End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
If you had your pick of MBB, which would you join? Running a very informal poll - like the comment of the corresponding firm below McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
What have you all heard about MasterCard consultants? Are they an internal team or are they just like MBB consultants traveling to clients and all that?
In case H1B gets denied (I hope that doesn’t happen), what countries have you considered moving to besides Canada. Indian national and pending transfer to MBB if that helps.
MBB/LEK or IB? An important factor is that I want to end up in NYC - born and raised wi to a SO and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. I have read the MBB/LEK competition in NYC is fierce… how true is this?
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
Potentially silly questions but when people generally say that you have to be at MBB to make the jump to PE, are these folks doing PE type work like diligence or something relevant or are they doing more broad type of consulting and getting into PE because they have the MBB brand?
Got 2 offers, 1st from British American Tobacco- Planning Expert 10% pay rise and 2nd from small company(focus on data science) 50% pay rise, Data Science Project Goal: to break into MBB or FAANG
MBB 🐠 I’ve heard that your firms generally only keep the top 20% of newer resources after 2yrs. How true is this? How likely is it for someone to get counseled out at the 2yr mark?
Do those from MBB and BB banks have best shot at B School? I rarely hear about T2s and Big 4 getting into m7
How competitive is the mbb and tier 2 consulting industry. Any tips on how to best survive and succeed vs other smart peers?
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
Setting up our first small business 401k! Should we be an ERISA 3(38) advisor? What are the pros and cons?

I'm having difficulties connecting with my team over Zoom, and I'm feeling lonely. Anyone else?
How to set boundaries at work with the Covid campaigns? We’re already working long hours during the week. I really can’t take this on the weekends too. I know you’re supposed to ‘save your job’ but...
Was lucky to get a job shortly after being laid off. Work’s not hard but feeling burned out cause of bad process, meaningless jobs on top of the pointlessness of everything happening. How you coping?
Has anyone broken up with someone over a difference in COVID boundaries? If so, how did you know it was a deal breaker? I’m considering ending my relationship because my partner is too strict (i.e. doesn’t really leave the house for much).
Currently making base salary of 200k in NY, what would be an equivalent salary in Toronto to have the same lifestyle?
Anyone else delayed at LGA? Sky club meet up!
I interviewed for a role for another team within my organization and went on PTO for 2 days. When I came back my director told me I didn’t get the role but there were better plans for me in the near future. I found out from HR after that I did get the role but the organization decided to pause the offer waiting for another one in the near future. How would you react if your Director and company make a career choice for you without consulting with you?
1.5 years in T2 consulting and 6 mo from my first promotion. Got a pretty great offer at the industry and company I’d like to end up in down the road at analyst level. Worth waiting for promo?
If you’re in LCOL or MCOL, is your firm losing people to California firms offering remote work and California wages? I know some have left for Seiler; Citrin Cooperman; CohnReznick; Abbott, Stringham, and Lynch; Frank Rimerman; Green Hasson Janks. Just curious if it has affected your office at all and if you left for one of those firms, what is your experience so far?
Anyone else care more about getting into a top grad school (ivy- MIT-Stanford) more to please your grandparents and overseas relatives than the career benefits? I feel a weight has been lifted as the eldest sibling
I get nervous when I have to communicate project status in huge conference calls. Any tips?
