Just received an offer for moving to another consulting firm. Position is a level up and offered a base that is a little less than 30% increase from current salary. How should I negotiate as I was told this was a senior level potion during the interviews but unsure of the salary band and it’s a more niche firm and I am 3 yrs out of undergrad. Thanks!
Hey all, just wondering if anyone here has been through the referral process with McKinsey? An associate partner referred me two weeks ago and I haven't heard back yet. Trying to align McKinsey with my other interviews so hoping people here can give me a better idea. Also spoke with a senior partner a few days ago who said timeline shouldn't be an issue (after I explained everything) , but not sure if they actually looked into it or not.

Hey 🐠 buddies, serious advice question, really would appreciate you all's thoughts. I'm interviewing at a very small boutique firm that has some pretty decent sized clients. What are some risks and questions I should be asking myself and the new firm about moving over from D to them? Is this a dangerous move? Have any of you done something similar? It's a 30% pay increase and pretty good benefits package. I do tech implementations of all sorts, including AWS stuff, healthcare, whatever really.

Looking to resign in about a month. Really need a mental break from the corporate world. I’ve amassed about 2-3 years worth of salary in my investments to hold me through for however long.

TLDR; I’m about to quit, how bad does a 6-18 month employment gap look when looking to apply again to the workforce?

It’s happened twice with me now that I make it to final round interviews with MBB but unable to seal the deal. And based on the feedback, everything is good, case included except not hitting the nail on the head in minute details of the case. Has anyone else faced this? How do you overcome it? I did so much case prep but end up feeling so dejected when you make it this far only to hear “try again in a few months”

Do you take job interviews even if you are not currently looking to move? Don’t really want to go through the whole 3-4 week process for something I’m not 100% interested. That said, the pay seems 20% higher and it’s a big name firm so I’m still sort of curious...

Anyone have good threads RE: resume advice saved? Just finished first year in consulting after UG and want to start applying elsewhere. Few questions: Graduated w/ 3.4 GPA (business major)... should I list it or not? Not stellar but they may assume worse if I don’t I was president of an academic club at my school. Given that I only have 1 yr of professional experience, should I keep this on my resume? Separate experience at my company by project, or lump bullets together? Other advice?

I have Spanish speaking clients while my team is English speaking. We want to have real-time English subtitles of the translation during meeting and are trying find a meeting technology (like Teams, Webex, etc) with the feature built-in and/or add-on tech that we can use.

Do you have many LGBT friends and do you necessarily care if you do or don’t? I have one gay friend who I catch up with occasionally and I think my husband has two. I never really cared either way about it, however I feel like I’m at that point where you primarily make new friends through existing ones, and they are having children and making other “parent” friends. Between that and living in a SFH neighborhood in the suburbs, I’ve changed my viewpoint over the last few months.
