OP - thanks for clarifying. EZ - You start as an associate (no real way to join at a higher level) and are apprenticed in how to do the job. They have a very high success rate after the first year (ie - survive the first year and in 4-6 years you will probably make partner). The downside is that you have to restart as associate. RRA will bring you in at a higher level (and higher pay), but you will have to learn how to do the job a bit more yourself. Both have good cultures, and good people.

What sort of experience? Working for? Or using? They are both good firms - very different setups though. These are two of the Top Tier head hunters - part of them 'shrek' group (spencer stuart, Hendrick and struggles, Russell's, Egon, Korn Ferry)

ATK1, looking for the "working for" perspective. They all seem to be loaded with ex-industry executives and seasoned mgmt consultants. They want to over index on ex-consultants as their clients expect them to be more holistic talent advisors and are interested in human capital strategy mandates similar to what traditional mgmt consulting firms do. Peaked my interest but need to learn more. Any insights would be extremely appreciated. Seems like a closely guarded industry at that level and not much information out there.

I’m looking for recommendations for a bench top bandsaw. I’m willing to invest in a nicer one down the line, but right now I want to keep it under $300. I mostly see Powertec, Shop Fox, or Wen. There is a $375 Grizzly I’d consider if it’s way better than the others. Any thoughts?

Considering offer as assistant controller at a small HF shop. Currently audit A2, will be promoted to S1 this Summer, and in HCOL market. No CPA. Haven't gotten the details yet, but recruiter sent me for 95-100 base, expecting ~20% annual bonus, full medical dental, free lunch and gym FWIW. Is this low? Is it worth sticking around 1 more year as senior for potentially better? The position has a lot of growth potential, as the shop is quickly expanding. What other factors do I consider?

Finally, now that WFH is more accepted (thanks 2020), do you think more industries will “reimagine” this arbitrary 40+ hr. work week? Some orgs tried/have proven to be more productive with less (e.g. 6hr work days, 4 day work weeks) but I don’t know if consulting leaders are enthusiastic about normalizing this since “it’s the land of billable hours”... What would it take?
