How long does it take EY FSO Advisory to provide interview feedback? I believe I had my final round on Monday and haven’t heard back yet. They also updated the job posting date. Bad sign?
Anyone send out a meeting agenda ahead of a new client meeting? includes bios of all staff, risk/time questions, map of office, firm history, etc? Try to eliminate most of the unknowns ahead of time.
If I apply to a position on StaffIt, does the person who posted it get an automated notification? Or does it have to flow through my Resource Manager?
Anyone has experience flying with 4th luggage with American? EXP here and called the hotline - policy states the 4th bag is $200 which I find pretty steep.
My friend just asked to rent my car for 3 months. Any thoughts on if this would be a good idea? I don’t drive my car very often and could probably survive for 3 months without one. She would pay for the insurance and a rental fee each month but it still just seems strange to me.
What are your thoughts on moving from analytics consulting (incentive compensation, forecasting) to strategy consulting? I recently made the same move and am wondering if I made the right choice?
First year Paralegal here - graduated from a small liberal arts school and have been working in the corporate practice at a well ranked firm. The majority of my experience has been working in private funds, financings, some M&A, and limited Real Estate work. I think I enjoy the idea of a few years in big law after law school to pay off loans (undergrad+law school), but am not sold b/c I have been remote since I started in January and rarely get to interact live with deal teams. How can I tell?
Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
I'm such a baby. I say I hate hate PA. Then I chicken out if recruiters call me. I must secretly love this shit. I think I have issues...
Is the worst over? How is everyone’s firm doing? MBB, Deloitte, Strategy&, EYP, Accenture, etc
For those that joined consulting post-MBA, do you wish you had started earlier or do you feel it was the right time? 2 years in and wondering if I should commit to another 3 years for B-school...
Despite being vaccinated, I came down with COVID last week. I’m wiped out. Zero energy, high fever, coughing. On Friday partner calls to tell me he wants me to write a letter which I decline due to my condition. He respond it can wait until Monday. It’s Monday and my symptoms are largely unchanged. Am I seriously expected to work right now? I can barely stay awake long enough to write this question.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊
