I was offered a sr director role. No case - all behavioral. They're very operational and want people willing to roll up their sleeves so you need to be able to talk through ops projects at a detailed level. Not sure what firm you're coming from but they dont value pure strat or top line growth experience, focus is on cost takeout.

Thanks S&1. Do you mind sharing your level and years of experience? Also, what made you pass the offer? Appreciate your time and inputs here. Very helpful.

I took the s& offer instead - better vibe w the team I interviewed with and more interesting work imo. 5 yrs post mba

Congratulations on finding the right fit. Which firm did you move out from (Big 4, Boutique, MBB etc.) and what level were you at when you moved?

I’ve seen a lot of posts on twitter that have a ton of rts blaming the police for criminalizing homelessness and drug addiction instead of fixing the problem...so basically the police are now the scapegoats for elected officials and prosecutors?

We gotta own up to our part.
