Hello! I’m new to agency side (previously marketing on client side for 8 yrs) and trying to figure out my career path in marketing at agencies. Any agency marketers in NYC available for a quick ...
I am working for 12-14 hours a day in a non client facing role at one of the big 4. What are some of the exit opportunities I can think of in the next 1-2 years? I want to have a 9-6 job with decent pay.
Anyone here with knowledge of EY’s M&A group? Comp, hours, project types, etc. Asking for Senior Associate / Manager level
I have been assigned 50% staffing but my Project manager expects me to put in 100% time as I am not staffed on any other project. Is it fair for him to expect this? I am upset as this affects my utility rate.
Any recommendations on a carry on bag with a trolley sleeve for me to slip on over my roller carry on? A nice larger size one that can fit both client and acn laptop?
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
What I want to do: reach through the screen and strangle the client who is being an obnoxious ass while screaming a nonstop stream of swear words What I am doing: "Hey! Happy Friday! Gonna grab some patio beers later? Anyways, just hoping we could get some alignment on this issue" What is this job doing to me.
My skin isn't the best and with WFH - I have been doing the basics : moisturiser and sunscreen everyday which has really helped. Next year, I'm likely to be back full time in the office and on client site - and I want to do the bare minimum makeup wise. Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)

What’s the most amount of submissions you’ve had to give to client before they accepted a deliverable? I’m on version 15 now and I feel like I’m being played with 😡. Make me feel better 🐠
Do you know of any companies that are similar to Toptal or BrainTrust? Basically where once you get in, you don't necessarily have to go through full interview rounds for each new client? I'm not referring to the big consulting firms, but more for independents.
Does anyone have examples of their invoice template? I’m working a part-time contract for a company, and they do want my time tracked by project. Hoping to not spend time making from scratch.
How long did it take you to find a good exit opportunity? Currently want out of EY as I was put on a long term project with a bad client and working terrible hours (80+ hr including weekends) for a couple of months already. I've put on 50+ apps and been denied to some opportunities already without even a chance at interviewing. Losing hope...
Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
Have you ever seen a deal die because you forgot to note the attached is being circulated to your client simultaneously and as such, remains subject to their ongoing review and comment in all respects?
Is Informatica powercenter dead? I know informatica stopped providing powercenter for new customers. I am getting a project in powercenter. Shall I go ahead and join in that project or wait for other projects
Are consultants only seemingly more capable (at times) because we dedicate all our client-facing time on a single project vs. juggling multiple projects? All my client's leadership teams seem like a mess but I think it's just due to their lack of opportunity to focus on anything for long enough to know what's going on. Am I thinking about this completely wrong?
How do you guys construct your cover letters? I’ve been applying to a bunch of places with no response, so I really don’t know what works. Been trying to find ways to make it stand out. Go into how I love their work (even when I think it’s meh) and speak to more than what’s on my resume. In your opinion, is this more of the time to just talk business - my accomplishments, experience, and why that helps?
What is it about MBB consultants that makes you all different than Big 4 consultants from a talent perspective and more qualified (to clarify: interviewed for all 3 but didn't get an offer; at D now)
Do recruiters tend to ghost candidates a lot in the consulting industry? I've had 2 recruiters in the past week from top 4 firms approach me and cancel the initial interview a day prior and never reach out again.
just bc I saw some uneducated BCG consultant go off on affirmative action today ...affirmative action/diversity hiring doesnt tip the scale in favor of minorities, it balances the scale
Why do so many people want to work at MBB? Is it the money, prestige, exit opps? I guess I’m entering the stage of life where WLB is most important to me...
How long after starting a new gig can you request PTO? Started this month but planning a trip in June.
Comp question - what should a B4 Senior with a CPA, CFF, CFE, and a MBA with 4 years forensic exp (D&T) and 6+ years non-forensic exp (industry) in NYC and DC markets expect in this current climate?
Thoughts on exiting to a $200M company (top line), reporting to the CEO & COO... director strategic initiatives.. pay is similar to MBB Manager comp. can you ever go back to large F50 if you take these roles ?
My firm is having everyone start back to work in the office. WFH has been so great, don’t get why it has to end now.
So KPMG changed it benefits, 6% of you salary (not just base pay) contribution to 401K without any contribution required by employees and 3 years of vesting period. So you will get the 6% even if you don’t put anything into 401K. So proud of KPMG

To be FTM here, baby is due in September. What kind of support i’d need in initial few months? Both me and my husband will be on parental leave for 5 months and 3 months respectively plus will have some family members staying with us for initial 2-4 weeks non of them have managed newborns before. I’ll be hiring someone to cook for us or at-least help with cooking. Do I need nanny specialized in newborn care? if yes should I go with full time or part time in the first 3 months?
Thoughts on Accenture? How do they compare to EY and Deloitte? Have offers from all 3 but not sure which one to choose. Would ideally like to get my MBA in a few years and get into MBB. Is there a better/more prestigious choice between the 3? TIA
Is it okay to tell your boss you aren’t feeling well and need to take a sick day because of medication side effects? We are going into the office later in the week and I don’t want her to think I have something contagious. Started new meds and the side effects are intense today so I’m just off my game and need to log off, but not sure if that’s inappropriate or TMI.
