Any advice on exit opps if I want to be involved in capital allocation (strategic M&A, divestitures, creating value,etc)? CFO track? More of a Corp dev role? PE portfolio companies could work?

Currently a PL at BCG, HSW MBA and prior work experience in public markets investing but not a ton of case work (do have some) touching on these topics.

I’m interesting in this as well. For Associates, PE is a viable option. But for more senior people, I’ve heard PE isn’t as open to recruiting from consulting.

Thanks - what does your group do in Corp Strat? Is the company active in M&A and divestitures? Do you do only high level stuff or is it more like internal consulting services for business units? Also, what’s the path after Corp strat look like?

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
