Trying to decide between fin reporting job at company about IPO in 1-2 years or MBA school at SMU. What do u guys think?
Im a M at a Big 4 firm working M&A strategy. 10+ YOE, no MBA. I got here with an engineering degree. 200k+ TC. I’m considering a MBA, in fact, I got accepted to a top 20 school and will start part time in just over a month. Is it necessary at this point? Im already doing the work and learning what I need on the job. Do I need to put the stamp on it and make it official?
Feeling stuck in my role, but unsure of my next move. Move agencies? Stick to social/PR? Acct mgmt? Get an MBA to become an eventual brand mgr? I’m so overwhelmed and feel like I have to specialize.
Hi Everyone! I’m torn between which HR certification to pursue (SHRM-SCP or SPHR). Which one would you recommend and why?
Should I get PMP certified?
Considering consulting post-MBA and targeting MBB/Deloitte. What are pros/cons of being a post-MBA consultant at one of these firms?
Stats: 21y/o Asian female, nontarget public uni (think t100), 3.7, good story, 760 gmat For EC’s, will being social media famous help me at all? im very active in a few nonprofits (not for MBA programs but I grew up poor so it means a lot to me) i currently have a decent following on diff platforms (32k on ig & 94k on tiktok) and am thinking that i could turn this into a good EC if i devote more time into it. I’m aiming for HSW in 5 years and need something to differentiate myself.
Headed to a T2 this summer for my MBA internship. Thinking of rerecruiting for MBB in the fall. Anyone know how recruiting might look this year post-COVID? Thanks in advance!!
Should I open a 529 or a taxable brokerage account? Might go get an MBA down the line, but also would hopefully be with a company that would pay for it.
Hello team I am SAP Security Consultant. Let me know how can I prepare for CISA certification ?
Anyone currently pursuing or completed a part time MBA program while still traveling? How manageable is it?
No interest in IB/MBB/PE/VC but I love learning and school, and would love to learn from some of the best professors as one day I want to teach as well. Getting M15 MBA still justifiable?
Prepping for AWS Cloud Practitioner cert. Any suggested on sample test questions that best represent the exam?
Debating getting a certificate in either AWS, Azure, or GCP. Which one should I choose and why? - AWS is the market leader - Microsoft is a trash factory, but apparently used by 80% of F500 companies - GCP is apparently way easier to learn and use Thanks!
What is the the exit comp range for a Senior Consultant / Manager (post MBA)? More curious about the high end. My guess is ~150 - 300k total comp.
Anyone take courses/get a degree from Harvard Extension School? Experience? Was it worth it? Are you also able to build a network? Realize it’s not like an MBA, but that doesn’t fit my life now .
Any recommendations on online masters!not an mba, and poor undersgrad gpa-2.8.would prefer anything related to computer science, math or stats
Thinking about going for the 1-year mba since I know exactly what I want to exit to and would like to save money if possible. Are there drawbacks I’m missing that make a 2-year worth it?
Actively looking for an HR generalist role! Does anyone know any roles opening up soon in your companies? My background: have a BBA in HRM, MSHRM, and SHRM-CP certification. One year and a couple of months in EY’s People Advisory practice, and some HR internship experiences. I’ve done work with the talent team on my projects in the past. I’m looking to go internal ASAP so let me know if you have advice or know of any roles opening in your company 🙂
Anyone from EY been notified of H-1B selection in the second lottery? Seems EY Law Canada is OOO for some Provincial holiday till August 3rd.
How does Partnership work? Do you really need to buy into it, if so how much is the buy in and what are the perks of getting admitted to the partnership? Asking for both, Big4 and/or MBB.
Was it a weak year for vendor holiday gifts?
Deloitte Digital folks: When‘s the best time to apply to junior roles? Only have a year of experience and every role on the career page now is for SCs/Ms, directors, or specific school hires.
How much do y’all tip your practice lead? (MD/Partner). I did 12% of pre tax pre bonus salary last year but I heard other people in my office only tipped 5%. What do other 🐠 think?
Is there an option or add-in for Outlook that automatically reduces the font or zoom for emails received from specific people that are typing large?
Accenture digital fish. What percentage was your bonus? I found out my bonus numbers but I had left in October. I was a level 9 and got 4%
How was your mental health before advertising?
Ahhhhhhhhh!!! BCG interview coming up. Whose got tips? I understand the mechanics of nailing an interview but if anyone could provide info on criteria and evaluation that’s be gr8
For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
What should technology consulting interns receiving full time offers expect to be offered salary wise in a full time offer from different big 4 companies?
Is it hard to get into big tech from big 4 tech consulting after 3+ years? I tried at 2 yoe and didnt get any FAANG interviews. I was also targeting data analytics roles and it seems pretty tough. No referrals... I will try again in probably a year but really hoping to hear some success stories. All my offers were in consulting 😭😭😭😭
Does anyone think Zoom Calls are actually counter-productive, and wish we could go back to regular conference calls?
Any MBB folks willing to do a referral?
Anyone interview with via? How is it
Don’t hate on me plz. I’m planning to get an online or hybrid MBA with focus on information systems. I studied and worked in Control Systems Engineering and got into consulting at 27, manager at big4 now(33). My focus is to simply get better at what I do as I rise up the ladder. Would really appreciate any schools one can recommend. I didn’t grow up or studied in USA so really not sure which colleges might be better (?) than others.
Good news and bad news: We are expecting our first child in the next 2mo. Sadly, we’ve also just lost a close family member. As a result, we’ve come into a little money and would like to put maybe $10-15K aside to start a college savings for baby. Does anyone have experience with this? What’s the best way to go about it? I’m not hugely familiar with this, but want to make sure I understand the fees and taxes that may be affiliated with different options. Would be grateful for any insight!
