Hey hey all you lovely people, hope you're excited for the weekend! So this question's for a friend- would anybody have an insight on entry level MBB/T2 consultant salaries in Dubai/the Middle East? I've been told that the numbers on Glassdoor are outdated, is that true?
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Went to a top uni but got average grades - was perhaps overly committed to volunteering plus military reserve service inc 2 deployments. Looking at moving from big 4 strategy & transformation consulting to a T2/ MBB with 2 YOE. How much will they care about grades? It’s the major thing putting me off.

Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
HYP grad with summa, MBB, 750+ GMAT, but weak extracurriculars - how likely is one of HSW?
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
Is 112K for a startup good for 2 YOE in MBB in nyc? I was personally targeting 135K at least but this seems interesting
MBB 🐠’s, what are some viable options for someone with 5 yrs of ERP implementation experience to join an MBB?
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
How competitive is the mbb and tier 2 consulting industry. Any tips on how to best survive and succeed vs other smart peers?
Are there any examples of former Black consultants making it to C-Suite at a company? In business school, they say MBB is the C-suite factory but has this been true for Black people in the C-suite?
Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm. Wondering what I can do to prepare myself, are there any courses, books that would help me gain some skills. I have mostly done PMO, tech implementations kind of work so far. Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.
for those of you who have gotten multiple offers from MBB, which did you choose and why? Looking back would you have done the same
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?

Average performance bonus for BA @ Mckinsey?
I’m considering pursuing a Finance & Strategy role at Salesforce. Could someone please tell me about the culture within this organization and within the Chicago office? I know that no job is perfect, I just want improvement from where I’m at. What I’m looking for: good pay (~$140k, 10 YOE), clearly defined roles and responsibilities, great team members and a strong manager (that don’t try to be “family”), and work that doesn’t require me to work well into the evening/on weekends consistently.
I’m very into indian arts culture and myself learned classical dance forms (3), Carnatic singing, and violin, but I am interested to hear about some more arts you all might be engaging in as hobbies or passions. I really like to work with my hands to create something. Right now I’m working on a project to learn interior design using high end, business professional desi design patterns in my apt. What are some other nice arts culture hobbies inspired by India?

What’s big law like in San Francisco? Anyone have any insights to firm cultures or billable targets?
Curious to thoughts on “best time” to get pregnant/have kids. Am currently a first year consultant and would like to have one soon, but worried about my reputation and promotion timing.
My ultimate future goal is to work in vulnerability management or penetration testing. Is it possible to switch to one of these roles coming from a cyber strategy background if I learn the scanning tools, linux, networking, etc in my own time? Or will nobody take a chance on me once I’m 5 years into my career? Or will they but my salary will go down significantly as I’ll kind of be a newbie again?
Any moms at kpmg take maternity leave around the time when a salary increase should be taking place (e.g. start your leave mid-september when comp increases is expect in October)? Is it worth pushing off those 4 STD weeks before the due date to get yourself the new salary before going on leave? Any other ways to get the higher salary while on leave? Does it take effect if youre using pto and not the parental leave (maybe save your primary parental leave for a day later or something)?
Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing. *Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb
