Planning to exit from 1st yr Engagement Mgr to industry Director level. Base comp / benefits that should be reasonable to ask? Thinking of 200-225 base plus bonus. Reasonable? Current: 169 plus bonus.
Interviewed on the brand side with a very well known beauty company. They wanted to take my 5 years of experience and only pay $65k (NYC). The recruiter said I should really be flexible and be open to a salary cut if I want to move to the brand side. I know this such bullshit having done other interviews in the past.
How to convert a 12 month contract to a full time role? Asking for a friend, hasn’t started yet. They got contacted by a recruiter and will be employed by Google directly (not via consultancy etc)
Am currently working in strategy consulting, wondering what it’s like to interview for Strat positions in industry/tech firms? Are there cases? Am beginning to prep for exiting.
Do other agencies have a “no hiring people from Vayner” policy or is my inability to land a new job just because I suck?
Got an offer that I am not too excited about but really need to get out of current job. I have a few other potential interviews in the pipeline. Do I accept this job (incl. sign contract) and bail later or do I reject?
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
LEK🐠, how different is our casework (pack creation / iteration, model approaches, expert interview formats) compared to MBB? If it’s fairly similar, I’d turn down the MBB offer I have to pivot into tech. If MBB gives a new consulting experience, I’d accept. Generalist path. TIA🙌🏼 L.E.K.

Had a second interview with the head of the group and after he told me they’re still bringing candidates in for the next couple of weeks and I should stay tuned in. So, what gives? Should I take this as a soft rejection? It is my experience that when a firm wants you they’re more inclined to give definite timelines and not hedge their bets as much…. Am I reading too much into this?
Anyone have global entry? What was your experience with the TSA interview? And is it all worth it? Im justifying it as a small extra fee on top of Precheck.
Has anyone gotten a job by applying via LinkedIn or the company’s website rather than a recruiter or referral? Feeling like sending my resume in where I have no contacts is worthless :(
Should I ask for a raise? My 6-month review is next week and I’m thinking about asking for a raise. I’ve never asked for one before and normally would never think of asking for one until at least 12 months but in the last couple of months my role and responsibilities have enhanced significantly. I don’t have much experience as this is my first job in advertising (comms background) and I don’t want to come off as naive or ignorant! Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!

What’s the dress code for virtual interviews now? Have a first round with BCG and debating if a crisp shirt will be fine, or if I need a suit? It’s also super hot, so don’t want to be sweating the whole time 😓

I need INTENSIVE case interview coaching. (probably 10-12 weeks of daily sessions). Where should I look and how long should I be casing before submitting the application? I’m especially concerned about spending $5,000 just to get dinged at the resume stage. Any tips on how to navigate that?

Has anyone been scammed by a crypto scam? Recently I was scammed $800 (not a big amount, but lesson learned). If any has a similar experience, please share so that we can avoid these scams.
At my 1st industry job. Another analyst starting the same time as I is annoying the heck out of me. He never shares information, and always just repeats what I said in group messages, emails, zoom meetings (and prompts me to go first). He even stalks my calendar and compares the schedule overlap with our manager’s to figure out my meetings and schedule🙃. He also pushed me under the bus (he didn’t do a task even though i reminded him, yet he said I didn’t do it either together). Just here to vent
Managers and above, what was your base salary increase when jumping from one B4 to another?
