Any jrs who didn’t go to VCU , MAS, or Creative Circus also having a tough time landing a full time gig? I’ve only been able to snatch an internship and short term freelance. Advice please. #desperate
New to consulting and the big 4 - have been extended on the same project since joining. The project does not align to the skills or experience I was hired for and has been extremely challenging due to the lack of project organization and proper staffing. I received ‘progressing towards level’ on my last engagement review. How do I get off this project that’s clearly not a fit before it negatively impacts my overall career at the firm?
Should someone with an MSBA still go for MBA, or is time better spent elsewhere (I.e self learning, starting a side hustle)? Long term goal is to have my own company, and plan B would be management at a large corporate. Currently in a big 4. Thanks!
How hard is switching from Audit to FP&A? They tend to like people with finance background and very in depth industry experience. I’m five years in audit from b4 to IA and jumping out from audit could only get me some senior accountant roles.
Do most of the big 4 have a pension still for partners? I thought I heard most got rid of them recently.
What consulting firms sponsor MBA? I know MBB/ most tier 2’s do - what about big 4/ other firms?

I’m curious how long people were in the peri menopause phase? I’ve read it’s an average of 4 years but I’m curious what people’s experiences are. I believe I am late stage peri menopausal and my periods have been very irregular for the past 9 months ranging 13-60 days between periods. If anyone has any studies you could point me to, I’d love to see those as well! I’m 40 and my mom entered menopause at 41.

Hi everyone!! I used to a work for a big social/pr/marketing agency in Vegas where processes were streamlined and hiring/training materials were already put together. I now work for a smaller law firm as the only social person managing 5+ brand related accounts. We (finally) hired a social person to help me! She’s fresh out of college and starts next week. Before I begin putting together her training materials and schedule, I was wondering if anyone here would mind sharing theirs?
