What are typical entry levels for consulting managers from the big 4 and EM/PL from MBB at Google? L5/L6 ?
Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
How is quality of life different of an MBB partner and a B4 partner. Is it really still a grind at MBB at that level? I have never seen a stressed MBB partner so not sure if it’s just a facade.

What other consulting firms have a prominent supply chain consulting practice besides MBB, the Big 4 accounting firms, and Kearney?
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
How do your companies recognize technical (e.g., STEM) accomplishments? I’ve heard of old school things like fellowships and “Distinguished Engineer” titles. Wondering what other places do now. I’m struggling to see where my path leads if I don’t want to be a people manager and instead focus on becoming a top technical IC instead. Are there clear paths for that anymore?
Grateful for my support system. I burst into tears during a zoom call with a project leader today. He said the sweetest thing anyone ever said to me in years. A quick catch-up turned into a therapy session.

Thoughts on investing into rental properties vs putting money into market?

Hey all, I left four shirts in the wardrobe of my room in a Sheraton. They’re saying they are not in lost and found but I am 100% sure they were in the room. One of the shirts has sentimental value...
What’s a reasonable answer when a small, independent agency asks what your desired salary is? Info on Glassdoor is limited given they’re all smaller. For context, I’m a junior with just a little over a year of experience so v green. Thanks!
I work near Detroit. My district says no masks are mandatory. My Open House seemed like a breeding ground for Covid germs. Plus with of course no A/C it was 110° in my room. Fun.
My start date isn’t until July 2021 the earliest for my full time job because of COVID, but I graduate in December 2020, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for temp/contract work to look for (or good places to find it). I’m from the Chicagoland area.
