Studying for midterms (mba) and, per usual, bunch of deliverables due this week. Long hours for both work and studying are making this week drag. Anyone else struggling?
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Why do some companies ask for 8+ YoE + MBA for mid-management positions (Manager, Sr. manager, Associate, Sr. Associate). At 8 YoE the super talented people would probably be looking for director level roles. Wouldn’t it be better to get them at like 3-5YoE?
Slalom Consulting folks: what salary would you expect 1-2 years post-MBA? Medium COL city if that matters.
Hoping to seek everyone’s advice here! I recently moved in-house and have more free time to invest in myself. Which direction would you suggest that I look to for growth? - UX/UI - Coding - Data Analytics - SHRM - PMP - Others?
After nearly 20 years in the military serving in T&E and HR roles, I’m considering moving on and have been conducting lots of research into consulting. BS, MA, and SPHR cert - no MBA. I’m looking for suggestions or advise about transitioning. DC Metro area is likely landing spot.

I'm currently on H1B (year 1). I'm planning to do a full-time MBA in 2 years. Can I go from H1B to F1 then back to H1B (and use the unused H1B time without going through lottery)?
Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
Duke MBA to MBB - how likely?
Can someone give a time sense for an average prep time for CSCP certification versus CPIM? I think CPIM takes much longer but not sure
What cert to go for next? Currently have AWS-SAA and Security+. Thinking about CISSP but how difficult is it compared to the AWS-SAA?
Rank these MBA schools in order of ease of admissions: Yale, Cornell, Stern, Duke, Kellogg, Tuck. Thanks!
Has anyone ever applied to an MBA program that emails you with waived application fee and essays just to say no when you get accepted?
How difficult is obtaining an AWS cloud practitioner cert if you’re not particularly technical?
I’m planning on getting the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate cert. Is there any point to getting the AWS Cloud Practitioner cert as well or is that just paying $100 for no reason?
How hard is it to transition from medical device (e.g., neuromodulation) to pharma/biotech?
I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.
Still hoping to purchase Hilton Honors points! Ideally looking for 150k, but fewer will help as well. Hmu if you have some to sell!
Lately, for some reason, I feel like I’ve really hit a wall. I feel no motivation to do anything and constantly procrastinate until the last minute to work on an assignment. Then, I’d stress about doing a bad job and getting fired. This is a vicious cycle and I know that I should seek counseling. But beyond that, what else should I do? Has anyone experienced this before, and how did you get out of this cycle?
Do any big 4 offer tuition assistance?
If my green card application is on Labor Market test stage, is it worth transferring to another company and starting the PERM process all over again? I’m not a Chinese or Indian citizen btw
Microsoft Teams is driving me crazy. I feel like I’m always at work. Yesterday I was at a family bbq and I was constantly getting pinged. Every time I get a message notification I feel like I’m about to have a panic attack.
Has anyone exited into Apple’s Global Supply Manager role? If so, can you share your thoughts/experiences on the position? Currently a supply chain consultant w/ 2 YOE considering the move.
It's always been a dream of mine to live in NYC. Very grateful to be employed during this time but the only problem is my current job isn't based in NYC. Would it be crazy to just.... make the move since we're in indefinite WFH? Asking for a friend... 👀
Hi Folks, Does anyone know how long will KPMG will take to release offer letter after final round (Onshore Round) as i was told this would be the last round. Really tensed. Gave the interview on 12th August, i guess its too soon to follow up.

Looking to exit to a Program Manager type role preferably within tech/media, (NYC/LA/ATL). I have 3 years PM experience at EY and 4 years prior in industry but having no luck finding any roles. Help?
Based in DC, United or American? DCA seems to lean American which is nice for proximity, but it’s smaller. Sub question: which lounge memberships is better? I have the option to expense one of them.

Is it normal for companies to schedule more rounds of interviews with you after the on-site?
Weird combination of de-facto self-promotion under poor guise of advertising Becker’s products PLUS humble-brag of winning the EWS award. Gotta love it!
I'm happier and fulfilled when I travel. I go to the gym, read books on my flights, eat well especially breakfast, and enjoy working from home on Fridays. Keep travel projects coming consulting&EY God
