Darden vs Yale SOM full time program? No dollars at both. - Location Agnostic - MBB/ Product Management at FAANG - loved the vibe and culture at both schools

TMW you hug a client and then awkwardly decide you really should have just shaken hands...
Hi Fishes, Please help me decide from the below two roles : Deloitte USI - Another resource in a very long term internal project. EY India - I would be given the responsibility of basically building up an SAP vertical from almost the scratch, along side a client facing project. Renumeration is not a concern. 6 YOE, SAP Tech Consultancy.
Is Accenture a good place to start in security for a new grad? I just got an offer for security consulting/analyst in the US commercial side. I think I want to specialize in cloud technology/security or threat detection. I am concerned that I will be thrown on a random project when I start out and it will stunt my career growth. My alternatives so far are being a junior SRE for a big insurance company or system engineer at a big retail company. Then I could make a lateral move from there.
Long shot, but anyone at JFK have an extra dell charger? Left mine at the client and would prefer not doing the hour drive to the office tomorrow AM 😅

That moment when you return from 2 weeks completely detached from the firm on PTO out of the country and have no idea what project you are on Monday or where you are going.
When you have a manager so bad, you and everyone under them quit, and HR questions the team about “leadership culture”, but they still get promoted to SM -_-

401k or Roth IRA? Should I be prioritizing the Roth IRA first when I'm younger? Even mix?
I've been putting my 401k into a target date fund, but the risk/upside just isn't high enough given I'm not retiring for another 30 years. Thoughts on putting it all in a large-cap growth fund (VIGIX)? Returns have been solid over last 10 years. Investing through work, so don't have all funds available to me.
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?
https://hbr.org/2020/01/what-top-consulting-firms-gets-wrong-about-hiring thoughts? Article mentions case interviews as a poor predictor of performance.
How intense are FAANG case interviews?
I didn’t send a thank you email following a third interview on Monday, because up until that point, everything had been so quick and I thought the interview went so great, that I would hear back quickly. It’s now Friday and no word. Did I just screw myself out of my dream job?
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
Will I need a negative covid test to board a flight back to NY (LGA) ? Has anyone have flew into NYC recently & could tell me their experience? Thank you, for I will be in the MO this upcoming weekend. When I call their state center, it appears most testing sites are closed on Sat/Sun. (Please no snooty/rude comments, I haven’t traveled since March & been been staying at home expect for needed errands. This is not a leisure trip by any means. )
AA is looking for a third aircraft for us tonight, first two had mechanical issues. Looks like I might not need my hotel tonight we’re so delayed. How many points?

Just found out I’m pregnant but I’m on birth control and I have been for 2 years now so I have no idea how to explain this to my bf or how this even happened........
A friend just got an email from Accenture on taking a digital assessment for a role he applied and he is very excited. Any ideas or inputs from Accenture employees here will really be of help.
Rolled off my first project due to performance. I’m bummed and it’s the first time it’s happened to me. Talked to my coach and PM about it. Still feel like I have a scarlet letter.
