Are you targeting Management consulting at MBB or regular big 4? If regular big 4, you don’t need an MBA .

Yeah you can do B4 advisory or consulting now, you don’t need an mba. You’ll most likely have to switch firms. I’ve worked on engagements with a few guys from kpmg and pwc tax who joined deloitte consulting

I don’t have a lot of experiences in consulting/operation or strategic planning. What’s the past experience of these tax guys looks like besides doing tax?

Yes definitely definitely possible and likely

I’m in Tax and EY and I’ve had people leave my group for TAS and advisory so it’s definitely possible to transfer. (I personally want MBB so I’m doing MBA.)

Most of them did it around their promotion to senior / senior 1 year

Current S1 here. Is it okay if my resume experience is just: B4 Internship > Associate > Senior? (All in the same firm/practice) Never done other internships. The only other thing I could include is a student assistant job I had in college. Not sure if that's even relevant. Guess just the progression at this 1 firm is enough? Just looks a bit incomplete on the resume.
