Have a few friends who did. Most left within six months due to extreme working environment. Another friend went to work for Bain Tokyo, same story but he somehow survived for 3 years and found a sweet Google gig

Lol i might know this friend of yours.... is he from Stanford

I always wondered what kind of work MMB Korea did.

Have heard working in Seoul is tough on WLB; consulting makes it worse since the clients are also working a ton. At least according to Bain Seoul colleagues!

Classmates who went to work for MbB seoul all left within a year

Would like some advice on this topic. I want to know if the number of MBB entry level hires and or interns will be affected during this upcoming university fall-recruiting cycle. If so, by how much? I’m wondering if my chances to get into these firms (for a full-time role) will be higher or not if I wait till Fall 2021 recruiting cycle.

Post partum I found myself feeling very...for lack of a better word- dumb. I was in a brain fog, missing details in my writing, struggling to maintain train of thought in depos. I thought it was exhaustion from newborn life, and pumping, etc. But I’m just over a year out and still feel this way. I want so desperately to get back to my pre-baby skill set. My question is (1) has anyone experienced this, (2) how long did it last, and (3) what if any steps did you take to mitigate this?
