Any take on whether working in a capability center at a MBB firm is better than consulting at others lower tiers? Talking terms of quality of work, reputation, pay, career growth, etc.

I've seen folks make the transition from support staff (e.g., research) to client service, but I wouldn't say it's generally a good place for career growth.

How much do you care about MBB as a name?

SM1...how much would future prospective employers care is what would drive how much I care. It’s only one of few factors I listed above as well.

Zero. Delivery centers are where careers die

M1 yeah the whole...”grow at your own pace”, “better work life balance”, pitch is quite a deterrent.

I’m convinced that the reason some of these firms are so prestigious is because they have intentionally exclusionary recruitment practices. I used to believe that you had to already be rich to get hired at MBB. Now being on the other side of the recruitment process , I really do feel that it rings true. I hate the way we evaluate candidates and decide on who is “high priority” during coffee chats.

Does MBB recruiting happen throughout the year for experienced hires or is there a more defined time period you should be targeting?
