I'm a male with pierced ears that's been working at Accenture Interactive these past few years. I've been wearing transparent studs at work (which are less noticeable but still pretty apparent) to prevent my piercing from growing back in at work. I'm lateraling to MBB now where I'm assuming the rates are higher, clients are more senior, and tone a bit more serious. Would it be a career limiting move to keep my piercings?
Currently at MBB, got an offer from KPMG with a title bump and 70% more salary. Worth it? I’m pre-mba
Hi fishes! Staring at an MBB soon! Understand this question has been raised before but I’d love to hear experiences people had with specific online courses for excel and PowerPoint and how relevant they turned out to be once you’ve started the job (eg Wall Street Prep / breaking into Wall Street has been brought up before but is it not “consulting” enough?) TIA!
I would honestly pay fishbowl money if they would let me filter out all these dumb MBB(other firm) posts going on today
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Does anyone here regret joining MBB? If so, why?
Currently in T1 city with T2 firm and got recruited to MBB for a role in an emerging market. I am not interested to do the country switch now, and want to avoid going through this rigorous interview process as it doesn’t align with my current career aspiration. How to turn them down nicely, to still keep the door opens for future opportunity in different market or perhaps different timing of my life?
For MBA recruiting, what GMAT scores are MBB looking for? Is it a cutoff score situation or does every point help, even as you approach the top scores?
Hi fishes.. Advice required since I am confused. Profile - MBA from one of the IIMs, Deloitte S&O, total and post mba experience = 2 I am getting an industry offer for 34 LPA which I feel is huge considering my experience and role also seems good. My only confusion is that I feel if I stay in Deloitte for 1-2 more years, I might be able to switch to MBB or Kearney. I always wanted to try the client site lifestyle and might get better exit opportunities after that. What should I do? Thank you.
Anyone moved to BizOps in a start-up from Big 4 MC? Seems pointless trying to lateral to MBB/Big 4 strat just to then move on
Tier 2 to MBB at Manager level? I have a "round 0" discussion with a senior MBB partner this week and am not feeling excited by it. I'm currently at a strong practice at a T2, and am considering whether the upside of moving outweighs the risk. I'm in the UK, where there is a meaningful pay delta at the same level, and expect TC would be 20-25% more. I do feel like I'm paid pretty well as it is. My typical hours are 55-60, with occasional peaks at 70. (Continued below)

Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!
If you have a provisional license should you have a mentor until you get your next license? Wouldn’t it make sense to have someone watching them before they got their preliminary license? Never in my live have I heard of a preliminary license but whatever but if any of my children’s teacher’s had one they would be in my hit list since I am eligible for my professional license.

What service would you recommend for India calling from US? Ideally, don’t want a calling card type service that needs to be recharged and preferably a fixed price per minute as opposed to unlimited (we don’t call that much - think 6-10 hours a month) that can be tied to my cellphone number for seamless calling

On the I 485 form, are parking and speeding tickets considered criminal acts? Also do we have Alien numbers if we've only been on H1B?
I am an SC at USI, will turn M next year. I’ve been a good performer and will likely get transferred to US. I have an H1B, will they transfer me on H1B or on L1?
Maybe I'm being overly critical, but so many peoples in here are giving shout outs for casual. You're going to scare each other off before you get contact. 🤣
