This is helpful! Thanks mr. consultant!

As long as you aren’t dead set on a PE/VC exit, it’s not that different as it is mostly driven by your network, experience, fit, etc.

Yes

Yes these days FAANG job descriptions (mid level and up) literally write out they’re only considering candidates from MBB and one or two other top strategy firms. So my guess is it’s not impossible to get those gigs but a lot harder to get into the door.

Could be talking about EYP, strategy&, etc.

No but the odds of getting the job are. I think anyone from consulting can end up at any company with the right circumstances. It's just a question of whether or not you have the experience, network, storytelling ability,etc. to convince them to hire you. More likely that someone from MBB will than someone from EY but it's not impossible

C2, definitely agree with your latest post 100%

I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩

Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!

After my first year I got a 20% raise following a brief and exclusively positive performance review. Its been about 17 months since then and silence. I have the general sense that the firm struggled a little financially during COVID and I don't want to seem ungrateful or greedy, but apparently the firm is doing well enough to hire more associates.
