I wish I was at your level so I can leave right away. I just made senior so I’m trying to stick it out for one more busy season...

Newly promoted senior leaving before that busy season is sometimes seen as an associate to recruiters, or so I’m told by my recruiting buddies.

Leave if you're tired of audit and have some savings. If you want to stay in the same field and it's the people/environment that have you miserable, then you have to be careful about when you go. But if you don't need the money and you know this isn't what you want to do, there's no time better than the present to put in that notice

Why firm is “begging” for employees? I mean firm is now paying more and adding more benefits to show what can employee get and try to keep or attract them. Aren't they know that in a romantic relationship, the more you say “please don't leave me, I will do anything for you ”, the easier the other party to control you? and you will not get respect? I'm an employee wants more, just a question to discuss about the firm's strategy.

Strategies for transitioning from public sector to commercial consulting given current role?

I've been working in a public sector consulting role that seems more ops focuses and have excelled to this point. However, public sector has no urgency, I get 0 travel, we're disorganized, and I see no progression.

Beginning to plan my hopes for a lateral move to commercial consulting after I hit the 1-year mark and hoping to hear about similar moves or recommendations.

Thanks in advance

Hello Fishes,
Hope everyone is doing well!

I'm currently looking for a job change, having a total experience of 10 years in Motion Graphics, 2D Animation, Video Editing & Graphic Design. I'm working as an Assistant Design Managar at my current organization.

Can anyone help me guide about the roles at Gartner which suits my profile. Also it will be a great help if you can refer me too.

i need a some perspective about the big 4 and mbb. i’m a senior undergrad recruiting for consulting and this cycle didn’t go as well as planned. i had an interview w mckinsey (no offer) and never heard back from rest of big 4/mbb. got an offer from UHG which is not bad at all but can’t help but feel hopeless that i didn’t get where i wanna be. i feel like i’m obsessing over the name/prestige of these firms even though ik there’s so much more out there than the name of your company and i’m young

Hi 👋 Nice to have this bowl here! I’m a CPA with 5 years experience in tax who recently realized that I can’t stand doing compliance anymore. Decided to get my masters in CIS and Data Analytics to pivot into tax tech originally but I am afraid I won’t use all my newly learned skills if I stick with tax technology in Big4. Do you code at all in tax tech? Or is it lostly macros and Alteryx?
