What are jobs and companies that require similar skills like consulting, digital marketing, etc. but have excellent WLB and are more slower paced...? I can’t imagine working my life away for client demands in a fast paced environment for the long term. Also the longer I progress in my role, the more I have to focus on sales and I hate sales so much 😢
Anyone recently joined Accenture and just hardlock to a project with no work? How long does it takes to get allocated to project ?
New to Fishbowl, currently working on a career pivot! I graduated in May with my MBA and have experience as a Director of Operations as well as recruiting and HR experience. I am looking to move more into Change/Project Management or Director of People Operations roles. I have been at the application game now for two months with only two interviews and over 20 applications sent out each week. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Feeing a little defeated over here. Thank you!
What the does your day normally look like? Is there more to it than taking client calls/meetings?
Anyone have advice about the process for moving in-house at Apple? Soon-to-be 6th year securities/investigations associate at V20 (lateraled from a V10) with FAANG (but not Apple) client experience who would appreciate intel on process, likelihood of success, and Apple in-house culture.
Folks -How to find Senior level positions (Director /technical project manager) @Analytics in Startups or high potential companies?I thought of using Linkedin premium but not sure if that’s the best option. Thanks
Is there a best practice for categorising your experiences on your external/public/LinkedIn type resume? Do you group it by project or by the type of work you did? Any other ideas?
The two people at my client who are former consultants are literally the only people around here who have any idea how shit gets done.
I always thought it was strange that agencies rarely let candidates know the client until they are towards the end of the process. My position has way more job security than others simply because I work for a CPG client. Those in the same role on other accounts (e.g. airlines, hotels, fitness) have been furloughed or even laid off just because of the nature of the industry their client is in. Do we think agencies will have to be more transparent and let candidates ultimately chose the client?
All right, which one of you created this checklist / flowchart for my client to put in every restroom stall?
Lol my firm halted all sales travel but continued client travel. Just waiting for someone to get sick so I can sleep in my own bed for more than 8 nights a month
Got an incredible project and right before starting they told me I had to do a drug test. I am not 100% sure if Ill pass it and I am not sure I should risk it. Any advice? Risk it or say something?
Used to do financial analysis/special project work at a bank but switched to management consulting so I could work on interesting projects. However, now I’m doing project/program management work with nothing finance-related in sight…. Looking to exit into a finance/ops/strategy role, anyone make that move recently?
Here's a situation. I have been selected to join as a manager at a big four entity. While the HR seems to be fine with the hike and the overall package, the senior/management in the team/project seems to be unhappy with the same. Not sure if the offer might go ahead with a lower package or might not go through at all. The general understanding is that the HR takes a call on packages. Is it different at the big four?
Anyone deal w/ having too many cooks in the kitchen? I get tired of so many rounds of feedback & people having differing opinions. How to keep your head up when it happens on almost every project? 😅
Brought in at clients request despite not having experience in work stream, found out leadership wanted more senior consultant and was trying to dissuade client. I’m uneasy, like leadership doesn’t +
My skin isn't the best and with WFH - I have been doing the basics : moisturiser and sunscreen everyday which has really helped. Next year, I'm likely to be back full time in the office and on client site - and I want to do the bare minimum makeup wise. Can someone provide me your "bare minimum" routines and also - makeup/skincare brands! :)
I’m outlining a modified project 33 / minimal clothing / uniform idea - how many pants do you think you need for 1 week and for 2 weeks? I think 3 for 1 week, but 5 for two so you can dry clean
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.
Anyone have a Branch standing desk? Thoughts?
Unassigned for the next couple weeks. Fighting the urge to work from home until I am assigned. #minivacation
Bain: can someone please tell me what the “hiring exercise” entails as part of the interview process?
Bear markets are necessary in crypto space so scam projects and pump and dumps can go defunct and legit coins can raise back.
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Anyone have any embarrassing WFH stories with just sheer amounts of trash in their background? Accidentally flipped my camera on during a meeting and my god, it looked bad. Lots of water bottles, chipotle bags, and soda cans
Average comp for s1 consultants here in Denver? I know I’m below market but curious to see how much.
For those who have made/making the move from FDD over to FP&A, how do you address the lack of financial modeling skills in interviewing? Seems like a big gap when at Manager or above level when that’s one of the biggest parts of the FP&A function.
Got notified that my EAD card is being delivered to my place. Didn’t submit my medical record with I-485 so I’m hoping to receive the RFE for that soon now that EAD is almost here. Has anyone been in the similar situation and did the medical exam before receiving the RFE? Is that allowed? Wanna try to mail out my medical exam as soon as I receive the RFE to cut down time!
Hoping to get some input on exit paths from tax. I’ve been at a small local firm for 2.5 years, got my CPA license this year, expecting promotion to senior after evaluations in December. Overall I’m pretty happy where I’m at now, the company has a good culture and no one works crazy hours. But I don’t plan to stay in public accounting for my entire career and have heard that the year after senior promotion is a good time to make a change. I’m concerned that
Has anyone here filed for leave of absence? What was the process and what did you have to submit on medical grounds? Without going into the details, I’m unwell and leadership isn’t sympathetic or budging on taking time off.
All this inflation talk... Time to move 401k into bonds/stables for capital preservation yet? What's your take?
Just for stats: how many times did your firm apply for your H1B lottery before it got picked and approved? I’ll go first - 5 times and still hasn’t been picked ever 😅
In a dilemma- Im applying R1 and one of my managers who I’m going to request a letter of rec from is also who I would need to advocate for me for a promotion this upcoming cycle. Has anyone gone through something similar and have advice on how I should approach this?
Going to finish around 10 to 15k miles short of exec plat on AA. Mileage run over the next few weeks worth it?
Anyone here whose GC is processed in California? PWD, PERM (and all other filings ie, H1B transfer) is delayed compared to East Coast?
Recently lateralled to a new firm and I have mild “PTSD” from my old firm 😶 everything from the way docs are saved on the system, file naming, email writing style, team conventions etc - I keep thinking any small mistake would get me yelled at / be at the receiving end of snarky or passive aggressive emails but people at my new firm are so lovely and far from that. I’m trying really hard to move past this and my new colleagues are probably getting sick of my questions 😂 Anyone else can relate?
I am a high performer (gold standards and Almost always my whole career), but really want to shift into a Product Manager role internal to EY. I have true passion and love for building new (tech) products from scratch. Any advice? Any thoughts?
