Starting at Strategy& London in September and WSO is scaring me off
I have an offer from Strategy& London office after my Masters, starting in September for their M&A practice and after reading all that people write on here I am absolutely terrified and I am questioning my life choice. I had no MBB interviews and this was seemingly the better package as M&A and growth projects appear to promise great exposure and turnaround without travel. The people seemed great and all the associates I talked too said that it is around 55 hours a week and no weekends ever.
Not sure this applies to the London office alone but their growth figure from last year was incredible and they are sold out constantly.
My ultimate goal is a strategy role in a tech firm or MBB and then exit in industry.
How decent would my exit ops be? Can I realistically get an MBB move later on??
I need some comfort people :(
