Need some advice! I'm a recent PhD grad (30 yo) in STEM, and just got some offers from different companies. Particularly, two of them are interesting to me. 1) from a Energy Market Company in Pennsylvania as an Operations Research Scientist, 95k + 15% bonus + very good benefits and generous PTO. It's a very chill job (9-5) with good people but limited opportunity to growth. 2) from a consulting company in NYC as a data science consultant, 130k + 10k signing bonus. Which one you choose? why?

I’ve never been a regular vacation-taker, but now I’m resolved to become one. Especially because my company has an unlimited PTO policy. Would 4 weeks of total vacation per year be considered a lot/excessive at your company? I’m thinking of doing two one week vacations, and one two week vacation, and booking them far in advance.

Hi everyone, I have two questions: - In the US, how much importance is placed by MBB on GPA after 3-4 years of work experience? In case of a low GPA, does this weigh a lot or after a while do they almost only weigh work experience? What about for tier 2? - Is it feasible for MBB (or Tier 2)to be hired in the US directly from Europe, or is it better to transfer internally to your own company? Thanks to all
