Is an MBA required to get senior leadership roles in Canada? I always find myself wondering if, down the line, I will regret not doing an MBA. However, my peers (with and without MBAs) don’t seem to think MBAs are needed in Canada if you have the right experiences. Would love to hear more opinions on this

Here’s an entirely unrelated to work question, but one that’s entirely “rooted” in vanity. Has anyone had any experience with Bosley or other hair restoration procedures? If so, what was your experience?

Which title sounds more senior: Associate Director or Principal Director? It’s a pure ego question to be answered with your guts.
Am I crazy? I am barely cracking 35 hrs a week, getting paid over 400k TC and tons of autonomy. I am bored out my mind and looking for opps outside consulting even if it means a cut in pay/title and increase in workload.
Anyone made the move from Big 4 to LEK at partner level? If so, any thoughts or reactions to share about your experience that might be helpful to others?
I am being recruited by McKinsey. I am just starting the process so who knows what will happen. In the summer I had an offer from EY, which was good, but I actually felt like my role at ACN was just too good to leave. However Mck seems to focus on really interesting problems to solve. My questions to other partners out there - if you left another firm to go to Mck, why? If you considered an offer but decided to stay where you are, why? Don’t want to waste people’s time if I’m better off at ACN
Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.
Considering an MD position at Accenture and need to give comp expectation, its on Strategy side. Of course its based on my own need and desire, but like to hear from (ex)MDs at Accenture if 400k sounds like a reasonable ask for base. And can anyone help me understand the difference between L4 and L3? For reference, I am a Senior Principal with almost 2 years executive industry experience post consulting. Thanks for any insights!

Leaders, Could you share your thoughts, that you are willing and able to share, regarding:
1. How are your clients viewing post-Covid in-office work?
2. How do you think expectations for face-to-face work and travel (and the associated expenses) will change for your teams based on client expectations?
3. What are the views of your teams re: willingness / eagerness to travel?
Thoughts on McKinsey's client selection process?
I am a partner at a boutique healthcare / LS-focused firm that is rapidly growing due to PE buyout. I have a partner-level offer at a highly respected biotech venture creation firm (non traditional VC). I am strongly considering the offer though the overall compensation may be approximately 100k-200k less YoY. Looking for some perspectives on whether I am remiss to leave so much on the table.
Partners - what percentage of after tax net income are you saving annually? Some demographics (married, children, and HCL city, etc.) would be helpful context.

In talking with peers from top tier firms, it appears like we are all going thru a similar grind internally. Feels like it is all good intentioned but overwhelming nonetheless. Do u feel differently?

If you’re doing a DIY trip, you can generally just email or call the clubs you want to play (my brother just booked us 7 rounds in Ireland this way). You’ll have to pay some or all of your fees in advance and let them know if you want caddies. If you have a group going, it’s generally easier to use a golf planner even though you pay a premium for the service. DM me if you have other questions.
Hidden links is great ⛳️
Scottish person here - depends what you mean by easily and cost effectively
As P1 says, DIY is likely the most cost effective. Figure out your schedule and what courses you want to play - email or call them - done. You probably won’t get a cheaper way and a few emails/phone calls isn’t that hard
If you use a tour company or guide - you’ll save the time getting the tee times, but they’ll want paid for their service
Couple things to consider
If you want to play some of the iconic courses - old course, carnoustie etc - tee times are at a premium and often booked waaaaay out. Best way is to use a service, otherwise a crap shoot.
Don’t confuse mileage with time - the UK isn’t that big (certainly compared to the US) but roads and traffic means that it can take a long while to get between venues.
