Thank you! What is the WLB like in the group? What kind of roles do you see people from the group exit to?

PE DD

CDD

Highly contingent on which market you are in. For instance if you are in Europe its alot of dds, if you are in the Middle East - it can be everything from value creation to portfolio optimisation

Just CDDs or tech/IT/Ops DDs as well?

I’ve seen the group doing CDDs and ODDs but over indexed on the former

Is it worth billing actual hours to projects? Have a call with project manager and wondering the best approach. Suppose recently, leadership becomes concerned about project budget: they scrutinize deliverables more, and one person scheduled a call with my career coach. Timeline is compressed but P thinks is completely doable. Wondering what to do

Looking for advice. Have an upcoming tech case study as a final interview stage for VP technology consulting role. There is nothing to prepare in advance. Interviewer will brief me over Zoom and give me the case study instructions. I have the remainder of the first hour to prepare based on the scenario provided. In the second hour, I will present my response to the case study to a panel. Afterwards, there will be an additional time for interview questions and discussion with the panel.
