Im lucky enough to have the funds to pay for my MBA outright. Is there any reason I should say I’m going to try to get a loan on my app? Should I consider getting a loan? Does this affect my chances at a scholarship?
Im a M at a Big 4 firm working M&A strategy. 10+ YOE, no MBA. I got here with an engineering degree. 200k+ TC. I’m considering a MBA, in fact, I got accepted to a top 20 school and will start part time in just over a month. Is it necessary at this point? Im already doing the work and learning what I need on the job. Do I need to put the stamp on it and make it official?
Okay, every time my 1.5 year old gets hiccups they sound like he is about to vomit. Kinda like a cat with a hairball... anyone experience this weird thing? or is it just my kid cause i dont see anything about it with googling.
Any insights on the current salary to expect as a senior account supervisor/senior account manager in health at a PR/Comms agency? I know salaries have grown with demand over the past year so not sure what to ask for. Top ten agency, DC.
The recent most billable hours post, inspired me. What is your longest billable day? Mine was 56 hours straight with no break—and the partner was more than a jerk when I was saying no more at the 30 hour point. That was two 24 hour billable days back to back on my time sheet and on the bill, a 360 hour month, and 650 aggregated for two months. And it is one reason (of so many reasons) why this job can suck so much! At least I got a good bonus...

I saw this article in a page I’m learning through from mynea360.org As someone learning to recognize my own white fragility in order to build racial literacy skill & stamina for a sustainable future, I found it very worthwhile. She doesn’t end on a cheerleading note. For support, I see anti-racism addressed in my health care plan (‘mystrength’ app...stress/ ‘you need to have that conversation’) as well as within anti-discrimination online trainings and state & national union webinars. https://educationpost.org/if-you-really-want-to-make-a-difference-in-black-lives-change-how-you-teach-white-kids/
Investment return from Jan to June (1st half of 2020) was about 40%. However, if I didn’t actively trade, my return would have been 300% during this same period. Great lesson for myself! Share ur lessons learned during 1H 2020
Is there a recognized credential or association for corporate or business strategy? Other than an MBA that is.
Currently interviewing for a role at ACN, passed the HR screen and the first Skills interview. From what I gathered it’s another 30 min skills interview then a video call with an MD. Is this the normal process ? This seems.. so efficient ? Accenture
Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
What to do if I suspect I’ve been given a different pto policy from my coworkers? I accrue 10 hours of pto at the end of each month of my employment. This was a very fine detail hidden until the end of my negotiation process. I’m regretting not pushing back on it. Do you know of others at your company that have different policies than you do? I’m a start up full of highly experienced people (I’m the least) so I imagine it’s more likely to happen at a smaller firm?
I feel hopeless on my project and I cry regularly as soon as I hang up at least one call a day. (Woo work from home!)
If I already have United silver status (Marriott status match), is it still worth it to get the United explorer card? Up to 70k bonus, $0 intro fee then $95 after (will downgrade after a year to Gateway $0 fee card)
Can you get a raise and promotion out of cycle?
What type of job boards ninche or not do you find to be the most useful for the talent you hire and what type of roles are they best for?
I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
