Best superlatives (good and bad) for the big 4 and mbb? Example: Deloitte: Good = best of big 4; Bad: Thinks it’s harder to get into Harvard
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.
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
If you had your pick of MBB, which would you join? Running a very informal poll - like the comment of the corresponding firm below McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
would it look bad to go from UG to 1 yoe in industry to 6 months at tier 2 to starting at mbb? concerned it is too much job hoping that may be looked down upon in mba apps or PE recruiting
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
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Want to join PE from a non-MBB firm. From an advanced degree (PhD) background and hence mostly exposed to the LS industry. Want to know if anyone did this transition: PhD > Consulting > PE. Is there any way to go for LS specific teams in PE ?
MBB energy practice in Houston: (1) how busy are you (2) how big is the practice (3) what kind of projects do you typically work on (4) are you hiring?
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
For those who have gotten into HSW without having started a startup/non-profit, worked at MBB/PE/FAANG, or gone to Ivy/MIT/Stanford undergrad, could you please share your profile/story? -ORM & mildly above average gal trying to find hope
What all-in $$$ package is reasonable for an analyst type role at a small PE firm in NYC after ~3 yrs in MBB consulting without previous industry experience?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
MBB/LEK or IB? An important factor is that I want to end up in NYC - born and raised wi to a SO and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. I have read the MBB/LEK competition in NYC is fierce… how true is this?
VC folks at what level and YOE at MBB/T2 did you leave to VC and when’s best time to start recruiting for it and best means of networking- sorry for all the questions in advance 😬
Long run what pays more MBB or FAANG ?
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Senior Managers what do your exit opportunities look like? VP? President? C Suite? Analyst?
no swag bags this year for departing GSAPers, what’s even the point if i can’t rock a sick daddy D patagucci at b-school
There is truly nothing like going through the shock of layoffs and then seeing your closest coworkers still here at the end of the day. Hold you peeps close today folks ❤️ 😔
Should I fly American or Virgin from BOS to London next month? Timing and price are all the same. No status on either airline so I’m in economy. ✈️✈️✈️✈️✈️
I’m in a confusing situation and would appreciate guidance - I had an Investment Bank reach out to me a few days ago and we’ve been scheduling “Intro” calls. They’re not specifically using the word “interview” in the conversation. I got yet another intro call scheduled with upper management and honestly don’t know how to prepare? Any tips on how to navigate the situation?
I had a 1st round interview last week and I didn’t love the sound of the job. It’s in higher ed. It would also be a 20k pay cut (105 -> 85). They want to do a final round with me this week. During the interview, the director who would be my manager said they are understaffed and very busy. She also said someone in this role needs to love working. I don’t necessarily want to transition to another busy place for a pay cut. The only perk I see is the time off university staff get and tuition...comt
