Just got an offer to join an mbb from Deloitte. I have 3 years of exp and have been working on b school apps and was planning on going after 4 years. Is it worth it to go (it’s a BA role) or should I apply post mba and try as an associate?
I’m 26, worked in investment management for 3 years and saved about $81k. I don’t feel fulfilled at all. Feeling pretty depressed lately and incredibly lost and really want a change. I feel behind my peers who seem to have it all figured out so neatly. Not sure whether to go back to school, just find a new company, or take time off to travel.

People have short memories. Here is a picture of the havoc Delta variant wreaked in India a few months ago. We are not far from this in the US if the vaccination rates don't increase.
People here defending not taking vaccines and not wearing masks just amazes me. Folks here are devoid of basic thinking let alone critical thinking.

I completed the last round of an interview (presentation) last week. Originally they said they would be calling my references & then make an offer accordingly.
Today they updated that they'd like me to travel to their HQ (based in Nordics & I'm in London) for the final round where I'd meet the CEO, the hiring manager and a couple of people in the team.
I don't think I'm the only one in the process - even though initially the last round was the presentation.
What are your thoughts?

If anyone is thinking about going on flex time, I would highly recommend it. It might not work for everyone, but my experience has been a positive one. I took a 20% pay cut along with 20% reduced hours. I am able to support my family with that income and my firm respects my limited hours, but I still need to plan to make sure I can complete tasks in my reduced hours too. Anyways, if you like what you do, but don’t like the long hours and can take a pay cut, I would do it.
Should I tell my manager I am on antidepressants? Took my first dose of anxiety/antidepressant medicine this weekend and noticed I was left feeling very sleepy and lethargic. Worried this will be the case for the next few days/weeks. Need to do this for the next 2-6 weeks apparently before I switch to anything and I worry that my performance at work will drop. Should I tell her or is it none of their business?

Keen to chat with someone at PEG at Bain
A friend received feedback after his McKinsey case interview saying some of his answers were not “detailed enough”. He stated that he had 4-5 discussion points around each topic area and the interviewer never asked him to clarify or go into detail. Has anyone received that feedback before and how did you improve the next time?
