Started a new remote entry level job with very minimal training. I am fresh out of school and thinking what is the best way for me to learn my role, duties, and tasks with no training and being remote. How will I succeed if in order to do the job I need to be trained.

I think being the new person on a team has its struggles but definitely has its advantages given new to the group and job. If possible, try to figure out who are your direct peers on the team and then who are above you and your peers. If you’re backfilling some responsibilities from another person on the team at the moment or know who was the previous new person on the team, send an email for a quick chat and reach out to ask the nature of duties you’re doing now, about their experiences so far, what they have done to pick up speed, recommendations/suggestions to get ahead and prepare, and then hopefully by then you’ve figured out the middle management and can send one off meeting planners as well if they’re open to it. Try to get input from the peers you’ve already spoken with to see if they have done something like that or if they know the middle management people are very open to it.

Anyone have info on MBB/Strategy& supply chain consulting? Group size, actively hiring, common backgrounds (MBA/certifications required/helpful?), project types, & interview prep tips?

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!

Is it a bad look as a senior associate (on the path to manager within a year) to be driving an expensive car like a C7 or C8 corvette that is $70k+? I don’t think it is and here’s my rationale. I’m making over 6 figures, maxing out my 401k and IRA accounts with extra $ going to a brokerage account, I have a 3BR 1300 sq foot home with finished basement and garage for $170k. My two loans are only $240k combined. Heck most people spend more on a house alone. Work remote so vette isn’t daily driver.

Ever since I became a mid-level I feel like this job has become so lonely. I’m running my own deals - which I actually enjoy - but I don’t have any juniors so usually I’m also doing 100% of the work. Since I’m handling everything, I only hear from my partners if I ask a question or if I’ve done something wrong. Still being WFH doesn’t help…but I feel so alone day-to-day. Do any other mid-levels feel similarly? Or is this just an issue with my group?

I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented.
