A few years ago it was known for lower comp but international travel - had a friend making much less but working out of South Africa, vacationing on points in Brazil.

I think of them like a boutique version of mercer or AON. I've met some really sharp people there over the years. Most often they seem to be on these 1 person engagements where they fill a senior Exec role for the customer

Within FS, there's a fair amount of risk work - often relating to risk models. Then there are practices specific to retail banking, corporate/ institutional banking and insurance, which do a mix of strategy and ops in those areas. Very good people, lots of opportunity to grow fast if you seize it. I think comp is pretty competitive these days but it frankly depends how well your skill set translates, as levels don't always work out like for like.

For people who are familiar with work culture in Tokyo, how much embezzlement takes place? I see a good number of Japanese people on Instagram buying Bentleys and such. I'm confused how they can do so while living in a high COL with, on average, lower salaries than in the US. With the scandal at Nissan and how many executives were found to be stealing money from the company, I wonder if this is some unspoken secret about doing business in Tokyo? Unless their comp curve is extremely steep.

Question for you all: Left D to Company A for a 50% raise in TC and slated to start in <1 week. However, just got an offer at Company B for a 100% raise in TC compared to D, or 30% raise in TC compared to company A. Both firms do similar work but B provides a more solid comp package. Job duties would be relatively similar. Is the % jump worth burning the bridge? Would have chosen Company B if the offer came sooner but the % difference in A to B is at my [personal] 30% threshold. TIA!

For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
