2 YOE in financial services Corporate Strategy hoping to transition to tech, will be heading to an M7 MBA next year. Looking for a pre-MBA internship at a tech-driven startup before then - please let me know if you have any leads!
How hard is it to move from BB M&A Group to HSW —> MF PE? Is it doable to apply as an associate and then go through that to post MBA ?
Do you think an MBA is worth it?
Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
What other ECs are good besides volunteering/nonprofits? My resume doesn’t have a strong track record of community service so I’m worried that any volunteering that I do now will be seen as fake/done purely for MBA apps. Are there any other impactful activities that can fit into resumes like mine?

Has anyone taken the looker certification? What was it like? I’m looking to go through the courses looker offers before taking the cert.
Working at ACN right now, 2 YOE. Will pivoting over to a startup in a more software sales-based role for another 2 years before my MBA (and moving internationally for this) add to, or take away from my story? I’m thinking: Cons: less brand recognition, shows I didn’t stick around long enough to show progression, strength of recommenders, lower pay Pros: international experience, less conventional background and shows I have a more diversified skill, probably more impact @ a startup. Thoughts?
Hoping to seek everyone’s advice here! I recently moved in-house and have more free time to invest in myself. Which direction would you suggest that I look to for growth? - UX/UI - Coding - Data Analytics - SHRM - PMP - Others?
Best way to study for CFA exam?
I'd love advice. I'm newly pregnant and in a frustrating space with work. I've been told that I'm important to the agency, do great work but when I push for the next position or a raise to reflect my experience, I'm told to be patient, we will discuss, etc. I'd love to look for a new job but with pregnancy & COVID, I'm freaked. Do I keep coasting where I'm at for 2 years while I have a baby? I've built up trust, PTO and support at this agency. Or do I start the job hunt, which may mean moving?
Till when WFH for EY GDS Bangalore?
If I Venmo my brother $5000 with a credit card, and he then cashes out to chase, and then transfers back to me via chase...would that meet the minimum spend for a cc? Obviously there is a 3% fee

Someone could write a thesis paper on toxic masculinity and rape culture based solely off data gathered from the posts in this bowl. I knew it was bad, but hearing all these stories (and worse -- how the OP is often unsure if she should be upset about whatever incident) makes my skin crawl! Silver lining is seeing so many women affirm and validate other women's experiences and remind them they don't need to tolerate behavior like this.
Hi, I'm a fresher placed at EY. I willl be onboarding this month. I've head a lot about the bad work culture + the pay is minimum. I'm looking for reasons to stay, please help.

How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?
The Senior reporting into me has clearly been taking advantage of being semi on the bench even though we are working on a small project. It's 10 a.m. on the East Coast. Wake up, John Doe!!
I started as a life agent with insurance license and series 6. Looking at getting my 7 and 66 to become more of a true advisor and less of a salesperson. Could really use a seasoned mentor on (cont'd)
Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
Open forum to share today’s successes, failures, chaos & support. See below: I’ll say it. I am sick of ppl ruining my day. i wish everyone was a bit more understanding when it comes to unforeseen problems & road blocks. ESPECIALLY when it comes delivery. I know we are all on edge rn- how could we not be? but I’ve had it with how rude and inhumane people are being to each other right now. I’m just trying to help. Why can’t we all be more flexible? (like their expected delivery date lmao)
Recently got promoted to SM at one of the Big 3, how much raise should I expect taking a lateral position at a competitor?
Is it a good idea to live in a bunch of different cities for a month each while WFH is still a thing? I'm young and it sounds like a fun thing to do before I'm more tied down, but I'm slightly worried I'll never have enough time to make friends anywhere I go. Perhaps I can get a baseline amount of social interaction through dates and rec leagues. Any thoughts on if this is a good idea or what heuristics you would recommend I use to select the cities?
COVID looking at the nationwide protests like
WFH + short week = 🙌🍺🙏🍻👍
