I work for a small boutique consulting firm and have a job offer from a direct competitor. Although my coworkers are nice people, I don’t feel like I am a good fit for my current company. Anyone been in this position? How did you break the news that you are leaving for a direct competitor?

Hello All, I am working as business/product/data analyst for about 5 years now and thinking about transitioning into DS role. If I want to target one essential skill to learn this year, what would that be? Just like SQL and Excel would be essential skill for Data Analysis.

Let's start an argument. Working 100% remote absolutely downgrades your interpersonal relationships with coworkers, execs, and clients while also keeping you within your own bubble of assigned areas and not allowing you to hear conversations about other areas to develop you further. We need to be back in the office 3-4 days a week for our own best interest. Yes we've proven we can do audits virtually, but our staff have suffered tremendously in their development these past 2 years.

Ok I’m pretty sure everyone here has realized some decent profits from crypto. Personally, I’ve made 10x my current annual income and I see no more motivation to continue doing what I’m doing. Any words of advice? Is there any sense in keeping my head down and going back to work? I’m not sure where I go from here.

Started in a new role. It's become incredibly apparent how little I learned in risk and the learning curve is insanely steep. Leave ASAP if it's not for you, because the things you learn are useless unless you want to stay in compliance forever.

Late night thoughts - I cannot figure out when to throw in the towel on consulting. I just switched to a Big 4 role two weeks ago and I feel like my stress has shot up significantly. I hate traveling for work and I want a role with good WLB. I know two weeks is nothing and I feel like a failure for giving up so easily but I feel I'm just not made out for this kind of life. Should I just suck it up and stick it out for two more years for the exit opps?

Gratitude post! This time last year I was in a job that didn't value me at all and didn't support me as an individual. Decided to go out on a limb and apply for an MBA internship (doing my MBA part time). Saved up enough money and quit for the internship. Internship went extremely well and secured a full time role. There were so many obstacles to each step and I had to really humble myself but it was so worth it. Now I'm in a great place and 2x'ed my salary within a year. So blessed!

I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
