Work in deals, little financial modeling/valuation experience. Any advise on how to build these skills in the event of me exiting? Any sources I️ could go to, instead of waiting for a project?
Manager calls tonight and basically says my deliverable is crap and has to be redone. It’s really hard to hear after I’ve been busting my ass on the project creating this and doing 864 other things.
I am most likely quitting within the next 2 months. Feel like I’m planning to leave at an important point in my project’s lifecycle. I’m only 1 year in. Have a backfill in mind. Am I overthinking?
Any pointers for someone who struggles to speak up during meetings? When I do speak, I’m confident, clear, and direct, but finding that I’m very self-conscious about speaking up or providing my perspective during workshops or brainstorms with the client, for fear of being wrong or being judged. I’ve received some feedback about it lately, so wondering if you 🐠 had any advice
Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?

Staffed on a project but looking for my next role. Every time I network with someone the answer is “nothing right now but I have this proposal.” I’ve said yes a few times now I’m slammed doing...

Hi fellow EA fish 🐟🐠🐡 I’m hoping to make comp comparisons between MBB and the Big 4 since Glassdoor and other websites aren’t that accurate. Please feel free to DM!
First time on bench since I joined last year. Feels weird to have pretty much nothing to do but really needed the time off. Should I try to find a project right away or wait for one more week? ⛱
Only SC team lead on a project where all other leads are SM's.... How do I get my point across without being discounted ?? Can't keep asking the Director to step in on horrible decisions being made.
How does Stax consulting compare to Big 4 M&A strategy diligence and value creation groups? Regarding work, reputation, etc
Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)
What are your opinions on having a website? I feel like it could go a long way me an identity. Is it necessary to have one right off the bat or did you wait until you had a solid client base first?

Ladies I am 35 weeks pregnant and going on maternity leave in 2-3 days. Politics on my project has led to poor project snapshots. What should I do?
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
I love my job at EY but the salary sucks. I have barely seen a 100 dollar raise monthly past three and half years. My salary started out at 62 and is barely there at 74 now. How do we negotiate here
Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?

I can legitimately see why an mba or a business ug would help Strategy consultant’s, but I don’t see why it would help non-Strategy consultant’s (implementation, transformation, pmo). Why for latter?
Another final round interview today that I thought went really well. Time to constantly check my phone and email and not get any work done / get my hopes up...
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
How valuable is industry experience? Standard advice is stay in B4 till manager, but I see managers saying they struggle to find jobs because they lack industry experience. Trying to decide whether I
Producers, what changes are you making in your roles to promote lasting social change? Demanding diversity in reels? Pushing representation in casting? How can we be (and do) better? All ideas are welcome.
Heard that you are not likely to get laid off for being unstaffed if you got promoted in the last performance cycle, anyone know if that's true?
CMV: noise canceling headphones are overrated. It blocks out the background noise and isolates annoying noises like baby crying...earplugs are far superior for traveling.
