What’s up with companies and their insistence on salary expectations? I had a chat with a company after all the interviews had been done and they asked me what my salary expectations were to “not waste anyone’s time”. Why didn’t they ask me this before all the interviews then?!

How hard is it to get into MBB after graduating college versus being in college and applying for an entry-level roll? Specifically, I’m wondering what the chances are of getting into the MBB if I don’t secure an entry-level offer during my final recruiting cycle this fall. If I want, is it possible (or is there a way) to get into MBB a within months after I graduate?

I will likely leave my new consulting job soon after 3 months. My current job is causing me to (almost) burn out already - I’m essentially doing the job of 2 people due to the project being understaffed. Management style is also severely micromanaged. I am in the process of interviewing & will likely get an offer. Thinking ahead, I am unsure what to say to my current company as the reason for leaving. I have a feeling things will turn hostile.
