Haha I was also joking as I fully respect OW 😉

A good number of my colleagues have even jumped for promotions to all 3 so 🤷🏾‍♂️...

It’s a pretty common move, from S& at least.... can’t speak for the other T2s. There’s this misconception that referrals help... they don’t unless it’s from someone extremely senior

What level are you?

Bain just reached out to me too but not interested. It really depends on the situation. I have it good here... might consider if BCG due to their culture

Ok... cool. Just based on what I directly hear from friends. You're good to take your own opinion. This is my basis and sticking to it.

funny

How do you go about getting a referral? Do you cold network with consultants or recruiters?

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions?

I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.

Do any of you feel like the focus on mental health in schools is disingenuous and handled poorly?

I also feel as though many schools are doing more damage than good by not follow real evidence-based strategies by clinical psychiatrists to help these children.
