Hello fishes. I'm an MBA graduate currently working as a digital marketing professional in a mid size consulting firm with 3 years of experience. I am terribly underpaid in my current org at 5.5 LPA after a recent promotion and annual appraisal. Another mid size consulting firm offered me 7.5 LPA but I am asking them around 9 LPA.

I’m trying to evaluate if this course is worth attending for 3 full working days - i.e do I need to attend this course to become eligible for giving a prince2 exam or attending the course itself suffice?
Hello Partners, need some advice. Me 20 yoe, MBA & MS from t20, was a senior manager (associate partner) at B4 for 6 years, in an internal role (e.g EY CBS/ PWC IFS etc) and didn't have a path to partnership, so left b4 & joined large tech (eg. oracle, IBM, Microsoft etc), at a senior director level.

I’m already at least semi knowledgeable - without studying I can get in the high 50s on the Boson practice tests, and just need to brush up on a few areas (by no means an accomplishment - providing as a data point to indicate I know more than nothing).

Does anyone else find folks at Amazon are incredibly hierarchical ? The levels - L6, L7, L8 , - are brought up frequently in conversations in meetings. My meetings are with L6s and L7s. Example, "He is a L8!! We need to do this for him...."..'I need to do this for my L7". I am new and when introducing myself to L7s via email , they just straight up reject it without so much as a welcome or a "you should connect with someone else to talk about this topic" Talk about feeling welcomed
