[UK] Currently working at a boutique life sciences consultancy who mainly focus on commercial strategy. Im wanting to move to a life sciences consultancy with wider offerings/new challenges and (maybe) a bigger name but I’d like to keep a decent salary and ok WLB…. What firms should I be looking at? I’ve heard such bad things about Guidehouse and EY recently which really put me off them… I am currently on £80k base (+15-20%) with a PhD and ~4.5yoe. WFH most days but can expense trips to office

Check out Putnam

You can ask for SC and see how it goes, whatever you ask for depends on interview

Anyone here familiar with the hiring process of KPMG consulting in Van? Had a partner interview on Nov 21, thought the feedback was positive but haven't heard back yet (no rejection/offer). Is it something normal or the interview just didn't go as well as I thought?

It's an experienced hire for an SC role. I saw the posting is still open atm, and my guess is that the recruiting team is comparing candidates since competition is higher due to recent layoffs.

Thanks in advance!

Have an offer to join LEK as a Manager, lateral move from current manager role. Would love to know whether you would make the move in this situation and the drivers.

Specific details:
- ZS: WLB manageable, 55 h a week, strong Principal advocates, kind clients, lower TC, autonomy to manage own team and portfolio of work, perhaps too much responsibility for the TC IMO
- LEK: TC 50-70% higher, would need to learn new types of work that’s more strategic, WLB sounds less flexible, hours at 60h-70h
