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

Recently got an MBB offer. Really excited about it but start date isn’t until mid-March. How long should I wait to give notice to my current employer? It’s a large, well-known tech company but our team is pretty small and my departure will definitely cause a bit of chaos in the short term. Don’t want to burn any bridges, but at the end of the day I also know they’ll be fine. Thoughts on giving standard 2-weeks vs a bit longer, say 4?
Hey guys, I just found this group and I’m hoping for some guidance/advice! I’m hoping to get into one of the Big 4s or MBB and finally got a few referrals once joining FB. I am 29, have an MA in IOP, and 10 YEO. I have never worked for a non-Jewish company (despite trying pretty damn hard to get out) and I’m freaking out. I have no concept of normal professionalism, strategy for navigating the workplace and the real world in corporate USA,(cont. in comment)

Generalist🐠at MBB: do corp dev roles at FAANG, or operational VC/PE roles, care that you were a “generalist” when exiting? I’ve been approached for data analytics roles at MBB (some specialized), but everyone tells me to go generalist when starting....

Anyone switch firms just to bail on an overwhelming backlog of work, and reset their docket? No end in sight, more work pushed daily, and no one to push to downstream. Is this just what life is now, until being let go for eventually missing a deadline?
