Does lateraling to MBB from another firm (ex. T2 / Big 4 / Boutique) impact project opportunities and your “sense of worth” to clients compared direct hires? Or generally no impact, because you went through the same rigorous process + are generally equally as capable.

To the client it’s transparent. They honestly don’t care what your background is as long as they’re confident you can do the job (which may include specific industry/ experience.)

That’s fair, I would’ve thought with LinkedIn etc they might care, but glad to hear they don’t

Zero impact. Clients would actually prefer a grizzled older consultant with 10 years in operational roles than a fresh Harvard MBA.

No impact at M. We don’t spend much time babbling on about our credentials or where we came from ever. Some say experienced hires have a tougher time learning “the way”. However, nothing to do with sense of worth or project opportunities

It’s very difficult. But if you pass the interview then we believe you have the potential to persevere and ultimately be successful
