Plus, #1 priority at least in terms of getting an interview. After that case performance is same bar. Hit rate for at least getting an interview is super high at all levels right now if you come from T2.

How much exp required? And for those with exp at both MBB and T2, is there really that big of a gap? Is it worth trying to make the switch?

Used to be probably at least 1 yoe at your firm…nowadays with the high demand even if you just started you can get an interview. I would try to make the switch now, never been a hotter market.

Consulting experience is always the most useful to get someone up to speed immediately. Many strong performers from T2 can slot right into MBB and do well. That said - it's often better to take a slight step back to make sure you can build the reputation as a strong performer as you learn the new culture and op model. Much is the same but how stuff gets done and culture does very somewhat materially across firms.

Whenever people talk about MBB, they always say that it’s easier when recruiting for FT compared to the internship because there are more slots. Is this only true for MBB or most T2/Big4?

Dear all, Could you please help me decide the better of the two schools in Canada: - Rotman School of Management (25k scholarship) - Smith School of Business (50k scholarship) Post MBA goals: Switch from Expert Consulting (Transformation practice) to Generalist/Integrative consulting at MBB I have 5+ yrs work experience at McKinsey & Company across APAC region and my base location is Delhi, India. Thanks in advance! :)

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!

Which firms use a single project staffing model aside from MBB? Not interested in B4. LEK - Single ZS - Single Clearview - Single? Putnam- Double Trinity - .... OW - .... Clarion - ... IQVIA - ... BBLS - ...

I have an offer for McKinsey EM - currently at T2 - when I gave notice my firm offered instant Director (I was 1 yr away). They are pushing hard and basically badmouthing McK scandals etc, raising integration risks with existing McK consultants - will be seen as outsider etc. any thoughts? There is a risk but in my view worst case I’m there for 2yrs then can decide next step with a great brand on CV. Comp isn’t that important to me ultimately we will all do well in the long run. Cheers

How do MBB compare in terms of support, e.g., research support, well-organized resources, e.g., fresh industry reports, past proposals, etc., graphics support, etc.? Will it be valid to assume that McKinsey and BCG are equivalent and Bain is lagging behind due to size?

(28y white male) If/when MBB asks for GRE/GMAT scores after someone has gone through B School, what do they look for? I’m choosing LBS, most likely to pursue entrepreneurship (previously made Forbes 30u30 for a startup), but I like to create options for myself. For MBB it seems they like GMAT of 700+. I thought my GRE of 324 was decent (higher than Wharton’s average of 322 last year), but the ETS converted score was only 680 gmat. This seems weird. Should I retake GRE or GMAT while I’m fresh?

It seems that a significant majority of MBA applicants coming from consulting are coming from well-known firms (ex. MBB, Big4, Accenture, Kearney, OW, etc.). I have a little over 1 YOE and plan on applying to M7 schools in 2-3 years, but I’m currently at a boutique firm that is not well-known. Is this disadvantageous (i.e. should I try to move to MBB - this is a goal of mine regardless but could also be post-MBA) or alternatively, how do I try to stand out when coming from a small firm?
