Have any American MBB consultants gotten staffed on long international projects in big/fun Japanese cities? That would be the dream if I could get on a project like that post MBA with per diem

Yes. Cross office staffed from the US. Died. The work culture there is no joke

You likely won't see the light of day and will be too tired to even shower on weekends, so I'm not sure how fun it will be. As BCG2 said, the work culture is.. intense, to say the least. However if you do an office exchange and end up on the beach for a while because you don't speak Japanese, that's pretty bomb.

It happens. Pretty sure none of us have per diem though

Amazing experience, but working there is very difficult - expectations of very long hours, resistance to change, lots and lots of planning and details that in most other parts of the world won’t be needed upfront. Still loved I though. Not MBB, but in Deloitte we often have project opportunities there in various industries.

You do realize MBB and other strategy groups work 50-100% more than you do, right? I know a number of people at Slalom and the work/life balance is awesome. MBB in Japan has to be nuts though...

I was for a little bit in Osaka. It was a short engagement so it was crazy hours.

I've got an interview for a contract that would give me a 60% bump in pay
My current manager asked what they were offering and if there was anything he could do to make things better where I currently am. There is no way they can match the offer, but I'm a little worried about leaving a permanent full time with benefits and vacation time. What's my best move? Ask for 20% and be happy with 10%? Aim higher?

For the record I just barely make living wage as is so it's not going to be massive jumps

Posting here since I know I’ll get shamed further in other bowls and I’m already feeling shame.

This stems from letting other people down in previous jobs or in academic spaces, turning work in late, or turning work in that’s poor quality.

It ends up being a self fulfilling prophecy. I was told I have a month or so to complete a project, and now I’m week 6 on it and not done. Advice?
