You might be overthinking this. Take them to lunch, and don’t mention that they don’t drink. If they’re a senior client, they are likely familiar with being at events where alcohol is served and they choose not to drink. Maybe don’t meet up at a bar. 10-20 is a huge party though and you’ll likely have an easier time booking a private room at a restaurant

Hi fishes.. Advice required since I am confused. Profile - MBA from one of the IIMs, Deloitte S&O, total and post mba experience = 2 I am getting an industry offer for 34 LPA which I feel is huge considering my experience and role also seems good. My only confusion is that I feel if I stay in Deloitte for 1-2 more years, I might be able to switch to MBB or Kearney. I always wanted to try the client site lifestyle and might get better exit opportunities after that. What should I do? Thank you.

Hey all, I’ve recently joined EY consulting from another Big 4 and have noticed there’s no discipline (at least in my team) around codes and charging time. People either charge a standard 7 hrs or some will charge time spent on internal activities to their client code. I was told that “the last person to charge their actual hours worked was promptly booted off the project”. Just wondering: 1) Is this a general cultural point accross all Consulting teams? Will challengin this get me in trouble?

A client developer group just told me they reached terms to “buy equity in a lease.” From what they’ve told me, if we were setting this up fresh, I’d do a new LLC and easily handle capital contributions, buy-sell, etc. in the new LLC agreement. However, here the partner had a long-term lease on the underlying RE that our group wants to develop as a concept. Lease assignment to new LLC is dicey, but I’m thinking maybe we set up a Mgmt services company to contract w/ the partner-tenant entity?

Fishes, I’m one step closer to securing an exit and would like to thank you all for the support.

What’s the typical TC bump MBB consultants are able to get when moving to FAANG StratOps / BizOps roles? 2. Does the base comp increase, remain constant, or decrease? TIA, as always!
