Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
What’s the top 1-3 reasons folks leave big 4 to go to MBB (minus salary & career progression)?
How much of a difference long term is there between an in person MBA and part time, especially from a recurring standpoint? I understand short term recruiting is generally better for on campus, but realistically I don’t think I have a shot at M7, and a low shot at T15. Already making $100k (3 YOE, looking to start MBA fall 2023) and can’t really see the ROI taking 2 years off for T25. I already left Accenture and post-MBA goal isn’t MBB/IB, but more likely an LDP.
I have an engineering background, graduated last December, and accepted MBB over FAANG (product design & manufacturing engineering offers) . This bowl’s focus on exiting consulting into FAANG (cont)
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
Hi, do MBB firms Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company McKinsey & Company usually offer school allowances for employees with kids in the region especially Dubai?
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
I want to take advantage of this job market and move into consulting (preferably MBB) asap, but have zero experience with case interviews. Obviously this will vary depending on the person, but how much time do you recommend studying/prepping? And how quickly after applying can I expect an initial interview? Should I apply now? If so, will I have enough time to prep prior to an interview?
Which firms seem more open for hiring from boutique consulting groups (MBB, Deloitte, Accenture, etc)? 6 YOE in consulting (both commercial and federal) plus 4Y mil service, MS.
How to best allocate time, from first to final round of MBB process for 2-3 weeks? Just keep doing cases daily / focus on behaviourals / read white papers/ relax a bit ?
Can someone elaborate on the differences between MBB (McKinsey, BCG, Bain) in India? Have calls from all three, but heard a few things that BCG is more into implementation these days , Mck and BCG have more weekends where you work etcetera. Wanted to make an informed choice
Hi, considering moving to Australia, targeting strategy roles (ex MBB exp). Would I be at a disadvantage during the application process if I do require a visa? Do you know of any successful cases? Otherwise, what are the ways to settle down and work in Australia? Got a EU passport. Cheers!
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
If you had your pick of MBB, which would you join? Running a very informal poll - like the comment of the corresponding firm below McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
That moment when you had all your projects out the door, ready to pack for your vacation and chill, but your client comes back with "urgent" changes. #fml #almostthere
How do I job hop effectively, does hopping under 2 years constantly look bad on a resume?
Had a convo with an MD at a bank about mba associates off cycle (not graduating in may) basically said off cycle candidates for an mba associate are hard to hire as they will not go through the modeling boot camp, and will most likely not have prior transaction experience. Any tips for working on those gaps Only thing that comes to mind is a modeling certificate from training the street.
