Considering MBB offers here. Background = ~2YOE at tier 2 (think LEK/EYP/S&). Mck role is a Junior Associate position with the highest salary offer, BCG and Bain offering an experienced AC equivalent position (with a potentially faster promotion track to SAC etc). I've heard and seen that McK experienced hires often do worse on average than BCG/Bain esp at junior levels and wanted to get some thoughts on how I should make my decision. Thank you!
Negotiating an offer for senior consultant EY cyber practice. Any insights on salary and sign-on bonus?
So needing to work 45 hours in advisory going forward, "because professionals already work that much" is a really shitty explication - probably won't get a bump in comp either.

I’m interviewing for in-house and firm roles and I’m not sure how to navigate the compensation issue. My first job out of law school was with a state regulatory agency so comp was slotted and basically limited to salary and PTO. What should I be looking for when I interview in-house? With a firm? I don’t want to leave compensation on the table and end up feeling undervalued later.
What does partner compensation look like? Where do partners generally start out and how is partner pay structured? Also, what is the "buy in" at each firm?
Currently a SC at a big 4, and have an offer to come in as an experienced analyst at Mck, is this a good move? NYC, and salary is slightly lower.

Does anyone ever get fired from a Big 4? I have a staff that I have no idea how she made it through. Much lower level of performance than even the interns.
What are your success stories about succession planning? I was hired as a lateral to work on/help sustain a retiring partner's book of business. During my interview in 2017, he said his target retirement would be 2019-2021. Now, after a good 2020 (for our practice area), he mused that he might not retire until 2025. I don't want him to feel pushed out, and have a lot to learn from him, but I do want to help/plan handoff of work. Interested in guidance for how to have these conversations!
I left my BigLaw job earlier this year to take some time off and/or retire early. I now have an offer from an old colleague, now at a boutique, to write briefs on a contracting basis. We haven’t discussed pay yet—what would be a reasonable hourly rate to ask for?
Hi! Does anyone have advice / resources for interviews as an investment analyst or chief of staff at a VC? Would really appreciate it!
Left public accounting as an Audit Manager to take a Controller position in private. Realizing I don’t want to get stuck in a Controller position LT and would like to possibly be in FP&A if I stayed in private.

Former Senior Manager in Advisory here - does anyone feel like it’s a steep wall trying to break into tech industry for any role that has a manager title (e.g., Manager, XYZ Function)? I exited as a Senior Program Manager (IC role), I could absolutely not find anyone in industry willing to trust me managing people. Has anyone felt the same? What’s the reason for this wall? I’ve managed tons of teams and managed their career dev while at Big 4...what am I not seeing that I should see?
Living alone in a new city, I thought WFH would be lonely and depressing. Turns out I love not dealing with coworkers AND I've been reconnecting with old friends on animal crossing. This isnt so bad😂
when you have a job offer and want to negotiate the salary, would you do it via email or over the phone?
I interviewed with an ECD mid-last week and immediately after got some bad news that completely derailed the rest of my week. Because of that, I never even thought about sending a thank you email, but I’m now realizing that probably looks bad. Any tips on how to deal with this?
Confirmed! Promotion from Specialist to Manager. Any thoughts on what to expect for raise?
Anyone here who interviewed with/ work for DoorDash S&O team? Would love to hear your experience and any advice. Thanks!
Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
Anyone need referral for startup for following roles can ping me - Power BI developer - Azure developer - Business Analyst - Project Manager - QA (Automation). Loc: Pune
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
