can typically still access these after leaving a company if you need them (just call HR, they will send)

No one is allowed to do it. Everyone I know did.

A manager I worked with this year emailed our whole team a compiled file of decks from her precious big4 employer. I was really taken aback by this. It’s one thing to take things illegally but another thing to circulate it all over the competitor. And no SM or Partner said anything. After that, I just lost respect for her sense of judgement. I guess if you take something don’t do that.

I’d be shocked if it was allowed at your firm. Any deliverables you make are considered the IP of your firm and if you are caught you could be subject to lawsuit

You’ll have to reference your policies but most policies do not allow you to take any of your files since anything created during your time at said company is usually deemed company property.

Never.

Keep your reviews (if they’re good) for reference.

I know you’re not supposed to... but seriously no one takes any of the models they built?

I remember how I built them, but I don’t take them.

Proprietary to the org and any self respecting consultant can recreate their work.

Hi! Any career coaches who offer a full support throughout job search? -Experience: 8 years of project/program management and/or communication -Companies of interest: Google, Microsoft, Facebook -Location: Washington DC or VA

Back to back calls every day, unrelenting context switching at 30 minute intervals. At any given moment my only goal is to just make it through my next meeting / client call / orals. That's it. I'm literally existing in pure survival mode day after day. Anyone else in this special kind of Hell? Anyone successfully pull themselves out?
