Is a breakaway from Tech consulting to economic development possible? What are your stories or stories you’ve heard? Thanks for all advice/opinion. 2 years in after college with recent promotion
Mamas - what are the most creative solutions to schooling you have seen for next year as alternatives? Is there something your school districts are doing that you think is creative and unique? Are you hiring teachers and creating pods? Renting space? I have twins entering kindergarten. I trying to find them a bridge program to act as a kindergarten but also exploring other options. I do know that a virtual environment while I work 50-60 hour weeks is not the best solution!
To the partners/directors/senior managers: can you give examples of mistakes/lessons you learned throughout your careers? Any really big F-Ups that really made you think about staying/leaving?
How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.
Is it okay to wear polos with logos of prior companies you worked for to work at the Big 4? Does it matter if you're on a client vs at the office?
Anybody who can help me with the contacts for some immigration attorneys who can review the documents for a change of visa status application (F1 OPT to B1/B2). Not looking for anything which is over $200/hour.
EY M3, presume I’m going to M4. Tier2 city in PI. Strong ratings. Any insight to my raise/bonus if I’m low end of scale ~$145k salary.
Are people back to handshaking?!? I’m meeting a client for the first time in person and unsure if I should go in for the shake. I don’t want to make them feel uncomfortable but also I feel it’s so awkward not to when meeting someone
A recruiter shared a salary band of 110-120 during an initial phone screen and I said it’s within expectation but didn’t commit to a number. However, if I get an offer, is it possible to negotiate after hearing the responsibilities of the position? I’d ideally like 125-135, but haven’t negotiated before. Appreciate any tips!
Do you all have any tips for morning sickness? I’m 7 weeks pregnant and almost haven’t been able to function the last three days. I’m going to call my doctor tomorrow to see what she recommends, but I would be grateful for any tips you can provide in the meantime.
How much better are the exits ops from MBB vs T2. Don’t think I want to do consulting forever. But close to getting offer to lateral. Do I take it and exit in 1-2 years or just exit from T2? Thanks 🐠
Interested in leaving the firm at a critical time in my current project for personal reasons; is this going too far in terms of burning bridges? I'm the lead on the project.
What industry opportunities are available for a healthcare consultant with policy expertise and some experience in HIT? I have 5.5 YOE in consulting, 2 health related masters MPH Epidemiology and MSW Social Policy from an Ivy League. I’m don’t mind the WLB in consulting but I’m just tired of the environment and want to do something meaningful that pays well.
A lesson on bureaucracy: Red tape works both ways - watch as I divest the Tax and Audit practices with no way to stop me. 😇
Does referral (a random one e.g. from someone at MBB whom you don’t personally know), make a difference in applying for roles with MBB?
How do you get a promotion soon? Also, how do I fetch for leadership opportunities? Just started out with rank 44
Does the firm have the ability to actively monitor skype chats? Does the people consultant have the power to oversee or someone else? Just curious
