Anyone here who made, or know of anyone who made, a transition to MBB from big law? Is so, what was it like? Hoping to learn about the transition, growth paths, how much you liked the work relative to law, and any other relevant considerations. V-30 3rd year considering whether the option is worth pursuing.
Are the MBB NYC offices the worst in terms of WLB and culture? I’d imagine there’s much more competition and cutthroat nature there
Planning on transitioning from Tech Consultancy (change management and it service management) to MBB. I’m young professional. (2 yo in consulting and 2 yo in Sales) What would be the best way to go about it?
Does MBB compete mostly between themselves? Are there other firms that put up decent fights?
Fun question just for curiosity: what consulting firm pays the most? I feel like Mbb might be the obvious answer? But idk much about it and want to see if anyone else is up there too😊😊
What are the best consulting firms for strategy that are non-MBB? Not implementation and such
What are the differences in culture between MBB and the Big 4? Has anyone worked in both?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Significant other is active duty marine corps and while I have 10 years of experience, having a tough time “making the right moves” to climb the ranks in consulting due to needing to (or at least needing to be available to) relocate every few years. Anyone willing to chat? Looking to get into MBB if possible. Prior big 4 exp and worked across human capital, tech, and some S&O. Super hard working and quick learner.

What’s the real reputation of Simon-Kucher? If you’re an American in a B list large consulting firm, would they help you move up the reputation ladder a bit? The goal is to get into a MBB eventually.
MBB 🐠, are you pressured to get dinners with your case team or do most people do their own thing after leaving the office.
Asking for genuine feedback from experienced hires into MBB Europe. Assuming a strong CV - How's that been for you, worth the effort all things considered?
Are there PhDs here who transitioned to consulting at MBB, EY-P, Altman Solon etc. I am a PhD candidate ( Earth Sciences) at UIUC and have begun seriously considering a career in consulting. I am looking for advice and/or mentorship on: 1. Crafting a consulting resume and cover letter 2. Networking as an advanced degree, how important it is? While I am in touch with some consultants from my academic background, I haven’t looked at the relationship as a potential referral as of yet.
Has anyone regretted the decision to work at one MBB over another when you had more than one MBB offer? Why did you regret it?
Family law associate. I run a docket of about 40-50 cases and work about 50 hours a week. I currently make about 125K (self-employed, no benefits). Between jury trials for CPS termination cases and the highly adversarial nature of family law, I find this job to be incredibly draining, as I have horrid work/life balance and struggle with constant anxiety. I recently got an offer with a personal injury firm. 110K, full benefits, for a non-litigation/docket manager role. Thoughts?
How valuable are the salary insights that recruiters can provide? I’m just starting to apply to consulting and startup roles. I could easily apply to some of them myself, but I don’t have a good feel for the pay because these are new/smaller companies.
Covid got me thinking - have any of you taken a significant pay cut (>20%) for a role that is more interesting and/or has better work-life balance? How did you think about it?

Hi Account friends! It’s the start of a new year and I was hoping you all could share any book / newsletter / blog / course recommendations that help keep you up to snuff.

I want to brush up on modern thinking for our industry - the latest and greatest marketing books, strategy perspectives, creative self help, etc. to feel more alive as we start 2022. Comment your favs and THANK YOU in advance!
Currently in FSO, working on a pretty big client and the partner on this engagement is a very “big deal”, a lot of people are scared of him. If I want to change to commercial audit do you think my current team and partner would give me a hard time? How do teams view a staff that wants to change team after one busy season ? I’ve been with the firm/team for only a few months.
