Additional Posts in Consulting
Re-posting this from the consulting bowl: I recently started doing Strategy Consulting doing CDD/ODD work and found myself enjoying the work a lot. I want to do buy-side work down the road and previously set my sights on MM IB opportunities to get there. Now I'm debating between leaving my firm to a T2 like LEK/EYP or going to a MM IB firm, but I'm unsure 1) which places me in PE better and 2) if former consultants are "looked down" in the PE world compared to former IB people. Any insights?

Business Development or Marketing in biopharma? Which is more interesting and rewarding? Marketing (and eventually GM) seems to be the top dog in big pharma companies with P&L responsibility, but jobs are limited to commercial companies. BD can exist throughout the development cycle and so you can find opportunities in more exciting cutting edge biotech companies. But BD seems to be a less direct path to C-level and more niche.

Is it a negative sign that my interview gets completed in 30-35 minutes ?
Talking specifically about Service based and Big 4 companies.
Does it mean, I will not get shortlisted in the interview?
What does it mean when you feel “comfortable” with your SO? Still relatively new (less than 4 mo) but feel like we’re not exploring as many deep conversational topics, having more relaxed nights in.

Career advice- if you had the option to either join Strategy/Finance at a big tech or work there as a SWE what would you do? Was offered those choices or stay DS or become PM at my current T2 tech co. I see lots of people with big TC in the first group at FAANG but I’m still not sure what finance does, they’re all ex MBB/IB folks
Failed McKinsey Round 1 in 2020, but was asked to reapply (keep in touch). Do I just reach out the recruiter, apply through referral, or apply directly? Thanks!!!

Anyone else get annoyed by these two things:
At the conclusion of a town hall on Teams every idiot and their mother thanking the presenters in the meeting chat. Each of these people should be on a layoff short list for blowing up my notifications (yes I know I can mute the meeting).
After a meeting is running over the scheduled time people commenting in chat they have to leave for another meeting, just go no one cares.

New to consulting... If your project is likely to get an extended/new contract but you do not want to get extended with the project, do you have a lot of say in pushing back and saying no?
PTO means time off.
Not kind of time off. Not "hey could you do this one thing for me". Not "trying to save the client money so use your PTO but you'll be working". Not "let's turn everything into an emergency so they have to work".
It isn't a suggestion that they are unavailable. They are unavailable.
If you don't respect their time off, then why should anyone respect yours?
Do not be reaching out to your teammates that are on PTO.
Whatever it is, it can wait.
