Am I correct in noticing that in Consulting, strategy is the sexy role that pays the most but in industry having technical skills and being an engineer has higher TC and better job security. I have a background in engineering but went into strategy consulting after school and I’ve been starting to wonder if I made the right choice. Thoughts?
I heard LTI never fires people. The current project I'm in is not at all good. Neither is the team nor my manual testing role where I dont use no tool or technology whatsoever😑. I fear this will impact my future/immediate job prospects (2 years of nothing/ dumb work) If I exit my project and sit on bench, is there a specific period of time or procedure, before they fire me? I was hoping I could use my time on bench to prepare for a new role. Please advise.. Thanks Larsen & Toubro Infotech
My parents are Indian and live in the UK. I’m in my early 30s and am tired of the constant drama and childish behaviour they exhibit. Most recently, they travelled abroad during COVID tier-2 restrictions, and when they got COVID being back home - they didn’t tell me. My father leaves family-wide WhatsApp groups, and I know my younger brother is in their ear 24/7. I can’t picture how to have a relationship with them going forward. The thought of them visiting fills me with dread.
Is there an app to find out security line duration? I entered the sky priority line and been here for 20 minutes. Just saw the guy who entered the regular line ~5 minutes after me exit security.@ATL
Sr. Writer/ACD in LA laid off twice this year. Horrible luck. Previously worked at Ad Age A-List agency and trying to get back in the big game.
Anomaly, TBWA, R/GA, Etc. Anyone have a lead?
BCG - brother in law got offered a project leader position on west coast. They've offered $205k base. Acceptable?
Had a final interview with EY for data strategy position last week. Followed up today, but no response. What do you all think?
Would you move from a boutique to a Big4 (not D) for title bump and $60k more in base? Similar enough role to current boutique, but will probably work 10-20% more hrs/week at B4. Culture seems comparable...I feel bad for leaving boutique bc of the internal relationships I’ve built w/ folks...
I have a question-
If a company offers you for cross-training to enhance your skill set, offering you a position to transition from being a Recruitment Specialist to a Sales Specialist- Would that be a good thing? If yes, then why and how would it benefit me into career path
We’ve been a little safer with Covid since we have a newborn and we have even been avoiding gatherings with larger groups of vaccinated people indoors. However my parents-in-law have been making comments about how we’re overly cautious and it’s causing issues in my own marriage – it’s giving me major anxiety. Any advice?
How do you get out of a project management role and into a product management role or anything else? What do you search for when trying to find a new job?
Should I take an associate role at an emerging growth equity fund investing in B2B software and other venture-growth opportunities. It would be 2 partners and me.

Got an offer from a boutique consulting firm for an SM role for a base between 160-170k and bonus of ~10-15k (expected total package around 180k), does this seem reasonable for that level?
What’s going on FB friends,
I am contemplating a move to industry working at a VC, Tax Director role east coast. Looks like it will be primarily overseeing compliance with some aspect of advising on structures etc. There is another tax reporting head above me.
The potential comp is the low 200k with a 10% bonus (still higher than what I am making). I feel this is pretty low for VC standards but maybe my standards are also too high. I have generally seen 25% bonus with carry.
When you look at the total compensation and the wealth building when evaluating an offer - what do you include besides base, bonus, stock and ESPP/401k contributions?
If a freelance AD’s spirit screams while filling out Excel social content calendars in the middle of a co-working space, and no one has invited them to the Slack network, did they even make a sound?
Random but does anybody have access to Dall-E 2 yet? I’m on the waitlist but eager to try it out for a side project I have going on.
Anyone used Uniconnect or Matrix SIM cards while traveling to USA from India? Are they any good? Any better options?
What would be a good gift for a female friend? We are very close and she’s pretty much my best friend in the US. Last year I got her L’Occitane en Provence gift sets. Short in ideas this year 🤦🏻♀️
Struggling w/a C on my team. We discuss what needs to be done, he agrees & has great attitude, but doesn't deliver. Want to give him room and really don't want to micromanage. But losing trust fast
hey geniuses: United staff weren't the ones dragging the passenger off the plane, that job is outsourced to airport police/security
So EY sold its consulting business to Capgemini 15 years ago and 15 years later they rebranded advisory to consulting and the consulting group is now 15 times bigger than Capgemini's.

I somehow managed to step in my own poop just now. I live alone, and do not have pets. Yes, I am potty trained, have a western toilet, and indoor plumbing. And I was barefoot too!
The week is off to a great start!
Assistant Producer salaries in NYC? What if you’ve got a few years of somewhat transferable experience in a different dept? Room to ask for more?
