Didn’t Monitor Deloitte dissolve several years ago? Sure you’re joining legit company? Check for spelling errors on your offer letter please 😛

Thanks all, it’s great advice. I haven’t figured out what I want my “brand”/ industry focus to be... I hope I can figure it out quickly as I’ve heard that’s the best way to succeed

You should it’s amazing! I started my MBA in Australia actually and then finished up at Rotman. It’s a great school! My advice is definitely do your MBA in the city you want to work in!

Op, do give us an update on whether it’s monitor or S&A...i’m assuming you’re in Toronto?

I’m in Toronto! Yeah, actually my offer doesn’t specifically say monitor on it, it says strategy and business design. The group, and everyone I’ve spoken to so far still calls it monitor.. maybe it will be start to fade out! Which is disappointing because the monitor name holds more weight I thought?

Starting where?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship?

Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.
