Hot job market for exits + people are getting crushed by all the increased selling since Covid started

Losing all the fun such as going out for dinners , travelling (for those who enjoyed it), team time , etc… while the world load gets worst . I hated wfh at McKinsey

Also a sense things will continue to get worse with no remedy in sight. Perceptions of poor coaching/training and a deteriorating talent pool for new hires mean the workload will only get more unsustainable.

It's really industry-wide. Companies are over-selling, not giving us the perks that came with the job, and expecting more out of us than every before.

Is this common across all MBBs? I’ve seen BCG particularly vocal about this on FB so I’m wondering if there are variations across firms or if I’m just over indexing on this.

Great exits.

Echo all of the above. Plus, even our second year associates are getting incredible exit opportunities that definitely I would not have thought possible 2 years ago at their level

Did anyone make a transition from being an MBB data scientist to a FAANG data scientist? 1. How did you differentiate your value proposition?

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
