Stop wasting your time on MBB for coding. You will be treated like a second class citizen by business consultants. At FAANG, you will have more opportunities to up skill too.

If you have outstanding coding skills you can make it anywhere, the market is hot, it’s all depending on your coding skills and also personality and communication skills in the case of MB, Bain doesn’t do technology, they were left behind long time ago.

If you have solid technical skills FAANG will be easier, if you have solid communication skills MB will be easier, let’s put it that way.

For me, it’s FAANG but it can vary from person to person. I have zero idea what MBB does in tech

Since there are apparently no jobs in London, has anyone had any luck being hired for a remote job where the understanding is that you will never be in their office? For example, a job outside London/the UK with no intention of moving? I’ve heard this touted as the future of hiring but have never actually heard of it happening in real life.

I want to quit but I'm not sure what kind of role I want to look into. Would appreciate any advice! The only thing I know is that I don't want to work overtime anymore. I'm a new senior and my main client gave me some good hedge fund auditing experience. I don't like controls or reading into guidances. I'm also not very good with dealing with politics in the office or too much socializing. I liked hedge funds but afraid it'll be very busy as well and lots of politics. Thx in advance for replies!

Curious if any MBB folks can shed light on current hiring environment. Undergrad campus hire at Deloitte S&O recently laid off in the COVID cost cutting wave after 2 years. Disappointed, but grateful for some freedom to explore here! Primarily looking at industry/corp strat jobs since consulting in general has been hit so hard, but considering applying to Big 3. Have heard from a few MBB friends that new hires with offers aren’t starting till end of year. Any chance of a lateral move right now?
