Are there investment restrictions at MBB the way there are at B4 for independence reasons?
Is it easier to get to MBB by jumping to T2 first? How is B4 compared to T2 (e.g OW, Kearney, AM)?
I would like to find out what the most common turnaround (final round to offer/rejection) time is after final round interviews at major firms.
Final round interview candidates at MBB or generally competitive Tier 2 Strategy firms (e.g. Monitor, EY-P, LEK etc.) only.
Please can you comment:
- In how many hours or days or weeks after your final interview did you hear back from the firm
- Decision (offer or rejection)
- Who reached out to you (HR or Employee)?
I’m joining MBB soon and about to go shopping for new wardrobe. What should I get? I’m a woman btw. Should I get a lot of button down shirts and suits for Zoom? I’m a budget shopper so will be going to the mall and places like Ann Taylor, Banana republic, HM, etc. No high end things.
Do you need to have a MBA to make partner at MBB? If no, are there many partners that just have an undergrad degree?
What are the cons of Columbia/Duke Early Action rounds (assuming early timing of GMAT and essays is not a problem)?
My understanding is that EA rounds should be easier than R1 but you have to commit ~5k that are lost if you then choose another school.
Is this right?
(For context: planning to apply to 3 M7, Haas and Duke in R1 with good GMAT and MBB experience)
In March, I was in MBB final round and they asked me about my weaknesses, which is so simple that it caught me off guard.
I gave an answer but I didn't feel great about it, which bothers me because I think of myself as an introspective person, I just didn't have the words to explain myself in that moment.
I didn't get the role, and for the past 3 months I've been reflecting on my weaknesses as they come to mind. I'm up to 47 weaknesses and 4,966 words:
I'll never screw up that question again
Hey 🐠 I’m an MBA student and consultant getting ready for on campus recruiting. I have upcoming interviews at a Tier 2 strategy firm and one of the FAANGs for internal strategy, but I’m looking to recruit as much as possible to increase my odds given the current economic climate. Would anyone from the MBB firms be willing to send a referral to my school’s campus recruiting lead (I have their names and can draft an email to save you time). Please and thanks!
I’m looking ahead to MBB summer FT recruiting from undergrad. As someone from a non-target university, any advice on securing an interview besides cold-emailing people to chat?
Have put in a lot of work since the past 2 years into casing and have worked extensively on behaviorals, but am afraid that the initial barrier of getting the interview is tough.
Any advice? Would love if anyone is willing to chat.
Can anyone market size how much business either big 4 or MBB generate for hotels, airlines, and car rentals? This could be a great case.
For folks who moved to MBB to tier 2 - how did you tell the story on why moving ? BTW - not getting transitioned
AMZN - how frequently do external hires come in at L8? I've been approached by recruiters a few times for L7 roles but I don't think the TC will come close to my current TC (AP at MBB). Are most L8 roles filled internally at Amazon?

Any advice for a new brand director? I'm 24.
I currently work in-house as brand director for a non-profit, but I'd like to move my career towards being a brand manager at a Brand Agency.
My education in brand planning has been informal (Planning DIrty Academy, Working at Digital Marketing Agency, etc) but sufficient so far, yet I feel like I'm not learning enough here, and that I need to learn from people working in agencies to really excel in my career. Am I going about this right?
Any Workday Consultants here? Specifically Workday Payroll, who's shelling out that money for us?
Deloitte does not let us use Robinhood for stock. Anyone else investing? What do you use? Kinda bummed about this just bought stock yesterday 😔
I don't understand why people are constantly fussing about "finding meaning" in their lives. It's pretty straightforward. Live in a gorgeous house, drive fast cars, eat/drink out every night, work a prestigious job, sleep in late on weekends, bang pretty women, and complain about things.
Fufufu, I should charge for these sessions...
Company decided to lay me off saying my role was eliminated but they say we need more people and they just hired a new person with same title.
What books are y’all reading?
Why did you leave consulting?
1. for career progression?

What's the scoop? WLB, culture, comp for an manager level?
