If you’ve been at the same client b/c you’re constantly winning work there, does it help when it comes time for promotion? I heard it’s generally the fast track to a promo but not sure if it’s true.

That said, you should try to vary your experience to the extent possible while on the client as well as perhaps try getting part time work on other clients to diversify your experience. The downside to being on one client that likes you for years is that you may encounter less adverse situations there than your peers may with more varied clients, leaving you less prepared for those challenges when you eventually have to deal with those on other clients.

Also if you’re tied to only one client - generally there will be a upper limit to growth (unless lucky and very big $$$) and will stall your career. Also you never know if there could be a shakeup (new c-suite who had a bad experience with Pwc and likes working with another firm)

Of course.. it depends on what level

Currently senior consultant in Advisory. Not too thrilled with being at the current client for almost a year now, particularly for the reasons you all mentioned. Since I’ll be up for promotion, debating whether to ask out soon (and possibly piss off the people deciding my promotion) or let things play out

Any pointers for someone who struggles to speak up during meetings? When I do speak, I’m confident, clear, and direct, but finding that I’m very self-conscious about speaking up or providing my perspective during workshops or brainstorms with the client, for fear of being wrong or being judged. I’ve received some feedback about it lately, so wondering if you 🐠 had any advice

I know I posted 3 wks ago about house #4. But a week later I got the inspection report & it was a no go. Lesson learned. But this house I AM buying. I close in about 2 wks. 1st column: The #s w/current tenant till June. We won't renew the lease. Instead we'll rehab the inside; ~$7k, then raise the rent to match the market. Using coulmn #2, total monthly cashflow of all homes is $1,186mo. Initial goal is $20.5K/$1,708 mo. Almost there! If we can rent it for $1.1Kmo (column 3)...AWESOME!

I’m being promoted to Manager this November but recent got offer from a fintech. In money term the manager base pay is 5k greater than the new role but i’m negotiating to match the offer with my Manager salary. Should I wait until promoted or move asap? I dont want to continue working in external audit so trying to pivot to data analyst role/IA in the fintech before moving to full DA/DS position… but thinking the Manager promotion would help negotiate salary in the future.
