I’m starting as a Manager at one of the big 4 in 3 weeks. I left my tenure track job 4 yrs ago so I’m accustomed to non-academic work but still intimidated. Advice? Will I succeed this first year?
PhD, JD, MD Consultants
has anyone created a research plan? applying for faculty roles at a university and a recent PhD, with only a published dissertation to my name
anyone here an entrepreneur? I have a PhD in org psych and 20+ years in Big 4 human cap... starting up my own firm and wondering about billing rates. what hourly rate do you charge for your services?
Currently an MBA student at M7, and already have a PhD in ChemEng. No prior consulting background. What would be good firms to target and any preferred ones for good work life balance?
Currently a M7 PhD student. Former Big 4 consultant and veteran. Want to go back into consulting (preferably strategy). I have an Ivy Master’s. Would a MBA be silly if this is my goal?
Any other MDs here? Are you preparing for industry exits or the long haul in consulting? I genuinely love this industry so far an am curious how much of my background will actually be useful after SA.
What does the recruitment process look like for PhD candidates for the Big 4 and tier 2 firms? I know MBB recruits PhDs, but am unclear about the rest.
Have a friend who is at an engineering PhD program. I'm trying to help shape her resume, but would love a second look from those that understand the differences in grad school recruiting.
I have a PhD, but damn does an MBA not seem fun and useful for networking. Has anyone gone after PhD and a few years of consulting?
So who is thinking about leaving/going back to (academia/medicine/law) after 2 years are up? Not sure I want the PL job even though I think I could make a great manager (elsewhere)
Any MDs willing to talk to a MD with significant clinical experience who is interested in consulting?
Just to kick off, feel free share your degree/expertise. Always interesting to learn others’ backgrounds
