They are a “Power 3”. Take it and you write your own ticket for the rest of your career.

So Bain reduced its African footprint considerably last year. They lost a tonne of their black delegates as a result. A recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn and said they're trying to build their "international talent" which translates to me as black talent

Black women treated the same from one plantation to the next - what’s in it for you? Better pay or perhaps better projects? If these aren’t important then hopefully you’ll have mastered by now how to navigate Corporate America. Only that skillset will save your dignity wherever you land.

Seeing what just came out from PwC, I'll say some firms seem worst than others... So sadly it's more of a should I run, or can I just do my thing heads down. I'm definitely in the mode of getting what I can out of the situation, not trying to go in giving 110% with some hope of making partner. I actually feel that my last firm (mod-size, specialized) treated me quite well. But I didn't want to be in consulting anymore. So with no one here really jumping in and saying Bain is a great opportunity, I'm gonna pass.

I am currently in industry, but was a Senior in Accounting Advisory, and before that an audit associate.

I know they are on a hiring spree so would coming in as a Manager be possible? I’ve previously been on M&A audit/AAS engagements.
