and impactful work reaching high levels of my organization. But I can't shake the feeling that the name of my firm doesn't immediately lead people to judge me as well as I could be judged for exit opportunities and networking. I get that you can always explain your story. But that's different from just being able to sell yourself without even trying because you're MBB. And there's always the possibility that my work, in fact, isn't up to par. Asking because I have a fast upward trajectory where I'm at (maybe just a bit slower than MBB) and there's a real cost to trying to and ultimately moving, between the effort, network loss, etc.

In the big 4 people just start referring you for jobs.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
