Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
I’ve only worked on tech transformations for clients in one specific industry throughout my whole career. All projects have been almost the same. Is this a disadvantage for mba applications, or is it a pro since I show deep expertise in a certain area? I only really stayed on these types of projects because that’s where my network took me.
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
Is the only way out an MBA?? I need to get out bit dont know how. ——- I think I have very transferrable skills to many job functions but I feel like the job market will see me as an IT professional forever now that I spent 3 years working in data analytics. I am done. I just don’t want to keep talking about data, ETL, automation, reports, triggers, AI, governance, security, warehouses anymore. I hate all of these words now. How to get a Strategy, Ops or PM exit from where I am at?

For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2

MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!
Accenture was equated to the same tier as MBB by a mentor who has worked as a c-suite executive for some major banks. MBBA??? Is it a thing or just one executives opinion?

Who would you want to include in your union? Which levels would be exempt? E-suite? G-suite? Directors aren't managers—or are yours? Who makes final decisions and who has to just live with them?

My husband and I (both 27) max out our Roth IRAs each year, have a complete emergency fund, and I’m able to start maxing my 401K this year (he contributes 10% to his 401K - it isn’t possible for him to max his based on his current pay). We contribute 18% extra towards principal on our mortgage each month. We now have about $20k of additional savings we want to figure out what to do with. What would you recommend to someone who is new to stocks/investments?
What sort of swag did you receive when you joined your firm? (Not talking about signing bonus)
Hello! Do you guys have any tips about working out the first thing in the morning at home? I used to go to the gym 6am pre-covid before work, but since quarantine started, I’ve been waking up like 30 mins before I need to start working/my earliest meeting 😅. It’s so hard to get out of bed when my new “gym” is right next to my bed.
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
