Staying at the Ritz Carlton - Dove Mountain, AZ for a long weekend. Before coming, I called and asked what the COVID restrictions were, I was given vague information and once I arrived realized that the restrictions were more stringent than described, and the only restaurant open for dinner service on hotel property is a mile away, near the golf course. When asking the hotel how we are supposed to get there for dinner, they told us that we would have to walk as they are understaffed....

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.

Just completed my annual benefits enrollment. I plan on going the entire year without ever seeing a doctor. New plan totally sucks. It was a choice between bad, worse and worst.

For those who’ve gone through the VC interview process, how would you recommend studying for technicals? Is it similar to IB/PE technicals? Or is there more of a focus on case interview technicals? Understand that it varies by firm but any perspectives would be helpful. Thank you!
