Depends from which firm tbh. I have a friend who got hired by ex-MBB partner and the guy runs his team into the ground. Anecdotal, but I would definitely think twice after hearing my friend's experience

In my anecdotal experience, if they're ex-consulting (especially MBB) with a team of ex-consultants, that's a hard pass. 50/50 if their team isn't ex-consultants, but in general I have a pretty strong preference for industry HMs who don't come from a MBB/T2/THE background.

It wouldn't make a difference at all to me, them being an ex-consultant alone doesn't tell me a whole lot

Is HM hiring Manager? I don't see why that matters.

Anyone working with insecure managers who are jealous of their subordinates getting ahead of them, or try to create road blocks in their progress, or try to talk behind their backs to senior leadership so they think those people are not doing a good job? This is a tell tale sign of an insecure person in a new leadership position who feels out of his/her element. I have two new managers people like that on my team, and I actually find it funny.
