Hm sounds like you need a Deloitte referral. All jokes aside good luck you got this!

funny

Haha, thank you!! I will reach out to you if I need that Deloitte referral.

Recommend reading up on what MBB entails - hours, case types, kinds of work performed, etc. If you’re at PWC, you should be able to get involved with things closer to strategy internally, if not directly with s&. That will help for the interviews as well. Happy to DM if you’d like. You may well get the offer but highly recommend understanding the role first. 60-100 hour weeks, unstructured/ambiguous environments, iterative deck creation, etc. Do a lot of research on this so you know what you’re getting yourself into. So many positives to working there to be sure, but important to understand that MBB may not be the best place to “test out” mgmt consulting.

Yea... that's why I think I'm not gonna get the role lol Thanks for your notes :)

Junior partner at a specialist boutique consulting firm (compete w/ MBB primarily in our verticals) with prior experience in PE on both deals and ops side, and corp dev. My career here is pretty stable and money is good enough without killing myself (500k+ cash) but I miss being an investor vs an advisor. Is there any path back to GE/PE at this stage? My gut says no unless it's a firm where I have a client relationship and I get lucky but hard to broach the subject given dynamics. Any advice?

Currently part of knowledge team working on M&A related projects within MBB (coming from Big Four consulting). Feel like the job description didn't actually match the role, doing mostly research-related tasks and have 0 client interation. Just received an offer for Accenture strat (M&A) group, with sizeable TC increase. Is the change worth it: client interaction + travel + involved fully in project?or is the "downgrade" to accenture too large to outway the benefits. Headhunters love MBB.
