I’m looking to transition into a career in consulting with a company(mbb). Will it make a difference if I end up in a T2 city vs let’s say Nyc or DC? Reason for career change is for more exit opportunities and better career progression.
Do any of the top consulting firms hire into the Engagement Manager level after an M7 (if they had manager experience elsewhere)? I know MBB probably doesn’t but what about other tier 2 firms after that - and asking for US or Canada
I’d love to hear from any colleagues who currently work in Big4/MBB/Capgemini et similia in Italy.
I have been working in PwC UK for two years and I am progressing very fast in my career (PMO) though every time I apply for jobs in Italy at the above companies, I just get rejected straight away.
I understand there’s a lot of elements to consider, but for context:
1. Yes I do have experience in the roles i’m applying for
2. my CV works perfectly fine in the UK
Thoughts? Thank you!
Is the MBB brand name really that worth it outside of consulting? At a T2 doing largely similar work with C-Level clients and contemplating if the move makes sense (beyond pay).

My Dad is hilarious, someone asked him what I did for a living and he just told them "he's a nerd." I mean, he's not wrong, so...
So I'm stuck on making a decision. I've been applying to jobs because I felt underpaid at the Associate Manager level (L8) at Accenture. I got an offer yesterday from a well known tech company for $27k more plus $8k sign on. Other benefits are pretty good too compared to Accenture. 2 things stopping me; 1) i love my team and feel super sad/guilty to leave them 2) the postion is a senior position, not manger so i'd have to work my way up 1 lvl again. As John Quiñones would say, what would you do?

I know my casing needs work but I’m constantly being advised not to over prepare. I can’t help but feel that I’m going to be missing out on some things if I don’t case enough. Is there actually any such thing as over preparing?
Do Bain ppl not like hiring bcg/McKinsey for roles? I’ve come across at least 5 companies where the entire team is ex Bain and no one else. But when I see bcg/mck the teams are much more evenly distributed.
If u apply for a role at an MBB that is focused on automotive, are u stuck in that for a bit?? Or do u get to move around?
What about if I worked in automotive stuffs and then got a masters in a year or two in something different? that would let me escape working on auto stuff right??? Maybe??
I saw this quote in a thread on fishbowl and it feels relevant to me an auto industry:

Recruiter reached out to me for my resume for an Associate role at McKinsey, should I also send over a cover letter? Do they matter?
Bain & Company Bain fishes, I have a final round interview at the end of the week. Are the cases similar to the ones I saw in the first round? Are there any curveballs I should be ready for in either the cases or fit interviews? Bain & Company
Mckinsey folks who are involved with recruiting: is it common to request a chat with someone from your school’s recruiting team prior to application submission? The recruiter told me that she’d be happy to pass my resume along to a member, but after sending her my resume and following up today, she said that they are all busy and she’s very protective of their time (when I brought up whether or not it would be possible to email one of them myself). I just really want to know who’s on my school’s
Diversity quota is real: both for B-School admissions/scholarships and MBB recruiting.
Readers be warned. Your skills don’t matter as much as you think.
That is all.
Bain & Company I heard that Bain & Company has set up partner compensation to include team sustainability/hours as a measurement. Can anyone confirm? Would love to hear more about how that plays out in practice!
Anyone from BCG Gamma who can give insight on how they differ from the BCG generalist path? How different is the pay, career progression, interview process, etc? How have you liked working there?
It happens but it isn't super common. Definitely tougher in this economy since we will have more than enough talent from on campus hires to fill need. I've only ever seen people come in as AC1s and they typically have 2-4 years work experience.
Yes. Source: me
what was the process like?
Yes. Not right now, but generally we do.
Yes. We had a pretty killer recruiting year and had turned off most lateral channels for 2020 before the COVID crisis.
Do you guys think it’s worth it to “step back” a year? Approaching a year at a tier 2 consulting firm. Made it to final rounds for two of the mbbs in undergrad so should hopefully still have contacts / be able to get an interview
I would. Consultants know Tier 2s well, but majority of the non-business world (even some FAANG roles) know MBB far better.
I think it’s the most common at McK, least at Bain and not likely at any in the current climate
Yes. At McK you’re better off being 2+ years out of undergrad though because then you can join as an associate and get double the pay 😉
I’m very involved in recruiting and interact with both BA and ASC candidates. The guidance, things we’re looking for, prep, etc do not change. Now obviously for the PEI we’d expect a different conversation about impact and leadership from someone who’s worked and such than from someone who’s just coming out of school, but the things we actually look for and how we measure them don’t change.
