Exit ops - S& Comp and impact of work - Alix

110% Alix for this group. AP invented Private Equity Ops consulting and have a way better culture than this S& Vertical. If you were in another vertical at S& my advise might change.

Alix… not even a fair comparison

Is it really that clear cut?

If you care about comp and a firm with very few assholes, go with Alix. If you care about exit options in tech at all, go with S&. Alix is not well known at all outside of former clients, PE, and the restructuring world.

Alix Partners!

Hard to say but have seen several clients ditch AP for S&

Several you say 🧐

Definitely AlixPartners for PE. For Tech, we're growing our Digital practice like crazy. So the work and career progression here will be better, but S& will probably have better exit opps as of today.

Have been looking at working for foundations on the banking side post grad (ie, GS, BOA, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley,etc.) or large family foundations that work on grants, community development and social impact post-MBA.

I was considering going an MBA + MPP because those really pair well with that kind of role.

Hey guys - I work at FAANG right now, and planned on an mba in the next 2-3 years. Have an opportunity with McKinsey as a consultant. Always wanted to work there, but only for a short stint - feel like it will 1) boost my overall profile for an mba application 2) give me the experience I’m looking for before mba because post mba I’d like to focus on my own venture. Also folks at McKinsey - would love to hear what conditions there are for getting an mba sponsored at the firm. Thanks!

Salary research: Hey fellow designers, I recently saw a tweet that the new hourly rate for designers in US is $200-250hr(screenshot). And more people seem to confirm that: https://twitter.com/francois_bach/status/1399063307936354309?s=21 I think the lack of awareness of how much our peer designers make causes huge gap differences in what we’re paid. I work full time for a sorta established tech startup in NYC with 100+ employees. As a sr product designer I made $85k/year (no other monetary bonus) In my new role I make $127k/year (about $67/hr). Hbu?

My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company. When I joined there were 8 PMs. Today, 6 of those have quit and 3 of those are in the past 3 weeks. We’ve hired 3 more since I joined. I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?
