A few months ago, I changed consulting firms and have regretted it. I have been interviewing again, hoping this time to find a better fit & exit consulting. I also moved 2 weeks ago. I’ve been feeling very unsettled lately and unlike myself. I know it’s all of the change in such a short amount of time. But it’s making me feel like I’m a stranger to myself & that I’m alone. Has anyone else gone through similar feelings? I’m missing comfort, stability, and familiarity but I don’t have those now.
Before you became an engineer, what did you find intimidating about the field and how did you overcome it?

How do you price out consulting time? It’s not exactly a ‘deliverable’, more so providing insight based on experience, not an hours work. I’ve been approached by a client to do freelance consulting on what they currently have and art direction/design for new projects. Thank you

If a recruiter places someone at the firm, are they ethically/contractually precluded from working with that person to eventually leave the firm? Let's say it's been over a year.

TCS or Capgemini, which is better in terms of job security?
Presently working with TCS and got an offer with almost 80% hike from Capgemini. Should I join?
I am hearing stories of Tax Managers with 6 years of experience getting offers at $175k in NYC. Senior Managers at $250k. Is that really where the market is now?
I sent a FL contract to a new client and they came back to me with a cap of 20 hours on the project. It’s for a press release and an opinion piece along with research and pitching it to trade publications. When I initially accepted it at a $100 hourly rate, I assumed I’d be able to bill in the hours. But the cap limits the work I can do. How do I negotiate? I don’t want to lose the client but also want to do what’s fair to me. Any advice on how to proceed?

i saw this post on another thread and it hit very close to home. i know of some really inspirational, driven women who are CCOs and we all probably had more than our fair share of a fight to get here. I had to switch to a similar industry. What about your role and level? what was the climb like and do you also see stuff like this?
Hey Ladies- what all do you invest in? And why + how did you start investing in that specific space? Looking for diversification ideas. Have maxed on IRA/Roth/extra IRA and other paper investments.
I have been struggling with juggling work and caregiving for my elderly parents who are at the point where they need constant help, however they refuse to believe they need to move to assisted living. I am struggling with keeping up with work and trying to have some semblance of a life outside of work and caring for them. I understand that caring for small kids can feel like this, but this is different. There is no moment of joy, it’s all kind of depressing. Looking for some wisdom of others.

I realize this is a first world and girl problem but I’m approaching 50 and I hate everything in my closet. my husband and I make over $1 million a year and I can’t find anything to spend money on that I think looks appropriate for a work setting that also reflects my fashion sense. I went shopping today and I swear all they have is loungewear My closet is full of things I wore when I was 40 that either don’t fit or don’t suit me anymore￼￼

Hi everyone, it’s been great meeting you through fishbowl! I’m curious, which other websites, communities, or groups do you use frequently or find valuable to gain career advice? I’m exploring my options and would love to hear your input, please comment them below!
How much do you help your children? I have two, one 27 and one 23. Paid for their college which is pretty standard. One wants a newer car and I hate the idea of the bank taking money for interest. Thinking of loaning them the money instead. A little jump start. Gainfully employed kids I will add. Thoughts ?
Any moms here? Pregnant with my first and debating if I take an extended leave (20 weeks is standard or 33 weeks to extend through end of summer). Will likely be a new Senior Partner in consulting when I return. Will it kill my pipeline? Will I get bored? Should I worry about optics? Would love to hear from other executive women how you approached. My firm is completely supportive of whatever I choose.

Hello ladies! I am in the midst of a contract negotiation and it has a pretty broad 6 months non compete - basically doesn’t allow me to be employed by a company which is considered competition. Did you come across that? How you worked it out?
I’ve been struggling with this, in part because it happened to me in a previous role & I’m trying to leave it behind. I was managing a diverse team which had two white males on it. I recall during my first few wks, whenever I stated something in a meeting 1 of the white males would re-explain what I just said really rapidly, almost in a manic sort of way.The other white male would get really sassy (not how else to describe this) with me at times. Needed to get that out. Thanks for reading
