I’m bad at interviewing bc I can’t look at charts and come up with insights on the spot (it takes me a few minutes to process). But that doesn’t mean I’m bad at critical thinking. I feel like the interview process for MBB is flawed

I'm in the process of applying for a job and am in direct comms with their CMO who I'd be reporting into. I've noticed they've always emailed me or responded to me in the evening / weekends, even with non-urgent emails. Is this a work life balance red flag?
Deciding between UT-Austin, Cornell and UCLA for tech. Scholarships aside, I love texas culture having lived there for a few summers but its the lowest rank on my list. UCLA has one of the best pipelines for tech but I’m not rich and dont know anyone in LA so would i feel left out given the affluence of the area ? And cornell I loved the student body and the inclusive tight knit nature but do they place well in the west for tech? Can anyone help? Thank you!

When applying for I140 and adjustment of status simultaneously, is it possible for I140 to be applied through premium processing? I always assumed that premium processing for I140 is an option only when applying for it individually, not along with adjustment of status.
Any advice on interviewing with account team members? Questions to be prepared to answer? Smart questions to ask?
Currently been in DDV the past 3 years and I am stuck. I’ve had interviews and final rounds but feel like my experience is too general to get the offer. I’ve done primarily IT/Ops DD and IMO/SMO work. I’m ultimately targeting S&O / bizops, Corp strategy, or program management in tech. Any suggestions on any mid-point pivots I can make to end up in tech?
What do I need to do if my H1B change of employer petition is denied by USCIS? Can I stay with my current firm and work? Anyone heard of this situation?
For former Accenture consultants (or other consulting firms in general) who pivoted from consulting to FAANG: 1. Why did you decide to move into FAANG? 2. What do you do now? 3. What skills from consulting help the most in your new role (I.e, what skills should I focus on developing myself?) I’m interested in gaining bus/tech experience and considering pivoting to big tech within 2 years to find a better sense of direction. Current level: CL9 (consultant) (2.5 YOE) Undergrad: Engineering

My wife has an e-tourist visa approved on Oct 22, and we have an Air India flight booked in a week from SF -> Delhi.

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
Anyone from Deloitte get laid off this week?
In a rapidly growing practice, and perhaps 2 years from (non-equity) “partnership”. I like my team and the work I do, but I’ve only ever been a consultant and am tempted to jump to industry to try it out. Interviewing for a Fortune 20 company and applying to others. Maybe FAANG. Let’s say I’m 60% driven by comp, 40% driven by impact. Am I crazy for looking to leave? Should I just continue to ride this one-way train?
