Do you guys get the sense we're more entrepreneurial than MBB? given smaller scale (at least in my office) there's a lot of unstructured staffing and project mgmt that both drives me nuts but...

By far the most common reason given by partners as to why they stay at RB is the freedom they have, whether it’s to pursue new opportunities, invent new ways of doing things, or pivot areas of focus. There are fewer rules and regulations, for better and worse. At the consultant levels, there’s more freedom too in a lot of ways. If you have a good idea and want to take the initiative, it’s relatively easy to make it happen. Entrepreneurship is definitely the most meaningful (although not necessarily the most important) of the three firm values. Also, for the record, RB1, I think you may be confusing entrepreneurial for innovative. A partnership structure is often, by nature, quite entrepreneurial.

I don’t think anyone looks at a consulting firm and calls them entrepreneurial. What service or product has RB created in the US?

MBB folks in Dallas, how is wlb, career progression, and quality of work? I understand pay is not adjusted for COL, so I'm wondering what are the perks over living in HCOL. I recall a study that said HCOL cities had a "supercharging" effect on people's careers because the extreme amount of economic activity means that new companies (and jobs) are always being created there, so either you're getting poached into better roles or you're getting promoted because your boss got poached. Thoughts?

Long story short: I work for a small healthcare consulting firm. Since COVID, I was going to the office once a week, every Wednesday. Today, I have put on my 2 weeks because I accepted an offer from a big 4. During my last 2 weeks, I had planned to see my family for the first week, and go to the office on my final week. Also today, my boss asks me to come in the office everyday next week. Should I say I don’t feel comfortable and just don’t go?What’s the worst it happen? Get fired lol

Always struggled w depression somewhat and go through low days where it’s hard to get out of bed. Usually spaced out though. But COVID has made this worse. Been very unable to put in consistent work. I live w my fiancé and he just told me he’s been thinking hard how to proceed w the relationship because he is brought low also by these struggles of mine and doesn’t want a partner who struggles w this (lazy wo willpower - paraphrasing). I don’t know what to do. He’s mentioned these things (cont)

Does it make sense to hire an executive career coach? So, I want to move on and find another job, also I would rather move to California or NY, I’m in MA now. My problem is that I’ve been with my current employer for 7 years, and they transferred me from Europe 5 years ago. I’m in my first VP job, and I got promoted from the inside. So my network is not really that big, it’s largest part consists of our employees, and I don’t have very deep connections in the HR community yet.

Interviewed with Google, Amazon, Cisco, McKinsey, and a few others and every-time there is something that is not a match... are the hiring managers looking for like 100% match? That will never happen!!!
