I wouldn’t say that... The NYT says McKinsey is actually quite “good” at a lot of stuff. Like advising despotic regimes. Or something about kids in cages. Or something something Houston Astros’ trashcan. Don’t sell yourselves short.

I don’t know why people keep trying to directly compare FAANG to MBB. They’re pretty different paths and trajectories.

OP: sounds like a life-time employee of other people’s company

Depends on your interest and how stuck you are to titles. If you are aggressive, in MBB you can climb the ladder faster. FAANG you will earn more at junior roles and have better control of your life but you have to compromise on title growth

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB.

What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/
