Is there a bowl for all things MBB (people wanting to transition there, currently interviewing, compensation, etc)?
MBB really missed the boat on this practice area
What is the difference between getting life sciences consulting expertise at a life sciences boutique firm vs at bigger generalist firms (MBB/big 4)? How are the projects different and what type of experience do u gain?
Does the MBB clout still hold weight after you’ve left the firm for a year or two in finding a job? (Only 1 year at BCG post MBA)
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!
LBS vs CBS? For context: Sponsored MBB (US office, non-NYC). Want a big city school. Could potentially stay behind in NYC after but not married to it (odds go up for staying in the broader Northeast). Probably wouldn’t stay in London unless I had a really compelling reason. Somewhat interested in tech but that’s not why I’m going to b-school. Given all that: Mainly interested in commentary on the school experiences themselves!
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
For those who have gotten into HSW without having started a startup/non-profit, worked at MBB/PE/FAANG, or gone to Ivy/MIT/Stanford undergrad, could you please share your profile/story? -ORM & mildly above average gal trying to find hope

What all-in $$$ package is reasonable for an analyst type role at a small PE firm in NYC after ~3 yrs in MBB consulting without previous industry experience?
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
How to best allocate time, from first to final round of MBB process for 2-3 weeks? Just keep doing cases daily / focus on behaviourals / read white papers/ relax a bit ?
Any thoughts on the MBA program at Boston University? Is Boston University MBA good enough for positions at FAANG or MBB? And what about the MBA program at MIT?

My spouse’s I94 expires this week. We have filed for her visa extension in April’21. Does she have to leave the country or are we good?
I'm a nontraditional new attorney who is three weeks in to their first firm job. Long story short I was VERY clear in my interview on my expectations for training in my first year. My boss made it clear we were on the same page During my first week, he does the exact opposite of what we agreed on for training and development. I've spent two weeks sitting in my office trying to train myself. I don't think this is a good fit. How long do I need to drown here before applying for other jobs?
My work was very understaffed prior to COVID. I hope the healthcare industry learns from this experience and increases staffing appropriately.

It's been around 14 weeks since I filed my tax returns along with a new ITIN application for my wife through an in person appointment at the local Chicago office. My profile is still not available on the "Where's my refund" page. Called the ITIN helpline couple weeks back and they said neither application was in the system yet and this could be due to covid processing delays. Anyone else facing lengthy delays for ITIN / tax refunds. Thanks!

Hey y'all! I just accepted an offer with Microsoft in the FRP. Does anyone have any recommendations for progressing within the company and making the most of the opportunity? I've heard a lot of stories of how crazy the salary can get so I'm definitely interested in hearing about various experiences! Potentially pivoting into consulting/product management. I'm honestly very open to multiple pathways and at this moment aiming for promotion and exposure asap!

List on companies that hire remote workers: Not 100% of their roles are remote, but they have a whole bunch of options across the spectrum divisions.
Just got my second rejection. I guess jobs are hiring…just not me :/ Edit: I think I should clarify, second rejection to jobs I applied for this morning LOL. But to anyone else applying to jobs, you got this!!
