Opinion on PWC's Enterprise Support Services (ESS) practice? Just interviewed for the healthcare practice and am trying to understand culture and dynamic at the practice. Coming from EY
Folks - how do you prep for case interviews in half a week? Any resources you would point me towards? It’s been over 5 years since I last had interviews. Sure I am in consulting but I honestly don’t do this thing on the day to day so am very sure will be very rusty.
Rejected by 2 exit ops after on-sites where 2 of 3 recruiters sent a personal message/email saying something like "you seem great/qualified but not the right fit". One said "the HM said you seem really bright and would hire asap if we were looking for a generalist". Another said "this isn't about weakness or lack of experience, just questions on fit". Do recruiters say this to a lot of people or is this genuine? Trying to gauge whether my interview performance is at least solid.
Interviewing for a role at BP, what are they like as a firm to work at? It’d be the commercial/strategy side of the business rather than production. I understand they went thru a major re-org to be relevant for the future energy industry. How’s that going?
Started about 8 months ago from another firm but already interviewing for industry roles. Is it worth sticking it out for a few more months? For more context, I have about 5 years exp, all consulting
Any organization does consulting interview prep, esp. case interview prep? Trying to switch job into better consulting firms. Never done case interview before, so need some guidance. Thanks!
Hi. I’m an incoming masters in business analytics student at MIT and am looking for summer 2022 internships as an analyst in a tech company. I have worked as an engineering analyst for about a year. Any suggestions on how to prepare for interviews are welcome and maybe we could also do a coffee chat.Thank you
Interviewing with PWC digital risk solutions group - any pointers on what I can expect or any knowledge from people who are familiar with the DRS group. Input on company culture would also be great.
Fortune 5 company asking for a quick case analysis and a single slide summary (90 min of effort) as first part of the interview even before recruiter screen. WWYD?
How long have you all been interviewing for?
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!
What to expect at a lateral interview with partners? First one ever and am at the partner interview stage
Any advice on a Bain full time first round interview? I go to a non-target school, and am an engineering major. I’ve tried applying to consulting internships since sophomore year and have never received any interviews from anywhere. I’ve been casing all summer with friends and am super nervous before the interview. Would appreciate anything that could help me stand out or anything to avoid that would get me rejected. I know Bain heavily focuses on the case and not as much the behavioral.
Late startup (700 people) told me 4 interviews (behavioral, case, 2x culture), then added 2 more interviews, and now is asking for a 7th. Wtf.
30 min phone interview with SM at Acn Strat tomorrow: other than resume walkthrough, why leave, why Acn Strat, and typical tell me about a time question — any other major things I should plan for?
Hearing back from Deloitte and PwC Canada with interviews after we’ve made the decision to relocate the US. Should I accept the interviews, I’m very conflicted now.
Haven’t been getting any interview leads for months. Finally got one that would have been a good fit - thought I did really well for both rounds and just got the rejection email. Feeling defeated. Any advice / words of encouragement?
Can any recent EY joiners provide their experiences on how long it took to hear back after each round. I did the virtual screen and had two interviews back-to-back with SMs.
Interviewing for jobs right now and all of these places have interview processes with 4-5 rounds. When did this become the norm? I am exhausted and all of my “doctors appointments” are starting to look suspicious.
Seeing industry roles that are pretty cool but require minimum 3 years of experience. I have nearing 6 YOE - is it a waste of time for me to apply to these roles? My only concern is comp range
Can anyone summarize PwC travel expense policy? Considering making the switch and curious how it compares to EY. (Not curious enough to ask through official channels 💁🏼♂️)

What platforms have you started using during COVID that you didn't before. Helped at all?

Has anyone left PA and gone into accounting in the Cannabis industry? Or a firm with cannabis clients? How is the culture and clients?
BCG Fish. What is the main difference between coming in as a Project Lead and a Principal?
What are the potential benefits of working at a deals oriented firm (e.g., LEK, S& Deals, EY-P) as compared to the more traditional Big 4 MC type roles at the post-M level? Really struggling with putting in the hours for the deals centric role as I’m not 100% sure of the longer term payoff (besides short term slight bump in comp).
Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.
Have first rounds with McK and BCG in two weeks (undergrad) and am liberal arts major. I’m nervous about math portion of case interviews - any resources for practice case math outside of rocket blocks? Or general advice?
For those who survived layoffs and crises before, what things and actions made a difference? How'd you come out stronger? Did you pivot into something new entirely?
Production, lighting experts or just anyone who’s figured it out. Tips & tricks for home office lighting (for my face) for video calls? Depending on time of day, my face is either over exposed super glaring white or dark shadows look like a hostage in a closet. I have two big screens in front on my and I think computer glare makes it worse. Advice welcome!
I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬
Anyone else currently dealing with the fact that their job/project is exacerbating the deterioration of their mental health?
Any copywriters here who have published novels? I'm set to finish my 4th rewrite by end of year and hopefully shop it around soon. If I manage to get it published, you think I could translate it into a raise somehow? Also, would love any general advice -- on querying, on finding beta readers, or craft books you'd recommend. Save the Cat is my plotting bible, and I also love Self-Editing for Fiction Writers. Any other recs?
I'm sick of these politicians and their empty campaign promises. I want my Badacaf-care now!
