Be prepared for your "coaching" to be rejected and met with suspicion. You'll need to make it very clear, repeatedly, that you are not allowed to report to Admin on the teachers you are helping. You will have to earn their trust. Try to find a teacher who has a good reputation on campus and win her over as your ally who will put in a good word for you. Sort of like "social proofing."

Hi 👋🏻 I’m new here! For people working in big 4 risk assurance, how many clients do you generally juggle at a time and how many hours do you typically work in a week? I just started a few months ago in an IA role for a company after working in external audit. I like the work, but it’s just not a great culture fit and I’m thinking of boomeranging back to public but for IA to get more of that experience.

Newly promoted experienced hire SC making $113k, 10 YOE (switched industries). Got an offer from TCS in an Advisory practice (not the tech sweatshop stuff that I keep seeing people mention). Base salary is $190k and in TCS equivalent of a M role. Downside to taking the salary hike and boomeranging back to D in ~2 years? FYI - I have 2 kids, so that kind of pay raise is kind of a big deal.

I have my MHA and upon graduation I saw myself working for a large hospital/ healthcare org in a more administrative role. Ended up in consulting despite my desires and am regretting it almost 2 yrs later. Not sure where to start looking since I would take a pay cut with many admin roles or I don’t have enough experience yet for higher paying roles. Trying to determine if switching to industry is worth the pay cut or if anyone has any other suggestions of jobs to look towards, please lmk

Something isn’t quite adding up for me, though I haven’t been in consulting long so it may be my ignorance. People say MBB has great exit opps, but none of the “sexy” ones thrown around (e.g., PE, PM) directly translate from consulting, and the those that do (internal consulting / corp strat) aren’t met with much enthusiasm. What am I missing?
