Hey OP curious about your situation care to elaborate a bit?

You could ride the bench until you are let gone so you can collect severance and have a job lined up. What is D severance? It is just a thought to consider

Depends on the SL...last year/earlier this year there was literally nothing a new hire/2nd year could have done to get staffed considering there wasn't demand.

Not too much to elaborate on S&. I'm tired of long hours working in areas I don't enjoy. High performer but not interested fulfilled. I also recently got married and I'm just done with the travel. Wife has been begging me to look around and this just seems like the perfect opportunity since I will have free time for once

What level are you?

Consultant

Hi everyone! I need your help. I wasn’t looking for a new job but an interview at McKinsey just fell in my lap. I work at a big four firm and have never gone through MBB interviews before. I only have about two weeks to prepare. I’m going to do as much work to prepare as I possibly can but if anyone could help suggest a two week study plan that would be so helpful!

After a month of having to constantly ask about my onboarding, I finally was able to join. Now, it's been two weeks and no one seems to know how I get my laptop. With the support number I get an automated response of some mail I should have got which never came. I raise a ticket and they close it saying talk to the manager or onboarding advisor. There is no onboarding advisor and my manager asks me to go back to support. So, did I do something to offend the gods or is this hassle expected?

Hi all. I currently work as a postdoc at Fermilab (a national physics laboratory near Chicago). However, I want to make a career switch into data science.

Should I first apply, as a general consultant, to McKinsey/BCG & move into their DS teams in a couple of years, or are there entry-level DS roles for people with my background?
