Round or exact numbers on banners/LPs? I was curious about this since in negotiations for example or pricing it's better to have the exact number. But if you have a case study, for example, is it better to say "Client X increased their revenue to 1,000,000 ARR" instead of "Client X increased their revenue to 987,500 ARR" ? Anyone has seen any impact on conversion rates?

It depends on if you have to verbalize the number and how many times you have to do it. Nobody wants to say nor hear the numbers down to the penny. I think that it’s important to be able to do it. But, if you want the numbers to stick, keep them round when presenting.

Would love any thoughts. I’m almost 6yrs in Accenture as a Management Consulting manager, worked in the telecom industry for the last few years and have mainly focused on CX/business process improvement. I’ve found lately that when I look at those managers above me/the execs we report to, I don’t necessarily envision myself wanting their jobs. I can’t tell if it’s the hours, the client bootlicking we end up doing, or just the need to try something new - but I’m not loving the idea of staying.

Random, but valid/persistent thought.

How can I get over this feeling? I'm over the whole "stand in the line of fire to prove how good I am" bs. Any recommendations for getting over this or possible industries to pivot into to avoid bs interview processes and ghosting?
