I have about 4.5 yoe in a reputed Internet company. I want to move further into analytics.
A lot of my work in the current role is on spreadsheets. I am fairly good with EDA on R and Python

After 4 weeks of 60-65 hour timesheets, I am at my wits end. I tried to look for other opportunities, but I have essentially ghosted 3 recruiters and 1 second round interview. I am embarrassed.

However, I don’t want to piss anyone off, especially if I have read the situation incorrectly.

I'm a PharmD graduate about to start at ZS as an AC in a few months. I'm really excited but also super nervous. As a 1st gen immigrant female, the consulting world is very new to me. I started out at a community college and just slowly worked my way up to pharmacy school. I'm afraid that I don't belong in this professional environment. I would love to hear any tips or advice (or better yet, anyone willing to mentor?) on how to succeed and navigate the corporate world. Thank you.

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Do you have something lined up to leave for? If so, definitely doesn’t look bad to leave. I think if you quit after a month, you should leave it off your resume
I would say leave it off - you don’t want employers wondering about your commitment
I ran my own consultancy for awhile. Did a few small jobs whilst doing that as I settled. Just called them my clients and lumped together :-)
Yep. Clients were fine with it and it bundles everything together / makes me sound like I have hustle
Definitely leave it off your resume and not a bad idea to find something you want.
