Lateral from where?

Econ consulting firm in Boston

Did you go to an ivy undergrad

@p1 yeah I was planning on sticking around for a year but wanted to start looking earlier just in case. @p2--yep

Then work your network and you have a shot

@op what does econ consulting entail/lifestyle/pay?

Econ consulting sounds fascinating

Sounds like OP is at analysis group. Thing is at the analyst level strat firms don't do offcycle recruiting

Stay at analysis group! Prestigious OP.

Not at analysis but one of its biggest competitors

Must be Cornerstone. Even then, I'd stay.

Didn't realize they were that prestigious lol

Hdy- They recruiter you from an ivy league school didn't they?

Corner office @ Cornerstone

Stay OP. If all us big 4 are interested in the work you do, trust that that it's better than our work. I suppose MBB might be different but I wouldn't know

Its not as big as a big 4 but probably harder to get into? But I did see online reviews for these companies and interviews are pretty much behaviorial. So I don't know how much prestige comes with economic consulting firms. I've heard of FTI!

May be a dumb question, but I’m an American planning on moving to London in the next couple years. When looking at rent prices, are listing costs shown per room or for the full flat? Ex: 2 bed flat at £1600...does this mean per person if I have a flat mate or would it be £800 per person?

I currently have 1.2M across investments saved and pull in 12k a month, post tax. Not including rent, I’m only spending a total of 1k a month, so I’ve got 11k left each month. When the pandemic is over, my spending will probably go up to about 3k a month if I factor in vacations. How expensive of a home should I feel comfortable buying?

For sales roles, Are commissions capped at AWS? Note, I am not asking about any other portion of comp, only specifically the variable commissions paid based on performance.

Lots of folks saying top performers make $500k+ but also saw a comment from someone a couple years ago who said that commissions are capped. This person was a non amazon employee so it's unclear how accurate that was.
