2021 Headwinds and Tailwinds. What are the thoughts as the fiscal year closes out? I'm seeing 2021 as likely more punishing given the lack of visibility and the fact we may have diminished economic activity for 2 to 3 quarters. I have little visibility into how comp will be impacted but can only imagine lots of early retirement zoom parties. Thoughts?
Thinking about transferring to EY Miami office - anyone familiar with this office/client focus?
As part of updating resume post consulting, do you include project specific impact achieved, or keep it generic/high level?
What’s your go-to Slack message for bugging an exec for the 5th time about something they’re a blocker on?
I know this has been asked before but since FB has no search function...how do people organize their resumes? Project or competency/skills
Zoom is dumb
My (white) manager consistently gives me feedback that I’m “very literal” when doing assignments. She asks for something, I do what her directions say, and she tells me “oh you took that very literally. You’re very literal.” Obviously consulting is subjective and we’ve all had managers give vague directions leading to multiple iterations of work, but at what point do I push back? I’ve also noticed her say this about several black colleagues including clients and the senior mgr on the project.
Answered a client email at 5am today even though I rolled off yesterday. You won't last in consulting unless you find satisfaction in helping truly deserving clients. #dedication
So a client manager and I used to flirt a lot, though I kept my distance because obviously dontwanttofuckshitup! Now that she is leaving the firm, is it okay to respond to her moves?
Thoughts on switching consulting firms during this time...? Concerned about potential hiring freezes. Also anyone start a project that kicked off remotely without being on site?
Random question but can someone detect if you use a local screen recording tool to record a zoom call?
Preparing for first summer in NYC. What’s acceptable business casual wear for men when it’s hot and humid? Are polos and slack fine, or is it still shirt and jacket?
I'll be joining Microsoft's FRP next year, and I'm trying to establish a plan for my LT goals. From reading various threads, the consistency seems to be consulting->FAANG. I've heard that mobility into a Corp Strat role is feasible - just a matter of networking. Since I'll be starting at Microsoft and Strategy is something of interest, can anyone share their experiences if they have done this or know someone who has? Wondering what role an M7 MBA may lead to as well (considering). TIA!
Just received an offer from EY. The offer came in a bit lower than I had hoped, any tips to negotiate salary or sign on bonus? (currently an S1 at KPMG)
Anyone hear anything about the travel ban from India being relaxed anytime soon? My parents were due to come in July - wondering if that’s going to happen or not
What is your Remote work experience, Coronavirus Work-Life seems to have changed the way we work impactfully
Got an offer from another firm, what is likely my current firm will match or just come up? The pay raise is roughly 30%. Also suggestions on how to go about asking.
Tips for lateral negotiation? Does the recruiter typically do it for you or are you expected to negotiate on your own. Not trying to negotiate salary (market) but other things.
Deloitte’s Cyber Risk Team is hiring across multiple cybersecurity domains in most US locations. DM for more info and referral.
Has anyone ever reported repeated micro-aggressions from a partner that were taking a toll on your mental health to HR or otherwise? If so, what approach did you take? Would doing it during an exit interview be a good idea? Or is it perhaps better to just leave the firm without saying anything to avoid burning bridges?
Can anyone explain the bonus cycle at BCG? It sounds like bonuses are given annually at the end of the year, so if you start in July do you receive a pro-rated bonus that year or do you wait until the first bonus period after completing a year of work?
Hi European 🐠 My company is currently looking for IT architects and tech consultants (any level). We’re a boutique with a amazing team culture and really very interesting projects, great learning opportunities (aka we don’t get hired to take over tasks no one wants to do, we get hired to make a difference) + above average comp. Relocation is not necessary, as long as you’re in CET time zone and live close to an airport. DM me for more information! Cheers
Did I screw myself by being the first person to bring up salary figures with a startup? I tried to hold firm and make sure they said ballpark range first before I said if those align with my expectations, but she gave a vague “it depends on market, but I can give you a broad range from $45k-$90k for the role.” So I responded with $70k-$80k. Should I have asked for the highest range then of $80k-$90k? Worst case scenario, I don’t want it being revoked.
Does life get easier post-MBA?
Media 🐠: Other than money and the potential of better work/life balance, what other reasons attract you to a client side role?
This question is not gender related, yet I don’t want to be ‘mansplained’ to, hence asking here ;) it’s related to taxable income at Deloitte...
Would love your help negotiating an offer! I’m a manager with 4.5 YOE (promoted early), interviewed with a startup for a manager role, offer came back for associate role (associate role is entry level and requires 3-5 YOE, manager requires 6-8 YOE) at a 10% pay increase with EOM start date. I’m due to fully vest AND receive a bonus from my current firm in April and have not yet brought this up to the recruiter. Should I be concerned about a title cut / how should I handle April convo? Thanks!
I was invited to an event hosted by an insurance group. One of the three principals is a cfp but is not registered as a rr or iar. Does the cfp board let this happen?
