If you are asking from a prestige perspective, it’s not great. It’s experienced substantial growth since I’ve joined, but still very much a WIP. Below would be my breakdown of the talent within its consulting service line. 35% = generic IT PMO folks 20% = have only been exposed to governance, risk, or compliance (e.g. asc 842) 10% = change management, but only for Life Sciences (looking at you TP) 10% = former Arryve guys that are convinced they are doing pure strategy work, but are really just staff aug for the Seattle tech firms 20% = hodgepodge of ops, digital, or financial management consultants that would thrive elsewhere, but chose GT for a) culture, b) challenge/allure of building a practice, c) too much purple koolaid, d) all of the above 5% = former IBMers that are “god’s gift to earth” / a weird combination of pretentious yet underwhelming

Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team. New leadership than when I was hired

Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher.

J moved home to support my mom and sister, but I’m torn if I should help him out because he doesn’t have work. Half of me is like this is your fault for 20+ years and the other half is just like I’m the only person he got ATM
