Attending Appalachian State University for athletic reasons as I played baseball here. Will finish my degree in Supply Chain Management in December. I want to break into consulting in the supply chain and operations sector in NYC. I would love to connect with anyone in Big 4 - Deloitte , KPMG, PwC, EY and MBB to get some insight on the college recruiting cycle coming up. Currently have a 3.81 GPA, family startup company experience, and restaurant industry experience.
Hi all! I’m considering b school but am not sure whether or not I should go for it. I currently work at OW and am looking to stay for awhile and maybe try out MBB / something else in the future. I went to a top 50 uni but nothing close to M7. If OW can sponsor my b school I’m thinking that it would be a great opp…lmk your thoughts :)
At a boutique firm for just over a year, I know this isn’t the best place for my growth, but a promotion is coming. Am I better of sticking around or try to go to MBB or big 4 at an associate level?
Anyone tried getting on an early promotion track for MBB manager level as an experienced hire? Can you share your experience?
Does anyone work in cloud strategy? I am just about to matriculate out of ccg into cloud strategy group at Deloitte. What sort of work do they actually do? (I’ve seen previous posts but not much detail) Also, do other Big 4, ACN and MBB also have cloud strategy practices? If so, how do they compare?
I’m a current Data Scientist at Deloitte, looking to make the move to MBB. Don’t have a master’s or PhD but have experience leading data science team and multiple certifications - does anyone have any advice or recommendations on how to make the move successfully? P.S. if you’re commenting, can you please like the post so I can DM you?
Aside from B4, MBB, FAANG what other companies still sponsoring given this environment? Girlfriend is international and has T20 legal/business education, international legal/MBB/VC experience. Cont.
MBB 🐠, are you pressured to get dinners with your case team or do most people do their own thing after leaving the office.
Backpack recommendations? Starting at MBB soon.
Opinions on Oliver Wyman and how they compare to MBB, B4, and other T2s? Have the potential to start the recruitment process there relatively easily but curious to hear thoughts of those actually in the industry. Thanks!
I work in capital projects, 7 YOE, and am exploring going the consulting route. Is MBB worth it to target at this point in my career considering you have to case to get in? Im assuming they like MBAs as well at this many years which I don’t have. Thanks in advance McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
4.5 YOE, at 135K 28 years old. Was thinking about starting to study for my GMAT in September to take the exam in Dec/Jan. If the goal is MBB/FAANG, Am I making too much to make it worth it? Currently do Cyber Security and have an IT background
Can investment bankers answer this question: do people always choose bulge bracket (GS, Citi, ML etc) over boutique investment banks (Moelis, Houlihan Lokey etc)? I am asking this to understand if people will choose T2 firms like Oliver Wyman over MBB in the future. There is a value of working at a high prestige boutique in investment banking. Can the same happen in the future in consulting?
Do people at your funds take Pat/Mat leave? Work at a UMM now and doesn't appear to be a thing which feels very different from mbb where people take 3+ months fully off.
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼

Adult (over 25) and don’t know how to drive yet :( Does anyone know where I can take some in-car driving lessons in Dallas? Appreciate any suggestions! Thanks
After the holiday break, sheer amount of issues and workload got dumped to my plate and attention. Now, I’m exhausted even though it’s Monday. does not help with partners acting like they are ‘too busy’ and we have to workaround their schedule every time.
How is VMLY&R New York team ? Saw an open position for an Art Director. Any referral for the same?
Regrettably hit plat on United and AA this week. Should I shift over to delta now? La/nyc based and plan on some Europe travel this year. Flights being taken will be transcon bus for earnings.
I have consistently gotten Bs in every single class in law school with a single A- and B+ thrown into the mix. I have extensive work experience prior to school having worked at a firm as a legal assistant and in entertainment before that. Where should I be applying now that firms have concluded summer program hiring and probably aren’t excited by my mediocre grades? I am intelligent and hard working with excellent interpersonal skills, but when it comes to exams I am weak. Any advice for a 2L?
Most companies offer 2 or 3 weeks vacation for new employees. Is it a big turn-off to hiring managers for a request of 4 weeks? How many of you get separate PTO days for miscellaneous personal stuff or work/life balance? What is everyone getting these days for number of sick days? I think the standard 5 isn’t enough now that everyone has the chance of getting the flu and COVID.
What is a good promotion raise % from staff to senior staff? Assuming you are a high performer.
Anyone start a new job remotely and have tips to feel more integrated into the team/agency? I left my previous agency of 7 years and am now 3 months into a new gig but feel really disconnected, especially now that work is picking up. Team/agency culture used to be what got me through busy periods but having trouble finding that now. Lots of video calls and 1 on 1s to check in but still siloed in my home office. We all work remote from different states so going into the office seems pointless.
