Has anyone left Big 4 to T2 instead of MBB? What was the experience like? Pros/Cons I feel like most of threads are Big 4 to MBB, instead of T2. I'm interested in Kearney and L.E.K along with MBB.
I feel like such a Noob. I’ve been doing Salesforce implementation consulting for 5 years and now realizing this whole other ball park with Strategy consulting at places like MBB. Is it worth it to apply for MBB and try to change my consulting career or just continue to specialize in my Salesforce consulting career?

Is it just me or do I feel that brand-level consulting (e.g., product strategy) is more interesting, on balance, than management consulting? But it seems like the market rates for these kind of projects are lower than MC projects. Does MBB play in this product strategy space, or is it mostly other boutiques and ZS/LEK? Like is there a consistent competitor set we’re bidding against?
Has anyone here (MBB or similar hours) ever attempted to do a masters part-time? I feel like it’s out of reach for me unless I stop working or switch jobs, but would love to hear other perspectives.
Looking for advice on how to career pivot. My husband is a general manager for a company that has HQ in a different state so growth opps are limited unless we move. How do I help him pivot into a more corporate job somewhere before it’s too late and he’s pegged as a boots on the ground GM? He has so much potential but I feel like all people see on his resume is that he’s a GM of a location as opposed to an operations leader especially when applying to jobs on LinkedIn. Looking for jobs in ATL.

Really not sure why I went to law school. I spent all that time and money earning the degree and getting licensed. I now go into work, and while I do enjoy what I do somewhat, I am always stressed and I cant sleep at night because I’m worried about messing something up. I look at my friends who aren’t attorneys and they not only have a much more lax workload and can have more fun during the week, they also make more money than I do. Why am I in this industry again?

FYI, for anyone interested in facts from a reputable publication This is the house response so far : “While I recognize the sincerity of all members and senators struggling to find solutions, unfortunately the provisions sent to the House by the Senate yesterday most likely make matters worse, not better,” said Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D., Calif.), chairwoman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on immigration, who sponsored the House bill.

Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?
