Already 3 years into the management consulting business, still worth it to go get a MBA at a top 20 school if I want to continue in this field?
I have the option to be sponsored by my firm. However, is it a bad idea to take it and list it on my application if my post-mba goal would be to do something else after graduation? Would that be off-putting to schools since sponsorship implies that you’d be returning?
Everyone got >10% raise and I got 6%?! Wtf
What is the extent of details revealed in a background check? If I left voluntarily vs was let go - does that show up in a background check? Long leave of absence say 6 months (health or parental leave or just personal leave) - does that show up? Which specific teams I worked with or what kind of projects I worked on? Past promotion dates?

Am a Cybersecurity Associate Consultant with 3 YOE. Currently am working on L3 role. Have got an offer from IBM for the band 06A and L1 role. In the interview manager said as I don't have any relevant certification and my explanation could be theoretical, so he can only consider me for L1 roles. And I need to network within the organization to work as a L2 that too after 6 months of joining.
Is 06A right band for me, how should I negotiate to review my band after accepting the offer
Incoming MBA, I have my tuition paid for and rent covered (I will be an RA). So the only thing I need to pay for is food and entertainment. Do you think 20k is enough to last me through the 2 years? I will make a little money interning in the summer, so that would be a safety valve if I blow through the 20k.
Or… should I take a small loan?
My milestone year is FY23 but my coach is not in support for my promotion due to absurd reasons (YOE). I want to change my coach. Will there be any adverse impact? And how to change the coach? Please guide. TIA Deloitte

Looking for advice, I’m in my first FT job post grad. I’ve been in my role for almost a year, but interned at the company in college too. I really like my agency (not necessarily the account) but another agency recently reached out to me for an AE role. I don’t want to leave my agency but wondering if I should still interview with the other company? I’ve been doing AE level work for a long time and want a promotion, but I feel guilty interviewing elsewhere. Thoughts? Advice? Thanks in advance.
Has anyone ever felt lost after first year of consulting coming from technical background? I felt like my career pre-MBA was solid and clear, but now I’m not sure where to take it to the next level and prepare. I mean the M7 MBA and consulting exp should lead somewhere higher/better than before supposedly but I’m unsure how to position myself. How should I start thinking/structuring this?
I get crazy anxiousness when my best friend hangs out with other people. I’ll wonder how she knows them, why I wasn’t invited, etc. I know it sounds like I’m obsessed, but I’m not...it’s just this fear of missing out, of being a loser and secretly annoying(like she doesn’t like me). Any advice?
