MBB doesn't understand strategic design strategy nor how to deploy it. It always ends up bastardized into the hypothesis-driven approach. Prove me wrong.
Are MBB sponsored MBA students expected to return to their home firms for the summer between their two years? I know you're obligated to go back post-MBA, but what about the summer in between?
It is one of those Sundays when you just want to call in sick due to the sheer volume of work that is waiting for you. Godspeed fellow FBers... May the force be with us...
MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
Fellow F 🐠, why do Deloitte men suck? How about the MBB, other Big 4, Accenture, etc. guys? Just trying to understand.
Do you think taking all of your leave (family, parental, sick, etc.) will impact your career progression? If so, how?
I noticed that in addition to asking for race/sex/veteran status demographics, employers are now also asking about disability status. Do you answer these questions or “prefer not to disclose”?
really struggling and meds aren’t working, having urges to cut about 10 times a day & toxic work place.. thinking about just quitting because i haven’t been at my new job 6 months for disability
I run a social security disability practice in Texas. Glad to answer any questions anyone has about it. Many times after an injury a person can no longer work and they may become eligible for benefits
Did a medical check-up since I’m home and family doctor says business has actually been slow. High blood pressure for the first time in my life - I’m glad I know. Encourage others to get checked out just to see how their body is absorbing additional stress.
Had anyone ever quit? I need unemployment but I’m in a toxic situation. Already went to hr. harassed on my sick days, panic at the thought of my inbox. Feel a mental break coming. What would you do?
Fish who’ve worked at both FAANG and consulting - is the work at FAANG sufficiently challenging (in terms of complexity of problems)? Are people at strategy roles in FAANG as talented as MBB folks?
I’m really glad someone made is bowl. I’m sick and tired of all the Cole Haan and Banana Republic posts on Consulting in Style...
For parents with school-age kiddos (kindergarten up), what do you do for childcare? Thinking about giving up our nanny, but worried about juggling days off, sick days, and summer break.
Anyone here from capital one? Interviewing for a principal associate role. Not really sure what level the role is. What’s the hierarchy in your analytics roles?
Hey there, I have two years of experience as an Associate at PwC, worked on projects as a Scrum Master, TOM projects, thought leadership for the AWM industry and digital banking industry. Looking to make a change and specialise. Been looking at internal consulting gigs at banks, other big 4, and tech companies but still unsure of what to pursue next. Any advice ?
I want to start a thread about important questions to ask before accepting a job offer. For example, before accepting a job offer I will generally respond to the offer asking the following questions: 1. Health insurance (insurer name, deductibles, my portion of the premium) 2. 401 K (company match?) 3. Bonus structure 4. Required billable hours 5. My office hours 6. Partnership track 7. Will I have an assistant/paralegal? 8. Will I have my own office? Please add to this!
Accepting the amount of hate I'll get for this but in my opinion a small commuter plane shouldn't staff flight attendants with hips wider than the aisle. It's annoying to keep getting bumped by a$$ 😑
Monday morning and the only thing that goes through my mind is wow I hate my job. Between the strict requirement of releasing billing time daily, high billable goal and I guess a heavy workload (and everything that comes with living through a pandemic) it’s hard to start my day excited for work. And I hate it. Makes me question why I’m doing this for a living.
Anyone manage their own investments? How did you get started? All my money is either in a savings account or 401K and I feel like I should be doing more. But the investment world seems so intimidating, I have no idea where to start and how to ensure compliance with the firm
Hi! I wanted to ask what’s everyone’s opinions about starting off entry-level at an agency or going to corporate/brand side first (considering pay, work/life, culture)?
I am one one of those laid off from Deloitte on H1-b (stamped) visa. My question is, if I join a consultancy and initiate H1-b transfer with them, then in one month I find full time job outside. Can the consultancy stop me from joining the full time role? I have heard couple of instances where consultancies not releasing the i797 approval document. If the consultancy does not release my i797, can my transfer process with the full time job happen? Please help - I have 40 days left to find new job
