Wasted 2 years and good health working at Deloitte, never getting strategy work. Now I'm too burned out to do MBB and will never be able to break into strategy. Fml 😤
How's MBB in Malaysia?
Does MBB has any practice that relates to construction and real estate consulting. Similar to EY CREAS?
Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
I am currently a SA at EY-Parthenon on the West Coast and looking to case for MBB. Comment if interested.
Okay… all kidding aside, is there anything positive about KPMG? The internet and social media makes fun of them. My leadership makes fun of them. Other big 4 friends make fun of them. MBB makes fun of them. Do they do that bad of a job + have that many shady things going on?
How much work, if any, does MBB do with Bill & Melinda Gates, World Bank, USAID, etc.? Could one specialize in doing this type of work?
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
Anyone in the cyber expert or equivalent track at MBB? Would really value your insights into projects, career progression, and skills tested in interviews. Asking as a seasoned cyber leader with 10+ years exp. thanks in advance !
How do I get MBB good @ PPT? I’m a staff 2 in consulting & have only had long term projects; teams rarely used decks. I know ppt well, so the Q is more directed towards designing pretty slides.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Any MBB A/C/M/SM willing to connect and have a quick chat? Looking to make an experienced hire transition from Deloitte S&O, would appreciate any insights. Thanks in advance y’all, seriously.
(1) What’s the main difference between TAS, FDD, and M&A? (2) What’s the senior and Manager salary range for each of them in a MCOL city? (3) What’s the future employment prospect for each of them? (4) Overall, which one is better and has more growth and financial opportunity? (5) Can you get consulting jobs at MBB with experience from either of the 3 service lines? Asking for a friend!😊. TIA.

MBB folks, have you encountered / worked with consulting teams from other firms before? If so, how has your experience been with some of the other firms? Would also be curious to hear from the other side as well. From my own experience, I can even tell a diff between working with ACN Strat and MC folks.
For data science exits does it go something like this? Any industry players I'm missing? Have been in process with all and currently in process with all but one and trying to prioritize. VC (supporting investing with tech expertise) > hedge funds > FAANG/high growth startups >> lower tier unicorns >>> MBB
Based on your experiences working at or interacting with MBB, what notable differences are there in their culture/people, work, and work-life mix?
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
Time for a change, so what happens next? 4 years consulting. (commercial & federal), clearance, current salary low $60k. Not sure if it’s time to change firms or get out of consulting altogether?
I am interested in getting my SHRM-CP certification this year and I was wondering which study methods and materials worked best for those of you who passed the exam. Also, what are your roles in HR?!

Is there any way to get into a delta lounge without their credit card / paying for an annual membership? I have a 12 hour long layover
If we mandate masks for US citizens who are fully vaccinated why don’t we check Covid status of illegals and prevent them from entering? Heck, they shouldn’t be allowed to enter anyway!!
If you hand in your two weeks exactly two weeks prior to a bonus payout, does that mean you still get your bonus on your last day? How common is this in consulting?
Props to American citizens making it clear that intentional child abuse is not an appropriate deterrent for illegal immigration. Huah! Go America 🇺🇸. Make Trump 🏳️ again!
Did anyone else at EY get a 4K deposit into their 401k this past paycheck in addition to their normal deductions? I'm confused by where this came from?
If you plan to leave your firm and your manager asks you why you're leaving, what do you say? I have a legitimate non-bridge-burning reason unrelated to comp or simply "big tech is better" reason. I have asked for more client facing exposure and haven't gotten it cause weird reasons, which was the factor that caused me to look for exits in the first place. But I'm not sure if I should bring this up. Should I just be vague and say "looking for a new chapter"?

US - does any MBB have plans for an office in Indianapolis? Seems like a good base of clients and I’m considering mid-sized cities longer term, but want to stay on consulting path.
Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)
Does title in consulting matter when it comes to exiting to Industry? For example, a director level position requires 15 YOE, if a senior manager with 9 YOE applies, does he have a better advantage over a manager who has 25 YOE?
Im a M at a Big 4 firm working M&A strategy. 10+ YOE, no MBA. I got here with an engineering degree. 200k+ TC. I’m considering a MBA, in fact, I got accepted to a top 20 school and will start part time in just over a month. Is it necessary at this point? Im already doing the work and learning what I need on the job. Do I need to put the stamp on it and make it official?
