Applying for NYU One Year Tech MBA for May 2021 start. I’m currently making 120k. I can probably hit 200k in 5 years but I’m also 34. Is it worth it to get my MBA and pay 140k to work at MBB or FAANG?
Anyone left MBB after 1 year instead of the typical two? How did that go over with other firms/industry companies? Did you have to explain a lot or were they still satisfied just seeing MBB?
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
Do MBB hire non-nationals to work in emerging-market offices or do they only transfer existing employees? Would be very interested in talking to a Westerner who’s done this. Am US-based now, but with lots of international experience + language skills, thinking of switching things up.
Why would anyone from the tier 2 firms (OW, ATK, S&) want to go to MBB? (Not rhetorical, I’d like to find out what the gaps are for these firms)
What’s culture and WLB like in Google Strategy and Ops? I see most are former MBB, and I’m curious if they continue to carry the expectation of long hours and availability after-hours.
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
Does MBB ever do cyber work with government agencies requiring a clearance? Wondering if that would be helpful with a lateral move or if they wouldn’t care.
Anyone make the move from SAP projects to more MBB / strategy / mgmt world? Looking for advice on what relevant skills are, job and responsibility differences, etc
Does referral (a random one e.g. from someone at MBB whom you don’t personally know), make a difference in applying for roles with MBB?
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
What’re mbb staffing models like? I heard bain was moving to more regional. This true across the board? Mck and bcg global/national/regional?
Does anyone know anyone in the Cornell one tech mba? If Faang type companies don’t work out, do you think it’d still be possible to get into ib or mbb with this degree? Also, what are some other....
Converted my summer at a low/mid BB in the ECM team, however now been offered an analyst role at a MM PE firm (~$1bn AUM). Although my team at the BB is far from prestigious I’m just looking to hear some other opinions before I accept the PE offer, one thing catching me off guard is that most of the IP come from non-MBB consulting backgrounds so I’m wondering if this is really a good exit. I’d be taking about a 10% pay cut compared to IB but progression to roles with carry is open.
For folks who get a company phone, do you keep two separate phones - one for perosnal and one for professional use? At my current company, I just file an expense for my monthly cell phone bill, so I keep my own phone and use it for both work and personal use. About to start at MBB soon and wondering if people just use the company phone for both use? Is it ok/accepted if your checked personal emails, social media, other apps etc.. on the company phone?
How does an MHA look when applying to larger consulting firms (MBB,big4, etc.) ? I don’t have an MBA but I do have 2.5YOE in healthcare consulting and an MHA degree . Can I start out past the entry associate level?
Lady SAs and Managers, PwC FS comp thread. Gents feel free to comment. I want to check if ladies are achieving parity.
My dad is generally supportive of me, but downplays my accomplishments and treats my confidence like arrogance. He barely acknowledges my wins and can be slightly (but not overly) negative. He does say he’s proud of me once in a while, but I do feel like my feelings are often invalidated. For what it’s worth, he’s an Asian dad and will always see me as his kid rather than an adult. Any advice? I try not to seek approval, but I do live with my parents (moved out then back in due to COVID)
Because of the snowball effect, should I put 100% of my investment money into an S&P 500 index fund? After I max out my 401k (not that my intern self has that🤣 lol)
Who has bounced between PwC and Accenture? What differences did you notice between the companies as far as culture, benefits, growth, work/life balance, etc?
Just got a job offer in Dallas but only did virtual interviews because of COVID. I’ve never visited the city. Recommendations on the best area to live in for a single girl late 20s? Coming from DC where we have pretty distinct neighborhoods. I’ve been googling but it’s hard to tell which areas are more lively and better for single people.
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station
Help! Last minute trip to Hawaii, want to use points. Have about 250k points thru both Chase and Amex (each).

On international travel right now. Out late with clients. Return to room at 11PM and water is pouring from ceiling. Have to change rooms. How many points?
If you were still employed and content with your current job, would you continue to interview for a job you really couldn’t see yourself taking? I feel like if I say no, I’m not up for the challenge.
I just heard something about cross chargeability for the green card process. Did anyone use it? At what stage should you use it?
Are PwC human capital salary bands aligned with advisory bands? I.e. does a manager in IFS make the same as one in management consulting?
