I want it bc I have a masters in international affairs and it's useless...on a data science/analytics track now and feel like I won't be taken seriously.

DD1- do you know this from personal experience or the experience of colleagues? Just asking bc was hired bc of my interest in data science, but none of my projects are giving me new experience beyond MS Excel and some SQL. Has seemed impossible to get on the "right" projects for career progress.

On the job training will always be better than school. Have you reached out to folks who do that work at BA? Also are there any trainings that BA offers?

If you have no background in doing modeling, MOOCs would be most helpful. If you want to do more “hardcore” data science and get deep into the math, then going back to school for a masters would be helpful. MOOCs is more than enough for consulting

Hi all, I have an offer for 63k in the Phx office for entry level tech consulting. Just wanted to know if I should negotiate for a higher salary or potential sign on bonus. I was also curious about the promotion structure for the company. To my understanding, promotions are more frequent than B4 due to it being smaller in the consulting world and was wondering how long it would take to hit senior consultant and manager levels.

My BF of 3 yrs is everything I dreamed of. But, we are very different. I love to travel, date nights, etc. but he rather stay home & not spend a dime. It’s gotten to a point where I am the only one planning things & when we I tell him the plans, he doesn’t care to do it. Once we are out on a date night, he makes it miserable by complaining & wanting to go home. I don’t see myself being with someone who hated doing these things. It has caused major issue. I don’t want to settle..& want to end it.
