We hire very few folks at this level. Challenges and downsides would be exactly the same as hiring into BCG as Principal - the need to rapidly build your internal network and client base to be successful. Progression to partner likely slower (given the need to rebuild). Comp would be the same as every other AP (unless you have unusual expertise etc).

I would recommend coming as an EM, and push to AP in 12 months. Easier that way. That is the path I took joining from a big 4

@OP Curious what is driving the switch? Is it location or a desire to focus on a specific subject matter?

I have never seen a lateral EM/AP. I have seen lateral partners or experts (experts could be EM equivalent but lower pay and trajectory than an EM)

Mck 2- wrong on both statements- I had 2 EMs in my orientation. On the Expert side - it is not less pay than EM, very much in alignment with a 2nd year EM base and bonus .

Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300.

Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH?

As a client, what are Analytics teams using to monitor Paid Search day to day? Our agency uses SuperMetrics and Data Studio, which seems to deliver metrics at the campaign and ad group level well, but not the KW level. Thinking of Tableau or Power BI & blending Search with GA via an ETL (extract, transform and load) model, but the first has a steep learning curve it seems. Advice? Is it worth spending to automate this via tools like Looker, Adverity, Improvado, Datorama, Alight Analytics, etc.?
