How good at Excel so I have to be if I’m considering MBB? (Any resources to get food quickly) ?
Any advice in starting the search for an exit opp? Or if you know if any good opportunities in nyc/remote? Consulting is burning me at both ends of the wick and I need to be somewhere I can sustainably contribute, learn and grow. It’s hard to search when you’re working till 1am. A bit about myself: -3 yoe, mainly tech pm & scm work via consulting -degree in SCM and info sys, cert. scrum master -environment/culture is very important to me, good people, reasonable hours, etc.
Junior associate looking to pivot from Middle East MBB to PE in North America in 2-3 years. Region's difficult to get PE exposure in given large focus on family office type work & sovereigns. Got a short call with the practice leader in our office soon to introduce myself, also trying to think of the best questions to ask them. Any tips on how to be best prepped for on cycle from people who've made the switch, irrespective of region?
I'm looking to move to one of the big 4 companies. I have alsomost 10 years of software engineering experience but no college degree. Is it possible to get in? If so what positions should I apply for?
What does M&A consulting at big 4 look like, especially at the entry level? All my previous experience is in audit/tax and I know nothing about consulting, just wanted to try something new. I liked my finance courses in undergrad, but not sure how relevant that is. Would I have ANY transferable skills from my accounting background? Can you explain what the work is like for a new hire? Especially if you've made a similar switch?
For those in big 4, how much time between accepting an offer and start date have you been able to ask for? Is a month feasible/how should one phrase it? Two weeks just doesn’t feel like enough with this heavy burnout/having to wrap up deals at old firm
Considering the FRM certification. Those who’ve taken it, how quant heavy is it? I have a compliance risk background and don’t have a deep math or statistics background. However, I want to expand my skillset. Any thoughts?
How do MBB PE exit opps differ by office ? Given the global staffing model, can a McKinsey & Company BA pursue SF/ NYC/ BOS PE if they are tagged to any American office?
I have a work experience of 3 years 1st year as software engineer in Capgemini Then did mba Then 2 years at wipro as Functional consultant Now i am plaaning to switch I also have frm level 1 certification How much hike can i ask in my new company?
Are there top consulting firms that take on experienced consultants w/o an MBA? I refuse to get an MBA and not sure if that precludes me from joining a top consulting firm. Thoughts?
When you explain to your non-accounting friends what the Big 4 is and they say, "oh sounds like the Ivy League for accounting firms" >>>>
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
Anyone move from a nontech background to a Solutions Architect role? I am working on getting my AWS cert but wondering if that + 3YOE is enough to move into an SA role
Thoughts on transferring from Deloitte to MBB? Should I do it? Am I crazy? Ladies, advise please.
I’ve been offered the opportunity to interview at 2 of 3 MBB in the near future. I applied earlier this year and I was initially rejected. I’m an older experienced candidate without a SO or kids. I have a MBA. I am at a good place right now in my career with my current employer. I would be coming in at a lower level but I’m not worried about that. Pay is the same. I will be working more hours at MBB. My resume is already solid but I’m sure MBB would help.McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
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 🤣

Has anyone moved from a consulting/technology consulting firm (like Accenture, Deloitte) to the IT department of an leading Industry organization (like an ex client) after serving long time in consulting? How was the experience? Was it a good move or did you regret?
I don’t know who needs to hear this (mostly As, Cs, SCs, and some Ms) but here goes. You are important to the project, but never so important that you cannot leave the project or firm for better opportunities. Being in hero mode is good where you save the day, everyday - but in fact that is neither advisable for your progression nor a recommended practice for the firm. If you have been performing and have had decent social skills, you will not have burnt a bridge when you leave.
