23 and looking to apply to MBA in ~3 years. What do I need to do to better my chances for an M7? Context: Mid-level undergrad with 3.79 GPA, top of class performer at IBM, have Negotiation Mastery and Disruptive Strategy certifications from HBS, not sure what to work on next.
I’m applying this year for MBA (Fall 2021 start), but really want to shoot my shot for MBB before that, BCG specifically, because I can’t deal with all the EY BS anymore. Say I was actually able to get an offer, would I be blacklisted from BCG if I left for an MBA 6 months after being hired?
Have no connections at MBB or a grad degree. Does that severely or moderately limit my chances of landing an interview? At B4 in DC with a liberal arts degree from top 25 school and data analytics cert. Promoted quickly and ranked high performer for what it’s worth. What would help up my chances the most? Assuming baseline talent, ability, and prep.
Everyone talks about pay in PE, what does it actually look like? Better than post-MBA MBB?
Would anyone be willing to share a successful M7 MBA resume from a strategy consulting background for review? I am hearing a lot of ad. Consultants say I can’t use my standard resume but struggling a bit to identify which aspects of “consulting” to leave out. Most of my bullets are leadership and action/result oriented, so not really getting why it must change. Really appreciate the support

At a T2 firm and considering an EMBA. My background is: -TC $300K, clear path to promos -7 YOE, T10 undergrad -Do lots of work in target industry, good contacts Will an EMBA be a net positive or negative to my “prestige”? Is it worth the time and $ investment? I am not a career switcher and do not feel like I fit the profile of a FT MBA student.
I’m supposed to start my MBA in a few weeks but there is something inside me that is pulling me back. I’m afraid of quitting my job, taking out a debt that will take my net worth negative, and
I have 10 years of experience. Mostly in Unix, C++ and Visual C++ and MS SQL. I developed interest in cloud computing as like many others and was able to clear AWS Cloud Practitioner, AWS Solution Architect Associate and Professional, AWS Security. Along with these I was able to clear 8 Azure certifications as well: 3 fundamentals, Azure Security, Azure Developer, Azure DevOps and Azure Architect. Now my main question, can I try to switch on Cloud Architect or some other similar cloud roles?
Any recommendations for MBA admissions consultants? Getting sticker shock looking at the prices…
Those who took the AWS CCP exam - do you get questions like “how much does a storage type cost per GB per month” in the exam? Trying to figure out whether this level of detail is required to be memorized for the exam

Does anyone have the AWS Cloud Practitioner certificate and does it hold any value? I’m non-tech looking to get some certificates under my belt to be more marketable in my job search
I’ve been offered the opportunity to interview at 2 of 3 MBB in the near future. I applied earlier this year and I was initially rejected. I’m an older experienced candidate without a SO or kids. I have a MBA. I am at a good place right now in my career with my current employer. I would be coming in at a lower level but I’m not worried about that. Pay is the same. I will be working more hours at MBB. My resume is already solid but I’m sure MBB would help.McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group

I have offer from Yash technologies for SAP. How is the work culture there? Is it a good company in terms of hikes, roles, promotions and benefits. Is it better than joining Deloitte Considering salary in Yash is a little less than Deloitte. Will I get ample learning opportunities in Deloitte if I join there.I am thinking about work life balance too. Please suggest me where to join. I want to join a company where I'll have learning opportunity, but mental peace is also needed. Please guide.
At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
I have a lead on a great paying Sr Business Affairs role. Can do fully remote. DM for details.
So, we invest a total of 85K in the market each year (39K through 401k + 14k employer matching 401k + 12k roth ira + 20k 529). Still end up saving another 100k in cash each year. Should I invest it in real estate to diversify or continue investing in market. So far, I have done real estate in the last 3 years. Early 30s here
Hi Fishes, How is harman connected services in terms of work culture , management, job security and kind of projects? I have opted for gurgaon location and I am from automation testing field. Does HCS has good projects at gurgaon location?
I have two offers: 1. a strategy and ops role at a late stage startup, pre ipo (think databricks, Stripe) 2. a data science role at a bank. Comp is roughly the same at 270k TC. I’m much more interested in data science long term, but have FOMO about missing out on pre ipo shares. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

The truth about how covid started
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
My principal approached me in the car pick up line on Friday to inform me that I’ve taken to many days off & school has just started. I took 1day off when my daughter tested positive for Covid, I had an doctor’s appt that had been scheduled 6 months ago to see the hematologist. Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!
Is Accenture so cheap that when you book a hotel through CWT they purposefully don’t include the breakfast so you have to spend per diem on continental breakfast?
Has anyone had a hookup during quarantine? A guy told me he tested negative for COVID last week but I don’t know if I can trust him - thoughts?
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
We always keep hearing about the bad WLB in MBB, especially BCG. Want to know if it's actually true, or is it an untrue rumor spread by people who couldn't get into these companies. (Note - I am talking about incremental WLB issues, over and above the issues at Deloitte S&O, Accenture Strategy, etc. as these issues are common in management consulting)
