I have interviewed here and also have a friend at the director level there. It is heavily a sales position, its not cold calling but more so warm leads. If you want a call center type of sales job I would say go for it but it is definitely a grind. I am not so certain of the exit ops. It is rapidly growing so it's possible to get good promotions. I know people leave after 2~ years. I can try to get more information if you have specific questions about it.

I would imagine burnout. LinkedIn insights says 1.5 years for median tenure. I'm making a guess here but I'm lead to believe they try to lure you into the role by giving you this career path that sounds great but in reality you just end up with the same work just with people under you.

Recruited and was offered an associate position. Also attended their leadership program. Pay is competitive but not to banking/finance. Offer was 85k pro-rated. The role is more headhunting/warm leads like the user above mentioned. You are assigned to a team and you work to connect firms that are looking for highly individualized and skilled people. Its nothing to do with consulting but is a cool and expanding company.

Its just a different type of flavor in a complicated job market. If its your only offer its definitely not the end of the world but you'll have to get an MBA or be really lucky to lateral to anything in front office finance. 

Best of luck.

I wouldn't call this consulting in the traditional sense, where you're working with management to make business decisions or improve operations. When I was at Bain, we used Alphasights to source experts to call for our due diligence projects--that's it. GLG, Alphasights, Thirdbridge, Tegus, etc. are all in this same bucket to me. I wouldn't call them consultants even though they might call themselves consultants, we called them expert networks and expert headhunters.

I wouldn't expect HSW or even M7 from this company. I could be completely wrong, but I just wouldn't expect it.

Remember, always be kind-hearted.

Agree with the top half 100% but fwiw there's usually 1-2 GLG people who place at my M7 every year

Good to hear, I didn't know that. Congrats to those 1-2 GLG people!

For everyone in the future that would like info before this wanker deleted everything, he was asking about Alphasights in terms of career, employability, business school, how it works in consulting, etc. 

Remember, always be kind-hearted.
