@MBB's how is your firms immune to the up-coming financial crisis. what type of projects due to see higher demand in marketplace in the crisis. (i hope its not all cost cutting projects - aka#layoffs)
Any NYC MBB consultants - do you generally travel outside of Manhattan for work? Or are your projects within the city generally? If you can share example schedules for first year, that’d be great!
How does one show personality in MBB interviews? How much is too much? Humour? Info about personal life? Specifically interested for BCG
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
Is the path to partner shorter in MBB vs big4?
Does anyone know the MBB areas of growth in the coming years for the Toronto practices? I want to align myself to those areas to give myself the best shot for lateraling over in a year or two.
MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!
Which is better when it comes to MBB and healthcare technology / product companies (like Amazon) recruiting? Duke or Ross? Also any other consider in this bucket?
For folks that went from MBB/T2 into Big 4, why did you make that switch and did you get a boost in title that you would not have reached at MBB/T2.
What is so good about MBB vs other strategy groups? Besides status (is their high status justified?)
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.
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
~6 months into career from UG working in PE DD, I’m extremely interested in a small pivot to Restructuring & Turnaround. My firm doesn’t have this due to conflicts. Can any MBB🐠 chat about their team?
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
Does MBB recruit at one year MBAs?
Want to reach out to old friends (school mates / interned together) who are at MBB. Best way to reach out to not be “that guy asking for a referral”. Even though that’s exactly what I’m doing.
How I feel after joining an MBB
I am looking to get into restructuring and corporate finance. Anyone have any advice/leads to help me land an interview? Thank you in advance.
Anyone know what the typical sign on bonus for Accenture is at the manager level? Is there a range or is it pretty standard?
Something a little more fun that got me thinking - attended a Zoom dinner party with a French guest and an English guest. They asked what typical American dinners are. I didn’t quite know how to answer fairly since I’m from the Midwest, and that answer can be so regional, not to mention cultural! What are the two meals you think of first when you think of your families? Definitely interested in anyone who is not American too!
Does anyone know what Discover's tuition reimbursement plan is? Do you have to work there for a certain length before being eligible or a contract for how long you must remain there afterwards?
Anyone have experience with CSR trip insurance? Need to move up flight back home given the impending hurricane. We’re here now. What’s the process? Airline or chase (booked with CSR points air+htl)?
Vacation Question- Westin vs W (Paris)?
Anyone have experience going to Marriott (Corporate)? What was the interview process like? How long did it take? Did they offer a signing bonus? Any other insights?
We are a couple in early 30s, no kids but planning to have one in the next year. Currently living in Seattle and working in FAANG. If both our jobs become remote permanently we would like to relocate
Looking to burn some BonVoy points and suite night awards on a hotel in NYC. Anyone know any hotels with great suites, good for a group of people?
Just finished an in person interview. I felt like it went horribly. When I asked what I can expect for next steps, the interviewer said “we’ll discuss and I’ll let recruiter know to have (cont)
I must confess that I have been purposefully making mistakes in my work to get my partner to yell at me 😩 he started not catching my mistakes so I had to make them more egregious. I fear that my kink might end up getting me fired 🥲
What would you all say is the sweet spot at which to exit consulting? Is it at the manager level?
Tips on planning lessons that could be delivered over any medium: online, in person, flipped, etc?
Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?
Anyone cracked the order in which GSB sends out interview invites? Does submitting early mean you should hear earlier?
At what age did you save your first billion? P.s. I’ve spent two months at a big 4 how do I get to McKinsey?
