Heard LEK is in the ditch now, I’d be careful there

Might want to look into LEK’s current climate, COVID has caused some business issues for them. Someone who actually works there correct me if I’m off base here.

Not hiring currently unfortunately from what I know

Curious is your undergrad pipeline still active or no hiring there too?

I'm a male with pierced ears that's been working at Accenture Interactive these past few years. I've been wearing transparent studs at work (which are less noticeable but still pretty apparent) to prevent my piercing from growing back in at work. I'm lateraling to MBB now where I'm assuming the rates are higher, clients are more senior, and tone a bit more serious. Would it be a career limiting move to keep my piercings?
