Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
On ApplicantLab, the coach goes on quite a bit about having a lot of white space on your resume (easy on the eyes), etc etc. This is totally wrong, right? Ive explicitly a Wharton admissions officer say to use margins to your advantage (pack more stuff in) and have seen an application guide at an MBB, where the resume templates include very little white space. Obviously every word should be valuable, but just wanted to check my sanity here since AppLab offers good advice elsewhere.
I’m bad at interviewing bc I can’t look at charts and come up with insights on the spot (it takes me a few minutes to process). But that doesn’t mean I’m bad at critical thinking. I feel like the interview process for MBB is flawed
MBB folks, how does sponsorship work if you get full scholarship? Do you still get money (say a percentage) from your employer?
Dear MBB fishes, requesting your immediate guidance on data engineering practice. I currently have to pick one between FAANG vs MBB. Same base but 25K RSU difference. Please help me with your insights! Moving from industry in Midwest region.
What are the most desired consulting companies in top business schools APART from MBB and Big 4?
Who wants help getting into MBB? =)
Anyone besides me leave the Big 4 or MBB and get pestered by GLG to do 1099 project work? They are relentless.
Anyone else here feel like joining a tech company or startup more than joining MBB. I mean mbb is super prestigious and all but it’s not the long play for me
Any suggestions on how to find referral for FAANG/MBB? Tried message recruiter on LinkedIn not much reply:(
Out of curiosity- are MBB and Big 4 sold out? I am hearing mixed reactions..ZS is fully sold, Deloitte is firing, Mck is more busy than ever before....what’s the word on the street
Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?
What are some of the resources you use for researching business / industry trends? Gartner, HBR, MBB white papers?
Does MBB, Strategy&, LEK, ATK etc allow rotational programs in different countries (London, UK, etc)? How competitive are those rotations to get into?
What excel training programmes/service providers do MBB firms provide to new joiners as part of their onboarding training?
Just joined T2 firm out of undergrad this past summer. When is the best time to apply if I want to make the jump to MBB? Looking to join asap
Making partner at MBB is superfast this guy on LinkedIn made partner after 6.7years. Explain to me?
Did anyone make a transition from being an MBB data scientist to a FAANG data scientist? 1. How did you differentiate your value proposition? Given the solid technical bar, does consult and business skills create an advantage? 2. How do you feel about the change? 3. Any tips on the preparation process?
Have you ever...had a parent email you asking you to come teach their kid at their house?!?!?
What are some “fair” news sources? I’m sick of both extreme sides. It’s overwhelming trying to figure out what’s accurate anymore.
Should I put off having a baby until 2022? My S/O and I have always talked about having a big family. I want to start on my mid 20s and hopefully finish having kids by my mid 30s (I want 3-4 kids). Should I wait until after COVID to start having kids? Life is unpredictable so who’s to say that after one pandemic there won’t be another. I’m hesitant to wait but scared now to start trying for a baby.
I got laid off as a AE, do you think I would be happy as a media planner? Before AE I assisted in media buying. My passion is client relations hence the AE path
I’m currently on the bench and had a senior colleague reach out to me about assisting with a work item. I volunteered to help (but I can’t charge my time). There was (to my knowledge) an entire team of individuals working on the project up until last week so it seemed to me that my help wasn’t really needed. The project is spinning down and they’ve lessened the team members, but I’m still helping out with tasks. I don’t mind helping at all, but it seems weird. Am I thinking into this too much?
When speaking about RSU range in the start of an interview process, does a % or $ suggest that amount is awarded annually or one time? (Ex. the target RSUs for the role is 30% of base)
Hi all - I am looking to move into the world of brand strategy consulting (KPMG has customer consulting division but brand and marketing aren't that strong. Also KPMG UK is the only one of big 4 that has not bought an agency!!). Wanted to hear some advice on the options: go to a boutique (like Lippincott, Prophet) or brand agency? The salary cut for agency is huge though. Are there other options?
Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.
Anyone exit consulting to industry for a pay cut? How do you feel about your decision? Thinking about joining a tech company for less $

Is our current Marriott status extended through 2022 or are they basing 2022 status on 2021 stays?
McKinsey & Company when applying for a BA role, is it best to indicate interest in the areas for which it asks (M&A, Risk, etc.)? It gives the option to select interested, somewhat interested, or not interested. Are these functional alignments for after the 2 years as BA? Thank you in advance!
Everyone from the MDs and Partners to the lowly Associate (me) on my team is emotionally checked out and doing the bare minimum this week. Anyone else struggling with the pre-holiday productivity slump?

It's great when your project manager messages you at 5:30 telling you "shit hit the fan in QA" when the project was due at 5! #not #willbealongnight
Second week in a row Uber @ ATL arrives with a “friend” of the driver sitting in the back seat. No explanation given. Weird AF! Anyone else seen this?
Happy to have just received my promotion to senior manager after a very challenging year, backed by an even more challenging year prior. I've got my own beliefs what a senior manager does, or should do. I'm keen to hear transition challenges others have gone through when becoming a senior manager.
Anybody trying to be my Spanish speaking partner? Looking for anyone. If multiple people want to we can do a group thing where we’re all on zoom just speaking in Spanish too. I’m a beginner...
