Why is every role a ‘business analyst role’?!

Bc we make our projects enter their own project demand and they are too lazy to do the homework to identify the right role titles. So Business Analyst it is.

Absolutely this..

Seems to be the most vague and encompassing, it can mean excel work or PMO. Data to anything really .

Gotta start somewhere. Why does a title have you stressed today?

Because I’ve just joined consulting after 5 years in industry, with a 40% increase in salary yet every role feels ‘business analyst-y’. I’m starting to think this is just consulting..

My wife is an M7 MBA student, graduating next year. She is debating if she should take a lower paying product manager role (no prior PM experience) or a higher paying management consultant role post-MBA (PM offer TC is almost 40k lower than consulting offer, both are big firms). Her long term goal is to get an executive position (slightly prefer a product over strategy role) at a startup. Any advice from the consulting bowl would be appreciated!

So I went through recruiting at ACN and the recruiter said they want to go forward with an offer. We discussed some numbers and she said she'll get back in a week. It's been 2 weeks and now I'm getting total radio silence. I was referred for the role and the guy who referred me also got a mail stating that they want to move with the offer. Anyone got any idea what could be happening?

Should I still try to negotiate salary after accepting a offer? It is from Accenture for a security analyst position. Since I’m basically a new grad I assumed negotiating salary wouldn’t be worth it. Until I talked to someone on the security team there and he told me I should at least be a senior analyst since I am coming in with a Masters. Should I try to negotiate to a senior role and the salary or leave it? It’s my only cybersecurity offer. Also looking for FAANG,big4or MBB referrals :)

I took a new job in order to move across the country for my husband's promotion and I hate my new job. The role sold to me by the recruiter and company leadership is not at all what I am actually doing. I am so overworked it's unreal. At first I thought that maybe I just sucked, even though I'm a seasoned sales professional with 11 years experience, but then I found out that I have 227 accounts vs the 35 & 64 that my counterparts have. Do I go over my boss's head and discuss with leadership?

26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.
