Dear Partner, if you’d actually read the email you just responded to, you’d see that the answer to your question is already there… in bold and underlined. 🤦♂️
I like the job/ people/ company I’m with, but I ended up taking an interview and getting an offer for 40% salary increase, similar role. I would truly only be leaving for the money. We’re not struggling but this would make a big difference over a few years. Yes I plan to ask current employer to see what they can do but they won’t be able to come close… is only for the money the wrong reason to leave?
Hey all. Seeing a lot of posts here of people sharing their "books". As a marketing strategist looking for a new opportunity, what is essential to include in a book? My work isn't exactly flashy like a designer's might be. Should I put some of my case studies together? Do you all host your books online? Any tool recommendations for creating these?
Partners can’t handle the truth! We live in a world that has tough programs, and those programs have to be run by men/women with brains. Who's gonna do it? You? You, A partner?

Do I have chance of moving forward?

Hello - I'm an experienced hire coming from a totally different industry than consulting. Hoping to gain insights on the hiring process timelines for some consulting firms. I applied to BCG and McKinsey through referrals a month ago. Applications are still open, did Pymetrics games for BCG but haven't heard back from either, otherwise... No news is rarely good news...
I got a warning email about AmEx personal use mis-use. They were honest mistakes that I made while on my first trip. Should I write back and admit that or ignore since it is a semi-generic email? Cont
So apparently EY believes that moving to unlimited PTO will provide a first mover/differentiator advantage amongst the big 4.. I’d advise Deloitte, PWC, and KPMG folks to let EY stand alone on this one! None of us asked for this and they are doing it primarily to reduce PTO accrual liability for layoffs/in states where employers are limited in taking away earned PTO
I got laid off with no warning. Reason given was my utilization was low at 81.8%. No performance problems. Would it be inappropriate for me to apply back to PwC to the teams I discussed rolling onto?
Curious what type of strategy projects others find interesting, and how often they get such projects (esp. at other B4 strategy/MBB):

Here’s an idea for all firms posturing about diversity: may pay numbers transparent with demographic data included. So white male Managers at PwC make $xx, white women make $yy, black women make $zz. Pay bands don’t solve the problem since inequality in promotions and development opportunities persist.
Sure. I’m an MD at Alix - I don’t have an MBA, I do a lot of hiring/recruiting work, and MBA only matters to me if a candidate doesn’t have much consulting/business experience.
I got into Deloitte without an undergrad degree. Depending on the type of role and YOE, it’s definitely possible.
Of course. I went to DePaul University for two years and didn’t do well academically, so I began working. After various retail and office staff jobs, I landed a job in the subscriber call center at Experian, worked in a few roles there, then was laid off after 9/11. Then I went to work for HSBC and led the implementation of a campaign management platform. After 6.5 years, I was ready for a change and went to Wunderman for 9 years where I had several roles and ended up managing a Marketing Operations Team. My manager at Wunderman left and went to Accenture, and encouraged me to try consulting.
I was going to be attending Adobe Summit back in 2017, and tried to RSVP to the Deloitte Digital party. It was limited to firm employees and clients, but the Global Head of the Adobe Practice emailed me and asked me if I was open to new opportunities. I was, and replied as such, and had my first interview in the Deliotte Digital booth at the conference. Then I went through in-person interviews, and was offered a role as an experienced hire.
I ended up exiting consulting in December to lead a Global CRM Team at a crypto startup.
Pretty much every firm takes in non-MBAs if you are in Europe. Particular DACH, Benelux, Nordics.
We do, all the time.
Bain does yes (easier if you have a different advanced degree)
What firms are you interested in aiming for? Lots of top firms take in non-MBAs, but typically there will be some other advanced degree.
Definitely possible, just not a common path. If you’re open to 1 year degrees, the 1 year Kellogg MBA is a recruiting source (but recognize it’s an MBA so may not be a fit)
Yes we do (I did it)
Yes but you’ll get knocked back on tenure likely
We definitely do.
