We are way sold out. Literally cannot find an analyst or consultant. In DD Strat and haven't had beach time in a year.

A to C is 2 years unless you have some kind of unlucky promotion year fuckup like me that pushes it to 3. C to SC is 2-3 years, more 2 in the past but shifting towards 3 in the past year or two.

Dragon nerd? .... wait! Nerd Dragon!!

Viserion, undead dragon of PwC

Whoaaaaa

Viserion needs to sleep. But he's an ice dragon now.

Yeah, anecdotally the bench seems to be pretty thin... I had to deliberately disappear after my last project to get a couple weeks on the beach after 3 years of going straight from project to project.

What's the progression structure like at DD?

What does DD Strat do?

@IBM1 in terms of titles, DD has a couple career paths that follow the normal consulting path with traditional and specialist tracks (BTA - C - SC/SpS - M/SpM - SM/SpL/SpE - P/MD) as well as a creative studio track whose consulting equivalents start off relatively similar but gets a little murky past Studio Lead (lower-mid M level). Is that what you were asking about?

Yes thank you! C and SC are with how many years exp?

Last question – do you know what the salary range for a C is? And what the bonus structure looks like? sorry for all the questions, thank you!

First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.

Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?
