Fishes, I’m one step closer to securing an exit and would like to thank you all for the support.

Now, I need advice on negotiating an offer from Google StratOps, and have a couple of questions where some views (esp. from ex-MBB) would be useful:

1. What’s the typical TC bump MBB consultants are able to get when moving to FAANG StratOps / BizOps roles?

2. Does the base comp increase, remain constant, or decrease?

TIA, as always!

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies. I now decided to take 6-8 months and seriously prepare for cases/mental math and try them again next year. I currently have Victor Chengs book and few others. What else would you recommend for me? How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?

So for any of you panicky paper-hands who need to get talked down from selling.

This is what playing dirty looks like - welcome to the real Wall Street. They want to send a message to scare off enough people by mimicking a crash through intentional sales that trigger freezes. This is the endgame, because they know that if retailers don't blink they have to take the bath of all baths tomorrow.

Log out, get some fresh air, come back later. Lots of good DD on wsb and discord. HOLD is FUN!
