If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐
If you could ask the managing partner of an MBB firm any question anonymously, what would you ask?

Anyone in here leave the MBB/Big4 etc rat race and start their own business, real estate investing, or hop into an existing family small business? I’m getting tired of speaking the language of buzzwords all day and making slides. Doesn’t feel rewarding or that I’m adding value to society.
Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!
Does anyone work in cloud strategy? I am just about to matriculate out of ccg into cloud strategy group at Deloitte. What sort of work do they actually do? (I’ve seen previous posts but not much detail) Also, do other Big 4, ACN and MBB also have cloud strategy practices? If so, how do they compare?
Has anyone here (MBB or similar hours) ever attempted to do a masters part-time? I feel like it’s out of reach for me unless I stop working or switch jobs, but would love to hear other perspectives.
Hey, where can I learn more about employment in FAANG?

Is there still a big hiring push at mbb?
I feel like such a Noob. I’ve been doing Salesforce implementation consulting for 5 years and now realizing this whole other ball park with Strategy consulting at places like MBB.

I'm currently in biotech as a program manager, and I want to jump to consulting so that I can land in corporate strategy/BD or potentially commercial strategy / new products planning. What's the best strategy to get noticed by MBB outside of their more common recruiting pathways? I have a master's in business, biochem PhD, and ~3 YOE in a large cap biotech. I've connected with people here from life science specialist firms, but I want to know if shooting for MBB is realistic.

I’m a new manager and am trying to get off a client. Need guidance if I should do it. I work with a very nice senior manager who is up for partner. She gave me a very decent review.
