Is working at a solid series D startup good pre mba experience for MBB or do you prefer blue chips (ex capital one) ?
I am a Tech Consulting Senior at PwC but my primary skill set has been in consumer and retail advanced analytics 5 yrs exp and I have a masters in the same. How should I go about moving to MBB. I am working on data management technologies and its not my thing. Not willing to go the MBA route. Any suggestions on how I can make the leap.
How is the hiring scenario of MBB at ISB? How many years of experience in a candidate are they willing to accept (assuming relevant pre mba role, for instance, say in ZS)?
Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises.
Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.
Hello ME fish. I'll be joining an MBB's Riyadh office soon, from outside ME. Just curious as to why LinkedIn shows employees at MBB in KSA being almost all being of Saudi nationality? How is diversity like in the KSA office for MBB firms? Understand this might be because the KSA offices are newer than UAE ones so can we expect this to improve in the future?
After so many FAANG rejects, I'm kinda getting addicted to the rejection emails and want to apply for some random MBB roles to get some more rejects! F this sh*t!

180k base + 40k RSU yearly FAANG offer VS. 220k base MBB offer: which one is considered better purely from a monetary perspective? FAANG has refresher but MBB has higher bonus right?
Is moving from MBB to FAANG non tech roles (strategy & ops) worth it? How is the career progression?
For a strategy-esque (non-PM) career trajectory in FAANG/tech, what’s the comp trajectory look like? Can one ever reach MBB partner-like comp? MBB’s pay trajectory is too good to leave, but maybe I’m being naive

Are public sector projects highly competitive to get onto at the different MBB firms?
Saw a story today saying that the social sector is <5% of revenue, with some consultants saying...
Starting out a full time job out of college not MBB but I am considering applying to MBB again for fall recruiting this year. I interviewed with all 3 within the past year (1st round ding) and I am eligible to apply again. I do not have the zeal to study for it nor apply again because my current job is 80k, 25 PTO and I close by 2pm. I am very much interested in having my own startup and working on it after 2pm but I know I wouldn’t have that at MBB. Should I push MBB to post MBA or try again?

Weird. Found out from some confused colleagues that a partner tried to get me kicked off a project that she wanted a role on (she was denied said role). Suspect she wanted me off because she knows I know about her secret tryst with another colleague, which my colleagues don’t know about. Any recommendations on how I navigate these waters and protect myself? I just want to do my job and honestly don’t give af what she does outside office times.
Most of the companies like SAP, KPMG, Amazon, IBM, Dellotie, ask for experience of 4-5 years for all the Devops roles. I have experience of 2 years in Devops and I have almost all the skills that these companies are asking for due to less experience my applications, are getting rejected. So should I wait for 3 more years in my current Job or should I settle for companies of less brand value than Accenture (my current employer) ? Please help me with your views and suggestions.
Have you ever had a company call you about a past employee and have you ever told them that they got fired?

Can someone explain why Vialto Partners are partnering up with third parties (Benivo, Certino) rather than developing in-house (with the 100 million investment)? Is the cost too much?
I am trying to understand Vialto's strategy behind this. I would have thought we would be developing in-house given third party risks etc, however I do not have a "GM technology" background.
