How difficult would it be to exit into MBB from Big 4 financial services consulting? Obviously it’s dependent on the candidate, but is this a switch one can accomplish without going back for an MBA?

Depends. We’ve had some folks from Big 4 come in at C1 level recently! ACN strategy and HC strategy firms. No MBA.

What’s the best way going about this? Do you pretty much have to know someone to have a chance?

possible without MBA through networking but you would start as a BA

Hey everyone, I’m in advisory at a big 4 firm specializing in the healthcare industry for business process compliance. Just got a recruiting email for a startup on-demand health insurer firm for a revenue operations analyst role. The description seems intriguing, especially for my interest towards financial management and overall process efficiency. I was wondering if anyone has any insights on what this role would look like?

Advice needed. Got a job offer from my dream company, 15k bump in salary, stock options, large jump in PTO, 40 hour work week and way better healthcare. So all in all a better opportunity. I feel guilty leaving my Big 4 job during this time. New company said I can take a month to wrap up some work at my current job if needed. Leaving now would leave my team drastically short staffed for the fall. New hires pushed till 1/1/21. Should I feel guilty? How do I tell them and not burn bridges?
