Has anybody made the switch from Big 4 consulting to MBB? What was the interview process like, and how did you prepare?

Literally no one. It's never happened.

Nope. Once your big 4, MBB doesn’t touch you. There’s nothing you can do to change their minds. It’s against their company policy

I did the opposite, McKinsey to EY. Old colleague of mine went from Deloitte to McKinsey, so yes it’s possible. Happy to share more about the interview process.

Calculate how many airplanes are in the air right now in the US. Otherwise, show the value you’ve created for your clients and ideally tell a story using quantitative data (like other company interviews)

All 50. Also throw in Puerto Rico and other provinces to show you’re taking all into consideration

Y’all so mean🤣

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?

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

Ladies. I am looking for help. Currently, my SO and I have completely combined finances in one account. We have been married for 5 years and have a kid on the way. Since the past few months, I have realized that I want some autonomy with my money and want an amount or % of my salary in a separate private account. I want to suggest him to do the same. I am nervous to talk to him about this as I feel that he may not like the idea. He manages all of our finances currently including investments

Might seem like a silly question but do any of your firms, or do you know of any firms, that have fairly progressive cultures? WFH has made me realize how incredibly stifled I felt in the office. I want to be able to show some tattoos, have a purple streak in my hair, wear artistic clothing etc and still be taken seriously. Does this kind of utopia exist or am I being extremely naive? I'm originally an artist. I hate how much I've realized that I've stifled my personality for this industry.
