KPMG 🐠, if I was submitted as a referral, do I then need to apply for the role on the experienced hire page? The automatic email from KPMGs referral program is confusing.
I have an upcoming interview for a Program Manager role at Amazon. Can anyone provide some insight or what to expect? Apparently I’ll be going through 6 interview. TIA!
Strategy role in Cloud. L5. TC 225k SGD. Singapore based. Thoughts? Total 6.5 YRS exp. 2.5 yrs in MBB. Currently a manager.
Thoughts on leaving B4 for a 20-25% increase for a smaller consulting firm doing something I would enjoy more? ~3.5 YOE for 105-115 TC in a MCOL city. Potentially will get promoted this year in my current role. Thoughts on this opportunity?
I was laid off fall of last year, allegedly due to covid. I just saw that they re-listed my position and now am devastated and doubting everything about my career. I got good reviews at this and my previous jobs but many are cowardly about giving honest feedback. I took a step down and started a new job recently so I’ll be ok in the long run but the job I was laid off from was my “dream job”. I don’t have strong family/friend support, exacerbated by covid isolation. Any wisdom/advice?
Start up in e-commerce analytics has 7 MM in annual revenue and about 35 employees. The product also seems legit. I would be running their accounting and other back office functions. What things should I be thinking about when transitioning from a traditional firm role to a start up?
Who is hiring right now? Looking for Consulting or FAANG opportunities around strategy, or business development like roles. Possibly product management if they don’t need direct experience in the role.
Any ACN MD’s here? I’m close to being offered an MD position in their Strategy and Consulting practice. Hoping someone could tell me how your sales credit process works. Told my first year target would be around $15m
I referred someone and he just sent me a long text that he is cancelling the interview (citing that he had a second thought about the position) after convincing HR and my Partner that this person is interested and can do the job. Note: He called me several times prior to the referral to follow up and even assured me that he was really interested in the position. How should I handle it?
I spent almost 20 years at agencies. I got laid off last year and took a consulting role at the manager level in Big Tech. I’m paid enough to be comfortable and have little stress because I’m doing a job that’s easy for me, but can’t shake that I’m settling or it may set me back later if I decide to go for long term gigs. Am I crazy? Should I just enjoy not being stressed for the first time in my life for longer than a few months?
What questions should I ask startup founders? I'm trying to determine if it's a good exit opportunity.
Anyone have intel on Insight Partners? Looking at a role in their strategy and analytics team within Onsite. Seems the role spans both deal work & portfolio operations.. I see a lot of ex-mbb and bankers on linkedin so perhaps there is deal exposure. Can’t imagine an evercore M&A guy leaving for portfolio operations. But have never heard of them before so curious if anyone could provide some insight? (pun not intended)
Anyone have experience with hiring a casing coach for MBB interview prep? Is it worth it? If so, any recs?
We hiring that girl from a law firm as a Manager in forensic with no experience (and no CPA or CFE). How do you think I should react? I am 2Y SC on my way to Manager this year
My GF is interviewing for a role she’s really excited about. She met with the hiring manager yesterday, and said she felt it went pretty well (the hiring manager told her after the interview that he has 4 other folks to interview and then he’ll get back to her). She sent an update/thank you note to the executive recruiter this morning and got this reply. Does the note portend good or bad news? She’s worked up like crazy.
I spent 15 years in industry, last 3 in consulting. I feel like I’m a generalist now instead of a SME. What’s the best way to seek a new job in industry & position in the interviews? How to explain the 3 year gap without disclosing that it was just something I wanted to try and then got complacent and now am seemingly 3 years behind my peers/industry knowledge. I feel like I’ve lost my way a bit.
Hiring manager said he would get back after new year. I followed up on Jan 11th as I did not hear back. He replied on the same day that he is sorting thing out and will get back in a day or two and he has not responded till now. Will it be too pushy to follow up again.
EY Parthenon fishes need some help ! Have a call with HR to talk about salary expectations. Interview went stellar and I think I really impressed all the interviewers ! I interviewed for M&A execution group. What is the base salary for a director ? I think it’s manager equaling at other consulting firms. Does EY Parthenon offer a signing bonus for experienced hires? Currently a manager at a competing firm and have 7 years of experience post masters (non MBA). Thank you !!!

@Grant Thornton fish, what is your transaction advisory/M&A group like? (Culture, compensation, quality of life, etc.)
Junior associate here with very little work. I reached out to the assigning partner, but I haven’t heard back. I’m struggling to motivate myself to seek out more work by talking to other partners or coming up with ideas for articles and other non-billable work. Instead I find myself reading books, watching movies, and generally just kicking back and enjoying the free time. That said, I feel guilty that I’m not working a ton like I used to. I’m also worried that my lack of pro activity when it
Poll: Is it creepy to look at somebody’s LinkedIn profile prior to an interview, or is it considered good preparation? This is from the perspective of the potential employee.
I am having a tough day and want to get some ideas. I have been leading a team of 20+ folks and I am up for promotion this year. The product I am leading is doing so well that we have to expand with a bigger team. However, instead of giving me the opportunity to lead they are bringing my previous boss and I have been requested to report to him. My previous boss is smart as hell but lazy and always just passes on things down. I am also pregnant with my 2nd and haven’t told . Contd..
If I've been hired for a remote-only temporary position, is it likely I'll be brought as a full-time employee after everyone returns to the office?
Hello, Fishies! I’m thrilled to get to spend time with you today! It’s still dark in San Diego, and I’m sitting here in my home office in my PJs, armed with coffee, and ready to dig in. Let’s go!
Ad agency designer desperately looking for an out but I have a possible new job opportunity. Here is my dilemma: Pros.... more money, no crazy client demands, pitches or decks or even prospective clients that will go nowhere (in-house), better benefits Cons.... this is a big one - it’s healthcare I’ve been at agencies with a range of clients for the past few years. Career suicide taking an in-house healthcare job? Especially if role focuses more on growth & performance over design?
Does Deloitte Consulting reimburse 2nd year tuition fees for MBA candidates who intern and then join full time?
Right now I’m in tech product launch at Cap. Is it better to transfer to SAP in Capgemini to gain more tech skill OR to Capgemini Invent (which is not known for strategy consulting)? My goal is MBB.
I would only do an MBA if it’s fully sponsored, that being said has anyone had luck with any of the minority sponsorship programs?
I have money in my traditional IRA and have been contributing to my 401k with post tax contributions. Every so often I move money from my 401k to my Roth IRA since I can’t directly contribute to it. Assuming I had no gains on the after tax 401k contributions, will I be taxed on part of the money since I have money in my traditional IRA? I keep reading that you shouldn’t have a traditional IRA open when you do the backdoor roth. Not sure if it’s related to the pro data rule.
Anyone know if the delta “Medallion fast track consulting” promotion begins after the registration period is over or whenever you register?
