It sounds like there is A LOT of grey area at A&M. It’s a catch 22, A lot of times we are thrown in situations with no prior experience and there is a chance that you’d need a few reps before being good at that type of work. On the other hand if you don’t have prior experience in something and want to save yourself from failing, then you don’t get picked for a projects and don’t get a good bonus. How is this a sustainable model, its full of stress, dependency on MDs and constantly walking on eggshells.

At PWC did you mean under? I’m saying basically everyone there left b4 to actually get paid, so most should have experience in their area/industry or whatever

It’s not as intense as you make it seem. Just gotta be pro-active, can’t wait around for things to come to you. We don’t have as much structured training as Big 4 so you have to actively seek mentorship. It’s a go-getter culture. You get what you put in

You don’t have the job at A&M yet. So start your Deloitte job and you can resign if you get an offer from A&M that you like

PEPI is great and I highly recommend it here. I work in Commercial Operations (COMOPS) vs MAS, but the MDs in that group are good.

Thank you! I will see if I wanna move. Don’t see any role for associate or senior associate - not sure why the recruiter said they were looking for all levels.

I think I’ve asked this in about 5 different threads and haven’t gotten an answer yet. What’s the wlb like at A&M on average in MAS? As in expectations/reality of work weeks (40, 50, 65+?)

100% recommend it here. The pay will be much higher than Deloitte. But you have to be a strong performer. 2 bad projects in a row could kill your career here

I am in the process of negotiating an offer for a new job. At my current job, bonuses will be paid out on august 20th. The bonus is sizable so I would like to stay long enough to obtain it. Ideally, I would wait until the bonus hits my account before I put in my 2 weeks. If the new job wants me to start sooner than august 20th, is it acceptable to say that I want to stay because of the bonus, or should I give a different reason? Is it a bad look if I say I want to stay for the bonus?

Honest question.

Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
