Bain is nonexistent - MB are good but if you’re focused in LS, no reason not to stay LEK/ZS/etc except for $… though that’s a pretty good reason admittedly

Thanks. Great perspective. Any other thoughts?

Depends on the work. If you want to be involved in CDD, market entry strategy, commercialization, you should stay at LEK. McKinsey has a particularly strong health tech, med devices, and pharma arm, but they do more traditional strategy and innovation projects (as a percentage of projects). You will do a lot of CDD at Bain (which should be a given), though I’m not convinced it is actually better. I don’t know enough about BCG though.

Hey fishies! I’m switching employers and need to pick my medical benefits. I’m looking at either the Aetna A3 EPO or the Aetna G3 POS because these are free (no cost to me). anyone have any advice? I’m 26M, no underlying/preexisting health issues. generally get a physical each year. The EPO is $0 deductible, but the POS has the HSA. is the HSA worth having a $2,700 deductible vs no HSA and $0 deductible? Thanks in advance!

Hello! I am stuck with a problem and need help. I've been working at a start up agency with good pay and benefits for the past 3 months. The problem is, I recently decided to move to another state for my sanity at the peril of losing this job. Upon hire, my CD informed me that the agency wishes to have mandatory in office visits about 2-3 days a week in the future. Now my q is - should i look for another job, then talk to the CD, or should i speak to them now. FYI I do wish to stay with them!

MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League.

I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?
