Is a move into BCGs specialist track from a Big4 generalist track a bad move?

If you want to be a generalist, yes it's a bad move.

If you want to be more specialized, then no, it's a great move.

Depends on “which” specialist track.

While there’s no hard up-or-out, there are still regular progression intervals, so you shouldn’t worry about that. And while you won’t be a partner, Platinion MDs also have a long runway up to Global Lead, with similar responsibilities (albeit less prestige).

My previous comment was directed at D1 and our expert track btw. Platinion don’t have that much (global) travel, it’s more staffing and travel within your system.

What generalist track are you on now?

Agree Accenture 1. The worst tech strategy is done by anyone without implementation experience. I guess that why MBB are picking up resources from Accenture and Big4

Do you think obtuse ARGs like ‘I love bees’ or Junko Junsui are things of the past? Or something that AR/VR might revitalize? Anybody know anything like them going on nowadays?

Hello People,

3 questions for ya'll:

1) Do we need to sign an employment bond, if we are offered an opportunity to go secondment/STA for few days/months with an onshore entity of the PwC Network?

2) Since secondment opportunity is offered to a select few, what does it mean for that individual in terms of growth, in terms of compensation and designation.

3) Can we negotiate and get a pay raise before signing an employment bond?

Thanks in advance!

Please do excuse how dumbed down the example is, I’ve had to replicate the problem on a much smaller scale with all sensitive data removed.

“Location” refers to a location of stored data and “User group” refers to the user that has access to the location.

I am attempting automate the finding of all instances of where the “U1” user group occurs but exclude it if another user group also has access.
Continued below….

Is Facebook (Meta) lowballing? I have 11 years of consulting and industry experience. I recently interviewed for a Program Mgr role.

Midway through the interview process, they came back saying this role has changed and they can only hire an IC5 and are offering $230K. I am an M4 currently and last year I made about $210K. What’s your suggestion on how to counter this?
