I’m interested in exiting to product management/marketing roles in industry but I’m finding it to be very limited for people with <5 YOE and no MBA. Mainly still in consulting because you can make close/100k+ with 2-3 yoe. Are there roles that make 100k this early in career in industry or should I wait it out?
Going into second year as SC in FDD, is it too late to switch to IB that I should consider MBA since I’m starting to get into grey area between analyst / associate? Or will I just have to take my medicine and take a step down to analyst (which I’m fine with if needed)
I'm at a career juncture and have decided on a career in anti-money laundering as my new path. I'm also highly interested in additional education to further my career and am eyeing graduate school. Which is best? A law degree or a master's in international relations? Those are where my interests lie. I keep reading that JDs are valued in compliance but am wondering if a different graduate program is better for my goals. I already plan to obtain the CAMS certification. Thank you!
I’m 34, want to start a family within 2 years, have my CPA and new job has offer to pay for an MBA (if I want) which part time it would take me at least 4-5 years. Is it worth it? (I do internal audit for a pharma Corp, lot of places to grow within Acc or Finance group) not sure if having my CPA is just enough to keep growing professionally

I’m a nurse practitioner looking to make a complete career switch to consulting. I’ve seen a few healthcare consulting positions where I meet requirements but not a ton. I have interviews set up with McKinsey and Deloitte but I would love to know of any other consulting firms. I can’t seem to find anything at PwC, BCG etc. I have a master’s degree in nursing but no MBA. Please let me know if you have any advice on where to look for healthcare consulting opportunities!
I’m sure this varies but I’d be curious to hear a few takes: how formal of a “recommender packet” are you putting together? I’ve seen examples that are quite comprehensive with letter writing tips, summaries of questions asked by each school, in addition to examples of accomplishments and traits to write to. Both of my recommenders have MBA backgrounds and currently work with me, so I don’t want to make this overkill but want to make sure I give sufficient info as well
How much should I be making? I’ve been in corp. USA for 7 years, have an MBA, and multiple certs, but no clue how much I’m worth. Like many, I short-sale myself, and I feel it hurts my earnings. Is there a way to gain some transparency?

I am in my third year of practicing insurance defense, with a primary focus in worker’s compensation law. I work for a mill firm (case load and billable hour requirements are extremely high). I have been successful in billing above the required hours and handling the high case load, but I am burnt out. I am ready for a change and I am curious if anyone has specifically transitioned from WC defense to real estate planning/family law and thoughts on this jump in practice areas?
Question for everyone. I’m going through a retrieval cycle and 13 follicles were originally seen on the ultrasound and 13 again 8 days into taking the meds / injections. Is it fair to assume that’s how many eggs will be retrieved or does the number drop due to size or maturity of eggs when they actually go in there to retrieve them? Just trying to set my expectations. Thanks!

The lead of my previous project refused to support me for promotion because I decided to roll off from the project ( although I stayed in that project for 10 more months and handed over everything perfectly) and that lead gave me a hard time when I was about to leave (excluded me from key conversation and even humiliated me). Report to my mentor but he didn’t do anything about it. Honestly I am really hurt and depressed everyday. What should I do?
