SM here having a hard time even finding SM roles out of PwC, let alone director

May be the case but the SM role did not exist a while back. People got promoted within PwC from manager to director. At least in tax.

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?

I see allot of job posting for IT jobs have more down to earth reqs than a few years ago. The requirements seem fairly normal. A few years ago most IT job listing were looking for people with "Unicorn" Skills. They were even looking for people with 10YOE for a technology that was out for 5 years. It seems that there are many more openings than a few years ago probably also due to the fact that "remote" work is more than 30%. Is this sellers(candidate) or a buyers(company) market? Thoughts?

But he only started in August.

Folks, any intel on BCG’s internal HR Projects & Change team - specifically global services division (separate from consulting)? Any information would be appreciated!

Hypothetically speaking, what would happen if I put in my two weeks without another job lined up? What if I quit on the spot? I have some solid leads and interviews lined up, but I had a panic attack today and don’t know how much longer I can do this here.
