Pros - usually decent pay bump, better hours than B4, more interesting work Cons - can get repetitive, takes more finesse to go from senior to manager

I don't think it's a bad move - i've seen s1s and s2s movw to this role. Definitely much more interesting than corp accounting

I recently interviewed for a client-side marketing manager role with a global company. I’ve been engaged with the company for over a year and built a network of internal advocates. One of my internal contacts was the hiring manager who promised to do whatever she could to help me get hired. The position was on her team and she told me to apply. After five interviews I was not selected although I met all of requirements and more. I’ve yet to from her as to why. Would you fight this?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company.
