Associate then lateral after a year


How many YoE do you have?


That’s BS mate. You can end up in a thousand places that will pay you as well or close. Plus those mega funds are more and more standardized in comps plus less access to equity. You should re-think what you really want to do tbh


That gap is too large. Go 150k. Prestige doesn’t pay your bills.


The 110 is with 70% bonus and the 150 is with 100% bonus

Honestly, I’d go do M&A finance at a tech company.

There are M&A finance roles specifically but could also look for corporate development analyst roles.

Associate 100%.

Come do tech M&A at SVB

Is that what you switched to? Can I get the elevator pitch?

I recently accepted an offer for a new position at another company. The new role requires a TS/SCI clearance. During the investigation will they contact my current employer? I just accepted the new offer and I’m planning on quitting mid January and will start the new position in June. Should I go ahead and tell my current manager that I’ve accepted another position or just wait it out and deal with it if she’s contacted and brings it up before my I give my notice?


I took a new job in order to move across the country for my husband's promotion and I hate my new job. The role sold to me by the recruiter and company leadership is not at all what I am actually doing. I am so overworked it's unreal. At first I thought that maybe I just sucked, even though I'm a seasoned sales professional with 11 years experience, but then I found out that I have 227 accounts vs the 35 & 64 that my counterparts have. Do I go over my boss's head and discuss with leadership?

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions?
