My job was affected by COVID. I’m have a T20 MBA, closing in on two final round interviews one for a well know pharma consulting firm and the other for F 500 healthcare company as a regional ops director. I like both companies equally but looking to taking a shot at MBB in the next two years. Any advice?
How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?

To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

Yo EY, why do you currently audit Corrections Corporation of America, a private prison company? Are you just going to talk about Diversity and Inclusion or are you going to put your money where your mouth is?
I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

Curious question: Selected in this year lottery but for “h1b change of status cap subject FY2021”. I was planning to change company if h1b is approved this year(oct 1). Does this email subject line above means that I have to wait until next year October(2021) in order for my h1b to be officially approve and to change company? 😰
