Hey all, just wondering if anyone here has been through the referral process with McKinsey? An associate partner referred me two weeks ago and I haven't heard back yet. Trying to align McKinsey with my other interviews so hoping people here can give me a better idea. Also spoke with a senior partner a few days ago who said timeline shouldn't be an issue (after I explained everything) , but not sure if they actually looked into it or not.
Went through the first round interview at EY w 2 managers, with HR saying that I'll be due for the next round with Partner or Associate Partner soon (this was mid December 2020) - just got updated that they have chosen to proceed with another candidate 😭😔 Really wanted this role to pan out - numb doesn't come close to how I feel right now

If you interview with OW or Deloitte for a senior position, let’s say Sr Manager / Principal or Associate Partner, what does that process look like? Do you still have to go through the case grind or is it more about your client and team leadership and biz dev experience?

How soon does EY P recruiter tell you if you are rejected/accepted?? Have been interviewing with them for a month now.

How long on avg. does it take for a consulting firm to get back to you after your final interview?
My boss has zero leverage in the company, and therefore creative always goes to shit because someone in another department thinks they're far better placed to make creative calls, and my boss can't do anything about it to defend the work. It's taking a toll on the work, team's mental health, and overall morale. The company values are no longer aligned to my own, and it's no longer the job I was sold in on during the interview process. What do I do?
Any insight into what the “skills” interview consists of at Accenture Tech Strategy? Specifically for the Accenture Tech Strat & Advisory offering. Not sure what types of skill questions will be asked since this isn’t a technical implementation role. TIA!

Has anyone regretted getting a T10 MBA FT MBA? I already make 100k but am unhappy with my current job but the 200k cost seems scary. I’m thinking it’s still worth it because I’ve heard nobody regrets working 2 years less when they are older. Just wanted to get people’s thoughts
Does anyone know if Perkins Coie, K&L, or Faegre Drinker have matched market salaries yet?
I was working in Excel with a client and they asked me how I inserted a comment using a shortcut. I couldn’t immediately explain because I just did it unconsciously. I spend too much time in excel.

Black girl here in Big Law. I scheduled a hair appointment for long feed-in braids next week and literally just got an email about a social hour my firm is doing the following day. This likely isn’t a style I would get if we weren’t WFH, and obviously isn’t something I think I would get fired for... but I still have anxiety around showing up with the hairstyle. Thoughts?

First flight as a Delta Diamond and I have travel in the middle seat. I was told things will be different.

Is your organization planning to require employees be vaccinated? I understand why management wants this but concerned about losing good employees because they don’t believe in vaccination or are wanting to wait until more people have been vaccinated to see if there are issues with it. I’m also concerned with moral if we require this. Employees may get it to keep there job but hold on to some bitterness or develop anxiety over it. Am I being too soft or over analyzing?
Recently saw a post where someone recommended Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul and as a teenager, I used to love to read those books. Any recommendations for adult versions of that? I’m a sucker for romantic stories, life stories, etc.
My little calculator feature on my 401k dashboard told me today I need to be saving 3x my current contribution to meet the "double your salary by 35" quota they tout. I just got this salary a year ago and would be in track with my old salary...but can't afford to put that kind of money into it right now to catch up. How does this whole benchmarking thing work if your salary keeps increasing and then you have even more catching up to do? 32 YO and still under $100k in retirement help!

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
