Is now a terrible time to try and lateral within consulting at the Senior Consultant level? Looking at T2 and MBB. I have referrals lined up at the firms I’m most interested in but I have yet to apply. Are firms still hiring? FYI I’m in Supply Chain/Manufacturing tech and strategy.

I’ve been in a corporate/internal strategy role for 1.5 years after M7-MBA. I’ve been in a very toxic team and I want to get out. I’ve started looking for jobs and noticed that there are not many consultant/associate level type of roles. My team has demoralized me to the point I don’t think I’m ready for MBB and a friend at MBB said they want to get out too. Any advice on what kind of jobs to look for post this exp of strategy? Feel lost.

Currently making $250-300k in an IC tech job. I have thought about trying again for MBB (stopped the interview after I got this job) to grow faster for more supervisory or strategically oriented tech jobs but the pay cut, much worse wlb, and worse tech are hard to swallow. Does it even make sense to go to MBB with that goal? Especially when I could just focus harder on growing where I am?

Hi all!

Just wondering how many cases you would aim to do before an interview (MBB/T2)
I’ve done 7 live cases and general read up over the last month and one of the MBB’s recruiting has opened in my city. Is it worth applying, rather than waiting when im more ready but risk missing the window for hiring?
thanks :)

Does MBB, when hiring experienced professionals, have an entry level position slightly above campus hire entries, or is it all the same level?

I.e., is there a “Sr. Business Analyst” or “Senior Associate” role at MBB, similar to the “Consultant I” (campus hire) vs. “Consultant II” (experienced hire) at some T2/B4

I’m seeing jobs on LinkedIn for BCG M roles (amongst others). I work in the strategy team of a big 4 and have been in the manager role for ~2 years, expecting promotion this year. Have strong P sponsorship. But pay is 30% lower.

@MBB - how well have you seen people do when they make the jump at the M level? My concerns are not knowing specific firm methodology (my perception is it’s more ingrained / dogmatic in MBB) and lack of sponsorship at the D / P level makes it hard to progress. Thoughts?
