What does Bain/BCG mean? As I recall, from many years ago, Bain cases had lots of charts and things but not BCG.

“Other things you’ve read on here?” This has been asked and answered a dozen times lol

Be prepared for a more conversational case. I don’t think any of mine had charts or exhibits. The partner/director creates their own case and so will probably be related to their work

Thanks appreciate it S3

Would use the classic case interview books. Also will be industry specific for the role you’re applying for

Everyone writes their own case.

This is the correct answer. Also, everyone has 1 case lol. Not like we switch it up.

In a predicament need some thoughts: I’m getting offered a new role (not a promotion, just a new role within my project) that has more lead level responsibilities. It seems if I take this role and do well at it, I could potentially get promoted mid year or end year. Now, this is coming at an interesting time when I was already looking to transition to a new company - an immediate transition will get me a quicker salary bump that I would otherwise have to wait a bit to get at my current company
