Can you recruit into non strategy groups of MBB out of MBA with a higher chance of getting the job? I.e McKinsey implementation or similar?
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
Looking at you MBB & FAANG
How soon do transitions happen (involuntarily) at MBBs? I recently joined and am always worried that I’ll be let go. What are the conversations/processes like? [Asking for MBB because I’m also curious about the differences if any between the firms]
Currently a software engineer at FAANG (four years out of college) interested in getting involved in tech private equity. To reset my career, what is the most efficient route to get there? MBB -> PE?
I’m social media drained. I can’t keep up with all you 25 year olds who have $500k in savings, perfect bodies and skin, no student debt, manager-level jobs in tech and MBB, tons of friends and partners/spouses who love them. I’m out for a while ✌️
Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
Does MBB have a GPS practice? If so, where do they recruit from for experienced hires? Big4, Booz, government itself?
Objectively attractive female here. MBA educated. Former model. Accepting bf applications from MBB. Serious applicants only 😘
How to MBB pitch unsolicited proposals? How do MBB land new clients? Aside from the usual account management approaches Eg onsell/upsell/crosssell
Would you say H/S grad are held to higher expectations than anyone else given the same role? For example, if someone from H/S landed MBB/T2 and then someone from a T15 landed the same role. Would the H/S person be held to higher standards and be expected to perform more?
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
Career trajectory for MBB vs PE megafunds? Is it harder to make partner at PE firms compared to at consulting firms?
Has anyone ever seen a double promotion in MBB? I imagine it would be applicable for experienced hire that were under-hired.
Has anybody hopped over from an MBB/T2/B4 type of firm to a boutique? Thoughts /perspectives? Would appreciate either a push off the ledge or a pull away from it. Generally fed up with the long hours, lack of project variety, and the firm’s small practice and lack of focus in my interest area and wondering if things would improve at a boutique that specializes in what I want to do.
Anybody here with cloud experience looking for a referral to MBB? Same pay as strategy team.
Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
Hi Folks, my F-1 visa expired earlier this year and I’m currently on STEM OPT. Would love to go back home (India) for two weeks during December/Jan but haven’t had any luck yet with getting appointments to stamp my visa. Anyone else on the same boat?
Just a shout-out to all the LGBTQ+ consultants who are not in heteronormative relationships. Every time I read threads here wherein folks assume that someone posting about a wife or girlfriend is a man, or someone with a husband is a woman, I feel invisible. This also happens to me at work - colleagues and clients incorrectly assume the gender of my spouse. Please remember that there are men married to men, women married to women, and same-gender couples with kids. We exist!
My therapist just told me I'm depressed..do you ever feel like they tell you things you hear a lot or could have figured out on your own? Like take care of yourself, it's ok to feel such and such, etc. I'm still newer to therapy so wondering if that's the common experience? Do you ever have moments where you're like wow that actually is eye opening and I wouldn't have gotten that from reading self help books and websites etc?
Pregnant, just got a new job offer. I need to drop the pregnancy bomb now (I’m 24 weeks along). Really looking for any advice on how to say this in negotiations. I really want to see if I can negotiate our maternity leave. Also want to break the news in a way where they don’t feel deceived.
Thoughts on doing tax for a private equity firm vs big 4? Want to leave pwc but not sure if PE would be a good move, any advice is appreciated
"The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people's expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn't care if you are a white person who likes black people;...
I'm conflicted. Should I give up the Deloitte prestige for 85% raise? Similar job, but the company doesn't have the greatest reviews from the people I spoke with. What would you do?
Deloitte folks. Is travel requirement on specialist track same as the regular track ? Do SpMs travel as much as Managers for projects ?
This is quite amusing 😀 Meghan needs to sponsor Harry’s Canada PR. He may not make the points cut off by himself. https://m.huffingtonpost.ca/amp/entry/harry-meghan-canada-citizenship_ca_5e1dfce5c5b6640ec3dc50d5/
OW, ZS or big 4? Zs : 135 base + 10% bonus Ow: $100 base Big 4: 140 base Currently at big 4 - haven’t negotiated OW but unsure if they’re gonna match my other offers. If money was the same I would easily go OW?
Best exit opp you've seen a partner take ?
Is it possible to claim phone expense if you are in a group plan? I have paid my share of the bill through Amex but the cumulative bill is not in my name as I am not the account owner. Would this work?
What does your retirement budget look like? Assuming no debt. What is your expected basic minimum expenditures (core life)? And what are you budgeting for fun and luxury? My basic is around 10k a month for taxes and food and transport and utilities. Luxury and fun is another ten. Big expense in basic is property tax. Big expenditure in fun is travel. I think my basic budget is too high and I could bring it down and be very happy in a smaller home and less restaurants.
Finally managed to receive an offer from my dream firm today. Now I’m intimidated and doubt I’ll be able to perform up to the expected level. I don’t feel like they gained a good picture of who I am / challenged me enough during the interview process. How to find out if I’m ready for the new job?
Average salary for an S2 in FDD in a HCOL area?
What is the best way to reach out to someone who works for the same firm, but a different office, to gain insight into the work they do and the culture? What do I email them without being awkward?
I hope most of us can agree on the below as fellow Americans: -Any group wanting to cause harm to people or a specific group of people have no place in our country. -Clearly our country is hurting and needs productive dialogue at the community, state, and national level from both sides. -One side is never right. MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN are also rarely right. -We’re in dire need of empathy and care for one another regardless of political views, race, geographic location, gender, etc.
