If you’re a senior 1 or 2 in audit thinking about FDD and need a referral please reach out
I'm SM with offer to exit but I've spent a fair amount of time engaging client at the csuite and board level. Got offers in tech (strategy& ops) but worried about lack of visibility/sexy work. Cont..
I have a question for those at Amazon or any other FAANG organization. How does your company view transfers/relocations. For instance, you were brought in for a Sr. Mgr role in SF but want to go to DC. Is there an internal transfer portal or do you need to apply for the job? How is this viewed in the company? Thanks!
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets
Feeling stuck in my role, but unsure of my next move. Move agencies? Stick to social/PR? Acct mgmt? Get an MBA to become an eventual brand mgr? I’m so overwhelmed and feel like I have to specialize.
Well I'm gonna ask for help on here, anyone know if their firm is hiring in consulting either S&O or HC?
Looking for fellow applicants (round 1 targeting M7). Extremely nervous about submitting and torn between shooting for MBA and seizing the current hiring spree.
Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
Hey McKinsey Fish! Is there any real luck of applying to a job on the website? I applied to an implementation role that I know I would be qualified for but without any referral. Been a few weeks so was just hoping to atleast see a rejection 😁
Ladies who have been promoted to a manager role, what would you say is the greatest different between it and your time as a consultant/senior consultant? I know this varies slightly between firms but I’m considering going for a manager promotion down the line but want to make sure I’m comfortable with what will be expected of me (and see what I need to work on to be successful).
Anyone hiring? Looking to get into Cyber Commercial on the tech side. Trying to leave the Fed side. The job hunting struggle is real 😔.
Currently a sr. analyst at ACN in strategy looking to make a jump. Anyone willing to make a referral to MBB/OW/ATK/LEK?
A potential local role that I haven’t been allocated to versus a role that would require travel to four different cities. Have a 3 year old and one year old and can’t be on bench that long. Thoughts
Looking for advice! I work in tax law - I did ~3 years at a small firm after law school, got my LLM while working full time, then transitioned to a position in-house where I’ve been ~1 year. I dislike the company’s lack of transparency, it’s internal management structure, and the politics in the tax law department in particular. On top of that, I’m already feeling burnt out (likely due to the work volume and multiple forced resignations in my dept in the past couple months).CONTINUED IN COMMENTS
ITW Illinois Tool Woks is another loser. I'm sharing all active trades. this is another re-opening trade. I opened this at the end of November, and the long is down about 45%. The trade is only down about 15% though as the shorts have been rolled a few times already. Since I have 82 more days in the long, I can roll the shorts at least 7 times and even at $1 each the trade is a small winner. If TIW even goes down another 50% it becomes a decent winner.
A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?
Quitting the firm in the next two months and have 15 PTO days left unused. Does it make sense to roll off my project and then use my 15 days of PTO before quitting or to cash out my 15 days?
Checked in and had issues with fridge for a little bit, and fridge was replaced but maintenance was in room for a bit of time. Would you ask for points for inconvenience, or no since they fixed it?

Can I quit after a year as a staff 1 if I don’t want to be in the accounting field? Any ideas for jobs that would be a good transition after 1 year of Big 4 experience and wanting to transition to a different job field?
Thoughts on working in equity research? Typical job responsibilities, experiences, culture, etc?
For those of you who are successful in your interview process and landed on an offer, did you feel like you ace every question they asked in in the interview and articulate perfectly? I’m a bit nervous now Bc I felt like I could have spoken better 😭😭😭😭

I finally did it. I quit and turned in my resignation in June. I’m now have been working from home for United Health Care. I wished I would have done this years ago. I started teaching right out of college 20 years ago and thought all jobs were as bad as teaching I was so wrong. My new job is not stressful I now have a normal life and look forward to going to work.
