I am a Tech Consulting Senior at PwC but my primary skill set has been in consumer and retail advanced analytics 5 yrs exp and I have a masters in the same. How should I go about moving to MBB. I am working on data management technologies and its not my thing. Not willing to go the MBA route. Any suggestions on how I can make the leap.
How to get tech jobs at MBB? I’m trying to move from medium consultancy firm where I did a lot of cloud engineering for the past 2 years and enjoyed it. Coming from unusual background (no relevant degree, only 2 years of relevant experience, early 30s) makes me feel like it’s a lost cause
Does MBB ever let people specialize in Life Sciences right off the bat at the post-MBA Consultant level or do you always have to start out as a generalist?
Hi! I have an interview with a MBB coming up but still feel very unprepared especially with making the frameworks and solving cases in full. Would asking for additional extensions reflect negatively or is it better to just try my best? Thank you.
Recently accepted a new offer and wanted to post my “trajectory” / comp at each level in an attempt to be helpful to other non-MBB or T2 consultants. I’ve seen a lot of posts about ex-B4 comp for 2-6y exp so, figured I’d share (below)
Wondering if anyone started a family at the same time as starting MBB and how it turned out. I’m off to b-school in a month and considering MBB afterward, but that’ll be the same time that my wife and I want to have our first kid. This is a pivotal moment in my career but I don’t necessarily want to abandon my wife with a newborn for four days per week...
Considering moving out of my consulting role (non MBB) and starting to network/prep to move into IB. Have no long term interest in IB but want to break into PE. Is this a good idea or is moving to MBB/PE friendly consulting firms more feasible?

Hello everyone. I am a student with a strong GPA and internship experience but am worried I will not make it through the initial screening process to become a MBB analyst as as I do not go to an Ivy League school. Does anyone have any tips for standing out in the initial selection process?

Hi everyone, how hard is to transition from PM to VC/PE? Do you have some suggestions, and what are the pros and cons you see from such a change? I have 2 years PM experience, and 1 in strategic consulting (MBB). As a PM I have been involved in many commercial Due Diligences for products we acquired, and I enjoyed them quite a lot. Thanks!
@Londoner MBB consultants: I’m from continental Europe doing a master’s at Oxbridge. I’d love to join a London office after graduation but I’m aware that MBB tends to hire locally. How difficult will it be to secure a job in London compared to my home country?
For fish who have left MBB tech roles — specifically in Data Engineering — have you found their DE practices to be on par with their strategy consulting in terms of talent?
Starting at a MBB soon. I want to exit in 2 years. What type of cases should I try to get staffed on to maximize learning and exit into a high paying job, preferably in tech. Which cases should I avoid?
I was recently hired by a MBB consulting firm. I have tattoos in my arms and I’m a little nervous about it. I’m planning on using long sleeve shirts, but I’m a little insecure about showing them. Anyone here has had a similar experience? Maybe I’m worrying too much and overthinking it.

I hate having bipolar. I think the season and lack of sunlight got to me and I’ve been depressed for 3 weeks now. Hardly can get out of bed. Showering is tough. I’m tired all the time 😣
Just read something in another bowl about older industry hires in consulting and how they may be a misfit for the team. I’m now wondering if I’m too old for this gig. I’m 40 and just started as an SM at a big 4. Mistake? Should I return to the industry? Is ageism worse in consulting?
Is $55k before taxes low for Marketing Coordinator Salary?
I’ve been the Marketing Coordinator at a small real estate private equity firm since I graduated (Marketing BBA) from college in May 2021. The firm is small & heavily relies on me, yet I feel overwhelmed & undervalued. Not only am I delegated to my marketing tasks, but non-marketing related projects & tasks. I initially started at 45k, so I’ve had raises & a few bonuses within a short time. Am I selfish? or am I worth more?

I have a friend in London that has a fantastic offer from GS - he will also be in HR. But he currently has a pending charge against him that his lawyer is pretty confident that he can get the case thrown out. It’s an assault by beating charge and was done in self defense after the other person trespassed and walked up to my friend in a threatening way. My friend wants to turn it down as his lawyer doesn’t think he will pass vetting. Given the circumstances, possible he can be upfront & pass bgc?

Do you know if Strategy& is withdrawing offers? I received an offer to start early next year and am wondering if there has been any changes in their hiring plans PwC
I don’t know if this has been asked and answered in the past. I’m having a small crisis of career and have decided that instead of waffling between administrative and project work, I’d like to become an “elevated executive assistant” wherein I provide a strategic partnership with my exec instead of mainly a tactical one. Any advice on how to step into this role?

I'm currently in a process for senior associate at a Big4. The process began on July, yet between the first and second interview it took like 3-4 weeks. And between the 2nd and 3rd like 7 weeks. I sent an email to HR during those weeks asking for an update and didn't have an answer. Then it a 3rd one was scheduled three times (the manager didn't connect to the first 2) and next week I have the last interview with 1 partner. Is the timing normal? Or were they looking for other candidates or what?
