Anybody have some thoughts to share about doing an interview with an MD at Alvarez & Marsal (i.e. what to expect, good things to ask)?

I would focus on things such as how they think A&M is different than the B4, why they joined the firm themselves, why clients would use A&M instead of a B4, and what they see as both the good and bad things of working at A&M compared to where they came from. We also have very low turnover, so ask them why they think that is the case. I’d like to know these answers myself!

You can also see partner bios on the website - so that would be something to read through first imo. It could also trigger a good question.

I need advice y’all 😖 I’ve been interviewing with 2 agencies. Agency A is my dream place but they’re taking a long time to extend an offer. Agency B is intense/demanding but great I got an offer from agency B on Tuesday On Wednesday, I went through the 6th round of interviews with the CEO of agency A. I sent a follow up email this morning asking about next steps, but no response/no concrete offer just yet. I’m planning on emailing again before EOD about my other offer..SOS (1/2)

In a rapidly growing practice, and perhaps 2 years from (non-equity) “partnership”. I like my team and the work I do, but I’ve only ever been a consultant and am tempted to jump to industry to try it out. Interviewing for a Fortune 20 company and applying to others. Maybe FAANG. Let’s say I’m 60% driven by comp, 40% driven by impact. Am I crazy for looking to leave? Should I just continue to ride this one-way train?

In July I missed my promo to SM. A woman has been preferred even if she was underqualified (my MD's words), as at Accenture we have quotas for women. I'm interviewing with Deloitte, they told me I'll help building the practice. In the meantime I was assured by my MD that in December I'll get the promo. I don't really care changing company, even if I've built a network, I don't think I need to wait if I can. Your thoughts?
