Recently received offers from Accenture Strategy and Parthenon SSG (Undergrad) ! Which one would you take in terms of projects, culture, WLB, MBA and exit opportunities? ACN's offer is better in terms of starting pay.

Congrats! EYP is generally known to have a stronger brand in strategy consulting and if you want to exit to PE you'll be much more equipped here. WLB will probably be better at Accenture but can also be pretty good at Parthenon depending on what kind of project you're staffed on.

I don't think I've met anyone in the industry who actually takes Vault seriously lol. I'm also just speaking to general consensus, both from the overall sentiment from our fellow consultants (both in person and on FB) as well as cross-offer win rates. But yes of course I'm biased haha, Accenture strategy is great especially on the tech side. If OP is primarily interested in tech there aren't many places that are better to work at

Nice, I think Parthenon has a stronger PE opportunity and idk about ACN. No bad choices here, congrats

I think WLB here is second to none in the marketplace. I’m biased, but I’d also say the brand and exit opportunities are stronger here vs Parthenon due to the increased size of our business and alumni network. We have also committed to matching MBB comp - recently heard a commitment from a senior leader that this is a priority going forward. Currently, we pay $100k for our undergrads that go get MBAs in the form of tuition reimbursement if it is an elite enough program. But, an MBA is not a requirement to rise. Happy to answer any questions - just let me know!

Hi all, have been approached about an interesting buyside opportunity but have a few q’s. I’ve currently got a role in an alts investment team (pe primaries, and a little secondaries) at a bulge that pays well starting in Jan. New offer is at a sub-$1bn fund and a bit hybrid investment team and firm strategy. Does anyone have insight to the Secondaries/Primaires comp range from VP up (salaries, bonus, carry, etc)? How is the culture vs direct PE? Thoughts on big firm vs small fund over time?

Resume gap: My position will be abruptly end in December (was informed this week). However, I won't be interview ready in the next 2 weeks. So how bad does a gap of 1-2 months appear to tech recruiters? Common knowledge is it is a disadvantage to the candidate from a salary negotiation process. I'm also told hiring decisions at places like AWS & GCP take time and it might be a few months before an offer letter is received.

Nearing the end of the interview process for a mid level Product Designer role but experience wise I’d be considered more junior. What do I ask for in terms salary? (Sorry if it’s a stupid question) I’ve gone through whiteboarding and a design challenge so skill wise I think I’ve proven to them I am capable. They gave me a range for the role so would I just go with that? It’s higher than average in the market and one I’d be happy with but I feel weird since I’m not actually mid level.

I’m convinced that while practice does help, case studies are fundamentally designed to evaluate your critical thinking skills and IQ — which are immutable qualities. No matter how many mock cases I do, I can’t seem to figure out how they work and therefore can’t crack any interviews (10+ tries). I don’t think I’m as smart as I once thought 😕😕

Hi y’all. I’m trying to plan my future. My goal in the next several years is to exit to general corporate strategy (unless something better comes up). Right now I’m aligned vertically and horizontally (strategy + a specialized field). If I stay where I am geographically it may be hard to stay in my current industry once I exit. So the question becomes, can I exit to an industry outside of what I’m currently consulting for or should I reposition myself within Accenture to be more of a generalist.
