I did an internship with a boutique consulting firm that got extended for a full year while I was in school full time as well. On top of that I have 16 months of experience in my B4/T2 consulting firm, and I have a ton of other experience on top of that interning at banks and startups. TLDR; I have 3+ years of experience, 1 year at a small consulting shop and 1.5 years at B4 upon graduation. Is it true that none of this experience really counts?

Can any LBS/INSEAD alum shed some light on comp/salary situation in US recruitment? Is it standard salary for all MBA recruits (US & international) or different?
I woke up at 3 AM with Sunday scaries despite being off this week. Decided to look back at pictures/quotes I’ve taken screenshots of over the years and have determined I’ve been stagnant in life for a solid 3-4 years. Sure I passed the CPA exam, made senior, then manager, but my satisfaction with my job and life has remained low for that duration. Every year around now I start looking to leave but never do because industry seems boring. Any advice? 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
IBM is offering me the position of Test Specialist with 7A band but it has offered the position of Senior Consultant with 6B band to my friend. We both are having 6 YOE in Testing and have been tagged to the same project in IBM. Then why this difference?? Am I loosing out on my designation?? Or is my friend loosing out on band?? Please suggest.

Recruiter from Amazon reached out for a phone screen for a L7 role st Amazon - Principal Product Manager, Technical. I'm a first year M and have been in consulting mostly. I do have the technical expertise the role requires but no product management experience per se. Think L7 at Amazon for me is a reach. My concern is if I interview and fail, I will be barred from interviewing from another role for 6 to 12 months. Should I give it a shot or save my chance for something more realistic (e.g. L6)?

I’ve always been a social person and enjoy the team environment. However, as I move up in the firm and over the past few months, I’ve become very anxious for both internal and external meetings/calls and work in general. I’ve been working long hours since August and will continue to do so until April. The holiday breaks are making me anxious, as I’m expecting to be asked to work and not be able to disconnect. Not looking for sympathy, just some late night PA thoughts.
