Unless you have a referral just treat it as a shot in the dark and don’t really expect anything to come of it. But it can vary, I was contacted by BCG like 2 months after I submitted my original application.

Thanks C1. I’ll wait for another 6 weeks. 😂

Damnnnn. Speechless

You absolutely, absolutely need an employee referral to even be considered, regardless of experience and stats. You also need to network with senior leaders and develop relationships so they can vouch for you.

Yeah, not true at all. It helps, but not required.

You’re also off-cycle right now so recruiters may not be extending invite offers at the moment. That can vary from office to office as well

I’m from Australia where no such cycle exists, please aware me of the American rhythms wise McFriend

It was about 2 months before recruiter reached out me from McK.

Thanks all. I guess I should just be more patient.

Without a perfect rest of your profile (4.0/800/story that brings people to tears/ well-written recs from top partners, etc), does being at Deloitte mean an automatic rejection for H/S? Is it necessary to move to MBB/FAANG/a more well regarded firm?

Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?

I work full time in a (foreign) country where employees are protected pretty well. Our agency lost clients and they need to lay people off. I’m on that list too. They are convincing us to accept a voluntary resignation with 5 months of salary. I can refuse (law will protect me) and stay on but I have barely any billable work to do and of course this will create some toxic relationships with management. (CONT)
