So the Marines and Army aren't highly sophisticated and skilled?🤔

The military instills accountability and responsibility. It also develops perspective and stress management because if you are warm, dry and no one is shooting at you, you are probably not having too bad a day. After getting shot at, not much in consulting will likely stress you out to the point you lose your cool.

Also no one really cares whose fault it is in the fog of battle, they focus on mission.

On the ground, the senior manager is in charge and if you aren't overseeing your team, then you aren't doing your job. The manager may have screwed up but this doesn't happen overnight.

I come from a military heavy family so I can appreciate what it instills. Thanks for your service D1

Go skin your manager OP. It's nice and late, send him/her a passive aggressive email. Set up a call before noon. Drag your new manager through the mud on a call full of partners. They'll take it today. Then they'll leave for greener pastures as soon as possible. This person will watch for you. Someday, when things have turned against you, you'll reach out to the crowd for help. That manager will not be there for you. If that manager was me, they would quietly sabotage you in every way they could. Just because they could. Never try to sell work to a company in which that manager is a decision maker. Millennials hold quiet grudges.

Yeah, because my millennial view of leadership was formed by my weak ass enlistment in the US Marines immediately after the towers fell, finally concluding with my weak ass position as leading 54 men in women in combat operations as a US Army officer.

Well, I'd imagine the firm also needs to get its effin act together if such issues can't be remediated. Secondly, the manager needs more than a slap on the wrist.

As a veteran myself, I grow tired of seeing threads that become about service status. We vets are proud of what we did (rightfully so) but this is a different gig now. So let's be consultants first and vets underneath. Not the other way around. With that said, don't shit on vets that have transitioned to consulting either. A lot of us work hard, work smart, and want to take the next step in our life and be seen as a professional (not in a uniform). Yes, some don't make it but a lot of young college hires don't make it as well.. Basically, judge the person by performance not by veteran status or generational status.

Cheers

I recognize this is a touchy subject and I’m prepared to be wrong, but for MBA internships at MBB, I’ve noticed (anecdotally) that most of the folks who got offers from my M7 school fall into one of the “URM” demographics.
