Everything you love about your current firm will be destroyed in the acquisition. Your firm was bought for something you had - access to a key client, access to IP, access to key personnel. The valuable things from your firm will be harvested and the rest hollowed out. Source: former M&A consultant

ATCS Inc. based in Montvale accquired by Nagarro SE based in Munich, Germany as far as I know. Was looking anyways for an opportunity in a bigger company but merger were always tricky in the past

There’s an entire profession focused on post merger integrations (PMI), including business processes (BPSI) and employee experience. It can be fine but most of the time the company/deal leadership is so short term focused (synergies) that the PMI gets F’d. Recommend following IBM1’s advice and get out.

26M, making $150k base at a healthcare startup doing strategy. Also about to finish a part time masters (non-MBA), and planning to find new roles after that. I took the gmat back in 2017 (710) and realize that if I don’t apply this year for an MBA I’d have to retake the test. Do you think an MBA would be helpful to advance my career at this point assuming I stay the course in healthcare? Is an executive mba in a few years a better move? Is a 710 good enough to apply to top 10 schools? TIA!

@ BCGers & Bainies - Making a comparison between BCG and Bain offers.
