What’s typical pay for 1st year managers/project leaders at MBB, Accenture Strategy (SM), and PwC Strategy &? Including base and bonus. Trying to get an idea of my market value for comp conversation coming up!
I rolled off a project and after 3 weeks they staffed me back. Just the thought of going back gave me a headache and a knot in my stomach :(. Just wanted to vent.
Laid off after many, many years spent on agency side. What would you do next? Consulting? Client side? Build new agency? What does the future of advertising and marketing look like?
I am a beginner DA user and trying to gain experience. I am trying to do a project on ESG for fun, and having some difficulty coming up with a hypothesis. Want to pick your brains and see if I can get started. I have data about CO2 emisiones, electricity usage, air quality, and that’s pretty much it. Using alteryx and powerbi (to visualize results) as I don’t have any other programs. Thanks so much!
SM called in sick and we’re at client site. Is it out of place to ask if he needs anything - food or medication - or do I just send a get well soon message and keep it moving
Im someone with a "business" background (supply chain, procurement) that went to work for as a consultant for tech consulting firm after finishing my MBA, but now having trouble finding a project. Got my PSM 1 cert, but not sure what else to do. Not a technical person, never coded. What would you recommend someone in my position to focus on? I'd like to remain on the project management/BA side of the business. TIA!

Does anyone go to AA meeting while on the road? It would make life so much better for me if I could go, but I always feel like there isn’t time or I’m at the client too late
That moment when you notice that the COO of an agency involved with your project for some specific avtivities uses his Gmail for work
Question: The company that you are working for offers cloud managed services and has been approached by a potential client. What are some areas (or red flags) you would consider before responding to their RFP? ( I started putting together a response but would love to get your insights) Answer: 1) Understanding of current annual spending vs spending if they adopted our cloud services 2) Clients expected growth rate 3) Regulatory requirements depending on industry (medical, fed etc)

Has anyone worked on R-shiny? Who widely used is this? doesn't seem like to go-to for data viz, but client insists on using this. I not well versed in R so maybe Im missing something here. Thoughts ?
Anyone made the move from agency to client-side in pharma? Thoughts? Work-life balance better? Pay? Politics? Granted some of that depends on where you go, I know. Thanks!
I'm thinking about leaving the advertising world for qual research. I love being a strategist but I loath the client BS and the internal agency egos. I found a research company that does interesting bespoke qual that will still allow me to be creative and strategic. Plus an actual life outside of work. But it would mean a 20-40% pay cut. Has anyone ever been in this position or have some advice?
I know it’s generally good practice to give 2 weeks notice when leaving your company but should I give more time given that it will take longer than 2 weeks to backfill me on a project team?
New job offer: client side, lower title, more pay, no travel (more time with my little ones). Current job: promotion in a few months (expected to still have lower pay than the new offer). Thoughts?
Hi Fishes, I once remember seeing a webpage which had all my awards ( spot , client ) detail Anyone aware of the exact location ? May be somewhere on ToD
A pharma client requires a urine drug test. Will my ADHD meds make me test "positive"? If so, is there a chance to provide my prescription to a medical officer to clarify? (cont)
Amazing leaders, I have been facing some resistance from our offshore offices and need some guidance. Context, I am an Indian and been working in US and Basel for many years now. My offshore office in India is all men (similar to my US and Singapore office), however the moment they realize I am Indian, their attitude towards me changes drastically. For example, the team leader in India office (also 10 years older to me) in a global conference call said that the project needs more experience cont

In product based company, I'll be working on there some proprietary application. I wanted to understand if Infy can renegotiate and projects in Cdg location.
Companies trying to force people back to office = record company execs thinking you can get people to buy whole CDs in an era of streaming individual songs. Times have changed. Deal with the reality.
Point to ponder - Using the same resources (Skype,zoom, meetings, calls etc.) that were always available to us, why didn’t we work from home all along and wasted so much time commuting/flying?🤔
Went from big 4 advisory to a lower/MM PE Ops role. Is it worth trying for MBB if my near-future goal is to do portfolio ops at larger PE fund? I’m worried my resume doesn’t have strong enough names

Anyone interview for Kearney LCO recently? Saw some posts a few months back, but no updates on how they went. Interviewing next week and looking for insights into types of cases to expect. Kind of hoping there isn’t a market sizing question. Probably wishful thinking.
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
Should I be putting any money into my loans at this point? I havnt had to pay them yet with covid. What is everyone doing? Once payments resume again is anyone in a rush to pay them off?
Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
Been at Pwc for 8 years, never interviewed elsewhere before recently. How does process generally work once you get offer elsewhere? Is proper protocol to notify partners once offer is in hand?
I'd really like to progress to Sr Designer and get my hands into more responsibility and bigger projects. My boss's feedback when I asked how I could work to a promotion was "Find a problem and solve it". I'm feeling a little lost by that? Like a pain point in workflow for the larger team? Or a design problem I'm facing I can creatively work through? None of the above?
Spinning off from the earlier union discussion. What do non-big law attorneys think about unionizing?
What other consulting firms have a prominent supply chain consulting practice besides MBB, the Big 4 accounting firms, and Kearney?
🐟 fam! I have a connection of about 40 minutes at Denver airport. Will I make it? Flying United for both legs if that helps.
My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.
Just signed my exit-to-industry offer, and the sense of relief is palpable. Let’s hope the grass is greener!
