Folks - how do you prep for case interviews in half a week? Any resources you would point me towards? It’s been over 5 years since I last had interviews. Sure I am in consulting but I honestly don’t do this thing on the day to day so am very sure will be very rusty.
How long could it take to get Amazon response after sql technical interview ok chime? I have interview on Friday and today it’s second working day after it. Should I expect rejection?
Is letting a recruiter know you are in the final stages of another interview good or bad if you value the company more? (value the company where the interviewer it’s being emailed). Will they actually help speed up the process?
My partner (along with his team) has been laid off from an equity research role. He is on H1b visa and has until end of February to find a new job otherwise he’ll have to leave the country.

Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Is it worth it to hold out until manager in FDD? Or exit now as a senior into a senior m&a role
Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
I’m interviewing with an agency that has a terrible reputation here and on Glassdoor. I’d be at a small satellite office, not HQ. How would you bring up the negative reviews, if at all?
Hi Everyone, I have an upcoming JAVA interview. Experience 5yrs. What kind of questions are expected? If anyone has any list of questions or link, please share. Thanks in advance.
Just had a look at some start-ups that are hiring and a lot of them offer unlimited vacation days... think this is a good practice?
Have first rounds with McK and BCG in two weeks (undergrad) and am liberal arts major. I’m nervous about math portion of case interviews - any resources for practice case math outside of rocket blocks? Or general advice?
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run

Any Facebook recruiters here? I have an interview coming up with them and want to know how you like it.
What are the potential benefits of working at a deals oriented firm (e.g., LEK, S& Deals, EY-P) as compared to the more traditional Big 4 MC type roles at the post-M level? Really struggling with putting in the hours for the deals centric role as I’m not 100% sure of the longer term payoff (besides short term slight bump in comp).
Does anyone here hold a non-CFA designation (CFP, CAIA, FRM etc.) and what kind of role/position do you have?
Telling a recruiter you have other interviews and possible offers coming in order to make them speed up a possible/rejection? Good Idea?
Started about 8 months ago from another firm but already interviewing for industry roles. Is it worth sticking it out for a few more months? For more context, I have about 5 years exp, all consulting
Hey Consultants. I just might have a Bain interview coming up in a few weeks. So far I have had 3 R1s of the other two MBB but got dinged. I don’t know what I am doing wrong but I need help as I call this the “last dance” so far I have done 40+ live cases with MBB consultants.
Went through a bad burnout a few months ago and ended up taking some time off during the Christmas holidays to recover. Now that I am back, I feel disengaged and can’t help but constantly feel like I don’t belong here. Anyone else go through a similar experience?
After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
I know we're all out for calling out asshole men. But what about abusive women? It makes me sick to see ladies stomping on ladies. Anyone else?

Any insights into expected salary range for a Sales Consultant (L9) in Boston at Accenture ?
You started at a new role/company 2 months ago that is +50% your previous TC, a level promotion, and you’re happy with the team and scope. However you’re also currently in a long distance relationship with a SO you love and have been with for 4 years. The relationship is starting to crack and moving abroad to be with her seems like the best decision to kee the relationship. How would you play this out sirs/maams? Ask manager to work abroad and quit if they reject it? Thx for the feedback 😔
Best affordable (under $250) standing desk for someone who’s 6’2? Ideally electric, seen a ton of options online but not sure which ones are actually good quality
Got asked by my manager what would be the best practice for track & trace instead of scheduling hangout meetings over & over since everyone is in WFH mode. Do you have first-hand experience to share?
What are associates with roughly 2.5 YOE making in Los Angeles? I’m making $81K but feel like with insurance, student loans, car payment, rent, etc I am unable to save anything and am so stressed.
To the folks who pivoted from tech consulting pre-MBA to IB post-graduation, how has your experience been? What would have been helpful for you to know prior to making the switch?
Have a better offer from another big 4 but I dont feel confident enough to negotiate for a higher pay at my current firm (cont)
Have an average book at best. Somehow an okay agency hired and then fired me. I acquired lots of credit card debt in a short amount of time. Now I don’t feel I’ll get a chance again. I really don’t want to work menial job again but that seems it will soon be my only option.
Just lateraled to a bigger law firm. The team I am on is much larger now and split between 4 offices. My prior firm was great at rationing the workload amongst associates. At my nee firm, it feels like a free for all. I want to make myself known as a hardworking associate but also don’t know how to say no to new work politely. It seems like every conversation I have when I meet a new team member consists of them telling me how much they need my help and putting me on a new project
Looking to do a 4 or 5 day trip from San Fran to LA on the PCH. I would love some recommendations on itinerary, activities, places to stay, and food!
