Could someone please enlighten me..
ZS 🐠 - can you receive sponsorship for MBA prior to having tenure of 3 years? If not, what is the downside of applying after 1 or 2 years? I am coming in with 3+ YOE in consulting, so my application would be competitive for next fall (or ‘23)
Could someone please share some insights on Program manager roles:
1. How to prepare for Program Manager roles. (Any materials to follow)
2. What is the expectation from an MBA
3. How is the interview process. (Number and types of rounds)

Hi all! I’m inclined on taking up the CIPM training and certification exam. I’m already a certified Data Protection Officer in the Philippines. I intend on skipping CIPP as it applies to the US and EU.
How difficult was the exam? Can you share your experience studying for the CIPM exam? Is it advisable to skip CIPP?
Many thanks in advance.
Big4/ACN consultant -> MBB Consultant/Associate I was wondering if I get promoted to a consultant from an analyst/BA at one of these firms above, can I lateral to MBB as an Associate or Consultant? Or would I need to start over again as AC/BA or get my MBA. I’d much rather get my MBA thru sponsorship and MBBs seem to have a better package for grad school compared to other firms.
Anyone here applying to/interested in a Masters in Education & MBA joint program?
If you are looking into this, what’s your background and where are you looking to go post-MBA?

I am working in Amazon from past 2 years on 3rd party role as an HR Agency Supervisor and have good knowledge of my field. I have done MBA too.
When our site needs On Roll HR Admin then my manager informed me that this is just for female. And now my manager is asking me to wait for 3-4 months more.
Should i wait as my manager asked or i should start searching for a new Job.
Please Help me
It seems like it’s pretty risky to do an MBA (even M7) if you want to work in non-amazon tech. I work for FAANG already, but nervous about recruiting post-MBA since most schools send only 3-6 people to my company. If I do decide to go the MBA route should I just force myself to be comfortable working at amazon?
MBA(M7) is an expensice way to get one last interview with MBB for failed souls and an expensive vacation for the successfuls.
Need your perspective!

How long does it take to receive an offer letter from Oracle Financial Services Consulting.
I gave my interviews around a month back. Last week called HR, she told me that the offers are with senior management and we are waiting for their confirmation and will roll out the offers as we receive it.
Should I be nervous, am I selected or am I not selected. How long can it take for the offer letter to reach me. Should I ping HR again and again.
My manager a top consulting firm just said to me: If I sleep too much (meaning over 4h per night) I get a headache so better to not sleep too much
Watching his 3rd Redbull, second Coca Cola and ATLEAST sixth cup of coffee today being devoured simultaneously, I'm 100% certain that the reason he's getting headaches is not getting caffeine for 4h - not the "too much sleep" XD
Has anyone every dealt with working for a business where the boss’s (attorney) wife (most definitely not an attorney) seems to actually be the boss? They’re actually insufferable and seem to be negatively affecting the business more than helping. She’s condescending and treats me differently now because I asked for more flexibility in my schedule and a raise because I was making ridiculously less at my previous job per hour. The attorney needs to basically run every single decision by his wife.
I absorbed my managers responsibilities and about half of another role five months ago. I asked for a promotion and a raise. Received a raise but it still does not bring me to market value for the entry-level role that I began with. I was told they cannot promote me due to “supply chain issues“ and directives to remain highly profitable not just moderately profitable. Meanwhile I have seen three men promote in the past few weeks as they are now working multiple roles including leader ship.
I attended the HR discussion today and the discussion went very smooth without any negotiation.
I have quoted for 70% raise, is it too much to ask ?
Can someone give ideas how the negotiation generally goes.. Thanks much in advance 🤗

Does it seem like PA is undergoing a major shift? Feels like B4 & similar are crumbling:
-Pay isn’t keeping pace with industry
-Turnover hitting 50% in most offices, people leaving at unprecedented levels
-General sentiment on social media that PA is basically a pyramid scheme
-B4 losing their grip on college recruits and sense of trust & prestige with the public
-PA losing out on candidates to finance & tech and B4 being rapidly outcompeted by more nimble firms (ex: A&M in advisory)
