Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
Any inputs and personal experience comparing the data science practices of Deloitte, Accenture, KPMG and MBB(quantum black, Gamma in particular)?
Are there any examples of former Black consultants making it to C-Suite at a company? In business school, they say MBB is the C-suite factory but has this been true for Black people in the C-suite?
Is 1 month enough prep for MBB round 1? How should I focus my type on behavioural vs. Case. Should I be networking with current consultants too or it’s more just upto my performance
Which of B4 + MBB pays SWE/DS the most? I know they can't compare to FAANG, but just among these guys, who pays the most? Who has the best talent/tech implementations?
I can see so many ex MBB consultants in Meesho currently. Any idea why this is and if Meesho is a good exit from consulting? I have an interview scheduled but not really sure if I should go for it or not.
Can anyone speak the the human capital practices at their firm? I'm currently in HC consulting and want to continue working in the field, but not sure what opportunities there are in MBB.
Can you survive with no skills? Am exiting MBB for VC soon and recently realized I don’t have any differentiated skills, just general problem solving. Will I be able to just coast along forever?
With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).
STARTUP FOUNDERS and FAANG: would you rather hire MBB with 3-4 years of exp or Tier 2 with 5-6 years? If you could isolate those variables and everything else held constant.
Darden vs Yale SOM full time program? No dollars at both. - Location Agnostic - MBB/ Product Management at FAANG - loved the vibe and culture at both schools
Help me brainstorm: my DH is late 40s and wants to pívot and get into a consulting & real estate practice. Lots of experience on the real estate side. Which firms or groups should he look at? He’s spoken to MBB and essentially they do 1-2 real estate finance type engagements a year.
Now that MBAs are all going online, does it still make sense to get one as an international student? It seems internationals have the very short end of the stick and no employer wants to risk hiring one for MBB/IB/PE. Thoughts?
What type of life science work do MBB/Big4/T2 specialize in? Is the day-to-day work different? What about hours?
Looking for referrals in consulting roles at MBB or T2 strategy firms. Experience into strategy, change, transformation, analytics & operations excellence. YOE : 12

Have any of you had trouble getting interviews at startups due to them wanting more startup experience? I've worked on many greenfield projects for clients and more mature projects, so I'm not sure why I wouldn't be a good candidate. The funny thing is when you look at the bios for some of these founders and see just how inexperienced many of them are. One's bio was basically the list of clubs he belonged to in college.
Seeking portfolio advice. 23 years old- 95k comp, 20k currently in market through the most basic Schwab index funds and Vanguard ETF’s, already max out 401k & IRA.

What have your experiences been like switching from agency to client side? Do you like it? How long have you been in both sides? How did you get in? Through a recruiter or was there a specific brand you wanted to work at and you reached out to them? What made you want to switch? Or switch back? Any thoughts!

Curious if anyone here has successfully negotiated a remote work arrangement after getting an in-house offer? My spouse is located in a different city for school for the next few years, and I would like the flexibility to work remotely from that city for two weeks per month after a ramp up period of say 2-3 months.

My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely. Her fellow immigrant friends from different countries also say this. She says culture here is friendly but distant and ppl are too wrapped up in their home life and less so in their social life. She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree

It looks like the initial WFH productivity was actually driven by fear of losing one’s job, not necessarily because WFH is better. https://www.wsj.com/articles/companies-start-to-think-remote-work-isnt-so-great-after-all-11595603397
