My firm was one of the firms that gave covid bonuses but did not specify whether everyone was getting it. I didn’t make my hours this year because I was on maternity leave and a bunch of my cases ended 1-2 months before I went out so I had lower hours before I started my leave. I couldn’t make up for those lost hours when I was back since I was working from home with an infant because of covid. I didn’t get the covid bonus, which in my mind is ironic considering the circumstances. (Cont.)

Applying for NYU One Year Tech MBA for May 2021 start. I’m currently making 120k. I can probably hit 200k in 5 years but I’m also 34. Is it worth it to get my MBA and pay 140k to work at MBB or FAANG?

Can I get a job in a private equity firm as an analyst after a CFA, and what procedure is needed to adopt for this?
If anyone is interested eliminating the IFs in their employee model practice let chat. I’ve been consulting advisors for the past 10 years on ways to dominate the IFs. Doing so creates consistency leading to focus and focus equals growth. What are your IFs - comp- product push- flexibility- compliance restrictions ????
At a boutique healthcare firm with very limited scope. How do I learn more broad consulting principles and how to think like a consultant at large?
Leaving PwC. Weird that I can't go back to industry. Can only think about the other big 4.

Any thoughts on Davita as an exit opp? Recruiter reached out for a Strategy / Ops role. Stalked LinkedIn and their people have similarly strange backgrounds (i.e. HYP UG in ecology, Stanford PhD, etc)
Thoughts on moving in-house at the end of maternity leave from Big Law? Will it burn bridges at my firm? I’m a mid-level currently on leave, and was just offered a position with a high-growth sister company of one of my firm’s largest clients. A part of me thinks that my practice group leader will be happy to have me there to bring future business his way, but another voice in my head says I’m just fooling myself and that resigning after a 20-week leave is bound to piss people off.
I have an offer for £55K as a senior consultant at a boutique firm in London (supply chain consulting). 10-15% bonus and £5K relocation since I'll be moving from North America. Good or bad offer? I have 5.5 YOE total, 2 in consulting
Working from home internationally - if you’re wfh internationally, how have you been paying your taxes? Heard there’s a way to reduce tax when wfh internationally.
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Any clue about 1st year comp for a strategy Partner at KPMG? Considering making a move at the Director level. Thanks!
