How many years of modeling experience in B4 to make Associate Level at an investment bank (no mba)?
Hi all! Looking for advice! Im starting at an MBB out of undergrad (interned at D). Met my cohort and coworkers tonight at happy hour. Everyone’s super nice but I can’t help but feel drained. A partner probably noticed that I was nervous and actually pulled me aside to tell me it’s ok etc. I’m obv grateful for the opportunity but just worried i will be seen as too introverted or not confident enough and be a problem in front of clients. My MBTI type is also “not consultant-y”. Any advice? TIA!
Best luggage for travel? Just got consulting job at MBB and looking to buy some new stuff.
Does anyone know of recruiting firms with a focus on Anti-money laundering? I’m foreign educated and newly admitted NY attorney with CAMS certification but living in Miami lol. I’m here, because my husband practices in SoFlo. Any recommendations? I don’t have any experience but have CAMS.
What happens if you quit and your firm paid for your cpa prep? Do I have to pay my firm back or do I not have an access to cpa prep course? I’m going to ask my firm before I quit but want to make sure I’m not expecting to spend 3k before I quit

OTS is growing rapidly and leadership has asked us SMs to assist with recruiting. One of our needs is for cybersecurity and data privacy consultants interested in M&A e.g. CISSP, CISA, CIPP, CIPM, etc
Who has a better chance to get into MBB or AlixPartners ? An EYP manager or an A&M manager !
How do you handle when one Big 4 firm is trying to move really quickly through the interview process but I am also progressing through the process with an MBB as well that I really want to see through to the end. At the end of the day I don’t want to lose the Big 4 firm if MBB doesn’t come through.
Thoughts on the CPHIMS certification? Valuable or just another cert cash grab from HIMSS?
I'm going to be going to MBB over the summer as an intern. I'm also very interested in investing and buy side roles - what are the options I could look at for full time coming from my MBB internship?
Okay 🐠 I need your input on two scenarios I have. 1 - Join EY cloud strategy as SM working under two partners and with 2 other SMs (will be partners in the next 2-3 years) that I know well; with a fast track to partner for myself. Or 2 - Join BCG DV at EM level and work towards partner level there. Completed final interview last week and got positive feedback. I don’t think there’s a wrong answer, but I have the EY offer in hand, comp difference is negligible.
Why do you feel like this year is so much harder than previous years? This year was supposed to be easier than last year and it’s not 😭 The only reason I can think of is we didn’t have enough time to rest after last year. The only solution I can come up with is giving teachers more time to get things done. What do you think the solutions are to fix this or what has your school already done? My school/district/admin is amazing and they’re wracking their brains to figure it out.
Which advanced non-MBA degrees are the most common at your firm? If recruited from a grad program with a non-MBA degree, did you start at the same level, salary, compensation track as an MBA recruit?

Does your company's health plan cover infertility treatment? If so, what is the lifetime cap if any? My company just implemented a cap—admittedly we were lucky before—but this new cap of $30k only covers ~$6k in medical expenses (another ~$23k in prescriptions) which wouldn't even get us through one IVF cycle (extract/implant once).
