Been working for a boutique firm a little under a year. Came in as a senior consultant (due to previous types of experience mostly in government). 7.5 YOE, Masters, blah, blah.
Anyway, I came in at 90K. Recently got 3K bonus (split). Around my 6 month mark, recruiters have started reaching out with opportunities ranging from $140K-$170K. Currently interviewing with a few in that range. What a shock to me coming from public sector. I really undersold myself because I didn’t know any better. 💀
Anyone have experience turning down MBB? I did and feel quite bad actually as i really liked all the people i interviewed and cased with, and know that so many folks would kill for an offer.
Truth is, i just got an offer that was more aligned to my interests at this time, and possibly better positioning me for where i wanna go. Everyone was super gracious and we agreed to keep in touch and maybe revisit - if life allows i really might wanna revisit. Does anyone know what process is there?
I’ve got an interview coming up for a business school. Should I wear a tie that matches the colors of the school?
How bad would it look to bow out of the process without actually applying? Have sponsors already had to do anything on my behalf since the Intent to Apply?
I don't even know if I'm eligible yet and I'm already over this song and dance lol. I don't have a great story, and at the end of the day I don't need the money.

In taking over our strat dept I’m overhauling our recruitment plan with HR, but curious to hear opinions on interview exercises for mid and senior level folks.
I’ve always had to do them in interviews, but also don’t love that they’ve usually been ‘free thinking’ and often intensive, or don’t really help you understand their thinking.
Anyone employ exercises or assignments in recruitment that can share inspiration?
Interviewing for TSE role at Google Canada. Just got an email from recruiter that I have been passed to final stage which is Internal Review phase. And also asked my compensation expectations and joining date. Does this usually mean a positive result? What are the chances of offer being extended?

Hi there -
I applied to an experienced consultant position at Bain and just heard back. Yesterday, I received an invite to a HireVue one-way interview to complete. Today, I received an invite for a coffee chat with a consultant. I’m of course going to do both, but the emails make it seem like they are almost two separate paths/disconnected processes. Can anybody offer some insight into each of these/the process?

I’m getting married soon!!! And I feel like none of my male co workers understand how hard and time consuming it is to plan a wedding. They have zero empathy when I take a half day for a wedding related item, but are all about “where is the honeymoon” because as men that and the actual wedding day is all they had to think about 🥲 very frustrated

I wish it was more common for teams/clients to respect work/life balance. I was previously on a team where they encouraged everyone to log off by 5 if possible and to use all your PTO days. I didn’t take it for granted.
I’ve now transitioned onto a new team where I’ve been working 12+ hour days and I forgot that this isn’t uncommon. I’m so mentally, physically, and emotionally drained.
How do you set boundaries at work in terms of work life balance? I get advertising is a hectic field, but something has got to give. I love advertising but the burnout is real. Any tips 😭
Thinking about some of the old perks of Old Advertising, that we just thought of as normal. Today’s walks down memory lane: magazine subscriptions. If you knew somebody in the media dept (what’s that? Oh right sorry, the media dept was a part of the agency then), one phone call from them got you any magazine you wanted, free, forever.
I know right, so many questions. Whats a magazine? Whats a phone call?
