How do I get MBB good @ PPT? I’m a staff 2 in consulting & have only had long term projects; teams rarely used decks. I know ppt well, so the Q is more directed towards designing pretty slides.

All my MBB 🐠, is there anyone who would be willing to chat with me about your role and experience, the company culture and work and potentially work with me to see if I am a good fit and also if you would be willing to refer me? I am currently a Senior Consultant at EY.
I’m currently interview and I’m nervous about going to a new job that is hybrid or remote at the moment. A big reason I was successful in my current position was by earning people respect through having a good attitude, doing whatever work was asked of me, and showing that I genuinely care/want to learn. I feel like without being in person it will be much harder to develop these personal relationships with coworkers and earn their trust. Am I overthinking this?

Coming back to D in October after LOA. During that LOA, I was approached by other firms, and received 3 offers. I do want to stay at D but if they cant match the offers I received, I will leave (offers include 30% increase and a promotion). How should I go about this? Do I contact my coach and let him know that I would like to stay but received different offers and I want to know if Deloitte can match them?
Currently a second-year associate at a regional firm. I have become really unhappy with the life-style at a firm and the constant stress of meeting my billable requirements. It was always my goal to go in-house, but I know I likely lack the requisite experience to make a move somewhere that can offer meaningful advancement. Any advice? I know it will likely be that I need to “stick it out” for a few more years, but I am just extremely dissatisfied with the prospect of being at a firm for years.

I have a good life, good family, wife, kids, good job, and a good salary. But sometimes I feel that I want to take a Mulligan. In my mind, I replay my life from different points. 8 years old, 10, 13, 15 etc. All times when I see decisions I made affecting my life’s trajectory. I want to stop this but do not know how. Does anyone else do this? Any advice on how to stop?
