People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
Where do more boutique firms (like Oliver Wyman, Roland Berger, Huron, zs, slalom) rank in comparison to big 4 or Accenture or ibm? I know mbb is top tier but I feel like everyone else is debatable
What’re mbb staffing models like? I heard bain was moving to more regional. This true across the board? Mck and bcg global/national/regional?
What do you think my chances are of Wharton HCM program 3.4 GPA Non-HSP Ivy, 730 GMAT, 2.5 years boutique life science consulting, pro-Bono consulting and firm UG recruitment ECs, white female, also looking at Columbia, Sloan, Yale, Tuck, and NYU, looking to transition to either healthcare IB, VC, or MBB
MD friend looking to make switch to consulting. Is MBB best option? Also any referrals? Chi based
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
What are some small firms with entrepreneurial gusto giving MBB legit competition? And I don’t mean old school traditional shops charging $1,300 per hour per resource.
Best exit opps out of MBA programs? Why is everyone so obsessed with MBB or PE? What are some other high paying opps with better WLB that are fun as well?
Coming from tech, $500k TC. What level at MBB pays this much? Feeling the itch to get back on the road again.
For those coming up to the 2 year associate mark at MBB, interested to know what opportunities (and compensation) have come their way to tempt them away from consulting?
MBB Folks, how can I get into MBB with 9YOE doing finance transformation and have a PMP cert, but no MBA. Did get a masters from Ivy League. What are some roles I can apply for? Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company Bain & Company
Is Seattle a good city for management consulting opportunities? For companies like MBB, LEK, Kearney and Accenture.
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
What is ZS ‘s reputation as a consulting company compared to Big 4 and MBB in the US? Any insights would be helpful.
Hi, I have more than 5+ years of experience in Performance Testing and engineering. I do not want to continue in tech. Want to switch to management. So planning to do a PMP course. Really confused about the consequences after the course, whether I'll be able to successfully get a management role or not. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions for me? Any guidance is appreciated.

I constantly see caution from those practicing advising newbies to cut and run/quit this profession. Do you feel you were ill prepared for what being a lawyer actually entails or is it more burnout? What led you to law and what has pushed you to advise those considering law or about to start practicing to consider alternatives?

Anyone heard of Arya Consulting Partner? How competitive are they in securing project work and what do they specialize in? How’s pay / exit opps?
Would it be a good move to a mid size tech company for 20% rise in base comp and stock options when the role is similar to what you have been doing. For added context recently got promoted so wouldn’t probably see as much base bump as I saw this year in the next cycle.
Do any of you all have any experience with short-term renting? I'm looking at moving to the city for just a few months before moving for the next job. Over looked into Airbnb, but was wondering if there were any other options?

Where do y’all but your blazers? Looking to refresh some old ones that are very traditional/no frills, good quality, super easy to mix and match with dresses, skirts etc. I used to buy them at Banana Republic but they were out of stock and seemed to have way fewer options than pre-pandemic ☹️
