Curious how you incorporate the wlb into the pay? Heard that mbb can work upto 80 hours (confirm this if true) but gets $100k right after college whereas mid tier or smaller firms might get 70k but wlb is consistently around 40-50 hours? How do you guys see this? The hourly pay might be better at mid tier companies compared to big ones
Does it help to have more than one refferal at mbb? And how much does seniority matters in the referral Associate vs Engagement Manager?
I have received a FT offer from one MBB and because of personal/family reason, would like to switch office for FT position (start date in Q1 2023). Would love to hear some suggestions in terms of how to approach the conversation. TIA!
How is experienced hiring looking into 2023 for MBB? I previously applied and want to give it another try early in the year.
How are the technology strategy and/or tech consulting practices at MBB? Are they comparable or stronger than Tier 2 Consulting firms?
Helpful answers appreciated, but feel free to pepper in a few jokes if you need to get them out of the way.
What are the chances to change from EY Strategy and Transactions to MBB after +-1 year of experience in Belgium?
Is it any easier getting the MBB/B4 internship vs interviewing for the full time position in year 2 of MBA?
Are the interview expectations slightly lower?
Think I've found my exit. Should I pull the trigger?
I'm 3 years post MBA at MBB. Getting good reviews and on track for my next promotion. Just landed an offer for a big tech GTM/strategy/bizops role. 320k TC (80k equity) in MCOL. Level is Amazon L7 / Google L6 / Microsoft 66-67 / Meta L6.
Pros & cons below...
How do people get high paying jobs?
I feel like the only way in consulting is to either job hop every year for 15%, wait till you’re a SM or partner, or work MBB with terrible wlb.
I can’t even afford a 1 bed room at the moment without hurting my savings
When I was in undergrad I punched out one of the MBB recruiters who was on campus at my college bar. Didn’t realize until 6 months later, that might be why I never got a first round interview.
Curious: Best (in your opinion) consulting exit to industry from mbb manager you have seen in your eu country among your colleagues?.
Need some benchmark ranges here :)
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group I looked online but didn't find much but could anyone let me know if there are cloud security related opportunities at MBB in Canada? Is anyone here working in Canada within Cloud Security? Appreciate your help.
Currently working as a consultant at a mid-tier firm, where I've been almost 1.5 years. Recently finished top in my class and 4.0 MBA at non-target business school.
My goal is to become a SC at a big four or MBB. Been kind of tough in the recruiting situation. Got to last round at Deloitte, looked promising.. and the team informed me that they went internal for the hire.
Trying to focus on what I can control during this pursuit.
Do I obtain some cert? Build more time experience?
Is it possible to move from a Big 4 Financial Transformation Consulting division towards strategy consulting (MBB, Tier 2 or Boutique)? Does anyone have any experiences with such a move?
Is moving from MBB at the EM level to a AP equivalent at a boutique firm in a fast growing field worth it? Afraid of losing the brand value of MBB but the work is more in line with what I want to do and the raise is significant (80-90k)
I’m sorry but I keep hearing these terms like industry, MBB, and PE mentioned and I know they’re important but I have no idea what they mean or who they apply to. Like how do I find a PE company to apply to???
Looking for a referral to any of the MBB's
3.5 years of experience
undergrad degree only
Also have a few questions:
how often, on average do you go into the office?
does a referral actually help or would it be the same as just applying directly through the website?
are the firms still actively hiring?

How much would an ex-MBB operational hire (Director of Strategy, VP Strategy, Chief of Staff) make at a PE-backed company? Assuming 150-250k base but what about equity?
how bad of a look is it to join a T2 and then jump ship to MBB after 4-6 months? any significant roadblocks to interviewing/industry-wide repercussions?
Which would you consider more intellectually stimulating and rewarding? MBB or PE? I have offers from McK + BCG and networking connections in PE that could pan out. Yes, I know PE comp is much higher, but I feel intellectually not as fun. On the other hand, the scale and diversity of MBB projects (defense/public sector/etc) sounds very exciting.
Can someone convince me I'm wrong? I feel I'm making a big mistake long term financially. Opinions or advice really appreciated!
Anyone able to share the current post MBA salaries at each of the MBB. If they haven’t been raised recently, any word of incoming increases?
Additional data point for a current M7 candidate debating whether to stay in the US or return to SG - recent US salary increases are very tempting.
What’s the VC /GE market’s appetite for hiring strategy consultants from T2/MBB in London?
Would anyone mind summarising the basics of succeeding in consulting with ADHD?
Context: Diagnosed with ADHD during college recently joined MBB. I've previously managed my ADHD (both before and after diagnosis) with lots and lots of exercise, but this is no longer possible with my new job. Would like to avoid the hard meds if possible.
MBB folks — any of you work on economic development or global health work in places like India? How common are projects like this at your firm, if at all?
Any word on whether T2 will raise salaries to match MBB? Have an offer from EY-P for SA (3 YOE). Want to know if it makes sense to renegotiate. Appreciate any feedback!
Are mbb still recruiting heavily?
After I started working in the big 4, I realized the brand power it has in the market.
Now that it is time to move out, I am not able to find a suitable brand to join. None of the big product companies are looking for my skillset.
Mbb is currently paused hiring.
What other option do I have?
I seek brand value
Good yearly bonus
10-15% hike a year.
Is there a minimum work experience for experienced hires for MBB? It so, how long will that be? Is 6 months enough?@
MBB or LinkedIn SOAR program for new grad?
Thoughts on Flagship Pioneering? A friend of mine in MBB consulting was contacted by a recruiter about an associate role. He is interested, but unsure about reputation in biotech and exit opps afterwards. Do you guys know where they exit to, and what are your thoughts on them more generally?
Is there any job offer you would recommend to a new grad over an MBB offer (besides SWE & IB)?
What is the exit pay after 2/3 years at top strategy - MBB, LEK, OW, etc?
I got an offer for 90k plus bonus for an in-house strategy role - is this good or bad (pretty much same base as current with less bonus).
I’m in a FAANG and turned down an MBB offer a few months back due to being lowballed on comp and somewhat weird policies when compared to the tech industry, but now my company is a mess due to the recession and I am regretting it. Plus I can still see the original position open on their site.
Should I reapply? Reach out to one of the interviewers? What is MBB policy for this kind of situation? Parting was amicable, but I don’t know if there will be any bias.
Any ANZ MBB folks here know if the digital arms (Platinion/ DV/ Mck Implementation) are hiring in Sydney/ Melbourne? Cheers
@MBB, y’all think layoffs hit your firms? Or will it be an increase in CTL? Maybe a hybrid of both?

What's the best way to move to one of the MBB?
Hello Everyone! I am an undergrad student at a Top European University in France. I want to apply for 2023 summer internships at MBB (McKinsey: Dublin/London, Milan, Brussels - BCG: Brussels, Geneva, Stockholm - Bain: Brussels, Amsterdam, Copenhagen). I wanted to know what advice you have to ace interviews and case studies, and if you are willing to provide a referral to any of those offices Loads of Good Karma to you!

What do people consider the top companies to work for in Cyber? For example, in consulting, most people want to exit to FAANG or MBB
Hello MBB sharks,
Please mentioned your pathway to MBB.
What college you went for undergrad, postgrad?
If lateral hire, then above things + companies you worked before cracking MBB interviews.
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams?
If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
What are the newest / most recently opened offices for each of MBB? Trying to gauge which markets they’re investing in
All this talk about MBB and MBBD is nonsense. We all know who the king is. After all, we are a "category of one".
At what level in MBB/T2 do you hit 100%+ bonus?
I’m starting as a strategy consultant soon. I see many people on this app talk about exiting to industry. What are good/realistic exit opps for strategy consultants (MBB)?
