Engaging in dumb hypotheticals but I'm curious: At 1 YOE post-MBA, would you pick Amazon or MBB if the estimated TC is the same, and you've been working in consulting since your MBA? Obviously this depends on the role, but for the sake of a broader audience, we'll assume the role simply isn't a backwater contracting/etc. role at Amazon and that for MBB it's core consulting. Like an option below & comment your thoughts.

My client's team starts work very early each morning (6 to 630 am), but i much prefer a later start (ie. 9 am). They also gave me a laptop to access Teams on their network, so will definitely notice if my schedule isn't aligned. I'm trying to make the adjustment to earlier start but know its gonna be tough...any tips or ideas to help manage? Thinking its best to adjust to their schedule for now at least and *maybe* discuss adjusting in the future at some point. Thoughts?

I'm still wondering why the commercial real estate sector hasn't collapsed. Two years in it's clear WFH is here to stay-at most I could see some companies implementing a hybrid schedule.
