Anyone in the Big 4 corporate finance / investment banking groups willing to DM. I have several questions about the position. TIA
Long run what pays more MBB or FAANG ?
Have 2.5 YOE and consultant at Deloitte. Huron consulting reached out to interview me for a Consulting Analyst position bc apparently analyst is (0-5 years) and associate is 5+. Does this make sense/sound right ? What’s the expected salary at an analyst level?
Getting ready for PMP exam. Any tips for last minute prep or for the actual exam? Already took course, books and doing flash cards.
Does anyone know the difference between an LO (leadership opportunity)￼ position versus an IC (individual contributor) ￼position at Facebook. ￼ more specifically in terms of￼compensation. ￼
FAANG folks - what are Facebook/Google roles like Country Lead/Industry Lead equivalent to? Are these Director level roles? What sort of compensation can you expect in something like that role?
Has anyone gotten a Scrummaster certification? Surprisingly difficult to find info on the process online. What is involved/required?
Does anybody have a connection for Verizon? Applied for a position I’m greatly interested in and would love a referral or connection
Any thoughts on the MBA program at Boston University? Is Boston University MBA good enough for positions at FAANG or MBB? And what about the MBA program at MIT?
How easy is it to change industries? I've been in oil & gas for 3 years but I don't want my exit opportunities to be limited to that industry only as I don't particularly enjoy it.
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than MBB?
Is there some comprehensive doc that maps MBB consulting levels to typical FAANG exits, types of groups etc? Or is this tribal knowledge?
Hello! I recently applied for a position at KPMG, no referral. Would you fishies kindly share the application review process, how long it might take for them to get back to you, if they get back to you? I know some experiences may differ, please feel free to share your experience, too! If it helps, it's in advisory and technology enablement. Thanks! 🙃
Hi Fishes, I have an interview scheduled with Infosys this weekend for Pega technology (Pega Developer role). Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
Serious q: I'm choosing between a two BI/Ops type roles, one in a FAANG in Dublin, one in a less-known corporate in London (where I'm currently based). FAANG pays 70% more and is a more interesting / more senior role, but I'd prefer staying in London where all my friends are / where it's warmer and sunnier. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna take the FAANG role, but has anyone else struggled with this type of career vs. personal life trade-off, and how did you reason about it?
Has anyone ever exited Technology/Digital type consulting roles into something more business / commercially oriented? If so, how did you go about it and what sort of roles were open to you? I fell into Tech and it has never really been of huge interest to me. My background is 10 years experience at IBM > EY-Parthenon > AlixPartners with an MBA in between.
Things to do before putting in notice? So far I have: spend fitness subsidy, transfer Amex points, spend tech subsidy. What else?
Where do B4 people live in NYC? Moving there next month as senior associate in advisory and looking for ideas
I want to start taking the hijab - going back to work after a break and am client facing. Should I inform my partner beforehand? Anyone who has done that before?
Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
Do experience hires come into EY-P as Consultants? Or Senior Associates? Or is SA only for MBA? What is the bay bands for Consultants?
When does the CSP 80k SOB promotion end?
4 weeks on the bench. Reached out to 15+ MDs and SMs to help with proposals and/or staffing opps. Radio silence. Guess no one needs help then.
What advice would you give to someone jumping firms at associate level to senior associate at new firm? Friend applied as EA and was interviewed as SA but does not feel qualified. Thanks
I think I asked for too low of a salary during initial interviews elsewhere. The recruiter never told me the band either. About to go into second round. Is there still a chance to ask for more?
Considering pursuing FRM certification. Currently in FS and don’t have a background in business/finance (studied Econ). Would FRM help bridge the subject matter knowledge gap?
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
Looking to get into healthcare somewhere in the big 4! Someone point me in the right direction! No real preference what firm as long as the healthcare team is strong...any advice?
I submitted my application to Tuck at 1am ET on 9/2.. do you think I’ll still be eligible for the guaranteed interview they offer if you apply by 9/1? Should I ask the adcom?
Longest amount of time you've been on the bench?
That moment when you had all your projects out the door, ready to pack for your vacation and chill, but your client comes back with "urgent" changes. #fml #almostthere
