Tuck vs Ross ($$) goal is MBB or big tech
Any one got any information about Point B consulting? Any information regarding the work they do, the culture, growth scale would be appreciated. TIA!!
Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?). I’m really keen to go the MM but feel like I’m making a mistake the way my friends talk about it…. In my mind a small younger growing fund is such a better opportunity — more learning, exposure, promotional potentially, and, hopefully, culture. What am I missing?
How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn. I feel like because this language is so limited in words to understand our culture, it restricted several generations to learn beyond what we know today about our country and culture. I feel cheated 😭😞
How do you guys make new friends in LA for an over 40 gay CPA? Corp culture, gay or straight, in LA is like that in Japan...either drink or become isolated in both your personal and professional life.

How is EY's work culture and Growth ?
How is KPMG as compared to Deloitte? Do you guys have to do firm initiatives, report tracking and trading, culture, etc? What’s the level structure like?
This “always on” slack/teams culture needs to end. Timestamped emails after and before work hours should be penalised as signs of poor time management skills and project management efficiencies. I hope we do like germans and labor laws are made for after work hour messaging.
Anyone familiar with McKinsey New Ventures Health Analytics team? Would appreciate any insight on type and quality of work and culture
Anyone willing to help with a resume review/edit? I am in advisory consulting and would like to transition to strategy preferably MBB.
Anyone here a US citizen who chose to leave in favor of London? I’m American but husband is European. He wants to return for the social culture of Europe but I just get traumatized by the pay in London and almost equally high cost of living as in tier 1 USA cities. I know money isn’t everything but hoping to hear about other Americans experiences . Thank you!
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
Is agency culture relatively the same across the country? Are agencies in smaller markets a little more chill (better work life balance, less chaos, etc.)? I'm getting a little burnt out and I'm not sure if it's a NYC thing or an advertising thing.

I have zero motivation to work out at home (won’t be back to the gym anytime soon where I live) but I know it’s necessary for both my physical and mental health. Any suggestions for motivation and maybe some great at home workouts I could try?? Getting desperate over here!
So I have applied for 21 jobs in the last 3 weeks and I have had just 1 recruiter reach out and no interviews yet. Most of them are for jobs I feel I am a strong fit for. Is it a clear indicator that my resume is not attractive? Or is this level of striking out expected?
Hi Imad! I recently started at B4, realizing after compliance busy season I’m more interested in audit. Internally transfer doesn’t seem guaranteed and will take at least 6+ months. (Cont.)
Director put me on a project and claimed this is my test to see if I'm ready for the next step? Ill be managing more junior staff. I wasn't promoted in the last cycle, so why the test now?
Anyone who bought a new construction home... What mistakes or lessons did you learn from it?
For those of you who have successfully started your own agencies — how did you start? As in, how’d you get your first RFP from a client?
The days when I wonder why I returned to consulting, I try to be thankful for in the ways I can treat friends and family to things with my salary. Anyone else struggle with similar thoughts?

🙋♂️Raise your hand if you think you’ve had COVID but never tested positive or tested positive for antibodies in the last 8 months.
I will never get sick of listening to teams explaining pop culture to clients who don’t pay attention to pop culture. “Ok well the Jonas Brothers are a band, but also brothers..."
BCG 🐠, what’s the sector manager role like in your respective industries? In terms of percentage, how much is partner interaction vs case team?
Does anybody here own a holiday home and rent it out? Thinking of building one but given there's barely any tourism I'm thinking my funds could go further elsewhere.

Am I naïve to think I can have autonomy in an entry-level position? I'm a year in and I feel like I only supporting other people's projects and not owning any of my own. I'm stuck.
