I think you’ll do more “strategy” work at A&M unless you network hard in CDP or get on ACN Strategy Projects

Reputation is a funny thing

Assuming you’re post-undergrad I went through the same questions a few years ago. Happy to chat if you want to DM.

Less digital work here. Accenture may be more well known, but I feel like the impact we have on clients here can be a lot more palpable. Depends on what you want to do. Happy to chat more if you have specific questions.

Looking for advice on the next step. So I started at my company just over 2 years ago as an entry level Sales admin with a split role and at the beginning of this year I moved fully into Sales Support and I'm kind of at a point where I coordinate and support the activity of my team, I fully process all orders and manage/maintain our CRM system, provide monthly & quarterly reports for our senior management team. Is this it? Am I at the top end of this role and need to ask for more progression?

What do MBA grads do at tech firms? The data on any B-School's website says that consulting pays more than tech to MBA grads, however, going by the threads on this app, it seems as if tech pays more.

I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up.

Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.
