How do I answer rhetorical questions?


Not like anything discussed here is really that sensitive


Right. It’s the other bowl where we talk about yachts and planes.


Has been going on since the beginning of time

My favorite is the “client partner” people on LinkedIn who are actually senior managers or account execs


Oh the horror. We started hiring some of those in my big 4, and I feel there is no respect for the craft anymore. Sell sell sell like it’s snake oil.

It never was only partners. .


It’s only fans of partners


I think it is? I haven't seen those titles come up tbh


I guess not.

I’m pretty sure as long as you have partner or principal or managing director somewhere in your title the FB filter just lets you in.

Feels like we need some ChatGPT here


It has always been a PINO bowl, never a PO bowl.

Outside of the B4, does “principle” mean equity owner? I’ve seen “principal consultants” who were definitely not partner level.

Outside the B4, “principle” means a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.

Well, actually it means that within the B4 as well.

A Principal

Hello fishes,

I believe we need to discuss on this matter as share our experiences and knowledge around this important topic..

Now as the world recession is around the corner and Indian markets and people's jobs are also getting affected.

What will be the right choice

A good product based company? Where the product is very strong.

Starting at McK (NA) next month and my training just moved from in-person to virtual - are you all seeing a decline in business travel because of covid concerns? I'd heard that a lot of teams had started to travel over the past few months


Any opening for manual testing, immediate joiner

Has anyone worked in public finance? I have an opportunity to work in this area of law but I am not familiar with it (I currently have experience in IP / Corporate). I am also a little concerned about work life balance in this area of law.


Can I get a referral for A&M?

3L here. I’ll be working at an Amlaw 200 firm in Phoenix next year. We’re supposed to choose our group within the next few weeks. I’m pretty split between Corporate & Securities and Real Estate. I’d love to hear pros and cons of the commercial real estate practice and maybe some comparisons between RE and C&S from your perspective.


Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.


I am hoping to introduce a friend to FIRE. Any book recommendations?

What are some of the most influential factors which helped shape your career and led to a successful rise up to PPMD level ?

I am being recruited by McKinsey. I am just starting the process so who knows what will happen. In the summer I had an offer from EY, which was good, but I actually felt like my role at ACN was just too good to leave. However Mck seems to focus on really interesting problems to solve. My questions to other partners out there - if you left another firm to go to Mck, why? If you considered an offer but decided to stay where you are, why? Don’t want to waste people’s time if I’m better off at ACN


Any partners transfer from Big4 or Accenture to MBB and live to tell the tale? Did you like the change? Did you fit with the culture?

Here’s an entirely unrelated to work question, but one that’s entirely “rooted” in vanity. Has anyone had any experience with Bosley or other hair restoration procedures? If so, what was your experience?


Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.


Any folks have interesting alternate investments that do well and you would care to share? (e.g. franchises, non-financial market investments)


Joining ZS … what are few things I need to keep in mind to become successful and flourish in the firm? Would like to hear from partners who are direct admits and have been successful at ZS


Im a fourth year partner. The clients are good, workload is manageable, have a great team and a great boss. But I'm just not motivated to go and kill it anymore. It just feels more of the same thing. Also, I keep having a feeling that I could be doing a lot more if I were in a startup or in a different corporate role. The only reason that stops me from doing any of this is that money here is good and I worked really hard to get here. Any advice?


For partners, can you offer me some benchmarks out there for % base vs bonus and total cash comp on upper end?


I am curious about Protiviti. Any partners move from Big 4, IBM or ACN? I have heard it’s very collaborative. What about their pipeline and clients?


FYI, all: McKinsey works for oil companies. I know no other firms ever would do such a thing, so wanted to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening.


Are you folks able to keep up with reading books (any genre)? If yes, how long on average does it take you to complete one?


Any suggestions on how to get an adjunct teaching role at a university. Don't need money or prestige. I enjoy teaching and gives me something to do when I retire in ~10 yrs. Many colleagues who do this are big alumni donors. My Alma mater is too far away to be practical option. I'm an expert in a very in demand field - get quoted in articles all the time but have not been able to connect with anyone in academia.


So here's a random one. I'm considering the Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 (not the larger Fold). Anybody already make that leap? If so, what do you think so far? I'm nervous about the battery life, which is reported to be quite limited.


Thoughts on Korn Ferry’s consulting practice? Partner level. Thanks In advance


What is the Partner culture at McKinsey like right now? I am considering making a lateral move.


I'm an Accenture Managing Director considering a move to Deloitte. I've got 15 - 20 yrs possibly left in my career. Any thoughts on Managing Director vs Principal?


I’m interested to hear from anyone who has stepped away from being a Partner. I am finding that I simply cannot balance work and personal life and be a good “partner” in both aspects. We’re you able to find a new career which enabled you to fulfil your ambitions whilst being a good husband/wife/parent?


Joining Accenture as a lateral MD next month. Any inputs on how to build network and connect with fellow MDs, especially in a remote setup? Are people open to collaborate with “outsiders” at a senior level, or should I expect friction with people protecting their turf and sticking to their own connections? How is the work culture like at MD level? For context, I will join strat and consulting.


Not even proud... especially given that my sleep goal isn’t too lavish in the first place. How are you folks coping?
