I feel very stuck in doing ocm work but would like to get more technical. I’m struggling with finding the support to move within the company and when applying to other jobs I only hear back from other change roles. At this point do you all think it would be better to go to a small no name firm where I’m a lot more likely to branch into something else (interested in anything else, esp data), stay where I am and have more conversations, or move to another big consulting company &move within?

Re: Referral for Bloomberg

My company is moving but I need to stay in NYC for family reasons. I searched everywhere to find a similar culture to where I am now and I feel like I found that at Bloomberg. Right before Year-End I completed an interview for an HR Role but it’s been a standstill since. We left the call talking about the next phases of interviews so I was hopeful!

Would a referral help kick start this again?

Advise please. I’m finishing my 3rd year in a mid-size law firm in the corporate group. When I started with my firm, I enjoyed the work and truly saw myself making partner there. But the longer I’ve been here, the more toxic (and sexist) the firm gets. I’m looking to lateral (and have a few offers already), but I’m not sure if the new firms will end up being any better. Any thoughts on whether I’m being weighed down by the toxic environment at current firm or simply need to get out of firm life?
