Can anyone provide insight on the internal audit/risk advisory services at the big 4 firms?

I don’t know if this has been asked and answered in the past. I’m having a small crisis of career and have decided that instead of waffling between administrative and project work, I’d like to become an “elevated executive assistant” wherein I provide a strategic partnership with my exec instead of mainly a tactical one. Any advice on how to step into this role?

I need career advice. I jumped into pharma from consumer at the beginning of covid, right after I was promoted to a mid-level copy role. My current team is a disaster (crazy hours, lots of incompetence, nightmare client). I was recently offered a senior level position at another pharma agency, but I miss consumer and ultimately want to get back to it. Is it dumb to turn down this job given that I'm so unhappy where I am? Should I stay where I am and keep looking for consumer roles?

I have talked with the partner and senior manager live that I can’t make it to calls after 9:30pm but every now and then (almost every alternate day) they schedule some client meetings for past my availability. I think they will understand if I can’t make it but wanted to just gather suggestions as what what can be a polite way to decline such meetings.

Your new favorite copywriter,
How long does the freelance to full-time conversion usually take if it happens? Mind sharing some personal experiences?
No, I don’t want to “jam” with you on this. Can’t think of anything that I’d want to do any less.
