Hi Ladies, Hope you are all keeping safe. I am an African lady who got admitted (Full ride) to a Top 7 MBA program. I am looking to break into MBB strategy consulting. Can you ladies help me prep?
Worth it to go from M&A at D to BCG for a lead knowledge analyst role? Sounds like a M&A research role, but would be a foot in the MBB door
MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
Does MBB have ‘delivery centers’? McKinsey has a delivery-esque operation in Tampa but I haven’t heard anything out of Bain or BCG.
After so many FAANG rejects, I'm kinda getting addicted to the rejection emails and want to apply for some random MBB roles to get some more rejects! F this sh*t!
Dilemma Here: I want to get into Tech MC but don’t think I have the right educational background but if do go get it then I’m not shooting for Tech MC at this firm and will either go for MBB or FAANG
Is there anyone here who did a top Mba but then went back to work for two years for their original employer but then after that two years ended up exiting to either MBB or a faang type company?
Long shot, but has anyone from MBB switched to another MBB and had them pay off sponsorship from the original firm?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Speaking purely from an economical perspective, would FAANG or MBB offer more $$ coming out of an MBA program? What about after 10-15 yrs?
I spoke with an MBB partner who put me in touch with their recruiter. Recruiter is unresponsive for 2-3 weeks w follow up. Is it too aggressive to call this recruiter via the main office phone?
How easy is it to lateral from Deloitte human capital to MBB or a strategy firm? Seems like having a heavy HR focus may not have a lot of transferable skills. Don’t want to get stuck in HR forever.
I am thinking of making a move from a Chief of Staff role to Sustainable and Green Bonds DCM team at a Bank. I have some experience in Corporate Banking Debt Finance but are there things I should be concerned about- including the working hours! Thanks
What to wear for industry webex interview? Is a shirt and jacket enough? Feel silly if I wear a tie
Why is so much dependent on utilization? Does leadership really think that people are sitting around doing nothing on the bench?
PARTNERS: two questions —1. If you see an associate has really low hours for the month, do you imagine them chillen on a beach somewhere or do you consider they probably spent most of their days sitting in front of the computer being “available”? 2. If you send an associate a random e-mail on a weekend like “Can you pull X and send to Y”, would you get annoyed if they responded saying they weren’t by a comp or would you consider it reasonable that they wouldn’t be by a comp on a weekend?

Deloitte advisory folks, when does promotion decisions are made????? Up for M and feeling fairly close to burning out ...
My spouse just completed graduate degree in Animation and Visual Effects but no luck with finding a job yet? Anyone know of any open roles or know if their firms might be hiring for this type of role? Thanks a lot!
When was the last time you visited your own firm’s website? The last time I visited was when I was interviewing with them last year.
Women who have/had women supervisors who treat the men better than the women but claim to be feminists raise your hand. I need to know I’m not alone.
Ex-New Yorkers who are now living in ATX—how was the transition? Anything you had a harder time with than you thought? Already missing all my favorite restaurants, being able to walk basically anywhere, and as shitty as it could be, public transportation.
People that started off on an F1 Visa, any advice on the H1B process? Did you stay or leave? Did you apply via multiple companies? Pls share. Thanks.
Any small markets out there doing solid work? Always dream of carrying the SF (or comparable) salary to somewhere like New Orleans.

I’m considering an MBA, and am confused on my chances based on some of the posts here. I have a 3.2 Engr UG, work in analytics (strategy & architecture), and help the IT dept of NGO with data strategy
Just drank a bottle of wine all by myself! Sorta proud but gotta see how I’d feel about myself tomorrow morning! Good night 😘
Anyone else chase certain platform or functional skills based solely on the potential to make better money than what you were originally doing only to find that you don’t enjoy the area much at all
This year I left PwC for a smaller firm to see if I would enjoy tax if I had work life balance. I am still bored out of my mind and do not enjoy the work. I recently found out I was pregnant.....
Was upset with my comp until I got the wmail from Anthony Caterino. For him to personally email me my comp made it all better.
