Looking for advice on $50K total at Booth vs no money at Sloan. Goals are tech PM/MBB. Can current/recent students shed light on the culture at each school? Is there a significant prestige difference? If it wasn’t for the money, I would’ve chosen Sloan but finding it tough to make a decision considering the financial angle.
Are MBBs also experiencing H1B issues, like Big4s such as RFEs, Denials etc.? Don’t generally see posts from MBB 🐟 here, hence curious.
I recently got laid off from my consulting firm, however, after deep contemplation, I still feel I loved my job and the opportunities it entailed - however the company/role was a bad fit and I didn’t find the right mentors. Any inspiring stories for people in similar positions who continued in consulting successfully? Would it be too dreamy to shoot for MBB? Or is this a sure sign to switch careers?
Anyone from Google UK/Ireland? Do you think the firm is open to sponsoring candidates from outside the region? Applied for roles online which are a good fit but always get an automated No! MBB M looking at Product Marketing/Strategy and Ops kind of roles
Interested in moving to Singapore in 1-2 years, I’m at C at MBB right now. Interested in strategy roles in tech but location is the priority. I’m American but have lived/worked abroad for 4y. Will Singapore be impossible visa wise?
Long term which network is more useful: an MBB alumni network or a GSB/HBS alumni network? And yes I know these are not mutually exclusive- but relative to each other which is stronger?
Will working at a boutique vs Big4/MBB significantly hurt my chances of getting to a T15?
How realistic is to get into MBB without an MBA?
Anyone else recognize that interviewers couldn’t care less about what firm you work at and view all consultants as consultants. Coming from MBB it was a tough reality when i started seeing this
In MBA recruiting, how much do employers care about pre-MBA work experience? What are the chances of landing MBB or BB IB without pre-MBA consulting or banking experience? How would the chances differ at M7 vs T15?
How long after interviewing/accepting a job offer can I push the start date out to reasonably. Going to MBB if it matters. Thanks!
Exiting from ACN Strat to MBB after being promoted from A to C in a year, or wait until manager promotion? Useful note: I really enjoy the work and people at ACN.
What are some advantages of working at a boutique firm versus treading the beaten path of big4/tier2/MBB? If any.
I just want to make a LOT of money. I have to find a way to parlay this position into millions. Is it possible? Maybe transition into MBB consulting ..has that ever been done?
Is it possible to go MBB —> Hedge Fund? (activist or L/S equity specifically) / anyone have any stories or anecdotes on the transition, recruiting, or how to increase competitiveness
How is hiring in Europe (London, Berlin, etc.) looking right now? Considering ditching the visa stress and moving back (EU citizen) - would companies there value 1-2 YOE at MBB with just an undergrad degree?
Want to switch to a business function in Tech, but focus on stuff like product portfolio or R&D strategy and not sales/marketing/org - any advice as to what job titles to target? (2 MBB YOE + grad-level engineering background). Thx!

How has consulting changed you as a person?
Put kids in day-care now and they’ll put you in an old-age home later. We’re increasingly becoming averse to a family-cantered life. True?
Got an offer from BCG. Same level. Should I take it?
When I landed at the Newark airport and proceeded to Boston in 2005 I had just landed in this country with $ 325 in my pocket and was on a student visa. I racked up $ 100,000 in student loans over the next few years. Paid it all off by 2010 and today our net worth is $ 2.2 million projected to close at $ 6 million by the time I retire. Work hard. Stay humble. You can do anything in this country with capitalism and free enterprise.
Thoughts on this?
