6 YoE in digital marketing, + 2 in business + Master's (not MBA). Not super technical, but I'm a functional subject matter expert (easily top 5% in North America, probably higher) in one DM field. I want to work at MBB and now seems like a really good time to give a try. What level should I aim for? Associate? How much time should I spend practicing cases before applying? Any specific areas to make sure I upskill to check the right box? Any tips on how to make it work?
Here is my story... Hoping someone has been through the similar situation and can shed some light on. I am originally from Turkey and have lived in the US for 5 years. Had a great job and life in NYC however I was so sad and lonely being away from my family so I decided to quit my job and everything.In expense of moving back home. So now I'm in Turkey i don't have a job and it's been months I'm sitting home and spending my savings. I have offers from right and left but I don't want to work again...

How do you reimburse a mouse?
Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
I’m a new MBB partner. I was heads down focused on this goal for the last few years. Now that I’m here, I’d appreciate any advice for how I should think about my early partner years. How do I figure out what my next goal should be? How should I work / prioritize differently? I would especially love to hear stories of how other partners approached their first few years. Thanks in advance!

MBB 🐠 - For those who are actively seeking, why are you doing so? Is the MBB hype really worth it? Several from my UG have stuck around at BCG so I am curious to see what makes people stay vs leave.
My boss treats me like his secretary. I’m the only woman on the team, and he makes me handle HIS expense report twice a month, all the new hire onboarding, and just about anything he thinks his male employees are too busy to do. I’m a seasoned IT professional with two decades of experience and can code in 15 different languages. This frustrates me to no end but the exposure I’m getting to new tech skills is amazing so I can’t just walk away! Suggestions on how I can get him to respect me?!

How do Big 4 Experienced Hire interviews differ from fresh graduate interviews? Hoping to transition from a boutique firm I joined after college to the Big 4. Interviewed with MBB during school, however, not sure what to expect as an Experienced Hire. YOE 4, Midwest LCOL. Reason: great pay and WLB, but, not challenged and little upwards trajectory.
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Anyone have experience moving from agency to I’m-house or brand side? I was just let go from Edelman & it was my 2nd lay-off in 2 years and my 3rd agency. I’m worried if I look at another agency (if they’re even hiring) that I’ll get laid off again. I was an SAE. Any advice is welcome!

EY leadership has no boundaries. My husband is working in a project where they are in critical phase of testing and delivery of the system. His leadership calls him at 6am in the morning for status updates when they know for sure that he was up till 2/3 am working. I am asking him to put foot down but it seems he is the only one with the required knowledge. Venting ends. Thanks for hearing me out.
