Moved up to strategy. Essentially wanted to build a strong data driven mindset but leveraged my MBA to pivot into the strategic side of things.

I moved out of a data analytics scientist role at a big 3 automaker into strategy consulting. (the analytics job was great btw). I really wasn’t looking to move out of my analytics role but my requirements were more so focused on being able to progress quickly and that still allowed me to use my analytics skills. It’s honestly the best of both worlds not being known as just a number cruncher.

I did the opposite of moving from a corporate strategy team to analytics, where I’m at now. I find the projects not quite as interesting but the lifestyle and people are much better. I figure I’d be able to make a move back if the right opportunity presents, but I’m enjoying analytics.

This is so true. Projects were long and slow, but I didn’t take any work home and the hours were great!

I was already in strategy in both consulting and an “elite” corp strat group. Not sure I would classify it as “up” =]

Nice! Wya now

Hello amazing people! - I recently transitioned into a "Senior" CSM role and I was hoping to get some direction with regards to continued career growth. I've navigated politics and growth decently thus far. But, it would be great to get a real framework built to continue towards a "Director" or "VP" role in the next 2-3 years.

Do any of you have suggestions or contacts in the career coach arena? Or any suggestions in general on how to get to the "next level"? I'm in Automotive FinTech / SaaS

Currently job hunting. I know a few retired C-level executives who tell me that they would hire me at the director level in pretty much any role (despite currently being an individual contributor) because I'm extremely driven, a life-long learner, a natural leader, and deeply educated in diverse fields (PhD in engineering and MBA in analytics). However, I can't seem to land a senior role. How do I convince an executive to take a gamble on me based on my past success and strong future potential?

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.
