Hi! I'm a ssc wanting to switch projects but worried I won't find anything fast enough to keep up utilization. How long can you be looking (on the bench) before it's an issue ?

Hey there - you should be searching for a project while currently on a project, and work with your current project and new project on a transition timeline. Voluntarily rolling off a project with nothing lined up is a bad idea and sort of frowned upon - we are paid to be generating billable work after allZ

I’m looking for recommendations for a bench top bandsaw. I’m willing to invest in a nicer one down the line, but right now I want to keep it under $300. I mostly see Powertec, Shop Fox, or Wen. There is a $375 Grizzly I’d consider if it’s way better than the others. Any thoughts?

Can you negotiate higher pay (either at a new job or for a raise) based on your academic pedigree? If so, how can you do this without sounding elitist? Meaning, if an employer possibly picked you as an Ivy League/Top 20 Public flagship university degree holder, how do you acknowledge this in salary negotiations? Especially asking because these people often have more loans compared to someone with an online degree for example.

Didn't end up making the cut in Strategy consulting case interviews. Would really like to do strategy / S&O some day. I love using data to inform decision-making. Wondering if it would make sense to continue consulting in implementation then try to pivot again in the future or at another level - or drop consulting & try to get a strategy job at a startup or maybe do something else at a larger company and try to pivot internally. Background is tech + MBA. Any insight appreciated!
