DDB Chicago? Once proud agency. Loses McDonald’s (everyone knows We Are Unlimited was a shell for DDB), State Farm and Cap One in less than a year. WTF...
Anyone see Wendy’s post on Instagram about We Are Unlimited today? Seems like a weird post/thing to celebrate after all the layoffs this week.
How will the Chicago market look after We Are Unlimited layoffs? Do we know how many are losing their jobs? Chicago is already saturated jobwise and we're on the brink of a recession.
With the fall of GTB and We Are Unlimited, what do you think is the future of the one-client agency model?
Any freelance sr. or ACD art directors looking for work in Chicago? We're hiring at we are unlimited on McDonald's. Shoot me a note with your work at more
As an experienced hire on MD track I find the MC culture/mindset odd. It’s not that deep, doesn’t need to be intense. And the $ isn’t spectacular. I suspect it’s different for analysts/consultants?
Contemplating grad school for an MBA. Still in the infancy stages of preparing, but was curious if a good/great GMAT score and solid rec letters would help outweigh an ok undergrad GPA? ....Cont’d...
How does relocating analysts instead of traveling them work? Do they get you an apartment and per diem or some kind of bonus? Or does it completely depend on the project?
TFW your internet is down so you stand outside a Starbucks to open Webex because the music is way too loud in there for calls

Wanted to share with everyone who's trying to get into MBB. Y'all can share your experiences here and hopefully there are even a few MBB people who join to answer questions
As a new joiner analyst, I had my first meeting for a possible role and it doesn’t align to my interests. What is the best way to say I’m not interested in taking the role?
Would all AA EPs please do a fellow flyer a favor and tell AA they need to start calling EPs and Ps separately? I doubt there's a more dense pack of flyers than FB, so we collectively have influence!
What percentage increase in salary would make you consider jumping ship to a lateral move at a new firm trying to recruit you?
I got my first traffic citation ever this week and even though I’m definitely guilty I’m still butthurt because the cop was a jerk and now my insurance rates will go up. How do I suppress this Karen energy and move on?
I’ve heard that going from Big 4 to MBB even with M7 MBA is not very common. MBB wants their consultants to start “from the beginning.” Is this true? Do other firms like ATK/LEK/Wyman do the same?
Happy Saturday y'all! I just want to say this community rocks and keeps me sane in this sometimes toxic culture we know of as consulting. Cheers!!
First time not working during vacation since I joined consulting, literally feeling anxiety and don't know what to do with all the free time

Have a 4 hour interview with Deloitte Digital on Friday.. wish me luck 🐳🐳.. Deloitte folks.. any recommendations?
For folks who are “early” promotes do you find you’re generally stuck at your current company or are you able to get the same exit ops as other folks at your level? For example: McKinsey EMs / BCG PLs 2 years into their role 4 years out from undergrad. Can you get the same exit ops as any other EMs with MBAs etc. or do you kind of just need to stay at your current company and exit at an even higher level?
Entry level at boutique. My cohort are all on client site projects / travelling internationally. It has been inferred that I can’t do the same for at least 3/4 months (cont)
Anybody know why there appear to be so many open positions at Fenwick and West? Comments on the culture, work/life balance, diversity, etc.?
How much do your doctors visits cost on average? A checkup, maybe an additional exam here and there, follow ups. Trying to figure out if I have crappy insurance or just an expensive doctor :)
Helped a close friend through an entire interview process with prep, advice, the whole nine yards. I recently found out that he got the job offer, but from someone else in our friend group, and not from him directly. For some reason I felt pretty bad about that considering he didn’t even let me know after all the help I gave him. Am I being sensitive, or would you be upset about that too. Not sure how to feel about this...
What are you wearing to your firm's holiday party? Where did you shop for it? I need to figure something out this afternoon!
