Not withstanding the snarky remark above.... There is no difference between Generalists and Implementation in the factors you mentioned. Both streams do similar work (though implementation does get staffed on studies longer, but not always), have exact same learning opps, same promotion, exit opps, and the vast majority don’t even know who is implementation vs who is generalists so no “respect” issues. The real difference is that implementation tends to be experienced hires who have “lived the problem” and their training and focus is a bit slanted towards long term sustainability of impact

I see. It can be a mixed bag regarding the kind of relevant experience McK implementation looks for then? I believe this would be based on busines need - eg. Functional experience, industry expertise, etc

Thanks M1 and M2! I’m contemplating an offer from MI and had heard from some generalists that MI is “2nd class consultants” and that really threw me off.

Could you share what that’s based on? Just trying to understand

Surprised there isn’t a similar divide here to Strategy& and PwC’s Management consulting (pay & perception differences abound)

What can I say... there isn’t. Frankly the name “implementation” throws people off... it has nothing to do with IT implementation and in the early days there was a material difference in progression (implementation did not lead to partnership)..... these have changed and since the last 3 years there is no difference between the two streams

How’s WLB in implementation vs strategy?

It depends completely on the study and the leadership. Generalists and implementation consultants can get staffed on any kind of study. There really is no difference between generalists and implementation consultants other than the background of candidates entering the recruitment pipeline

Hi everyone! Can you tell me how much you make and with how many YOE? I know I'm being severely underpaid, I just want to know the range I SHOULD be making so I can bring it up with my employer so the eventual person in this position after me doesn't have to be in the same boat. For reference: I make about $30k and I'm a (remote) graphic designer with 4 YOE and I do all the design work plus social media management for the company and outside clients. I also have multiple certifications. 🙃

I made it to final loop stage at Amazon where I have to meet 5 people. Is it seriously 5 1 hr interviews and I need prepare 20 stories? Is it a strike if I use the same project experience but different applied leadership principles ? Do I need a different project/experience for each story? Im kind of shocked people are really willing to do this many interviews.

I’ve been in a Generalist HR role for almost 3 years now. I recently moved into a new company that is worlds behind on systems and processes; everything is broken, no integration, everything is ran globally with basically no visibility/consultation locally. I was used to the capabilities of Workday as a HRIS where I discovered Data Analytics is one of my strengths. Here we use Oracle PeopleSoft and it’s ruined my experience. Is this a good enough reason for me to leave and find a different job?

Experienced hire with ~8 YOE. Applied and interviewed for SC at Deloitte but they offered C position. Nonetheless, after attempting to negotiatie offer I've been told the offer is firm and Deloitte will not budge. Any other experienced hire gone through something similar? If so, what worked? I'm currently looking at a 15% pay cut to join Uncle D. Also, any others that took the cut and would say it's worth it?
