We only do strategy and DD work. RE: sponsorship, I’m not 100% but I think so.

LEK if you want pure strategy work, and great exit opportunities including PE. Worse WLB though.

2.5 YOE in consulting - being offered partnerships role at Sony. Comp doubled but am also interviewing with MBB. Should I take it or stick with consulting? I’ve enjoyed consulting so far (to promote this year), but am also a music lover!! Not sure if exiting now is ideal if I can exit out to a more senior role in future. Any ideas on how’d you approach this?

Hey guys, I have been interviewing with GCP for a TAM role and heard from the recruiter that the role I was interviewing for is filled up. However he said he’s on the lookout for other teams and managers to see if they are interested in hiring. Wanted to understand how much time does team match take and if currently GCP has any opportunities for TAM? The recruiter wasn’t sure of the timeline and when I could expect to hear from a team and I’m wondering what will happen next!

I’ve gotten emails lately talking about how we are hiring at Accenture and asking us to tap into our networks, so figured I’d post on here. Needs being called out can be seen in the picture. I can’t promise I’ll respond to everything but if anyone wants a referral feel free to reach out. Also, I work in healthcare and I’ve gotten separate emails from leadership about how we need to hire more people there too.

Let’s specify if we are mid market, enterprise etc. so we can see how the comp compares. Are the goals they set for commission and bonus realistic?

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.
