Any fish familiar with Apple's OPD group? Thoughts on potential exit and expected base comp? MBA with 5 YOE, seems like it might be a step down from MBB Associate comp but tempted by tech exit and work life balance...
Applying to industry after 2 yrs in a data-heavy strategy consulting role, and running into an odd problem: people are automatically putting me into a "heavy-quant" box and becoming apprehensive of my fit for a business role (strategy, FP&A, etc). 2 Qs: 1. Does this sound plausible, or am I overthinking based on a small sample? 2. How would you highlight your fit/interest in moderately quantitative roles? Consultants generally like my "Context> result> personal contribution" format of bullets
Any good resources to check out in preparation for an interview at Oliver Wyman? Courses / websites / books, I’m looking on how to best prepare.

Curious for those seeing a therapist are you seeing a black woman? Do you feel like race and gender doesn’t add to the comfort of opening up in therapy?
Interviewing for a great position in industry (tech). They have equity comp & great benefits. Spoke to their HR, then interviewed with 2 people in the tax department and am getting scheduled for a next round of interviews. The only problem is: the office is about 1 hr from my house (I own). They said repeatedly that they want someone who will be in the office 5 days a week. I would actually move but can’t rent out my place now due to some repairs going on that will take 4-5 months. Thoughts?

Broadly speaking, for a given generic consulting role, which B4 firm pays the most? Which pays the least?
First time GMAT, scored a 650. Practice tests were coming in around 680, but bombed quant (41Q, 38V, 8 IR). I am confident that I can score better my next time around, but out of curiosity, what rank of school could I possibly get into with this score? 2 years work experience B4 consulting, very solid undergrad involvement/GPA. Trying to decide if it’s worth applying to my target schools this year or if I delay for another year in order to study more.

I’m currently thinking of applying to Ms Data Science at Harvard University (https://www.seas.harvard.edu/applied-computation/graduate-programs/masters-data-science). 1YOE, Strong T2, Canada 1st University, 3.5 GPA Electrical Engineering, 5 months internship in Food-tech startup (No GRE as it is not considered in the application). Do I stand a chance?
Do people at Junior Levels not lead meetings in industry? I just got asked if I had that experience during an interview. I have to lead a meeting/lead a portion almost everyday. So it’s weird that I would get asked this question.
Well I'm gonna ask for help on here, anyone know if their firm is hiring in consulting either S&O or HC?

Any 🐠 looking to hire a consultant with S&O + M&A experience?

Currently interviewing for two FANG positions in ops, but would love to expand my search! Thanks!
Ladies who have been promoted to a manager role, what would you say is the greatest different between it and your time as a consultant/senior consultant? I know this varies slightly between firms but I’m considering going for a manager promotion down the line but want to make sure I’m comfortable with what will be expected of me (and see what I need to work on to be successful).

Told my pregnant sister yesterday for the first time that I don’t want kids (fear of having a special needs child + thinking of the world I would be bringing them into) and her first response was “not everyone wants to nurture and take care of others” and went on about how she has always been someone who takes care of others. It’s so upsetting that this is the kind of judgement women place on others when they say they don’t want children. Child free women how do you manage?

Hey 🐠, I’m trying to understand if I need to be looking for lateral exit opportunities from a compensation perspective. I’m a Manager in the M&A IT practice, 12 YOE (7 in Tech and 5 in Consulting). I am happy with the work I do and the people I work with are tolerable. New base salary is $178K starting this month. Asking because I’ve heard that people should keep jumping from one company to another in Consulting to have a competitive comp. Basically guys, is my compensation competitive?
