Coming from government consulting at Deloitte and I’m looking to apply to a generalist role (where I can explore multiple industries) at MBB. Should I try to hide the government nature of my experience on my resume and interviews at the risk of seeming unforthcoming (since government consulting experience seems to be viewed very negatively) or lean into it? I’ve seen a couple other threads on this but it’s only non-MBB people that respond.
I had an interview today with a big firm. The firm recruiter called to let me know the partners liked me but that two recruiters had submitted my resume, including one at Parker Lynch. I’ve never worked with Parker lynch or submitted my resume to them (I just checked my emails) has anyone had similar experiences?

Need advice related for upcoming Case Interviews
I have limited experience doing case interviews, have a few coming up next week with a single T2 firm and multiple Boutique firms in Data, Analytics, and Accounting/Finance/Digital transformation groups.
Would love to pair up for cases
(Additional info: I have read case interview secrets, and things of that nature. I've also used a case study interview practice website. Any other tips, especially what to focus on in the boutiques?)
My final round of interviews with McKinsey is on Friday. I made good progress, but I still feel unprepared.. or at least not meeting the bar, in my subjective opinion. What can I do to increase confidence and focus? Should I just wing it at my current project and try to practice with somebody as many times as I can? TIA

Hi fishes, need urgent advice. How is the HDFC Index Sensex Plan? I have invested 75K but it's in loss as all others. Should I continue to average it out or stop investing in it? The loss is higher in this compared to other funds.
I’m not old BUT when I was younger I thought it was important to have all the alphabets after my name (I.e. Phr, SHRM and all the others). I learning that the younger crowd coming into the market thrives off these identifiers yet they know very little about the real world aspects of the job. I watch leadership roll their eyes at the email footers. I feel like keeping those attached to my name hurts my credibility so I removed them…. I’m I thinking wrong?

I've joined an agency and have someone in my team who's been there ten years and in my view is an average to below average performer who's now overpaid for their value. In Australia, it costs tens of thousands to make someone with that tenure redundant. And we're a small business. They've just asked me for a pay rise. Any thoughts on handling this situation welcome.
Does anyone know if there is a site out there that I can use to search for sponsors for my design platform?

I moved into my apt during the pandemic last summer and got COVID price of $2800 for 2 bedroom that I share with my partner in a prime area of LES. The other bedroom we use for his office. It’s a newly renovated building too. Got an email asking if I’d like to renew the lease with the same rate for another year. Is this rare? Have other people been offered the same to keep the same lease price? I wonder if it has to do with the delta scare and people possibly wanting to leave NYC.

I was browsing industry strategy positions, just to get a feel of how to best set myself up for a solid exit. Exact verbiage from a job description: "At least 5 years’ experience in a top tier Strategy Consulting firm (BCG, Bain, McKinsey, Roland Berger, etc.)". I've browsed a few old threads and the top 5 strategy firms are KPMG, then Deloitte (which is more selective than Harvard), followed by MBB. Joking aside, I'm curious what the fishes consider the definitive list of "top tier" strategy?
For those whose company doesn't provide a cell phone & instead provides a monthly reimbursement, do you get a separate device or do you just receive work email and your personal phone? How do you manage privacy issues & do you ever worry about having to turn your device over in the event of litigation? Do you worry about notifying a client if your personal device is lost, stolen, or compromised? Especially interested to hear from those working w govt clients & receive *email* on personal device
