It's pretty possible at Bain if you're not picky about industry and willing to fly on short notice (for demand-based transfers). We also have established programs for longer transfers

Tagging - curious about answer

I think it varies by firm. McK supposedly yes, Bain no, BCG somewhere between. No idea for AP

Ehh i wouldn't say it's common here Totally depends on ratings and industry of expertise

It's all about your own ability to network and some degree of luck. There are established programs for longer-term transfers to international offices (though many of those still require partners in those offices vouching for you), but single international projects really depend on you knowing leaders or getting connected to leaders who are doing international work.

I’ve done a few. It’s been cool. Feel free to dm with questions.

I've done a lot. I guess it depends from the practice

What practice are you in?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

Hi Fishes, Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.
