Agreed. Build a career that helps you live the life you want now, not in 20 years. Sure, I can FIRE quicker with a remote role by living in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but there are quality of life trade offs and life is not simply a cost optimization problem

A female planner at the agency said she needed to work on a brief with me. because we’re working from home she asked if I wanted to meet for lunch to go over it. I said sure. She proceeded to order wine. After linch she touched my hand and asked me to her place. I declined. My question for you all is, if I did that to her, and she went to hr, I’d be canned. Do I have similar recourse?

Here is the TLDR LEK doesn’t suck post.

IMHO, our stint in consulting’s purpose is to develop a corporate strategy skillset. Doing CDDs is one of if not the best way to get a ton of reps and variety in our 18 - 24 month tenure.

With options among MBB, T2 incl S&, EYP, and general Big 4 / ACN MC:

- Take MBB (can ask for CDD, overall better comp package)
- Reject B4 MC (won’t get it here)
- T2 (pick other T2s if you want way more strategy projects that aren’t CDD / growth strategy)
