Yes, it provides much more of a work life balance. I definitely recommend as an exit option

What do consultants usually exit to? Corp Dev? Marketing? Aren’t CPGs usually organized in a way where marketing/brand holds all the P&L, and doesn’t that mean most don’t have a Corp strat team?

Hi ladies! I remember seeing a post on this subject a few months ago, but now can’t find it. Do you have recommendations on hairstylists in L.A., for simple wash and roller set, good trim + occasional relaxer maintenance? I might be moving out there sooner than I thought and trying to do all my research ahead of time. :)

Mindtree HR called me when I was in a meeting in my office laptop, I cut the call while ringing, replied with text message "will call you back", she replied "ok", sent me an email asking for 3 months payslips, PAN card, etc. I called her after 30 mins, but she is cutting my call twice and didn't call back. I am not having good feelings about this, shall I look for other companies? Or is this the natural for service company HRs to behave ?

Is there an average % of my salary I should be investing per month/year? Currently max out my 401k, Roth and HSA. Contribute $700/month to investment portfolio and ~3k a month towards a future down payment (expecting that 3k to transition to my monthly mortgage payment once I find a home). There’s usually about ~1k left over that I balance between savings and portfolio but didn’t know if there was one I should allocate more to? Will need to do backdoor Roth next year so can contribute more there

I'm seeking a corporate communications role in London, after over 10 years in conferences and at the senior level (event director) in London and Asia. I believe I am well familiar with business operations and strategy but not so much for non-event marketing channels. May I get some advice on if I should simply apply for such roles at a junior level, or would you recommend certain courses/training that could bridge the skill gap? Thank you!
