If I want to exit to VC in a year or so, what are some of the things I can do right now to start preparing? Have 5 YOE at MBB across 2 countries and Tier 1 MBA
Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).
I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.
Has anyone ever exited Technology/Digital type consulting roles into something more business / commercially oriented? If so, how did you go about it and what sort of roles were open to you? I fell into Tech and it has never really been of huge interest to me. My background is 10 years experience at IBM > EY-Parthenon > AlixPartners with an MBA in between.
Best examples of ramp back programs from parental leave? I get to choose my own adventure and am curious what’s worked well for others. Minimum hours required hasn’t been stipulated. Thanks!
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.
I’m tired. I love wfh. But balancing it with cooking, cleaning, teacher, parent, caretaker - I’m drained. I want to sleep and wake up when it’s all over

Partner appreciation post: I gave birth a few days ago and was feeling pretty ill yesterday (our first full day home from the hospital). Daddy took complete care of the baby and me, even helping me in and out of bed, feeding me, and helping me pull my maternity underwear up and down in the bathroom. He’s a rockstar!!
I’m starting my 2nd trimester and want to tell work I’m pregnant next month, but I’m concerned that I won’t get staffed on matters and then have little work to return to. Is there a good balance?
Wish I were a baby right now. I'm tired and hungry and it would be so nice to take a nap and then cry until someone feeds me.
Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…
End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
Flew for the first time today. Woman next to me took her mask off immediately upon sitting down and starting chatting loudly with her son. I asked her politely if she could keep her mask on and she proceeded to spend the rest of the flight fake sneezing and laughing giving me the side eye to see my reaction. What an inspirational mother.

Would you ever let your firm/company know that you are looking to leave before you give your two weeks notice? Here’s my conundrum, I have a great relationship with my boss, company, and upper management. I’m planning to switch jobs so I can relocate closer to family. I have some interviews coming up, and already have an offer in hand, so leaving is a foregone conclusion. My boss is going to be blindsided when I tell them I’m leaving - I can’t overstate how great our relationship is. Thoughts?
How seriously does Deloitte act on the HR complaint made against a SM who is extremely rude, abrasive, disrespectful to all his team members. Your inputs/experiences are highly appreciated. Deloitte
Got to final round at McKinsey in January this year, didn't get an offer but got added to the Keep in Touch list, and the recruiter said I got good feedback but to wait a year before applying again. I started at Deloitte in October; if I decide to go for McKinsey again, is it weird to reach out again in January next year (having only worked for a few months at my current job), or should I go for it?

On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Career progression for PM roles in Tech? I’m on track to be qualified for a Program Manager, Talent/HR/OD position at a tech firm in the next couple years. I understand the pay is solid ($130k+ salary depending on exp. and location) but I’m curious about career progression. Does anyone have experience as a Program Manager, Talent/HR/OD at a competitive tech firm, and with exit opps afterwards? Are we talking Sr Mgr, Director, or VP level positions in industry?
I’m going to Las Vegas during memorial weekend. Staying at Caesars Palace with 3 other guys all in our 20s. Any recommendations or things we must do/eat? Thanks!
Lessons learned this week in travel: have a toiletries bag you leave in your rental car or at the client site to avoid using hotel soaps or having the TSA confiscate your oversized bottles.
Got to the final round interview for roles at Google and LinkedIn but failed both. Anyone else struggling to get past final rounds due to the fact that consulting analysts are pretty much generalists and not specialized in anything? :/
