If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
What level from industry would you need to join MBB as a Principal/AP vs Partner? Most Partners seem to be VP level from large corporates / CSuite from well known startups
What’s the top 1-3 reasons folks leave big 4 to go to MBB (minus salary & career progression)?
How soon do transitions happen (involuntarily) at MBBs? I recently joined and am always worried that I’ll be let go. What are the conversations/processes like? [Asking for MBB because I’m also curious about the differences if any between the firms]
Have been wondering how much FAANG product managers get paid vs MBB for a like to like year of experience. Example, 4 years out of mba one would be Principal at BCG vs level 7 PM at Amazon. What does the delta look like at 8 years? 10 years etc?
Looking for a career switch from FMCG to Consulting (MBB). A recent graduate with good credentials. Please drop a like/comment if you can help/guide me. DM for any help or information on FMCG industry. Will be happy to help.
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
Long run what pays more MBB or FAANG ?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
I’m social media drained. I can’t keep up with all you 25 year olds who have $500k in savings, perfect bodies and skin, no student debt, manager-level jobs in tech and MBB, tons of friends and partners/spouses who love them. I’m out for a while ✌️
What's the big hype with MBB? Fairly new to US work life, I'm an ML Engineer (technical client facing role at KPMG). I got recruiters reach out on LinkedIn on behalf of 2 of the 3 acronyms and the roles seemed to be mostly focused on PowerPoint decks creation. I don't have an MBA which I understand it's a prerequisite for hiring in these groups, though I have a PhD in Machine Learning from a big technical school in the US. Is it worth pursuing such exits, friends?
Recently got an offer from MBB, but having a fear that ill have a hard time doing well because im really terrible at ppt. How long does it take to get proficient, any tips?
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
PwC I think our (up to) $20,000 referral bonus (for getting in a senior manager/director to the global mobility services group) seems to show more a sign of desperation especially as competitors offer $3,000-$4,000 for a senior manager referral bonus. What’s the deal? Have a certain number of that experience level been promised in the sale of the practice?
Zoom is dumb
Any Chicago fish here? Stopped by Rolex (Tourneau) on Michigan Ave, was told no watches and no wait-list - is this true or have people had success getting on the list? I have purchased from them before. If you've had success, which associates have you spoken with? Any advice?
Recommendations for a ‘low-cost’ gym on the UES? Around E. 75th to 85th street preferably. There is a NYSC on E. 76th but they need my credit card on file and I don’t feel comfortable with that
Anyone know what it’s like to exit from LS consulting to a Product Manager role at an LS tools company (like a Thermo Fisher)? Is the work similar to LS consulting, and would the pay be a step up or down from consulting?
Hey Fishes, Could you plz help me out with some legal openings. My sister needs referrals for a legal role. She has been trying since an year but is not getting interview calls. YOE : 3 years, Qualification: LLB & LLM TIA
My main financial goals this year were to pay off my car and credit cards (15-16k) by my birthday (December 1) or end of year. I’ve done both as of yesterday😊🎉. Thank you Jesus! I am so happy. It wasn’t easy, but whew. My only debt now is my mortgage. My 401k is only at 64k and I won’t even mention my nonexistent Roth lol, but guys I had to teach myself about financial literacy so I was late to the game. Keep working on your goals everyone, we’ll get there!
ACN 🐠. What is the expectation at a M role in US/UKI and can someone tell the difference from a delivery center like India? Might be transferring and would like to understand the added responsibilities from day to day perspective. Getting imposter syndrome now.
What do you think Verizon India's plans are to keep up with market inflation and rising job salary slabs? Attrition has been high, and understandably so. If you again get the same routine ~10% hike at year end, would you leave?
If i am up for promo and new firm start date is past promo, should i withhold this information and give my 2 weeks after? Worrying about burning bridge/ yet that promo/bonus is none neglieable. Ethic?
This question is not gender related, yet I don’t want to be ‘mansplained’ to, hence asking here ;) it’s related to taxable income at Deloitte...
