Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
Are you at a disadvantage recruiting for PE as a second or third year MBB out of undergrad as opposed to first year? Or do PE firms value the diligence experience more?
Does anyone know the MBB areas of growth in the coming years for the Toronto practices? I want to align myself to those areas to give myself the best shot for lateraling over in a year or two.
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
Accenture was equated to the same tier as MBB by a mentor who has worked as a c-suite executive for some major banks. MBBA??? Is it a thing or just one executives opinion?
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!
Does B4 let people go the same day as their resignation only if they’re going to a direct competitor? How about MBB or a tier 2 consulting firm? Have people been let go immediately in case they go to FAANG or other industry firms?
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
~6 months into career from UG working in PE DD, I’m extremely interested in a small pivot to Restructuring & Turnaround. My firm doesn’t have this due to conflicts. Can any MBB🐠 chat about their team?
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
For folks that went from MBB/T2 into Big 4, why did you make that switch and did you get a boost in title that you would not have reached at MBB/T2.
Does MBB recruit at one year MBAs?
Want to reach out to old friends (school mates / interned together) who are at MBB. Best way to reach out to not be “that guy asking for a referral”. Even though that’s exactly what I’m doing.
￼￼flying out of the US tonight, still curative hasnt returned my pcr results yet. Anyone do the pcr test in LAX? How early should I go?

Got interviewed in top companies through third party recruiters and now waiting for final decision & offer from all 3. But my goal is to get full time role which is hard due to my OPT status. Advice?
Does anyone here use class pass? Are there good gyms and classes in the River North area? Also, if I signed up in Chicago, could I use class pass in whatever cities I’m required to travel to post-September 1st?
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
Going to be in Madrid for the next 4 days on vacation. Any recommendations?? Used points so will be staying at the Westin Palace Madrid.
Does anyone share a classroom with someone who totally disrespects all of your stuff and space? (AND allows their students to do the same when you aren't in the room?!) I am trying my best but we are only a few weeks in and I don't know how I'm going to handle the rest of the year like this. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who has also gone through this.
For those in more “elite” big four groups (S&, Parthenon, etc.) - how do you feel about big four culture? Was it a preference over MBB when recruiting?
It’s really incredible to me how people who go into tech and have such in depth knowledge of systems can’t figure out how to use Slack 😂

What’s a typical Art Buyer salary?
People always say sue the company or owner. Is it that easy to sue someone? Especially around employment when people are getting laid off due to Covid. I think Deloitte or any big consulting firm it’s not easy to sue them, they are well protected
Working in Tokyo and the only American/consultant. Unlimited expense account. Consulting lottery?
Should I negotiate salary no matter what? Asked for low 70s and offered 77. Wondering if I should just take it and call it a day to avoid looking greedy. I’m fine with what they offered, but obviously the only time you can negotiate salary is the time you’re offered it right?
I've been "voluntold" to demo an "enrichment lesson" to be filmed and broadcast on our school district tv channel. I'm totally drawing a blank on what to do...what is broadly appealing from US hist?
