Who wants help getting into MBB? =)
How good is your firm at helping you to acquire new technical skills and business knowledge? I am at a big four, and there is 0 appropriate technical training. I have to pick up stuff on the go and honestly feel like an amateur, just pulling solutions out of my ass..I hate to look back and realize how I could’ve produced better quality work. Is MBB like that, as well? Also, most managers and higher are so abstracted from tech that I don’t even know a single good expert to ask for advice
Is Partner pay at MBBs same across countries? I suspect not, but curious to know the general estimate for MBB partners before in India / Singapore.
Does MBB, Strategy&, LEK, ATK etc allow rotational programs in different countries (London, UK, etc)? How competitive are those rotations to get into?
What are the big differences between MBB and Strategy&/Parthenon? I am new to consulting and people are giving me crap for turning down BCG and joining Big 4 strategy.
Is it any easier to get an offer from MBB as an undergrad intern rather than a full time (out of UG) hire?
What’s working at MBB like for software engineers? Are they good places to grow technical sophistication? Is it mostly ent service integration? How does it compare w/ working at a large product shop?
Making partner at MBB is superfast this guy on LinkedIn made partner after 6.7years. Explain to me?

Anyone jump from Big 4/boutique firms to an MBB without going the traditional M7 MBA route? If so, how
For each MBB, what's the grad school sponsorship policy for junior who join as experienced hires? Are you still eligible and if so, how long until you can be sponsored (and is thus measured up to enrolment or application time?). Thanks!
At what level in MBB do you specialize in an industry? Engagement manager? Also is it really up or out even as a partner?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
How hard would it be (if even possible) to switch from Big 4 Deal Advisory to MBB? Just started a few months ago and can tell this is not for me long term.
What is everyone’s opinion of the sales and marketing practices at MBB consulting firms? If I’m interested in growth strategy, opening up new channels, etc. are these teams a good route, or do they not stack up well against consultancies that specifically focus on sales and marketing?
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
Should I still try to negotiate salary after accepting a offer? It is from Accenture for a security analyst position. Since I’m basically a new grad I assumed negotiating salary wouldn’t be worth it. Until I talked to someone on the security team there and he told me I should at least be a senior analyst since I am coming in with a Masters. Should I try to negotiate to a senior role and the salary or leave it? It’s my only cybersecurity offer. Also looking for FAANG,big4or MBB referrals :)
Tier 2 to MBB - do consultants typically study case or do they already have it all naturally since they have been working in the industry for couple of years?
What things do MBB firms look for when deciding to promote someone from BA/AC to associate/consultant?
How’s the Indian community in San Diego? Any particular areas where the community is concentrated?
Facebook crashed - wanna join FAANG?
For parents with school-age kiddos (kindergarten up), what do you do for childcare? Thinking about giving up our nanny, but worried about juggling days off, sick days, and summer break.
So I forgot to calendar some new dates for a property sale at work. Now my boss had to work on Friday and today to fix my mistake. Not lots of work but just like I wanted her to give final approval before I sent out some required notices. I’m a 6th year and feel like such a failure. Like who forgets to calendar stuff?!?! Me. That’s who. I just found out I’m pregnant and I’ve been so ill with morning sickness and that is absolutely why I messed up at work. Any tips on how I get over this?

Trying to figure out what do I do if I want a new coach. Not trying to make a long post so I'll keep it short. My coach hasn't been very participative in my career and actually hindered me when we were on a project together. Even after leaving the project I tried to keep up the relationship but she just wasn't attentive during our checkins and seemed really uninterested. I know I can get a new coach but if I submit the form on Dnet is it automatic or do I have to find someone to fill the roll?
Would this be fine for work holiday party? First one ever for me out of college. Trying to repurpose some old dresses vs buying a new one
Anyone have experience with travel insurance? Basically changed my mbdi want to cancel a $3K prepaid trip and have a doctor that'll write a note for me - I bought insurance and also have it on my CSR

I work in Finance and have 2 years of underwriting/banking experience and 3 years of Corporate FP&A experience at publicly traded big banks. I’ve been applying to finance jobs like crazy and interviewing and very doing well, but still no offer. Is something wrong with me?
How do I switch teams or pursue another role at the firm? I’m a first year associate who just finished their first year at the firm. Do I just apply to an opening that I see? Also my RL quit this week so do I need permission from anyone to transfer? Or just apply to roles I like?
I hope everyone at EY will book vacation in November/December to use the accrued hours they EARNED. This PTO thing really is a shame, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the other B4 follow suit. The one thing we all have in common is leadership finding creative ways to screw over employees.
Is it possible to make a million in any sales position? I see so many classes and books on how to be a millionaire by selling. Seems like BS.
Ladies - going to negotiate a payrise next week. Received an unsatisfactory (<$2k) bump with promotion. Getting offers $60k above current pay from industry. Am nervous... Any tips / anecdotes? TIA 🙏
Hi Tech Strategy/ Implementation/ Analytics 🐠 Would anyone be willing to take a look at a resume I’m prepping to exit to an industry role that combines the 3 practice areas above and offer feedback? Want to ensure I’m telling a cohesive story with my experience and presenting it well. Role seems cool but is a bit of a reach. Recruiter reached out on LinkedIn so can’t hurt to apply, right? Thanks IA
Send kids to private school or move to a 10/10 school area? The average price of home is $1 mill in good areas... rent is $4000. Private school in my sub urban area is $1200 per month for 1 kid. I only have 1 kid right now but planning 1 more in next 2 years
How long is too long before meeting an SO’s parents? We’ve been together a little over 2.5 years and I still haven’t met them. Part of it is because they’re in India and we’re in the US and covid travel bans won’t allow it, but they have suggested FaceTime and my SO refuses. I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?
Why is leaving for Microsoft not seen as good as FAANG? I’d argue Microsoft is probably better than Netflix at the minimum
Seeking advice on my dilemma. Currently a Manager at Deloitte, with a possible Senior Manager promotion in 2023. No guarantees of course. Awaiting EB3 EAD. Also initiating an EB2 app. Should I try and move to a different Big4 firm if I can get a level bump? New EB2 app, PERM and I-140 approval (premium) might take a year. Will need 485j. Or should I just stay at Deloitte and try for the SM promotion, while waiting for my EB2 EAD? Current base: $183K, 12 YOE.
