Bus dev efforts are usually handled by managers and SM. You’ll be on a team but seniors are usually doing staff work since we don’t have a pipeline of staffs (probably 10 in the west region). Teams are a lot smaller and you’ll most likely be working with a manager + SM consistently. FAAS is general is a small practice but we’re trying to grow a ton

I think at the senior level, it isn’t an expectation but it’s highly encouraged. I don’t think it becomes and expectation until you are up for promo for manager and the subsequent levels. In terms of the the teams, I’ve never heard of a solo senior doing everything. You would be placed with at least a manger or SM that would conduct review of your work and drive the project. That’s been my experience at least.

I guess it would be easier to sell advisory services over an audit. Also thanks for the replies.

Hey all, I know MBB sponsor international candidates but at what stage they look at your visa situation. Do they take into consideration initially before sending you any online assessment test and while reviewing your CV or they look for it after you go through interviews. I had a chat with previous McKinsey consultant and he was like you automatically get cut off from the system if you select 'require visa sponsorship'. Not sure if it is true or not?

Anyway I can apply again or restart the process or am I SOL here?
