Am I expected to ask specific questions about things like utilization, performance metrics, rollover PTO etc etc. during interviews? After 2.5 YOE I feel like I still don’t know all those answers at Deloitte and definitely didn’t know enough about consulting or post college work to ask before starting my first job. Alternatively are employee handbooks leaked/available online anywhere? Can’t find them and am interviewing with KPMG and EY
Negotiating comp and hoping to source some advice, 9 yoe most recently pivoting from consulting to a pre IPO tech co. Their starting offer was TC of ~300k, does this sound reasonable or should I be negotiating harder? Finance & strategy role
I received an offer for 30k more than I’m making now at Deloitte for Cyber Risk.. what’s the main reason Advisory is a bad choice? Is a Senior Consultant role in this practice a bad place to be from a career growth perspective? I don’t understand the practice structure and am unsure if I’m being misled. I also don’t want to be doing only security assessments, if that’s what the work is like. 😅
How is mindspace work culture Mindtree Someone just reached out for a tech arch position..
Out of office set for the next week and a half; time for some family Vacation in VA then off to Orlando!
Need advice and pep talk because I’m certain I have chronic imposter syndrome :( Background on me, I have about 6 years of work experience post college but have gone through many companies because of layoffs and/or reorgs. With that, I’ve bounced a lot with different industries and have done different roles for a year max. My current role is about to be my longest (thank goodness, hitting about 2 years) but I feel like I’m not a SME in anything but I feel embarrassment for myself (Cont.)
Desi Consultants!! - who all are thinking of hiring Sima Taparia (after watching Indian matchmaking on Netflix) for finding your future significant other?
🐠🐠 Wondering how you'd perceive a person in a C-Suite or leadership position: - typically a smooth talker - acts like he was struck by lightning when things don't go his way, though it shouldn't have been a surprise - claims to have low EQ when he causes misunderstandings, yet doesn't take action to resolve it, or get help to raise his EQ - says he doesn't know anything about current events (or ones from a few years ago) or keeps up with news because he only has Netflix, no cable & such
If i don't plan on staying in the US long term (maybe ~3 years), should I bother with a 401k contribution? Granted the matches are nice to have, but what about early withdrawal fee's / vesting time?
What firms should I be considering for life science if I want to consider a step away from ZS (AC level)? MBB aside, are there any that I should really keep in mind for consideration of a bump in comp, prestige, culture, or exit opportunities?
Just wanted to remind my fellow creatives that agencies need us more than we need them. It’s important to be respectful, but don’t be afraid to speak up, push back, ask for a raise, ask for time off or quit. The value we bring to the table is fundamental, very hard to replace and is often overlooked by us and leadership. Agencies everywhere are in overdrive mode and creatives are being overworked to keep the engine moving. Make sure you’re compensated properly for it.
How’s FB’s in-house agency Creative X? Keep seeing posts on LinkedIn that they’re hiring. But I know agencies like W+K, Ogilvy, etc., do FB work as well.
Starting at Accenture strategy this week ( manager level). Start date was delayed 4 weeks due to the onboarding team being busy. I have a vacation from 8/10-8/18 which was booked months ago. How do I best handle this to avoid starting off on the wrong foot with my new group?
I am in process of moving over to KPMG. Curious how the vacation/holiday policy is there?
Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!
I know we aren’t doing vacationing anymore, but did you guys ever dread doing a family trip? Like the vacation itself becomes stressful?

Hi moms. I’m looking for tips for transitioning my baby from slow flow nipple to medium flow nipple. She is 12 weeks old, a few days short of 3 month. We thought she was ready for medium flow nipples a week ago and started using them. But there were a good amount of spill (any amount of breast milk wasted makes me 😞; there were more milk in her mouth than she can swallow, and milk end up overflowing out of her mouth). And she threw up most of the milk after one night feeding.
