About to give my first interview at my old college for first rounds. Any tips, best practices? Ex: cases, or red flags to look for when talking to applicants?
Got a 730 on GMAT 3 years ago (applying to top 10 MBAs next year). Should I retake if I'm confident it will be 750 or higher? Engineering undergrad GPA was 3.3 so I'm worried about offsetting that.
Do you wear your wedding/engagement rings to interviews? (Rings have connotations for both genders...)
Deloitte and EY, what are your benefits like? I currently get 5 weeks PTO and 100% match up to 6% 401K. I want to start applying elsewhere since I'm underpaid but base salary isn't everything

Laid off at PwC. Is there a point in applying to Deloitte? Looking for healthcare consulting, not sure how other firms are faring in that sector
speaking with a recruiter for internal transfer to another country. Key things to ask or things I shouldn't mention? Haven't interviewed in awhile.

How much of the buyside recruiting process is dependent on your school? Like if you went to a non targ but were top bucket, will you still lose out on interviews to Ivy League grads?
Interviewing at Accenture right now for an Insurance manager position in financial services, I'm currently year #2 at PWC. What's a reasonable amount to ask for at Accenture?
Interviewed at some megafund PEs, but it seems more like banking than PE to be honest. Some of the MM shops are looking more appealing right about now.
Thoughts on fishing for a competitive offer by applying for a job without intending to take it? Does this burn bridges for the future or create more opportunities?

7 months ago I felt very miserable and posted this https://joinfishbowl.com/post_8zwian Fast forward, I finally pulled the trigger to leave consulting. Got a corporate strategy job with better pay (near-term) and better hours. I bought a peloton and started to exercise again after many years. And I have been spending a lot more time with my wife and child. My long-term compensation trajectory will definitely not be as good as if I stay in consulting - but I think it is the right move
