Can somebody refer me at MBB, Accenture, EY and PwC? Victim of Deloitte layoff. Would appreciate any and all the help I can get!
How’s the WLB in EYP TSE group ? Thinking of applying but have heard horror stories of MBB equivalent stress levels.EY-Parthenon
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
What's the earliest in someone's tenure you've seen them fired from MBB and why? (Looking for validation that the feeling like I'm doing a sub-par job, but trying to be coachable, 7 months into my job doesn't equate to getting fired in the next 5-17 months...)
How close did you get to MBB and what did you you eventually get dinged on? Where are you now? (just got the L after curveball Q threw me off in one of the final rounds; looking for people who were in similar shoes 😭)
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
Looking for a Spring 2020 internship opportunity in MBB. I’d love to know more about the kind of opportunities and get any leads accordingly. Any advice would be appreciated.
How impacted are summer ‘20 internships for current students? Any cancellations or still moving forward at FAANG, F100, and MBB/B4?
I got a partner referral to MBB and am expecting to get a first round interview invite in several weeks. Unfortunately I've never done a real case in my life. How should I prepare?
6 YoE in digital marketing, + 2 in business + Master's (not MBA). Not super technical, but I'm a functional subject matter expert (easily top 5% in North America, probably higher) in one DM field. I want to work at MBB and now seems like a really good time to give a try. What level should I aim for? Associate? How much time should I spend practicing cases before applying? Any specific areas to make sure I upskill to check the right box? Any tips on how to make it work?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
If you are a 32 year old Manager at consulting firm does it make sense to start as a Consultant or Associate at MBB? I am trying to understand if it makes sense to go a level down just for a more prestigious firm.
For MBB interviews, what is a good gauge to expect for quantitative complexity? The case study books all have cases ranging in complexity from easy to hard, but not sure if I’ll get absolutely floored by the real interview
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad

Are any Apple agency vendors worried about potential layoffs due to Apple’s stock price and slump in sales?
Advice for negotiating an offer? The recruiter has already given me a salary band for the role, and I'd like to ideally hit the high end of the range. For context, its a PM role at a startup. I am in the process with 3 other companies, but too early in the process to have an offer to leverage. (I'm never negotiated an offer before)
Has anyone here ever sat for the CMA exam? How hard is it actually? Is part 1 doable with 2 months of studying?
Congrats to all the folks that got promoted at PwC! And thank you fishbowl - I wouldn’t have known about PwC promotion time without you.
First time flexing in NYC. Flight is at 6 am from JFK, I'm staying in UES. What time should I head out, 3:30?
A&M folks, how good (or not) are your health / dental/ vision benefits ? How much are out-of-pocket expenses for families? Also how is the 401(k) match?
Thoughts on EU ruling on Uber being a taxi firm > US impact? Sounds legit. Don't care much for their corporate culture, but care less for the high prices and poor service of regulated taxi firms
Who wants to donate Delta SkyMiles to the "I work in Fed MC so I hardly travel and barely have any miles but I'm trying to take my wife to mexico" fund? Cool thanks everyone!

Has anyone sponsored a child through Compassion International (or other charity)? What was your experience? I’ve always wanted to sponsor a child but want to make sure that donation is being used for right place/making direct impact to child’s life

For those in TAS/FDD, is anyone being pulled into other work (like audit or even PPP)? Or is it more common to be unassigned/have low utilization when things are slow?
We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
