Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
My boss loves to have every warm body possible in pitch meetings, even people who aren’t working on it. He will slack you out of the blue and expect you to drop everything to just sit there and make the team look “impressive.” Why are people like this? Don’t clients see right through it? Is it actually impressive to have 10+ people in the room if only half of them participate? 😑 it’s such a waste of everyone’s time.
I have had referrals from various firms and still no interviews. I have consulting experience on my resume.Ppl close to me are telling me to give up on getting another consulting job.I don’t want to.
Made it a year without getting fired, and my reward is google stock vest. What's the best restaurant you've visited in LA in the last year?
A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?
If I move into a financial analyst position after two years of audit experience (and 1 promotion) will i likely start at the bottom of the totem pole? Trying to get an idea of what my salary would be. I feel this role is kinda critical for my 20 -30 year plan so I’m willing to start at an A1 position again. any insight here would be great. Thanks
I have interviewed in BNP PARIBAS and got selected, final HR interview also done. Submitted documents on 5th sep including salary slips, ctc breakup, etc. How much time does it take to generate an offer letter.
It’s restructuring season. KPMG, GT, and other firms have begun announcing layoffs. Everyone should take some time to polish off their resume. It’s a cold world out there and loyalty means nothing to your employer. Here’s to hoping that everyone lands on their feet and I’ll see y’all in a happier future.
Got an offer from Guidehouse as a senior consultant in HIA back in January. The recruiter is MIA and not coming up with joining date and giving reasons like other PRoject team was put on bench and they will be allocated first before giving joining dates to the new hires. What should I do...if the recruiter comes back with the joining date. Should I join? What is the business situation at Guidehouse right now?
When you present the first round of social concepts to client (let’s say about 10 concepts total, trying to fill out their content calendar), do you stick with write-ups or show one execution per idea?
Ladies! 1 year out of college and currently making double what my boyfriend makes (high $80k vs. $45k) - I don’t have an issue with it and neither does he, but I do anticipate this trend of me making more continuing (bc consulting). He’s thinking of becoming a teacher (and currently a paralegal). Not sure what my question is but just kind of hoping for some reassurance that I’m not crazy/being naive for currently being fine with a potentially life long/growing salary gap?
Okay, I seriously love the group I’m in - audit. Very happy. Could do it for life. Genuinely. Interacting with another group (advisory) - they’ve really come to like me. I got an unsolicited interview

How would you feel when your manager hires someone who is in the same age as you, with a cpa and had worked in big 4 before. Meanwhile you don’t have any PA experience and only half way through cpa.
