Exploring a potential data analytics role at MBB that isn’t part of their general consulting track… it seems more like an internal service that partners with consulting teams and occasionally is client facing. I’m interested in pursuing an MBA in the near-ish future and I’m curious how much this would help my application versus staying in my current role as a B4 consultant?
Has anyone had a client (agency) just not pay? If so, what steps did you take to get them to do it? They were already late before COVID and now they’re just not responding. Any recos?
How do I know I need to review a SOC report? If I’m relying on a report, yes I need to. But what about those applications that client uses as back-up center (AWS for instance). Do I still need to review SOC? What about applications used for record keeping but not processing of transactions (Quickbooks for instance)?

My Director just chewed me up and started taking over as a lead on my project... 3 weeks in of having no clue what I'm doing, working 10 hrs+/day and multiple sleepless nights, I have to say I'm so relieved. Is it a good idea to take a step back and let my Director run things?
Potential agency boomerang having a hard time making a decision to stay brand-side or go back. Need some advice! Do I leave the brand, being "the client," fun work, great WLB, as well as the most toxic work environment I've ever experienced and meh pay? Do I go back to agency lead a new team with significant responsibilities, forget about WLB, sell my soul alongside smart people, get great pay and benefits? PS: I'm a mom and brand-side for 5 years. What do I need to know!? Thank you!
Poll - Have companies started travel to client sites? Which companies? I know Deloitte team members are traveling. Also, I see a new trend based on interactions with a few people. Most prefer remote
Looking at my project assignments like...
I think my problem is that I will never care as much about client service as I do about sleep
Coming from a big 4 - Can we mention the names of the clients we have worked with over the years when interviewing? I am at a boutique agency now working with some people who came from Accenture and some other consulting companies and I noticed that they will reference their clients by brand name. If it is a past project and you do not give any client sensitive information is it OK to share the names of the brands that you've worked with in your previous role?￼ What's standard?
Re-watching the Javy Baez walkoff last night against the Reds and absolutely loved the fire/smack talking in a series where there’s historical bad blood between the two. Which leads me to wonder, is there any sort of sense of rivalry at all between competitor firms? We joke about it through avenues like social media but has anyone actually first-hand experienced a competitive/hateful side to work that they didn’t know existed? (Like when a client is poached or business won from a competitor).
Also, how many times do you receive an “urgent request” before the client goes on vacation? Here’s this important stuff I need done, but won’t be around to answer questions until 2 days before due.
I have a final round interview for a non-investment role at a hedge fund in the NYC area. I was told I would be discussing comp with the founder of the fund. What kind of compensation can I expect going into the conversation? The firm has about 35 employees and $15bn AUM. Role is business development/client service associate and this would be my first full time role. I just want to have a general idea of what comp could/should be so I feel prepared to discuss
Dont know why there is a need for me to go to the client's site as a staff I if all the work im doing here can be done back at the office- such a waste of my time...i seriously dont know why i'm here
Wondering how freelance producers are doing in this climate. I was let go when a project ended. Have heard most agencies are trying to use staffers since clients are cutting way back
When is an appropriate time to cut off your availability for client calls? On travel days I make myself available from 8am-10pm and fridays 8-5. Weekends as needed. Is this too strict?

I just quit watching the Olympics 2day :( I've been following since Athens 2004 and I started liking some not so common sports like fencing and taekwondo (started trying fencing but covid hit, sadly - been out ever since). But I really loved surf, since Kevin Slatter - I never had the talent to it, but still try sometimes LOL. But the match fixing today btw Medina and Igarashi was ABSURD - real shame. What a frustration - took out all my excitement.

Currently pregnant with baby 2 and a start-up which I was really keen on about 9 months ago came back around to offer me a position. I am about 4.5 months away from leave with my current firm. Am terribly nervous about accepting an getting more even half of the leave I could have gotten before. To top it all off they are offering 50% salary until they raise their target (about 30% to their goal right now). This position is in my dream field and a great fit for me, but the timing couldn’t be wors
Has anyone has experience with a firm's outplacement services? At MBB maybe? Worth it or not? Thanks!
