Do they actually do strategy work?

Less pure strategy from a % mix standpoint than MBB, but it’s definitely done. That said, the groups of people that do it are cliquey. So some people just do a ton over and over again and some people don’t get staffed on them ever because they don’t have experience. Other non-Strat work are stuff like Op Model, ZBX, pricing etc.,

Had one a couple of months ago. It was a pretty straight forward marketing case. Case prompt and then I did a framework. They gave some data in a table that required some mental math to do a market size calculation and the showed 4 more charts I had to analyze and revise my original conclusion.

Is making a lateral move for a consultant role from a B4 to at a startup worth for about 25% increase in TC? I see a lot of people here switching for large increases and curious if I’m making the wrong decision. Have an opportunity to be more technical if i stay at B4 or will be into PM/Strategy work at a startup which is less enjoyable.

Feel silly reaching out here but would love some perspective. I want to understand how much cash to keep. Currently have $305k in a Marcus account that’s earning nothing. It’s split between emergency and longer term savings. I’ve been thinking about opening a Marcus robo advisor brokerage to put some in to get better returns than the 0.05% HYSA. Any help would be great.

Interviewed for Deloitte S&A Tech Strategy SC and got a verbal offer for Consultant instead. I negotiated the offer to 120K salary and 10K signing bonus. I’m a boomerang with 4 years ERP consulting but this past year I’ve been doing DEI Consulting. Spoke with former colleagues who rejoined Deloitte and got a much higher offer for SC. How do I go back to the recruiter to negotiate further? I suggested that I’d probably sign but need time to think. Now I’d like to go back and request 140k salary.

I think if someone has served the country, they should be granted Veteran's Day off as a paid holiday. Not forced to use their accrued PTO, or sick day. It's a holiday they earned for the rest of their lives. Call me crazy but this makes sense to me.
