Second year BTA- if I get on an internal role for 4-6months will that risk me not being promoted even if I do well in that role?
Recently exited to corporate as a manager in a strategy role. The place is great, but I realize I don't have dedicated folks to make slides for me similar to consulting, and end up making quite few on my own (which is not the most efficient - since it has been a while since I made slides e2e with the formatting et. al). When one tends to apply consulting rigor into the process - this can get quite time consuming. Anyone else face this? How did you handle it?

What’s a good role for someone who isn’t passionate about the corporate world but wants to live a certain quality of life? I was stressed and unfulfilled as a consultant so switched to an industry role (in the office of CIO, total comp is <$200k) and am now bored with the work and my much older coworkers. Am I destined to hate my job or have I not found the right one? Am in my late 20s without career goals or trajectory that excite me and considering grad school as a way to pivot

On the bench, and on PTO effectively until 10/1. No project lined up because apparently it's too far in the future for anyone to staff. I'll be leaving the firm before the next FYE.
I really like the work done in consulting, but am not interested in the selling/relationship building process required of higher levels in this job. At what level should I plan to exit consulting if I want to stay as long as possible without my job becoming chasing work to sell? Currently a second year Associate (out of undergrad). I’m guessing I should exit 1-2 years after reaching Manager level?...
Did anyone put a two week notice and was asked to leave immediately because you were on bench? Not leaving for a competitor
EY's fiscal year ends in June and effective July 1st utilization resets. How fitting that there is a heavy emphasis on keeping utilization up in the coming weeks. 😂
Senior utilization expectation is 95%? So if you have 3 weeks on the bench in a given year you're not meeting expectations?
How important is the school you go to if you plan on being sponsored by your company? Say my consulting firm pays for my MBA if I return to work for them after 2 years. Does the school I go to matter? What if I want to switch industries 2 years post MBA? Would post MBA work experience trump school brand or does the quality of network (M7 vs T15) matter more?
