I don’t know much. Recently connected with some in GT Advisory. Apparently this is their consulting group as opposed to Big Advisory ( which is more Risk related then Strategy/ Management Consulting). So basically in GT you would get Management/Strategy projects. Plus the culture is more welcoming/laidback. But not sure. Just wanted to add my two cents.

Are companies looking to hire more minorities and people who identify as LGBTQ+? I saw a post about a job listing for a Big 4 and it said it had a strong preference for people who identify as LGBTQ+ or a minority racial group. Does this mean they have a higher chance of getting the job? Not trying to start any political debates, I’m just generally curious.
