If I'm on H1B and start an MBA program in Fall 2018, can I quit early and take the summer off and stay in the States? Or would I have to go back to India for that period? OR is it better to keep working until the date on my new I-20? Purely from a legal perspective, not financial.
Does anyone have the 2020 SHRM books for sale or to borrow? My job won’t contribute towards my certification. I’ve already paid for my test. I have the books from 2015 but I’d like to study from the 2020. I tried finding them online to purchase but sellers of affordable books aren’t responding.
Just got my AWS Cloud Practitioner cert and am looking to get something more Strategy or Finance related. Anyone done any good Certs lately?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!
I have an offer from MBB at my MBA program but I’d lose my sponsorship with LEK if accepted (they won’t match it). Interviewed for exposure. How easy would it be to lateral to MBB after I put in 2 post-years with LEK? Are the cases a little more relaxed then? The FOMO😖
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
How seriously is McK’s ‘outside activities’ policy enforced? It sounds like P2P advisory like MBA / College admissions consulting would not be allowed… is that correct?

Considering leaving Bain with 2 years in SM role, HSW MBA, and 11 years since undergrad. Google role is non-technical Cloud Strategy. Unsure of title or level at this point - called "lead" but contact indicated flexibility. Would be remote in a non-SF/NY location. Mgr indicated it was technically an individual contributor role though I would be managing 2 people. What comp/level should I expect (Assuming L6?)? What is the significance of the IC role if I'm technically managing 2?

PE is notorious for being difficult to get into unless you’re coming from IB. However, there are success stories for consultants breaking into PE even without an MBA.

Offer from McKinsey BTO to join as EM. I'm a manager in big 4 up for promotion in a year. Should I take the offer? It's slightly junior (I probably won't get promoted to next level at McK in one yr)
We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
My firm recently removed the CPA requirement to make manager in FDD stating that it is following the market. Being a CPA is definitely better than not being one but will it hurt my exit opportunities if I decide to not pursue my license? Do companies outside of public accounting even care that much about having your license / are others seeing this same trend?
Need help comparing the offer. Trying to prioritize money and lifestyle OFFER 1: strategy role 370k (including base, bonus and equity) + some sign on + 401k. Legacy company, not sure if I will prefer to stay for more than 2 years; OFFER 2: 230k (base + bonus) + 125k equity/year (targeted liquidity event in 4-5 years) + some sign-on. I like the role in offer 2 more and the the company is growing 30-40% but startup life ain’t easy. Is offer 2 a better option or would you consider it very risky?
Hi all, Anybody from Deloitte who works on qliksense. I have an interview scheduled soon, so wanted to know what type of questions are asked. Thanks in advance.
Pregnant with verbal job offer - how to negotiate maternity leave? I am only a few weeks pregnant and I have a great job offer. There are two points I want movement on (1) equity (2) maternity leave. The company offers new employees with <1 year tenure 14-16 weeks unpaid mat leave (+ whatever I get from CA state short term disability program which is less than half my salary). This is a 300+ person unicorn company that is really excited about me. What’s worth pushing for here?
What firm are you at and what are the maternity leave benefits? We only get about 3 months using parental leave and short term disability paid at 100%.

Interested in working in PE, but experiences align more with the Ops side (3 YOE in strategic value creation). Is there a significant difference in total comp potential between ops and investments roles? Not sure how to make a case to break into investments with minimal DD experience, so thinking about Ops recruitment (Associate). Would also be grateful to learn about potential strategies non-DD focused consultants have used to ultimately break into investment teams.
My manager despises talking about the pandemic and WFH policies, he said to stop asking about it during a team meeting. Anyone else experience this kind of tone in leadership? Shouldn’t they realize it’s going to be a huge topic for years?
