Isn’t Ankara a piecemeal of parts of other consulting firms that were sold off

They’re in the kinda tier 2.5 of rx (behind FTI). I see them mostly on creditor side work which is a different skill set than debtor work

Pay tho Berkeley at least compares very favorably and is known to have a good, collaborative culture. I can’t speak to Ankura

BRG plays well in the retail industry. Comp is lower than A&M but not sure by how much

Berkeley has decent pay and benefits. Culture is dependent upon your service area. Some practices are stronger than others. Upward trajectory into any form of Director role is not easy. Very tough to do.

Thanks for all the inputs!

Alix and Alvarez have higher pay, stronger reputation and contacts. Ankura is newer but on the table for most debtor side work. Culturally, Ankura culture varies per team. T&R is long hours, high expectations.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

I’m a 2nd year and effectively just ran a deal on my own with the partner. It ran smoothly, I got praise from the partner, and the partner said that they trust me to do most stuff without their sign off (so no need to check with them in future unless I’m really unsure). Generally there is one or two mid levels above me, and I find it way harder to do my job when they are managing me. They like to keep me on the bench, get me to do minor tasks and don’t let me take responsibility and ownership.

I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.
