There’s a huge range of talent at startups vs banking where it’s generally consistent. Very hard to go from working with guys top of industry to shitheads

I worked at a professional services firm that was essentially a startup. Hated it. My first MD who hired me quit after 6 months. 2nd MD was brutal. Left 5 months later to go into Banking. Company has little future. I learned very little and felt like I had to teach others more than I learned from them.

It’s tough, a lot of fun, but the chaos becomes taxing. I’d recommend anyone who isn’t lazy try it you’ll learn a lot. Just be aware it’s about as depressing as Silicon Valley was

Got a local project after 8 years of consulting. Hate it. Although it's a 10 minute walk from my place.

Anyone know why consulting comp is so much more in the US than UK? I’ve been seeing posts about first years in US making 75k+ at b4 meanwhile here you start on 30k if you’re lucky... and that’s London which is as HCOL as it gets!

How do you all stay motivated to study for the GMAT. I’m feeling exhausted between client work and firm initiatives and weekends I’m feeling drained too? Any tips and tricks would be very appreciated!

Every time I interview I hear about how the organization is flat and everyone’s scrappy, and offices don’t exist because teams don’t tolerate the walls that divide them. I respect all that, but...
