Why doesn’t BCG trust us even a bit that for $80, they’re asking photo proof that we had affiliation dinner together??

SEA PAs that you admire the most in terms of “quality of projects - you want” and “leadership know what they are doing in project” => So, you like what you do in relatively sustainable way.

Reminiscing... Favourite hotels in SEA?

I miss checking into the St. Regis...

Best and worst thing about SEA?

What is a reasonable industry exit salary range ($USD) for SEA as a C1 (not SIN)?

Quick poll for A/Cs. Are you going to: > Stay > Leave, like NOW > Leave before end of year > Leave in 2022, after 2021 gets bonus paid

Why is affiliation so bad at this place. Don’t feel connected to anyone.. it is super transactional.. when I was recruiting for BCG, didn’t know it’ll be so bad. Anyone else feel the same? Or is it be… more


Saw quite a few posts on grade inflation in other regions, likely NAMR. Is it the same in SEA?

Heard there will be a pay raise across the board for A/Cs in North America. Anyone know if something similar will happen in SEA too?


What are the best and worst constellations to work with? From PA and country view?

Views on staffing. GO!

What do you think of the new travel policy? When flying from Singapore this is still a huge gamble… but at least the company is more accommodating now, which is a welcome move.

What does it take and how long does it take to move from Partner to MDP?

What is 1st year MDP comp in SEA?


Would you like to be like your current MDP(s)? In terms of content knowledge, behaviour, relationship management style (not in terms of salary - answer to which is probably - yes)


Can any of the MDPs / Partners on this bowl ensure that Jaime and the rest of the MDPs join this bowl?? To ensure that the leadership can listen to any concerns being raised here. This is like an offi… more


Did anybody *ever have* a chill project in SEA? By chill I mean 55 hours a week, and quite a few protected evenings

I know we don’t have voluntary transition support in SEA. Has anyone taken few months off (LOA) at PPL level to find a new job and quit ? It’s getting hard to explore external options while in 24/7 fi… more


Have been working 75-85 per week consistently for the last couple of weeks. Has this been the norm for everyone as the systems are so tight? Or is it just me in a under staffed case?

Whoa! I heard this too from fellow PPLs during a get together recently at a colleague’s place. A strong, credible leader with real expertise is needed to lead gamma capability in our system otherwise we will lose all talent in the region. We also got to know of another high profile senior exit. They should integrate DV Gamma Platinion all under Peter. He did a great job in partnering and co-creating DV with Hanno to jointly build and scale the team.
