Posted in Big 4 bowl but reposting here: Looking to move into a general Consulting Staff/Business Transformation/Strategy position mid-late 2022. Was eyeing a Summer/Fall 2022 Business Transformation Staff position at EY in particular, but it has dropped off. Any idea of when positions like that will typically open up across most firms? Want to get in early, open to any firm. I do not have an MBA, but I am client facing and work in commercial markets currently. TYIA!
Help..I need someone's recommendation for an tax accountant in San Francisco...the client is a graduate student I believe
Can you expense dinner in you home city on Thursday nights on T&M project? I did it on my last fixed fee project for 9 months and never got questioned.
What are jobs and companies that require similar skills like consulting, digital marketing, etc. but have excellent WLB and are more slower paced...? I can’t imagine working my life away for client demands in a fast paced environment for the long term. Also the longer I progress in my role, the more I have to focus on sales and I hate sales so much 😢
As a junior associate, how do you find the healthy balance to take initiative in matters as opposed to wasting billable time on something the client won’t pay for or the partner might not actually want?￼￼
The two people at my client who are former consultants are literally the only people around here who have any idea how shit gets done.
Brought in at clients request despite not having experience in work stream, found out leadership wanted more senior consultant and was trying to dissuade client. I’m uneasy, like leadership doesn’t +

How often does Deloitte layoff people? I've read some older reports on quota on Deloitte layoffs, do these happen often? Is it for folks on bench for x amount of time?
If you get fired because you’ve been on the bench too long from not being able to find a project does this constitute being able to receive unemployment until you find a new job?
On the bench for the first time in a while. So happy I'm not waking up at 4:40 a.m. Good luck to the rest of you flying out tomorrow! I'm going to sit naked in my bed and build a few decks.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Anyone has any good interview coach suggestions?

🐠 who have been at multiple consulting firms, can you share the big differences between your employers? (Particularly interested in culture and ways of working, as a 🐠 who’s spent their entire career at one consulting shop)
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
Do any other firms have a policy that requires you to return to work for a certain period after paid parental leave, and if you choose to leave you are required to pay it back? If so, is there anyone who decided to leave before the end of that period? What happens if you can’t afford to pay it back?
