It’s not a step down. It’s a reputable firm. Is it actually a title bump? Not all firms map title to title. Anyways, a bump in comp is what matters.

It's a title bump and pay bump, and I already expect D to disappoint in comp given last year's build up to let down..

DM me if you want to chat. Company is too small to post publicly.

Depending on the practices- some are pretty solid (Corporate Finance) others are just starting, which means you get to be a part of go to market strategy and helping build the practice ground up. Overall it has pretty solid pipeline and opportunity to grow.

Similar question. SD 1 & 2: Do you have any insights about the BT group?

Thoughts on GLG? Offer in business development team. GLG not finance but need reach!! Got 24 hours to respond.

I’ve never done sales before either and the job involves prospect and account mapping. I was offered the job due to my transferable skills. I will be in a small team of 4 but my role is the only business development position.

I see a role within a team that I’m interested in but the experience level is low under the minimum qualifications section, which leads me to believe I may be too senior for this particular role (L4).

I have about 10 years of work experience in my industry, 7-8 of those years in my field. What level should I aim for?

Does anyone know acceptance rates at big 4 type firms versus boutiques? Most assume big 4 are harder to get into and more prestigious than boutiques or lower level firms.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this and any data you have. Sometimes I wonder why big 4 is so highly revered when work products I review are less than stellar.
