Hi Fishes , Any program/project managers here ? What do you think is the future of technical program management in India ? Is it for mba grads who are comfortable with technology Or should only pure techies get into it ?
My ~60 person group at my firm has only 5 women in it. Is there any excuse at all for this? Every project I’m on feels like the old boys club

Ideas for client gifts this year? Typically has been a nice bottle of wine, but only to the clients I had previously shared drinks with so I knew they were wine drinkers.
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve. Possibly also impacted by burnout because I performed well on other engagements and enjoyed my teams more. Just not sure where to go from here to get where I need to be.
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds

Hey Fish, I have a question. The past week I have shortness of breath. Did tests and everything seems to be fine with my lungs and heart. Idk if it has to do with anxiety, doctors said it's a possibility. I always think a lot to myself but I never feel overly stressed about anything. Idk what to do or know what it is. Anyone ever dealt with anxiety? Can you tell me how it feels and if you had to ask for medical help? I just want to feel like my normal self again, I've been crying because of this
Which firms have the best maternity/paternity packages? Do any cover some of the cost of surrogacy? I have a medical condition that would make actually carrying a child dangerous, so wondering if some firms offer help in that area (I’ve heard of some covering IVF costs).
We recently had a child and now looking to do some recurring investment to secure his future (higher education, marriage, medical etc), looking to withdraw 15-17 years down the lane. What type of investments do you suggest which are good from long term perspective for kids ? Or investment for higher education fund!?
If I’ve been asked to take a drug screen after I’ve already been confirmed and have used Marijuana in the last several days, will the client even care if it’s just some pot?

Have an interview with VMYL&R for Creative Director. Any tips on what I should ask or can anyone give their experiences working with the company?
I don’t own a car as I don’t need it on a daily basis and where I leave there is not a big need for it. I normally rent a car 2-4 days a month on the weekends which is much cheaper. My credit cards provide me with insurance for damage on the car but not for liability, I was thinking that getting a non-owners insurance would be better/cheaper than pay one at the rental Company every time. Any advice on this? Is it worth it? Any non-owner insurance recommendations? Thanks!!

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.
Hey ACN fish. How hard is the promotion from Senior Analyst to Consultant? I'm trying to compare it to the EY promotion from Staff to Senior.
