I'm a PhD student (graduating next year) looking to pursue consulting (ideally at MBB or Big 4). I would love to learn about full-time opportunities in New York starting 2023
Grew up in MBB. Hit the bamboo ceiling right at PPMD election (almost exactly 5 years ago). Went into industry at one of my clients. Now a C-suite officer. AMA.
People who make 250K+ - do you still feel like you need / want more? Do you have a number in mind that you think is enough? Do you think you will need more when you reach it?
MBB folks who externed/seconded at other places - how much did you make on an hourly basis? YOE / did you have an MBA? Wondering if my MBA internship ofders are competitive
Best Non-MBB comp at the Manager level? EYP - 200k + 20 bonus A&M - 140 base + 75% bonus S& - ? LEK - ? OW - ? ATK - ?
Which business schools are worth it for people who are already at MBB? Trying to assess the value prop of say Booth or Kellogg or Sloan vs. HSW
My manager has a must respond to my emails within 2 hours rule. Sometimes she sends them at 8pm. 3 of my team associates decided to reported her to HR for it. These new hires have no chill anymore in this economy.
Starting a job at MBB. What’s the dress code? Not big on formal wear, so any good value recommendations for shoes, belts, suits and shirts would really be appreciated! Thanks 🐠
I am currently a SA at EY-Parthenon on the West Coast and looking to case for MBB. Comment if interested.
If you are already a consultant, what are your actual post-MBA goal? Upgrade to MBB? Lateral over to IB for more work and more pay? FAANG for the RSUs? Those are the three paths I’ve identified where the business case holds water. Startups seem great but where’s the payoff?
Is the BCG Knowledge team equivalent to Offshore consulting / GBS teams or is it a back-end Knowledge team. Employees seem to suggest that they do consulting work as well. This team has sectoral specializations unlike the flagship model. Unbiased insights? I am currently in Big4 consulting and want to break into MBB. I also know switching tracks does not happen since I had an offer from McK Implementation and turned it down after speaking with many employees there. Also, the track is super slow.
Help me fill in the blanks: M7 MBA = MBB + Big 4 HBS = McKinsey Wharton = Bain Stanford = ??? Kellogg = Deloitte Sloan = ??? Columbia = ??? Booth = ???
Does anyone here regret joining MBB? If so, why?
Consulting firm tiers: M&A Tier S: MBB Tier 1A: S& (Deals Strategy, PEVC), EY-P (Strat, TSE/legacy OTS), A&M PEPI, LEK Tier 1B: OW, Kearney, AlixPartners Tier 2: Accenture, Deloitte, PwC (DDV) Tier 3: KPMG, FTI, West Monroe, other boutiques
Do not mean this as a satire. Genuinely curious. How does the prestige in industry works for management consulting? I am thinking 1. MBB 2. Deloitte and Strategy& 3. Big 3/OW/BAH/ZS Correct?
Just started from undergrad (target if that matters) at a T2, seeing as MBB is raising base salaries, I’m now I’m more motivated to lateral. How many months do I need at my current firm before I can be considered a for a lateral? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Is strategy consulting (even MBB) losing it's charm nowadays with the world moving more towards implementation projects and better opportunities available outside which have good pay as well as better WLB? Something like what happened with IB roles which were all the rage in B Schools few years back but now have tapered off a lot.
Sponsored MBB consultant planning on going back. What would you choose between a half scholarship at Wharton, no money at Harvard, and no money at Stanford?

When you go to the office to increase productivity but the client's Remote access doesn't work because IT says "connection is too secure" WFH the rest of the project
Anyone else hear about layoffs coming for S& people with low bill-ability? Heard this from a PwCer...any specific industry or region targets?
When you don't have an Uber receipt to show when you left the corporate holiday party because you walked home...and you have no idea what time you got home.
When you just friended your SM on Xbox and you can't decide if that's a good or bad thing for your work-life; but all you can think about is how you're going to kick his ass in Call of Duty.
Hi Guys. Need help evaluating two offers: 1. McKinsey - Associate in Risk Consulting - $165K base/30K sign-on. NYC/Chicago. 2.

How is Grant Thornton’s Strategy consulting practice. Currently at KPMG and was reached out by a recruiter from GT for a SA role in Business Consulting - Strategy.
What is the Solutions Delivery Senior Analyst role like in the Sales and Marketing Solutions Practice at McKinsey? It seems to be focused on employing Periscope for client projects, a proprietary tool that McK uses for revenue growth. What exit opportunities can one expect outside of McK after a few years in this practice/role? McKinsey & Company
Remember that as you go out there, you’ll find that the clients want the hole, not the drill.
