Long run what pays more MBB or FAANG ?
Wait! Most people in this group aren’t mbb! So, this group isn’t how we can network and figure our next steps?
Holy cow. Received an offer and the bi-weekly contributions for health insurance is like $150 for one person. Is that normal? Am I missing something? This is a large global company.....why so much
Where should I apply? White male Healthcare consulting - large but not mbb or D 3.7 combined GPA / 3.6 transfer - Econ major @ Texas GRE: 164 V / 160 Q / 5 W 2 solid professor recs and good supervisor
On business in Europe. Airline lost my luggage and said to send them receipts for anything I buy for reimbursement. What’s a reasonable amount? I’m already at 500 euros just for essentials for 2 days
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Second year Consultant who came from a benefits broker. I feel like I am very much still learning the ropes of consulting. Was asked to help on a deck for proposal work for something I have no background/knowledge in. Told by the partner that I wouldn’t be creating content just story boarding and managing and organizing in the deck. The manager, familiar with the proposed solution, however seems to be annoyed with me that I didn’t create content. Not sure what to make of this?
MBB interview to be scheduled and I’ve been given two options for dates, one of which is a few weeks earlier than the other. Is there any difference or material advantage / disadvantage of choosing one date over the other? I personally could use the extra time but if doing the interview earlier gives an edge, I would likely go for that. Thanks!
Anyone find it worthwhile to get the PMP? Any benefits in terms of new job or project opportunities, compensation, promotion potential, etc.?
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?

Kearney folks - are you going with the target date retirement funds for your 401K? The expense ratio is 0.43%. I don’t know much about this but wondering what the best strategy is.
Why is it frowned upon to share salary, comp, and benefits information with competitors? Isn't more transparency better for the talent market? Any way more transparency can hurt the talent market?
Seems like this is a good place to get a reality check on what I am looking for in a position. I am trying to leave my current firm. I am a Senior Tax Accountant. Been the only Senior for a year. Currently make $76k. Had a bonus of $4500 this year. Not sure what the bonus is going to be next year (or if there will be any) since they are moving to a new bonus plan that is supposed to be more "fair and generous" We have a Safe harbor 401k plan. So get an automatic 3% contribution to 401K.
Anyone here who made the exit from Big 4/MBB consulting to a VC? If so, I’d love to hear about how the experience is so far. (Not to mention the WLB and comp!) I’m considering a career change but have no one in my network I can go to for insights. Thx! 🙏🏾

Best way to get to LES from JFK?
Parents took out almost 120k+ in parent plus loans to send me to school out of state. Balance is still about $75k with a 7% interest. Ive knocked off 30k in student loans above 5%, but not sure how to balance helping them pay those loans off with investing in the market, saving for short to mid term events, and current lifestyle. Live in HCOL and make ~230k. Currently pay ~1400 per month towards the parent loans. Should I increase my monthly payment?
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.

I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
