What types of projects do you work on? I work on post merger integration (M&A) but am looking for something that is more strategic / involves critical thinking / analysis. I want to get a feel if MBB has work that would be more interesting and challenging for me
Is the MBB Sponsored MBA worth it? Hi I’m going to be working full-time at an MBB soon and have been thinking about pursuing an MBA in ~3 years. If I can continue receiving promotions, is the opportunity cost worth it? Is it better to leave MBB after those 2-3 into an industry role? Also, is it too ambitious to say I want to earn $1MM/YR? Would exiting to industry be a faster way to do it than consulting? Thanks McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
Stories of people who were counselled to leave MBB and went on to be a bigger success? Need some motivation 😩…
hey guys, is it against MBB policy for current consultants to offer paid coaching? Is it fireable offense? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Are there strict GPA cut offs for MBB? I’ve heard 3.8 being thrown around. Could someone verify that?
Do you actually enjoy your job at MBB? Or are you just there for the money/prestige/exit opps? Been hearing horror stories about the WLB and didn’t know why else people would be sticking it out there if not for those 3 things.
Hi all! How many cases did it take you or are planning to do to be ready for an MBB interview? Some background to understand where each one is coming from would be also helpful. Thanks!!
Of the 3 MBB firms, how would you rank them 1-3 (1 being the worst, 3 being best) on the relentless nature of up or out culture? Like which place is the most cut throat work environment? Anyone much worse or much better than the pack?
First year MBA candidate here at a M7: highly recommend, unless you are career switching, to reconsider doing an MBA. The caliber of people here is disappointing, particularly compared to MBB talent
Have an offer for a SM strategy role in industry. Offer is coming in at 280- 300 TC. Total experience 10+ years, 7 YOE at MBB, T5 MBA, MCOL city. Am I being low balled? Should I continue to search for something better?
Does it make sense to join MBB from Big4 to enhance my org design and change management expertise? I want to specialize on that and become a world class expert
Thinking about jumping from Deloitte to MBB. Strictly motivated by $$$. Would it be worth it?
A&M fishes how realistic is it to make 2X of your base at your firm? It’s too hard to believe that a manager can make $300-350k in a regular year and directors are Lilly 400-500k. These salaries are better than IB. Why don’t people from MBB move to A&M if pay is that great. Very curious to get an inside scoop.
Best recognized (brand, prestige, etc) 1 year MBA program? MBB and tier 2 consulting opportunities?
What provides a strong work experience narrative within consulting? Is it just MBB with on time/fast promo? What about outside of consulting?

How do you obtain info on how much clients pay people in similar role? I'm negotiating my salary later this month and want data. (Recruiters? Ask clients you are friends with?)
Deloitte PPMDs, I can't figure out why D would not just reduce the number of temporary visa workers under H1B program vs. firing 5% of its workforce that are probably mostly US citizens. As seen here, D got approved for 57,259 temporary visas. Please explain. https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/deloitte-top-participant-in-h-1b-foreign-worker-program-by-far

Who on this bowl feels an obligation to support their parents if they retire early and run out of money? This is causing some strife with my SO. My parents have planned very well and would never dream of putting me in a position to financially support them. My SOs parents retired early, and we are worried they won’t have enough of end of life care is necessary (which is almost inevitable). continued…
