I disagree with the first statement. ZS is new to science. ZS is the commercial consulting in life sciences. Pay for the entry level should be comparable.

ZS : Closer to science; PwC: Closer to commercial; also local model at ZS vs client based at PwC.

If you want to be in life science, you should take ZS unless there is something compelling you to consider PwC. By and large it is one of the best in its industry.

COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...

Partners. Were there stages in your career (Analyst, Consultant, Manager, etc) where you felt things weren’t clicking and that maybe consulting wasn’t for you? What did you do to get over the hump and still find a way to Partner? To be specific, I’m currently a C looking to make manager in a year, and there are manager level responsibilities that I’m struggling to execute proficiently (e.g., asking the right questions to the client, driving work with little guidance, etc)

Just got notified by the client that a bunch of people are going to be on vacation over the next few weeks. Completely understandable, but from a billing perspective that kind of sucks.

If you live with parents, would you max our Roth 401k ($19.5k) and after-tax retirement account ($15k) instead of investing through an individual brokerage? The after-tax $15k can be rolled into the Roth 401k right? Thinking of doing this since I can pull principal out of my Roth 401k after 5 years. Am I missing something here? Any better options?
