I got pinged by an ACN recruiter for your security strategy center of excellence. If you're at risk, consider switching to security. Plus 'it's the future' ;)

A3 - untrue. They are cutting high performers if they're not staffed.

Yup. I think chargeability is the defining metric and then you can be given a stay of execution if a partner vouches for you.

Switch to the security practice, it's my understanding we're still hiring

First years safe you guys think? I'm at 70 percent chargeability and have been at the company for around 10 months. Strategy Analyst here.

A5 they're cutting anyone on the bench longer than 8 weeks. You'd think they'd only cut low performers but that's not what's happening.

@A5. My 10th week on the bench right now. First year analyst in Strategy.

like

I would assume they are cutting low performers?

We re-organized a few times in the past 2 years and hired too many analysts / consultants in the excitement. Just a return to norm, nothing to freak out about as long as you perform well

Haha what's that? Im in security and would like to get on a security strategy project

They're cutting at least up to manager from what I've seen, regardless of performance. The bench is so deep so they're making us pay.

I am sure they are starting with below average performers. No reason to worry if you aren't and are staffed

A5 why wouldn't they cut low performers who aren't staffed first?...

Plenty of those

I currently work in a tax associate role in public accounting for about a year now. I want to transition into a more finance related role long term. I currently have an MBA in finance and am working towards the CPA (optimally will have before a career pivot). Does anyone have any tips or insight into a switch like this?

is LTI a good firm to work for in the cloud consulting department ?

I have an offer at another consulting firm, but have been reached out by my target industry exit opp for a role with comparable salary + more benefits. Problem is role doesn’t post until Sunday, but they are looking to expedite my interview and start date is Nov 1. Is it reasonable to defer the existing offer for two week or more? I really want to give this industry role a shot but also not lose out on the offer at hand if things don’t pan out next two weeks. Any advice on how to message?

I’m a senior in the FDD practice at b4 and doing fine. Will probably be promoted next year. I recently got admitted to the UT Austin MS in Computer Science program. The thought of giving up my good incomes and starting over again made me feel uneasy. I’m excited though since after 4 years trying, I am accepted to a good MSCS program with no formal CS education. Any word of wisdom? Would you do it in terms of building up long term career capital? or should i just keep grinding my not-too-bad job?
