For the crowd: Is an MBA increasingly a worthless degree? @Deloitte: How much is that paper degree needed to move from Consultant to Sr. Consul. and Sr. to Manager?
When you pick up an MBA candidate who is recruiting for your firm. Hmm what was that compliance training again?
All my MBB friends are the same... Prep School, Ivy League, and on their way to an MBA 😝
Anyone take the Microsoft 346 and 347 exams for the MCSA Office 365 solutions associate certification.l?
Reasons why to go and get an MBA? Worth it?
What do you guys think about people putting credentials in their email signatures and/or LinkedIn profiles? Eg, CPA, MBA, PhD, etc.?
Cancelled flights, 2-city week, major deliverable due, and MBA final exams this weekend. Anyone else ready for next week?
Anyone studying for their CISSP?
Trying to figure out what I want to do with my life is like studying for the CPA Exam: you think real hard for ten minutes and get drunk in frustration when you get nowhere. #ForeverAnAccountant
I've always wanted to do a full-time MBA program. Considering part-time program now (top 20). I know the advantages/drawbacks of both, but at the end of the day, does it really matter? FT v PT?
Know we've seen this before... What do MBA campus hires get paid to start with PwC? What did you start at, when did you start, how much prior work experience did you have?
After traveling every week minus PTO for 3 years, just got the word current project will allow some remote weeks! 🙌 hello work-life balance!
Currently being offered a strategy role for which I don’t think I’m 100% qualified for. It’s a step up from my current role and responsibilities. I know the basic elements to execute, and have a strong foundation, but in this role, I’ll be expected to lead engagements, manage staff etc. There’s going to be a huge learning curve. Not sure if I should accept or not. I know this can be huge for my career. If someone has been in this situation before, please share your thoughts.
Hey folks, I am at final stages for external hire to PPMD at D, EY and PwC right now. Before I spend too much time chasing all 3, would love to get an opinion on pensions. I am hearing structures that are conflicting across sources. Can you tell me which one is correct? 1. TOP 5 years salary averaged out, and then 30-40% of avg paid per year. 2. LAST 3 years salary avg, and then 50% of avg paid per yr. 3. 100% of avg of LAST 2 years salary avg.
Which big 4 firm has the highest/lowest quality consultants? Worked with some EY consultants and honestly not very impressed.
My day has arrived. Today, I, a Tech Advisory Consultant, was smacked by a surprise afternoon layoff call. I was assured my PA review was nowhere near bottom 5%, but the machine of Accenture has inscrutable ways of determining High Performance. All ends are beginnings,
How can I transition from tech consulting to product management without an mba? Thanks everyone for your insights
I’m looking to break into MBB from another consulting firm. Is there any certification that would strengthen my application? I understand that having one wouldn’t hurt, but is there one that would make my application stronger?
Best remote collaboration and productivity apps/tools? Have heard Miro, mural, any others?
MBB - when you exit after 2-3 years out of MBA or as an Associate. Where did you go and how much were you paid? Trying to see the difference between your exit ops and Accenture pay wise.
I’m looking at mutual funds or fixed income products with low expense ratios to off set my monthly expenses. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.
So.. I was told 2 fridays ago by a recruiter that I they would reach out to schedule the first interview in 1-2 weeks. Just heard from her today that “things have changed” and they’re moving fwd with other candidates. I even have a strong referral to this firm — what should I do?
Those that have been laid off this year, how’s ur job search going so far? I just got laid off, and just started my search. With the upcoming holidays and Covid, I am getting a bit nervous...
Anyone work at salesforce? Is it run like a major tech firm or more traditional corporate?
Don’t you hate client dev stints where you work solo with a partner in another time zone who just isn’t responsive?
Was laid off from D recently and have been interviewing primarily for strategy roles. Curious for any advice converting in final rounds. I have been through several at this point and not gotten the offer. Received very positive feedback from the teams about my performance but in each case they said it was very competitive and ended up going with someone with slightly more direct experience. Tough to go through several 6+ week multi round processes and not convert. Any help or advice appreciated!
