SC1 knows better but from friend that works there, agrees that it's really great work, really good pay, but a grind. In terms of day-to-day, Deeper financial analyses than we'd do

Culture is very grinding, very very lean internally, and incredibly not diverse. However, the work is interesting. But bankruptcies always follow the same pattern, so it becomes repetitive. I was at Alvarez & Marsal and knew many at Alix.

They make their money off recovery and transformation work. I've seen a lot of successful people go there and come out

Very successful firm/people. On par with Alvarez

BCG is also currently building out a restructuring practice just FYI if that's what you're looking for. Sure McK may have won that but I'm pretty sure Alix won the VMware / Dell PMI no?

Mck RTS practice is already a monstrosity...

I live in Texas and just joined a new remote team compromised of folks from NYC and SF where lockdowns are still in effect. They are big on culture, so we round robin what our weekend plans are and what we do to stay sane. I’m used to oversharing and being candid, but since everything is open here, I feel I will come off as reckless or tone deaf. If I lie, I feel like I’ll come off as shady or inauthentic. Is there a good way to approach this?

Are there any disadvantages for buying a house for a short term?
