I’m very into indian arts culture and myself learned classical dance forms (3), Carnatic singing, and violin, but I am interested to hear about some more arts you all might be engaging in as hobbies or passions. I really like to work with my hands to create something. Right now I’m working on a project to learn interior design using high end, business professional desi design patterns in my apt. What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?
Donald Trump is the literal representation of a clueless consultant trying to BS his way through client presentation for which he knows nothing about.
Has anyone transitioned into product management? I would love to hear your story! I have 8 years experience in project management but I don’t know how to pivot. I don’t think I want to pivot internally because I’ve heard negative things about our product management teams. I’ve been thinking about moving into project management at a SaaS company but that is proving to be hard since I have no SaaS experience. Would love to hear anyone experience on moving into product management.
Probably my first serious "I can't do this anymore" day. Micromanaged to death and feel like an excel monkey. No ownership on any part of the project, my manager presents everything to the client

I distinctly remember as an Analyst on my first project telling my PPMD and SM that I hated PPT and excel, and thought it was the stupidest thing ever that we had to align everything and storyboard. Thankfully they laughed and didn’t roll me off. Now I’m in industry corporate strategy and teaching my new analysts how to create slides and she said the same thing😬. Funny how things change, and now I realize that those consulting skills are more important as you move up in corporate America

Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
Client reached out and asked if I would be interested in joining his team last month. Said I’ll follow up in a week and didn’t. Is it ok to reach out a month later to see if the offer is still on?

Receiving an inheritance soon that is mostly stock. One of the largest holdings is down around $300k total still (my share is split with 2 others) from the March crash. My attorney says they usually recommend liquidating. But that means there’s still a big delta that could grow tax free. The stock is TFC (Truist Financial). Anyone have any thoughts / recommendations? Thanks.

Can anyone help me evaluate whether I should take an exit opportunity. Currently in big 4 (fsrm) and have the opportunity to join a f250 payments firms internal strategy division.

The team seems really nice but I’m just worried about leaving consulting and leaving the accelerated progression. Would love some insights as I’m fairly lost on what to decide. Thanks!

My final round panel interview was 5 weeks ago. It went really well, but at the end of the interview the hiring managers told me I was the first one they interviewed and the application process just started so I might not hear from them for a while. Do you think there’s still hope. Last connected with HR 3 weeks ago & he said they’re still interviewing and he’d let me know if I had next steps.
