Went on an interview sounded as if it would be my dream job. The two hiring managers finally say” if this is something you are interested in , please call us back next week. Take some time to think about it, and circle back to us.” I sent them a thank you note tonight. I kinda want call them tomorrow and be like “let’s do this” we have already agreed on compensation haha I won’t I’ll wait until Monday I’m so relieved
@partners - I have two opportunities. One is to lead a group for a corporation (industry). The other is to join another consulting firm, doing the same work that I am doing now. While the comp will be better to stay in consulting and I do like the idea of becoming a partner one day, I am intrigued with the steady industry role... any advice?
Partners - what made you decide (and when was this) to pursue the Partner track vs taking a sweet industry exit? Do you believe that certain personalities/traits in people make them better suited to go the Partner route?
Is there any protocol if your client on an active matter (and you feel like you've done good work) posted an open in house position you're qualified for? Interested but I don't want to burn the bridge on either side if counsel's feelings aren't reciprocated.

Ever hear of a temp-perm role in industry? The company tries you out for a few months before hiring you as an official employee. They won't pay benefits until I'm an official employee but in the(cont)
Interviewing at McKinsey from a big 4 consulting firm - currently an engagement manager interviewing for an engagement manager role on the partner track - comp at big 4 is currently $165k base, what’s a reasonable amount to ask for at mck? I got an Ivy League exec mba in 2020 as well, which hasn’t yet been reflected in my big 4 comp (we mostly didn’t do raises because of covid last year). Trying to understand how much higher mck might be willing to go?
To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)
A friend of mine needs referral for JP Morgan.Is anyone willing to DM, share contact and help? His wife is expecting a baby and his current job is too toxic
Any inputs and personal experience comparing the data science practices of Deloitte, Accenture, KPMG and MBB(quantum black, Gamma in particular)?
Why is ACN strategy unnecessarily selective? They only recruit from a select few schools (no exceptions) even if at another top school. MBB/Deloitte/OW/Parthenon/LEK/ATK have much greater flexibility.
I switched two years ago from regional real estate/energy to a local small, but established residential real estate practice. While I’ve gained so much practical experience and run my own book here, I want to shift to a non-traditional remote role in real estate but keep getting turned down. I have strong credentials but I’m worried this small firm experience is killing my marketability to large companies.
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
What type of life science work do MBB/Big4/T2 specialize in? Is the day-to-day work different? What about hours?

Anyone looked at getting pregnant in a non-traditional way- How did you find a sperm bank you liked or have a convo with someone you know to be a donor?
In the past two weeks my work has picked up 10x what it was previously. Now I’m working 70+ hr weeks and often my projects are submitted nearly before deadline since I’m shuffling multiple at once. My team is understaffed and there’s no plan to hire people due to COVID-19. How do you manage to tackle the day instead of let it tackle you? I feel like no one knows how much I’m suffering since I’m WFH’ing and try to relay positive emotions over FaceTime or messages.
Unlikely there will be a lot of people that feel this way - but who else feels they were prepared for WFH and to handle these turbulent times socially and economically? And taking all this in stride.🤚🏼
