I was in IB/Equities before this consulting gig and people there talk about making $10k/day or $17 million the year before. No matter how rampant the douchebaggery was, they had real money to show for. When I hear these kind of stuff in our industry, I'm like bitch please, y'all get paid the same amount regardless working 40 or 80. It's like they're in a dick measuring contest, albeit long and thick nobody can even get them hard enough to actually fuck.

There's a point at which performance gets worse and you look like a loser, even to your bosses. Not to mention the health effects from overwork, and the fact that beyond a certain point, your bonus won't be bigger anyway.

What is it like working at Monitor Deloitte with the Strategic Growth Transformation team (under S&A)? I have 4 YOE from a Big 4 and got an offer for Senior C in NY.
1- What is the culture like: How are the people? Hours? Are you happy working there?
2- Is there actual strategy work or is it mostly transformation, with the word "strategy" being slapped to every single project? How long are the projects? Are most project sponsors actually at the Csuite level?
3- Is Monitor thriving or dying?

Hello!
I was wondering what kind of contractual or other barriers I might face if I apply for one of the big 4 while working on a project with them in my current company.
I am not too involved in the project but I was in a few meetings and went on a field trip with them as well.
The position that I am applying for is in a different team and city.
Will this considered “poaching” if the consulting firm hires me? Would they need to talk to my current employer?
