Starting full-time @ MBB this month. I’m really interested in recruiting growth equity (GE) at some point. I’m pretty familiar with PE recruiting but not sure how growth differs. Anyone have perspective on any of the following: 1- Does ￼GE recruit on cycles? If so what is the typical timing? 2-￼ Are modeling tests standard as part of the interview process? 3- How are consultants perceived in the industry? 4- Do large GE firms utilize headhunters?￼￼￼ 5- Do large GE firms have operating roles?

Planning for a family (of 4) trip to either Greece or Portugal in late fall this year. Flight costs are almost same. Any pointers as to which one would provide biggest bang for the buck? We're mostly laid back, don't care for top end luxury, not great hikers. Just looking a relaxing vacation.
Aside all the usual bumfuckery of this Trump ‘interview’, I’m wondering what the hell happened to Maria Bartiromo? I remember her as a non-political, competent financial journalist and reader of the markets on Fox Business. Now she is a propagandist of the Trump campaign. I wonder if she’s disappointed in herself?
Starting at Accenture strategy this week ( manager level). Start date was delayed 4 weeks due to the onboarding team being busy. I have a vacation from 8/10-8/18 which was booked months ago. How do I best handle this to avoid starting off on the wrong foot with my new group?

I hate my job so much. It’s like when I’m there I feel like I’m wasting my time like I’m losing money being there. It’s an operations job and quite honestly stayed too long. There are processes where there are 20 things to do just to send the P&L out. It’s such a relic. I am 36 and freaking out because I want to do something new. I’m working 60 hour work weeks because people keep quitting. I’m over it. I’ve been interviewing but just in that waiting period to see what happens. Any advice?

I am 30 and just got promoted to Senior manager. I think I am doing well but I feel I am driven more by pessimism, imposter syndrome, and fear of getting fired as opposed to a positive mindset and the desire to thrive in my career. I feel like I am suffering from some sort of a mental issue but wanted to throw it out here and get some advice to deal with this from the fishbowl fam as opposed to going to therapy. Thanks in advance for your responses!
Hey fishes! Is it okay to switch from KPMG to GT for the same position if the pay is 30% higher. I'm seeing KPMG is lame on matching industry standard for CTC ranges for various positions! Currently at ACon2 and will get Con1 if I switch! Please guide.
