Chance to lateral from T2 to MBB in Southeast Asia.
Hey folks, can anyone speak to how MBB exits vary by office location? I am specifically interested in PE/VC. Will PE/VC firms in the northeast strongly prefer local candidates from northeast MBB offices, or is this irrelevant so long as your casework is related to the work these firms do? Thanks!
What do MBB partners exit to typically at FAANG? What comp changes do they see? Can they score a manager role in tech if they have a strong tech background (STEM PhD etc.)?
Off note: What happens to a partners stake when they leave an MBB? Do they get paid out or something?

Can anyone let me know how easy it is to apply to a consulting firm in Dubai directly coming from London? I am currently working at a T2 strategy firm in London and my partner and I want to relocate in ~1.5 years. My firm does not have an office in Dubai whilst my partners firm does. Is it possible to apply straight (rather than moving laterally in London, waiting a few years then transferring?) interested in MBB views too. (I would have roughly 2.5 YOE by then)
Fish who exited big 4 at the manager level to manager equivalent at MBB. What was your experience? No change? Big change? Have an offer from BCG and curious to hear other stories. Thanks!
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company My MBB🐠, when applying as a lateral, say I am applying to the NY offices, do my referrals have to be from people based out of the NY office for them to have an impact, or they would also work if they are from ppl in other offices?
Context: currently at a T2 in NYC, but most of my college friends who work at MBB are in the Midwest

MBB, how strong is your MBA sponsorship program and if the case you decide not to go to MBA is there a disadvantage (i.e, can't get promoted to SA quicker)
What is the best/fastest way to become a partner/director (Consulting) at MBB or at a Big 4?
Feel as if I’m constantly behind peers in terms of career progression (e.g. MBB/ FAANG) despite having a decent-ish background (tier 2 consulting and now at top tier finance company in strategy role). I find that the companies I’ve worked at have very set progression based on tenure, with no room for negotiation. I’m really ambitious/ hardworking and I am not sure where to go that would match my goals of career progression. Is it just MBB/ FAANG or is there anywhere else? Any ideas?
As a young undergraduate from a tier 1 college, how do I break into in the strategy consulting arms of big 4 or MBB. I am keen to work in the front end office rather than the capability centers.

What are some other roles that could be a good fit for me?

Do you consider pet supplies part of groceries? My girlfriend and I recently re-balanced how we share expenses and I said I would take 100% of the groceries. We were previously going 50/50 on both groceries and pet supplies which I always took as being 2 different expenses but she is saying that the pet supplies should be covered by me 100% as well instead of 50/50. Thoughts?

You're at a T2 in SEA and want to lateral to an MBB in SEA?
Possible but wildly variable. MBB don't have quite as many people in SEA as in the more developed markets, but they're also a little less structured there than in other places. I personally know people from my MBA program that lateraled. Or moved from one MBB to another.
