Is strategy consulting (even MBB) losing it's charm nowadays with the world moving more towards implementation projects and better opportunities available outside which have good pay as well as better WLB?
Something like what happened with IB roles which were all the rage in B Schools few years back but now have tapered off a lot.
I have 4YOE in tech implementations . i want to move around to get better pay. should I target FAANG or MBB? Primary driver to exit is better compensation . Thanks fam
Are consulting exit opportunities really as good as people say? I feel like any time I look into people in interesting strategic roles in industry, they’re almost exclusively from either Investment Banking or MBB but nowhere else
How common is it to get a decent-sized merit scholarship from M7? I’m coming from MBB but not sure I want to commit myself to returning after I get my MBA and also don’t want to have to take out a bunch of loans.

People who have made it to the perceived “top/best” place in their career field/education (MBB, FAANG, top PE fund, HSW, etc): do you feel satisfied? Have you had to recalibrate your goals? If so, what are those goals?
Does WE matter more or test scores? Like for those who work in non mbb consulting vs other analyst roles where there’s much more time to study. Have friends who don’t really have much work and spent a lot of time studying to get good scores meanwhile I don’t have much time to study. Can’t decide if I should leave T2 consulting to focus on test score
MBB folks - given up-or-out, what’s the rough success rate of PLs making Principal, and then of Principals making Partner?

Which level/role does MBB can offer me ?
Starting at MBB as a lateral hire in a few weeks and have some time off in between. Plan on relaxing mostly but also want to try to get a bit better at modeling in excel. Anyone know a good online course that I could do for a few hours a week to work on that?

Does MBB pay for second year of MBA if you intern, receive an offer, and accept your offer?
Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I think that long-arm statutes are terrible for our system. You shouldn't be able to file in the state that you live in. As a policy matter, I feel the default should always be where the defendant lives unless the contract states otherwise.
Is it better to specialize in a certain part of the military to learn all the nuances of it?

I need serious advice, please! Am I wasting my time messaging a guy I matched with online that lives on the opposite coast? Background: we message each other at least 1-2 times everyday for the last FIVE months but never over a phone call. He actually doesn't even have my number. We message on IG. He's a full-time student and full time employee so busy guy. But am I wasting my time and emotions with this guy??

My confession is that I have seen the medical field change so much over the past 20 years, that it's unrecognizable in both good and bad ways. More people are leaving than staying, and I am worried the quality of care is dwindling. I try not to burden friends and family with some of the things I've seen recently, but the short version is that I'm no longer sure I have faith or trust in it myself.
