I’m bad at interviewing bc I can’t look at charts and come up with insights on the spot (it takes me a few minutes to process). But that doesn’t mean I’m bad at critical thinking. I feel like the interview process for MBB is flawed
How long after an interview can you touch base?
Uber recruiter reached out to me about a Strategy Ops Manager role. They asked me my compensation requirement and stated the base is 90k, which is less than what I’m currently making at a lower level. Are they lowballing me? Should I continue with the interviewing anyways and try to negotiate in later stages?
I know there’s a lot of buzz for Product Management from B4-type consulting work. Is MBB to PM also a common route? Does it make sense to go after MBB if PM is the goal?
For those Tier 2 folks that left for MBB, what has been the difference so far? Will you advise others to do it, especially if doing great at T2? If your goal isn't "partner", does this change the DMP?
Hello my consulting friends. I’ve a final round at EY parthenon SSG group this week. They told me it will be a fit, technical and presentation interview. Could any of you help add a little color to what the interviews would look like. I’m not a very technical person so that “technical” round is giving me a little anxiety. Any help would be appreciated. EY-Parthenon
Folks who left MBB at the 1 year mark - what did you dislike and has the new job offered what you wanted?
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
During interview, can you ask if the company has plan to go IPO or is that bad question to ask?
Just joined T2 firm out of undergrad this past summer. When is the best time to apply if I want to make the jump to MBB? Looking to join asap
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.
Anyone besides me leave the Big 4 or MBB and get pestered by GLG to do 1099 project work? They are relentless.
How does Partnership work? Do you really need to buy into it, if so how much is the buy in and what are the perks of getting admitted to the partnership? Asking for both, Big4 and/or MBB.
Dear MBB fishes, requesting your immediate guidance on data engineering practice. I currently have to pick one between FAANG vs MBB. Same base but 25K RSU difference. Please help me with your insights! Moving from industry in Midwest region.
Has anyone exited to a FAANG equivalent (uber, airbnb, Tencent) from Big4, then further exited into MBB? Interested in seeing if it’s a possibility

Anyone know what the average starting salary at PwC is for a senior associate? And if the yearly merit increases are pretty good? I received a job offer last week and looking to sign by end of this week. Looking at thoughts on the company and for me career. I will be on the cyber security IFS team.
I’m here being humble, no ego with my ears open. I didn’t have the straight path to success like some people did but I landed an Analyst position at Deloitte. I had some entrepreneurial experiences before Deloitte but nothing successful. I’m here to ask for mentorship or advice from people that have 10M plus net worth. I have a 90k salary and basically 0 net worth. What advice would you give myself to at least make it to 5 M in 5 to 10 years if possible? Thank you 🙏🏽.
So, what if your kid is in a 6 person Montessori class with no interaction outside of their “pod”, serious disinfection and prevention practices and all the other parents are super socially conscious and aware. 2 teachers per classroom and no infections during summer school on campus. Yay or nay?
Have you ever took pto but was asked to work through it? I’m assuming this comes with the job but just curious what everyone’s experience at their firms have been like
M&A partner at my new firm made a “timeline” for several of our deals that contemplated a simultaneous sign and close WITH merger filings.... 😱 Did I make a mistake? In my experience, not even a second year junior associate would do this.
Upcoming interviews with salesforce, can anyone tell me more about the "present a recent project" in-person interview? What to prepare, what to expect, flow, etc.? Role is M/SM-level design lead.
How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.

Has anyone else ever thought of moving overseas? Just came back from vacation, so I'm not sure if it's me dreading work or if I really like the country.
Is expert consultant interview at BCG different from generalist? I have about 3 years of experience and looking for a consultant role.
Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa? I'm supposed to start in mid-Jan and trying to gauge the timeline so I can put in notice with my current company and plan other stuff. Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!
So, a month ago I was offered a data engineer position at a fintech firm. I was going to accept it. The interview process had taken over a month. Then, at the last minute, an old coworker/friend - who is a manager at FAANG now - randomly offered me a data engineer __contractor__ position at a FAANG. The rate was really good - more than the fintech company was offering as annual salary. Rate was 160/HR and fintech was 275K TC. The benefits are ok - it’s a W2 contractor. But I’m thinking of...
