Network connection at MBB offer to discuss CV. How do I get a referral without explicitly asking for it?
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Anyone at MBB willing to take a look of my resume and see if willing to refer? Currently a consultant with 2.5 year of experience. Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company McKinsey & Company
What’s the growth trajectory like in tech? Have a great offer from non-faang listed tech (director level) but worried about stagnation compared to MBB progression
Did anyone ever go from MBB to Big4? Why?
Looking to hear about work life balance (hours/day, weekend work, freq of travel) and consultant-level salaries (experienced professional, no MBA) at MBB firms in Toronto. :)
Where does true mission related gov strategy consulting work take place? I’ve heard this question asked and the collective answer was Booz but wondering if any other firms do this/are even trusted to do this? I respect that it would take a lot of trust to put their mission in the hands of a consulting firm...
Nothing against Booz, just have heard that over and over and am wondering about any other options...mbb? Boutique? Other big 4? Feel like I have to hunt for it at Deloitte TIA
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Hi folks. Looking to break into consulting. Have 5 years of experience across financial institutions in the US, Pakistan and Canada. I have previously interviewed at BCG in Chicago and even though I didn’t clear final round, I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Finally in a position to be able to consider this again. Would any of the MBB / Big 4folks be willing to chat/refer me? 🙏🙏🙏 McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group KPMG Deloitte PwC EY
I am a Tech Consulting Senior at PwC but my primary skill set has been in consumer and retail advanced analytics 5 yrs exp and I have a masters in the same. How should I go about moving to MBB. I am working on data management technologies and its not my thing. Not willing to go the MBA route. Any suggestions on how I can make the leap.
Any biotech / pharma oriented PE firms that recruit at the post-MBA level from MBB? Have an MD and VC experience, thinking about trying to recruit for PE/VC. Which recruiters should I reach out? Thanks in advance.
MBB 🐟 - what’s the go with generalist vs specialist within MBB? Are both pathways that lead to a partnership? Danke
Hi all, I received an offer for $100k to work as an analyst at MBB but I’m in a weird position given that I have 0-1 years of work experience but I have a Master’s degree (not an MBA). I think that I would fall somewhere in-between analyst and associate categories. Should I try to negotiate for a salary 10% higher?
At which point of the MBB career path would you say the learning turns mostly into becoming a better consultant vs a more general business skill set? I've heard EM / PL / M is the peak and after that the skills become less transferable. Would people agree?
Bain & Company Hi All

Which of B4 + MBB pays SWE/DS the most? I know they can't compare to FAANG, but just among these guys, who pays the most? Who has the best talent/tech implementations?
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company How is MBB's Human Capital Consulting practice? I also have an offer as FAANG Product Manager in the same city with similar compensation. I have 7YOE in risk management at an industry specific (tech) boutique investment bank.

Evening all, planning to move out to the UAE from Western Europe in the next year and looking for a role in consulting.

My husband is an Facilities Infrastructure Program Manager, and wants to pivot to the Cloud world. He's not familiar with software development much. Can he switch to Cloud Infrastructure/Networking work WITHOUT learning about full-stack development? I guess what I'm asking is he doesn't have to learn how to code to pivot to Cloud right? If he keeps his boundaries to general cloud networking, not apps/data?

I’m a first year transactional associate. I love tattoos, but so far have been getting mine in only places I can easily hide. I’m getting tired of that, though, and want to start moving onto my arms and lower legs (I’m a woman, and I do enjoy wearing dresses to the office especially in the spring and summer).
I don’t really face clients except on Zoom, and even post-Covid I don’t see that changing due to the nature of our meetings.
Would love to hear people’s thoughts.

Definately try out some strategy projects before going to MBB itll set you up for success and gives you a sense of what key skills you should build upon. In your interviews you can talk about your strat exp and it can only make you have a stronger case! I went from IT Audit > PM consulting > strategy consulting happy to chat
Definately excel modeling skills hold star if you know python/ sql. Storyboarding on PPT, knowing how communicate to high level execs
You’ll learn most of it on the job so wouldn’t try to over prepare. Could be smart to try out to make sure that’s actually what you want to do
Congrats on M7!
Thank you! :)
Post the stats homie. Congrats!!
Thanks :) 740 gmat, 3.7 GPA, engineering major, Asian American male
It shouldn’t impact your chances but may be good just to understand what the job is like. An impactful thing you can do however is write down what you’ve worked on so you can translate it into good STAR stories/behaviorals. You’d be surprised about how much you forget once you start biz school
