What was the first thing you did once you become partner? I am assuming heavy pressure on selling more than what you were selling before?

Took a large loan to buy in!

Typically your firm firm lends you the capital at a very low rate, so it’s not really a big risk vs return decision.

The buy-ins vary by firm. At mine it is 30% of your earnings which you have to maintain throughout your career since your earnings change.

I was selling partner level targets or more as an associate partner before my partner appointment. So there really wasn’t much pressure on sales . But I did learn very quickly that I have no more ability to bitch and moan about things I didn’t like - now I was part of “them”. That took some time to sink in :)

Hey Fishes,

Help me make a choice between the two.
1. PwC Management Consulting: 24 Fixed, offer letter doesn't mention the variable %, so not sure what would be the total Fixed + Variable
2. ZS Associates: 25 Fixed, 10% Variable ( Avg figure)

Not really sure about the career exposure both the firm can give and the career progression to expect.

Wardrobe Advise Needed!

I’m new to the consulting world coming from tech as direct admit PPMD. Female, mostly work from home, although I plan to go into the office 1-2x per week plus coffee/drink networking with colleagues and clients. Tech is casual and I typically wear jeans with a nice top, sometimes blazer, and boots/heels. Based on what I’ve seen in Fishbowl (taking this all with a grain of salt) I may need to step it up. Thoughts? Recommendations?
