I have an interview coming up at McKinsey next week and need someone from MBB to practice with me. I’ve practiced with a lot of friends from university but I really just want a taste of the “real deal”. Can someone plead help?

What is the toughest challenge for a Consultant to transition from big 4 to MBB consulting? I was fortunate enough to get an MBB offer as an experienced Consultant and want to make sure I hit the ground running. Thanks! Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
If you got two offers, one at an MBB firm and the other in PE (buy side, lower MM) which would you take? I acknowledge they’re different fields but I have two offers and don’t know which path to go down. Asking for personal opinions.
Currently a 2nd yr audit manager in Dallas, non B4, $110k/yr. Hours are not too bad, but can’t take any more fake and politics from upper management, and have no aspiration to be in leadership group.
1. Do all partners at same level pull same base salary? (Think two 3rd year partners at the same firm, and exclude variable pay) 2. How does this base pay differ at big 4 vs MBB?
Anyone been able to successfully go the MBB route and be there for family / kids? Or any thoughts on intentionally avoiding the path to have WLB for that reason?
If there is a PM role at FAANG vs a consulting role at MBB for ppl out of undergrad, which one would you take and why? Not that I have such privilege now but just curious
Planning to move to a EU country around summer 2021. Anyone who is a non-EU citizen got a consultancy job in EU countries can share your experiences. 1. How long it took to find a job ? 2. In what practice you got offered a job for ? (Such as technology or risk or IT etc) 3. Did you get offered a job by boutique consultancy companies or sticked with Big4 and MBB ? 4. How was the attitude of HR to you considering the fact that you were a non-EU candidate ? 5. What would be your hints to share ?
I may owe up to $15K in taxes for 2016. IRS charges a 3% interest rate. Do I pay off as fast as I can, or pay the monthly/quarterly minimums and put more $ into investments? Also, anyone owed b4?

For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
For each MBB, what's the grad school sponsorship policy for junior who join as experienced hires? Are you still eligible and if so, how long until you can be sponsored (and is thus measured up to enrolment or application time?). Thanks!
Happy Friday! Is there anyone at BCG Digital Ventures willing to speak to me about the interview process for the Venture Architect role? Have the first case/interview coming up and would appreciate any tips and insight.
Thoughts on income level to switch from Roth to traditional 401k? Currently facing a marginal tax rate of 36.75% including state taxes. Feels like traditional is the better bet now.
Here’s a reminder for my perfectionists, first/second years, and those of us questioning if we’re doing enough. Your lessons do not need to be incredible this year. Fall back on some of your favorites, do what you can, and make sure you’re allocating time for yourself everyday. Yes everyday or else you will go insane. End each day by saying you did your best and no matter what mistakes you make or if lessons flop, try again the next day. You. Are. Human.
My father apptly invited my cousin to thanksgiving. The cousin who took my baby name bc she “wasn’t sure it would get used given ‘my situation” and “wanted to make sure it got used since it’s such a beautiful name.” So I guess I’m having dinner across from a 7 month old baby with my dream baby’s name. Super weird to resent an infant on thanksgiving, but that’s where we are..
