I exited to Google a few months ago. I’m enjoying my Strat role, based in Mountain View. However I still have thoughts of an MBA, mostly because it feels like I’d be missing out if I didn’t do one, not like I actually need one. I just turned 25, so I’ve got a little time. Curious to hear your thoughts if I should do one or not.
I’m planning to take the GMAT sometime soon. I’d have to take a PTO for it. Should I tell my PM the real reason of taking the PTO or should I keep it on the down low? (cont’d)

This week's tech mention is Piktochart. I came across these guys yesterday and I am stoked about it. If you look they help you build professional infographics. I like to use infographics as a leave-behind from my sales presentation. The flyers help my customers sell the solution up to management. The problem I have is I am not artistic. This service looks like it will allow me to take my ideas and put them in a format worth sharing. Go give them a look.
Who’s working on a car account and watching their agency crumble? Countless number of layoffs this year, budget cuts and tiny raises. 😣
Do you adjust your 401k contribution during the year based on the market condition? For example stock market is significantly down now, I’d like to maximize contributions now and lower contributions
This week's tech/tool review. is Mind Meister. I use this tool to form a "brain map" of my sales process. I keep a template map and when I get a new deal of significance I use it to make a new map. Since I am process-driven these maps help me keep track of what part of the sale cycle I am in. It also allows me to review past engagement to see how I can make my future pursuits more successful. Give it a look.

Mbb in an “bottom tier” city (say Detroit or buffalo) or atk, s&, etc in a nicer city (say Dc, chi, or nyc). Just curious. If age matter, say pre-mba - tell me what you’d do in your situation.
