I have offers with Bain (Sr mgr) and BCG (PL2), and will be focusing on their PE practices. I know Bain is the leader in PE work, but having trouble deciding which offer to go for. Biggest factors for me to consider is career progression (in consulting), culture, optionality in the types of deals/projects. My conflict right now is I had better interactions with BCG interviewers and initially leaned that way, but the infrastructure & market presence of Bain in this space is strong. Thoughts?
anyone here in the PwC Bay Area Risk Assurance (Business Continuity) practice? How is the team and the culture?
I only been at BIG 4 for a year. I am so miserable because I work at PwC and my team is huge and the busy season is endless. I was thinking of transferring to a different firm because I dont feel like I fit my culture so was thinking of moving to a different firm?
Anyone have insight into Citi's WLB and culture? Got an offer to join their Digital team. Comp is basically where I am now (lower bonus percentages actually), but would be more of the work I like (from PMO to product). Culture and work hours will be a huge factor in my decision.

Cloud strategy SM TC and culture for Deloitte and PWC? Approached by recruiters for both.
Hear me out. We’re living in the residual days of advertising power. Back in the day, if you worked in advertising, you very much shaped culture. Advertising creatives shared the airwaves with only the likes of Hollywood and national news. There were only so many pipes into culture and advertising was a big one. But today, the pipes are democratized. Random teens on TikTok are having more impact on culture than Mad Ave. And yet, so much ego and self importance remains.
Looking for honest and positive advice please. Have an offer for D which is 165K TC (SC level) but was recently promoted at the SA level (125K TC) with an incredible team and relationship. Would it be worth leaving an amazing team and positive culture so soon? I’d essentially be starting from scratch from a relationship perspective. For background, I have 2 YOE in Cloud.

Time to switch to bonds in your 401k?
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)
Google offered me a base not much higher than my current and 150 in equity. Would have to move sf area so wanted a higher raise to adjust for cost of living. Will try to negotiate but hear they...
Plan to go to B-school in 3 years (1 year out of UG now). Long term goal is entrepreneurship. Have offers at a MBB firm for a generalist consultant role and at FAANG for a strategy role. FAANG offer is slightly higher (though both are a 50+% bump on my current comp). Both would have me reset to entry level. Which one should I take?
Considering leaving my consulting job and joining a company that pays at least 50k more in salary. Struggling with whether or not it's the right move. What do you guys typically look out for when researching a company (any red flags or positive signs that is a good/stable company)?

Bonvoy Titanium. Did not get a complimentary suite upgrade at a Ritz, but I was offered a suite upgrade for a cost. Meaning they had some available. Can they do that? If they have suites available, don’t they have to upgrade me? I know Ritz plays by slightly different rules, so curious
TMI question, but i stopped nursing my second kid 2 years ago and I’m still producing a trickle of milk. Does this ever go away? I even had undersupply, so it’s not like I have bionic boobs!

Please include: (1) size of firm; (2) location of firm (city, state); (3) how many paid weeks off from firm (not state/fed benefits); (4) other policies such as ramp up/down time, etc.
MBA folks: how much did you spend each year? Excluding rent and tuition; including dining, travel, leisure?
Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Am i missing any smart moves here?
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
