What is the difference between an Associate Consultant role (in MBB) vs. a Consulting/Business Analyst role (in McK/Big 4/ACN)? Would the former be a step up from the latter, or they are lateral?
Folks I am from Germany. I have seen MBB hiring culture is very diff than from the US/UK. For consulting roles whether be strategy/implementation/sector-specific they prefer folks with Masters or Ph.D. rather than MBAs from top B schools around the globe. Is it true?
Does anyone work at Hulu or Roku? I'm trying to transition into Product Management. I see both have lots of open roles. What's the culture like there? Are they open to hires with a non-traditional career path? I have tons of experience and success but not necessarily as a proper "Product Manager".
I have 6+ years of work experience working as an Ops Manager in a 3pl company doing last mile deliveries. Highest level of education is MS Supply chain management from UMD.

Or are there any other firms who focus mainly on Supply chain and logistics consulting? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company Deloitte EY PwC Kearney

Any tips on how to best give notice? I’m currently at a V10 and moving to another V10, primarily due to my team’s toxic culture and lack of mentorship or development.

Should I wait another year or two?
Looking to leave big4 and return to the practice of law, preferably in house counsel somewhere. In my search, I notice some of the big4 firms (e.g, PWC) are actually hiring in house legal counsel.

Should I keep applying or give up? I graduated from a mediocre law school 10 years ago (cum laude) and have a tax llm from a good school but mediocre grades(3.1) . I am licensed.

I interviewed with a small firm today - it's an intellectual step down - I can't do that. Big law still an option or stop disappointing myself?

Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...

Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
