What’s is the position your looking for? I can honestly say that although OMNIA is expanding. You will be frustrated with the lack of leadership and innovation from the group. Most of the products are not matured and there is almost no investment to improve them. Some of the good things about joining OMNIA is that most of the people that work there are hard workers and passionate about their roles. If you have a remote manager you will encounter a lot of communication issues (Many amazing people left because of that). Like any other role a good manager will determine if you have a good or a bad future in BCG. My advice to you will be also to get clarity in wether or not you will have promotion opportunities.Countless good people left because they were not going to be promoted as there is no investment for the group. Finally, the interview process depends of the position. In your case is very likely that they will go over some of your accomplishments and go over make-up case study to test your tech/ problem solving capabilities. Make sure to understand what are the practice areas that BCG covers. For Omni you have 3 important groups Software, Data and Practice areas. Hoped this helps.

I expecting to receive an offer letter this afternoon and to walkthrough it with the hiring managers. I will also have a phone call with HR later this week for any additional questions. I gave my expected salary range (pretty wide and aggressive) during the interview process but haven’t talked specifics. I assume negotiations happen with HR instead of the hiring manager? Anyone have any insight? Thank you so much. First time interviewing outside of college

How do you approach asking senior managers/directors/partners about writing recommendation letters? I'm applying to law school in the fall and I need some. For what it's worth I'm a second year staff at a mid-size firm, have had good reviews the entire time/known as a high-performer in my office, and I've worked directly with everybody I'm planning on asking. However, none of them know that I'm planning on applying.

Any insight on going from Big 4 audit (S1) to boutique PE firm in an analyst role? The role supports operations of the portfolio companies (i.e. system implementations, accounting set up, etc.). Sounds like interesting work but the exit opportunities are a little unclear and not sure if it would be detrimental to veer away from an accounting-specific role.

Found out recently that I am not receiving an offer following final round interview at Big4. Recruiter I’ve been in contact with has been a great help and told me afterwards that they’d be more than happy to pass my resume over to other team leads looking to staff. Is this a common occurrence or was it a kind, common courtesy send-off to our time working through the hiring process together?
