I've been passed up for promotion. I know that if my mental health had been better this past year, I probably would have been promoted. Spent too many days just trying to survive rather than excel. 😡

Working at ACN right now, 2 YOE. Will pivoting over to a startup in a more software sales-based role for another 2 years before my MBA (and moving internationally for this) add to, or take away from my story? I’m thinking: Cons: less brand recognition, shows I didn’t stick around long enough to show progression, strength of recommenders, lower pay Pros: international experience, less conventional background and shows I have a more diversified skill, probably more impact @ a startup. Thoughts?
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions?

Advice on how to encourage more from a team member that does the bare minimum? They often aren’t very responsive online and a simple task will go on for days with little improvement. This is an individual I’m managing from another consulting firm, so the dynamic is different than your typical team.. so I’m not totally sure if it’s even in my wheelhouse to reprimand when it’s warranted. For weeks now I’ve been picking up the slack. My personality is not to be a hard-ass Manager. Help!
Is pharma still hiring like crazy? I’ve always worked on shopper/CPG/retail and got a new job a few months ago but feeling burnt out on consumer goods and realizing that pharma/health is more aligned with my longer term interests.
