Q&A with Mike Bentley

I'm concerned that people might be enamored with consulting firms like Deloitte and their impact on ad agencies. What are the advantages that these consulting firms have over ad agencies? What are our competitive advantages?

There are circumstances and situations that make sense for client companies to get outside and independent business advice . The background of disruption that companies are facing makes this , broadly , one of those times . My experience of working with McKinsey , Bain or BCG etc has mostly been positive. They’re usually very smart people with a thorough, thoughtful approach to business . Our differences and advantages are simple and twofold. We understand consumer motivations and psychology and creative thinking . The good consultants I’ve worked with don’t stray into these areas but do collaborate with the agency . Very quickly , they recognize agencies as a source of useful perspective.

I had a panic attack yesterday because I heard more layoffs at work. Past 3 were women laid off in a company with already few of us and I was convinced I am next. They sponsor me so I may have to leave the country... feeling so low. Don’t know where to go next.

New to the consultancy world! Apologise if this question has been asked many times. My sister is getting married in India in December and wanting to attend the wedding. But my visa appointment is in February. Even after I use all my leaves, I still need atleast 45 days (1.5 months) of unpaid leave. As per EY rules, I can't work outside USA. Did anyone go against the company's rules and figure out a way to work from India? Just thinking of all possible ways to make this possible! Thanks peeps :)

Hi ladies! I am seeking advice as I am torn between between prepping and applying to MBA or FAANG jobs. I currently am at 4.5 YOE, 150K base, engineering manager. My network has advised that an MBA can help pivot careers as I’m exploring content strategy (Netflix). One of my goals is to also work in London. I will add that there is an expectation in my family for higher education and candidly, my longer term goal is a CXO position. Thank you!
