Looking for some advice on job search. I’m planning to exit into Corp Strat in 2021. How might I go about finding companies with good WLB? Is it industry specific (e.g., tech, FI, etc.)? Or will I need to pound the pavement, access my network, and get individual answers by company? Any other tips?
Parents-how do you feel about daycares opening? Ours never closed but we kept kids home. Our company is WFH for the foreseeable future & it’s hard to reconcile daycare isn’t the same risk as an office
International Tax SA here. A partner at Deloitte IT group reached out to me on Linkedin for an opening. I replied and he wants to talk on the phone about the opportunity. Does this happen a lot? Don’t think I’ve ever heard a partner recruiting directly on Linkedin. Anyone has any thoughts?
I'm in a position where I don't like the tasks that are coming with my next promotion, but I really love my company (culture-wise). I have no idea whether I should jump ship or not.
Anyone familiar with Sila solutions group? They contacted me about a business technology analyst position
Would love some advice—I’ve spent the last 2 yrs in sr level role doing policy work I enjoy. early on I discovered I was srsly underpaid & had to fight to fix it. Then leadership changed & things were good, until recently they dangled a promotion only to tell me it wouldn’t come with a raise for at least 6 mons. Then a diff agency asked me to apply for a role that pays a lot more but the work sounds so boring. Do I follow the money or do I keep doing work I like while feeling undervalued?

I've an interview scheduled for this week with EY for the role of Consultant - Performance Improvement. For first round I was asked to submit a case study solution. I wanted to know how many rounds of interviews would be there and how the overall process would be like since this would be my first experience for consulting interview. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated 😊
Been with GBS for about 8 months and with the way things are going with the firm, is it best to come up with an exit strategy ASAP?
Class of 2020 graduate. I am working in-house in technology transactions/commercial but I’ve been trying to get my foot in the door in the privacy/cybersecurity area. I have my CIPP/US and I’m in all the Privacy groups/bookclubs/etc with my bar association. Still absolutely no luck when applying for positions. Any suggestions? Would you recommend getting a privacy analyst role first to get some experience?
Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?
Invest in revamping tech skills or going full management? I'm an Expert EM, with experience managing both data science and generalist consulting teams. Before the Firm, I was fairly technical (grad school in top CS eng school and brief startup experience) but I'm a bit rusty after ~3 years of consulting. Which exits should I invest in, tech route (e.g. SWE/DS) or management (e.g. Director role or PM)? I'm trying to optimize for WLB while not downgrading pay.
Looking for Seattle opportunities.. Have almost 3 years of Oracle functional experience.. trying to do something with cloud.. Taking AWS SAA in 2 weeks. Any recommended openings or referrals?
Hi! 2019 grad and started working in-house at a large org. Learning a lot, my area is finance and corporate. Curious to know if there are any folks here who moved to a big law firm from an in-house position (very early on in their career). Was it easy? Did you like it? Very happy in my current position - I def have great work life balance, but feel need more than that. Thanks in advance.
Have 250$ WFH allowance, what should I spend it on? Thinking of a dock or maybe another ANC headphone? Thoughts or suggestions?
When did you start telling folks at work that you are pregnant? I am 8 weeks pregnant now. i am at a consultant level and concerned whether this will affect staffing since i don't have a deep network.
How does one go about finding a good career/life coach? Just started new job that is great on paper but not getting the momentum that I want out of the gate. Could be 2020 and remote onboarding dragging me down. Also made a lot of money in stocks recently which is also making me reassess everything as we’ve been fortunate to hit some big goals. Tempted to go part time or consult on projects in the interim.
Been in a new in house comms role, for a month. Just got a email from someone I previously interviewed with two years ago at better organization saying they have a open role. Would it be bad to leave?

I haven’t had a salary increase since early 2015. What’s the best way to get a raise? Not in a major metro area, so jumping ship means going outside the industry.
Got rejected from McK after one final round interview didn’t go well. When can I reapply? I was being considered for a post-MBA role. Super bummed
Friend of mine took me out for dinner, and on the car ride back I casually suggested we stop for ice cream. He raised his voice “I have things to do, we can’t just do this.” And immediately apologized. I shut down when men raise their voice and felt disrespected, but I didn’t want to be hostile and argue about it with him in the car, so we rode back in silence. I also don’t know how to (or if I should) bring it up since we aren’t dating. How do you address this (or do you just let it go)?
Keeping the big 4 in mind, what role/level would you have to reach before you qualify for a eb1c L1 visa with a good chance of approval?

Made a mistake-- chose Hilton complimentary wifi instead of $5/day premium. How to fix it???
I left my former employer in Q4 2019 but didn’t rollover my Roth 401k prior to the crash, so I’ve left it there this whole time and it’s rebuilt nicely (not back to where it was, but closer)...cont
Currently in the lateral interview process and have had a few interviews a week. Does anyone else feel drained by this process? The time spent preparing for and attending interviews feels like a second job.
Is there any Bench period in Deloitte?
Nothing new here I guess, but still putting it out there... I am an educated, smart, successful woman. But these days I see myself as a mother of two who is barely surviving at life when she is used to “killing it” at work. Kids are not learning anything new, house is a mess, unlimited personal projects on hold, personal grooming is not even on the agenda and to make it all worse, have a personal goal of weight loss but am actively working against it.
If my Firm offered voluntary severance of, at least, 3 months, I would take it today. No hesitation. Who else?
This baby is competing with my Bose NC headphones. The baby is winning. (No fault or judgement to the mother.... I feel bad for her, she's a trooper).
Suggestions for handling a peer who constantly uses their years of experience to curtail discussions? Both of us are SM’s leading teams within the same Market so we talk often. This SM will say things like “I have 15 more years of experience than you so I am better at this than you/I know how to handle these things”. It’s infuriating and I often want to respond with “And I’m 15 years younger than you and in the same position, so I must be doing something right!” (Cont)
