Any Gates Foundation 🐠 who would be willing to chat or make a referral? I’m interested in a role there. Consulting and public health background
How does the SA to consultant promotion work? What should I be doing to prep for it and guarantee it (considering external factors)?
How do our firms view consultants and managers getting pregnant or just having young children in general? Is it a death sentence for future staffing opportunities? Conversely, would it mitigate the risk of layoff due to covid considering the optics / laws around woman’s pregnancy rights in the workplace? Honestly just curious.
Is this behavior normal? I just left a call with the SM, and Partner of a project, and the SM threw my manager under the bus. My M wasn’t on the call to defend himself, & I know for a fact that the fault was more on the SM not being present on the project, not communicating details he got from client to rest of team. M is also my coach and has been awesome at mentoring me and taking me under his wing, but he’s leaving for industry because the hours and WLB has brutal for him & he has a family.
For people who left for google - how many years were you at big 4? I want to apply for an entry level role to google bc I rlly just cant stand big4 but only been here for less than 2 years.
Hi fishes! Staring at an MBB soon! Understand this question has been raised before but I’d love to hear experiences people had with specific online courses for excel and PowerPoint and how relevant they turned out to be once you’ve started the job (eg Wall Street Prep / breaking into Wall Street has been brought up before but is it not “consulting” enough?) TIA!
What to do when you get a promotion but lower than expected salary adjustment? Does anyone have luck negotiating? Or if you’re happy with work otherwise is it better to just accept.
Remember when Mitch McConnell called the Covid pandemic a "Blue State Problem"? Well, it looks as if the virus decided to switch parties.
Whose in bonus land?
Bf and I are commuter LDR, so only see each other on weekends. He never stays more than a day because he’s an introvert and “needs his me-time”. He went over to WFH from his friend’s cabin on Tuesday, and is planning on staying the weekend rather than visiting me. I want him to have his fun, but I’m irritated.
Curious if anyone knows anything about Accord Consulting in Mass? My son goes to Brown and has an interview for an internship. They seem really new?
Anyone that has had COVID - did you have dizziness/fainting at all? I have a headache, dry cough and fainted earlier. Thinking of getting a test.
Never been on the bench. Always been 90+% utilization rate. Can I just be on the bench so I can study for CPA 🤣😭
Decade+ in and realizing I would rather be either in pure play brand consulting (like an Interbrand) or in consumer/culture advisory (deeper thought leadership, trends, consulting, like a Gartner or a WGSN ish) than stay in ad agencies working on campaign development. Has anyone made a pivot like this successfully? I feel like I am at a point where there are some skills or experiences those worlds require that I haven’t been able to “go deep” on, consistently in agency brand planning world.
In the middle of a compensation conversation. I was asked why I think I should be paid more, but wasn’t asked how much I expect. Is this normal?
What are some good questions to ask in an informational interview with a) competitor consulting firm, b) industry role? Haven't done recruiting in years..
