Consulting

I live in LA. I’m currently interviewing at McKinsey for a role offered in multiple cities outside of LA. It’s totally worth it to pack my stuff and make the move if I land this... but is there any chance that they would provide an option to stay in LA even if they don’t have an office here?

Is mckinsey one of those “boutique” firms everyone talks about? Good luck!! Hopefully you can use this as a stepping stone into a prestigious firm one day 😊

We do have an office in LA!

Not likely but it does depend on the role (CSP/ESP/FSP) and office capacity. You would need approval from the office managing Partner and regional office managing partner to add a headcount to the LA office.

Regarding layoffs, would anyone accept a pay cut to keep their current position? I wonder if that’s a viable solution when you have to cut costs, but also want to keep reasonably talented people.

I have five years big 4. Always did well bonus and promotion wise. In between I left for IT sales to make more money but being in Boston I would of had to move for better opportunities. Now I’m back in consulting and miss the freedom of sales. Anyone in my position? I felt this way before quarantine too. The SM on my project almost got divorced so she worked so much, then she said I realized it just my life. It’s just too unhealthy. Thoughts bowlers?

I realize it's just a TV show and that there are MBB/IB levels of boring hours in law, but how accurate is the good wife at portraying various aspects of the legal life, such as interactions within the law firm, interactions in the court room, etc. I've always reaally liked law. I've represented myself in and won several court cases. Spent hours studying state law to craft my case. Got a huge kick out of it.

When companies decide to delay their return to the office, what are they basing it on? Local laws? Building restrictions? Mgmt’s thoughts on COVID? Fall school/day care? Layoffs? Rent reductions? I have a theory that companies’ decisions to return to the physical office are based on different considerations.
