Hey guys, how are y’all doing?! I’m new to the industry, I’ve started as an SD Consultant in march, and since then I did a SD Academy and recently got the S/4HANA Sales 2020 Upskilling certification.

Anyone at AlixPartners able to share some insight on WLB and career progression? Looking to stay in consulting long term and have heard great things about AP’s compensation and culture. Interested in applying /lateraling into the Post MBA role level (I believe it’s “VP”?)
Hi ladies! I am seeking advice as I am torn between between prepping and applying to MBA or FAANG jobs. I currently am at 4.5 YOE, 150K base, engineering manager. My network has advised that an MBA can help pivot careers as I’m exploring content strategy (Netflix). One of my goals is to also work in London. I will add that there is an expectation in my family for higher education and candidly, my longer term goal is a CXO position. Thank you!

Trying to see if MBA is worth for me - I've just accepted an account director at an agency for $140K, 6 yoe, and trying to seek for MBA in order to transition into tech marketing. I heard that it's only worth it if the salary would double, but since I'm in HCOL I would hope that won't be the case. When you were trying to gauge if MBA is worth for you, what resources help you the most?

Hi 🐠! My firm is willing to file an EB3 GC for me, however I’m from a highly backlogged country and was wondering what’s the realistic timeline for it from start to finish? The process seems to be stressful, to say the least. Alternatively, I have the ability to venture out into Canada (as I’m yet to pursue an MBA, after which I plan on pivoting into a diff. industry). What would you do?

I have an offer from MBB at my MBA program but I’d lose my sponsorship with LEK if accepted (they won’t match it). Interviewed for exposure. How easy would it be to lateral to MBB after I put in 2 post-years with LEK? Are the cases a little more relaxed then? The FOMO😖
Passed over for a promotion a third time, even after doing everything, and more, you’re supposed to? It’s time to GTFO
My life is a Gordian knot of problems. Pretty much every major pillar is a mess: I’ve been trying to deal with abusive family for years, and recently my longterm boyfriend broke up with me, and my job is being given to someone else while I’m pushed to a lesser position. I’ve been trying so hard for so long. I’ve been job hunting for months. I am tired. It really feels like death is the quick and easy solution, the metaphoric “sword” that will solve the unsolvable.
My dad is generally supportive of me, but downplays my accomplishments and treats my confidence like arrogance. He barely acknowledges my wins and can be slightly (but not overly) negative. He does say he’s proud of me once in a while, but I do feel like my feelings are often invalidated. For what it’s worth, he’s an Asian dad and will always see me as his kid rather than an adult. Any advice? I try not to seek approval, but I do live with my parents (moved out then back in due to COVID)

For data science roles, senior (L6) at AWS or post MBA level (specialist track, so same pay as generalists) at MBB? Comp is 20% higher at AWS just to start. But maybe looks like MBB has better upside - solid path to promotion to manager level with solid comp increase. But worse WLB and it's unclear to me whether MBB data scientist on the resume is up to par with big tech data scientist on the resume. Coming from big 4 so I am considering brand so I can do better with future resume screens.
Who is doing a Christmas/holiday party or other client appreciation event this year? My partner and I are struggling with what to do given Covid.
My house got egged and tped over the weekend. I took it upon myself to reach out to the parents and let them know I've already called the cops but wanted to reach out to you first before the cop shows up on your door. 1 set of parents immediately shifted blame to me and bashed me as a teacher and told me they think I have it out for their son and didn't address the situation at hand. How can I move forward with this situation?
Currently in the cloud space. When is a good time to exit consulting? Goal is to become a tech lead in a mid to large size corporate. Thanks.

wanted to share this messed up situation I was in: was casually dating a person for 2 months and they told me they were engaged for two years before (which I didn’t really care). But the important piece of the information they left out was the fact that the person they were engaged to is literally their current roommate (which I have met many times and brought them snacks). Now I feel really lied to and silly. I was really trying to be a genuine person and supported them when their dog passed. 🥴
