Mr. Fingers Crossed
I worked in the largest AUM hedge fund right out of undergrad. After 1.5 years, I left for India to work and experience my family business in manufacturing. After close to a year, I left to join an MBB consulting firm as a consultant to gain a broader experience across industries, network and to gain a more structured approach to problem-solving.
