Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
I have an interview for a position at Slalom coming up for Slalom Emerge and was wondering what I should be expecting. I had a pretty good chat with the recruiter and I'm happily employed as is, but I'm always happy to test the waters. Any insights into the job, interview, negotiations process, working environment, culture, travel, etc.? It would be in the integration area. Thanks!
Strategy folks - how do you get good at … strategy? Recently started at a startup in a role where I’m the only person under the head of our product team who handles the strategy-focus of the company. He wants me to take more ownership from him and I want to crush it but have no relevant experience here and am still fairly junior. Any books or classes? Or is it just trial by fire.
Folks - what’s your 1) Total Comp vs Net Worth, and 2) age. Curious about individuals’ saving and investment practice. I’m 180k TC vs 750k NW, age 33
What kind of roles does “business analyst” open you up to? I have 5 YOE, 3 in audit and 2 in analytics/cloud enablement consulting. Found a role for business analyst at FAANG that sounds like it would make good use of my cumulative experience but not sure if these are typically dead end roles or not.
Do you guys write cover letters when applying online (aka no referral)? I used to follow that rule and then got bored, but I'm wondering how much difference it really makes these days
Partner: you will work as an acting senior, but we do not grant you the rank of senior or a raise. Staff: what? How can you do this? It’s outrageous, unfair! Partner: take a seat, young auditor. Me: what about the client who ate all the cookies?
Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?

Anyone on here consider taking a federal position? Pros/cons for going from federal consultant to taking a GS-14 federal position? I’m debating it for the flexibility and benefits
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
I want to switch role as an AWS developer. But I have just learnt the things on my own in AWS. In interview I am asked questions based on real scenarios on which I am not having any experience. Any suggestions? Even if I do hands on on services like Linux academy or quiklabs, it would not help. (AWS cloud migration experience one can get if worked on a real project). Please help.

As a relatively new hire out of a top undergrad school, how long should I wait before applying to MBB if I got rejected after final round interviews last year?
Need suggestions: my current investments are FXAIX, VOO, SPAXX and FSEAX distributed among rollover, IRA and brokerage account. What should I consider for 401K?
MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League. One of the factors into my decision is what is the propensity that the resume gets pulled for on campus mbb recruiting, given that undergrads are probably applying as well? I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?
Hello everyone, I have an upcoming case study with one of the big 4 for a M&A generalist position at manager level. Does anyone have any guidance based on: "Nothing particular to prep, we will share an information memorandum with you and you and you will be given a number of questions. We will ask you to read that for an hour in your own time and then present answers to the questions for 30 minutes to myself and another director. The questions will be a mix of qualitative and quantitative."
Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?
Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?
Corporate practice - I leave my job for a top of the market raise - it would be about a 25 percent pay increase. Is it possible to ask for more money before leaving or would that piss people off?
Got an offer to join a startup, originally meant to take on the Chief of Staff role, but unfortunately title has been given away to someone else. I’m still interested in joining the company though, and have license to come up with my own title. Any title suggestions? (Won’t be a managerial role)
Yahoo reports 1.4 million healthcare workers lost their job during COVID19. Are you one of them? How can we help?
Is it possible to go from Big 4 consulting to MBB, or would you have to get an MBA to make that shift?
So KPMG changed it benefits, 6% of you salary (not just base pay) contribution to 401K without any contribution required by employees and 3 years of vesting period. So you will get the 6% even if you don’t put anything into 401K. So proud of KPMG
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…
Two-thirds of women say they’ve been bullied by another woman at work. What’s your take on it? I’m pretty sure that we’re equal with men on that one. Should bullying be assigned a gender?
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
Looking to exit consulting but the open jobs in Dallas that I’m finding don’t pay as well. Looking for $160k base or more for a Sr Manager - has anyone here had any luck with finding well-paying jobs in the area after leaving consulting? Any advice on where to look?
