Hi fishes,
I got interviewed for
CGI , CGI Communications Inc, 2nd February- technical round and 7th February- Managerial round. Till now, I didn't get any update from HR team. I tried calling Hr and dropped mails about the status. But she is not picking calls or replying to my mails. I tried calling the the person who setup L1 interview, she told I was not selected. What should I consider now, is my candidature on hold or should I think I got Rejected without any confirmation from HR team.

Need advice! Just got a Job offer for VP marketing at an FI. Currently at a co at $151k with 15% bonus and actually want to keep my job. Offer is 175k (7% bonus) with 500/mo car reimbursement and 10k additional per year. Rest of the benefits are comparable. Big difference is the untaxed car/retirement extras.

How is BCG and Bain with international mobility / transfers ?

I’m with McKinsey and it happens quite a bit , some geographies with varying level of competition between geographies (e.g., hard to get into London / NYC, harder to go from India to US versus other way around)

Thoughts on the new lions?


So we boycott clients, vendors and agencies that had high ranking employees attend the coup right? Like no brainer, hands in, don’t give them money, right?


How do you all handle "status-driven" exec culture, both agency and clients? Like the kind that judges you based on what you wear, drive, etc? Do you play in to it for the sake of relationship?
