If poorly executed then I imagine it would be annoying. I would prefer a PM have a team meeting and update the tasks in front of everyone for the sake of accountability amongst the team.

@partners - I have two opportunities. One is to lead a group for a corporation (industry). The other is to join another consulting firm, doing the same work that I am doing now. While the comp will be better to stay in consulting and I do like the idea of becoming a partner one day, I am intrigued with the steady industry role... any advice?

Tired of prioritizing pleasing the client and winning follow-on work versus creating real long term value. On rare occasions those objectives are aligned, but commonly they are not. Feels like American politics where politicians value re-election over doing right for the country.

This guy I’m dating wanted to have lunch with me today. He came over to my place with his favorite childhood meal from his favorite local deli (a greasy cheesesteak with peppers and onions and home fries 🤢) and wanted me to try it for lunch. Just looking at it made me feel sick to my stomach. I have a very sensitive stomach, and I can’t really eat fried or greasy foods. I tried a bite, but I couldn’t eat it. He immediately got offended, ended the date and left. Did I do something wrong??

Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!

With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.
