Director: "I want you to play the director role for today. Should be fun. What do you think?" Me: "sure" 🤓🔫
I’m a tech consultant working in the SAP practice. I’m a second year associate. I have decided that I don’t like the culture of consulting - work more hours, always add more work and responsibility to your plate, etc. I would like to work a job that is more 9-5 that doesn’t expect you to work in so many different things at once. What industry roles should I be applying to? Is leaving after 1.5 years too soon?
Just got invited to take the internal revenue agent assessment for an IRS revenue agent position I applied for, does anyone have any insight as to what to expect?

What’s the usual compensation for an Associate at BCG? Currently work at a Big 4 (1.5 years of experience) and am in the interview process
Does it look bad if you exit right after a promotion? Waiting to hear, but I think I’m moving on whatever the outcome.
I’m a new associate at BCG - started two weeks ago and I have no how idea if im doing well or not. I did a first informal feedback session last week and they told me I need to improve on slide making. Is this normal? I have a 6 months probation and I want to make sure I’m in a good position to pass. Am I being too nervous too soon?
Looking for good behavioral and case interview prep resources. All suggestions and recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
Great I had a panic attack during an interview. At least it was over the phone and I could fake a cough to give me time to recover. Wtf universe.
In house interviews: I finished a final round of interviews and was expecting a final decision after the interviews. Rather than yes or no, the recruiter told me that the feedback is positive but they need to interview one more candidate to compare since I am the first one interviewed. And they wanted to add one more meeting with their new team member starting next week. Is this common and what’s the best way to deal with this unexpected message? Thanks!
I have an incoming interview for a bizops role and they will test sql, what should I prepare? I only know very basic sql and they will have a sql case study. Does anyone have an example or some material that I can study for a few days?
Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!

I took the bar July 2021 and had a screening interview with Fragomen about 2 weeks ago. They seemed interested and open to interviewing as a contract to hire attorney. The individual mentioned to keep them updated on my bad results. I was just wondering if anyone’s been in a similar situation and if any offers came about from such a situation? - from a bar applicant eagerly awaiting results
Leaving VC in SF after 4 years, spent 2 years in IBD. Got industry offer for Director level role in strategy / Corp dev M&A at a late stage pre-IPO unicorn (Series D+) at a MCOL city. 200 base, 20% bonus, additional 40k/yr options. So $280K range all in starting. I’m currently making $250K in VC here in Bay Area. Job is in a MCOL T2 city (Boston/Dallas/Austin/Chicago) so I won’t be living in expensive Bay Area. Evaluate my offer please!
I am about to refer my friend for the Accenture tech analyst position. Her resume is two pages. Should it be one page?
Why might an interviewer reach out before the interview to prep? First time this has happened to me and confused about what to expect.
Layoffs and furloughs thread. What firms are cutting and furloughing? Across all industries.
Which firms are considered top tier in organizational efficiency/effectiveness type work? Other than the obvious MBB. Thanks!
Just need to vent: my friend refuses to bring up the topic of covid and how it will likely effect her wedding. She’s just moving forward like we aren’t in a pandemic and it’s becoming exhausting trying to be supportive and excited for her when it feels like she’s living in a fantasy world. She just had us purchase bridesmaids dresses and I can’t help but feel like it was a complete waste of a few hundred dollars. I feel bad for having these thoughts but I’m over it.
Do you also hate "sandwich feedback" (praise, criticism, praise)? I know it's part of western culture. But clear and direct feedback should be enough. Working 12 hours a day, no one should have to waste time on this.
I got offer from deloitte for 13.5 fixed with 10%vp and EY for 14.5 fixed plus 5%vp, publicis sapient for 17 fixed with permanant work from home and no vp. Which one is good? I have 5 years of experience
Rant: apply for job online. Job emails me with 7 questions as "next steps", one of which is salary. I email back. They email back (at 9pm mind you) "we can't meet your salary expectations"...
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Anyone else walk out of work half the time thinking, I could see myself being a partner one day, but then the other half of the time you walk out thinking I wonder if the UPS are hiring?

does anybody know how to be an expatriate in big4? My understanding is you will still get paid based on your home office location(e.g. US) but being stationed abroad.
For those applied R1 (Sept + Oct time), when did you start using the MBA consultant service and for which services? State the consultant name and how much you paid as well if possible.
Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?

Hi Team, I will be having my panel presentation next week. Any tips? Also the position is for Salesforce.org. Is there much difference and pros/cos you can share? (Eg. lower salary, different benefits,culture….)
Anyone else nervous about the future and not being able to retire at a reasonable age. How do you determine how much you need for retirement? Late 30s family inc. is $200k planning on kids as well
2yrs of post-undergrad experience at D and have offers from two FAANG companies. Worth it to stick it out for a couple more years to open up more offers down the road, or should I get out while I can?
