What credentials do you need to get into MBB. I have a 4 yr B.E undergrad and an MIS grad degree. Worked for an IT services firm for 2.5 years, Deloitte for a year and now KPMG. Any tips?
Has MBB lowered their standards? Maybe it’s my time.
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
Exhausted from the hours I am putting in in IB. Just pulled an all-nighter through Sunday night. Seriously contemplating moving to MBB. Question: How are the Associates and Consultants at MBB doing? What's your hours like? @McKinsey, @BCG, @Bain
Where do more boutique firms (like Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Huron, zs, slalom) rank in comparison to big 4 or Accenture or ibm? I know mbb is top tier but I feel like everyone else is debatable
Attending Appalachian State University for athletic reasons as I played baseball here. Will finish my degree in Supply Chain Management in December. I want to break into consulting in the supply chain and operations sector in NYC. I would love to connect with anyone in Big 4 - Deloitte , KPMG, PwC, EY and MBB to get some insight on the college recruiting cycle coming up. Currently have a 3.81 GPA, family startup company experience, and restaurant industry experience.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
Does stint from MBB or consulting in general really helps to get a notch higher than otherwise? I have seen many exits in which the opportunity would hv been available even without the consulting exp
I’m applying to the pre-MBA MBB programs but am undecided between a non HSW M7 and Tuck with $. Does listing one school over the other have an advantage?
Hey team requesting help with evaluating exit ops: 1.) Corp Dev role (VP). 200 base, 22% bonus and some bps of fully diluted float. Comes out to ~100k annually at current valuation. Not sure I’m 100% sold on the company growth opportunity...sleepy company / industry 2.) manager level at MBB. Dream job of sorts. Something approximating 200 /20% bonus. Opens a lot of doors long term. In short, trading near term upside for prospect of something better. Thoughts?
MBB recruiter said I'd hear about my application (whether or not I'd get an interview) by today. haven't heard a word - what should I do? I'm thinking of sending a gentle reminder tomorrow morning, but definitely don't want to look pushy
Anyone here exit to PE post b school? Did you have PE experience prior. Am hearing even I go to hsw, you need PE experience to get back to a PE vp. I’ve heard just a few few shops hire mbb finance project folks
Engaging in dumb hypotheticals but I'm curious: At 1 YOE post-MBA, would you pick Amazon or MBB if the estimated TC is the same, and you've been working in consulting since your MBA? Obviously this depends on the role, but for the sake of a broader audience, we'll assume the role simply isn't a backwater contracting/etc. role at Amazon and that for MBB it's core consulting. Like an option below & comment your thoughts.
Coming from tech, $500k TC. What level at MBB pays this much? Feeling the itch to get back on the road again.
Is it pretty usual to go from big 4 M to MBB? Or do they not consider Big 4 Consulting as valuable experience?
For those who have been forced out of MBB, I’m just curious — did you end up having to take a pay cut when exiting, or did you get something that paid even more?
How does Partnership work? Do you really need to buy into it, if so how much is the buy in and what are the perks of getting admitted to the partnership? Asking for both, Big4 and/or MBB.
My firm (over 1,000 lawyers) just put a firm-wide “we need to talk” zoom call on all associates’ calendars for later today. No one knows what it’s about or will give any info. Not going to be a productive day.
I’ve often heard of people with mental health issues struggling with personal hygiene. Has anyone done the opposite of that? I shower up to 2 hours a day (2-4 showers), and am obsessive with oral hygiene. Kind of like washing away my feelings of guilt....

Last min requests for proactive decks to show the client ‘we’re doing stuff’ that have to be worked on over the weekend only to be not used the following week are really getting to me. It’s a wonderful way to let employees know you don’t care about them while having mandatory meetings so the company can tell employees how much the agency cares about them.
Self 25F and spouse 31M - no kid yet but planning to in the near term. Just got quoted for life insurance $70 and $100/ month for each 2M coverage. Is the quote reasonable?

Anyone have insight into salary at Charles River Associates? Associate level, thanks in advance!
Advice on negotiating salary in LA? Brand side opp - senior level. COL calculators provide harsh revelation of how expensive it is to live there. Sheesh!
Wondering what the Health Insurance benefits are at PWC and Deloitte. 1. What are the premium costs 2. Do they match HSA 3. What are the deductibles and Max Out of Pocket. I assume they have no co-pay option for doctors visits that kind of insurance seems to be a thing of the past… really appreciate any answers! Thanks everyone!
TSA pre check at ORD T3 - splitting your line into a large one and a small one to get your ID checked does not speed up the process, and only slows down the process for the large one
Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
Should I reach out to the recruiter for the final offer? I got an email from recruiter last week saying they would like to initiate the offer process and asked my salary expectation. I replied with my answers but haven’t heard back since then. Should I reach out? Or that might impact my negotiating position for pay.
