Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

We have Netflix in FAANG, yet don’t see much discussion about the company. What’s up with it?
Applying for a couple of things and randomly decided to google myself to see what recruiters might see. Had helped a friend out way way back with a school project and came across her blog post about it on her personal website in which she says the reason she asked me to help is because she trusted my opinion since I am a “harsh critic.” I think she meant keen critic or that this was supposed to be a positive but to me, this reads as an insult (continued in comments)

I was just offered a promotion to Sr Strategy Analyst and I’d like to negotiate the base comp from $109 to $116 at least. I would love to hear how others have navigated this conversation.

(This is a leadership rotational program so it shows I’m invested in the company.) 3. I didn’t rec a raise in 2020 bc Covid so at a normal rate I would be making ...

If my company doesn’t match 401k at all, should I pull the ~$4k out (with whatever fees that incurs for early) to fill 2020 & 2021 Roth IRA allocations before deadline is up?
I have been working at the same small firm for almost 9 years. If I were to interview elsewhere and reach the offer stage, I don't know what I can do about providing references. I wouldn't be able to share that I'm interviewing with my manager or even my peers. At my previous company, I was in a much more JR role - and I didn't have a tight relationship with my manager. Any suggestions - thoughts? Thank you so much!
Wonder if people who claim to be more effective and efficient thanks to WFH and wish to never go back to the office are the same people whose jobs are more likely to get off-shored/ outsourced? At the end of the day, if it's just a transactional, "follow-the script" kind of job requiring minimal interaction/relationship/collaboration with other team members, why would the companies be incented to keep paying salaries + benefits when they can just as easily ship these jobs overseas?
