Two MBB firms reached out to me this week about manager-level roles in generalist consulting, and a few posts mention a need for M (PL/EM/SM) roles too. Is there a sudden need for M level staff that can't be met with internal promotes? Why? Sure, fast growth, but are all the high performing future promotes leaving? Managers leaving? What else may be happening?
HBS vs. Wharton vs. CBS vs. Berkeley if recruiting for UMM PE without prior IB or MBB experience (but some M&A related experience)? No $$$ anywhere smh.
@MBB 🐠, what brought you to work there besides the $? I hear so many ppl say that’s where they want to go after MBA but never give a reason why besides getting paid well. I know that’s a fair response but i would like to hear if there are other contributing factors. Thanks.
For people just out of undergrad, is non mbb consulting worth it? Like is it still better than most non technical corporate jobs you can get out of undergrad? Or it is basically like a corporate business analyst?
Anyone here jumped from PwC to MBB or the other way around (at Director/ AP and above level)? Would love to connect and get a perspective on the differences across!
Post MBA goal is MBB/Tier 2 consulting firms in NYC or NJ. What schools (other than HSW) should I be targeting?
Starting as ASC/C at MBB soon and have zero clothes to wear in-office/client (coming from advanced degree where I wear shorts 24/7). I'm wide AF (5'9 220) from lifting and built like a rectangle.
If you had to rebuild your entire business casual wardrobe from scratch for a non-slim build, where would you go? MTM or off the rack + tailor (in house or external)? Tried some charles tyrwhitt shirts but I'm all over their size chart so they would take a ton of work to fix.
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than MBB?
MBB folks: which MBA program in your opinion brings most qualified candidates to your firm? Currently deciding between Booth, Columbia, Kellogg, and Yale. My goal is to transition to MBB post bschool.
💥If I’m a T2/MBB/Big4 recruiter and find out a candidate accepted with us, reneged before the start date, and is joining a competitor consulting firm instead, what stops me from messaging that other recruiting team & letting them know this is a “bad Apple”? Experienced hire recruiting, where universities regulations aren’t in play?
I’m second year at MBB and realizing I don’t like analytics. I much prefer creative work...what are good feasible exit ops for me?
Do MBB cover Invisalign?

Considering a move from MBB to HF investing post PhD. I find the prospect of investing in public markets interesting but am concerned that I might limit my future exit opportunities if HF investing doesn’t really work out for me. One of the reasons I liked consulting was the optionality that it offered in terms of future exits. Am I limiting myself by making this move? What exits can I expect if I fail at HF that will value my consulting and investing experience ?
what are mbb, lek doing about internships?
Interviewing for senior program manager at Amazon Prime Video. What sort of prep should one do? Is it a good exit for someone currently playing EM/PL/Manager role at MBB?
Does KPMG Strategy, Acn Strat, Deloitte S&A, etc. pay market to other strategy firms (E.g., mbb, s&)?
How is BCG’s Aetna health insurance?
What is the story with being asked to sign a PIP? Essentially a document acknowledging you have adds to improve on and filed with HR. Is it a sign to get out?
Time throw some back a week early??
SPY approaching overbought territory, may see a pull back later this week - but I would hold off on puts depending on the trade news that may come out today.
I wish... 🤪
How do you stay motivated? Especially on Mondays after a fun weekend? I always remind myself I’m so lucky to have the job I have worked so hard for, but sometimes that isn’t enough of a push. TIA!
