Anyone familiar with Bank Of America as an exit target company. What are your thought? Good or bad? And what position would I come in if I am currently a Consultant?

Your most likely exit is as a project mgr in tech/ops focused on back office projects ranging from tech platform upgrades to compliance projects to product rollouts. All banks have a huge # of ex B4 and tech consultants in these type of roles, try to find a role on a team that focuses on your area of interest. Depending on how you perform in interviews you'd probably come in at the AVP level although you might have to push for that. You could try

If you’re a C you’d probably go in as a senior analyst or early associate. Depends on YOE. Would you be looking for NYC or Charlotte? What’s your focus? If technology consulting you’d probably do some sort of process improvement or IT job. I have family that does IT (Database and infrastructure) at BB banks and hearing them speak about their job is painful

Like technology strategy? I could see a case being made. Corporate strategy? Probably less likely tbh. Also depends where you got your MBA and which city you’re targeting.

I am in management consulting. The majority of my experience is in financial services conducting data integration within agile teams but I also have a background in Project Management and currently pursuing my PMP. I am open to all opportunities but would like to do more Strategy type of work because of what I learned during my MBA and a couple of Strategy projects that I have been on.

Starting interview process for product role with a Series A startup that raised $10M What are the key questions I should be asking? My thoughts: 1. What is the valuation? 2. What is the exit strategy? 3. What is the product (very vague idea after phone screen) 4. How will my boss help my growth? Very early in the process as you can see. Key concern is that I’d report to a Senior PM who has 1 year of consulting exp. and 1 year at the company. I’m approaching 1 year of consulting exp.
