Has anyone exited to a FAANG equivalent (uber, airbnb, Tencent) from Big4, then further exited into MBB? Interested in seeing if it’s a possibility
Since COVID I have been actively recruited by several agencies. While being sought out for your experience and reputation is complimentary, what isn't is being ghosted by senior leadership on conference calls or video interviews. Has anyone experienced an uptick in being ghosted by interviewers?

Failed McKinsey final round last month - structure was good, Personal Experience was strong but I failed a quant portion of the case.
I have a BCG final round this Friday. Can MBB fishes point out any differences between the two and what to expect. The structure is two cases with some behavioral stuff before/after.
Anyone had a FAANG company try to mislead you in applying for a role you’re overqualified for, hoping you’ll jump just for the name? I was approached by Apple for a channel sales role. I made it clear that I have been a senior manager in the past, and wouldn’t take a more junior position than that. The recruiter said the seniority can be defined later, and we should just talk. I had one interview, which went really well. Next thing I knew, they wanted to schedule 6 more interviews [cont]
Is it common to get contacted by an MBB recruiter directly? I got approached by a recruiter for a specific practice

McKinsey & Company Hey there!
I have an interview at McKinsey Design for the Designer role. Any thoughts? How’s culture, work life balance, projects, etc? McKinsey & Company
I have been working 20 years and with 2 kids now I am feeling completely burn out. Right now I m waiting for my company yo laid people off and sort of looking forward to a bit of career break. I feel too drained to interview now even through I hate my job.. nor do I have any interest with taking a job that require in office commuting 3 hrs a day. For those that have taken a career break, how hard is it to go back to working? Does it set your career back a lot?
Are McKinsey cases on the website representative of the cases in all rounds of the interview process?
Why isn't Strategy& viewed as on par with MBB? Extremely high caliber people and output and many leaders are ex-MBB
Call me old fashion but have a beard or don’t have a beard. If you have an in between beard, you need to shave for an interview. This isn’t a hipster conference.
How do you determine you hourly rate for freelancing? I recently got a huge salary boost. Old coworker is asking if I can do 8-10 hours a week for couple months to help his new company get off the ground w some products. If I were to take my salary into consideration, I’d ask for around $100 an hour. I used to think freelance should be more than my salary calculated hourly. But I think my old coworker and his new boss would scoff at $100 bucks an hour, they’re probably thinking $30-40
Team, for those like us in this insecure state, by a chance have we thought of floating a petition of what can be done here.

Alright let’s be real... buy sell hold GME, AMC, BB, NOK tonight? (Looking for more than “to the moooooon!”)
How do you handle partners who are flat out rude to you? For example, one will routinely give me assignments and either give me no information about what she wants or give me the wrong information, then berate me when it’s not the way she wants it. I’m the most senior associate at the firm and bring in a lot of money as well as my own clients and don’t feel like it’s acceptable to treat me (or anyone) this way, but particularly given my status as close to partner.

Am I the only one who has barely any work to do? I finish my work in a matter of a few hours, and spend my days bored out of my mind. Worst part is that I have to stay at the office until 8PM min, because otherwise it looks unprofessional. I fear that they want to fire me or that they’re unhappy with my work, but at every quarterly review, I have nothing but praise with minor comments. I realise I’m lucky, but can’t help but feel guilty, like a fraud and bored.
Anyone have recommendations on the best resources for PE recruiting prep, assuming I’m starting from square 1 (aka little knowledge of private equity mechanics)? Thank you!! 🙏🏻
