Genuine Q... How on earth do people get away with paying for executive MBAs? Or full time MBAs for that matter? V frustrated by the numbers and worried about ROI etc
for those of you who have gotten multiple offers from MBB, which did you choose and why? Looking back would you have done the same
Generally what percentage of MBA candidates with a 1R interview end up getting offers at MBB?
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm. Wondering what I can do to prepare myself, are there any courses, books that would help me gain some skills. I have mostly done PMO, tech implementations kind of work so far. Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.
Hello, I am a Software Engineer with 14 months experience and plan to switch to the role of a Product Owner. I've been a part of Scrum teams throughout my tenure as a Software Engineer. I'm doing a course on Business Foundations and plan to take the PSPO certification exam. Are there any other steps that I need to take to make the transition? Also, is the transition at all feasible given my around 1.5 years of work experience?
Thinking of taking the cpa exam. Been out of school for over 5 years .. not feeling super confident. Any cpas here who could give any advice?
Hey hey all you lovely people, hope you're excited for the weekend! So this question's for a friend- would anybody have an insight on entry level MBB/T2 consultant salaries in Dubai/the Middle East? I've been told that the numbers on Glassdoor are outdated, is that true?
If you’re a non-MBB consultant without a top GPA or top 10 undergrad, do you basically have 0 chance at HSW? Curious of the profiles of those who made it with these factors.
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
Looking at PE options right now…really enjoy consulting and is solely looking at PE for the $$ Pre-mba role, but thinking of mba in the next 3 years. Is comp worth the extra hours in PE?
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
Do I take this offer for 100% raise? Knowing I may slip in to depression. I’m the happiest I’ve been in the last 2-4 years. My only complaint is my current role is boring but (cont)...
Grad job advice needed! Should I take a data analyst role at a no-name boutique or non-strategy/non-finance Advisory role (Physical Asset Management) in Big 4? My end goal is to end up in Strategy (MBB, LEK, Kearney, Big4Strat) after an MBA or by networking. Which role would set me up the best? Thank you kind sirs.
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
I have some extra utilization. Does it automatically roll over to the next performance year or do I have to let someone in Talent know?
Looking for non-fiction book recommendations - doesn't have to be finance related. The last ones I read and really enjoyed were Misbehaving by Richard Thaler and Gene by Siddhartha Mukherjee.
Rolled off my first project due to performance. I’m bummed and it’s the first time it’s happened to me. Talked to my coach and PM about it. Still feel like I have a scarlet letter.
Thinking about switching to Accenture from EY. What's Accenture's expense policy like? Can you choose your own hotel? Breakfast, lunch, dinner amounts? Meal averaging if allowance? Per diem? Airlines?
Alt travelling as a 3rd wheel with a colleague who is a good friend and his gf in Chicago, anyone interested in a meet up?
When do you think we’ll start traveling and do you think COVID-19 will change the way our industry works?
My SM passed my idea off as his on… failed epically at the execution and didn’t have information for the client. He then attempted to blame me for his failure in front of the client. How do you deal with this
Has anyone had a hookup during quarantine? A guy told me he tested negative for COVID last week but I don’t know if I can trust him - thoughts?
Is there a way to get a WebEx plugin on Outlook? I can't stand logging into the portal every time I want to schedule a meeting.
