Been at D for a couple months and have the possibility of leaving to MBB. Worth it? How soon is too soon to leave? Currently an analyst.
Anyone at MBB willing to talk? I’m at a multi-manager HF with a pod in Dallas and thinking about other career moves for a variety of non performance-related reasons. I’m 2.5yrs out of undergrad with 1.5yrs on the sellside and 1yr on the buyside and wondering if it makes any sense to move before I totally pigeonhole myself
Would moving from T2 to MBB get me into into T7? Asian male, non target UG, 323 GRE, 3.6 GPA in business, strong extras

Would anyone from MBB be willing to do a diagnostic case with me as I prepare for recruiting this fall? I am a current student with previous experience in corporate strategy but wanting to recruit for consulting this fall. I've gotten very positive reviews from people in my school's network but as I have limited access to MBB consultants who can interview me.
How long does the recruitment process typically take for experienced hires in generalist roles at your MBB?

I have ~2 YOE and plan to apply for MBA next year (2023 start). Is it worth trying to switch to MBB first and starting from scratch (leaving right before promotion at my current firm) + delaying my application in terms of overall career trajectory if I want to go into VC or startups after MBA?
how do you study mbb prep material?
for ex, w/ crafting cases: there is a free 7-day trial w/ vids. do you think it would be a worthwhile investment to make flashcards of the content in the videos, study the content, then jump into mocks, or would it be best use of time to just go thru the vids/material, and immediately jump into mocks after w/o actively studying all the principles first?

New to consulting, but it seems like utilization targets really only function to incentivize folks to avoid the bench. In terms of billing actuals, isn’t everybody better off if you just bill 40/45/whatever your target is? Better forecasting and budgeting (good for project lead), client paid for hours so we charge for them (good for partner), peace of mind for hitting utilization target (good for consultant who doesn’t have to worry as much about hitting target). Am I missing something here?

Hi there - 24 yo consultant here. I grew up poor (family made under 40k total a year for 5 people), and never thought I’d be making 6 figures at my age (HCOL). I’m not struggling and am overall comfortable, but growing up I thought I’d have more with my salary?
I have my 401k and enough saved up in checking for an emergency, which I’m so grateful for. But I guess I just thought I’d have a big house with 2 cars with my salary and supporting 3 kids comfortably, not in a studio with 3 pets haha.
