I’m seeing a lot of LinkedIn posts from Big4 interns who just completed their virtual internship. It’s like they’ve won an Academy Award. It is hilarious and at the same time 🤢. How is a 2 week virtual internship a life-changing experience? Is it worth the gushy thanks of support to everyone on their “journey”? I can’t stand LinkedIn.

I have mixed feelings. The braggy part is cringeworthy, but I think appreciation for the re-tooling that was required to do remote internships is nice.

They should celebrate! The amount that they got paid is coming from manager promotion raise, which is reduced to 7.5%!!.....yes yes partners took a pay cut. From avg $650 down to $600! How do live on that??? Is that even possible.

Tech or consulting long term?

Hey folks! I’m a SWE intern this summer and I’m deciding between going for consulting or product management. I went to a lot of MBB events and met some great consultants, I also like the variety of work and exposure to clients that consulting offers. Product is because I don’t like coding all day, I prefer working with different types of people, and building products seems pretty cool.

Any advice on which career is better long term? Thanks!
