Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
When you move from priviate acct to public acct and are asked why you move, what is the best answer to pass this interview question?
Looking to Switch from Transfer Pricing into DDV, Valuations, or Operations consulting. Econ major. Worked as an equity research intern before joining the firm. Minor PE experience. Not sure if valuations is right for me but prepping for interview tomorrow. Any Advice?
Could anyone please tell me about the recruitment process for BCGDV (BCG Digital Ventures) ? I passed the 1st round and have a 2nd round with a Lead but unsure if there is a case study. Asked my HR coordinator who said it will be 45mins on past experience and competencies but no need to prepare. Still not sure about case studies and if yes, what type? Thank you
Hey Googlers. Currently going through the interview process and got there via referral. Im just curious how serious the actual referral is taken when considering someone for a job/interview? For example at B4 a referral just gets you a look at HR and the text of the referral and who it’s from doesn’t matter at all, it’s more of a checking a box exercise to get HRs attention. Is it the same at Google or is it more significant?
I am currently applying to consulting from undergrad and am wondering what the best additions to my resume would be. I currently have pro bono consulting and advisory experience with nice outcomes, have worked on some entrepreneurial projects, and have interned at a startup as well. What would be the best addition if I could choose between research work at my university, interning at another startup, and starting another company?
Had an interview last week that went well. The next day, HR sent an additional application to fill out (basically same info as the online app). Is that a good sign or usual process for 2 apps? Still waiting to hear back.

If anyone is looking for a job working in RSM's tax financial services group that has experience in either Private Equity, Hedge Funds, or Venture Capital space send me a message. Please have a resume for me to review and then I can get you setup for an interview. I am based on Los Angeles, but I am not concerned about location, as we need people in this space all throughout the firm. I spent 13 years with the big four before making the move and it was the best decision I have made.
Is there such thing as too much ass kissing in a job interview? Or everyone likes for the interviewee to do their research and act like they would really like to work for the company and the creative director they are interviewing with?
Your task is to blow a job interview in the first 30 seconds. What do you do? “How strict is the sexual harassment policy?”
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
I was contacted by a Facebook recruiter for a Data Scientist interview, but I'm not ready to take a new job right now. Should I take the interview for the practice or would that look bad if I want to seriously apply next year?
Any CBS ED applicants heard back on interviews / rejections? What does the average timeline of response look like?
Does Deloitte do case interviews for experienced hires in their Consulting - Marketing practice?
Deciding on 2 B4 offers, how do I tell the one I’m not taking? Email each person I interviewed with? Just the HR lady? Don’t want to burn bridges and have never been in this position before
Word for word, this is exactly how I feel about where we are. https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/07/against-the-covid-extremists/
Ever left a dumpster fire in your wake on your way out at a client? How'd you handle it?
You know what’s been fun as a L&E attorney during this pandemic? Having clients and partners take their frustration out on you when, as here in CA, mask mandates and other COVID requirements change.
My wife and I just had our first child and as she was waiting to be vaccinated (we went for her first shot on the way home from the hospital), we told both sets of parents to wait 3 weeks before flying to come see us. Understand that’s upsetting but her parents couldn’t handle it to the point that they stopped talking to her for three weeks half way through the pregnancy and then after saying they understood, flew to her sisters place (2 hrs from us) without telling us then called after..cont’d
Anyone in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) space? I am AEM architect and looking for change. Open for referral, if your team/company is hiring for AEM architect/Lead? Thanks
Working as Consultant at Cognizant Business Consulting now, I am being offered a role of Senior Business Analyst as a contractor for 1yr, initially for 6 months in Deloitte IN. I am a bit skeptical with this Contractor thing. Can someone guide me please? They say I don't have prior Big 4 consulting experience and hence this role.
Any rumors of PWC joining the parental leave arms race? EY and Deloitte upped theirs to 16 weeks paid leave, while Don Draper PwC kicks new parents in the nuts and tells them to get back on the road
Mom is sick in India, unfortunately we are counting days. Can my US born daughter visit her, then can I request for my wife’s H4 visa stamping with a reason of assisting US citizen (child) to travel back? My wife doesn’t have valid visa so she’s unable to come down and see my mom. I’m finding ways to get her a Dropbox appointment.
I started in January and I already feel that this job is having a strain on my relationship. I’m still working weekends after busy season and my s/o is upset I barely spend time with them. The rest of my team is constantly working so I feel bad if I set my boundaries and take time off.
Is the SM role like a junior partner at B4?
Our office is moving to another building and is going to have a new “no assigned desk” policy. We just sit wherever we feel like sitting, like a 7th-grade cafeteria. Seems like their intention is good but also sounds like a terrible idea. Has anyone else’s office done this? Not even sure how I’ll be able to request a second monitor now
Just started at a Family Law firm and am low on work (came from another state so didn't bring my clients with me). It has been a while since I started fresh. I make a decent base salary but I need those billable hours to make more. How long does it take to be busy again!? I've joined an expanding firm and the lead attorney is helping me by giving me tasks to do. Just not as busy as I'm used to (this will be my 3rd week). Just need a pep talk I think 😊
Why is attrition heavy in big 4?
👩👧 Anyone lost their mother when they were young? I’m in my mid 30s, and the older I get, the harder it feels (counter intuitively) ➡️
On an MBB case R1 interview, interviewer asked if I had info on future communication and I just said "Just finished R1 and R2 is going to come presumably based on R1 interviews", potentially implying that I thought nailed the case. I had not. I knew I'd bombed it. 😅😂🤦♂️ I literally found a way to bomb again in the last 30 seconds.
I feel like I’m on the outside looking in and I don’t like what I see. I haven’t returned to teaching this year because I was overwhelmed by what was being asked of us and chose to use all of my sick time instead. From this perspective, I see teachers being used and abused. I see teachers asking questions about situations that should never be tolerated. We are the professionals. Why are we allowing this? It’s the Stockholm Syndrome for education. We provide a valuable service. Remember that.
Just spent hours fine tuning a resume for an in house counsel role that was taken down in 48 hours. I know these things happen but UGH.
