I worked at an HF and I would say the hours weren’t that different from big four except they weren’t all piled into one season. Like instead of working 65-70 hrs a week during busy season and barely 40 during the summer you work 50 hours a week every week. The pay was better and the bonus was more than 10% of my salary.

I’m on a small team where I happen to be the SME and the the only other person who knows how to do it is the VP. I have an offer to leave for 60% more to a big 4 + get title bump (associate to senior consultant) but I feel bad. I think this will burn bridges. I love manager, team and WLB. They were so excited to hire me and now I might leave them. Help

I’m trying to hop between big 4 consulting roles. Presently, I’m a life science PhD and MBA hire to EY with 3+ YOE as a Senior consultant/associate.

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
