What office



Chi city. Networking is a given. I'm referring more along the lines of how to start the convo. Talk to RP first or confirm first with the new vertical that they would accept me, etc.

I'd network within insurance first and have them pull you over. Do you know someone in insurance? Lots of us in Chicago.

Don't know anyone in the insurance vertical to start with is my problem. I feel like I don't want to just start shooting out resumes

I would be transparent about your goals with your RP, HR and those you network with in your current and future vertical. Next you should work with Demand and those who you network with in Insurance to get staffed on insurance projects. The new vertical (FS) will want to see that you are able to perform at or beyond level on those engagements before considering making the headcount move.

Most likely getting an offer from a big 4 this week (M level). A current client wants to bring me in, but I need SM level to meet my TC expectations. They're working on getting the role leveled up, but it hasn't happened yet. Would likely accept the client role over B4 as long as base is within $40k (higher bonus, better retirement plan, limited travel, and equity involved). Ideas on how to handle?

Evaluating a job offer (yay!)
I have 8 years of HR experience, no college degree, and no HR certification. Titles held have been HR Specialist, HR Administrator, HR Generalist, Associate HR Manager, and most recently, HR Director for only four months (toxic). Geographically speaking, salaries are not very high. I was offered $45k in an hourly role as a site HR rep for a hotel with about 50 employees in a bustling college town. Should I try to negotiate more pay? Any input is appreciated.


Is anyone actually happy in corporate BigLaw?? The amount of money one can make is infinite, but time is not. I have a friend who is an ophthalmologist, makes over $300k +/year with 45 hour work weeks, very little weekend work, plenty of time with family. I’m a corporate 5th year, make less than that, work all the time (1900 hours) which isn’t even considered that high, not much job stability like similar high-paying professions, e.g., doctor, specialized medicine etc…How do y’all cope??


I am starting an EMBA at an M7 school this summer. How feasible would it be to move laterally to MBB? What would that process look like and when would be a right time to make such a move? For context, I am an experienced hire at PwC and was brought at same level/comp as an MBA hire. I’m expecting to earn MBA in 2022
