You will need to submit a second employment approval form for your partners signature. However, you will need to show there is no conflict of interest involved in the second employment and that it will not interfere with your current job.

D1: I love my job and I love my firm, but after half a decade of working here I've never once been impressed with our recruiters. I wouldn't mind at all if they heard me say that.

Here is one story: I tried to fill a rec for 8 months. Wrote the description myself and submitted it to our recruiters. Was looking for someone with an IT degree and ~1 year of experience doing anything IT or process related). Was essentially looking for an off-cycle campus hire.

Then I had 8 entire months of people show up for interviews and phone screens who weren't even remotely qualified. Turns out the recruiters didn't like my job rec, so they subbed in their generic "generalist" rec instead, without telling me.

Complete and total waste of personnel.

like

I wouldn't trust a recruiter. They are only slightly more useful than a bag full of dog turds.

I'd let them know that you have a question about your contract and would like to speak to an hr rep.

Be prepared to fight for it, though. Deloitte gains nothing by agreeing to let you run an income-generating side project.

Well technically it's not generating any income right now, but there's some potential there. It was a team of 4 but everyone's sort of dropped off. I'd like to continue just to keep gaining experience in the environment for myself

that awful PwC1, hope your PwC recruiter never heard you say that 😡

What was the one thing that impressed you PwC1?

sorry, mis read. How have they never impressed you? What do they do wrong?

@P1. Dude I've had some shit happen like this. Used some general BS and kept saying there was no one out there for this. Fucktard just wasn't working. He got booted from the project at least.

Re-posting this from the consulting bowl: I recently started doing Strategy Consulting doing CDD/ODD work and found myself enjoying the work a lot. I want to do buy-side work down the road and previously set my sights on MM IB opportunities to get there. Now I'm debating between leaving my firm to a T2 like LEK/EYP or going to a MM IB firm, but I'm unsure 1) which places me in PE better and 2) if former consultants are "looked down" in the PE world compared to former IB people. Any insights?

Business Development or Marketing in biopharma? Which is more interesting and rewarding? Marketing (and eventually GM) seems to be the top dog in big pharma companies with P&L responsibility, but jobs are limited to commercial companies. BD can exist throughout the development cycle and so you can find opportunities in more exciting cutting edge biotech companies. But BD seems to be a less direct path to C-level and more niche.

Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".

If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?

Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.

Whatever it is, it can wait.
