Really burned out and not wanting to do consulting anymore, but I also don’t really know what I want to so. I have the cash to take a six month career break. Is this a bad idea?

Ask to take an unpaid leave / sabbatical. Take some time off to recharge and then decide if you want to come back. People do it more often then you think.

Hi everyone. I’m looking to buy a condo in West Hollywood and have been saving up for a 20% down payment for my price range. My question for anyone here who bought here (or anywhere in LA): how long did you rent before buying? What % down payment did you pay and is 20% a good idea? I’m early 30s, engaged, will not have kids for some time. I rent here now and love this area. Am an attorney. Any other questions I should be asking? Anyone have agent suggestions?

So, I've been thinking alot and did quite some research but would really love some insight (Accounting vs Fund Accountant)

Hello - I've been accepted to an MBA program in France for Sept 2022 (EDHEC) in Nice.

1) What is the French consulting scene like? Accenture, KPMG, PWC and Deloitte all recruit directly from my school, as well as a few boutique french firms.
2) Are MBA Summer consulting internships a good idea, or should I do a school consulting project and apply as a FT hire?
3) Generally what do "Consulting Clubs" consist of?
4) Any other firms have a large presence in France?

Thank you!

Hello Everyone,

I have 2 outstanding offers from EY and KPMG in the Finance Transformation group. Does anyone have any insight on the WLB right now, with the labor shortage and pipeline being crazy?

Also,does anyone have any insight to how difficult the transition will be from being a manager at a middle market firm into a manager at the B4? If someone else has done the transition how long did it take to get your feet under you?

Whats the difference between consulting and advisory in terms of job duties, pay, wlb, etc? I have asked this question to many people in both positions, and no one is able to give an actual answer that differentiates the two.
