To managers and senior managers in big 4, how do you support your seniors to be promoted to manager? I have a senior manager on a big job, who always talks over me and once I explain something he always reexplains it as though I never explained it properly which brings my confidence down. Should I be more assertive and ask him why he is doing it?

I’d talk to him about the promo and what he thinks you need to improve and what he wants from you to show you’re ready. It could be something he’s unconsciously doing and isn’t aware of how it’s impacting you, which is a different problem and incredibly frustrating to deal with. Approaching it as a way to gain his support vs. asking why might help him change his behavior.

I got a verbal offer from one of big 4 and the 💰 is decent. Here is my hesitation : I want to go truly because I want to grow to be a leader. I am a Sr. DS, specialize in financial risk analytics. I want to join Big4 ( as SA -DS) so I can learn what's new in the industry and see if I can contribute to white papers. Am I too naive? 🤔 I just read so many negative comments about Big4 and really got me thinking....

Any tips for building a client base from scratch? I’m a 4th year associate at a firm of 12 attorneys. I practice in business, compliance, and real estate (primarily on partners’ files) and don’t litigate. Most of the partners’ clients are wealthy friends or friends of friends (not my circle). Associates are not referred business, even cold calls, and so far “networking” events like Chamber of Commerce luncheons have been a bust. I equate a book to autonomy and career choice and pressure is on.
