Was matched on LinkedIn to some new job posts at Bain for Manager, Client Engagement for NPS Prism. Looks like they’re hiring in a bunch of cities. Anyone familiar with the group? The JD is a pretty basic but aligns really well with my role and experience. Curious if this is a good in to MBB.
Got call from HR informing that my Technical round is clear in Wipro. Asked my Expected CTC and choice of location. I said 19 LPA ( I already have an offer of 17 LPA with 5 years of experience in Java backend).
Then she disconnected saying she will call me later. I didn't get it. No discussion, no negotiation, just 2 minute call.
Can anybody share light on this ?

I’ve been working on a pitch that continues to get delayed and it’s poorly managed. The RFI was due in July. Then days AFTER submission I received an email from the consultant saying we now had until August. End of September rolls around and frankly I had forgotten about this 100-page beast. They want a meet and greet….the following week. The day before the meet and greet we get a list of questions (that aren’t easy softballs). Now 2 weeks later and nothing. What a gross feeling this process is

How do other agencies structure salaries and commissions for new business directors? What commission rate?
I find myself looking for a new role in agency / production company biz dev. I co-founded a creative production agency back in 2010. Grew it to a staff of 80 FTE, creating strategic content-driven campaigns for brands, tv networks, streamers, platforms, publishers etc. We developed and produced original TV as well. Around 2016 we positioned the company for sale and then sold in Jan 2019. After going over to the acquirer in 2020, I’m now free for the first time in a long time. What to do?
Any McCann NY new business fish in here? I see you have an opening and would love to get the inside scoop.
Hi all! First : shout out to the folks who sold the super bowl clients! Question for all. What tools are you using for biz dev? For finding clients specifically.

Any other online tools you are using? Thanks!

Please comment with a bit about you and your role. Thanks!
