Currently a senior audit associate at a Big Four. 4 YOE primarily in the Federal Government (DoD) and business process improvement. What are my chances of even being selected for an interview at a MBB in the Washington DC area? Mainly looking at McKinsey.
How does someone get good at case interview? Been watching so many interviews but feel like I'm just getting more confused?
If it's not requested in the job announcement and it's not required to complete the form, do you have to submit your transcript when applying to MBB?
How many people are waiting for bonuses before leaving their current firms? I’m at PwC and our bonus will be given on 10/1. I’m pretty sure my entire team between director and senior plan to start interviewing after 9/15 or 10/15. Are there any other firms who have yet to pay out bonuses yet? Wondering how hard it will be to find something in a couple of months.
Hi fam, I need some advice. I have an offer to leave consulting to go to a “startup” I’m really excited about. That said, the comp is on the lower end of what I was hoping for (slightly lower than what I’m making now, including equity) and there’s a very good chance I’m getting promoted to manager next month at my current firm. No room to negotiate TC so that’s off the table. I’ve interviewed for a few FAANG roles (which didn’t work out for a mix of reasons) with TC much higher than...
Any apple interviewing tips?
I am currently applying to consulting from undergrad and am wondering what the best additions to my resume would be. I currently have pro bono consulting and advisory experience with nice outcomes, have worked on some entrepreneurial projects, and have interned at a startup as well. What would be the best addition if I could choose between research work at my university, interning at another startup, and starting another company?
Laid off. Applying to jobs. Besides networking, what are the top job search platforms/websites? There’s LinkedIn, indeed, monster and Glassdoor. Anything else I’m missing or which is the “best”?
Just finished my last Accenture interview. When can I expect to hear from them with an offer? Interviews went very well and they were hinting that i was a good fit and they would come back with an offer after internal discussions.
Howdy fish, currently interviewing at KPMG for a associate role in major projects advisory. I’ve gone through the phone screening and the interview with 2 directors. Next interview is with 2 SM. What kind of questions can I expect in that interview?
I have a BCG IT case interview coming up. Is the Victor Change case prep material helpful? Any other material I could use?
3 weeks ago I applied to a CM role with KPMG and last Thursday I received an email to fill out the KPMG Online Employment Application as I move forward to the interviewing process and contact my recruiter with any questions. However, no recruiters have reached out to me yet. What should I do? (I applied on my own and am not in the referral program. Also this was my first time receiving an email like this even though I had applied a couple times before)
Was laid off in April and just got an offer for 25% more than i was making but for a role that I am not too excited about. Times are tough and i do need to get income. How bad is it to accept but continue with the rounds of interviews I started for roles I am more excited about?
Any one from Weet Monroe has 5 mins where I can ask them to review my case study write up?

Did anyone else interview with Uber and not get an offer? Did you hear back or just never hear anything? Interviewed with them final round a week ago, haven't heard anything...
Two final round interviews in the upcoming week. Been working so hard for this for a while now. Wish me luck.
Do recruiters typically call you to reject you? A recruiter told me they’ll reach out to me today once they receive feedback. The interview was yesterday.
Hi 🐠! My firm is willing to file an EB3 GC for me, however I’m from a highly backlogged country and was wondering what’s the realistic timeline for it from start to finish? The process seems to be stressful, to say the least. Alternatively, I have the ability to venture out into Canada (as I’m yet to pursue my MBA, after which I plan on pivoting into a diff. industry). What would you do?
If I get a CFA but have zero experts in investing or portfolio management, will the Charter, alone, get me a job? If so, what would my expected salary be? I’m 40 yrs old with 14 yrs of public sector Defense Budget experience making $102K now for a Big 4.
Hi, where or what types of companies should sophomores & juniors apply for next summer (2022) to recruit for IB the following summer (2023)? This summer BBs wrapped up SA IB recruitment, EBs even earlier, and a fair amount of my friends missed out big time. Also, if a sophomore or junior doesn’t get a finance-related summer internship (I.e tech) and aims for an IB SA or FT position, is it harder to break in? Appreciate any advice and insight, thank you.
Has anyone sued or been part of a lawsuit regarding gender discrimination? I’d like some advice and would be relieved and appreciative if anyone is open to talk about it via direct messaging.

Has anyone had success with using a wireless doorbell in their classroom? Thinking about trying it with 5th grade. Thoughts?
More than likely receiving an offer for a more technical position than I’d like in my career. In short, I think it pigeonholes me into a role I’m not comfortable with and have little interest for. How do I politely reject the offer when it comes through?
Anyone feel super awkward around their team when they’re trying to develop you? My manager and leadership keep telling me that they see me owning the workstream I’m on soon and that I’ll be managing the project in the future and that I have big things ahead for me at the firm. The problem is that I’m job searching now and haven’t told any of them and it’ll be super awkward when I leave.
Can we talk about the failure that is vision 2020? I dunno about yalls office , but here in the south. We've had employees laid off , list multiple clients , and are now trying to pass stuff to India
I need help with my daily makeup routine/application. I'm looking for a natural smoky look a la Olivia Pope/Kerry Washington. Any recommended tutorials to help me re-learn how to apply? Prefer someone who gets to the point, talks about technique and keeps it simple. Bonus points if there's someone who helps you identify the best looks for your eye shape. Does this unicorn exist?
Planing on moving to NYC in the next 3 years with my husband. Been looking at potential jobs that I may be interested in for when the time comes and a lot of the ones I’m interested in says “big four experience preferred.” I work for a regional PA firm and wanted to see what everyone’s thoughts are. If I stay at my current job, I’ll be manager by the time I leave for NYC or should I make the jump to B4 soon? Does “B4 preferred” outweigh my chances even if I’m a manager when comes down to it?
How do I know when I'm ready for SQL interviews? I feel pretty comfortable with different joins, window functions, and subqueries, and I feel like that's been enough to do everything on Leetcode and StrataScratch. Anything other topics people would recommend reviewing?
Had an interview last week that went well. The next day, HR sent an additional application to fill out (basically same info as the online app). Is that a good sign or usual process for 2 apps? Still waiting to hear back.
Have a 9 day vacay to Greece in mid May. I’ve never gone that far or had such a different time difference on vacation (as an advisor) and I’m nervous about being gone for that long. Continued..
Where do more boutique firms (like Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Huron, zs, slalom) rank in comparison to big 4 or Accenture or ibm? I know mbb is top tier but I feel like everyone else is debatable
Thoughts from folks on H1B on working remotely for the month of December through maybe Jan 4 or mid-Jan from home country? I extended my H1B earlier this fall, and am Canadian so don’t need visa stamp at the consultant and wants to go home to Canada for the holidays
Does anybody do a “work uniform” in the office? I’m new in an in-house role at a company that has dress for your day (primarily jeans), and I’m thinking about doing that when we go back (1-2 days a week). I need to buy new clothes post-covid anyways. I’m thinking some casual, but quality, plain black dresses that I can wear a sweater, jacket, blazer (when necessary), shirt, etc. over. Could dress up or down with shoes. Thoughts?
Looking to take some PTO in Quebec City. Restaurant, bnb, activity recommendations? Thanks!
