Does anyone have any advice on connecting with sr leadership and building those relationships? My first job was at a startup with a very casual culture but after transitioning to consulting everything seemed much more hierarchical and formal, so I adjusted my communication style. 18 months in I wonder if I’ve “over corrected”. My conversations with leaders have all been very formal and purely business related, do you try to fit in more casual conversations with leaders at your org?

Yes allow them to get to know you. It's like building any relationship. Share anything that you are interested in outside of work. For me, i love to eat so im always talking about food and restaurants.

I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for.

My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?

For those of you burned out on corp culture and "playing the game", how are you coping and managing your career?

It seems unreal that I'll need to keep this game up for 30+ more years.
