Hello guys, I’m looking for changing my sector of job. I’ve 1.8 months of experience in construction industry as a project manager. Kindly help me asap with any new job opening for freshers in finance or consulting field.
How do I get off a project without potentially getting laid off? Joined the firm 3 months ago, but my project is terrible. I can’t sleep, work 60 hours, developing anxiety and low-key depression just thinking about my next day of work. How do I tell the manager/partner I want out? The client is very important to the firm. But Im done, there’s no other option. Please help, im really going crazy and can’t be there for another month.
At Big4: How do some partners sell projects and survive when it's a disaster working with them? Constantly flip flopping on decisions in deliverables, aggressively forcing their incorrect views and rejecting ideas from the project team - which eventually, the client comes to the same idea after workshops. All the partner can do is BS really eloquently when called out by the client. Don't you have to showcase your deep expertise to sell a project??
What’s it like to be a Project Manager for media (SEO, etc)? What is PM responsible for, what do deliverables look like, which team members do you work with, etc? Articles/VIDEOS welcome thanks!
What are the consequences of asking to be rolled off a project? I am so sick of the BS on this project.
Dear SM, stop trying to make yourself look valuable by making us do bullshit analysis that means nothing and that would never ever get put in front of the client
How did you build your client list? I work in public accounting and I’ve never worked Big4 so wondering if it’s different. We have to get our own clients unless a partner retires and you inherit them at my firm.
How short do you all wear your skirts? I keep it typically a bit short and feel that the staff in my client organization keep ogling at me.
Should I be concerned? I found out that my billable rate is significantly less than my peers due to heavy client discount. Does this affect career growth at all?

I think I am hitting my lowest point during the quarantine now - been four months since I saw my loved ones, living alone and now on a really stressful project 🙁 I don’t know how much longer I can keep myself motivated. Just wanted to vent, thanks for listening!
When your main client contact is a boomer...
Me, before leaving client Thurs: My client totally deserves to feel challenged - change is hard! Me, 1 step into the airport: WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE (client). IT SHOULDN'T BE THIS DAMN HARD OMG
Ever been promoted at your firm while on a project and you have to be rolled off bc your billable rate is higher than what the client has budgeted? Or does your firm find this as an opportunity to renegotiate the SoW?
I have a PTO balance that is over the amount that would be paid out upon leaving. I'm on a project for about 2 more weeks and in a dilemma on when to put in my notice. Any suggestions?
Are folks getting RFE on H1 transfer to Big4? My question is specifically because initially your office location is the only one mentioned coz you don’t know what client you will be assigned?
Hello , I am looking for consulting work to do on the side , preferably HR ( recruiting , talent acquisition , on boarding , sourcing ) or Business development .. what is a good way to find these opportunities? I am not looking for anything commission based but more hourly or a weekly project fee .. any ideas ?
Non-accounting: Now I only want to be spoon fed. I am so tired of being both planner and executor in 10 out of 10 projects. In any new project all I have is a request from my boss, often times with vague requirements. They drain my brain energy.
How do you stay motivated if you didn't get promoted? Was expecting to make SA so I'm super bummed (to make things worse someone on my project team who I pretty much manage got promoted over me😩)

Oh nooooo I ate too much chipotle and now there’s no room for my lungs....why do I overeat just because I can expense stuff 😣
Work from home Friday ... Also known as keep on moving the mouse so the lync status remains in "Available"
Does MBB recruit at Associate Partner level (or eq level of one below partner) from other consulting firms? And if yes, how long is their path to partnership and challenges?
My job let’s me choose between NYC and SF. I’m a young guy - from a dating perspective is one better than the other? I know people talk about the gender inequity in SF but my sense is during the pandemic a lot of guys have moved out of the Bay Area to cities like NYC, LA etc.
What are some positive and negative examples of firms attempts to improve I&D (e.g., positive: expanding list of target schools | negative: recruiting "seasons" only available to one gender)?
My full time job (not SMU) is literally making me sick-spent time at the ER. One associate quit and another is out of full paid parental leave (must be nice, I’m not paid for doing double the work)…so I’m now expected to do the work of 3 associates. My supervisor isn’t exactly understanding, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching for jobs, but it’s difficult since my background is diverse and not focused on one area of law. If I quit, how hard is it to find a new job?
If there is one advice you would give to a new mom of 2 kids what would it be ? my sister is pregnant with baby 2 and she is freaking out as she has a toddler. My one advice to her was sleep train at 4 months. I thought many new moms , soon to be moms would benefit from this thread and I can share with my sister too.
Have a chance to leave insurance defense, but would still be very underpaid. Not sure if I should keep trying to find something that's not ID that pays more or take this out as this is the first time I get this type of opportunity
Does anyone from Alvarez and Marsal have any TC info for first year analysts as well as analyst salary progression? Curious about what base and bonus have looked like in the past, specifically for the healthcare group (HIG). Also interested in seeing what comp for other A&M groups look like for analysts.
I've got an upcoming interview for data science manager at PwC. Can anyone share any insights on the application process, and details about the grade/remuneration at this level? Not familiar with big 4
Tricky situation: Got asked by the client I’m on if I’d like to join the team we’re serving. I know EY has a non-compete with clients. Thoughts/suggestions on how to navigate?
I recently received variance in snapshot to DTE hours, saying I need to raise additional snapshots to cover 80% of DTE hours, but the performance snapshot window is closed now. Any idea how to proceed with this?
Ideas for reaching out to alumni on LinkedIn you didn't know well in regards to a position at their firm? I feel that if I didn't mention the position in the intro email, I would be coming of as insincere. Any one else feel this way or advice to get around this? Thanks!
After having a child, I never struggle with motivation anymore. I want to provide him the best life possible and make him proud. He is such a light in our lives, and it gives me a new sense of purpose knowing I am a role model to him. Anyone feel the same?
L.E.K. Consulting first round tomorrow, any advice on what to expect for the strategy case? Purely qual or an element of quant also? Also would be great to hear from anyone whose recently been through the process. I'm interviewing for AC.
I have had covid before (a year ago), female, and had my first moderna shot. I’m a little worried about taking my second shot cuz I’ve heard ppl who had high fever for a week straight. Since I’m high risk for having a bad adverse reaction to the second dose. Debating if I should still get it? I’m just really not looking forward to that 104 degree fever for a week straight.
During Covid times, we should help the ones in need of a fresh start/ change. EY is hiring for Oracle domain. DM for referrals.
