Has anybody made the switch from Big 4 consulting to MBB? What was the interview process like, and how did you prepare?
I’ve heard a lot that partners go “off-script” in MBB final round interviews. What does this mean in terms of how the interview goes and how can I best prepare for that?
Looking for a new job. How do I position myself /show I’m more qualified for a Senior cw role?
Hey folks - Any idea on various levels of the Managing Director position in Accenture - is it a Partner equivalent level? Any idea about pay? Thanks!
Are there any examples of former Black consultants making it to C-Suite at a company? In business school, they say MBB is the C-suite factory but has this been true for Black people in the C-suite?
What would be the most useful certification for a generic data analyst to obtain for maximum exit opportunities?
Finally got my MBB offer ☺
Turned down an offer to run Berkshire Hathaway and accepted a role at Deloitte! Only catch was I had to sacrifice my first born! Ready to join to D family - can't stop thinking about D! #deloitteproud
What does a manager with 8-10 years in Big 4 consulting experience (5-6 years in FSI) make in the market today?
Finally watched The Social Dilemma on Netflix. It didn’t say anything that we didn’t already know about social media and big tech, but it’s still alarming and worth the watch. The biggest question I have after watching is why do people still romanticize FAANG? Is just purely the money and prestige? Are we selling our soul for a highly regarded exit opportunity? Just curious.
I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)
So I’m getting recruited for a position at Deloitte where I meet maybe 25% of the requirements. Didn’t even do a phone screen, but got an email from the recruiter saying the team wants to meet me for an hour long interview. Has this happened to anyone before?
MBB folks: how often do your firms hire PhD's?
Had referral for BCG last year, but got rejected because of the hiring freeze. And now BCG is actively hiring! Can I reapply and secure an interview? Or do I really have to wait for the one year ban to pass
Best way to move up quickly in my position?
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Recently accepted an offer to be a copywriter intern this summer! 😁 It’s a goal I’ve been working toward for the past two years. Super excited, it’s a small shop with great talent who have worked at some incredible places. Was wondering if anyone had advice on how I can make the most of this experience and hopefully get signed on full time afterwards? Or how I can leverage the internship to find a Jr. role elsewhere?
Health care is being rationed in several states. This is getting serious. This is definitely worth learning more about as hospital refuse critically ill patients who do not have covid. Emergency rooms are literally flooded, critically ill pts (w covid) wait hours on end in their car to get in to see a doctor. What a MESS https://www.adn.com/nation-world/2021/09/13/alabama-man-dies-after-being-rejected-by-43-hospitals-in-3-states-family-says-as-covid-packs-icus/ https://www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/alaska-joins-idaho-in-rationing-health-care-as-hospitals-are-packed-with-covid-patients-and-who-says-africa-is-being-left-behind-in-vaccine-push-11631717516 https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/2021/09/14/amid-covid-19-overload-providence-alaska-medical-center-now-prioritizing-care-under-crisis-standards/

Does anyone know how long is the H1B processing time right now ? (For new visa). My case was received on May 21st - Still have not heard anything.
Regional model - do they actually hold you to that during staffing? My project team seems to be from all over but didn’t know if this was unique.
Do you consider a retention bonus as a counteroffer if you did not mention you have an offer from another company?
About when should I start prepping for interviews? I submitted H / S last week but havent been able to focus on interviews yet
I think my friend is about to make a huge mistake and I need additional arguments for why the following is a bad idea: friend got an offer as an associate at an AmLaw 1000 firm (similar to Polsinelli) and an offer as a staff attorney at a non-market V100. Because the staff attorney firm is more prestigious, friend is leaning that way. I’ve been trying to tell them it’s a terrible idea since it’ll be hard to get another associate role after that.
Sigh. Why do I *always* have to be the one to remind the team to ensure there's diversity in storyboards? 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏿♀️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏿♂️🤦🏽♀️
Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career. I’m currently reading sales books, watching Keenan’s YouTube channel, and learning all I can. I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?
In the interview process for a FAANG. It’s been almost 2 months, and I’ve been through four interviews. Still waiting on final decision. Does that seem like a long time frame?
What is right mortgage rate strategy for first time homebuyer - 2.6% with 1.5k lender credit or 2.5 with 1.8k points fee fee. I am leaning towards 2.5 with assumption that I will be able to refinance in future with 2.4 when rates go down further. What would be your choice
What’s big 4 to another big 4 experienced sm signing bonuses looking like in FDD, right now?
Any Deloitte fish here willing to chat about reduction in hours due to medical/disability?
Norwegian living in Norway with my Canadian GF. Planning to move to Canada due to her visa running out. SC at Deloitte working mainly as a Solution Architect + DevOps Engineer, but also experience with Cloud Strategy and IT DD's. Should I be able to find a company to sponsor my visa, or is my best bet an internal transfer? Any other tips? Thank you in advance!
