Have 1.5 YOE at a boutique and hoping to make a lateral to a MBB consumer/retail group if possible. Anyone have suggestions on where to start?
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”🧐
Question: Are MBB hours really worse than big 4?
I recently got a verbal offer from KPMG strategy. Is that more prestigious than like, most other firms? Like, I know MBB is done with recruiting; I feel like below MBB for name recognition is the Big 4 and other firms aren’t as reputable. I’m trying to decide whether or not I should interview and apply to other firms or just take this one (assuming a written offer ever comes along). Also, I prioritize work culture and exit opportunities over salary, but don’t want to be paid below poverty line.
Currently a software engineer at FAANG (four years out of college) interested in getting involved in tech private equity. To reset my career, what is the most efficient route to get there? MBB -> PE?
MBB helps their employees find an exit opp via alumni connections and an internal job search. Why doesn’t Big 4/ACN/IBM do that? It’s looked down upon to say you are interested in leaving.
do any consulting firms in the US (MBB, Big 4) sponsor MBA programs outside of the country (e.g. London Business School, HEC Paris, INSEAD)
MBB -> Non-H/S M7 -> Not consulting Anyone here with experience in this path? Does the pre-MBA MBB lose some of its recruiting value for post-MBA exits? Would love to hear your thoughts
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
Does MBB hire if you have less than a year left on OPT and only one try at the H1B lottery?
Any thoughts on the MBA program at Boston University? Is Boston University MBA good enough for positions at FAANG or MBB? And what about the MBA program at MIT?
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
For those who worked both at ACN Strategy and at MBB, how is the talent pool difference? Is it pretty drastic?
Are many teams travelling again at MBB? Has your firm given any guidance about what to expect in the near future?
MBB FAANG Networth
I’m always hearing about MBB having terrible hours and work life balance. Is this true? How many hours do you work per week on average?
Getting into consulting (MBB) seems easier than getting a choice position in industry (e.g. Corporate strategy director).
