Hi all, i am a Big 4 senior consultant with 6 years of experience in FS consulting (S&O consulting rather than reg/risk) Ive just been told i wont be making manager this year. Weighing up the possibility of doing an MBA from LBS to switch to MBB. Will be entering LBS in aug 21 intake, with expected completion in Dec22. Will be 30 yo when i graduate. Wanted to gauge peoples thoughts.
Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?
Any obvious downside in going to PE ops from consulting?
Currently at ~240 TC in MBB have offer for ~315 TC + small amount of carry; sounds like similar amount of travel except I can wfh (and move from a HCOL city). Probably lose my protected weekends and WLB, but is there anything else I’m not considering?
So Altman clearly beats out MBB in some sectors and is trying to position themselves as an MBB or perhaps tier 2 equivalent, but they’re just not matching the salaries. Why were Analyst salaries only raised to $95K when my friends at big firms (not just tier 2 but also MBB) will be making $100-120k as second years?
Calling All Black MBB 🐠: how has your experience been at your respective firm thus far? Do you feel you belong? Enjoy your colleagues, etc?

Step backwards? What is a ‘typical’ career progression from CSM?
Soooo... what is dating like as a consultant? Starting full-time soon at MBB (post-MBA), single. Based in Atlanta. Terrified it’ll be awful, hoping anyone has advice/good experiences 😬
Exit opportunities question for those with an MBA:
Do you think the quality of exit opportunities you have got is driven by your school brand or by the MBB brand?
Biggest pitfalls in lateraling to MBB at Consultant-level instead of taking B4 manager promo (other than being consultant-level for 2 more years)?
Do you guys get the sense we're more entrepreneurial than MBB? given smaller scale (at least in my office) there's a lot of unstructured staffing and project mgmt that both drives me nuts but...
MBB folks - how in the hell do you manage prepping for the gmat with your hours? What did your routine look like? What was your LOE and corresponding score?
Will mbb consider someone with 2 years of startup experience from a target undergrad? Or would they prefer consulting (ex OW / Deloitte / Strategy& / Accenture etc.), see most of the laterals from the above firms.
How many years back do background checks go, especially at the MBB? Is it the usual 5 years, or more than that?
Is it possible to lateral into MBB? What pay can one expect at those levels ? Would be looking to lateral in as Principal/AP level in their tech/ implementation offerings. Currently a SM.

I am a reporting consultant with FINS, advanced reporting, BIRT, and composite certs. I’ve been think about how to become a more desirable applicant, and I’m wondering what other functional areas you think would be beneficial to gain experience in to present as a compelling applicant? I feel a need to change things up so I’m trying to take advantage of my time at a Workday partner to get exposed to as much as possible.
Not sure if this has been shared on here, but looks like Bonvoy is updating point redemptions to align with cash value of rooms vs seasonal peaks / hotel categories. So for example a Category 8 hotel in peak season is 100k points/night, regardless of nightly rate (let’s say it’s $2,000/night). I’m speculating you’ll see that jump to something like a 1:100 exchange so that the same hotel room in 2022 will be 200k points / night.
