To change to a digital MBB it’s not impossible. I interviewed at BCG through a referral from networking and doing coffees. Not sure how the others are but at McKinsey I think they specialize by industry more than function so you could do more open ended type of digital work but within an industry.

Yeah I’d say that’s about right. The people that have made the jump seem to be more overall architect types than singular implementation skills

If you are very good at what you do and articulate sure. Why not

How good is your firm at helping you to acquire new technical skills and business knowledge? I am at a big four, and there is 0 appropriate technical training.

Is MBB like that, as well? Also, most managers and higher are so abstracted from tech that I don’t even know a single good expert to ask for advice
