How is Kearney ME in terms of project and wlb vs. mbb and tier 2? I have an offer to join them from Europe and trying to decide if worth the move
In the beginning of the month I started working at a new place for a promising client, but realized the team is absolutely disorganized and no one is willing to do much. I haven’t gotten onboarding from my team and no one takes notes... is it bad to start looking again?
Interviewed for Deloitte Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got much higher offers for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but needed time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.
I’m a first year and fucked up big time. The client doesn’t know about this but a senior associate was furious. I know it’s 100% my fault but no one above me actually reviewed my work bc everyone was so busy. But then I found out the senior gave a rant about how I fucked up to another colleague. When I apologized to him, he was really salty. Since then, my heart drops every time I see his email bc I’m too scared. He is usually pretty emotional and his instructions are vague, which doesn’t help.

I am planning to move to Canada and have to give ielts.. 1) did you all give your ielts that is general training or the academic one. I know general training will suffice but checking if there are more points for academic one. E.g. same band/score in academic and GT but get more points in PR application if it's academic.

Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people. I’ve been through 3 zoom interviews & one in person. I have created a video project, email newsletter, & have done 2 case studies as requested during the interview process. I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?

My anxiety has snowballed in the past month and I’m really struggling.

I’m suddenly nervous/anxious about EVERYTHING, even when I’m not thinking about anything. It’s to the point where last night I couldn’t fall asleep bc my heart wouldn’t stop racing in nervousness but there’s nothing I could/should have been nervous for. Has anyone else experienced this?

So I’ll be receiving a ~120k USD lump sum next spring. If you were in my shoes, would you: A) Purchase a ~350K home (in Orlando) with 20% down. Remaining 50k in stock market B) Just DCA it all into market Further context: Will likely be at grad school for 1.5-2 years following that. Will have an income from scholarship stipend but it'll only cover expenses. Also unsure how that'd work with mortage application if I don't have an ability to provide proof of income.
