Hi any tips to land an interview with MBB consulting. I am Finance grad from a tier 1 B School in Europe and struggling to get my CV past the screening stage.
Starting soon at McK as an undergraduate hire, is it normal/inoffensive to state to my DLG that I’d be interested in pursuing relatively expeditious promotion timelines and am willing to do the work to achieve that goal? Or will it come off as arrogant/foolhardy (happy to hear from all MBB because I am guessing it might be similar)?McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
How is the hiring scenario of MBB at ISB? How many years of experience in a candidate are they willing to accept (assuming relevant pre mba role, for instance, say in ZS)?
Career advice needed.Thanks in advance. What would be a potential feasible path to make the transition from Big Four assurance role to MBB consulting role? I have 1 year experience in industry as FP&A and couple months as fund accountant before I graduated from school and went to Big four as IT auditor and could switch to core auditor ,cybersecurity or ECG advisory etc. I’ll get the CPA and CFA soon and have some basic coding skillsets. Considering to do MBA/graduate degree if necessary. McKinsey & Company PwC Deloitte
Can anybody explain to me how PE seems to have a worse WLB than management consultants in Switzerland? It feels like everyone at MBB‘s has just a much more relaxed work environment.
What is the real deal across MBB, Tier 2, Big4?
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
What is your opinion on moving from Tier 2 (5 years, strategy consulting) to MBB as manager/senior manager? MBB office (LatAm) reached out looking for experienced consulting manager to join their team
What are the pro / cons for choosing MBB vs FAANG (pm role or non-tech) if you look at comp trajectory and career progression say 4 years post-MBA? (background: hold return MBB offer, confident can progress to EM and AP relatively fast)
It looks like I’m going to go 0/3 on my MBB apps :( Where are the next best consulting firms to go to assuming that my primary goals in no particular order are MBA placement, compensation, project/industry variety, and ability to be promoted quickly?

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.
Up for manager this cycle in big 4 deals (fdd & data analytics). Currently part-time MBA (top 20). Got a verbal offer from OW senior consultant level (CDD & ODD type projects). Is this worth to step back (both title and salary) to break into consulting? (i am interested in PE exit) I would like to pivot to post-mba associate roles in MBB or other tier2. Should i just stay and apply with manager title? In terms or salary - it will be ~50K ish low.

What are folks’ opinions on residential real estate as an investment class? I’ve been buying rentals since I graduated college (~4 years) and it’s gone really well (~25% IRRs), but I’m starting to worry a bit about concentration and don’t want to let my own positive experience bias me to the point where I miss risks.
I’ll likely be promoted to manager within a year in PA, but I want to build my side hustle practice as an exit strategy. Those of you who exited PA for your own practice, how long did it take to replace your income? How do you build a practice while PA is sucking you dry?
26 M, living with parents. Does anyone else have an overly intense mom or dad? How do you manage? Whenever I want to travel my mom wants to tag along and if I hint that I want to go alone or with GF she throws shade and comments that make me feel bad for not wanting to take her. There are other things like 1k questions when I go out, talking bad about any girl I am dating, constant nagging, etc. I lived alone for 5 yrs before moving back 2 yrs ago, not sure how much longer I or gf can take...
Recently promoted, but feel I lack the emotional maturity to even function as an adult :( I get extremely overwhelmed when facing multiple issues at work and in life, it’s like I never got to grow up
