👋🏽 I realized I wanted to drive internal processes more than sell in work with clients. I valued internal relationship building versus external. I enjoy operations and timelines and sticking to them. I liked being close to the work versus trying to drive a business strategy. I liked the flexibility of project to project versus year+ on a client. I like building budgets but in both PM and AM I hate being the timesheet and budget watcher 😰 Hope this helps :)

We are experiencing more behavioral issues from all students bringing our Administration, Middle School Building Principal to create a Discipline Team. I am on the team. I am a SPED teaher.

Does anyone know acceptance rates at big 4 type firms versus boutiques? Most assume big 4 are harder to get into and more prestigious than boutiques or lower level firms. I’m at a mid tier firm so I’m fairly neutral in this. I’ve worked with highly intelligent, and highly incompetent, consultants from either type of firm. Would love to hear your thoughts on this and any data you have. Sometimes I wonder why big 4 is so highly revered when work products I review are less than stellar.
