How long does it usually take for the recruiter at ZS to reach out after the R1 interview? Had my first-ever consulting interview on Friday so I’m not too sure about the process. Anything so I can convince myself that I didn’t get rejected
In all honesty, I understand people are leaving Big 4 right now because they have decent exit ops or better WLB ops, but what about people working at small/boutique firms making $100-105k as a SC/M? Is it worth it to join a Big 4 if you can potentially get a 20-30% pay increase, i.e. is the increase in salary worth the headache and travel?Deloitte Accenture PwC EY
Upcoming interview for Mckinsey’s RADAR team. Anyone have any insight into what I might expect? McKinsey & Company
In the DC area. Looking to exit and have two offers: Current Senior Consultant: 97k Capital one SR project manager: 107k Freddie Mac SR business analyst: 125k I’m looking for WLB and flexibility and a slower pace of work. Seems like Freddie might be a busier oppertunity, any advice on this offer? TIA
I accepted a huge promotional offer to a manager role in industry. So I am leaving big4 as a senior. My background check just came through and somehow they have my big4 salary listed, even though I’m 99% sure I checked the box they couldn’t contact my employer. Could the company take back my offer for something lower?
I will be graduating this Fall, currently interning for TI as a Product Marketing Engineer; I will most likely accept an offer for their Technical Sales Representative 9month rotation program. The pay seems great ($113k base&bonus + 115% - 250% Payout) after finishing the rotation program. I enjoy the Sales Engineer role and think TI is a great company. Is it worth it to still apply to other companies this Fall recruiting season? (I want to be in San Francisco and possibly NYC.)
To what extent can we talk about our clients we served on when speaking with recruiters vs hiring managers of the actual company? (Name of the client, nature of work, etc)
Of the last 18 hours I billed, I have worked for 2 hrs, interviewed/applied to other firms for for 3 hrs and slept for 7. Prior to this behavior, I had a 4.5/4.5 scatter plot and 105% utilization. I make $5000 more than your new hire BTA, with 5 yrs of exp, and I was denied a market adjustment. You get what you pay for, D(an)

Thoughts on exiting to IB subsidiaries of public accounting firms (big 4 corporate finance, baker tilly capital, bdo capital, etc). I know they’re not necessarily equivalent to going to a BB or even a pure play MM IB but can they still open up good exits and create better MBA prospects than say transaction services experience?
Got an offer to join a startup, originally meant to take on the Chief of Staff role, but unfortunately title has been given away to someone else. I’m still interested in joining the company though, and have license to come up with my own title. Any title suggestions? (Won’t be a managerial role)

Is it okay to tell your boss you aren’t feeling well and need to take a sick day because of medication side effects?
