They all do. My friend eventually got a position as an software engineer in with Microsoft in Redmond and all the places required it. He had interviews or networking events with all faang and confirmed they are required

@Amazon 1 Okay that is good to know. For KPMG it seemed they asked for more information or they just asked if I worked there and got more info.

Does it make sense to jump from Strategy& to either LEK or ZS, if the ultimate goal is to end up in industry (Big Pharma)?

Do folks hiring in industry even know the differences between these firms to justify hopping from one to the other for an industry exit?
