Hi Fishes,
I have two years of MR experience and looking to switch to consulting roles. MBA from tier 2 college, so MBB isn't an option. Any additional courses I can do to maneuver this path? Suggestions welcome.

I have been licensed for almost 3 years as P&C- Life / Health General lines. I started in a State Farm office and was allowed 8 general leads a day (lucky if the phone number is working) then to call thru the book to generate life business and pivot to multi-line. I worked my tail off and became the top producer with an office full of boys (nothing against it just stating) I had to transition to another company and am thriving but wondering- is there more out there? But I have no women contacts

Is Applied Intelligence a good group under S&C? So I got an offer for the Consulting Development Program and I was then offered to be aligned under Applied Intelligence at a slightly higher salary.

So I’m just wondering if I should take the AI offer or keep my standard CDP offer.

Hi all 🙂👋🏻👋🏻 I received this offer today. Can anyone please tell how much is the fixed in this ctc?

Secondly, I will produce this as counter offer to IBM where I am offered 12.5 lpa fixed. Hence, would need to know the fixed amount as IBM gives counter offers only based on the fixed.

Any response taking your time out would be highly appreciated, especially on a monday! :)
