Hi everyone. I come from delivery/project program management background and am trying to pivot to data & analytics. I know I will never be as good as other technical folks in this field but I know I can more than manage delivery and PM work. Do Managers/SMs in D&A typically have a strong data background? Trying to see what kind of skills I should be focusing on to make this pivot. Thanks.

I worked as a technical PM for a medium-sized adtech company in NYC in charge of 2 technical teams, and the business intelligence team.
On Thursday I was informed by the lead PO and HR that leadership had decided that the project management office was no longer necessary for the company and all three of us, the director and the two technical PMs, were being let go. None of us were given any notice.
They offered me 2 weeks of severance pay and I negotiated it to 3.

Just got an offer for Strategy Manager at ACN, coming from years in the tech/startup world. What’s your sense on the trend of business travel moving forward? It seems like there might be less client travel since consultants have proven the ability to work remotely and it allows clients to save $$$ on T&E. Thoughts from your experiences?
Tbh, I just start vigorously nodding my head on Zoom when I see the partner doing so. Idk what’s happening in these client calls

I am a second year/incoming third year associate at an AMLAW20 firm. I am in the project finance team and I really like what I do, but I can’t bear to work more than 12 hours a day. I feel my body rejecting it and I loathe myself for putting myself through this. Any thoughts from folks who might feel the same way and who’ve pulled through longer? Also curious to hear from like minded folks who’ve got out of big law and interested to know what choices have been made!
Senior consultants (and others at similar levels) - how many things do you usually work on in a quarter beyond project work? (E.g., internal initiatives, RFPs, recruitment)
I’ve got an offer to join a startup I really like (currently less than 50 fte). Proved product market fit, soon to expand internationally. Will join in senior product manager role, with view to become head of product in a year. Pay is 40-50k per annum lower. Also got an offer from MBB top tier consulting firm, pay is nearly double first year (including a sign-on bonus). Are there people which have had a similar decision to make and can share me their thoughts? FYI: no equity in the offer
Do you guys still get paid working over your usual salaried hours? Like as long as I can get billable hours I get paid for all those hours. For example if I commute to a client site or even work 12 hours at a client site I can still get paid my hourly rate.

We are a same-sex couple pursuing surrogacy.
My spouse works for a Fortune 5 company. This company says it stands for equity and inclusion and it offers as an employee benefit coverage for fertility-related medical expenditures.
Specifically, this employer’s fertility benefits provide up to $25,000 for fertility expenditures to heterosexual couples, and $0 to same-sex couples.
How do we contest this inequitable employer policy?
My main goal is to create an income apart from my full time job. Just keep the cash flow going! So instead of starting a small business all by myself is there any way I could invest on small business like maybe a gas station, convenience store etc

Anyone work at Cooper University Healthcare? I’ve been trying to find reviews regarding what the work/life balance is, as well as the overall work environment.
So I am trapped in a job where I do all the work my boss is supposed to be doing. Eg I did 40 pages annual HR Report highly praised by the Board and my name wasn’t on it. My boss contributed zero except presenting it. My internal mentor believes I should just wait my boss out, but IDK.
