Case interview prep: we all know how to do this post-MBA, but how to approach this for a lateral to MBB as a manager? Where to find "advanced" cases?

At a more senior level, you may start to get cases that are more specialized and require more actual industry knowledge and perspective (in addition to the basic structuring and problem solving). Can't speak for MBB but we do something like that

Hey OW, what about at associate level? What to expect - more like bschool cases or "specialized" ones?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
