I told a bumble date I work in consulting, and he later asked if it’s like big 4. I said no mbb haha but turns out he didn’t know what it was (he doesn’t really know consulting—which is fine by me) but now I’m wondering if I should’ve just said yes 😂 I usually avoid telling guys on a first date where I work at but that felt a bit awkward. What would you all have done? 🤔

Alright fish, so I'm from a non-target school for consulting, for reference my school typically sends a couple to the Big 4 federal practices and FDD but definitely no MBB front office. Is there any way in hell I can break into some type of non-strategy role at a Big 4 firm with a B4 audit background and industry experience? Like I'm trying to get a feel for if it's a waste of time for me to be applying. I've been hitting finance transformation advisory roles pretty hard with out much luck.

Directors / Senior Managers in Big 4, would you consider shifting to MBB as Managers? Or would you rather try for Partnership at your current firms or go to Industry? My current firm is a bit crowded at the top and I have 2 offers - one from a MBB and one from a T2, but both need me to go down a level. I feel like I am too old to be a Manager (35). The salary is definitely comparable and the T2 at least is promising me faster growth to Partner (on paper)

Accepted an offer to join a small mom and pop firm (~50 ppl) there’s ex big 4 there, I’ll be running implementations as a Director. At a tier 2 firm now (going on 4 years) only a small pay bump but better title. TC could be much higher as they claim to pay a high bonus. Don’t start until end of July, and haven’t yet put in my two weeks. Sort of regretting the decision to leave. Feels like this would prevent me from getting to big 4, MBB or similar sized firm later down the road. Thoughts?

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!

Need Help - 2 years to partner in advisory or switch to PE space and try to climb the way up, let us say 4-5yrs to partner. Pros & cons below, Advisory partner at big 4 Pros - fairly easy life, established enough credibility Cons - not very prestigious compared to PE or MBB partnerships or even C suite in industry PE partnership in AP/AM/other firms Pros - potential to make a bank, network, proven track record of turning around biz etc Cons- terrible wlb, miserable work place culture (sometimes)
