Consulting

Thoughts on Point B consulting from Big 4? Are comp levels similar? What’s different about them?

I interviewed with them a very long time ago and did not get to an offer, but that was probably because I already made it clear I did not like their comp structure for my situation. Comp was likely to be lower, plus you only got paid for billable hours. There was some kind of initial salary guarantee as you first started, but you were expected to get and stay billable and then were only paid for client billable hours. It was also pretty clear that advancement opportunities were limited, you would have a pretty hard time making their equivalent of partner. You would most likely be on solo or very small teams at a client and be expected to lead any kind of project. This was more than a decade ago, so things may have changed. I think it’s really designed for people who want to leave behind the Big 4 / road warrior lifestyle and work part time, but still make a decent hourly rate and do somewhat similar types of work, such as someone who had one or more kids and wanted to only work 2-3 days a week.

It has changed a bit as I interviewed last year. More larger teams and consulting work, I think they still offer a part time but less and less. They seemed to me to definitely prioritize work/life. They seem to have just made an acquisition and also focusing on their VC and real estate businesses combined with consulting. Seemed an interesting place but I got a great internal promotion to Assoc partner.
