Checked salary average for top MBA programs...if I already earn that or more without an MBA, why would I take on $200k of student loans? Sure I could learn something by getting my MBA, but I also think there comes a point where experience far outweighs a degree. Also OP, some things just can't be taught in school...like humility, common sense, and work ethic. Get some.

I could not have gotten a consulting job without an MBA. Had a very non traditional industry, admin type job post undergrad that would not have prepared me for consulting. While I learned A LOT in business school, other big motivation to go was build a network and get a great job (that's closer to my dream job). If I had gone into consulting after undergrad, this would be a different conversation... Probably wouldn't have gone the MBA route

I guess this means I'm an ill-educated, useless non-MBA at an MBB. Well that's confusing.

I gave a series of interview and submitted all documents on Accenture portal. Hr negotiated salary and confirmed on call.

Now after all the efforts a different HR calls me back and reduced a major portion of CTC and said we can't offer more than this.

Is this a negotiation gimmick?

I told them right on the first day itself that if you can't give me my expected CTC let's not waste each other's time.

Will they call back?
It doesn't hurt me much as I have one more offer in pipeline.Pls help

So since the beginning of my career back in 2017 I was hired by Goldman Sachs via campus placements. It was my first and I was selected to be a part of the operations team and ever since I changed my jobs I have been in operations since then. I was never asked during my placements if I was interested in operations but then moving on, I have an interview for the role of a consultant in a start up. I'm 26. I have no idea about the Industry but I am willing to explore. Would this be a good fit?

I told my firm two months ago that I am pregnant (due 11/11) I was already low on hours and we’ve had conversations on how I could progress. In the last month or so, I have done just that. They have now asked me to switch to a staff attorney position with 10% less hours with a corresponding 10% salary reduction (effective 8/1). While it would be nice to less hours with my first child, I am upset that they’re essentially demoting me right before my maternity leave. Thoughts on what I should do?
