Why did you apply to M&S if you wanted to be a generalist? Assuming you got an offer to be an integrative ASC/BA for the M&S practices, below my comments (it’s different for the expert track) You MUST be a generalist only if you don’t have a clue of what you like and you don’t have any specific edge or you really want to serve a specific industry but in all their functions. At least in the US (I understand this changes by geographies), don’t think as practice affiliation as a constraint but a privilege if you really like the function. This means that you’ll have a home inside the Firm, you’ll be prioritized for M&S staffing and M&S leadership will want to know you better. It doesn’t mean you’ll have to do all your work in that function, it doesn’t mean you can’t do a random walk across multiple industries, it doesn’t mean that for external eyes you’re not a McK consultant - especially as an ASC/1-yr EM. Above that, you’ll probably look for exits in the fields you serve at the Firm - you should be affiliated by then even entering as a generalist Take this with a grain of salt because each experience is different, but also take it from an EM who entered as a practice-affiliated ASC but only did ~30% of his work with the practices and has been rated distinctive every cycle

Are you exit opps only within your practice area? I’m wondering if I may want government or media or random and want to spend my time at mckinsey to decide

I’m here being humble, no ego with my ears open. I didn’t have the straight path to success like some people did but I landed an Analyst position at Deloitte. I had some entrepreneurial experiences before Deloitte but nothing successful. I’m here to ask for mentorship or advice from people that have 10M plus net worth. I have a 90k salary and basically 0 net worth. What advice would you give myself to at least make it to 5 M in 5 to 10 years if possible? Thank you 🙏🏽.

So, a month ago I was offered a data engineer position at a fintech firm. I was going to accept it. The interview process had taken over a month. Then, at the last minute, an old coworker/friend - who is a manager at FAANG now - randomly offered me a data engineer __contractor__ position at a FAANG. The rate was really good - more than the fintech company was offering as annual salary. Rate was 160/HR and fintech was 275K TC. The benefits are ok - it’s a W2 contractor. But I’m thinking of...

Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900).
