Is it mandatory to go the consulting route post MBA? Why not just go straight to industry and plan to get promoted? Instead of planning on 2 yrs as senior associate and 1 yr as manager before exit.

Q’s for hiring partners and recruiters - you know that most associates quit their managing attorneys and not the firm/case. I’m in that boat. What do I say to a prospective employer about the situation of why I want to jump ship? Very brief background - I’m a senior associate who has been on one complex commercial litigation case for over a year. Over time, the relationships between attorneys on the case have deteriorated to the point that it is affecting my productivity/work. I want out.

I am a 3rd year senior associate in alternative investment tax and up for manager promotion this year. I really dislike the long hours of this job and seeking to make a move. Although I’m not sure i necessarily want to stay in tax. I have a young toddler at home and want to find a job i like, makes decent money, and has decent hours so i can spend more time with family. Has anyone been in a similar position and made a move? Can you please share your experience? Thanks!

I joined consulting out of undergrad, and I hope to stay 1-2 years after I make Senior Associate. I think I then want to move to a manager role in industry, but I’m having trouble understanding how an MBA fits into this. Some questions: 1. Will I first need to get an MBA after consulting/before industry? 2. If I don’t have an MBA when I leave consulting, will industry firms hire me and also give me MBA sponsorship? or is that rare

So I dated this guy and ended up being fwb for a while. We also became friends and travelled together. At some point, I found myself not attracted to him physically anymore. He kept being flirty sometimes in text. For example, he would mention how much he loved my body and how he wanted to sleep with me in trips etc. I didn’t feel comfortable for such comments anymore so I told him that. He said he was just joking and didn’t take that seriously and kept making such jokes/comments. (see next)
