I went for the people. Pay, prestige, type of work etc seemed pretty similar. But felt like the people and style at Bain was more fun and collaborative which I preferred. Have a few friends at other MBBs and think I made the right choice personally from their stories. But Bain just suited my personality more. All of them are great firms so don’t think you can go too wrong either way

Same, choosing for the people was definitely the right choice for me. It’s a hard job with long hours, I would rather do it with people I genuinely like.

The people were very similar, offices were all in the same city, so I just went with the most highly ranked and regarded. I’m cool with the decision.

It always comes down to the people and your personality. McKinsey people blew me away with how genuine and caring they were. I’ve experienced the same ten fold since being here.

This makes me excited to start next month. I was blown away by the recruitment/interview process and how much everyone wanted to help me succeed 😃

Went for Bain for the people. I had an offer from BCG (and never interviewed at McK). Sometimes I wonder how working at McK is as the #1

Same here. Had offer at all 3, chose BCG for the people :) 100% no regrets!

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'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?

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?
