Working in Europe temporarily. Have an option to do Executive MBA, it’s around 70-90k Euros for an year. Another option I have is doing part time PhD in Management.

What do you think will be the impact of this rapid hiring for MBB? MBB is hiring so rapidly. When it cools down, do you think MBB will realize they over hired? Will it become harder for associates (post MBA) to get promoted? Will it become more competitive for Associates to get staffed on projects they want to be on? Will there just be too many consultants at the Firm and a mass layoff? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?
Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.

My district has a COVID-19 Compliance Tipline. While I don’t have need of it currently, it is good to know it is there. Does your district have this?
I have one foot out the door in my current role (was unhappy pre-Covid, has become worse during Covid)...and I am having a challenging time in my personal life currently, Both of these things combined I feel are effecting my feedback style. I am a little shorter, easily frustrated & unmotivated. I worry I am making it harder for my creative team who I care about a lot. Im not sure how to address it, as it feels fairly personal. Has anyone been in a similar scenario & did you get past it?

NYC UI: I applied 3/9 and claimed weekly benefits every week while pending. My claim was approved 5/13 (with a crazy low of $182/wk). The NY Labor system now says I haven’t claimed my weekly benefits since I applied. Beyond frustrating.
