MBB product management is an excellent place to be right now. There is a lot of growth and security. Can be a bit challenging to find WLB but worth it in my opinion.

I’d love to hear from any colleagues who currently work in Big4/MBB/Capgemini et similia in Italy.

I have been working in PwC UK for two years and I am progressing very fast in my career (PMO) though every time I apply for jobs in Italy at the above companies, I just get rejected straight away.

I understand there’s a lot of elements to consider, but for context:
1. Yes I do have experience in the roles i’m applying for
2. my CV works perfectly fine in the UK

Thoughts? Thank you!


I’m applying to B schools and MBB / other jobs all together this year and wondering if mentioning that I’m LGBT and involved in my company’s Out network makes sense. Is that something that will looked upon favourably? Chance of it backfiring?

I’m looking to transition into a career in consulting with a company(mbb). Will it make a difference if I end up in a T2 city vs let’s say Nyc or DC? Reason for career change is for more exit opportunities and better career progression.


There is a partner in our office that routinely discusses associate performance with other associates. For example, she will tell Associate A that Associate B isn’t performing and/or hitting hours, etc. Recently, I learned that she has been discussing “issues” she had with my work product two years ago (I no longer do any work for her). Is this something I should bring up? It bothers me that she is talking about me to others.
