Is it possible for mid management levels to move from Media to Creative/ Integrated shops or vice versa? Has anyone done this and if so what was it like?


I am seriously struggling with the amount of emphasis being placed on the education of racism from a firm perspective. It’s simple treat people as people. I have received so many emails about racism awareness and how to treat black people. As a black consultant I don’t want to think about the racism that I’ve experienced my entire life because it’s now a topic other unaffected races want to discuss. I will never understand why other races need to read a book or watch a movie to treat us right.

[22 M] Hi Everyone - starting a job in May in Boston as an associate tech consultant at a boutique technology consulting firm. I’m originally from Philadelphia, but worked in Boston last summer for an internship so I know the area well. I’ll be going back and forth from Boston to Philadelphia, saving money as I have the opportunity to stay at my SO’s University apt. to save money. Planning to find my own place once I get my feet under me. Any tips on how to find a roommate? Places to live?

Hey everyone, I'm sure this topic has been discussed here to death. It's a sore point for me. Why is there such a big pay difference between the UK and US markets. Big 4 manager here earning mid £60k. I know colleagues in the US earning north of $150k. Is it purely driven by the demand for consulting services (more of a pull in the US whereas a push here in the UK)?

Hi all, not sure if this is the right forum to ask. I had a roof inspection and the gentleman stated that he believes it’s time to replace the entire roof. These are pictures from various parts of the roof. This is my first home and winter was a bit brutal on it. I have the option of paying him 8k (local man, known well in the Latino community) or going through the insurance with a 1k deductible. Any suggestions which route I should take based on the pictures?


Will I see a huge change in my take home pay if I go from 80k pre tax to 115k pre tax in nyc?


Best way to develop your leadership skills for the healthcare field? Or books/resources you would recommend?


Looking for advice. When I signed with my agency they offered me 5k to move but noted I would have to pay back if I resigned within 18 months. I’m currently at 16 months but just got an incredible offer. How strict is this payback policy? Note: one of the reasons I want to leave is a male peer is making 40% more than me

Do you cut your hours?? So many people say they work last midnight all the time. If thats true, they would be clocking 3000 a year easily, that’s just 10 hours a day for 300 days... but of course very very very few people ever reach 300
