All I know is that you won’t be able to work from Cabo, it seems.

Cross-office staffing is huge given WFH and because of its efficiency. You can touch on industries that perhaps the NYC office normally wouldn’t. Also ZS - it is a thing and we hit it about 80% of the time. Pretty sweet

Thanks! And what would you describe the typical work day like? Happy to dm if that’s better!

Well, we know they have that sweet "out by 6" day

funny

Love how there’s always an insecure ZS’er every time LEK is mentioned

Pretty similar across offices - assuming you’re coming in at the associate level, you can expect a normal day to be 9am-10:30pm or 11pm M-W and then 9-6pm Th and F!

How much emphasis does your firm put on your personal dollars sold in determining your comp/success and how does it incentivize collaboration? At BCG (1) evaluation is pretty heavily focused on dollars sold (have heard that McKinsey is more focused on 'impact' and 'relationships', even if these are sometimes thinly veiled proxies for revenue) and (2) we are structurally incentivized to involve exactly two other partners in any given project (have heard McKinsey is "the more the merrier").

My friend is wondering how to approach a raise conversation with her new boss. A data analyst on her team left so she’s been taking over that position on top of her regular job (spending ~50% of her time) and working a lot more now (40 hrs a week to 60 hrs). She’s not really interested in the data work, but she’s happy to do it if she can get a raise. How can she best approach this with a new manager that just joined 1-2 months ago?
