Partners, is it appropriate to ask for a LinkedIn recommendation after leaving the firm? What about the client after wrapping up a project? If so what is the best way to do this?

I think it is fine to ask, but would not put much effort into it. I think LinkedIn recommendations have little weight in most cases

As a rule, I don't write LinkedIn recommendations - I don't see them as valuable, and they are publicly tagged to me forever. I will volunteer to connect people I've enjoyed working with to other people in my network, however, and give personal recommendations when I can.

I’m a sponsored MBA student with option to come back to my firm (Tier 2) at Manager/Project Leader level, but I’ve also received full time offer for MBB at post-MBA level (lower TC by >50K plus need to cover 80K USD for MBA). I may want to stay in consulting long-term, but also open to switching to tech at some point. Is there a strong reason to switch to MBB now, or does it make sense to work in my current firm for 2 years and then make lateral move to MBB at a more senior level?

Has anyone had a challenging time with scheduling an interview call for an AE role with Gartner? The first time, we scheduled for a day/time and confirmed. When that day/time came, they didn’t call so I messaged them to f/u. They apologized since it didn’t make it into their calendar and the spot was taken although I thought that spot was for me & I waited for the calendar invite despite it not being sent. Rescheduling for the 2nd time wasn’t helpful either even with an invite. Seems strange.
