For those coming up to the 2 year associate mark at MBB, interested to know what opportunities (and compensation) have come their way to tempt them away from consulting?
MBB Folks, how can I get into MBB with 9YOE doing finance transformation and have a PMP cert, but no MBA. Did get a masters from Ivy League. What are some roles I can apply for? Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company Bain & Company
If you apply to MBB with some experience (1.5-2 years) and start at an entry level position, do you get paid the same as campus hires or more? If more, how much?
Hi all! I’m talking to someone tomorrow on the team for a role I’m super keen on. Luckily enough (not sure If this is good timing) when I reached out to them a few weeks ago and confirmed the time for us to connect, a job in their area opened up a few days later. I’m super keen on trying to push my application and ask about the role (already applied but without a referral :() How would you approach the conversation? I’m a little intimidated since it’s at a hot tech company and they’re MBB.
Two years in and I'm still kind of bad at the job, which is hurting my confidence and probably making me worse at the job. I'm trying to stick it out for one more year (will be more like 6-8 months with externship), but curious how others who are mediocre at MBB have found the exit process.
How do I get MBB good @ PPT? I’m a staff 2 in consulting & have only had long term projects; teams rarely used decks. I know ppt well, so the Q is more directed towards designing pretty slides.
Turning 30 and just feel like I’m getting dumber. I am a smart person (at least relatively) and work at MBB but lately I just feel as though I have not been as sharp as I normally am. I spent the last week drinking and going out till 3am every night (NYC) so that doesn’t help but are there any tips to regain my form and just become smarter?

Friends of fishbowl. Need advice on two very different offers I have: - ZS Consultant: 170k base, 20k signing. Will be joining Process Excellence and Transformation under the Business Operations Group - Deloitte Manager: 155k. Will be joining Strategy & Analytics and will focus on Financial Services Money aside, which is better for career growth, culture, experiences? Note that I already have 4 years of consulting experience at another big 4 so brand recognition is not important to me

I saw this article in a page I’m learning through from mynea360.org As someone learning to recognize my own white fragility in order to build racial literacy skill & stamina for a sustainable future, I found it very worthwhile.

For support, I see anti-racism addressed in my health care plan (‘mystrength’ app...stress/ ‘you need to have that conversation’) as well as within anti-discrimination online trainings and state & national union webinars. https://educationpost.org/if-you-really-want-to-make-a-difference-in-black-lives-change-how-you-teach-white-kids/
