I feel like Bain is moving futher away from MBB. I find BCG very similar to the Firm but Bain feels like a different animal now. Time for KPMG to step up? I love to be proven wrong because I like MBB

Offer from ACN and Bain (both strategy role). Long term goal is tech. I think ACN clearly wins given their exposure to tech but MBB brand is hard to pass...

Just dropped cold applications to Bain and McK with no referral. Ballsy or boneheaded move?

Offered full-time at McKinsey (mid-sized city, hometown) and Bain (large city) out of MBA program. Generalist roles for both, comp is the same. Moderate interest in PE post-consulting. Thoughts?

Are McKinsey, BCG and Bain really better than Big 4 or other consulting firms? We compete with them on so many RFPs, we even beat them at a few... it seems to me that we all do the same work.

I’m having trouble reimbursing my uber trips incurred during my Bain interview because apparently they do not accept promo codes or “credits” - however we all know that we have to actually purchase ub

Ethical dilemma. Have received and accepted letter from a tier 2 strat firm. Haven’t started yet but am now likely to receive offer from Bain. Is it poor form to revoke the offer and go with MBB?

What are the key personalities that these firms look for? We all hear “they want to make sure your personality matches” but what do they look for? KPMG, Deloitte, PwC, Accenture, BCG, Bain etc

How big are gaps between McKinsey -> BCG -> Bain in terms of relationships with CEOs and other top executives? I’m trying to get a sense of which consultancy gets the first call (and keeps/wins bids).

Bain, McKinsey, BCG fish: if you get hired as an associate and then get promoted to Consultant, will your salary be as high as someone get hired directly to Consultant after MBA?
