Is it better to join cyber companies consulting orgs (Mandiant, CrowdStrike, Fireeye) or Big 4/ACN for long term career growth?
We are still well underpaid and overworked. Just run the math yourselves, billable hours times your billing rate. Don’t forget to take into account realization (I usually use 70% to be conservative). In most cases, firms are making ~3.5 times our annual salary per client-facing employee (e.g anuual salary of $100,000 means that the firm is grossing and collecting $350,000 in fees from clients directly attributable to your work throughout the year so they profit $250,000 after paying you). https://news.bloomberglaw.com/financial-accounting/accounting-faces-reckoning-after-years-of-sluggish-pay-growth

However I have a lot more free-time now and am not sure what to do with my free-time ... I miss my former AD partner and the collaborative aspect of working at an agency. Any ADs or even CWs would like to connect and collaborate on side projects or just creative random fun stuff together? 🥺 👉🏼 👈🏼
Looking to implement a new agency resourcing, project management and cost tracking tool. We are a small agency (50 employees) and would likely not have somebody to dedicate full time to "running" the tool. We use a separate accounting system for billing and GL, but could integrate if we found the right system. If you've got a small agency system thats working for you, please share your thoughts.

Does anyone else do breakfast/morning meetings at home and then come into the office at around 10/11? This gives me the perks of extra sleep and a non-rushed breakfast while still satisfying the office requirement. Or do your offices tacitly require you to be in by 9 if you’re coming in for the day?
