A good indicator of a bad day is drinking Sutter Home from the Hilton Garden Inn pantry.
Booked a 48 hr trip to Orlando cause it was cheap ($120 round trip from dc!) just to get some warmth. Anything I must do? Staying at the ritz. Traveling alone. 32m single.

Anyone leave their firm after 2 years without a promotion? Facing that situation and not sure how to position it to interviewers-especially those who are ex-consultants themselves
How are expert consultants perceived at Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Company? Are there any differences with the generalist path. (In terms of comp and other benefits)? Thank you!

I gave interview for Technical Manager in Wipro. JD was leaning heavily on architect side. The interview was boring, and the main focus was on team building. All my answers were technical in nature, which did not impress the interviewer. He said, he is just looking where I can fit in the organisation. I doubt they will just put me on hold. Can anyone help me understand, or share similar experience with Wipro if they had.
