Good answers / themes for why you’re looking to leave current firm (ex OW) for MBB?

I would avoid criticizing your current firm and just highlight what excites you about MBB. General examples below: 1) L&D opportunities - give examples of the training opportunities you’ve heard about (although agree with A1 that I wouldn’t put this first) 2) Broader range of case work across industries at C-Suite level 3) Growth opportunities (promotions every two years) 4) People (personal connections to firm you’ve made throughout recruiting or during previous career/education) Fully recognize OW has some (or even most) of these to an extent but would still avoid bashing your old firm.

I’m not sure I’ve ever heard us ask such a thing. People always want to come to MBB, so it’s usually more about what you’re looking for in the new firm, not why you’d leave somewhere else.

We would literally never ask this. We don’t care.

funny

Yeah - WE ALREADY KNOW WHY!

Would it be bad to say, firm doesn’t focus on L&D as much as I’d like or too negative?

That’s not negative but a strange answer tbh

I had the worse interview experience with PwC. The recruiter is totally unprofessional. Forgot the scheduled interview time twice. Finally, called me and the interview went well. I was told that someone from the practice will contact me for the next round of interviews in one or two days. If everything goes well, I should have an offer in hand by Friday ( that was Monday) because they try to move fast nowadays. Now, three weeks passed, never heard anything from anyone... been totally ghosted...
