Does it hurt your interview / career at Facebook, Snap, Twitter etc. if you don’t have an account personally? I’m interested in applying to these companies but am a very private person that prefers not to be on social media myself.
Folks - how do you prep for case interviews in half a week? Any resources you would point me towards? It’s been over 5 years since I last had interviews. Sure I am in consulting but I honestly don’t do this thing on the day to day so am very sure will be very rusty.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
How hard are apple interviews?
Had an interview with a recruiter who laughed at me when I said I was looking for a senior role. Laundry service, I’m sorry, but you should start hiring people who respect people.
I will be recruiting for MBB next fall during my MBA program. I am looking for more info on what projects are really like, culture at your firms, why you choose it, and how it stands out. Thanks!
How long can you take between recruiter interview and first round? Can I ask for two week gap if I need time to prep? Or do I lose out to other candidates in the process?
Has any of the MBB been doing much work in public sector since the onset of pandemic? Would they be willing to hire someone with exclusively public sector experience of +6 years and an MBA from Canada? Asking because during the MBA recruitment, public sector experience was not helpful as MBB didn't focus there a lot.
Hi All, It’s been a week since I last heard from pwc in regards to my interview. I gave them my availability for next week but I’m on holiday and few of the days won’t be at home. Shall I follow up with recruiter and make them aware that I’m still waiting for something to be scheduled. Really don’t want to keep waiting…
LEK🐠, how different is our casework (pack creation / iteration, model approaches, expert interview formats) compared to MBB? If it’s fairly similar, I’d turn down the MBB offer I have to pivot into tech. If MBB gives a new consulting experience, I’d accept. Generalist path. TIA🙌🏼 L.E.K.

Best places for good WLB and decent salary. Coming out of MBB and I’m aiming for $100k-$120k but really a 9-5. Big banks seem like a good place in Toronto but it sounds like it varies greatly by team. Hoping to get a more specific answer
I have an in-person interview on Wednesday. Can I wear a jean mask? Or should I wear something a little more formal?
Do any of the MBBs consult for FAANG or top tech companies? Or do all those companies exclusively use in house strategy teams? If any MBB does, a referral would be much appreciated
Hi all! Pleased to say I'll be starting at MBB in August. Anything you'd suggest doing between now and then as I have a lot of extra time and obviously can't travel. Thanks!
Starting at MIT this Fall and hoping to work at Bain next summer. Attending the summer ExperienceBain events, but what else should I start doing right now? What are the best ways to prep for case interviews?
Exhausted from the hours I am putting in in IB. Just pulled an all-nighter through Sunday night. Seriously contemplating moving to MBB. Question: How are the Associates and Consultants at MBB doing? What's your hours like? @McKinsey, @BCG, @Bain
Any Salesforce AEs here? Applying/looking, and curious if there is a “preferred” business unit to sell to? They are obviously different industry sectors, just curious WLB/happiness levels and salary differences A few options below: Insurance Marketing Cloud Data & Identity Manufacturing Retail
About to hit 1 YOE in my first job post grad and have a feeling raises/market adjustments won’t be sufficient due to Covid even though the firm seems to be meeting expectations in terms of the feedback we’ve received from management. Is it a good idea to start applying to different opportunities in case my raise/adjustment isn’t what I’m expecting at year end? Not sure how long the average job search could take...
for a 2nd round webcam interview with one finance manager do you suit up or is shirt and tie ok? Feels stupid to wear a suit in your bedroom for a webcam call…
Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.
Just lost my 2nd H1b lottery. Have 1 year left on visa and 1 lottery left. Do any firms out there sponsor for Greencard before you have an H1b? Assuming it’d be very hard for me to get someone to sponsor me for H1b with only one year OPT left given the lottery, but maybe GC would be possible since it’s higher likelihood of approval?
What firm are you at and what are the maternity leave benefits? We only get about 3 months using parental leave and short term disability paid at 100%.
Does anyone sign their emails at the end with their initials of their first and last name? I'm not sure how I feel about that, I've noticed quite a lot of people in the firm and at the client who do.
Interested in getting others perspective here. Senior consultant but received an offer in healthcare industry for more money and an upgraded title. TC for the offer is about a 25% increase, with the base being higher than my current TC. Currently working on a high profile client and have a decent chance of being promoted to manager next year but will probably go through hell this year to get it and it’s not a sure thing. Should I take the money and run?
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.

Hi all, I’m joining EY as SC2 in the FSO finance performance improvement group. I wonder what compensation should I expect? I’m currently a senior associate at PwC audit. Want to get some ideas before speaking with the recruiter. Thx!
What do you tell account team and clients when a junior team member (who was covering for someone who was on vacation) made mistakes so bad it's jeopardizing the client relationship?

Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!
Took some PTO on a Monday so I wouldn't have to deal with the fact that it's Monday and everyone wanting something at 8am.
I have an interview for social media strategist with a rising DTC startup in NYC. I’m feeling imposter syndrome, since I’ve never marketed such a big, hip company. What books can I read or courses can I take to come into the interview solid and prepared? Most of my marketing theory is based on Seth Godin books and reading psychology.

Any tips for working w/ your father in this biz? 😬 see the huge opportunity to step into something that’s already built vs struggling in your first few years but I do worry about the father-son side
Advisory Managers that left EY for another big 4…when you gave your 2 weeks notice (or 4 weeks), were you let go effective immediately or did they allow you to continue to work despite the fact you were going to a competitor?
Is it hard to switch from a non-big 4 accounting firm to a big 4 accounting firm? Also are there any jobs at big 4 that don’t require 60+ hours a week?
