Case in point and just basic business knowledge is more than enough for bcg! Just learn how to be coherent and organize your thoughts... wish i followed my own advice lol

What level are you applying at? And is it for a specific practice? What geography?

Find a friend that’s interviewing and do cases with each other. LOMS is helpful, but don’t memorize frameworks.

I’m well aware of LOMS and CIP. Was wondering about sources beyond that

I am in the midst of interviewing at 3 different agencies right now. I had my second interview with one agency on Friday and my first round for the other 2 this Wednesday. I would like to interview for the other 2, but am wondering how to maneuver the 1st place, while still being respectful. To be clear, I just want a chance to see what the other 2 say without being pressured to sign an offer letter (should the occasion arise) if they need it before Wednesday. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

How to quit my job? Been here <6 months, I’m the midst of building the team, recently made offers to bring new talent to join my team, finalized 2022 strategy.

My Senior Manager & Partner are basically “forcing” us to take vacation during the week of 20th Dec and 3rd Jan. They’re saying if we don’t have billable work (even though we’re available to work), we should use vacation days instead of charging time to a GA or PRD code. Is this even legal? I was supposed to go home but can’t because of travel bans. I want to save my vacation days so I can go home in April, not take vacation to sit at home. How do I navigate this?
