Do you guys write cover letters when applying online (aka no referral)? I used to follow that rule and then got bored, but I'm wondering how much difference it really makes these days

Any IT Architects (from BCG Platinion) out there? Have my first interview round coming up and have never had any „IT strategy“ cases before. Any tips?
What’s your take on counteroffers? I recently was offered a role at a growing company (Recent IPO) with what looks like a bright future. The downside is it’s a lat move doing sim work with small increase to base but additional bonus and RSUs that won’t vest for 3 years. Main reason I was leaving current role was due to boredom and wanting a change. Recent restructuring at current place has opened opp’s and they countered with a promotion and 30% bump with all new responsibilities/path. Thoughts?
Recently started in Deloitte’s M&A strategy consulting practice. One of very few without an MBA, and everyone has top tier business degrees. Do I need/should I go get one to match the training/connections these people have presumably acquired from their programs? Am I disadvantaged without from broader exit opportunities?

I am interviewing for a new role and often get asked about a few clients/projects that I did not manage or work on in a day to day capacity. As the department head I gave my team a lot of autonomy to lead their projects, and outside of weekly check ins, I only got involved during RFP stage and when issues came up. I knew in broad strokes what they were working on but wasn’t approving deliverables. So when interviewers ask about these sexy projects we did, I am usually very honest ... (cont)
Will a cover letter significantly help my application while applying to MBB? Or significantly hurt if I don’t attach one? There’s nothing unusual about my resume to explain (i.e. employment gaps, reapplication, etc) so my CL would primarily be explaining why I want to work for the firm.

What's the impact of a promotion from Manager to Senior Manager on the ongoing PERM? Does it void the PWD and Market test? Would need to start over? Anyone went through this? Scenario2: The firm didn't file PWD yet: Q2. Could they anticipat the promotion and start PWD and Market test for SM before your promotion?
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Thinking about getting into valuations. Anyone have any insights about this path in Big4 and in industry? Specifically I’m wondering: 1) what’s the scope of work like at Big 4? (Is the service line split into industry sector groups, or do some groups do Valuation for tangibles and another does intangibles) 2) how are the hours like? Working 9am - 3am consistently? 3) what exit opportunities exit after the Big 4 experience? 4) how does Compensationfor HCOL seniors/ manager look this year?
