What’s the difference in the types of exit opps between MBB and B4 consultants? Is the gap really as big as people make it or does it mainly come down to networking, relevant skills, and luck?
Hey Salesforce 🐠. I had a first round interview (hiring manager) ten business days ago and haven't heard a peep since. My workday still says "Interviewing". Is that normal? Does it ever change to something like "pass"? Should I just move on? 🥺

Hi Fishes! I’m a newly promoted S1 in tax at a Top 10. I’m trying to join the Big 4 post 10/15 (preferably KPMG) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to make it in?

Thanks
What are the most lucrative exit opps for a generalist/strategy consultant at big 4 public sector consulting with security clearance? I’ve heard positive things about Google and Amazon/AWS and about some of the big defense firms (Lockheed). Is it actually possible to boost comp by 50% or so on exit from big 4 in this space?
My partner (along with his team) has been laid off from an equity research role. He is on H1b visa and has until end of February to find a new job otherwise he’ll have to leave the country. I would be very grateful if someone knows of any sell-/buyside investment analyst opportunities and can refer, please. Years of experience: 9yrs. Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
Considering an expert role in healthcare in mid Atlantic region at McKinsey. Any thoughts about culture, wlb, tc, etc? Have read through a bunch of older threads. Opinion seems mixed. Negatives mentioned include more intense work hours than integrative track, second class citizen, slower career progression, lower pay than integrative, harder to get staffed on engagements, poor integration into teams, and subpar exit opportunities. Also read this is changing. Would appreciate recent thoughts. 🙏
I created a LoFi playlist on YouTube for consultants like us to vibe and work on (“Pls Fix Playlists”) It’s made me at least 2x more productive in editing my resume while searching for exit opps - so hope it does the same for ya’ll! Let me know what ya’ll fishes think: https://youtu.be/_PWxgWMtP5I
Anyone know anything about the new Organic office opening up in LA? Work/culture/hours/people?
You started at a new role/company 2 months ago that is +50% your previous TC, a level promotion, and you’re happy with the team and scope. However you’re also currently in a long distance relationship with a SO you love and have been with for 4 years. The relationship is starting to crack and moving abroad to be with her seems like the best decision to kee the relationship. How would you play this out sirs/maams? Ask manager to work abroad and quit if they reject it? Thx for the feedback 😔
I’m a jr M&A associate with a second round interview at Arnold and Porter. Any insight (the practice, environment, etc) firm wide and specifically NY office would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What are some exit opps outside of life sciences? And any prerequisites needed to make the switch?
I have a final round interview for a non-investment role at a hedge fund in the NYC area. I was told I would be discussing comp with the founder of the fund. What kind of compensation can I expect going into the conversation? The firm has about 35 employees and $15bn AUM. Role is business development/client service associate and this would be my first full time role. I just want to have a general idea of what comp could/should be so I feel prepared to discuss

My partner is looking into going back to school for a masters in sustainability management. He is looking at a program through the Harvard Extension School Sustainability Management certificate.

Slalom consulting in San Fran. Thoughts?
I'm a Senior Account Executive, but my tasks lately make me feel like I've taken on a smaller role. At any of your agencies what are your SAEs responsible for? I want to make sure I'm progressing in my career.
Should I make the move from ATL to NYC? 24 and I’ve always had a dream of living there in my 20s. I’m analyst with 1 YOE and think I could get support for the transfer itself. My hesitation stems from HCOL… I don’t have any debt and have a substantial cushion in savings (lived at home the past year) but the idea of spending ~2k rent is intimidating. I will spend ~$1.2k in atl for rent. My income in MCOL is $65k. Should I bite the bullet or wait 1-2yrs for a salary increase before going to HCOL?
Any advice (besides good GMAT) on how to get into a top MBA post consulting? Im a public sector consultant.
Do you think WFH will end in every country once vaccines are available to everyone? What if you don't get the vaccine?
Exploring a potential data analytics role at MBB that isn’t part of their general consulting track… it seems more like an internal service that partners with consulting teams and occasionally is client facing. I’m interested in pursuing an MBA in the near-ish future and I’m curious how much this would help my application versus staying in my current role as a B4 consultant?
Just got promoted! What salary can we expect as new Manager 1’s? High cost of living area - Advisory PI

Those that have been laid off recently are you speaking to an employment lawyer at all? What are the reasons to / not to?
Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
Should I feel bad about spending ~1k in food this month? I've been all alone this holiday season so food is my only comfort...
Have any of you been rejected after getting picked in the H1B lottery (and after being on RFE status) ? I just got a notification saying my H1B petition has been denied.
Hear me out. We’re living in the residual days of advertising power. Back in the day, if you worked in advertising, you very much shaped culture. Advertising creatives shared the airwaves with only the likes of Hollywood and national news. There were only so many pipes into culture and advertising was a big one. But today, the pipes are democratized. Random teens on TikTok are having more impact on culture than Mad Ave. And yet, so much ego and self importance remains.

I have been working in HR since 2004. I have a bachelor's degree but it is not in HR, it's in a medical/technical field. My entire career in HR has been on the job training and I have worked besides people with HR degrees doing the same things they do. What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?
