Hi! Sitting on offers from Harvard and Cambridge for PhD. I was hired out of undergrad into Strategy, worked two years. Trying to decide if I want to 100% pivot to academia...any advice/suggestions?

Hi everyone - MD Consultant here. Would love to network with other consultants in this group and learn why you decided to come into Consulting. Thank you.

Any advice on how to push through the last step of the dissertation? I work full time and only have that left for my PHD, but it has been very challenging to make real progress.

I’m starting as a Manager at one of the big 4 in 3 weeks. I left my tenure track job 4 yrs ago so I’m accustomed to non-academic work but still intimidated. Advice? Will I succeed this first year?

Currently an MBA student at M7, and already have a PhD in ChemEng. No prior consulting background. What would be good firms to target and any preferred ones for good work life balance?

Currently a M7 PhD student. Former Big 4 consultant and veteran. Want to go back into consulting (preferably strategy). I have an Ivy Master’s. Would a MBA be silly if this is my goal?

Any other MDs here? Are you preparing for industry exits or the long haul in consulting? I genuinely love this industry so far an am curious how much of my background will actually be useful after SA.

What does the recruitment process look like for PhD candidates for the Big 4 and tier 2 firms? I know MBB recruits PhDs, but am unclear about the rest.

Have a friend who is at an engineering PhD program. I'm trying to help shape her resume, but would love a second look from those that understand the differences in grad school recruiting.

I have a PhD, but damn does an MBA not seem fun and useful for networking. Has anyone gone after PhD and a few years of consulting?

So who is thinking about leaving/going back to (academia/medicine/law) after 2 years are up? Not sure I want the PL job even though I think I could make a great manager (elsewhere)
