Is it stupid of me to apply to LS consulting firms with little experience in business? My only intern experience has been at a local pharma business. Other than that, most of my experiences are in a clinical setting.
Confession to top many: I’m no tinfoil hat guy - but I felt machine guns were cool. So I made a trust, got a lawyer, and bought a pre-ban 1972 made machine gun with my internship money.
How do you deal with a micromanaging CD? I feel completely stifled at work and he treats me (and anyone below him) like an intern. At this point I just want to quit. Any tips are appreciated.

Hi I am having some trouble on choosing between Deloitte and PwC for a 2022 winter internship. Some pros for Deloitte include being the largest firm, and the promotion to senior being 2 years opposed to 3 at PwC. Additionally, Deloitte offers a pension and has Deloitte university. The pros of PwC include a gym in the office and a younger work force. They also give me much less of a “corporate” feel and seem to offer more flexibility. I’m wondering if anyone could give me any advice on deciding?
Blunt message I give to 1st years: "Everyone assumes you have the skills and knowledge of a toddler. Don't talk about what classes you took or your internship. Say and be open to anything."

I’m a senior strategist applying senior strategy positions and not getting traction. At this point I think I must be doing something wrong. Hiring managers - what are your red flags at this level? What do you need to see to seal the deal. Thank you!
Have any of you witnessed a situation where a project teammate was underperforming or the client didnt want them on board anymore, which led to them getting rolled off, but then the teammate tried to accuse you or leadership of racism or gender discrimination as to why they were rolled off?
Has anyone attempted to or actually yoloed by billing 2k hours for the year then just going awol on an extended vacation until the next year? Put that unlimited vacation time and those minimum hours to the test. Honestly can't see why I should essentially do work for free after hitting hours.
Debating on investing on our first rental property. We were initially thinking about a rental in our area code (northern virginia) but all ideas/threads on here seem to indicate renting a beach front property on airbnb would be a win-win. Get mortgage covered over the summer and use it as a vacation home during winter. Is it that straightforward, what are we missing? Any reasons why we should not invest in a beachfront and instead stick to original plan? Tia!
Would anyone that has worked in a valuation role (DCF, Performance multiples) be willing to chat about what that looked like specifically?

Joining New Firm. I met a group of consultants on a client that we both shared. Had a good relationship with the consultants and they invited me to join their team. Are there any implications that would preclude me from joining? I’m currently in a PA firm and they were engaged on loan staff model.

Advice needed-I’m 30 weeks pregnant and constantly getting dumped on at work (in industry now). I’m high risk (gestational diabetes & hypertension) and have been clear with my all male management team that I’m high risk. Still, they are steady trying to pull me into new projects while I’m actively leading one of the most high profile projects in the org. From a career standpoint, I appreciate it, but I cannot physically keep up the way I used to and feel like I’m risking my and my baby’s health.

I just watched the KPMG boss video and honestly I feel it can be interpreted in different ways. You can tell when a person says something to intentionally hurt you and when they can’t just fathom the implications based on how people interpret it. As we learn to work in an increasingly diversity focused environment I pray there’s room for forgiveness. Mind you I am a person of color. I believe in second chances and I don’t think he should have lost his job. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9253165/KPMG-boss-QUITS-video-showed-telling-paid-staff-lucky.html
Has anyone heard of EPAM systems? Is it worth to move from Deloitte to EPAM as a manager? How's company culture? Is it same as Deloitte? Or worse?
