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?
Hi All - I have upcoming final rounds with Deloitte Strategy (Transformation Strategy & Design): 1 case, 2 behavioral. I feel a little under qualified. I’m coming from a non-Big 4 Advisory group. I’ve had the fortunate opportunities to work on strategic cost transformations, capacity modeling, and digital roadmap projects, but can’t help but feel like they’ll be questioning my legitimacy. Any tips or good vibes would be appreciated.

Hi Fishes! I’m a newly promoted S1 in tax at a Top 10. I’m trying to join the Big 4 post 10/15 (preferably KPMG) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions to make it in?

All, you were right. My father in law’s rolex is a fake. I still got it fixed for him. It is a bad fake indeed.

So thank you all!
West Monroe Consultants/Senior Consultants in Chicago: what are your thoughts on working for the company, the culture, benefits, and compensation?
Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.
