Hey McKinsey Fish! Is there any real luck of applying to a job on the website? I applied to an implementation role that I know I would be qualified for but without any referral. Been a few weeks so was just hoping to atleast see a rejection 😁
Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
I have been contacted by Philip Morris for a director position. Now a director at a food and beverage company and 2 yrs post Mba experience in MBB. Any feedback on the company? What offer should I be expecting ?

Feeling stuck in my role, but unsure of my next move. Move agencies? Stick to social/PR? Acct mgmt? Get an MBA to become an eventual brand mgr? I’m so overwhelmed and feel like I have to specialize.
Hi All, I am anjani working as SAP PI/PO CONSULTANT would like to change the company if any openings are there please let me know. I am having 3.5 years of experience. Thanks.
Is very high stress over the staffing process a good enough reason to leave? I’m not the best cold-networker, i’m much better at keeping a network once i’ve actually worked with people. I am constantly anxious and stressed and thinking about when i’ll next roll off, worrying about being let go off the bench and never finding a new role.
Looking for fellow applicants (round 1 targeting M7). Extremely nervous about submitting and torn between shooting for MBA and seizing the current hiring spree.
What's the weirdest exit you've ever seen? Social worker, candle making artisan, Buddhist monk, chocolate maker....?
Have a little less than 1YOE at my firm (started in Sept) - is it a bad idea to apply now or should I wait to the 1YOE mark? Would it be a bad idea to cold apply? Don't want to miss out entirely on the hiring spree but also worried about being dinged due to relatively little experience. I don't have a lot of connections at the firms but can probably pull together a referral in the next few months with some networking.
Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
What does an Area Manager at Amazon entail? Curious about the role and its responsibilities as well as TC.
I am a recent graduate with Masters in Industrial engg. I graduated with a 3.97 GPA but I am unable to land any jobs. Is there anyone who can help me out with a referral or help me understand what to do in order to at least get connected with people from the same industry? I have been applying and connecting with people but no one replies back after I introduce myself. Any help would be much appreciated!!
On a new project serving in a Product Manager role, any certifications, courses, books etc you’d recommend?
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
A potential local role that I haven’t been allocated to versus a role that would require travel to four different cities. Have a 3 year old and one year old and can’t be on bench that long. Thoughts
Ladies who have been promoted to a manager role, what would you say is the greatest different between it and your time as a consultant/senior consultant? I know this varies slightly between firms but I’m considering going for a manager promotion down the line but want to make sure I’m comfortable with what will be expected of me (and see what I need to work on to be successful).
Piggybacking off the manager post below. SA3 currently at 115k NYC. What kinds of exit opportunities are available for me? Should I stay for promotion? What would I reasonably get?
ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.

How are firms handling the economic downturn in terms of billable hour requirements for associates? Are annual billable requirements being updated or mitigated in any way? Curious to see how other firms are handling this issue, and also afraid of not being able to take any time off until 2021 😳
