Yes. Marakon is one of the smaller boutique strategy firms. Think of them as somewhat of a smaller version of Parthenon. They don’t have the name recognition of other boutiques, but the work is mostly strategy focused with less emphasis on implementation.

Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back.

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking for years now if I should pursue an MBA program? I’ve heard from many that for some it was helpful and they needed it to get promoted. Others say that currently it can be seen as a waste of money if you don’t need it to be promoted for example. I’m asking because I’ve always wanted to strive to reach the highest level of education I can and I do like to learn but an MBA is an investment and I don’t know if it’s worth it.
