Hi Fishes, I have two years of MR experience and looking to switch to consulting roles. MBA from tier 2 college, so MBB isn't an option. Any additional courses I can do to maneuver this path? Suggestions welcome.

Currently part of knowledge team working on M&A related projects within MBB (coming from Big Four consulting). Feel like the job description didn't actually match the role, doing mostly research-related tasks and have 0 client interation. Just received an offer for Accenture strat (M&A) group, with sizeable TC increase. Is the change worth it: client interaction + travel + involved fully in project?or is the "downgrade" to accenture too large to outway the benefits. Headhunters love MBB.

Would anyone that has moved from Big 4 to MBB be willing to chat for 15-30 minutes? I’m hitting a point where I am enjoying consulting (advisory) but I’m not sure the idea of narrowing in on a specific industry and exact skillset appeals to me. Seems like MBB is broader and I’m curious (also not assuming I could even get in, but I want to explore the option).

Hello Accountants, I have a question.

I just finished my first tax internship and everybody said that the CPA was unavoidable but nobody talked about any benefit of getting a master whatsoever. What do you guys think?

I want conceptual/high level feedback, but I feel like it’s rude to say “I know how to do that.” How do I respectfully get design direction that also respects my competency?
