I have a recurring thought that really brings me down and I can’t seem to get past it.
Some days I feel I am pretty good at what I do (not a leadership role) but then I see leaders in my own organization that are great at what they do and I don’t believe that I could ever get to their level of competence. Then I think of all the people my age who are appear to be doing those things and wonder we what’s wrong with me.
Have any of you felt this and how have you gotten past it?
Practically speaking how much can one grow in GDS from a CTC standpoint?
Let's say someone joined EY at 20 ctc fixed. How much can that 20 ctc grow in let's say 2 years? (Assume no promotion in those 2 years, and if it matters consider Tech consulting service line)

So I’m applying for MBA and will hopefully graduate at 26 with a degree. Lookin to find the best way possible to make my way to some sort of buy side role. I’m currently in low sized real estate PE in my hometown and I’d like to get out lol. Only problem is that my undergrad GPA sucks so an excellent or even great grad school might be out of the question. Was thinking maybe do concentration in acct and then move to FO after maybe like 2 years of an acct gig? Maybe CFA too? Is this realistic?
Could anybody help with heirarchy and their required exp in KPMG Global services.

Any creative communication ideas to reach employees that have limited email access?
We seem to do the same communications every year for open enrollment. We do an array of materials mailed to their homes, poster promotions around our campuses (both printed and digital), table tents for our cafe and vinyl decals for bathroom mirrors and office windows. Do you have a method you’ve used that works really well or is creative/innovative? Appreciate your thoughts!
I’ve heard of some account service individuals who jumped from Account Executive/Account Manager to Account Supervisor (vs AE -> SAE -> AS). From research, it’s seems like an SAE requires 3-4 YOE and an AS required 4-6 YOE. However, for those who have experienced this jump in their own career, do you feel the account sup role you landed to be more “junior level” than a “normal” AS role normally is? Did your team feel adequately supported, or should they have hired a more experience AS?

Saw a job posting for a new dept in a company I want to work for-I am shallowly acquainted with the owner from 15yrs ago and we have messaged each other 2x on LinkedIn over the years. He is a multi billionaire. I am thinking about reaching out to him to ask about the department with the intent to be considered for hire.
Would you consider it rude or impertinent for someone with that shallow of a connection to you to reach out to talk about working for you? I'm unsure if there are SES issues.
Partners. Do team members just come and go from your perspective? Feeling very disengaged and demotivated… do leaders actually care to talk people through these low points in their careers or is this something we need to figure out on our own? Want to talk it out but feeling like a burden more than anything.
Partners - what is your advice to be successful as an SD? Starting to have a bit of imposter syndrome set in.
For partners at Big4/ ACN/ other T2 firms:
Does your WLB improve after you make partner but stress levels increase since you are responding for revenue and for people. But in terms of delivery it’s the M/SM/D handling the work and the long hours?
Is that an unfair assessment? Is it a false goal to aspire to to become a partner?
Job sharing in professional services is becoming more common. Would it make sense to offer job sharing at the partner level? Benefits a) employee retention (including women 30+ that often choose family over Partner track), b) more available Partner spots which increases retention, c) work life balance, d) 2 vs 1 partner tapping into their network to sell, e) 50% comp but ideally 6 months off. Why wouldn’t it work? Trying to hear different perspectives for and against partner job sharing?

That wouldn’t scare me on its own but I would definitely ask the question, and would look for a response that makes sense.
Nice, yeah I have a good story to tell and have made all moves for a right reason. My ambition is to be one of the best consultants in my field and have worked in the same competency (data and analytics) across the 3 firms. Would I be expected to bring in a client or two when I try to move to senior levels (M or SM) at other firms?
Always helpful to have that client, but showing you have grown client revenues and helped client profitability works, too. And that you have brought in work rather than it always brought to you is good.
I might make another switch due to personal reasons but want to definitely stay in a firm long term in my next one.
