Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾

Hello! Does anyone know of consulting firms that are still hiring for entry-level positions? Thank you!

No one outside the industry wants to work in media because of the lower compensation. Sometimes it's up to finding the right candidate to do the job. I think it's easier to find the candidate in the industry than trying to move someone from outside the industry to work in media.
