Referral from a principal/partner level should be good enough for an interview. Going to be tough in this climate but once things are back to normal with lateral recruiting you should have a good shot for entry level role.

Definitely not the most common route to AC1 but ultimately who cares as long as you're happy in the role and are on the career path you want to be on. It would certainly not disqualify you from being interviewed.

What’s the probability of getting business school sponsorship from MBB? And how does only having ~1 year working there impact chances? I really enjoy my AI/data science work at Deloitte and am 90% sure I’ll get sponsored to go in Fall 2023 (have 2+2 acceptance) but like everyone else I find MBB appealing for the work/people/brand/pay. Trying to decide if an offer’s worth taking before starting the casing grind

EY-P fishes How much is the salary difference for the same roles in US and Canada? I read somewhere that for typical non strategy consulting work at Big4, salaries in Canada can be 30-50% lower than US, but for MBB salaries stay roughly the same. Where on the spectrum does EY-P lie?

Is it just me or do I feel that brand-level consulting (e.g., product strategy) is more interesting, on balance, than management consulting? But it seems like the market rates for these kind of projects are lower than MC projects. Does MBB play in this product strategy space, or is it mostly other boutiques and ZS/LEK? Like is there a consistent competitor set we’re bidding against?
