Hi Sarah, Thanks so much for taking your time to answer our questions! What is the number one trait you look for in a junior strategist to join your team?

Is the work life balance at MBB perceived to be better, worse, or the same as the other non-boutique consulting firms?
I interviewed with the client and it has been a couple of weeks since I’ve heard from the hiring manager (3 weeks since 2nd interview). I’ve already informed my engagement team. I was told that they would inform me if there was a decision made and I’ve known previously that the offering process at this company can take up to a month. Should I reach out again for status update or wait to hear back from hiring manager?
Started career in consulting, went to industry, now back in consulting as a senior industry expert. No sales targets. Being heavily recruited by another firm to join as a partner and build a practice. 100% comfortable with everything in the role except selling.

Trigger warning: abusive relationship ISO advice on addressing a (very) bad undergrad year due to abuse in personal essay. I’m taking on my MBA as I was laid off due to COVID-19 and the market is tight out there right now. One thing that’s always held me back is that I had a horrible senior year, which killed my otherwise stellar GPA.

How much in advance before a project ends do you start reaching out to your network to get staffed on the next one?
