At Deloitte? Checked shirt is a must. 😅

If in doubt, business casual unless your client facing. Remember you've a personal brand to build and how you present will impact that branding. Dress down to that of the team once you've started to get your brand established.

Sure, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks 😊

I default business casual as thats how the office was pre covid. On client site your job is to blend in. If the client is in jeans, dont be in a suit and vice versa.

Cool, thanks 😊

Mostly Harvard t-shirts. JK, I was in the London office and saw 3 people in shorts and 1 in sweat pants last week (had a heat wave, but still).

NYC is more formal than other offices. I would wear business casual (but have a blazer (doesn’t have to be suit) just in case) and see how your team & M/SM dress and emulate thay

like

Btw what does business casual entail? Jeans, polo t-shirt and blazer? Will these do?

Based on the role and office. Where are you joining and what will you do?

@D1, seriously? Such a trivial topic. I understand if it’s for a client but at the office 🤦‍♂️

You mean there’s no dress code in West coast offices?

“Smart casual”. But it’s pretty lax. I remember I wore khakis my first day and felt pretty over dressed with the whole office in jeans

Good to know!

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?
