Is there anyone who works for Google or Amazon and has a healthcare background with no tech skills? I have my MBA with a healthcare concentration and I’m looking to switch industries. I’ve started to take certification courses on Udemy but would love any insight on how I could get my foot in the door with those companies. Thank you!!
What are my chances at HSW MBA? I failed some modules in uni and had to resit the year but changed major halfway to management and got a ~3.6, mostly due to marks from the management modules. Currently at T2 consulting firm, can get okay letters of recommendation. Will work very hard on essay and GMAT. Harvard seems out but are Stanford and Wharton still realistic?
How valuable are MBAs? Is it worth it to get one? I’m currently a few years into consulting but I know I’ll be thinking about exiting soon, not sure if I should think about pursuing an MBA as a transition

I got into Ross Online MBA. Is it worth it to spend 125k on it if I’m already making 130k per year?

Have a BA and Masters from 2 top-10 universities. 8 YOE (spanning consulting, tech, and education). Indian/LGBT. 740 GMAT. No grad GPA. 3.7 UG GPA.

For MBA goals essays, is anyone wary of listing target industries that have been badly impacted by this crisis? I.e travel and hospitality. Would it be a risk to list that as a short term goal?

All else equal, what’s better for MBA story and application: M&A execution consulting or pure strategy consulting?
I think something is wrong with the way I wrote my resume. Get dinged without an interview for a few roles (S&O, biz ops, nothing crazy) but when I send my resume directly to hiring managers I now have two final rounds scheduled? HYP undergrad, H/S MBA, McK Sr EM, previous tech experience 😑
My husband and I are considering starting a family. I am currently a consultant and about to finish my MBA. I will be starting to look for other positions within consulting soon. Should I be concerned about recruiters potentially not offering positions if say I am pregnant during interview? I have been concerned as I have heard stories that recruiters tend to stay away from women who are pregnant or even talk about starting families.

Could a nuclear winter caused by nuclear war help stop global warming? Asking for a friend.
Looks like Spotify could use some strategy consulting. Stay AWAY from politically controversial hosts/personalities/politicians. Especially when your user base is dominated by millennials. Classic case of execs not knowing how to separate personal viewpoints from their business. 🤡
Wait whoa 🤯 ?!!! $200K for Walmart store manager?!
I am a Analyst in my 30’s and everyone else that I work with that is a Analyst is in their 20’s fresh out of school. Have had setbacks in my career but trying to just stay optimistic and know that I will have better opportunities. I can’t help but feel embarrassed at times because of my age and the position I am in.
Love coming back from parental leave to discover my leadership wants to replace me with my backfill and would like me to find a new work stream for myself or leave the project. Very cool.
Received offer for $120k at Deloitte for consultant level, currently a big jump from my staff 2 salary of 85k but I know I am being early promoted and will likely make around $105-$110k by August, is the short term salary bump worth starting over at a new firm?
Baby on the way! Any tips for two working parents post paternity leave? Is it possible to WFH with a new born and not pay for day care?
Got this ‘congrats on your promotion’ wine. Is it just me or is the irony too much to bear
How do you come to terms with just not being smart enough to get to the next career level? Currently a senior consultant and the partners seem super humanly smart and good at their job, I think this is as high up as my brain can get
My manager likes me to give him a daily morning breakdown of what I’m going to accomplish and at the end of they day a small report of what I accomplished. And throughout the day activities I’m working on and have finished. I’m tired of this, how can I bring this up? Also when client has a particular ask, he responds only to us in the thread and says to complete the task. Then he responds to everyone (client) saying yes absolutely will get it done. He kisses ass non stop. I’m tired of this.
