Exploring a potential data analytics role at MBB that isn’t part of their general consulting track… it seems more like an internal service that partners with consulting teams and occasionally is client facing. I’m interested in pursuing an MBA in the near-ish future and I’m curious how much this would help my application versus staying in my current role as a B4 consultant?
You know you're at the client site too late when none of the on-premise PokeStops have the Lure module on them anymore.

Client mentioned they were trying to internalize me and my team after project end. Has anyone ever had this happened to them / how did you go about it? Are there legality issues in our contract I should be careful of or after contract is up - I am ok?
My Director just chewed me up and started taking over as a lead on my project... 3 weeks in of having no clue what I'm doing, working 10 hrs+/day and multiple sleepless nights, I have to say I'm so relieved. Is it a good idea to take a step back and let my Director run things?

Questions for fish who are currently in Deloitte GPS .. How extensive or much of a pain is the background investigation. I have nothing nefarious in my background, but am currently filling out forms for federal background for current job..

Would anyone that has moved from Big 4 to MBB be willing to chat for 15-30 minutes? I’m hitting a point where I am enjoying consulting (advisory) but I’m not sure the idea of narrowing in on a specific industry and exact skillset appeals to me. Seems like MBB is broader and I’m curious (also not assuming I could even get in, but I want to explore the option).
Attempting to renter the workforce after a 2 year hiatus due to health issues followed by the pandemic.

I was let go by EY last September, does anyone know if they are hiring back the people they let go? I am from tax. Given the speculation of oct visa bulletin, where it’s anticipated, similar to last year this year too the date of filing might move ahead 4-5 years, in this scenario my date might become current and would like to file 485 with EY since my current PERM is not yet initiated. Please advise.
