MBB 🐟 - can you describe the moment when reality did not meet your excitement/expectations you had before starting the job?

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say

Would appreciate advice for next career steps. Currently in Risk&Reg advisory and looking to switch to Strategy consulting (at PwC/Big 4). From what I've read, the transition seems unlikely because of little work overlap and the preference for top MBAs. It seems like the most realistic ways forward are 1) Get MBA first then request to transfer groups, or 2) Leave the firm for Strategy experience elsewhere and get back into Big 4 eventually. Has anyone made a similar move into Strategy?

I work as an implementation consultant and my work is highly industry specific, utility billing for municipalities generally less than 20k accts.

As I look for other jobs (more just curious and not actively applying) I see that I am not a fit for much out there. I have no technical skills to accompany my IT degree because it’s been so long since I touched SQL. Have I siloed myself? Cont in comments.
