I am an experienced consultant (13 yoe) that has been interviewing with Boston Consulting Group for a project leader role. I have talked to several partners and managing directors which has gone well. Now I have to go through the case interviews. Any advice for someone at my level to clear the case interviews?

How does a rehire at MBB/T2 work? Do I have to pass case interviews again? Can I directly enter as a Project Leader oder will I have to start as Senior Consultant? Anyone can talk about the McKinsey rehire system? thx!

Ad copywriter who’s freelancing outside of agency world, who do I ask for a reference/review from when finishing up a project? Project leader (who I had minimal interaction with) or day-to-day contact who is lower ranking but actually worked with me beyond the initial interview? At an agency I’d go straight to the CD, but this is a consultancy that doesn’t have that sort of structure.

If a Senior Manager / Director from a Big 4 wants to jump to MBB or T2 (think OW, Kearney, LEK), what level could they aspire for? Consultant is too many levels down, is Engagement Manager / Project Leader etc possible and if so, recommended? Or is the advice not to jump and stick till Partnership at Big 4? (I am in the midst of an advanced round interview at a MBB and at a T2, but the levels have not been discussed very weirdly in both the cases)

Just got bombed my second round FDD assessment exam. Totally blew my chance with moving forward, which is OK. Up next, I’m talking to EY about a strategy & transactions associate position. Can anyone give me some tips on the interview process for SaT? Or any advice at all as I go forward with other interviews? I was really excited about this FDD role until I bombed the assessment. Now I feel like I’m not cut out for anything. Open to any advice. Thank you for your time.
