Anyone who went from tech/product to MBB? How was the transition and did it work out as expected?

I went from product to an MBA program to MBB. Liking it so far - wanted more variety in my work and a faster track to becoming a manager (rather than an IC), and am definitely getting both of those things. It was a step back in pay, but the comp grows faster here than in product, so if I stick with consulting for at least 3-5 years I should come out ahead

Yes but not unbearable. TBH I was pretty bored by 25-30-hour weeks in product

Hi everyone, I need your advice. I've been interviewing with MBB and Tier 2 firms over the past few years. However I was never well prepared for case studies.

How can i lay out a plan to study? Any source you can recommend free or paid?
