Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Any MBB'ers willing to chat about how, and why they decided on their firm? I'm an MBA student and am looking for some first-hand experiences as opposed to relying on google.
I recently received two offers: (1) Deloitte (S&O); and Accenture (Technology Consulting). Which would be more aligned to MBB/FAANG?
Selling points of being a CPA and CFE going into Managing Consulting without getting a MBA.
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
I am interested to join TCS Hyderabad. Currently I am working for Cognizant and I have 7 years of experience. Completed my MBA-HR. Can someone please refer me to TCS, as I don't have contacts in TCS.
Just got the "went with another candidate" email for a PE gig was into. Folks I met at the firm seemed great - worth trying to establish a relationship as I head to MBA? How?
Mba hires, are you jealous of your ug hire coworkers? I mean they’re doing it younger and have the flexibility to not pay for the mba
Is it realistic to aim for a move to MBB after 1-2 years of experience at a Tier 2 firm (OW/ATK/RB/S&) in the region? How difficult is it to move from Tier 2 to MBB?
Going into MBB as an associate or internal growth strategy manager for large start up (Airbnb, Wework type). What would you take and why?
Thoughts on Smartly MBA smart.ly it’s completely free and more selective than HSW (7% acceptance rate)?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Looking for some MBA advice. Went to Indiana U and had mediocre GPA due to mental health struggles. Got medicated and saw a therapist and got a 4.0 my last semester. But still ended with 3.2 gpa. I am a good standardized test taker and am confident I can do well on GRE/GMAT. Given my poor undergrad GPA, am I a non-starter for an M7 MBA? Looking to improve myself as an applicant over the next year or so by seeking out leadership opps within and outside the firm. Any advice is appreciated!

Is it rude to suggest to a new analyst that she needs to look more professional, e.g. don’t show up with wet hair to client meetings (even if on Zoom)? FYI I’m also a female and just trying to look out for these new hires
Thoughts on EU ruling on Uber being a taxi firm > US impact? Sounds legit. Don't care much for their corporate culture, but care less for the high prices and poor service of regulated taxi firms

There's something so disconcerting (psychologically scarring?) about having a hotel room that is just slightly different than your "normal" (e.g., mirrored, slightly smaller, rotated toilet)
23 and looking to apply to MBA in ~3 years. What do I need to do to better my chances for an M7? Context: Mid-level undergrad with 3.79 GPA, top of class performer at IBM, have Negotiation Mastery and Disruptive Strategy certifications from HBS, not sure what to work on next.
First time ever I will have to work 7 days a week during busy season to meet client deadlines.
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Who do you usually put down as a reference during the hiring process if you haven’t told your teams you’re planning on leaving?
In line with the post about desi managers and work-life balance someone mentioned a few days ago, I also think that most desi managers also carry with them the typical slave (and slave driver) mentality when dealing with a client or upper mgmt. I don't expect them to stand-up for me or the team when a push back is needed because they can't even stand-up for themselves in general in life so they throw you under the bus and leave you there #rantover
