Consulting

Did I miss my shot at MBB for good? Tried to recruit into MBB out of b school but failed at interviews. Headed to a tier 2 (OW, ATK, S&) which is great but I’m curious if MBB doors are closed.

I prefer “mid-sized firm”. :-) And yes you have opportunities, especially as you become more senior. But it’s then they you may prefer the culture, people, opportunities of your mid-sized firm. At the P/P level, most of us continuously have opportunities to join MBB firms, and sometimes we do. But more often we don’t, FWIW.

100% this. They reach out to me and at this point in my life and career I prefer the flexibility and comp model my current firm provides over what they’ve offered me to make a move.

I’m at an MBB. Honestly it’s all the same work, and exit opps aren’t drastically different - why are you so dead set on making the switch? When the time comes to do something different, wouldn’t you rather switch industries?

Not to knock the Tier 2 - it’s a great firm and I see a future for myself there short term. What competencies or industries are hot topics at MBB? Should I not think about recruiting until I make manager?
