Depending on where you’re coming from, it is an intense, competitive environment. Not necessarily sink or swim, but it’s up-or-out strategy consulting, so you don’t have much time or leeway to prove yourself (at any level). It’s high stress, high pressure pretty much all the time, but I doubt it’s any worse than any other strategy firm


I’m going off of the target range for tier 4-5 and anecdotal evidence from what I’ve seen across A’s and SA’s (for what it’s worth, have been here for four, never bothered to change my title). May be different across groups / levels but 20% seems steep!


You're not going to find a top strategy firm that isn't intense. There are just some that pay more haha. As others have pointed out, diversity is not good here. Culture is fine for the most part but nothing to write home about either. Benefits are bad vs other strategy firms, likely due to being part of PwC.


I honestly love it here. It is pretty tough sometimes but once you get into a niche that you enjoy, it can be great. I like my team a lot but I won’t say that there aren’t teams that are less than fun. Honestly, there are not many women. Depending on your vertical, it’s between 15-35% women. Very few female partners. Women partners and directors do take care of other women within S& and the women’s network is constantly hosting events and sending out news letters.

I feel like every company lies about “working your way up.” You’re never allowed to blatantly say that you don’t like your position and you’d like to transition to HR or Finance. It’s almost as if once you get in claims, you’re stuck. If you’re a manager and you see an employee that wants to branch out into a different department, why would you keep them boxed in for 2+ years? Are there some background mechanics that I’m missing?

I’m hoping to get some career advise here as I’m totally lost. I graduated from undergrad last august and I’ve been working as an AML-KYC Analyst since 7 months in one of the top 3 banks in Canada. This role is kinda boring now and I’m afraid to get stuck in it for the long run. I would potentially like to pivot into a more Risk/Compliance Consulting role but am not sure how to. Who should I be networking with and how should I approach this? Can somebody help?


Anyone here had a hard time letting go of their first property and renting it out? I love my home and put a lot of effort into it, so the sentimental value of it is making it hard to move forward with renting it out long term. I know that's silly, and I need to be realistic. I can get a great return (and I have another home). It just hard letting go. Any advice to change my mindset to feel less sentimental about it?


Hello! My AOS forms are being drafted.I posed this question to the attorneys & also wanted to ask here.I want to use my family home address as my mailing address instead of my physical address (apartment address) because my lease ends in august and I might move. If I was to move out I’d move back to my family home. Will this cause an issue ? Currently my draft forms are showing different mailing address - one is showing physical address while other is showing family home address.Cont in comments
