MBB folks, is it safe to assume that once you get the job then your compensation sets the base for the rest of your career and basically only goes up? This obviously excludes situations where somebody signs up for lower pay with a variable upside linked to certain outcomes, like startups.
What’s best path for an MBA application? Currently at Deloitte, will stay until 1-2 YOE and then exit to one of the following potential paths:
1. Stay at Deloitte until applying
2. Switch to MBB and then apply
3. Switch to FAANG and then apply
4. Switch to a “T2” tech firm and then apply
5. Quit and join/create a startup and then apply
For those who moved from T2 to MBB, which skills would you recommend working on while at T2 to make you more “desirable” for MBB?
Is there anyone here who did cbap certification through D USI. Can you tell whats the process.
What are some good extracurriculars to put on your MBA application? If not specific activities, what are characteristics that schools look for in your extracurriculars?

Hi all. What would you want in a care package from your boss?
My team is almost at a major deadline, and everyone’s been putting in nights and weekends over the past two months get here. I got budget to send them care packages. Thoughts on what you’d want?

Aww too cute!

If I want to produce my own film, should I partner up with a production company? The CEO likes my project but wants to help produce it, meaning he wants his vision to become a part of it. We'll see how this turns out.
I have a Masters and 8+ years working in an external relations role in a hospital. I have since moved to the payor side. Would it be valuable to pursue another graduate degree (MPH or Dr PH) in order to advance in the payor world or would more education actually hurt my chances?
By advancement, I mean I would earn the degree and then try to find a job at a competitor. My leaders either don’t have graduate degrees or they don’t seem to value them.

Work doesn't have to cater towards someone else's structure constantly. Find what works for you.
Being good at your job includes knowing how to maximize your efficiency, from knowing what times you are most productive, creative, responsive, and energetic.
Examples: Working remote vs. in office, scheduling important meetings in the morning vs. afternoon, creating more break times to walk around

There is no minimum score, everything has a certain weightage (in some cases it is explicit in others it is not)
For example a friend has a 630 GMAT who works at McKinsey but at same time has very good experience (8 years in pharma and health care , lot of promotions, very impactful work)
On the other hand I have a 760 , 3.8/4 and very average work ex (no big name company, couple of promotions) and I still interviewed with M and landed a job at K
I can confirm with A1.. it’s just another data point in the application process.
Not that I know of
Not more than which school you are getting your MBA … in my experience networking is was more important than test score when recruiting for consulting mba roles
