I’m trying to transition to finance and have a potential pricing analyst position at a top well known company. Would this be a good opportunity to take as I am trying to get into a fp&a role?
Has anyone pivoted from consulting to IB or vice versa? How quickly were you able to pick up the skills for the other role’s interview process / career?
Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾
What’s a realistic time frame for after you start the job hunt (e.g., applications/interviews) to the next company, and until you’re actually starting your new job? 2-3 months?
Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.
How do I show genuine interest/passion for a position I applied for when I don’t have any experience in that area (FDD)? I didn’t get an offer from the last position I applied for because another candidate had more “passion” for the job. TIA
Who would love to be my Kraft-Hienz referral? 😃
If I have not gotten an interview from a school at this point for Round 2 (Stanford, Haas) is that a definite indicator of a rejection or waitlist? Nobody gets in without an interview, right?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Anyone interviewed for the Implementation service line at McKinsey & Company? Curious to learn more about the business as well as how the interview looked like. Appreciate sharing your thoughts on this. Thank you!
Are beards appropriate in big law in the US while interviewing and/or working as an associate? Could it just depend on the person interviewing you? From what I’ve seen in Europe, they’re tolerated even in old school environments. Thank you!
Best ways to live and work (in consulting) internationally? Firm has a global deployment program but many just quit the US firm after applying / getting hired to another country's member firm.
I’m looking for a new role in NYC. I have a feeling more layoffs are imminent at my current agency. Ideally, the role would be client facing, incorporate content creation, pay at least $90K and be located within an office known for its company culture. Reply if you have any leads. Thanks!
Anyone exited to AbbVie? Saw a position of interest but curious about culture and WLB, and how much a referral helps vs. cold applying.
Hey all - considering applying to two roles. One is with UnitedHealth and another one says Optum advisory. Does anyone have insights into work culture and pros/cons of one organization vs the other? How easy is it to move within UHG?
Currently in core audit after 2 years and have my CPA. Looking for other jobs and wondering what potential exit ops there are? Have been looking for FPA roles but a lot require specific finance experience. Also, what kind of salary could I expect if I jump to roles like senior accountants?
Deloitte 🐠—I saw from my feed that they’re letting go of people recently b/c they have too many now. Should I still apply? Was planning on applying to S&O and would be going from a boutique firm. TIA!
What is working at Citadel like? Talking to a recruiter for an ops role, but she mentioned that the ex-MBB team works as hard as they did in consulting (if not harder). Also see online the Citadel is called “Chicago’s revolving door”? A bad exit for someone wanting a bit more sustainability?
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
Asking this fine group of professionals for recommendations for US based pr firms (on the smaller side due to budget limitations) that have a specialty on B2B/marketing/client services. Thanks in advance.
First world problems, but damn, what status do I need to be assured a king size bed at Marriott? Apparently gold isn't enough...
Do Deloitte's case interviews involve math?
Are interviews with a hiring manager generally the final round? Have the hiring manager interview soon but it’ll only be the second time speaking to someone at the company. It is a very small ~5 person group though.
Do you leave current position without being promoted to senior? Some opportunities come up but I am hesitating whether or not to wait until I got promoted.
We're returning to the classroom! I haven't taught live, in a classroom, since Friday, March 13, 2020. Ack! This is also my first full year as a teacher. I have four of my students and 3 students from the younger class coming to my hybrid class for three hours M, T, Th, F, starting this Thursday. Any ideas? Tips? Rules? I have lots of ideas, but figured I should pick the experts' brains, rather than freaking out and spinning my wheels. I'm feeling very high anxiety today. Thanks!
Just went from 5th to 2nd and would love to know classroom management ideas. Anything to stay away from? Thanks!
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
How long did it take to hear back about an offer from Guidehouse, after the final round interview? It’s been a week for me, still haven’t heard anything
BCG fish - what is a product manager - pricing role. Got reached out to about an opportunity, but it’s a little unclear what the role entails and what part of the firm it falls under / Reputation
I know my boss is interviewing. And I'm not surprised that nobody will hire him. But, I sure wish someone would!
Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.
Recommendations for travel destinations in the US at the end of October / early November? I have a few weeks between jobs, concerned about getting Covid in another country and not being able to come back on time. I don’t want to do hiking or national parks as I’m a young woman traveling alone and don’t think I would enjoy lots of hiking by myself. Am vaccinated
If you’re in LCOL or MCOL, is your firm losing people to California firms offering remote work and California wages? I know some have left for Seiler; Citrin Cooperman; CohnReznick; Abbott, Stringham, and Lynch; Frank Rimerman; Green Hasson Janks. Just curious if it has affected your office at all and if you left for one of those firms, what is your experience so far?
I don’t have recruiters reaching out every day (or at all) so sorry if this is a dumb question. Is it reasonable to expect a salary range by email, or do you typically set up a call to discuss basics?
End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
Does someone know Average salary/increment for each position in consulting at IQVIA India?
