Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾

For Google, how is the Global Solutions ladder (Global Product Lead role) compared to a Strategy and Operations role / ladder in terms of compensation and exit opportunities? I’d like to figure out which one to apply to, both seem to fit well with consultant skill sets.

I just got promoted over a friend and I am really worried about how this will impact her. To be honest I think she is even more deserving of the promotion than me. What do I do to make it better so our friendship isn’t poisoned by this?
If you request a salary that’s too high does the hirer usually tell you it’s too high and offer you the salary they had in mind or just ghost you and move on to the next candidate?
Looking to get a few certifications, I have worked in both IT and HR consulting and am trying to decide between ITIL, SHRM, and PMP. Any thoughts on which would be best for future, quickest to get, hardest test? I get the cert paid for and a bonus upon completion, so trying to decide which one to pursue or the order if I want multiple.
What core function of a biopharma / Med device company would you specialize in, imagining whatever you choose you’ll come in with all the knowledge and experience you need? (E.g. HCP or patient marketing, value and market access, sales, supply chain / manufacturing / procurement, med affairs) Consider future trend and gap, demand for expertise / easiness to entry or to be replaced, career path to c-suit in a company, impact to the health system / patients, compensation etc.
Is it a given that you will be offered less salary/compensation if you use a recruiter vs. applying and getting the job directly?
I live in a HCOL city and am still not being paid enough to save/live . I have all of the tools/ skill sets to leave consulting and go into big tech . Before going out to market myself and get a new job should I even ask D for a raise ? I’m frustrated because I’m adding a lot of value to my current engagements and I think I’d have a good business case for a raise. On a side note I see people leaving left and right here which is not a good sign!

What is the bonus you've seen for fresh out of college consultants, assuming average review (started Jan and would receive bonus in December) ?
Need some advice. I’m working in M&A big law but this work isn’t sustainable for me: it eats at my mental health. I have $60k in loans left that I can manage to pay off in two years with my current salary. I’d like to get out of the law entirely but I’m (1) not sure of my exit options and (2) want to be sure I can save up enough to afford an exit while paying off my debt. What resources can I use to help with these two things?
Weird combination of de-facto self-promotion under poor guise of advertising Becker’s products PLUS humble-brag of winning the EWS award. Gotta love it!

Has anyone here ever not negotiated for a higher salary when given an offer? Looking at one that is 25% higher than my current salary and I'm pretty happy about it but I always hear to always negotiate for more.
Hey fishes, DM me for referral at EY
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’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼
I recently moved to the US for work. Single; went out with a guy from a dating app; he cracked jokes & told what sounded like cautionary story about his friend who married a foreigner and got dumped once she got a green card. I’m confused because I’m from a “wealthy” European country, based on public information I make more than 2x his salary… is it the case that Americans assume everyone dreams about becoming American, regardless of their circumstances? And should i be offended...?
￼￼flying out of the US tonight, still curative hasnt returned my pcr results yet. Anyone do the pcr test in LAX? How early should I go?
Any Bain 🐠 willing to give some advice on how to improve candidacy. Found a position I feel like I’m a great fit for but wary of being rejected right away.
After working 15 months on a big project, I was replaced by another creative who finished producing it. Dream client. Dream content. I was never told this was happening. The project just kept rolling on and I was not invited to the meetings. The company recently released the work and everyone is fawning over it. Much of the concept is the same, which I had a key role in. Due to Covid it was packaged differently, but still the same messaging. I’m so angry. but not sure I have the right. 😖
If I reached my required hours (45) for the week, do I still have to put PTO for tomorrow?
Had a final interview earlier this week where at the end my interviewer said “hope I’ll be seeing you after Christmas!” (the position would start in January). But it’s been a couple days and I haven’t heard anything and I’m starting to freak out 😭
Guy beside me is manspreading. If your leg pokes out past our shared armrest into my space I'm going to cross my leg and wipe my shoe on your pants. And we're in the exit row FFS.
Does anyone feel like there is some wage compression going on for HR professionals these days? College recruits/entry level are receiving higher pay, meanwhile those of us with 10+ years of experience often have difficulty making more money.

Had two great phone interviews last week with A&M. They seemed impressed and I thought I would be on the next round. Haven’t heard from them since. Wonder if Corona had an impact...

My baby just woke up from his late morning pre-nap and is getting ready for his early afternoon nap to be followed by late afternoon post-nap.
What were some of the best interview experiences you’ve had? What was the technical interview challenge? Was it the company/interviewers that made it positive?
