I got a lot of rejections when I tried to leave consulting, some feedback was absolutely cruel. But I end up getting offer from the best employer with more money and less hours.

That’s amazing, hoping for the same luck! Been through 16 different roles interviewing but feel close to getting something at least

For me it was a strategy role within a very popular upcoming real estate tech company and it lasted around 4.5 months of interviews, follow ups and phone calls. In the end they said that the role was being upgraded to a higher manager level opportunity. Mind you, my final interview with them was the next day and they called me at 5:30 pm the day before. Felt like crap after that entire experience

Sorry to hear that’s insane how employers can just do that and not at least check if someone in another team is hiring with a similar role.. I had to sacrifice so much for those interviews and they said I left a really good impression… like just hire me then or refer me at the very least

Just got a lateral hire offer for a Sr Associate role with BCG. Contract states that I can go for Consultant promo in 12 months. I'm interpreting this as, if I don't make the promo threshold in 12 months, I'd be counseled out. Is this a reasonable assumption? Or would I get a few more months of time to work on feedback? I'm nervous - should I be? :(
