Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Maternity leave is ending soon and we'll be hiring a nanny. Any recommendations on services to facilitate payroll, taxes, workers comp? Would love to hear examples of what people are using. Thanks.
DM me for EY tax/audit referral.
Are MBB/consulting experience + technical masters (e.g., data science, CS) ever complementary when looking at exit opps, or are they too different to overlap (or, in other words, will the former have been a waste of time if pursuing the latter)?
I pack for a vacation in under 1 hour but for some reason I takes me all night to pack for a shoot because of our weirdo clients getting in my head about not looking homeless 😢 anyone else feel me??

Help with comp negotiation: Was offered a mid level role with fast growing tech co valued at ~$6b. They are offering $140k base and 30k options (number of shares not $) vesting over 4 years. Likely annual bonus of either $20-40k or 10k shares. What’s a reasonable counter? Current offer base would be a pay cut for me, but I believe in the co.

What is working at Citadel like? Talking to a recruiter for an ops role, but she mentioned that the ex-MBB team works as hard as they did in consulting (if not harder). Also see online the Citadel is called “Chicago’s revolving door”? A bad exit for someone wanting a bit more sustainability?
leaving the firm(KPMG).What’s the strategy to get the most $$? Do you get paid out all vacation days for the year? Even if you are leaving in the beginning of the fiscal year?(October). You get taxed?
Google contacted me via LI about a strategy and operations role. I saw on LI that of my 30 business school friends who work at Google, 0 are in S&O. Why do you think this is the case? It could be random chance, but is S&O low paid, or otherwise unattractive for MBA grads for a different reason? 🤔
What are typical company policies in regards to religious observances? Would I have to use a vacation day?

To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Alright 🐟, it's Monday. Tell me about the coffee in your home office and what you'd rank it on a 1-10 (10 being best) scale. Client office coffee also game
Question: Does it give me any edge applying at Google if one of their global recruiters sent me a referral link to apply instead of just applying online? Seems legit.

Is procrastinating to an extreme and then when the deadline approaches, hurriedly putting up a brief that’s not half bad (and would be very good if made on time) a sign of ADHD? I’ve been thinking about scheduling an appt with a psychiatrist. I wasn’t like this pre-pandemic

CSR now gives 10x for booking through the portal for hotels, but I’ve heard we won’t get Bonvoy points if we book through portal because it’s booked through 3rd party? Is that true? What about nights towards status?
Decided that I’m leaving audit today. Trying to understand the full range of opportunities in forensics. Will have my CPA and CFE. So far, I understand that there are client-serving firms like FTI and then the B4 will have forensics arms as well. What are some other forensic accounting roles? Pros and cons? Better than audit? Honestly just looking to learn anything.
