Yes. It’ll be easier to hear of new roles. And hopefully they hire internally first.

Yes because you’ll make connections.

I got an offer from ACN and wanted to negotiate. It’s 130k, but heard a data science consultant role in NYC for a PhD grad can go up to 160k-170k.

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?

Something isn’t quite adding up for me, though I haven’t been in consulting long so it may be my ignorance.

What am I missing?
