No. Why would they be? It’s not really transparent unless you’re in need of specific knowledge and get pointed to one. Then you’re grateful

Yes different from generalist. Same comp, still client facing, same team structures. Promotion path leads to Director not Partner, there are no selling requirements, and it’s not up-or-out.

Are expert track people considered 2nd class citizens at the firm?

I talked to a recruiter about a expert principal role, but the vagueness of the career path made me a bit uneasy plus the comp wasn’t any better than at AP.

BCG1 - I heard they are not well integrated into the teams and projects.

I agree with AP1, I felt the same way, it seems like the firm is using them to win more work but don’t plan on integrating them in the long term.

D1 - my experimence has been different. The career path isnt that vague. ECT goes Consultant-PL-Principal-Assoc Dir-Dir-Partner (by exception, but may be evolving). Principal comp is same as generalist 210-260 base (depending on level Pr1-Pr4), bonus up to 60-100% (again dep on level), free healthcare, 10% profit share on base+bonus

I’ve already asked HR a lot of questions and I don’t want to keep pestering them to avoid a rep for being that annoying associate before I even start lol. Thx!
