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
Has anyone left MBB for more "tangible" consulting (digital/tech/product/SI) and never looked back? Getting pretty jaded with the endless slideware.
MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
Has anyone exited to a FAANG equivalent (uber, airbnb, Tencent) from Big4, then further exited into MBB? Interested in seeing if it’s a possibility
Hello fellow 🐠 1. Thinking about starting recruiting for MBB around October timeframe. Any advice? 2. How much YOE would justify doing a 2-page resume? 3. Do you recommend including PRD experience on resume? Currently a 2nd year SC (post MBA hire | non-target) with a target promotion in 2021 and way below the compensation figures compared with my peer group.
MBB doesn't understand strategic design strategy nor how to deploy it. It always ends up bastardized into the hypothesis-driven approach. Prove me wrong.
MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
EY Parthenon, Strategy&, Monitor Deloitte are NOT Big4 shops. They are a class apart! Only a notch below MBB. Change my mind.
Speaking purely from an economical perspective, would FAANG or MBB offer more $$ coming out of an MBA program? What about after 10-15 yrs?
Accenture gives MBA strategy interns $50k towards 2nd yr MBA tuition. Do other consulting companies (not MBB) pay for your 2nd year MBA tuition if you do an internship with them?
Been with the firm two years, was rated at next level for almost all of my snapshots this year and performed at a SA level. Was just told I'm not being promoted since I haven't been in the role (cont)

What will MBA recruiting from top schools look like for MBB firms in 2020? Do you anticipate taking fewer MBA interns than usual from schools like Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton this year vs prior years?
Does interview attire/outfit matter as much? Especially if you’re currently employed and can’t exactly show up in a suit to work 🤷🏽♂️
I visited a friend of mine who has a 1 year old baby, and asked me if I wanted to get a dog. then she asked me if I wanted to get a plant 😂. since it is a good way to take care of something else, and to train for the future. Honestly I find this hilarious, but I don’t think having a plant or a dog will make my life fulfilling 🤣🤣
Anyone else open to discussing salaries? I was the only associate in my small Texas firm (3 attorneys including me) and paid $40,000. Promise of bonus, but no show. I felt like that was way too low.
So I found out I was pregnant the same day I started a new job. :( How screwed am I in terms of maternity benefits?
Have a Marriott free night from the Megabonus expiring soon with no real plans. Any way I can get them to convert this to points?

Making mortgage decisions - rates are very low. At 3%, is there any reason to take a 15yr mortgage, buy points, etc? Put the $$ into the market for much higher returns over time, no? What am I missing

34 weeks pregnant and have severe SPD pain. My appt with my physio is next week, anything I can do to alleviate the pain and discomfort now? My whole pelvic region hurts when I move / change position.
PSA: Your pregnant coworker is juggling fatigue, nausea, aches and pains and/or “pregnancy brain”, along with their workload in a pandemic. So if they’re performing as usual (or better), that’s nothing to sniff at. And if they’re sometimes not performing up to par, cut them some slack okay? Sincerely, your pregnant coworker who initially underperformed but is now kicking butt.
Quick vent: I’ll be a first time mom in about 5 weeks and my 3rd trimester is majorly catching up with me. I’ve been grinding pretty hard/want to work as long as I can but my boss (who has genuine empathy issues) is crushing me with work, taking vacation 2 wks before my due date and random days off with me as her OOO go-to. I’ve expressed the need to slow down a bit but it’s falling on deaf ears.Grateful to have a job and paid leave, and the ability to wfh but ah! Thoughts on how to re-approach?
