Big4 company wants me to tell my current employer (big client) that I am intending to join them and sort of get a soft approval. This is before even giving a written offer. I have no interaction with anyone from this Big4 co, nor has anyone associated with both companies has helped. This is all after interview, offer negotiation, offer approval. Does this happen? Seems like I wasted my time.
People realize the recession is only just starting right? So far we have only had a few rate rises, with many more to come. Stocks are down a little, but only just barely into bear territory. Major companies will be reporting large losses soon, but that hasn't happened yet, and the market will react to that. No major companies have begun large layoffs yet, either, so far we are only seeing a few minor hiring freezes. And of course we haven't seen bankruptcies yet, but they are surely coming.
EY 🐠 Any chance of flexing a SM position to MD? Interested in a role and would be a great fit, but not interested in a lateral.
@McKinsey fish - how did you make it through the interview process? I'm not sure how to tackle all of the prep material out there and I'd really like to know what you did to set yourself apart? Any and all other help would be super appreciated!!!

Earnest question: which firm/group would be the best place for a degenerate alcoholic? Points for WLB, TC more of a tie breaker, prestige irrelevant if not slightly biased against (don't want to work with a bunch of squares). Currently interviewing and finding it difficult to get the hard hitting information. Thanks in advance.
Really like a few opportunities at S& and think my profile is a good fit. Anyone open to provide referral?

How much time should I give myself to prepare for consulting interviews? No background in consulting or consulting-related interviews.
Did I set my career back two+ years by accepting an Analyst offer after interviewing for Consultant? ~ 3 years in industry and was being offered Senior Financial Analyst roles but wanted to get into consulting. Was told on the call for my offer that they were extending the offer as analyst because I "didn't have consulting experience" but they hit my salary ask and I got excited and went with it without arguing. Now that I've been here ~6 mos., I keep feeling like I screwed up my path forward

Anyone want to give me a like so I can get to 11 ♥️’s in order to DM for a referral. I’ll like all comments for this post in return and I hope others will as well. Let’s all get to 11+ hearts together.
What’s the correlation between compensation & happiness? I have never been a very happy person (depressed from time to time) and my comp is only 150k. What compensation do I need to reach so that I can become immediately happy? 200k, 300k, 500k?
Vent Session: My manager gave me feedback that I didn’t give enough notice for taking a Friday off. I gave 5 weeks notice, and not on a Friday anywhere near a crunch time in the project. I log on today and got a note from her saying she is taking the next full week off on an impromptu vacation in Hawaii. Someone calm me down.
Dumbest thing you did as a new hire. 1, 2, 3, go...
Partner demanding to cancel spring break vacation that was approved last Oct. My project got pushed so now my vacay is the middle of UAT. Paid non refundable 5k air and hotel for my family. WTF?
Thoughts on this?
Uber driver asked me to wear my seat belt in the backseat. When I responded with a nah I'm ok, she goes on to say - "I can't drive without you being strapped". Seriously wtf! Happened to anyone else?
Craziest thing you’ve done in an interview when you knew you had no chance of getting the job?
My mgr has asked the team to share our calendars with him. On day 1 of the project during our onboarding call. Rolling off. No thanks.
Male client just told me to tell one of women on my team that her communication style is “too aggressive” so if anyone knows of a good bridge to throw him off of, I’m open to suggestions.
