How long should I stay at an “A-list” agency if I haven’t made anything worthwhile? It’s not for a lack of work ethic but a lack of luck with everything getting killed by client.
Hi all, I'm considering moving to the US from Europe. I've got 2 years of mgmt consulting exp at MBB and operating exp at a startup, and a European passport. Will I be at a disadvantage during the application process if I do require a visa in the US? If so, what are the options to break into the US? Targeting strategy and ops roles. Thanks for your tips!
On the flipside, who is the worst person you have worked with? Why? (Co-worker, client, manager, etc..)
How did you get an interview at MBB? Referral or online application? Or maybe contacting the recruiter on LinkedIn? I’m with 2YOE in healthcare/analytics consulting. Recently looking to move forward to MBB. Appreciate any suggestion!
Generally what percentage of MBA candidates with a 1R interview end up getting offers at MBB?
Was never the type to care so much about feeling out of place but the last few months since I joined MBB i've been finding more and more how the firm is full of rich kids with similar experiences and a shared network. It shouldn't matter, we're here to work, but I'm bothered anyway. Idk where I stand here -- cant blame them for having overlaps w each other -- but I feel very much excluded to say the least. Can't relate. Feels like it makes a steep slope to succeeding in consulting even steeper.
I've been a project/program coordinator for more than 8 years, but I can't say that I'm already an expert in this field. There were times that I thought that I was a beginner. Is there anybody here who feels the same way?
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Hi, I was on a production support project in Tech Mahindra and I switched to PySpark developer role in CTS. My CTC updated from 4 LPA to 12 LPA. I have 3.5 YOE. Can you please share your thoughts about this switch in terms of profile change and the CTC? Is PySpark developer same as a data engineer role? Thank you.

Dear FCB CHICAGO, you tout diversity but you let go of one of the only two black creative directors in your building today. This CD was good with the client, work and team. (Cont’d)
I'm actually the client. Need to hire a consultancy for a project (5ppl). Proposals were horrible. KPMG didn't have the staffing. PWC we cannot take since they are the auditor (somehow we didn't ask EY). Now I am stuck with Deloitte or a boutique. Thoughts? Senior management cannot decide. My team cannot decide. This has been going on for months. Thoughts?
Hi! I have around 13 months of exp in LTI. My current project assignment gets over by December. And I want to change role after 18 months. Is it a good idea to continue and jump to another project in the middle ? Or its better to sit on the bench until that happens? If latter is the case, how do I ask my manager to be benched after my assignment? I'm not sure how benching works. Do I get salary? Please help me understand
hi everyone! I just received an offer to join Deloitte Digital‘s client strategy consulting group at the SC-level for 140k with a 10K signing bonus. Is this on par with the rest of the firm or should I counter with a higher number? 3 Years of relevant experience. Thank you!￼
Debate: If you’re interviewing for a new position outside the firm and the interviewer is unavailable after your billable hours (staff augmentation project). Typically for appointments (dentist, doctor), we make up the time outside of working hours. Would you A) block off the time on your calendar as an appointment and make up the 30 min outside of normal working hours OR B) take 30 minutes of PTO for interview

Considering an offer at DoorDash but I’m curious about exits. Although it is a tech company, you’re working with restaurants and a delivery business for the most part. Technology at companies like Google and Apple are so different, I’m having a hard time seeing how my experience would be transferable. Anyone have any ideas on common exits after DoorDash?
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)

What motivates you to strive for more? Feeling comfortable yet sad.. I want more in life but need a new carrot at the end of the stick. What's yours? While growing up the fear of poor grades and not getting a good job out of college motivated me to justify suffering for more. Now that I'm in my late 20s, those are much less relevant.

I am good with where I’m at in my career for the first time ever. I’m learning, feel like I can fully support my team and maintain WLB. Someone told me if I’m not trying enough if I’m not trying to promo (it’s my first year at my level). Yes I want a promo, but I know I have a lot to learn before then and I’m on my way... I would hate to promo too early and screw over my team. Am I missing something? I’m anxious for some reason now.

Hi fishes , Anyone needs referral @Kpmg global services private limited. Feel free to reach out . Skills:
Is it possible for you & your partner to both be career driven/focused and be able to raise kids? My husband & I have 1 child so far & we want to expand our family with 1 more but I’ve been told from multiple people that 1 person usually has to back down & it’s usually the mom. We both have demanding jobs but we’ve made it work so far with scheduling & tag teaming activities/tasks related to our kid, dogs & home.
