Anyone here working in the construction industry, general contractor? I’m looking to relocate here and Would love to connect for some guidance on job search.
Read lots of problems, few solutions. Suggestions include allying with others (but interests don’t align) or rising to high places (but that hasn’t worked for blacks). Is the system beyond repair?
Anyone work at @ServiceNow? How do you like it? Anyone willing to refer to sales? Thanks!
Ladies, ready for a WTF moment? My psychotic ex fiancé is on my client team. WTF. We broke up 6 yrs ago. Bad break up. Had to block him on everything. Heard he moved away but never spoke to him again

I have been in the pharma industry for 2 years and I have 2.5 years of undergrad research in microfluidics and nanofabrication for cancer cell identification. I am starting to apply to university for my master’s in biotechnology and I am looking to go abroad to Europe (mostly looking at Switzerland) and was wondering if anyone had any advice on presenting myself as a high-level candidate to research professors and the program in general?
Accepted an insanely good offer at a v20 but will need to leave my bottom v100 where I’ve become comfortable and well known by over 20 partners. Partnership was on the table at the v100 but I just could not turn down the v20 offer. How do I break this to the v100?

Specialize in program management, tech / data strategy … 18 YOE in industry (first 10y in engineering, next 8y specifically in consulting)
I feel as if I was being underpaid at my last gig and just got an initial offer that’s in the same ballpark for base, questioning if my expectations are off here.

Pros/cons of becoming a partner at a private vs public firm, in terms of $, growth, influence/autonomy, politics, etc.
I really enjoy consulting, I have a Top 5 MBA. I see how people kill themselves to make partner and then stay partner, and I don’t know if I have the energy or the drive to do it. What’s in my future?
I’m leaving a firm partnership to start a firm with two other people. I haven’t worked with them but they’re highly recommended. I’m the only one with sales exp. How should we navigate equity/comp?
Partners who were highly technical in their past. Were there any skills, thought processes or behaviours you had to gain or lose to get to where you are today?
Perhaps an odd question, but I've recently moved into a technical career track. I perform well and have a great career sponsor who has asked me to think bigger about my career goals. I've noticed my social skills and way of thinking are shifting towards stereotypical Engineer. Less social, less big picture thinking.

Partners of Fishbowl. What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you’re evaluating people for promotions?
Partners, how do you take the guess work out of YoY sales + revenue growth to the firm? How do you drive a book of business consistently? What keeps you sharp? How do you elevate yourself to C-Suite?
Just got promoted, still not satisfied with the comps - will it be received poorly if I ask for my compensation to be readjusted based on competing offers ? I have 3 that are at least 30% higher...CNT
How did those of you who were deferred for partnership deal with it? Feels like a punch to the gut and I don’t agree with the reasoning I was given. Makes me want to leave PA for good, but trying not to make an emotional decision.
Big4 and Mid tier- All partners have a vesting period and if you leave before that 10 year mark , you dont get those retirement benefits correct? I noted some firms actively push out partners nearing that 10 year period. I have seen it happen. Is that a normal practice to shake out some dead weight so to speak before they reach that 10 year mark? Seems cut throat but is that part of the business now?
Partners - what advice do you have for competing project requests from senior leadership? I have 3 PPDs asking me to join them for my next gig and they refuse to hash it out between them.
Ok, Partners. How many of you actually see travel requirements changing when we get out of this pandemic? Single guy here and I want a dog!
Has anyone seen someone make the jump from m&a tax to a strategy role? Already have a (non-target) mba, so going back to school to help with the jump isn’t on the table. Just trying to test the waters to see if this is plausible

At some Big 4 companies there is a Partner / Principal group that has equity and are part owners of the business and an equivalent Managing Director group that does not have equity and are essentially employees.
How does it work at McKinsey / Bain ? Do those same distinctions exist across partner types, owner vs non owner?
