Post-MBA Salaries for strategy consulting in Paris / Madrid / Amsterdam / Zurich?
Looking at MBB , T2, Deloitte and Accenture. Any other EU cities would be nice too.
Hi! I work in an OIG. What other roles within the government would be an easy transition from auditing, as a 13? For background I worked as a manager at a Big 4 in Risk/Internal Controls and a smaller firm auditing contracts and grants.
Other than Big 4 and probably RSM/BDO/Grant Thornton, which public accounting companies are open to transfer H1-B visa? I am in Tax.
Does MBB place new hires (with 3-4 YOE) into experienced analyst/associate roles? Or is it worth applying directly to the traditional consultant role (post MBA). I graduated in 2018 currently working at a startup in BizOps and wanted to explore realistic opportunities to break into MBB without an MBA
I have 2-3 years of experience as a tech PO, pretty early stage in my career.
Please help me compare tech roles in big 4 vs financial services in terms of culture, work life balance etc?
Hyderabad-based tech firm Cloudgen admits to H-1B visa fraud.
What’s the best way to pivot into an auditing and GRC role from a more technical role? I am working with a big 4 as a system admin and I am sick of this 24/7 grind. I would love a more stable work life balance but I feel like I’m pidgin holed in my current role.
Thinking of writing goals for my current role (started last month). What are you all doing for your professional development? I already have my MBA, PO/PM and Scrum Master certs.
I’m starting studying for the Salesforce Admin certification.
Who needs a study buddy or who has advice on how to get started and what will help me pass this exam??
Do any of the FAANG companies sponsor new H1B visas? I am on L1 visa and want to change companies but see no option :(
I am studying for MBA and need 3 books. They are very expensive to buy, so I am wondering if any of you have access to a soft copy that you can share.

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?
Hi Everyone - Need some insights. My PERM process was started by company in Feb’22 (currently awaiting wage determination, submitted to DOL in May’22). Its been months and DOL is working on requests from Jan’22. My H1B expires for good in Oct’23 (with all the recapture). Is there any chance I’ll have my PERM completed by then? For those of you who have been through this process, what was the overall timeline like?. Appreciate any insights you can help provide! TY!
Flying out to Athens in September. Managed to get tickets eligible for upgrades. I’ll be Platinum with Delta by the time our flight goes but my SO will not. What’re the chances we get upgraded? Or should we look to just pay the $3k per ticket to fly Delta One? It’s her first trip abroad and our tickets right now only cost us $800 + points through Chase.
Does anyone know the EY corporate code for the Marriott? And if another big 4 corporate code will the overseas hotel ask for identification?
Do you pay your credit cards in full every month?
I ask because I’ve let my credit spending get a bit lax since moving and adopting a puppy recently, so I haven’t been paying them off in full every month like I used to (though still well above the minimum payment, and keeping utilization at 30% or under). It got me thinking about how many people adhere to this advice.
Thoughts on highly specialized/niche industry investment bank? (Or financial institution in general)
Here are my thoughts:
- industry specialization from junior level
- tends to be smaller firms -> has room to learn
- some firm does not put junior folks into one biz line (i.e. IB, trading, investing) -> exposure to different stuff
- everything above
My mid and long term goals are to get an MBA and to exit to the industry/startup/maybe PE. Make sense to work at these niched firms?

I am picking up my entire life and moving to be with my boyfriend next May. I do love and trust him but I still have such high anxiety about moving from a small office to a much bigger one in my company and leaving my friends and family (who I am esp. close to). We plan to move back to where I live in a few years when we’re ready to plant roots but any advice on how to ease my nerves?
My husband never reads and wants to start reading as a new hobby. What is a good book that you would recommend for a 40 year old man? Not self help books, but maybe something with action. I think he would like the Bourne series, but he saw all the movies so he's not interested, but something similar.
I started dating this guy some months before covid struck.. he was literally crazy about me. He even stayed in Hyderabad for months just so that we could meet once before he went on to stay with his family. After that it had been a real roller coaster. He pampered me a lot before and now he hardly talks. We both have switched to different companies (earlier were in the same) and now he works 6 days a week. Sleeps or Vists his relatives or works on Sundays. Sometimes I feel he no longer loves me.
