Hi fishes! Staring at an MBB soon! Understand this question has been raised before but I’d love to hear experiences people had with specific online courses for excel and PowerPoint and how relevant they turned out to be once you’ve started the job (eg Wall Street Prep / breaking into Wall Street has been brought up before but is it not “consulting” enough?)

Love the mass of Deloitters infiltrating MBB lately

Gotcha. It seems like a good time to explore it, especially with the high demand. A couple people in my network has left the firm to join them. Good luck.

Which MBB and just chill enjoy the time off

Ya definitely wait it out until you join us :) Welcome!

Is it better to wait until promo before switching to other firms? Applying to MBB but worried that if I get the offer I’ll end up switching right before I get my promo from Deloitte. I would likely reset to entry level at MBB either way but the pay would be a substantial bump from my current pay (even after promo). I’m in my second year at Deloitte out of undergrad.

I’m a new MBB partner. I was heads down focused on this goal for the last few years. Now that I’m here, I’d appreciate any advice for how I should think about my early partner years. How do I figure out what my next goal should be? How should I work / prioritize differently? I would especially love to hear stories of how other partners approached their first few years. Thanks in advance!

Happy Saturday :) Anyone at MBB willing to look through my resume and potentially help me understand what skills im lacking? Current international student that has had no luck with getting interviews through campus recruitment and I don't completely understand what's going on. I've had a few seniors and school coaches look through my app and they don't have any tangible feedback. I would truly appreciate your perspective, thanks so much!

I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
