I got an offer from a boutique outside of my home country and they are ready to process visa. But I am interviewing with MBB and they only have final round interview slot early next month even after I tell them I have an offer at hand. What should I do? Theoretically I can sign with the boutique and then break it but I don’t want them get me into the visa process. Advice needed please.McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
For those roles in non strategy such as risk or implementation, does any of the mbb recruit out of non targets? I'm a master's student in business analytics in a non target in NYC, and I really am interested in an implementation/ risk consulting at MBB. ( Different from big 4 risk)
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
With the Chase Sapphire card now offering 5x points booked through their portal, is it worth it to book all travel through them? Or is it better to have flexibility with the airlines and 2x points when booked directly?

Is it worth joining MBB firm? How does it impact your long term growth? Recently promoted to senior manager in tech consulting space and I am considering to take a paycut (about 50k) to join Mckinsey at post MBA consultant level. I want to hear feedback from MBB fish here. Most of my friends think it's a bad move..
I’m 30, with no kids, currently paying $540/mo for a whole life insurance policy through my advisor (family friend, mind you) at NWM. No debt, investing 2k a month into other more traditional investments (e.g., 401k, ira). I care less about the death benefit but I’ve been repeatedly reminded about the guaranteed RoR associated with the cash value - does this investment vehicle make sense to continuing with? TIA!
All of the memes/jokes about KPMG make me not want to accept an offer. I know it’s all just for the laughs but I don’t want to be continuously roasted by my peers
Some of these posts are ridiculous. They’re like just exited consulting to FAANG/Niche Startup with $150k base and $400k TC with 6 months of experience,you can do it too! Then they ghost or explain that they are a former SWE 😬 coming from MBB. Going to some super Niche role that people with crazy backgrounds are recruited for. Congrats, but not everyone has that background
I currently work as a PPC account manager for an agency I LOVE. The people, culture, work life balance is unbelievably great. A recruiter recently reached out to me on LinkedIn and offered me a Director of PPC role. Obviously I want the promotion, but I can’t imagine leaving my current company because of how good they have been to me. Any advice???
Well fuck. I got laid off. Just when you think you’re in the clear, 2020 brings the pain. Guess it’s true that the big title comes with a big target.
I am hoping some people can help me here. My SO is in this horrible pit of depression and they are pushing me away. They have all these colliding events in the last few months: father has Alzheimer’s.

I have a McKinsey phone case this Friday for an implementation consulting role. How straightforward is the phone case usually? What are they evaluating mostly on? Super nervous! Any advice would be helpful.
Getting ready to come back to work after a week of vacation. Definitely feeling imposter syndrome and that I’m not smart enough to come back to Int’l tax. Anyone else ever feel this way about their jobs?
Does anyone on here have experience from before the mid 1990s? Would really enjoy a super detailed long description of the way accounting/auditing used to be. Systems, processes, culture, office env..
Just curious to hear from Other fishes - how much of your salary do you invest in 401k? Myself and my husband so 12% each also because we are not us citizens yet. But thinking of maximizing it to 18%

HMBradley: if you have used it (other than please send me a referral) what do you like or dislike about it? Do you have a different checking/savings account that you prefer?
One of my friend works at a local accounting firm(Tax). He wants to join B4 in a entry level but he is wondering if he needs to hit 1 year or can just apply via referral as experienced hire and start as A1. Any thoughts?

Anyone here (or was) at BlackRock’s Corporate Strategy & Development team I could ask a few questions? Someone who interviewed for the team would works all well! Thanks!
Got an offer from EY India with 110% hike on my 6.9 CTC. But location is chennai because it's the client location as well and as per their director's communication with me it will be remote as of now and they can change the location later. Shall I trust them ? And how is work from home policy in EY India especially before pandemic? Shall I switch or stay back?
