Exiting to Tech in a sales / consulting services role. Clearing $400K inclusive of RSUs. Really felt like I was not given the opportunities on high visibility accounts at my firm and somehow my client / sales / firm impacts were overlooked. Always felt like I was swimming upstream and my comp was basically flat over the last 3 years. So I bid adieu to consulting - for now.
Converted my summer at a low/mid BB in the ECM team, however now been offered an analyst role at a MM PE firm (~$1bn AUM). Although my team at the BB is far from prestigious I’m just looking to hear some other opinions before I accept the PE offer, one thing catching me off guard is that most of the IP come from non-MBB consulting backgrounds so I’m wondering if this is really a good exit. I’d be taking about a 10% pay cut compared to IB but progression to roles with carry is open.

Has anyone here used a service to help you find a new job? I’m looking at one where they source and apply for jobs for me. They’ll also help me rework my resume, LinkedIn, and other materials, as well as interview coaching. I’ve been looking for a new position on my own with no luck for the past 6 months. The downside of this service is they charge a commission based on the salary for the job they place you in. Thoughts or advice?

Was hired into a company at a level that was more junior than my skills (Was out of work due to pandemic for a year). I’ve been at the company 5 months. We’re going through a reorg and my new position will really be leveraging my years of experience more so than other role. Is it appropriate to discuss a raise/adding senior to title? Or should I do the job and then prove myself then talk about raise. I have more experience than the senior members of my team. New leadership than when I was hired

Recently transferred internally (tech industry) to a new role in the analytics team to focus >90% on analysis due to previous role being 50% ops. Now in my new role, the person who was responsible for ops just left and now I have both roles under my scope. How soon can I start looking for exit ops? Assuming I’ve been at the company for 4 years and new team just 2 months. Transfer process took previous team going to bat for me, leadership approval, etc. Looking to avoid burning bridges.
Mamas - what are the most creative solutions to schooling you have seen for next year as alternatives? Is there something your school districts are doing that you think is creative and unique? Are you hiring teachers and creating pods? Renting space? I have twins entering kindergarten. I trying to find them a bridge program to act as a kindergarten but also exploring other options. I do know that a virtual environment while I work 50-60 hour weeks is not the best solution!

Could anyone please tell me about the recruitment process for BCGDV (BCG Digital Ventures) ? I passed the 1st round and have a 2nd round with a Lead but unsure if there is a case study. Asked my HR coordinator who said it will be 45mins on past experience and competencies but no need to prepare. Still not sure about case studies and if yes, what type? Thank you

I've never heard about internships or projects on consultancy, management services offered by any company in India..! Can someone let me know if any company is currently providing Internship oppurtunities and also some skills(particular courses) that an consultant or product manager should develop despite of soft skills. I'm a pre graduate student who wants to build career in consultancy and management firms rather than tech side(coding n stuff) from IIT Kharagpur
Someone explain to me how this works: if I have really good snapshots with performance differentiators for almost every snapshot I have, but my utilization is below the goal for my level. I’m asking..
