Yes MBB helps tremendously. When ran an industry strategy group, 80+% of candidates were MBB. And vast majority of hires too

I feel like consulting experience can give you a bit of an advantage over other candidates for the same position who lack that experience.

Depends on the opportunity. All high profile strategy/ops roles I have seen at least in tech require strategy consulting / Corp strategy experience.

Strategy&1, could you please elaborate on some titles and firms which require consulting experience. Especially other than corporate strategy roles

OP I specified above - I’m talking about Corp strategy roles - those are the ones I’ve looked at - for example FAANG, Uber, Heinz

MBB helps for PE recruiting

Not from consulting in general but from MBB explicitly
