Have a ton of Aeroplan points saved up. Debating whether to save them for travel or use them for an Apple Watch. Any tips? Is it generally better value to use them for travelling?
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?

Question for MBB+ other Pure Strategy firms (e.g. ATK, S& etc.). Would you say that your jobs are interesting and satisfying? Thinking about getting an MBA to make the jump. Coming from Big 4 Tech
Are most MBB partners pompous and full of it? Every partner I’ve worked with is obsessed with “second order insights” and “complex problem solving”, but we’re literally just crunching excel data to tell the clients what they already know...
If my firm mandates the vaccine and I don’t provide proof, do they have to pay me severance when they fire me? FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m vaccinated, I just don’t want to work here anymore and I would like some extra $$$ 😂😂😂😂

Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self...

Currently getting an MBA (Big 12 school in Texas, not UT) and working as an implementation consultant with an ERP company. My goal is to get into strategy/transformation consulting with one of the big four. Worth it to apply now (I do meet qualifications) or wait until I graduate December 2022?
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays.

Would appreciate any insight on reputation and career development prospects.
