Oversight

I’m getting ready to graduate with my MBA from Georgia Tech and have some questions about the appropriate title/role at consulting firms. I’m applying to various positions, with no luck, and feel like I’m shooting my self in the foot by applying too high. I’ve been in client facing Customer Success roles (6 YOE) and I’m looking to use my MBA to transition from Project Management/Client Engagement to Program Management/Client Strategy. Any advice would be appreciated. Deloitte Accenture

    Pros

    Great resources, especially if you are interested in teaching. The teaching and learning staff are amazing. If you TA, the students are pretty bright and generally work hard.

    Cons

    The pay for PhD students is abysmal and hasn't been raised meaningfully in over a decade. When you consider how many hours you are expected to be working, it comes out to well below minimum wage.

    Pros

    I got lucky. Great lab, very flexible, amazing people.

    Cons

    HR is often very slow, I got hired 3 weeks into my work term starting. Logging hours is annoying. They do make sure you get paid at the end of the day though.

    Pros

    I've been at Tech for about 4 months. I am very happy with my onboarding and how welcoming people have been. Coworkers are very knowledgeable and campus is beautiful. I happen to be in a position that can work from home or on site, so that's been very helpful.

    Cons

    High cost of parking pass.
