Made the jump. 100% worth the effort. It’s fundamentally the same job but the amount of improvement in resources available, people investment, and overall culture makes it differentiated

(I didn't come from a t2) It's pretty rare to find happy people doing interesting work with a promising trajectory. Between that rarity and the fact that lateral moves into MBB are difficult transitions, IMO you should only switch firms if you have a compelling reason. YOLO can be that reason - just recognize that you're putting a lot on the table.

Very helpful BCG1. Thanks for taking the time to add more color and sharing valid points to consider.

I switched firms to give me a better chance at a top B school. The biggest difference I’ve seen is how much more MBB is willing to invest in its people.

Got it. Wonder if McK has that

Interned at T2 and MBB and the resourcing element is very real. From what I saw during the internship and what i hear from friends who stayed, I’m sensing a lot more investment in personal growth (e.g. less “suck it up” attitude from staffing/leadership when you’re on a bad case, higher expectations for learning opportunities, etc.); also international opportunities were pretty key to me and at the T2 firm I would’ve had to re-interview to switch to another country

Apparently some states are wanting teachers to post online all the curriculum materials they are using & their lessons plans. It is for transparency. I have no problem posting all of that online. But it does open up opportunities for our lessons & materials to be scrutinized out of context. I truly believe it’s another way to undermine teachers. It allows people who know nothing about teaching to tell us how to do our job. This all started with CRT phobia.
