Hey all, So I need an advice. I’ve been through interview process with this company for like 3 months already. Last round of interviews was 4 video chats back-to-back with 4 different people. Hiring manager sent me today a feedback saying that they are still in the process of collecting feedback, but one of the things that popped up was “the lengthy of answers and sometimes not answering the asked questions.” He asks for my take on this and if nervousness played a part in this.

Guys I’d appreciate your perspectives on this: how big of an asshole am I for staying in the interview process for a few interesting opportunities despite having received an offer from one of my top choices (80% chance will accept). I’m a first year recruiting for summer 2021 internships FYI.

Got an interview opportunity at an IB recently for an Analyst role. I’m a Senior consultant with a Masters Degree with 2 years of work experience. When I asked if they’d offer me Associate instead of Analyst, they said that no one from B4 exits to an IB at associate with just 2 years of work ex. Is this true? Please offer any advise on how I should proceed further. Thanks.

For those who have made the leap to in-house from biglaw, how was it? We’re you scared going in? 5th year Corp. currently on to final round interviews for 3 companies (1 startup with a small legal team and 2 fortune 10 companies). Are companies quick to fire you if they think you’re not a good fit vs the longer, more drawn out lay-off? Was it hard to succeed immediately in-house? Would love to get insights bc I’m nervous about leaving the only thing I’ve known.

I hear a lot of bad things recently about Strategy& Middle East, in complete paradox with Booz & Co historical presence in the region (they used to talk about MBBB in the past): - Very bad Inchallah culture, completely dominated by Lebanese coming from AUB. - Greatly overstaffed (trend began weeks before covid) with tons of people on the beach. - Unhealthy competition between partners (they have more than 50 in the region). - Outsourcing their technical work to cheaper PwC. Any info?
