Bonjour ici !
Consultant based in North America, planning to move to Saudi. Anyone in MBB/OW Riyadh offices open to a coffee chat and/or willing to provide a referral?
Now that strategy work is going more implementation, what stops one of the mbb trying to go into fdd or valuations?
I don’t have MBB experience ,my background is diverse (12YRS) across biz dev, AM, strategy, media , measurement , project management / operations/change management. Initially was looking at PL roles, but after reading threads , that is not advantageous. Do I need to be considering Associate / Consultant level roles despite the pay cut (65k) with the hopes that I can prove myself & get promoted quickly since longer term consulting is what I want to do?
Those of you who were married before you joined consulting, did you get pushback from your spouse? Mine was a MBB consultant before marriage. When I got an MBB offer our relationship changed (contd)..
Does MBB actually do more interesting work than T2? Considering trying to switch for this reason alone but wondering if work is largely the same with more interesting projects being outliers
Oliver Wyman VS EY-Parthenon for LONDON entry level
Which is better and why (in terms of future exit to MBB)
Are there PhDs here who transitioned to consulting at MBB, EY-P, Altman Solon etc.
I am a PhD candidate ( Earth Sciences) at UIUC and have begun seriously considering a career in consulting. I am looking for advice and/or mentorship on:
1. Crafting a consulting resume and cover letter
2. Networking as an advanced degree, how important it is? While I am in touch with some consultants from my academic background, I haven’t looked at the relationship as a potential referral as of yet.
For those that went to MBB from S& manager, how are the responsibilities and expectations different at MBB Vs S& at the manager level?
JPM analyst to make 100k right outta college 😳 MBB to follow soon?
I am 2 years out of undergrad (T30) and have worked at a small consulting firm doing market strategy consulting for many of the major pharmaceutical companies since graduation. Long term, I see myself more in strategy/ management consulting due to the higher pay and earnings potential. I’m currently 25, would I be able to move into MBB, tier 2, or the big four consulting now? I understand I would be looking at entry level positions and I am fine with that.
Hi! Everyone, I am a PhD turned consultant with 2 years at big 4. I was wondering if there are openings at MBB that I can apply to? I am a molecular biologist by training and do life sciences consulting in the cell and gene therapy domain.
What is technology strategy like at MBB? What type of projects does one work in? Clients? Any insights into the day to day? Exit opportunities? TIA!!
Does L.E.K. Consulting have application block period like MBB does? If so, how long is it?
Do you guys get the sense we're more entrepreneurial than MBB? given smaller scale (at least in my office) there's a lot of unstructured staffing and project mgmt that both drives me nuts but...
Who can give me MBB referral
Which strategy firms out of MBB and T2 are strong in Financial Services? Obviously Oliver Wyman is up there but are there any others I should be aware of?
To All MBB Fish: I am a Military Veteran and an Experienced Hire. I want to make the transition to Strategy work from Tech Consulting. I would greatly appreciate it if I can get a referral to Bain, BCG, and McKinsey in Atlanta for Generalist Consulting roles.
Hey folks, anybody willing to refer me for consulting position at MBB, Kearney, OW, EYP, S&.
I have more than 2 years of experience in market research firm and have worked in a startup in UK and Germany.
I had passed the CV screening at Bain, LEK and S& London offices last year. I will share the SS for credibility :)
I am happy to have quick chat.
For all the strategy/operations folks in the bowl, how are you dealing with the anxiety pertaining to work visa? If USCIS is planning on not considering computer science as an specialty field
Hi everyone! I need your help here. A quick background:
Junior copywriter based in Toronto here. Came to Canada about a year ago and did an internship at Klick Health.
Once it ended in late August, they didn't take on ANY intern full time. Been job searching for the past 3 months. Would really appreciate any leads/insight on some entry level gig or internship that might be available in this city. I know it's year end and it's hard, but I am still hopeful as I have seen people still get hired.
Final round at Bain coming up. Do they do written and regular case? What should I expect? Any behaviorals beyond the basics?
I'm looking to get into production accounting, specifically interested in becoming a production accountant for a media production company. Any tips or advice? Any companies I should look into/reach out to in Toronto?
Between @BCG and Bain which one do you think is better for an associate consulting role in the Operations/Manufacturing sector?
A friend of mine needs a job change he's a marketing executive and looking for a job in marketing / research
Any leads would be great for him
Thanks in advance ;)
What’s the typical closing cost for a HELOC loan? I have been quoted 450 plus appraisal fees by a local credit union. Wondering if that’s normal or if I should shop around. No other fees and interest rates seems to be low compared to big banks.
I just found out I am being underpaid by at least $10,000. Does anyone have advice on negotiating a raise?
Submitted an incomplete take home assignment, they suggested 1-2 hours to complete so I did what I could in that time which was 3.5/4 prompts. After a day of anxiety knowing i surely messed up, the feedback was really great and I’m on to the next round! Next interview is a virtual on-site, they said it would take 3-4 hours! Oh and I have to present the take home assignment. Any tips on what to present? Lol it was pretty simple journal entries and creating financial statements.
I meet with the founder of the company I joined after grad it was 10 years ago and they are trying to run their business in the country im living now.
I don’t plan to join them but I’ve contacts in this country and they are looking for multi people to join hr, dev, cloud devops etc… im thinking how should share with him that we could have a collaboration I bring him candidates and if they got hire I expect some sort of commission. How should I present it ? Thanks

Hi, I am an expat living in France and working as an IT consultant. I got an experience here that recruiters insist on disclosing my current salary. Is it a norm in France? Do you reply how much you earn? To me it seems absolutely inappropriate and irrelevant. I can respond what are my future salary expectations. I refuse to tell how much I make now, and then recruiters say that they can't proceed with my application without this information. WDYT?
