I used to think “Go back to your home country” was an insult. Now I actually think it’s good advice. I don’t fit into the bro culture here.
First time leading a team at a client with 0 women in their ranks expect the VP. I find myself getting nervous at the big table and a number of other vendor reps (cont...)
Call my manager earlier today and having a melt down. Somehow the manager still convinces me to stay on and continue the project. Amazing 😭

Is the work culture at Amazon really that bad?
Which project management tools would you recommend to keep track of multiple different work streams and action items across 8-10 ongoing projects? I don’t want to use this collaboratively with other stakeholders but mainly for me to track as the PM. Are there any tools except “Planner” that can be used with MS Teams? Thank you @

First time needing to edgarize a document (my practice is ECVC and have a client doing a Reg CF raise). Am I right in assuming that it’s just converting a Word doc or PDF doc into an SEC-specific format? Any recs on service providers? Would love a cloud-based self-serve tool and understanding of how pricing is supposed to work.
Can anyone provide me with the charge code for 3 hours of daydreaming? Make sure it is a client chargeable code.

I am a developer and one of my performance metrics is "Utilization" (billable hours). I am finding it hard to meet this goal (get enough work from my project team), accomplish all my admin tasks, and take vacation/holidays. Any advice?
EY strategy folks: What is your group like in terms of the work you do, duration of a project, competency amongst peers, and pay structure? This is for FSO NYC.

Are there any examples of former Black consultants making it to C-Suite at a company? In business school, they say MBB is the C-suite factory but has this been true for Black people in the C-suite?
Fishes, looking for recommendations on growing business development and sales skills. Finding and growing pipelines, establishing marketing materials, closing sales, and similar for services. I have on the job experience within consulting but never any formal training or education. Entering a new role where I'll need to build organizational capabilities from scratch. Any recommendations on programs, certificates, courses, books, or other similar ideas would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
I switched two years ago from regional real estate/energy to a local small, but established residential real estate practice. While I’ve gained so much practical experience and run my own book here, I want to shift to a non-traditional remote role in real estate but keep getting turned down. I have strong credentials but I’m worried this small firm experience is killing my marketability to large companies.
Out of curiosity -what skills would you say new hires should focus on acquiring to best position themselves for exit opps?
Sigh. Why do I *always* have to be the one to remind the team to ensure there's diversity in storyboards? 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏿♀️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏿♂️🤦🏽♀️
Hi 🐟🐟🐟🐟, What is the role and responsibilities of Associate 2 Designation in PWC SDC, What ia the YOE normally for this role and salary range ? PI provide your inputs 😊
I can’t tell if I’m being too sensitive or my seniors are really passive aggressive towards me all the time. Like I can’t lash out at micro-aggression, what am I supposed to say? Treat me the same way as you treat the other staff? My working environment has taken a toll on my mental health and my desire to stay in audit. And idk if it’s my fault or I’m just in a really toxic environment. I haven’t really been on other teams.
What does a manager with 8-10 years in Big 4 consulting experience (5-6 years in FSI) make in the market today?
What are realistic career paths for BDRs that do not want to be an account executive? I have been a BDR for 4 years now and looking to get out of sales but unsuccessful so far . I’ve interviewed for social media roles, BDR manager roles , always falling short on what they are looking for. Beginning to think I’ll just have to accept a career that I hate that brings me no passion and try for AE role. My ideal role would be in product marketing or social. Any advice?
Any Transfer Pricing or ITS attorneys here who successfully made the jump from big 4 to big law? Any advice?

How we show up by mia birdsong. Im 100 pages in and I feel like my world view has changed. Trying to build up my own community is now my #1 thing
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
Going to Cabo in April with my husband! Looking to do more adventure travel, but also take advantage of all these Bonvoy points I have. Anyone have any recs for great properties there?
Just received an offer from another big 4 firm that was substantially less than I currently make (more than 10%). Do you guys think it is worth negotiating or should I just pass on it?
