Best alternative to Federal PLUS loan to finance my MBA? Would really appreciate recommendations!
I have a summer offer from a large financial institution to own an internal strategy/BD project and present recommendations to the global management team. Am also in the interview process with a boutique consulting firm (Mars and Co) but will not be able to get a decision before the deadline of my other offer. Thoughts on what to do if the goal is to end up consulting at MBB after graduating? (MBA candidate). Tried posting this in the consulting bowl as well but couldn’t.
Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?
MBA or not? Considering getting an MBA but the $200k debt is preventing me from immediately saying yes. I have about 65K in student loans from undergrad and a non MBA masters. 260K in loans sounds bad

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

Office 1 sponsored MBA for ~100k USD. Cannot go back to office 1. Spent 2 years (pay back period) at office 2. Office 1 wants me to pay back in full if I leave (as commitment was to go back to office 1 after MBA). I believe that to claim any amount they need to prove the damage I did to the company. Clearly the company (worldwide) did benefit from me being 2 years at office 2 (0.5-1m Rev).Can office 1 claim damage/ revenue loss if the company as a whole benefited? 1 and 2 are different countries

I’ve realized most people actually hate the big D, because lots of the people hired & top talent were near misses at MBB (final round etc.) and they resent the firm because of it. It’s a sad reality but it’s true.
It's my first day at a different big 4 than my tag and the only thing I have to do is an hour zoom call, then the next two days are 3 hr zoom calls. Is this normal? PwC had me doing 9 hrs of training the first day lol
So unmotivated by partners complete lack of communication and transparency during COVID... Radio silence re: firm health, bonus prospects, unresponsive to emails, team zoom mtgs scarce + a joke, etc.
Saw that Charles Aris mentioned that corporate compensation is 5-10% higher than consulting. Is that versus base salary only or all in compensation?
Im on an H1B at Deloitte. I want to move to the Dubai and have been getting some traction with two different consulting firms. I’ve used less than one year of my first H1B. If at some point in the future I want to move back to the US will that count as a new petition or the sponsoring company with which I’ll get a job can file a transfer petition and get me started?
It's anyways great getting a Christmas Eve email from your partner, esp if he's implying you'll be on site Monday Dec 26th despite it being a holiday.
Does Hill Holiday even look at applications?

Currently articling at a firm & I have 10 days of vacation. Office is closed for a week (Xmas to new year). I’m taking off an additional 4 days in December but not consecutively. When putting in my request, I’ve had two partners tell me “That’s fine with me, but just so you know lawyers typically don’t take off 2 weeks” and the other tell me “okay, but I never took vacation for the first 4 years of my practice and be prepared to log on if we need you.” Has anyone else experienced this?
Anyone else goofing off while WFH? At the office I had to pretend to be busy, but no more pretending for me!
My shop got back to the office and whenever we have a client/vendor call and they are all still remote I feel so embarrassed to be dialing in from a room full of people. Just make us look like morons.

How many of you are sending your kids to daycare? I’ve been on maternity leave and joining in the next few weeks. Planning to send the toddler to daycare and keep the baby home but freaking out if we get the virus home. We have pretty much been home these last few months. But I don’t know how me and my husband could possibly manage both kids while working from home. Anyone keep two kids home and manage work? Any tips ...
