True story here: I was a first year AC (or analyst to be comparable to other firms). It was the end of the year, a few weeks before my final review. I was in a meeting room with my supervisor (a senior consultant), the partner, a C-Level client and three of her managers. I was about to present her the results of the project. Then I plugged my computer to the projector and my wallpaper was on the big screen - a photo I took at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. In the 0.5 second between my wallpaper shows up and I press F5 to start the presentation, the partner said: "look at that picture! If you can't make it to consulting, you should try to be a photographer". A great way to kick off the meeting lol.

Left Deloitte for greener pastures about 3 years ago. When I joined another company after my departure, the partner from the project which fed into my decision me to leave D was stalking my LinkedIn profile. Now that I’m at McK he is still stalking my LinkedIn profile. Again, this person’s behavior played a significant role in my decision to depart D. Should I reach out to him in a friendly way to probe/see what he wants? is his behavior strange? He didn’t seem to care about me when I was @ D.

Indecisive about relocating to Bangalore and applying for a relocation to Kolkata instead.

FOMO the life/culture in Bangalore and job opportunities there, are the reasons why I haven't asked for a location change yet. I anyways plan on moving to Bangalore once I can afford it. What would be a better pick?

Bain PEG is commercially stronger but heard it doesn’t make a meaningful difference. Think BCG in general has a slightly larger reputation, esp. internationally. What factors should I be considering?
