Has anyone made the transition to MBB or Big4 strategy consulting after getting an MBA? If so, how did recruiting view deal advisory experience and how has your transition been? Kind of specific, but worth a shot.
Hi fishes, I am a CA turned Entrepreneur, co-founded a management consulting venture in 2019. Unfortunately, closing it down due to the second covid wave. With total 4 years of work-ex, am now looking to switch to MBB for long term, since I love the profile. Any connections who could mentor me? PS. I am completely open to being personally evaluated for an informed recommendation on the suitable company and role. Please DM.
Hi 🐠🐠. I have connections waiting to refer me, but the last time I interviewed for MBB, I was in undergrad. Case interview was tough on me. How did you guys best prepare the case interviews?
Does having a career mostly in the small business sector hinder my chance of getting into M7? I have good leadership/managing experience and promotions in the past 5yrs. However, scanning MBA candidate profiles, I’m seeing a lot of MBB, Big 4 and big corporations. For MBA candidates at M7, do you see classmates with careers in small biz?
Hi, how does MBB sponsorship work? Like do they intern at the sponsored firm and then go back full time after graduation? Do they take away spots from applicants who are not sponsored and trying to get into MBB? Just wanted to get a better understanding. Thank you!!
Applied to HSW and Sloan and only got into Sloan. Feeling a little bummed out, like I’m not good enough. I know that’s petty and I should be grateful, but should I take Sloan? Post MBA I want to be in MBB or Impact VC
MBB Desi junta - How is the work, quality of life, and baaki sab there? Can I request you to be brutally honest here? Sahi batao
What is the obsession and appeal for MBB among MBA grads? Is it really that amazing - from afar it seems like it may be romanticized (maybe not the right word) among applicants. I know it’s way better than the work I do now, so I’m not knocking MBB at all. It’s super impressive. Maybe a better way to phrase it is that MBA applicants seem to have a fairy tale view of consulting as a whole. I get the impression that people think a job in consulting is a magic ticket anywhere
MBB exits in tech post MBA - is BizOps a good exit? What does the career path look like?
I started a new role about a month ago (exited from T2 consulting) but just got an opportunity to interview with MBB. The resume I sent in is from 3 months back doesn’t reflect this role change. Should I update the firm I’m interviewing with? Or if I get an offer should I explain during the background check process?
What is a reasonable to good package (including equity) breakdown) for a post series c startup (valuation 100-300M) for a MBB exit to a director / at director of Strategy and Operations. Thank you for the help!
Do you have to send one of those exit emails on your way out? Especially if you haven’t found a job yet? I really don’t want to send one but wondering how it will look. Thoughts? Leaving MBB
Relatively broad question and all else equal, how would M7-T15 programs see a candidate that has had pure gaming industry experience on the business side; and is looking to pivot to IB/VC/MBB to focus on gaming investing/M&A? 4-5 YOE at application. Too niche? Interesting profile that stands out from typical consulting crowd? Thx for the feedback
Do you have 1-10+ years of consulting experience and looking for a new role in consulting with: better hours, likely bump in pay, brilliant colleagues from MBB and T2s (lead Partner is ex-Partner from McKinsey), remote work environment (quarterly in-person events), and a focus on transforming the biggest clients' digital (not ERP) strategy and operations? Publicis Sapient's Management Consulting practice, founded 3 years ago with ~30-40FTEs is aggressively growing and I'm working closely with...
Anyone here knows any consultant who exited to Gilead? I am currently at MBB trying to find a job there 🙂
What is the expected comp for managing director at JPMC (Technology)? I am a junior partner with MBB and do tech work for banks.

Maybe we should implement something like automatic posts refresh? I got a notification about "someone like mypost" but it isn't displaying at the post title...

Any here from MorganFranklin Consulting Accordion, or Riveron Transaction Advisory practice? Would love to hear your perspective on practice, type of projects, wlb, prestige, etc. Been under a rock and not quite sure how these firms are doing in the market. Also would like to comparison with B4 generally and from a salary standpoint.
Hi Everyone, I run an analytics website that aims to provide more transparency for college students and young working professionals into potential career paths. I have a survey below specifically targeted for Big 4 professionals. If you have the time can you please fill out this survey? The survey will not ask for any personal information.

What's your favorite holiday?
I’m an Indian citizen on an H1B visa in the US. Need to go to Canada twice in the next 6 months. Do I need to apply for anything other than the temporary tourist visa?
Deloitte brethren - interviewing for an OT&T Manager role. Any idea of what a typical starting salary looks like? Manager bonus %? Thanks!
Is it true that EY is saving on travel costs by parking motor homes outside client sites? Genius!
I’m from Texas. I grew up in a military family. I’m aware of the fact that there’s an underground market for guns. But damn there has to be a way to get in line with the rest of the civilized world. Doesn’t have to be today or tomorrow (although that would be great), but this is abhorrent
