Just joined Deloitte in July out of UG, but want to make move to MBB. Is it a good idea to start applying right away or do I need more experience before making the jump?
I have an engineering background, graduated last December, and accepted MBB over FAANG (product design & manufacturing engineering offers) . This bowl’s focus on exiting consulting into FAANG (cont)
Do MBB/T2 consulting firms drugs test 😅
Is it worth jumping to Deloitte (offer in hand currently) in order to position myself better for FAANG 3-5 years down the line? Other options include staying at BAH or trying to get into MBB.
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Has anyone ever applied to MBB multiple times before getting accepted? Or is the blacklisting thing real?
From one Desi to fellow Desi reaching out for help ! I have had some luck with MBB firms but failed to convert. I am currently Senior Manager at big 4 with end to end SC experience. I will highly appreciate if folks from MBB/exMBB could spare time to provide me some guidance.
Going into MBB as an associate or internal growth strategy manager for large start up (Airbnb, Wework type). What would you take and why?
Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
How much do partners really make at Big 4 and MBB. Let's say the first year being a partner ?

Does anyone from MBB Canada know what the post MBA comp is? Does Bain really pay lower than the other two?
Do you find companies today interview without empathy, over-valuing technical skill, pressure tests, and first impressions? A follow-up to this, if you’ve been hired by a company based on your skills, ability to perform under pressure, and first impression- did you feel you made the right decision once settled in your role? I’m analyzing the evolution of interviews and a human-centered approach.
I saw a Harvard? study circa 2013ish that said effectively “be most conservative when you retire and get more aggressive as you age”. But can’t find it now. Anyone seen this and know where to find it?

Hi all. What has been your most successful interview method when assessing behaviours in sales staff?💡 I've got so many options available but would love to know your thoughts 💭 Thanks 👍
Just got off a two hour workshop with a client and was too scared to say anything and speak up even though I probably had good points. How do you get over the fear of being wrong or sounding stupid? I feel like I let my team down.

First time potential lateral here. Is it par for the course to provide a list of matters during the interview process for conflicts? I am wondering if it would be acceptable to hold off on disclosing that information should an offer for a job arise.
Hello everyone, Does anyone use 12.9 iPad (with a magic keyboard) as a “second workstation”? For example: lightweight typing machine when you need to work on an email or draft a document, or just join a conference call. My primary machine is MacBook Pro 16 but it’s a bit balky and I’d prefer not to take it with me when I’m leaving for a vacation.
Does PwC advisory have a senior promotion bonus? Or is it only compensation raise and performance bonus on previous level?
Not financially savvy (learning). I want to set aside $2500 a paycheck for a house down payment in 18-36 months. Does it make more sense for me to contribute the $2.5k to my 401k monthly and withdraw in 2 years, or just set aside $2.5k into a savings account? Already maxed ESPP. My end goal is to buy a house.
I feel for all of those being laid off. Truly best of luck finding something. One thing I realized as a millennial in consulting is job security is non existent.
Question, photo shows my current 401k investments & balances - should I roll my Vanguard Target 2055 Trust into a Roth IRA? Would there be any advantages to doing that? Or should I roll it into the S&P 500 Index Trust? Both balances are Roth 401k contributions if that helps. My income is also too high to contribute to a Roth IRA. TIA.
