Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Very weird watching a presidential candidate explain/defend management consulting in a NYT interview. Even some questions about federal contractors! Maybe people will stop asking what my job “means”
WHY do big tech companies make the candidates write algorithms during interviews? I am a senior software engineer and I can say with surety that SSE rarely write algorithms unless you are working on building something totally unique (like a new search engine).
1.5 years experience, 4 WD projects and 3 certifications. Currently interviewing with a boutique firm. Ideas on salary expectations?
Anyone in govt services at MBB willing to chat? Feeling like my experience in GPS/my specific area of expertise is putting me in a niche
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Anyone exited to AbbVie? Saw a position of interest but curious about culture and WLB, and how much a referral helps vs. cold applying.
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
3 years ago, I interviewed someone who didn’t get the job. They emailed me weeks after, and asked, “I don’t care if I don’t get the job, I just want to be friends.” I never responded. Still feel bad
If you had your pick of MBB, which would you join? Running a very informal poll - like the comment of the corresponding firm below McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Anyone interviewed for the Implementation service line at McKinsey & Company? Curious to learn more about the business as well as how the interview looked like. Appreciate sharing your thoughts on this. Thank you!
What have you all heard about MasterCard consultants? Are they an internal team or are they just like MBB consultants traveling to clients and all that?
In case H1B gets denied (I hope that doesn’t happen), what countries have you considered moving to besides Canada. Indian national and pending transfer to MBB if that helps.
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
Im applying to this startup that has two positions that im really interested in. I already sent my app for one where I think my chances are better. Should I send an email to tell them Im interested in the other position as well, or would this be strange / weird?
Deloitte Comp: 2nd year commercial DHC here. New base salary: $96,500 with a $6000 bonus. How does compare to other 2nd year Cs out there?? (Both DHC and non DHC)
Who is hiring in NYC?
SC making $73k with Booz. Deloitte offered $85k + 13% potential bonus, to which Booz countered with $90k + $5k retention bonus. Is this a no brainier to stay? Work in Fed health using Tableau and R
One of the SMs is supporting my promotion case but they are lately trying to micromanage me and ask all nagging questions unnecessarily. Unsure how to handle this professionally.
What do some people do to create multiple streams of income/passive income? I’m mid twenties but am seeing my friends and peers wealth grow exponentially quicker than mine despite myself having a higher salary. Any suggestions to grow wealth? I’ve tried my hand at investing but am sticking around a 10% growth (prior to losing almost my whole investment in GME today lol)
Advice? Ever done all the prep work for a new role on the project and got things ramped up with client only to be told to have everything transfer over to someone more senior to take the position?
I get nervous when I have to communicate project status in huge conference calls. Any tips?

I have taken two sections of the CPA exam through California. Due to the 9 month window, I only applied for two sections initially. I just mailed my $50 reapp payment to the CBA. How long does it take to get re-approved so that I can schedule the last two sections ASAP? Thanks!
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
How can I become more “okay” with being an average performer? I’m two years out of school and have been considered a high performer so far, but it’s taken a toll on my mental health and I feel anxious most days. I’ve realized that the cost of being a high performer outweighs the benefits, and am trying to loosen up and be more comfortable with coasting on occasion... I’m what people may consider an insecure overachiever. Has anybody here ever had the same feeling?
Which RB to play: Michael Carter, Ronald Jones II, J.D McKissic McKissic projected least points but leaning towards him
Happy NYE everyone! Honestly a bit of a weird question - but I can’t tell if I got a referral for McK or not. I thought I didn’t but I actually might have? Associate partner directed me to a recruiter & then we had a chat recently. How does the referral system for McK work? More details in thread:
Been looking at LinkedIn profiles for the acct/finance staff for a client. Many of them have B4 experience, but they all seem like they're doing dead end work. Makes me re-think exit ops. Advice?

My team mate has a very noisy way of biting his nails - imagine a smacking sound. Happens all day long in the team room. How do I tactfully raise this?
