How would you rate the following companies as exit options from MBB in Europe: Wayfair Zalando HelloFresh Not from the region so curious about the culture and general reputation of these three!
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Sometimes, I open my scrubbed resume and it’s like I’m in the movie Memento. Was I on that project? Which client was that? What city? Who was I to them? What did we do? Anyone else 10+ years into consulting and having all the similar project start to blur together?

Hey all, I had a web application running on Google App Engine (from 2011). Didn’t need much caretaking and at some point appengine got an overhaul and now I can’t figure out how to navigate the setup. I’m told the project needs an organization but I can’t figure out how to connect the ancient project with my org. Any googlear out there with some insight?
What are the top 5-6 roles at Infosys (title wise). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also is it a good place to work in NYC relative to the big 4?
Why is it so hard to get placed on another project if everyone keeps saying the bench is so thin?
8 years in engineering and then project management (not software) and now a year as an Associate at McK. What are my options? I really don’t have a good frame of reference.
Is to possible for those counselled out from MBB to make their way back? Particularly at the junior level, so counselled out as an analyst then boomerang back at the consultant level
What's Alvarez and Marshal like - comp, culture, types of work? I've seen some fellow MBB Partners go... But not sure what's the draw
A recruiter reached out from another big 4 expressing interest in me joining one of their practices that i am interested in. They asked if i had spoken to my current partner about internally
Is a switch from IT Audit (b4) to Product Management (industry) role a good move? C1. Significant pay bump as well.
Producer friends who hire editors / deal with budgets: I’m a freelance editor currently charging 1200 / day (base before OT). I get this rate fairly consistently but do have some clients and projects that can’t afford this and if I love the project I will sometimes work for less. I thought this seemed pretty reasonable based on my experience (senior level). But I just heard of another editor charging $1500-$2000 a day. Is this a sustainable? Am I vastly under-charging? Or are they full of it? 🤯
So got client dilema: Did business case last year. Erased data. Now clients wants to pursue. New business case I rebuilt doesnt match at all. Current upside is 25% of prior year. I am pretty sure I made a mistake last year Do I present the new case, do I play crazy? Do I quit the firm in shame and move to south america? What would you do?
Do people on your project teams stay at the same hotel or ever split up? Do any of your team members do Airbnb or non-hotels?
Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC. Currently working on a high profile client and have a decent chance of being promoted to manager next year but will probably go through hell this year to get it and it’s not a sure thing. Should I take the money and run?
The non-audit people out there, does anyone HATE to work at client site like loan staff, etc?
Individual from undergrad got an MBB offer and asked what to do to prepare in the time before starting. What do you recommend? Do you recommend something different for MBA's?
Ladies who also abide by the “expecting better” philosophy that a glass of wine every once in a while is totally fine during pregnancy… I am going to a work women’s happy hour tomorrow. Yay or nay on using my weekly glass of wine? (I am clearly pregnant and people know I am pregnant). I kind of want to but I also fear the judgement and having to explain myself…

Genuinely interested in educating myself. Some people are applauding Simone Biles for withdrawing from Olympics. I am trying to understand how mental health suddenly becomes an issue in a few days? It isn’t like a bone fracture that happens suddenly. Wouldn’t Simone (who has gone through hundreds of competitions) have known the scrutiny an olympic demands to have not participated in the first place? A genuine request - please refrain from attacking or posting non-constructive comments.

I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!
My manager despises talking about the pandemic and WFH policies, he said to stop asking about it during a team meeting. Anyone else experience this kind of tone in leadership? Shouldn’t they realize it’s going to be a huge topic for years?

Need tips on asking for a raise. I’m a 3rd year in a midsized and am embarrassed to admit that I’ve never asked for one nor negotiated starting salary (but was given a 10% and 6% increase past 2 yrs)
What’s that one line that a client or supervisor has said to you that crushed your soul?
Thoughts on utilization? Why is this metric so important in the consulting world, beyond ratings/internal contribution? Should this not be the responsibility of the firm rather than individuals?
Hey guys, I interviewed with Wipro a week back. I had the final HR round and every process is done. But the HR is saying that she is waiting for approval for my salary. Only after that she can release the offer letter. It's been more than a week since that discussion. How much time does it take from final HR interview to getting the offer letter?
My husband just got contacted about a role in the Workday ATL office. Any insights to the culture there?
