What is working at Citadel like? Talking to a recruiter for an ops role, but she mentioned that the ex-MBB team works as hard as they did in consulting (if not harder). Also see online the Citadel is called “Chicago’s revolving door”? A bad exit for someone wanting a bit more sustainability?

Have a friend that moved from BCG to Citadel. He says its longer than consulting hours without any of the benefits for largely the same pay...

I’ve heard not great things - used to know ppl who worked in HR there and even they didn’t like it. I think they pay well, but you work for it.

They’re intense but cutting edge firm. It’s an accomplishment to be there for more than 1 year. Is the Ops role technical in nature?

No, strategic.

Pays well but culture and not inclusive at all, hours are terrible and people are super competitive with each other instead of collaborative. Hard pass

A good friend of mine left for Citadel last year and loves it. Competitive but for the right person, the culture is fast-paced and you are constantly learning. Comp wise is +50% to MBB TC.

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job. I thought it went really well & she seemed very positive. She said she would follow up with the ceo (who I already met with) and let me know about next steps. I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?
