Possible. Not common.

Tons of folks from my UG started at B4 advisory and got into M7s after a few years, totally common. Granted, went to a top 10 undergrad for business (had MBB recruit on campus), and most these folks had solid GPAs (least above 3.6)

Very much possible and fairly common.

What’s the difference between big 4 advisory and consulting? Some firms (like EY) call all consulting projects “Advisory”.

Maybe OP is talking about Risk consulting. I think it’s generally seen as less prestigious than “consulting”.

Me.

Me and many others! Def possible/common

Absolutely possible. Over the last ten years, I have helped hundreds of people get into M7 schools and they come from all sorts of backgrounds

Me. Certainly possible and common. Although I see Deloitte represented more than other B4. Probably because they sponsor.

Anything is possible!

A couple questions for the turnaround consulting fishes: 1. Is FP&A experience valuable for restructuring/turnaround consulting? I’m a CPA with experience in Big 4 FDD and a short stint in IB. Total work experience is a little over 2 years. I recently joined a RE company as a Sr FA in FP&A where I expect that I’ll be mostly doing budgeting & forecasting work. 2. If my goal is turnaround consulting, what should I focus on right now to best position myself? I appreciate any insights/guidance.

Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?

I’ve always been so assured that B4 and partnership were ultimately what my career needed to be, but now the allure of staying in mgmt consulting is slowly becoming less attractive and that I need to start considering these bigger tech companies.
