How strong/beneficial is the mck network? Interviewed for a tech biz dev position recently and the SVP sales was an associate in his early days. Didn't seem to value it much at all. May have hurt me.

Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy.

Looking for some advice for an upcoming interview with a (well-known) bank. Not a credit union.

My interview is to discuss what’s available and what path I may be best in or interested.

Ideally, I want to learn more about money (did not go to school for banking or financing, but had honors math in college).

I’m currently into learning more on the stock market, taxes, and how small businesses start up. Would like to be able to make maybe 60k/year (later down the road).

Any tips appreciated.

Something weird happened today.

Is this the normal process?

Seeking input:
I’ve received an offer to join a V50 at market (Class of ‘19, T30). Im currently a boutique where I’m being paid $160k. Despite being told my billables would be 120-150, I’m averaging 200 a month. Partner kind of leaves me to figure things out, and when I inevitably make mistakes, can be very demeaning. Is it a no-brainer to jump ship? Obviously I’ll be making more money for the same (if not less) billable hours. But what are some other considerations?
