Is there a point at which joining a high growth startup in a S&O role is difficult without taking a big pay cut? My trajectory will be: 6 yrs MBB > 2-3 years FAANG product strategy
Expecting promotion at end of year, what salary should I expect/negotiate? 2 year post MBA at strong boutique firm, pay in line with MBB. Is $180-190K base with 30-40% bonus low/high? NYC based.
Do any EMBA programs offer on campus recruiting? What are chances for MBB or other strategy firms?
Does BCG Platinion sponsor their employees for MBAs or is that reserved for core BCG employees? Is it restricted to 10-12 top cohort people per year like in B4?
What skill set do I need to get out of big 4? Are big 4 considered to be the bottom of food chain? My ultimate goal in my life is to be able to post here with a logo to make you all jealous.
So I heard the move used to be if you don't get the promotion from PwC after 2 years you try and go to another big 4 and get senior. Now I'm assuming it's a little more difficult or impossible? Is there a hiring freeze across the board?
I posted this in a different bowl. Gonna post here as well - if anyone knows about employers that are sponsoring H1B, other than the big 4 and other consigning firms, please share the names..
MBB folks who successfully lateraled: how did you manage the guilt of letting off the gas on your current projects to prep for first rounds? Only billing a client 50 hours a week, I give those 50 my 100p but have learned this drains out focus from 6pm-10pm case prep...teams been great to me, out of PTO. Am I being too nice?
How do the Big 4 ensure that the separation between their member firms is meaningful enough for liability protection? This concept seems to apply more to paper than fact given firms’ interconnections
Do consultants at MBB or Top 4 REALLY change the world for the better? In other words, does the world really need us?
Hi anyone knows if MBB cuts MBA sponsorship this year and next years? At least some T2 firm cut this up to 80-90%. I’m speaking from Europe offices. Thinking of lateral from T2 to MBB
Why stay at a big 4 when tech companies are paying way more, with great benefit, and stock options? Is there light at the end of this tunnel?
Anyone know if big 4 tax will support earning a PMP certification? (And/or allow you to expense exam/education costs?) I’m a CPA and PMP isn’t required, but think it’s valuable long term
Best strategy firms known for work in the Consumer Goods, Retail, Tech-entertainment (Spotify, Apple) spaces? Other than MBB, of course😉
Any advice on leaving big 4 for industry? I’m currently looking at exit opportunities, I’m just not sure what exactly i want to do yet.
Advisory folks... how long did you study for the cisa? Trying to take it at the end of September with 50 hour work weeks. Thoughts?
Art Directors: If you write scripts during initial concepting, how many scripts do you typically write in comparison to your writer?
Did a leukemia and lymphoma charity walk tonight with the KPMG team. The rest of the big 4 were there as well. 🚶🏻♀️🚶🏻🚶🏻♀️🚶🏻♀️🚶🏻♀️🚶🏻🚶🏻🚶🏻🏃🏻♀️
I kick ass at work, but after a 6 week M&A project plus some alt travel thrown in.... this is my life
Big 4 Mgr looking to exit to TAM/ Engagement Mgr. roles at AWS or Microsoft. Anyone willing to refer?
Fish fam, anyone have suggestions on how to excel in a final round interview with a Big 4 partner which is now going to be a one-on-one lunch meeting? Any tips appreciated!
This may sound dumb, but I don’t want to ask friends yet. My husband and I have been trying just for a few months to get pregnant. I am now 4 days late and I’m wondering if it’s too early to take a test. I’ve never been late in my life, so it’s all kind of freaking me out. But I also don’t want to get ahead of myself.
For interviews do you talk about all of your experiences (e.g internships during undergrad) or only the full time jobs you have had? Or should just just focus on the most recent (current &last job)
McK no longer requires undergraduate hires to go through the Associate role before being promoted to EM; why haven’t BCG and Bain responded yet? Does this affect cross offers
What do you think some of the best kept secrets are in terms of groups? Private placement looks pretty laid back. We do most of the work on the coverage side and seems like similar comp. other groups?
F 🐠 - on dating apps, do you generally disregard men who are not from your preferred ethnicity and/or religion, even if they are attractive?
I want to leave ACN for more strategy work or research focused work. Tired of hearing it can’t be done unless i get an MBA ( not ready for that ). Tips on somehow making it? cont
I have been told by someone at McK that they only hire experienced hires with 3-5 yoe. I’ve also seen maybe people of FB with 1yoe get in/interview. What’s the truth on this?
New to consulting world — I’ve heard different labels for tiers of firms: Big 3, Big 4, M7, Top 15, etc. Some of these were easy to Google, but is there an exhaustive explanatory list somewhere?
