When I was on my very first project after years of experience and no PowerPoint skills and getting hired on at my last consulting firm, I was utterly confused and annoyed at how much time we spent on slides. Seriously, who cares?
Ugh. That feeling when a potential client calls to ask where their follow up email is, you (in the privacy of your office) roll your eyes and respond that you sent the email days ago...and then you check your account to realize to your horror that you drafted it but never sent it.

I know my client needs an Accounting Manager. I know this because they’re startup med device company that has their books in complete shambles. The current accounting team isn’t very strong. How do I let the client know that I would be interested in joining them? They’re not actively recruiting for any position but I know they’d benefit from it. Serious responses only :)

I am a personal injury defense attorney and I’ve never done plaintiff’s work. I have a case where I suspect the plaintiff is malingering and exaggerating his injuries. The plaintiffs attorney has sent me multiple demands for $3 million dollars and basically begged me to respond with some offer. I’ve told him the truth - my client has no interest in trying to settle if his demand remains about twenty times higher than the actual worst case (for us) jury verdict. More in comments...

Curious if any partners are aware of any convos at the biglaw level about associate comp increases / cravath scale tweaks. Not trying to be greedy, truly just curious. We had a couple back to back with the last increase in 2018. Covid appreciation bonus seems like an acknowledgment of this, but it was a one off. Record profits and inflation possibility makes me think it has to be on minds.

I’m filling out my background check for my Deloitte offer. Is the professional career start date the date I started my job after college or literally the date I had my first job (if it’s in the 25 years Deloitte asks about)?
My security clearance asks for 10 years but nothing before 18, and it seems weird if Deloitte wants to know high school jobs.
Any help would be appreciated!

Is consulting still worth it (in comparison to F500 strategy positions) without a lot of the benefits (flex travel, reimbursements, retreats, team events, etc.) in the near future?
Hi everyone, recently graduated associate here👋 perhaps a dumb question, but I wanted to know if applied to a job at Deloitte and got rejected after the first round of interview (approx 1 month ago), is it appropriate to apply to other roles within Deloitte?I’ve brushed up on my interview skills and resume since then and feel better about applying, but not sure if it looks bad since I got rejected from one role already?

Can someone explain if I should use regular 401k or Roth 401k? My 2 FA’s gave different answers and I don’t understand which to use. I have already done the back door Roth IRA max
I’ve been offered senior associate position at PwC within the Sustainability & Climate Change Practice In London. I have 3.5 years of experience and I’m currently on 45k. PWC offered 46k, I asked for higher they’ve come back with 48k. Should I ask for higher/how do I approach this? I don’t think 48k covers inflation but unsure if I’m asking too much
Virtual interview with camera... is it weird to wear air pods? I have roommates so I feel like the sound is the best with them in, plus I won’t hear my roommates
hypothetical- let's say you got laid off from your firm. You see a similar position on website and apply. Recruiting team then reaches out to talk about the opening. Do you take the call?
I once got rolled off a project because my PowerPoint wasn't good enough.
I could never touch PowerPoint again in my life and be indifferent. Excel on the other hand 🥰
Excel is ambrosia mercifully bestowed upon us by the grand gods of professional services
I’m probably the only weirdo who loved and do like working ( or should I say enjoy) on ppt. 😂
Yes. I create a lot of ecosystem mapping which is why I enjoy it as well
so glad I barely touch ppt lol
I myself am trying to get on some nlp/data science projects lol, but feel free to dm for referral
Can you explain this to me in a few slides? Please have it to me by Sunday morning. Thnx.
I guess certain companies really look at the structure and color scheme of the PowerPoint, they do showcase it alot, we just don’t seem to know it. Companies really like to keep their colors in the PowerPoint too
Agreed that I have never seen a nice PwC slide 🤣🤣.
24 yoe in consulting
If PowerPoint were never invented, there would 1/3 fewer consultants in the world.
Always amazed how much most firms rely on it.
Obviously based on some PowerPoint deck 🤣
I know this is high heresy, but as a design consultant who never has to use excel integrations, I think keynote is easier to make higher quality outputs with🤷♂️
Sure, I also hate PPT- it takes a LOT of effort to put together good slides and wordsmith, but that doesn’t mean one shouldn’t excel at it. It is an access to the way senior executives communicate with each other and can change your outlook in a company…otherwise you may just become a lonely one note taker because execs may not see you as one that is able to drive change and lead teams. Word?
Same. I went to an elite boutique firm and then put me through Udemy courses. You click you die. And then the amount of features. I can still look at slides and feel irked if something is off center and notice 9.5 vs 10 font
What makes someone really good at PowerPoint?
The ability to instantly tell a story with a completed slide that drives change or action.
