Do not learn VBA. Its an overrated skill. The only companies that want it are dinosaur finance firms. They’ll have you spend all day building tech debt, using excel as a database. Stick to R/Python

Guys, need some help on salary negotiation tactics. I am new to consulting but have 10 years industrial experience and a MBA. Got an offer as M2 in Data Governance based in Dallas.

Again any sincere advices are appreciated!
