Worklife balance in ThoughtWorks is exceptional. It also has a great learning curve with most projects on recent tech stack.
I haven't worked in McKinsey. Hence, I won't be able to comment on the wlb. But, McKinsey is a very big brand and has lot's of opportunities. If offer is for frontend strategy consulting, you can consider McKinsey. If it is for tech consulting or tech roles you can decide based on the tech stack both are offering.

EY LawEY Law has started my green card process almost two years ago and still haven’t gotten through the PWD stage. About 8 months ago they told me they had to reapply for the PWD because they received an unfavorable decision. My visa is set to expire end of next year. Is this normal? I don’t understand why they’re taking so long and can’t even get a PWD decision.

Hi fishes,

I am a strategy consulting enthusiast from a middle class family. Don't have the financial stability to take a loan for an MBA and hence had to drop some renouned admits this year (Think top IIM's) due to family circumstances. I still dream big and request you to provide some insights for my research:-
1) Average expected package of an associate
2) Average experience expected at ZS to get hired at associate (not BCN)
3) Good books to upskill and ace the consulting case interviews
