Need some real help, fishes. As an entry-level associate in London, which option is better and why? 1. US Consulting firm with a guaranteed opportunity to transfer to New York, tier 2/3. Will probably need to work a year or two in London office first, but working on US deals in the meantime. 2. MBB in London. TIA!!
If you could ask the managing partner of an MBB firm any question anonymously, what would you ask?
Anyone in here leave the MBB/Big4 etc rat race and start their own business, real estate investing, or hop into an existing family small business? I’m getting tired of speaking the language of buzzwords all day and making slides. Doesn’t feel rewarding or that I’m adding value to society.
Recently got an MBB offer. Really excited about it but start date isn’t until mid-March. How long should I wait to give notice to my current employer? It’s a large, well-known tech company but our team is pretty small and my departure will definitely cause a bit of chaos in the short term. Don’t want to burn any bridges, but at the end of the day I also know they’ll be fine. Thoughts on giving standard 2-weeks vs a bit longer, say 4?
Anyone leave MBB to go back to Big4 for family reasons? Was the WLB any better? Regrets? Or happiness?

I see a lot of Big 4 consultants romanticize strategy work on this forum, but are there any other MBB consultants that don't like strategy? Personally haven't enjoyed the strategy work I've done
Currently a BA with about 1.5 ish years of consulting experience at boutique companies and looking to get promoted but will have to wait 1 year due to work politics. Is it worth staying or worth looking at B4/ MBB opportunities?
Anybody care to share the major differences going from B4 to MBB outside of just the type of work? Example, commitment levels, talent development, flexibility to select projects etc
LMM PE vs. FAANG Product Manager vs. MBB?
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
Does anyone work in cloud strategy? I am just about to matriculate out of ccg into cloud strategy group at Deloitte. What sort of work do they actually do?

I’ve been wanting to move to SoCal for awhile and now that my job is remote I’m able to. I’m trying to decide between LA, OC, or San Diego. Which would be best for a single straight 28M.
