Big law litigators - After losing an every issue raising in an MSJ, how long before you actually consider offering a settlement? Do you wait until the eve of trial? What benefit is there to wait until the eve of trial? Is there a better time of the year to offer settlement? End of fiscal year? Before holiday season? Any insight is appreciated.
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Is it realistic to aim for a move to MBB after 1-2 years of experience at a Tier 2 firm (OW/ATK/RB/S&) in the region? How difficult is it to move from Tier 2 to MBB?
Just wrapped up a 10 day vacation - didn’t go too overboard on food and stayed pretty active but drank almost every day (not normal for me). Could this be why I’m so bloated and feeling large?
One hell of a productive ‘vacation day’! Spent catching up on all the training requirements and pending client work! #YayPwC!
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than 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.
Question to my peeps who left public accounting. Do you get paid your vacation and holiday balance when you quit?

How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Currently have my vaca. balance maxed out, but I'm going to take a 3 week vacation in 2 months. Anyway to "spend" my vacation in advance w/o actually taking it so I can continue to accrue more vaca???
EY - ladies, what to wear to the holiday party?!
How did you get an interview at MBB? Referral or online application? Or maybe contacting the recruiter on LinkedIn? I’m with 2YOE in healthcare/analytics consulting. Recently looking to move forward to MBB. Appreciate any suggestion!

I am a first year associate in Biglaw. I have been put on an improvement plan to increase my billable hours. My supervisors have commented that have not been getting work because I need to improve my efficiency. I am willing to do what it takes to improve but wonder how to improve my hours when no one seems willing to give me a second chance.
MBBers, how did y’all prepare for case studies / interview process? Any discerning difference between how Big4 interviews are conducted?

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 ?

Currently interviewing with Deloitte S&O, what are the salary bands like for a consultant? They are saying they can't bring me in as a senior consultant because I don't meet the 5 yr work experience
Is there any protocol if your client on an active matter (and you feel like you've done good work) posted an open in house position you're qualified for? Interested but I don't want to burn the bridge on either side if counsel's feelings aren't reciprocated.
I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
