Target is hiring for a performance acceleration lead role, ambitions to go to Stanford GSB, would accepting kill that ambition?

Nope. Coming from Deloitte, you'll honestly have a better chance getting into GSB if you have some industry experience too

Seriously? Why so B1?

GSB rarely takes anyone from Big 4, if at all. And they are pretty stingy even with MBB admits. So you've got to differentiate yourself somehow and working for a major retailer on high profile, successful projects is one way to do it. I know folks from target, Walmart, CVS, and whole foods who have all graduated from GSB. And have consoled many a Bain associate consultant who was rejected by GSB.

need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges
