Came very close recently. Just turned down an ACN interview as things are picking back up in my practice. It's not worth going back down to the analyst level (I'm a senior now) and going to less enjoyable work. That was my circumstance anyway

@ey1 why not just interview for the Consultant level at ACN?

I reached out to a BCG partner through cold email. Without chatting with me, the partner connected me with a recruiter. The recruiter offered to chat and answered any questions I have but didn’t ask too much abt my background. At the end of the conversation, she said something like “lmk when you apply and I will keep an eye out for you. “The partner definitely didn’t put a referral in cuz she still doesn’t know me yet. Should I let a friend of mine at BCG refer me then let the recruiter?

Anyone made the jump from agency to freelance PM and can live to tell about it? I want the highs and the lows. I’ve been seriously considering it more and more, but need to know the truth about what to expect. More than anything, I want to be remote and be able to make my own schedule. Any pointers on how to get started? I’d love to do a budget exercise as well, to see how to make it all work—but I know it’s very unpredictable. Any tips/tricks are appreciated!

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit?
