Hilarious, wires take a larger haircut than RIAs and indys because of everything they "provide" and then make you pay for your own leads, headsets and hardware, client service software. What a joke.

RIAs don’t have a haircut. It’s just a different mind set. Wire house advisors are happy being “employee” and build a book. RIA want to be business owners and build a “firm”.

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.

Job listing: You must have an incredible creative reputation and internationally recognized work. Can we talk about how awards can largely be a pay-to-play scheme?

Every time I see a job listing requiring international awards, it sounds like another agency looking for the right “culture fit.” 🙄
