For some reason whenever I think an interview has gone poorly it works out well, and when I think it went well I don’t advance

Yes! I have also had the same recently. I wouldn’t have been bummed about that one that didn’t feel like it went well (it did). But this one sucks because I was feeling good about the next round!

Not going into the details but I had a pretty terrible experience with a recruiter from another big 4 recently. I passed the initial SM level screening and the recruiter is supposed to setup interviews. They asked for time a week ago. But given how awful my conversation with the recruiter was I am wondering if I should ask them to schedule the next level interview at all. I’m worried that the recruiter will not be cooperative in the next stages of the interview. Any suggestions?

After you’ve connected with a consultant on LinkedIn what’s the best practice for asking someone to give you a practice case? To balance respect someone’s time vs coming off as transactional.

I am prepping for MBB interviews but I know consultants work crazy hours so I don’t want to take up more time than necessary - what would you prefer? What is the best practice?

Consultant vs specialist track - I’m considering jumping to the specialist track since I enjoy the technical work much more. However, it seems like it’s perceived as a step back. But what are the tangible differences? Lower pay and benefits? I’ve asked my cc but she doesn’t seem to have much to offer. Also, is the culture different? ….I really dislike working with hyper competitive people, most in consulting are great to work with, but there seems to be a solid 30% that are bad humans

60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
