Secured 750 (Q:49, V:42) in GMAT. Targeting to apply for EMBA in 1-2 years. 9 YOE. Current role: Senior Manager. Target universities: M7, INSEAD and LBS. Question is, for GMAT exam I just focused on Q & V part, and skipped IR & AWA part (IR: 1 & AWA: 3). Now does it make sense to reattempt with a focus on other parts and risk 750 scores, or you think it’s not needed, as for EMBA’s GMAT score is not the only deciding factor and 750 score is enough for most universities irrespective of IR & AWA.
Slalom Consulting people, what’s the difference between Business Analyst vs. consultant level roles at Slalom? The consultant and business analyst roles both ask for 2+ YOE and have a similar pay range on the job descriptions. I recently hit my 2 year mark at Accenture and am wanting to continue doing consultant-type work, but am worried about taking an analyst level role (if it’s similar to entry-level) as I would be getting consultant this year if I were to stay at Accenture. Any advice?

Pay in line with MBB or exceeds (YOY raise is also in line with career and pay progression at MBB) 2. Have reasonable hours, at most 9-7 so I can pick up some hobbies and have a personal life 3. Have great global brand/prestige that will make me as desirable exiting consulting now vs exiting that company in the future

Hello, to the Fishbowl Community! Been a financial analyst at a big bank for about 8 months now.

Im a third year associate and I’m frequently asked to give presentations (on new case law, legislation, ect.) during a weekly meeting for my section. There’s a first year associate and a law clerk in my section who are never asked to present. Should I push back on this? Would it look bad if I delegate some of the work to the others? I spend a lot of non billable time prepping for these presentations...it seems unfair that I’m the only one who has to do them.

Hi All, Last week interviewed by Cognizant, it went pretty well. Expecting a call back from them for next procedures. Usually how long it takes for them to call back ? Anyone recently interviewed or grab an offer ? Need inputs..
Mother superannuated today and was able to watch her farewell speech. Feeling very emotional (i.e. tearing up at midday) as I recall our humble beginnings and how much my middle class family has sacrificed and achieved. My parents sent their only daughter for higher education abroad and it is tough to see them grow old. Getting exposed to so many new facets of life as a 25F…. just one of those days. Kind words only please 🙏
I need genuine pieces of advice please. I’ve been on a project that have brought me a lot of stress and lately medical issues, I just had another panicky attack today where my left side was numb for a good hour and my heart was racing. My husband asked me to quit but idk why I am afraid. I have a 1 year old baby that I am taking care of as well. The PM on the project told me that she would roll me off once she finds a replacement but it has been 1month now that I am trying to keep my head up ctd

Hello, I am considering joining Deloitte, . I wanted to join as a manager, however, offer might come as a SC.
