IBD to Strategic Finance in a tech firm; any possible plays? Any insight in to VCs vs PEs (in tech) and/or should I just sit tight till exit?
Another win for diversity!
If a person has 10 years of programming and want to apply for an SDE 2 position in Amazon, does the interview questions complexity increases in comparison to a 5 year experience person
Are MBB/consulting experience + technical masters (e.g., data science, CS) ever complementary when looking at exit opps, or are they too different to overlap (or, in other words, will the former have been a waste of time if pursuing the latter)?
Got interviewed in top companies through third party recruiters and now waiting for final decision & offer from all 3. But my goal is to get full time role which is hard due to my OPT status. Advice?
I'm in the job market and was wondering anybody ever hold a contract manager position? They seem well paid and legal adjacent some require lawyers. If so how did you pitch yourself?
Hello EY 🐠! Anyone kind enough to share what kind of questions you were asked by the interviewer when at interview? Specially for core tax, manager position. Wonder if it’s gonna be behavior question, technical, or mostly casual talk, etc? TIA.
I currently work as a personal injury lawyer at a small law firm, 5 years experience, graduated from T30 law school in 2015. Our subject area is pretty niche, and I am looking to branch out. Not big law, but a different subject area, and hopefully something with a better work life balance (have a small child with hopes for more). Open to leaving the law for a compliance/HR/other type position. Am I even marketable for something like that? Am I being unrealistic?
I have worked in the HR space for the past 9 years, however most of my experience has been in Talent Acquisition. I do want to move into a People Operations/Generalist role. I’m planning to go for a HR certificate but unsure if I should go for a PHR or SHRM. Please advise!
I’m looking for a referral to a Certified Financial Planner. I want someone to help me paint my full financial picture, and start to lay out what the next 30 years look like wrt kids college, FIRE, Etc…. Thanks y’all.
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done
Advice on dealing with clients who want to do diversity-centered messaging without donating to any causes or benefitting BIPOC in a tangible way?
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
Just got another rejection... Is exiting to FAANG or MB really this hard? Trying to go tech.. or mbb, but not getting anywhere. I have 2 masters (mba, ms) from top schools, been in consulting for over 10 years, I am confident that I know my stuff well..but still I keep getting rejected. Interviewed with Google, Amazon, Cisco, McKinsey, and a few others and every-time there is something that is not a match... are the hiring managers looking for like 100% match? That will never happen!!!
I currently work as an APM at a FAANG company but recently received an offer to join an MBB. I’m very excited about the role but didn’t realize I’d need to take a pay cut when I applied (~100k base + ~20k bonus + ~60k equity vs. 90k base + 10-20k bonus). Considering that I currently work 40-60 hours/week, I’ll be making significantly less per hour at the MBB. I’m very interested in the opportunity but also don’t want to make a poor financial decision early in my career. Thank you for your time!
Anyone in the Big 4 corporate finance / investment banking groups willing to DM. I have several questions about the position. TIA

What kind of signing bonuses are the big 4 offering for new FDD joiners? I heard 15k at the senior level
To be a fly on the wall in that client meeting. 360i: Okay, so... before you say no, hear me out... Japanese rockabillies. That’s it. That’s the idea. 7/11: Why? 360i: Maybe you didn’t hear me: JAPANESE ROCKABILLIES. 7/11: I see your point. Sold. I love this spot. https://youtu.be/hBCf83SA9j4
Is it worth throwing my hat in the ring to be an ABM with 1.5 year agency experience and no MBA? Really want to try something new while I’m moldable, and be compensated properly for my drive and abilities.
Bain AC1 & AC2 total comp figures? Wondering if the lateral is worth it with 3 YOE at ACN Strat.
Anyone heard of lab49? Any impressions or insights? Trust this community... interviewing there tomorrow.
How many people here want access to mental health resources but don't? If so, what's stopping you from access mental health resources? Professional help availability, money, time, stigma? Have an interesting business idea but looking to validate it, thanks!
Hey y'all! I just accepted an offer with Microsoft in the FRP. Does anyone have any recommendations for progressing within the company and making the most of the opportunity? I've heard a lot of stories of how crazy the salary can get so I'm definitely interested in hearing about various experiences! Potentially pivoting into consulting/product management. I'm honestly very open to multiple pathways and at this moment aiming for promotion and exposure asap!
Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
I'm about to interview for a VP position at a startup but have never managed before. Is it smart, as a Black woman, to ask directly about support for mangers (ie supporting me is one of my reports didn't want to listen to me, etc)? Or maybe I can ask but very vaguely and indirectly? This is a 2nd (3rd, 4th & 5th over the course of the next 2 days) interview that includes the founders of the company.
TLDR: First time H1B RFE =purely a wait game? got RFE last Monday, wrote to lawyer last and this Monday but haven’t heard back. Should I just sit and wait? How long does it typically take for people to hear back RFE results? I have friends who waited for 4+ months last year but also saw cases of a few weeks in this bowl. Confused and lost.
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Anyone work for Jabian? Thoughts on the company as a whole? Also what is the salary range for an experienced consultant?
Can anyone tell me the ballpark comp for Y1 Partners in the UK? Thinking of a long term move where this might become a relevant consideration. I understand comp is generally lower, but same for P?
What would you all say is the sweet spot at which to exit consulting? Is it at the manager level?
Ha, in reference to the earlier post.
Folks who have been naturalized -- is it really necessary to bring printed copies of tax returns or evidence of your international trips to the interview? I've read about people bring several years worth of tax returns but nowhere does it say on USCIS.
My husband and I were watching the LuLaRich documentary and he pointed out the the big 4 firms are very similar to MLM pyramid schemes. 😆🤔🧐
