I would almost never recommend anything over BCG, but in this case take EYP (assuming you’re getting MBB equivalent pay). Platinion isn’t BCG. It pays less and the folks there are made to feel like second class citizens.

It’s literally a separate legal entity

EY Parthenon Strategy? If so, then do that if you want PE

like

EYP over Platinion if you are looking for greater variability in experience, which I would recommend this early in the career

Yea would say so too - there are options for rotational programs (maybe Platinon) has them too so not too hard to get experience outside of Deal Tech/SSG if that’s what you want. SSG is even more niche, but great skill set to learn especially if you are more CTO minded.

Which roles are you comparing? Depends. And what do you mean when you say “tech strategy?”

What group within EYP ?

Software Strategy Group

Would you take the following offer: Base - ~$180K; Bonus - ~$30K; RSU - ~$15k; Total Comp - ~$225K; F500 firm, not tech, mid-west, individual contributor role with potential for senior roles in 2 years. Good WLB, but not the most interesting industry. Currently working at a T2 Strategy Consulting firm, 2.5 years out of a T10 MBA. $200K all in. 7 YoE. Happy with consulting so far and performing well, but would like better WLB. How much better are tech exit ops given SF cost of living?

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.

Serious question. What makes a good copywriter? What skills would you expect? Aside from a command of language. I’m trying to understand if my expectations in hiring for my team are unrealistic.

A&M fishes do you feel pressure while taking vacations as your comp is tied to billable hours? Also what’s the policy on remote work, can people work from another country (eg. Canada or Europe ) for a few days if they are supporting during US work hours. Big 4 is strict about international work location, so just curious.
