I've 6.5 yrs of experience in automation testing & agile methodology. Currently in CL9. I joined ACN with mindset that I'll move into management role after couple of years, but they put me into a project which is 100% opposite to my previous experience, both domain and techn wise. I'm planning to take up Agile Project Management role immediately (Scrum Master or PO) & my supervisor said he will help me making the shift. Is it worth for me to make this shift right now? Recently completed MBA.
End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
Has anyone given two weeks notice to leave to another big 4 and NOT been terminated immediately and finished out the entire two weeks?
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Going to an MBA Women’s Conference in a few weeks where the dress code was just shared as business formal. Ladies, where are your favorite places to get cute navy blue or gray power suit separates? I’ve always been the sleek, all black dresser, so need to expand my wardrobe. Also, can I get away with being a little more fun with my clothing choices or is it frowned upon? I definitely lean more toward the Vince and Aritzia staples rather than a classic business look.
BCG- Is this a good time to submit an application for consultant role as an industry hire (with a referral) or has the focus now totally shifted towards MBA grads?

How challenging is it to get a PMP
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Hi Fishes, Need your guidance/suggestion. This is for one of my friends. She is MBA-Finance fresher & looking for relevant opportunities. Any leads would be helpful.
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
I see people get their MBAs from top schools and will land jobs that are wayyy beyond what they would with their normal years of experience - like people with 4 yoe + 2 years of mba getting senior manager or director roles when they were still like senior analysts before going back to school. Why is it that a $200,000 degree and a few extra credits suddenly gives someone all these new skills and an additional 4 years of experience? Am I missing something here

This is a sincere question. What is a good raise percentage wise? I received about a 10% raise and am trying to gauge how good it is given the market and area I am in. For context: just entering my second year, non-bay/LA area in California, public entity work, ~100k first year salary, ~1800 billable requirement. Thanks!
I’ve received several take home assignments that clearly use real company data or give a good indication to a company’s future strategy. If I wanted to be petty, assuming I haven’t signed any NDA or fine print promising secrecy, could I share this information publicly without facing legal repercussions? Obviously I know it’s ill advised and this is purely hypothetical, but just from a legal standpoint, would I get in trouble? Seems like an obvious way to get back at a company.

Looking into Senior positions at PWC, EY and a few other firms. Can anyone tell me what the culture is like in GCR, International tax or indirect tax? For example, I’ve heard indirect tax at EY is more relaxed with busy season especially positions in the income tax/franchise, credits and incentive, and VAT groups. Also, is there an expected sign on bonus or salary for S1 in Tax?
