I overheard a convo between Associates in IFS (Internal Firm Services) complaining how they don't make as much as client facing staff. Well... What do they expect?
Was asked to take on an intern on my job that I’m already behind schedule on (bc of client). already have a 1st year staff that is completely bombarding me with questions. How do i (politely?) say no?
Please help me with recommendations to Join Accenture in terms of Job security, Layoff and Variable pay, Work life balance. How much time it takes to get the project once we join?
Who else is shaving their head bald at this time to minimize coronavirus spread? Won’t be client facing for at least a few months, enough time to grow it back!
Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?
Today I listened as the client said to partner"this is just too much work for me, we will need to eng you for non-attest svcs" effectively screwing my December up. (Cont.)
Thinking about taking FMLA for my depression/anxiety but am worried how that will impact my career given that I would start my next project very late if I did. Thoughts?
My last billable day on my client is on Wednesday but my last day with D is on Friday. Would I just bill Thursday and Friday as GAA? Deloitte
When I was in industry, I started presenting to SVPs as an intern. Now my manager says I’m too junior to present to an SM on the client team (I’m a level 10). This is a little upsetting
Boss is cool giving me some minor additional responsibilities on projects (delegating to other creatives, leading client presentations). How can I parlay this into a promotion to Senior AD? Or ACD?
Anyone back working on the client site yet? How do you think the Delta variant could impact that?
Where are we on voting rights? https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/30/business/jamie-dimon-voting-rights-jpmorgan/index.html Huge client of our firms - we can talk a great game on BLM and diversity but can we be strong enough to stand up and speak out publicly in defense of voting rights?
Has anyone ever taken useful non-client-specific work product from their firm’s system before switching to a new firm? Any insight?
How does MBB select resume reviewers for applications? Do they source from client staff globally, regionally?
Someone created this site to share salary information. Would be cool to see some more forensic postings: http://www.big4transparency.com
New EM and just learned a great lesson about how even if my team’s and my work is 100% right, but leadership doesn’t feel in touch with it or clued in on development, it won’t get too far.
Have any unicorn juniors gotten their O1 visas sponsored recently or that's totally out of the question nowdays? Just curious🙂
Have a friend looking to fill a Product Marketing Manager opening at a rapidly growing fin tech startup called Origami Risk. CHI, DEN, or ATL. Anyone interested? Happy to pass resume along.
What does it mean when the HM wants to talk to me again? Already had the first round interview with her, move me to 2nd interview and passed already.
Had couple of interviews with a Faang company but literally have been told that the hiring manager is out on business travel, pto, etc literally 4 times and now 1.5 months has passed since my last
Anyone wants a referral?
What do you do on Monday to get your week set up? I feel like I spend so much time helping my team get their pipelines in shape for the week / setting up a plan.
Fishes from price, kpmg, Deloitte. It’s that time again. Bonus percentages in consulting. Please share for level, rating, bonus percentages please! EYs will be released in 2 weeks.
Hi, I have more than 5+ years of experience in Performance Testing and engineering. I do not want to continue in tech. Want to switch to management. So planning to do a PMP course. Really confused about the consequences after the course, whether I'll be able to successfully get a management role or not. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for me? Any guidance is appreciated.
Anyone got their masters in compsci? If so, how did it help you advance in the workforce? I was thinking about applying to Columbia masters in compsci.
Any examples of a variable compensation model for VP Corp Dev (head of corp dev, a sweating to only CEO) of 1B rev company? Like what percentage of the deal should I ask for in addition to 250K salary and undetermined amt of equity? i.e., 3% on deals up to $1M, 1% on deals up to $10M etc.
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Accepted big four FT as campus hire after the summer internship junior year. my interests changed from 2 years ago when I was a junior. I realized I hate traveling/consulting..please advise 😭
I received an offer for 30k more than I’m making now at Deloitte for Cyber Risk.. what’s the main reason Advisory is a bad choice? Is a Senior Consultant role in this practice a bad place to be from a career growth perspective? I don’t understand the practice structure and am unsure if I’m being misled. I also don’t want to be doing only security assessments, if that’s what the work is like. 😅
What are good questions to ask in an informational interview? I’ve been with my current company since day 1 and am applying to new production gigs for the first time.
If i don't plan on staying in the US long term (maybe ~3 years), should I bother with a 401k contribution? Granted the matches are nice to have, but what about early withdrawal fee's / vesting time?
