How to get into top 3 MBA with decent (3.7-3.8) undergrad grades from a state school, 740+ GMAT, as a straight white male at a Big 4?
In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
I'm getting my MBA from the University of Arizona, how prestigious is the AACSB accreditation? And do MBB or Big 4 Consultant firms care about it?
At the big 4, why is cyber security usually in risk advisory/assurance and not in consulting?
How is IBM Enterprise Strategy? WLB, Comp vs B4, team culture, work overall. Appreciate any insight- thanks!
Remember the big 4 consultant who got screwed because he expensed reloading his starbucks card? What was the verdict on that? Is that allowed
Divorced M 🐠 here who's scared of commitment now. For people looking for an LTR, how certain are you about someone b4 you decide to go exclusive? For e.g. 25% or 75% that he/she is the right person?
Out of curiosity why is KPMG consistently made fun of and considered the worst of the big 4? I've been here a year and love working here, the people and work make me happy to come in everyday
I'm looking to move to one of the big 4 companies. I have alsomost 10 years of software engineering experience but no college degree. Is it possible to get in? If so what positions should I apply for?

How difficult is it to be counseled out at Big 4 firms? Is it common or do you really have to mess up? Are any of the firms more cutthroat than the others?
I passed my CPA exams, waiting for my license now, will take about 4-5 months. Should I look for a new job now or wait for my license, aiming for B4 audit senior.
Have been pinged for a possible role as Director of Operations at a promising looking startup with a 50%% pay increase & equity. It looks like an amazing opportunity.. but my husband and I have just started trying for our first kid, and I'm not sure about leaving the stability and benefits of Big 4, even though I feel like I have run out of career growth here. Has anyone changed jobs at a similar point, or worked at a startup as a new mom, that might be able to share perspective or opinions?
Would it be a bad move to leave B4 FDD for somewhere like A&M or HL or Riveron as a soon to be A2? I’m being recruited and their practice seems to be growing like crazy so I see it as being a good opportunity to ride the growth and get paid more in the meantime. Any advice?
What’s the best way to get into crypto? Finally left the big 4 world where independence sucked and made me jump through a bunch of hoops just to invest in anything from certain stocks to crypto. Looking to learn a lot.
Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

I recently had an interview with a Publicis agency and didn’t feel as if I was able to fully grasp the work/life culture or company culture as a whole. Anyone work there willing to give their thoughts on the overarching company?

I have heard that the interview invites for MBBs FT recruiting go out today. Anybody heard of a time range to shoot for? I'm probably going to be a nervous wreck the entire day anyhow. (Tags: McKinsey, Bain, BCG, M7, MBA Recruiting)
For flight delays out of Europe, you apparently have rights to compensation. Article suggests you pay someone to do it for you: http://qz.com/779914/how-i-got-american-airlines-to-pay-me-e600-for-a-delayed-flight. Anyone try this?

Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?
are there any good reference materials (or websites) for Deloitte case interview / behavioral interview for an experienced hire? 🙂
Need Salary insights for a 3 YOE exp lateral hire and immediate joiner. Deloitte USI is offering 7LPA+50k joining bonus, current ctc 4.5 LPA. HR says this is the max for the band, but I see 2 YOE exp guys also getting paid upwards of 9LPA.
Just interviewed for this job that sounds superficially good but I think will take me back to the work I did 10 years ago but will pay my target salary and will have a fancy title (VP). I don't really want to do this but I need a job, have run out of UI and don't want to deplete my savings to nothing waiting for the perfect job. If offered, should I take it and continue looking or will it look bad? Changed jobs within 1 year once already. At least this job would be spinnable for what I want.
Was CDD work as bad, i.e. long hours, before WFH or clients and teams would assume you had a life past a certain time before the pandemic? How much of it is the nature of the clients/deals vs WFH making it harder to set boundaries? Trying to see if I can do this long term.
Are there any creatives you look up to who’s personal life isn’t in shambles (divorced, cheating on side, neglecting kids)? I was happy to make advertising/career my life until I had my first child...
