Anyone willing to connect and provide coaching on how to get into MBB or management consulting in general? I recently have an interview with one of the MBB for EM position, I don't think I would get it, but interested in learning more as I've always wanted to do management consulting. I plan to reapply in a year or so.
Do any of the MBB firms have a Transportation/Mobility practice? If not, is there another area of the firm that these might fall under? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Anyone have info on MBB/Strategy& supply chain consulting? Group size, actively hiring, common backgrounds (MBA/certifications required/helpful?), project types, & interview prep tips? Looking to enter as an experienced hire. Currently a procurement financial analyst and just passed my CSCP certification. Ex-big4. Thanks!
Exhausted from the hours I am putting in in IB. Just pulled an all-nighter through Sunday night. Seriously contemplating moving to MBB. Question: How are the Associates and Consultants at MBB doing? What's your hours like? @McKinsey, @BCG, @Bain
For anyone with experience in both, how is WLB at Facebook compared to MBB? What about compared to other FAANG?
Can MBB alumni give referrals?
I’m thinking about a lateral to T2/MBB. The memory of the grind for recruiting in undergrad is slightly deterring me. Are there any major differences between campus recruiting and lateraling? Is lateraling “easier” than campus recruiting given you’ve already been vetted by another consulting firm?
Planning on transitioning from Tech Consultancy (change management and it service management) to MBB. I’m young professional. (2 yo in consulting and 2 yo in Sales) What would be the best way to go about it?
MBB, and particularly Big 4 fish - How much of your time do you spend on internal marketing of your services, internal recruitment to your service line? None, Some, Much or Lot.
For McKinsey (or MBB generally though I applied to McK), do cover letters matter? Or more specifically, are you dinged if you don't have one? I see responses saying they aren't read. But when I applied I didn't even have a blank PDF labeled cover letter attached so idk if I'm missing some checkbox.
Asking for genuine feedback from experienced hires into MBB Europe. Assuming a strong CV - How's that been for you, worth the effort all things considered?
So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?
Europe/Asia MBB: Anyone ever hear of the Junior Associate/Consultant role still going to get an MBA? Exp hire with 3 yrs of work here that is interested even though direct to Asc is an option.
Junior folks aligned to PE practices (PEPI, PIPE, PEG), are you locked into your practice? Do you get to do other cases so that you don’t burn out on 20 PE deals in a year? currently at a T2 PE practice and want to lateral to MBB - any insights are appreciated!
boutique vs. big 4 vs. MBB? Pros and cons.
Is it bad if I lateral from MBB to D for better work life balance and wanting to do consulting for life? I imagine id be worshipped like a god among men at the firm though.. a Big D among little D's.
Anyone with experience of switching from Big4 to MBB? 1) Recruitment 2) Insights on changes
I’ve been working in cyber risk in the federal sector for a few years and I’m finding I enjoy “advise” projects much more than operate/implement (I’m guessing on the implement piece since I’ve done pursuits for it and seen the technical sections, but I haven’t done the work). If I wanted to pivot into a strategy firm and stay federal (or government in general), what firms would be ideal? I’m not basing it off prestige (MBB vs non MBB).
Have 6 strong reviews across PD, training and engagement. Senior 1 with strong non big 4 experience. Odds for rating or promotion?
EWR 🐟- flying out tomorrow night on personal travel. Looking for best place to park my car - balance convenience and cost (though it's a short trip so cost isn't critical). Ideas? Thanks!

Browsing through some tech role exit opportunities out there. Which of these three companies would you rather work for? HubSpot, Salesforce, or Charles Schwab?
Moving from consulting to engineering? Started out in CS and had internships and a short job as an engineer before I moved into consulting. I have been enjoying in a lot but am scared that I won’t be able to move back into engineering if I stay too long. Anyone have similar experience or advice? Have I already made myself a worse candidate by taking a non-engineering role or can I say that it allowed me to bolster my soft skills?
Sick and tired of being sick and tired of the client being sick and tired of my team being sick and tired that the client is sick and tired of our work
