Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
Q for the people that like WFH and never want to go back - what is your living situation? I hate WFH and can’t wait to be back in the office, so curious if other people have adapted better or if their environments are just more conducive to being successful (house with home office and family vs being alone in a 1BR apartment).
What should I be more concerned with... How the client feels about my work? Or how my manager on this project feels about my work? Keep in mind I have been on the same project for 18 months.
Have to decide between two projects. Org design project at PS client or innovation/chargeable BD at fortune50? Not knowing anything else- which do you think is more valuable experience?

I’m going on my first travel project. What’s the best way and tips to earn the most reward? Would appreciate any suggestion
I'm trying to buy a new carry-on size suitcase but am having trouble finding one that fits my requirements. Does anybody know a four wheel spinner bag that's: 1: decent quality build, particularly wheels and handle 2: has a lid that opens and one large compartment (soft or hardside but I don't like the two half clamshell hardsides) 3: looks decent (doesn't have to be fancy/designer, just something I'm not embarrassed to take to a client office) 4: under ~$300
A confession: Asked my office crush out today casually. We work in the same client space, joined together and we both live in Pune. Said no without giving any reason. I am disheartened 😔
Let’s pretend we’re holding companies. I’ll start: No, we can’t hire an extra writer even though you’re clocking 70+ hours a week. BTW, our contract with your client caps billable hours per employee because they know we don’t pay overtime. Here’s a non-billable code you should start using for the rest of the year.
Biglaw, capital markets, major market fwiw. Closing a big deal tonight and was told to order in a nice dinner on the client to celebrate. Price range you would spend on this? Would you get dessert? appetizer?
Lots of us are skilled at delivery but most sales books seem to focus on the pitch and closing... What are your best resources for learning to develop and nurture strong, lasting client relationships?
I get more nervous in client meetings when my Director or Manager are present, than if meeting directly with the client 😳
Feel like there’s conflating between the optimism people feel about reopening and return to work. By going to restaurants and ballgames, I choose to accept the consequences for my own enjoyment. It’s not the same tradeoff asking me to collocate with team members or travel to the client site…

Who is doing a Christmas/holiday party or other client appreciation event this year? My partner and I are struggling with what to do given Covid.
Hey fishes. I've recently moved to a new project where people aren't friendly. I know we're paid to work and not all colleagues are friendly. But, somehow I just feel very bored here. Its just work, work and work. Is this normal? PS : This is just my second project(~2 yrs exp) and wanted to know if this is common across the industry.
Does anyone at the Junior or mid-level here not aspire to be a creative director? I was in a conversation with some coworkers today about the advertising career ladder. Whether from lack of desire or ability to manage others, not everybody will rise to CD level. Does anyone here want to stay a writer or art director your whole career instead of moving into a management position? And is that even possible without aging out or getting priced out?
Currently in the cloud space. When is a good time to exit consulting? Goal is to become a tech lead in a mid to large size corporate. Thanks.

What's the best way to prepare a business case presentation? I've been invited to a final round interview for a medical device company as a process optimization consultant. They sent me a client case study. In the case there are pain points of the client, and some numbers to analyze their workflow and recommend them to use their medical devices for process improvement. I'm not sure how to stucture it. how would you approach it?

Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄
Hey fishes! Is it okay to switch from KPMG to GT for the same position if the pay is 30% higher. I'm seeing KPMG is lame on matching industry standard for CTC ranges for various positions! Currently at ACon2 and will get Con1 if I switch! Please guide.

How do you quit a big law job? Do I write an email? Talk to my partners? The practice chair? Managing partner? HR? I have files to close and fully intend to stay for at least the rest of April to finish open work. I am completely switching practices to go to a boutique if that makes a difference.
