For folks who get a company phone, do you keep two separate phones - one for perosnal and one for professional use? At my current company, I just file an expense for my monthly cell phone bill, so I keep my own phone and use it for both work and personal use. About to start at MBB soon and wondering if people just use the company phone for both use? Is it ok/accepted if your checked personal emails, social media, other apps etc.. on the company phone?

Starting full-time @ MBB this month. I’m really interested in recruiting growth equity (GE) at some point. I’m pretty familiar with PE recruiting but not sure how growth differs. Anyone have perspective on any of the following: 1- Does ￼GE recruit on cycles? If so what is the typical timing? 2-￼ Are modeling tests standard as part of the interview process? 3- How are consultants perceived in the industry? 4- Do large GE firms utilize headhunters?￼￼￼ 5- Do large GE firms have operating roles?

Would love your insight around personal experience with hours per week, work-life balance, culture, etc. Offers are same level/role/scope (Change Management / Transformation / Human Capital) and same salary.
