Advice for Analyst interviewing at BCG? I’m Canadian and applied to US location.

Main reasons I want to leave:
-I’m on implementation and like strategy more (I’ve enjoyed the bd work)
-Personal life choice (I want to work outside of my hometown)
-Want to feel challenged
-Planning to coffee chat w BCG employees to further develop answer

Are these good enough reasons (albeit phrased differently) as why are you leaving Accenture?

I have a low gpa and I’m 8 months out of undergrad. I’m feeling quite insufficient compared to the other competitors

Am I an idiot for considering quitting public accounting without a job lined up? I’ve dreamed about doing it for several years. Continue pushing my burnout and I’ll get a good month followed by several bad month…about two days after being on vacation I go back to being myself tho. Overall thinking about taking the summer off and figuring out what I want in life because this isn’t it.

I did a sono before trying to start IUI to check that tubes are open. Doctor said that tubes are fine but I have a couple small uterine polyps. Since I never tried to get pregnant she suggested trying IUI to see and if it doesn’t work to get polyps taken out. But I read it can cause miscarriage too so a bit nervous. Has anyone gotten pregnant successfully with small polyps?


Managers: how are you keeping tabs on your people in this wfh life we’re living? The stress and general awfulness of the world the past few weeks seem to be hitting my team hard and it’s difficult to pick up on those emotions when you aren’t physically see people outside of meeting settings. Know we’re all over forced zoom happy hours…so what else is working to keep your humans connected?

I recently cancelled a trip in the AA app and they refunded me in the form of a flight voucher. I don’t fly AA often and don’t really want the value of the ticket locked up with AA that I may not use for a while. Is there anyway to get that refunded back to either my card, or my bank directly? Some ideas I’ve come up with besides calling and asking, is to book a flight that is more then the voucher and then trying to refund all back to my card, but I don’t know if that will work....


Can I get your perspective if it is too early for me to jump? Started with two summer internships at the same company. Then I did an 8 month internship, followed by 1 year full time at PwC. Then I moved to KPMG FDD, have been here for 1.5 years. High rating yet I didn’t make senior this year so I am looking at my options, particularly since FDD has been incredibly busy.


Pulled the trigger on a watch I’ve been eyeing for a year. I think it’s a great addition to the collection just in time for summer! This is the Aqua Terra Ryder Cup edition. The 8900 movement clocked in at -1 s/d at the AD with a 28800 bph and 60 hour reserve. Downside is no quick date set, but the movement has a function to jump hours while seconds and minute hand run uninterrupted, similar to a GMT. This becomes the quickest way to set the date. The date also flips back to the previous day!

Thoughts on Imaginary Forces?


Anyone ever experience a firm significantly misrepresenting a position they hired you for? I recently took a position with a firm to practice a specific type of litigation. Turns out the firm only has about 5 cases in that field and they are all already staffed up. Now I’m stuck at a firm I barely like doing work that’s completely irrelevant to my experience and career goals, and I feel like leaving within a year is a bad look resume wise
