Does it come off as arrogant when a candidate is transparent about their interviewing timeline with other agencies?
Quick scenario: If I have a consulting offer from a different Big 4 that has a start date post-10/15, so that in theory I would not have to submit a 2 weeks notice until post-10/1 (bonus payout date) but I sign the offer pre-9/30, am I obligated (looking for both legal & professional standpoint) to tell PwC because it is with a competitor? This is essentially the exact same group at the other big 4
Moving from valuation to FDD. Yay or nay?
I have an offer from Goldman Sachs as a VP - Compliance in ATL for $164k base and I should expect an annual bonus of 10-20-%. Is this a fair offer? Any room to negotiate up on base?
Any insight to what bonuses look like at USDC? Curious to know what to potentially anticipate. A couple friends in core GPS last year claimed receiving as little as $200-500 for bonus...
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
Asking for my brother: he just graduated with a bachelors in sustainability. What kind of jobs in sustainability consulting are good entry points for fresh college grads? Any specific companies to go for?
I switched from audit to consulting, and I thought I’d enjoy my job since I’m no longer ticking the box.. doing something that’s more challenging (what people said lol) .. helping the client etc etc but honestly the job seems pretty much the same. I still work on meaningless BS stuff. Is it because I’m not in ‘real’ (strategy) consulting? I do process improvement / CFO advisory. Or are all corporate jobs pretty much the same other than the pay / wlb (which is def. better)
How to break into PE deal team (Credit or LBO)? I’m currently working at a $40+ bn PE but in the performance group. My day to day is mostly monitoring investments directly with deal team MDs and also preparing fundraising materials. I know how to do company valuations (DCF, comps, etc.) always been passionate about investing so that would be my ideal move. Current comp is $120k+. Willing to do an MBA.
Thank you, covid-19.
Looking for new HR opportunities, either remote (ideally east coast time) or in NC. Please reach out if you know of places hiring or can refer! Have been applying and interviewing, but nothing concrete yet. Would love some help!
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
Had a dream where a VP at the client knocked on my apartment door asking for an eta on an analysis he requested that is not due until next week... I need a vacation.
Thoughts on how much in surcharges before an award is no longer worth it? Eying an AirFrance nonstop (CDG IAD) in biz that’s 55K miles (from AmEx) but balking a bit at additional taxes/fees of $350
