In your experience: if the agency CCO is a writer vs. art director (or vice versa), how does that affect the culture and output of the agency?
Copying a similar post... can anyone speak to what the culture and busy season are like in London for FS? I’m considering a rotation and wondering if it’s worth it.
So I have been going through multiple rounds of interviews - I’m 4 weeks into the process and I have already gotten 4 rejections. Here’s what I have learnt (sharing in case it’s helpful) ..
My wife’s parents want me to buy them an expensive apartment in India. I live in the US, and wife is a home maker. They do not have a big chunk for retirement so I send them some cash every six months (like I send to my parents). I buy their plane tickets to US, help with additional purchases (like TV, cell phone). They want me to sell my apartment in India which I bought before marriage. But I want to start saving for my own kids. Dont have a home in US, how do I say no? Wife is really angry..
Between this, kpop artists feeling pressure to alter lyrics to not say “I” in Korean (naega) bc it sounds like the n word, and buddhists/hindus being unable to use the swastika symbol in the way it was originally intended bc people don’t understand the origins of the symbol and that hitler stole it, I’m so tired of having to alter and apologize for asian culture that is misunderstood and deemed not politically correct through a western lens https://reason.com/2020/09/03/usc-greg-patton-chinese-word-offended-students/
Hi fishes, I have 6 yoe experience in backend ,3 months back I joined a company for 30 LPA, but culture here is very toxic and work is also not good. now I wanted to switch but recruiters upon hearing my CTC. They are not calling back.even though I'm ready to take pay cut. How to approach this situation.
Dear those of you drawing your boundaries and prioritizing rest/ balance. Keep going! Hold the line! We’re all we have! We are the only hope for changing this god awful culture of overwork, wearing mental and physical exhaustion as a badge of honor, and self-sacrifice. 🙏 we are humans before lawyers.
Any thoughts or insight on what it’s like to work at Droga5 as a Producer? What is the culture like?

Anyone know anything about PwC's culture? I just interviewed with a recruiter and they seem so tired that it brought down my mood.
Hello fishes, got an offer from KPMG Global Services, Mumbai as Consultant - SPI (within Deal Advisory). Can anyone help me know the quality of work, work culture and wlb ? Other offers I have - ZS Associates - Business Operation Associate Consultant, Mumbai. Quantiphi - Senior Business Analyst, Mumbai.
I am not looking for a fight, but I was talking about this and thought it would be a good place to poll the masses. Opinions on CRT?
Anyone have insight on Reed Smith’s SF office? (compensation, WLB, billable hour requirement, overall culture). I am considering applying for a mid-level role.
How are you all doing? Here's a thought to get some of us chatting again: In an increasingly hybrid/remote working culture, how do you educate and convince your business stakeholders to not do info overloads with emails? The risk of people not being aware is there but sending separate emails for every sub-program, webinar is annoying (as a receipent) I understand employee perspective.
Hi All... Have an interview with The Math Company Inc for a manager position. Does anyone has insights of this company and culture? What to expect? Any help is appreciated!! Thank you. TheMathCompany Inc
A lot of convo on here stems around jumping around for salary. What is something that would inspire you to stay at your firm outside of comp?
Does Deloitte offer year end bonus?
have two offers to move from consulting to industry. Currently an associate, offers for Manager & Analyst.If thinking long term about B-school, would the Manager role be significicantbetter on paper?
I’ve finished my final rounds with Deloitte and waiting to hear back on the decision, with that said does the Insurance consulting practice have as bad of a reputation for layoffs as D does in general? I do not trust this market. I have 3 YOE with Capgemini but I’m unhappy with quite a few things that D seems to be doing better at.
Why don't more partners (esp. tier 2/MBB) just retire at ~40-45? What keeps a person going at that point? I get working a job that's meaningful and and for a cause close to heart, but why work an objectively demanding job when you have multiple millions saved and a fairly high level of prestige in your field?

I want to request my fellow colleagues from PwC and Strategy&.please stop bashing our companies just because you're frustrated. There are plenty of opportunities outside of PwC. Please be professional
Why do people in our industry choose to work long hours when it isn't necessary? Completely understandable during busy times, but why choose to stay in the office through 6pm+ for no reason?
Post-Covid, I just cannot seem to find the inspiration to network at a conference such as the AWS DC summit. I initially wanted to get facetime with vendors to check out potential job openings. But it just feels like a large circle jerk where no productive work gets done. And besides all keynote addresses are recorded and available online anyway. Wondering if anyone out there feels differently or has had better experiences from these events? #aws
Who else had a drop the mic moment in meeting this week? I did...popped my collar and walked out the room to the sounds of Dr Dre Next Episode playing in he background. #jiggyconsultant
Here's an idea: utilize the bcc line when sending mass emails. Congratulatory responses should be sent to those that deserve it, not the entire distro list.

What's your most ridiculous (Seinfeld-esq) reason you stopped talking to / dating someone?
Just interviewed a potential resource (level 9 consultant) for a role on my project. Client was present and noticed the person was very likely being coached during the interview. My Sr Mgr and I...
