Which consulting firms do you think offer the most opportunity/respect/salary, for someone that doesn’t really like selling super hard, preferring to be brought along as expert when others push, or actually deliver things that others sell. Seems at OW there isn’t much opportunity to go beyond EM if this is the case, and as a bit of an introvert am wondering if other firms have an alternate path available.
Is it worth it to have a Fidelity investment associate to manage your retirement 401K account? I am 25, have about 43K in my 401k, more aggressive type of investment. I’ve been using the one-size-fits-all target date funds.

I watched an interview with a psychologist who explained Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and realized this describes my ex to a T. Delusions of grandeur, prone to fits of rage, vain, jealous, thinks everyone is beneath him, entitled. I tried to love him even harder and accommodated every whim to try and make it work. And basically the doctor said that Narcissists don’t change. I’m sad that I wasted 3 years of my life but glad that I’m out. Anyone else healing from dating a Narcissist?

Finding myself very lucky and very confused between Sloan and SOM. Post MBA goal: stay in the US short term but maybe relocate to Asia in the long term, work in consulting or impact investing.

Interviewed by a FP&A director for a SFA position and they asked me my salary expectations. I couldn’t dodge the question so i gave a range between 110-115k (where i’m currently at as S3 in big4 advisory). They said highest base for the position is around 105k and total comp (base+annual bonus) would likely be 110k. The role focuses on top-line P&L and is pure FP&A (no JE/acctg responsibilities) and good WLB, so i think it’s a good opportunity. If they do give an offer, should i still negotiate?
