I’ve decided to make my career in the government side of consulting. Been doing it 10 years. Seems hard to find jobs where I manage people unless at a big 4. Anyone else find this true?

Nope. Our managers and senior managers manage teams all the time.

No, there are plenty of opportunities outside the big 4.

Ok MBB exits opps, one of the more qualitative benefits of MBB over B4, yet seems tricky to measure this? End goal is VC or startup founder or Chief of Staff at startup. As a top performer at B4 is this gap really significant? I feel that I get a much wider variety of work at B4 than I would at MBB.

Finally, she said she's not going to process the profile with an almighty attitude. Such an arrogant tone from Big 4 HR. I wonder this MNCs have idiots as HRs
