White male, 2 years MBB, 770 gmat, 3.8 in math/Econ from non-ivy top 10. Do I have a shot at H/S? Would it be easier or harder at one in particular?
Am I fucked? Joining mbb in a month from a top tech company (swe) making good money - took a pay cut. Never worked over 35hr/wk. How much more work is it actually? Thanks!
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
How is the situation for MBB firms currenty in Dubai? Is the business picking up? I am thinking of moving to the region from Europe and got offers from BCG, Bain and Kearney. Would be nice to get some insights on the culture and business outlook esp. since COVID. Are there significant differences in terms of the travel policies among these firms. In Europe I know that BCG is quite relaxed, when it comes to their travel policies.
I’m applying to all 3 MBB firms but I’m noticing that my “why x firm” answers are very similar for each firm. What are some of the key differences between McKinsey, BCG, and Bain that one can bring up in response to this question?
Looking into staying in London after my diplomatic assignment is up, ideally with MBB or a boutique firm at the AP level, preferably TC above £ 220k. Is this a reasonable expectation for someone with 17 yoe and multiple countries/roles? I know comps are lower in the UK then in the US, but surely partners at these firms are still bringing in £500k plus right? Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
How "prestigious" are NYC offices? Is an NYC Office at a Tier 2 > than a BFE office at MBB?
Do not mean this as a satire. Genuinely curious. How does the prestige in industry works for management consulting? I am thinking 1. MBB 2. Deloitte and Strategy& 3. Big 3/OW/BAH/ZS Correct?
Is it worth paying for case interview practice services? How common is this among people that make it in to MBB?
💥If I’m a T2/MBB/Big4 recruiter and find out a candidate accepted with us, reneged before the start date, and is joining a competitor consulting firm instead, what stops me from messaging that other recruiting team & letting them know this is a “bad Apple”? Experienced hire recruiting, where universities regulations aren’t in play?
Leaving MBB was the best decision I ever made. I know many view it as a professional pinnacle, but it's not the end-all, be-all it's hyped up to be. If you haven't been able to make it, try again if you'd like, but don't let MBB define your career. It's not worth it. Plenty of other amazing firms out there.
AWS raises just came out and I got a 55% raise 🥵 thanks uncle Andy. Leave consulting, come to tech
Do you actually enjoy your job at MBB? Or are you just there for the money/prestige/exit opps? Been hearing horror stories about the WLB and didn’t know why else people would be sticking it out there if not for those 3 things.
About to become a manager at MBB, have an MBA at HSW. Honestly, I’m just not that passionate about work, but I want a well paying job. What is the most straightforward path to 400k in total comp (I’m in Texas), while working 40-50 hours a week?
Hi all! How many cases did it take you or are planning to do to be ready for an MBB interview? Some background to understand where each one is coming from would be also helpful. Thanks!!
Of the 3 MBB firms, how would you rank them 1-3 (1 being the worst, 3 being best) on the relentless nature of up or out culture? Like which place is the most cut throat work environment? Anyone much worse or much better than the pack?
Just had an interview with a jeopardy multi day winner, multiple degrees and majors from top schools, ex-mbb, and held a major position in a major US city governance, while now being a director at a F50 company. All before the age of 35. Makes me just so feel so dumb and insignificant despite knowing that's probably not healthy haha. Anyone else have a similar experience? What was that peron's background?
First year MBA candidate here at a M7: highly recommend, unless you are career switching, to reconsider doing an MBA. The caliber of people here is disappointing, particularly compared to MBB talent
I hear a lot about how MBB really starts to pull away from T2 at the Manager level. Anyone have numbers for total compensation for PL/EM/CTL at MBB?

Got United to change its website due to my complaints and explanations that they weren't following the posted first class meal service policies. Proud and laughing at myself at the same time 👍🏽😂
More Serious. How many have friends struggling to find a job? I still have a few from college out for ~2 years. I keep hearing the economy is improving, unemp is down. I consider myself fortunate.
Is it frowned upon to use a stack of post-its to make a countdown of how many days left until you're off a miserable project?
When you are in a hotel elevator with a group of people making fun of those stuck on low floors... Yup must be other consultants 😂
Inbox at 9am = 20 unread. In meeting with client all day. Inbox at 4pm = 120. That's 14 emails/hr, 4/min, 1/15sec. Am I going crazy?
Shout out to that 1 client who gets how shitty being a consultant can be & defends you/your tasks during a project meeting verbal-gang-rape. The real MVP.
New in consulting and on the beach after my first 6 month long project. Makes me wonder if I bombed it? Anyone ever had those thoughts?
If you got accepted to more that 1 top school on R1, can you please take an offer and reject the other ones? Make spacer for the rest
When someone's snapping it's their first time in 1st class and then the attendant spills water on them..
Just got a gift from a co worker. Guess I'll make that my holiday bonus by a degree of separation. Thanks Accenture.
