Ladies I have been reflecting on something that's been bothering me a lot. Women are not getting promoted to manager fast enough. I am up for promotion this year and it feels hard to get your name out
Leaving Deloitte for a better consulting firm & a 50%+ raise. Thank you to D, if they didn’t pay me raises 1/10th the size of competitors, I would’ve never applied!

What are typical promotion timelines at RSM management consulting? Had a friend get promoted and it seems very fast but curious how much of a stud he is! Thanks!
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
Is it worth it to get an executive mba if I’m not working in the field I want while I’m getting it?
Fellow fishes, any suggestion or pointers on how to best respond to RFE. My application has been picked up for H1B this year and I have been asked to submit my job duties & courses I took in MBA. Thnx
Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
I am almost 32, been w my partner for years & want kids eventually. In a perf world, we’d start trying at about 35 or so. I want to get a promotion before any leave & think I’m on path to achieve that by ~35. If willing to share, I’m looking to hear experiences w freezing your eggs (for better or for worse). A few friends had fertility problems, unsuccessful IVFs, & now I’m paranoid. I know everyone is different & I’m not looking for med advice, but would like to hear others’ experiences on this
