Do US consultants get assigned on projects in Canada? or is the exchange only one way?

From what I have seen , it was mostly one way. But this info is only based on the Canadian folks I met during training seminars. Generally, it all depends on specialty and clients. If you have specific skills or industry expertise and it is needed somewhere, you will be asked to go there. If your client has a branch somewhere and needs you there, he will have you go there too.

I also believe that it all depends on the network you create in the firm you work in. HR are pretty much useless in consultancies, because partners know who they want on which assignments. I personally managed to work in London thanks to one of the partners I knew well and socialized with a few times :beer . Another colleague works today in DC because he knew well a manager and his skills pretty much fit an American client needs, so he recommended him to a partner in the US and got him the role.

Coming to the H1 issue: yes, it is slavery. When I was an intern in the US, my manager wanted to give me a great position. But he was under the constraint of interviewing Americans first (normal), and didn't want to go through the hierarchical hassle of justifying his choice. He ended up suggesting a job at the customer service of the company, picking up phone calls and taking orders. I politely declined the offer, and flew home... :wink:

I think evetyhing goes through cycles, there is the business cycle, the cycle of the economy, life cylce ....
And I think the USA has passed it climax on its cycle of development and I think other countries are on the rise now which will in a couple of decades overtake America in the world stage.
And I think the immigration policy is one of the big things that will affect the US negatively in near future, because with that policy you are not allowing the country to perform to its maximym but (in certain cases) they are favoring some less-skilled people just because they happen to be born in the USA and not India :). And sooner or later people start to realize that there is a nice world outside the USA and these pople move and create growth, and prosperity at other countries which give them good oportunities :)
The car industry is a great example of how 'protections' of certain people brings the economy down. If it wasn't for the unions who make the car manufactures pay more for production costs... maybe the US auto industry wouldn't be lagging behind so much now.

No new R2 invites in the past week or so ? After sending out the first wave, the adcoms seem to have gone silent. I wonder if they sent out as many interview invites as they had interview slots on the Ross interview scheduling site.

This is how R1 went also. I think they send a wave of invites, interview those candidates, then send another wave.

Hi there, I just checked the interview site, and there are no more interview spots availale right now :(, but I think they will add some new ones once they send the second wave of interview invites

Cheers!

Update from my R2 interview (on campus):

It was by a second year student. He was friendly, not cold, but not warm either. He had my resume in his hand. He told me this was going to be more like chat session. Although in reality it was a Q&A.

Questions asked :

1) Why Ross, why and MBA, why now?
2) Ross is very team oriented, tell me about a challenge you had in a team setting.
3) What is you post MBA career interest?
4) What would you do if you can not pursue that interest at Ross ?(quest. was specific to Ross education, i.e what other concentration)
5) There is a gap (6mos) b/w your latest degree and employment why?
6) Why not Kellogg, since you are interested in quantitative marketing?
7) Do you have any questions for me?

Lasted 30 mins. Actually felt like 5 mins. (I'm a talker). On my way out I asked for his e-mail and we both wished each other good luck.

Good luck to everybody else. Hopefully we'll all be admitted and be classmates next year.

I guess its just you and manylander. although for some reason i remembered at the back of my mind that 3 had been invited so far. strange. I blame it on b-school application anxiety.

Maybe your intuition is telling you that you are going to be the third one ;)

I was about to ask the same- I have not received and I would have guessed I might be one of the first to receive it (live in the midwest).

Dosa,
Did the package come via UPS/Fedex? Did you have to sign for it? I am leaving for 3 days, and want to make sure that if I'm not home, a mail person is not going to leave it just sitting around on the first floor of my building.

Nevous- it came through FedEx and I had to sign. My guess is they will leave a note and ask you to pick it up from their warehouse. But then you are in NYC and things could be different there.
