Will be up for a promotion to a corporate finance manager position soon bumping my salary to ~$150k. Is an MBA worth it to continue to grow within corporate finance? I feel like I dont need an MBA to grow at my current firm (looking at the MD profiles) but I dont see myself working here forever. Reason i am hesitant is because of the high tuition of programs and the salary outcomes are similar to what i am already making if i plan to not go into MBB/IB

Hey guys, I’ve recently started interviewing for a position outside my firm. I was wondering who makes the decision to hire? Is it the interviewers (MD’s, VP’s, analysts) or is it the recruiter that reached out to me who gets the final say? I’m crushing it with the directors, Vp’s but not really talking too much sith the recruiter. Please help

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!

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 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?
