Not crashing anymore.
My company is now displaying!
Hot take: consultants at MBB have big egos and seem to promote the idea that they're the "best of the best" not realizing that, in 2021, the "best of the best" works in "tech" typically as engineers and consultants are actually just overworked also rans with oversized egos.
Can someone explain this sense of entitlement by the younger generation? When I hear the younger gen complaining that they aren't getting paid enough when they start at 70k which is more than some experienced hires.....I just don't understand.
Wow. This morning on a quarterly regional all hands an Accenture Managing Director (and leader) had the group stop for a full minute for thoughts and prayers for the president in the first lady in the wake of their coronavirus diagnosis. Not sharing my feelings... Just leaving this there.
It seems morally wrong that consultants are paid more the PhD biochemists, physicists, engineers and social workers. Why is compensation so disconnected from actual value creation in our society?
Person on LinkedIn reached out claiming to be a recruiter for BCG, but it's a foreign sounding name and their messages have spelling and grammar mistakes. Should I proceed?
Six consultants meet at a bar for the first time. Deloitte says: I am Deloitted to meet you. Fill in the blanks…. McKinsey: EY, BCG, KPMG, PwC, others….
What’s one of your long term career goals?
Bravo Deloitte 🙌 Laid off a Senior and a year later, offer staff/intern position. Consulting or insulting🥴
So today after dinner at 10:00 PM my manager stops on the way to withdraw cash. I ask him what happened? He says there is a nice strip club nearby. He has a wife and 3 kids back home 😳is this normal?
Why do consultants slog to make partner $$ when running your own consultancy can yield so much more money with much less effort?
Turned 26. Which also means it's been 4 years since I finished undergrad. Buddy just finished dental school over that 4 years. Starting salary 180k. 9-5. I picked the wrong career.
This month I won a few million after taxes in the lottery. My question is do I quit or keep working so I have something to do and have health insurance? Debating working until I decide what I want to do next? If it matters - 40 in Manhattan.
What is everyone’s opinion of dress code on video calls? Has it changed at all since quarantine?
Struck out on MBB recruiting, I have never felt so defeated in my professional life. Now I question whether my MBA (M7) was even worth the investment. I am aware that this is a function of the bubble I am in, but up to now I thought I was doing relatively well professionally, apparently not 😟
Fiance’s dad is an MD and head of infectious disease, he told me this public health emergency is an overreaction. Unless you’re 80 years old or have a pre existing condition, you’re going to be fine
