Does McKinsey and BCG go for external hires for the “Principal” role (level below MD/Partner) Or is everyone home grown at this level.

Currently interviewing for a in-house strategy role, had a case interview and behavioural with a manager and two SMs in the team Now I have two more interviews with the directors in the team, and then if successful with the MD.

Curious what folks honest opinions are of Protiviti as a place to build an MD career (new-ish B4 Principal not at risk, but not feeling like the best fit for me culturally). Deep into the recruiting process on the tech / digital / D&A side for a leadership role and have been impressed to date with the culture and senior leadership. Seems like they are making the appropriate investments to drive growth and lots of market upside. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have an MD at my former place of work helping me find a position in a different state as I will be relocating. We spoke Wednesday and he said he’ll shoot out an email to get the ball rolling. He told me to reach out to him if I had any questions. Should I follow up for an update? If so, when?

My MD offered me an expanded role with more responsibility, that he said he would make official in a week right when January started. Since then, he went quiet. I was drowning in work in Jan-Feb and did not follow up on it. I met him for a 1:1 in February and I did not bring it up then (my bad, I accept). I have my March 1:1 coming up and will be bringing it up then. But it bothers me as to why he offered something and then went radio silent. Have I lost the opportunity? Anyone seen this before?

Hello Deloitte PPMD 🐠, I spoke to a D PPMD recruiter recently for possible opps with D. I was told that most of the people at this level will come in as MD, with a possible path to Partnership.

I am 25 yoe, at svp level, over 500k tc. Should I even explore an MD role at D? My Preference is for Partnership track. Thanks.

Probably answered somewhere, but I couldn’t find it down the chain. All the viewpoints here seem to be about equity Partners. How does it differs for an MD?
