Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?
Received an offer from McKinsey & Company and am super stoked to join, but I’m getting quite criticized in my personal life for the decision mostly because of the public image of the firm. I get where they’re coming from, but figured most of the consulting industry was like this, not just McKinsey, and strategy work is what really interests me. Any tips on how to deal with it?

Since turning 25 my family is ON me to think about marriage. I’ve always struggled with the concept of marriage and truly always just dated for fun, with no end goal in mind. I am south asian and have somehow always dated non-south Asian men, but my culture is really important to me. I feel I have this idea that marriage is going to take away my independence and it’s never really appealed to me. How did you shift your perspective, if so? I am feeling pressured to start dating more seriously.

Hi Fishes, Capgemini has openings for multiple skills for experienced candidates If interested please let me know.
I am interested in pivoting from an agency into a traditional business consultancy role. I have start-up tech experience and four years of Strategy experience for media clients. Are there any projects folks in consulting would recommend I take on to add to build on to a resume? From the outside looking in, it seems like there is an overlap in the core competencies of a strong strategist at an agency and a consultant.
I’m coming back to my former job after 6 months and leaving my current position in one of the most toxic places I have ever been. Never thought I could be harassed in so many ways in such short period. Gladly, I left the door and they’re taking me back. Even though it’s a huge relief, I’m worried about how to explain to my coworkers why I’m back. I’m way too vulnerable to lay out the truth. Anyone here to give me a useful tip on how to handle this?
Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.
Traveling next week for a client after a long time. Booked a Delta Main Cabin ticket through concur. Now I am trying to upgrade to 1st using my points but the delta app shows all premium seats as unavailable. Usually it did let me change it in the past but not this time. Have Delta policies changed for ticket upgrades from Main Cabin to Comfort+ or 1st? I recall all DL Main tix were eligible for upgrade as a additional purchase option.

For Progressive car insurance, they offered to give me a discount if I used their Snapshot driving monitoring device for the policy period (half year). What is the highest score I can get? Is it A or A+? I remember this used to be only a 30 day evaluation, now it has become 6 months, wtf? I’m in NY state if that matters. I hardly drive my vehicles now and the rates are still about the same as pre pandemic. These thieves.

As an Indian visa worker in US, I feel Indian managers in ZS are very rude to me , one makes me work longer hours than white team members , never lets me present in workshops , and always criticizes. Last week I made a mistake in a internal report and he said that if I did that again he will book my flight to India. I have never faced this challenge with white managers. Is this a ZS thing or across all firms, I wish to leave because this treatment makes me feel like a lesser person
Is it wrong that I like when people leave or get fired? Not like I get joy from misfortune but I love the drama and scoop
I can honestly say that working from home these last few years has been the best thing that’s happened to my career as a producer. I never realized how distracting being in an office was. Now, I actually can focus on bidding, scheduling, reviewing contracts, and all of the stressful parts of production WITHOUT having to factor in code switching and a commute. I left my agency producer role for a fully remote producing role and I’m just….thrilled. Anyone else refuse to go back to office? 😩
I’m sorry if this sounds insensitive but does it look bad if one of my recommenders is laid off? I was about to ask for a rec but haven’t yet
