Thinking of moving from consulting to program management for a software company. I have 6 years working experience and an MBA. I was offered 124k as a base and 12% annual bonus. No sign on bonus or equity. Thoughts on this offer?
Having 7 YOE to only make 65k with an MBA is the most stressful thing for me, especially at a Big 4. I’ve been trying to get into tech and the recruiters would reach out then are nowhere to be found. I’ve been wanting some assistance but feel like I’m talking to the wrong people.
Are there top consulting firms that take on experienced consultants w/o an MBA? I refuse to get an MBA and not sure if that precludes me from joining a top consulting firm. Thoughts?
For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?

Alvarez & Marsal Corporate Performance Improvement group or Accenture CDP? Which one is “better” in terms of reputation, exit ops, MBA apps, and diversity of projects
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Hello. I have an interview for a company that doesn’t offer maternity leave for employees under a year. I happen to be 5 months pregnant. My job now gives 18 weeks total but this new job is more pay, something I’d be much more passionate about and I’d actually get RSUs for the first time. Have you guys negotiated maternity leave? Have you been pregnant looking for work? When do you tell your employer?

Hi ladies, I need some advice on how to navigate/build a relationship with my fiance's family. Some of his siblings and family members are very standoffish and distant. For background, we are same race different culture. I'm very open and I've learned a lot from my fiance over the years. However, I believe his family still sees me as an outsider and they don't invite me to certain things. At times, it feels isolating and it makes me feel unwelcomed. They're also supposed to be in my wedding.
