Delayering at scale question: can one of my BCG fellows help me figure out how you guys delayer an org? I get the high level approach... but how do you mechanically compress layers as part of this analysis???
Went to the wrong hotel because the client books all travel and I was too used to going to the same one for 6 months. Oops. Also Hilton where the hell is my mini fridge? #marriot4life
Managers, what it takes to be a good seller? Be friends with the client? Keep calling them everyweek/month? What does it mean?
Not traveling to my client site for the next two weeks. Feels like I'm about to be on vacation lol
Anyone have Chase Private Client? Worth the hassle of a banker contacting you and them pimping overly expensive mutual funds?
Turned in two weeks notice so I can take a public accounting job with better hours, better pay, more responsibility, and more client interaction. I'm almost scared to ask if there's a catch.
New to my role, and a junior was assigned a task by the project manager and he has literally contributed nothing despite continued follow ups by me. Best way to handle it?
The Mazda spots. So bad. So cringe. I feel like they ripped the copy from those old “motivational” posters. I hope HOPE the client wrote these.
On bench and got called for a federal project. Sounds interesting but should I avoid it as an entry level analyst?
Had a feedback meeting today where we also kicked off the project the feedback was on. Then I asked for a brief, cause you know, need that, and found out the feedback doc was the brief. Mind blown. 🤯
MBB folks - When you're working with a Big 4 team on the same project, what is your perception and expectation?
I work at an agency that asks women, especially women of color, to attend client meetings to "show face." Does this happen at other agencies? How offended should I be?
Just as an idea, this new Lincoln Project ad is bananas. To make Trump the audience for an anti-Trump ad—to tell him to be MORE paranoid....to understand the thing he’d hate the most is other people making money, or looking good on TV....to try to make him eat himself from the inside....it’s kind of evil but so unexpected. Slicing an artery rather than swinging with a sledgehammer. https://youtu.be/bk6d4TgO2NY
Folks where is the best place in Chicago on wed night to take a client for a lounge drink and food? Good vibes but not too loud??
Best MBA program for broad Atlanta exit opps? Just starting to consider it and that’s where I want to end up
I was telling my 7 year-old about an upcoming shoot and asked him if he thought it was cool that I worked on commercials. His response: Yeah, but it would be cooler if you worked at a toy store or an ice cream shop. 😂😂😂
Anyone here have their (non-lawyer) significant other get a great job offer in a state where you are not licensed? How did you handle it? Break up? Take another bar exam? Long distance?
For 2019 I deposited money directly into Roth IRA. Did not know about backdoor Roth IRA. I have not done my taxes yet. Is it too late to switch to traditional to lower taxable income? The gains are minimal thanks for COVID and Betterment’s slow recovery. Thinking maybe I can switch from traditional and back to Roth once taxes are done?
Glad not part of D and the toxic culture anymore. High performer laid off 60 days ago for no reason of mine and ready for next opportunity. Good luck everyone at D
Former Congressman Ron Paul suffered a stroke a short while ago. One of the last conservative minds. Hoping for a swift recovery.
At what stage in one’s career is it appropriate to ask the company to sponsor executive coaching? Really want some direct support but not sure if it would be out of line and if I should just buy it myself.
But when you forced your mistress to have an abortion, it was different, right? https://news.yahoo.com/trump-proposes-born-alive-executive-170022294.html
Anyone in the strategy program at Capital One? Seems pretty interesting. Looking for some insight as far as WLB, comp, etc
I had two recruiters today reschedule a meeting. And this is the second time rescheduling. Honesty, not sure what value recruiters bring. Is this common now? Is it hard to have respect for people’s time and their schedule? Reschedule once I can understand. But twice is just stupidity. I hope AI wipes out all bad recruiters who don’t give af. Sorry for the vent. Maybe it’s just my bad luck then.
Posting part 2: What is an excuse industry that you love doing work for or has made a positive impact in your career?
