Is an MBA worth it?
Assuming from a top University, how well regarded is a masters in business analytics from a recruiting standpoint? Considering getting one over an MBA.
Why did you choose to pursue an mba and when did you decide it was right for you? I have 1.5 years of experience and have played with the idea of studying for the GMAT but haven't been too sure. I want to aim for m7/t15 but I have a lowish gpa also (3.4 at a t20 undergrad)
I just pivoted to consulting (from audit) with plans to work in my firm’s int’l dev practice. Ik i need a masters (to work at the IMF/ WB in the future) but is there value in getting an MBA vs an MPA?
CISSP CPE question: Does anyone know if a Udemy AWS cloud practitioner certification course can be leveraged for Group A CPE credits on ISC2? Udemy provides a certificate with hour totals, but I didn’t know if ISC2 frowns upon these courses.
Is it too late to apply to MBA as a SC (apply with 5 years of experience)? Feeling REALLY time crunched to apply in 2019 but afraid I’d be too old to apply next year... please advise
What are your thoughts on the value of a Harvard Extension School degree vs. a standard online MBA from a reputable public university? I feel like the Harvard name carries a lot of value....

Hey hive mind! A headhunter reached to me about VP/SVP/Director opportunities at AlixPartners in EI or Cyber. A previous BAH executive referred him to me as a candidate. I’ve been in advisory and consulting for 10 yrs, am a Sr Mgr/Mgr type now, no MBA, have certs in cyber and management. AP seems great. I like cyber well enough but am not married to it. Two questions: 1) Thoughts on AP business and culture, and 2) Thoughts on which AP level I would be aligned to? Thank you!!

Someone in my group just jumped from Accenture as a senior analyst to Deloitte as a SC. I’m currently a C at Accenture but really tempted to make the jump and reach for SC or M. I know I’ll get paid more and do the same shit. Currently at 120k and I spoke to a SC at Deloitte that has the same position and they make 160k. I like the people here and the culture here though. But at the same time I want my next move to be out of consulting. Still worth it to make the move?
Not sure what is more embarrassing- the fact that I just passed out at the gym or that someone asked if I was pregnant when I came t. Nope, just fat.
Unpopular opinion: I don’t think Simone Biles should step down from competing because she took the spot on the team from other qualified individuals who would kill to compete. There - I said it. Before you come for me, I respect her mental health and understand why she is not competing, but at the end of the day she took a spot from someone who had been training and would kill to represent the US at the Olympics. I get the pressure is on, but step down before to let someone else take your place

Leaving Chicago at the end of this month. The job market here has been tough. Feel like every job that I apply to gets canceled or put on hold which I understand. Not going to fly back. Going to be taking the long drive back home. I am trying to do what I can to find a job here in Chicago. Anyone know of any job leads or know of companies that are hiring here in Chicago? I love this city. Would like to stay here in Chicago.
Do any other careers besides strategy consulting let you explore many industries, enabling you to gain a wide range of experience so that you can have a better idea of what you want to do in the future? I don’t particularly like consulting (at least in my current role) but gaining broad exposure is very important to me, and I can’t find any alternatives to consulting that provide similar breadth.
Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.
Got an informal offer to join a client (manufacturing company). 240k base, 60k cash bonus target (can shrink or double depending on company metrics) + 50k annual equity (3 yr rolling vesting). Director level which has just one additional layer between me and the Exec Committee. My contact already internal negotiated extra vacation and is working on my behalf for a signing bonus. Is it worth trying to negotiate base? Or is this already a strong offer?
