Anybody have some insights they can share on the Pyxis team Bain & Company? I have a phone screen for a position tomorrow and I’m trying to get a sense of how integrated it is with the rest of the company.

Don’t know a ton about Pyxis but have heard good things. My current case team may try to leverage them for a piece of work. The way these types of teams (e.g., Pyxis, FWRD, advanced analytics group, and others) work at Bain is that they are internal services typically hired by a case team for a specific project. Level of integration may vary depending on the specific ask. I don’t know about Pyxis, but I have seen FWRD, AAG, and Adapt (another internal service) get pretty integrated to the point that they’re treated similar to a “normal” member of the case team. These roles can be client facing. That said, it will likely differ from case to case depending on the specific workstream.

Also, should probably mention that they’re viewed highly by the rest of the org and general consulting staff. Definitely integrated into office culture and social events if that’s important to you.

Thanks, this is all super helpful context! Out of curiosity, do you think there’s any mobility between Pyxis and the general consulting practices? Let’s say I transition to this role and 3-5 years from now I’m missing consulting, would I have a reasonable shot at making that move?

Not really no. Definitely not a path that's meant to happen. It would look like outside experienced hiring.

I was offered a position at Deloitte for ~26k more than I’m making currently, but they told me that in 2.5 years when the contract is over I will be out of a job.

I also just started a new project at BAH last month so I feel uneasy leaving after a month. Can someone at Deloitte give me more insight about PDM work at the company?

I'm starting to think I should sell the property and just invest in something where we only have to pay long term capital gains of 20%. Am I thinking about this wrong?
