Hi fellow EA fish 🐟🐠🐡 I’m hoping to make comp comparisons between MBB and the Big 4 since Glassdoor and other websites aren’t that accurate. Please feel free to DM!
Went to Cornell and everyone jokes around saying it’s not a real ivy. Do people actually think it’s a bad school or is it just a lighthearted joke?
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
Anyone have info on MBB/Strategy& supply chain consulting? Group size, actively hiring, common backgrounds (MBA/certifications required/helpful?), project types, & interview prep tips? Looking to enter as an experienced hire. Currently a procurement financial analyst and just passed my CSCP certification. Ex-big4. Thanks!
How much can MBB Partners make in a year? What is the differential with a PwC or Deloitte Partner?
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
MBB 🐠 - Can you actively trade on a daily basis or do you have any firm specific restrictions/approvals on stocks or options?
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Thoughts on Kearney compared to MBB?
Just started from undergrad (target if that matters) at a T2, seeing as MBB is raising base salaries, I’m now I’m more motivated to lateral. How many months do I need at my current firm before I can be considered a for a lateral? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Cold applied to McKinsey just for the hell of it. Got a call for a screening. Have no idea what to expect in the screen or overall interview process. Any tips/insights? (I’m now wishing I paid more attention to the MBB interview stuff in this app - I hear there’s a case? Haha 🤔)
MBB folks: how often do your firms hire PhD's?
Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them. While compensation levels seem similar for now, the other posts on this bowl suggest we end up making more at B4 than MBB. (Referring to the 1.5M number of a y4 partner at b4). What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?
Do any of the firms (Big 4/MBB) have a ban on charging strangers for mock case interviews? Heard of some people doing it as a side hustle, but sounds questionable
Looking for a Spring 2020 internship opportunity in MBB. I’d love to know more about the kind of opportunities and get any leads accordingly. Any advice would be appreciated.
What are tips for moving as an experienced hire from non-MBB to MBB? Heard M does not really hire off cycle for traditional consulting...
Any good ideas for teaching students about coins? Our first graders have been struggling to master lessons about money.
I just got into reading books, any suggestions to start with? Which could help to increase media/marketing knowledge.
Someone reached out to me on LinkedIn about becoming an author on the side. Has anyone heard about such a thing?!? The person said she’s worked with 800 consultants writing their books and marketing it for them.
Senior, pregnant and worried about busy season because half the seniors in my practice quit in the past two months. Directors have said to seniors “brace yourself”. I am already stressed and high risk and off my ADHD meds and struggling a lot to get work done. Is it worth taking maternity leave early and “screwing over” my teams? I feel guilty. Doctor suggested to take medical leave if I am struggling. Need advice 😢
Is it true that WPP underpays creatives? I interviewed for a CD position at Grey last year and they wouldn't budge past 180K - and ghosted me when I pushed for 200K.
Fixed income Credit analyst in boston. Make 60k +15k bonus. Sitting for level 3 cfa in June and have my CAIA designation. 10 vaca days/ year. Am I getting screwed?
Slack is so amazing
What is the percentage salary increase you were given at your agency for a performance based promotion?
Hello fishes! Any ideas of work culture in advisory as part of MC- financial management team in KPMG global services. Thanks.

Looking at Consulting roles at Avanade - Is associate the lowest level there? What is expected comp for NJ/NY area?
Interesting study.. After vaccination was readily available - more COVID hospitalizations fit the “mild or asymptomatic” (52% from the dataset) compared to 64% before vaccinations were readily available. Median age 71 years old. This study suggests that A. Vaccination has brought down severity and B. People are going to the hospital/ICU when they don’t need to
Is it me or is Virgin America getting a little bit more ratchet..flight attendant was meowing during the service announcement and the pilot kept giggling while he was announcing we were going to land.
Good books for engineering management interviews? Hi - i am an EM and I keep bombing the EM interviews. Typically don’t get any feedback. My resume is ok because I do get plenty of calls, but clearly i am doing something wrong somewhere. Anyone recommend any engineering management or just management interview book? I read quite a few Leadership books but honestly it seems just common sense stuff. Doesn’t help me identify whats wrong.
Any advice for a strategist entering an internship with Droga, Anomaly, W+K, 72, etc, entering the new year? Thanks
Anyone have experience using MS Teams chat over Southwest in-flight Wi-Fi? Not planning on being “that person” attending a meeting on a plane, just responding to any MS Teams chats that come my way so I don’t have to take PTO.
Anyone else feeling like picking money over creative and craft? Might be a career killer but how bad is it to chase the money and go in house? Some in-house is pretty sweet (Spotify, Square space, FB) while others are blah. Is it okay to ditch agency life as a mid-level when you decide the portfolio isn’t worth it?
