
Update: LGA term C precheck longer than usual, probably double the standard 5-7 min wait
I am an interdisciplinary studies major concentrating on organizational leadership and sociology. I have 17 years of management experience already and I'm not young. I will need an internship this summer, but I tend not to get calls on my applications. I'm nervous because I will need the internship to graduate, and it needs to fulfill expectations of both OGL AND SOC. Human resources, DEI, talent development or acquisition, ethics, all would be great (I think). Best places to look? Thank you!

Does Big4 truly lead to better exit opps at the manager level than the next 5 or 6 ‘mid tier’ firms?
For those who had COVID and lost your sense of taste, did you lose it completely or were the flavors just less strong?
What’s the longest doc review project you’ve been on and how the hell did you maintain your sanity?
I haven’t taken any vacation (other than one day here and there) all year. I’m taking two weeks off at the end of November and just told a partner and he was shocked (presumably at the length). Is this a faux pas?
7.5 weeks pregnant with my third and on the beach - never have I been more thankful for being unstaffed. The tiredness is legit so all encompassing this time around. 😴
