1st Post: How do MBB Risk & Regulation Teams compare to Big 4? It’s the only area where I’ve seen a Big4 Manager move to an MBB without a demotion (at least in Europe). Any insights are appreciated!:)
MBB consultant here, total 5 years of experience (of which 3 at MBB). Heading to HBS starting Fall 2022. Super keen on doing a summer internship in PE in-between the two MBA years. How good are my chances (conscious prior PE or IB experience is usually preferred), and what can I do to prepare (any links to resources would be appreciated)?
Could you please share the MBB salaries for 2nd year associates in London? Considering leaving the US and coming back home.
Any partners transfer from Big4 or Accenture to MBB and live to tell the tale? Did you like the change? Did you fit with the culture?

Best places for good WLB and decent salary. Coming out of MBB and I’m aiming for $100k-$120k but really a 9-5. Big banks seem like a good place in Toronto but it sounds like it varies greatly by team. Hoping to get a more specific answer
Hi, I’m about to graduate from my MBA and want to move back to India. Looking for possible openings at MBB/Kearney. Anyone willing to share or recommend?
I need help making up my mind on where to attend.
So I have two offers on the table : Tuck vs Yale SOM. I am getting 40k scholarship from Tuck and nothing from Yale.
I'm planning on going into consulting afterwards and am not sure what school to attend. I know Tuck's group oriented teaching is slightly more geared towards consulting.
What has been making me hesitate is the global presence of what Yale has in its name.
Would you say Yale has almost equal chance of getting into MBB as Tuck?
What should my compensation be for private equity due diligence work at MBB USA with 2-3 YOE? I have gone through final rounds with the consulting firm but they have yet to ask me about comp expectations.

People who have worked in both big four and MBB in strategy, what are the main differences that drives more value in MBB? Is it content? Are partners just better at selling the work?
Thinking of applying to M7 schools and really unsure about my chances.
I am latin american, started in a LatAm office at MBB and x-fered to the US last year. I have 3 YOE and a military background. I have an engineering degree with pretty bad GPA (3.1) and a solid GMAT (730). Is M7 out of the question due to GPA? or is the MBB brand and financial sponsorship strong enough to overcome?
What are your thoughts?

Interviewing at Microsoft for a Senior Program Manager role. The recruiter said PMs at Microsoft are technical and some of the interviews will focus on technical questions/design problems.
