Think the Aussies pronounce it “Maccas”


I just read it in my head as “Mick”. Never said the abbreviation out loud or heard anyone here say it out loud

Certainly Mick-KAY. 😆

Curious what career trajectory people think would be more lucrative in the future…DEI or Strategic Planning? I’m currently an OD consultant with an ICF coaching certification. I’ve mostly specialized in org effectiveness, team effectiveness and exec coaching. I’m at a fork in the road in trying to be smart about my choices. I’ve not been one to make my future decisions based on money but I’m no longer in a position to just go on passion and interest alone. Your insights would be helpful!

Additional Posts in All Things MBB

McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Hi all, I am joining an MBB technology strategy practice from a T3-T4 firm without coming in at a lower level (such as SC—>C, M->SC.). Any general advice/tips from fellow fishes who have done the same?
I am aware of the increase in work hours & effort of work required.

Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group BCG Platinion


Is it unheard of to go from B4 consulting to MBB without an MBA? At what level are the chances of success highest? I have 3 yrs WE. Is it really that black and white(get an mba or bust)? Anything you can share on this front would be a huge help!


SOS: live in The US, getting married in Greece and the venue fell through. Will not be able to look at other options. If anyone has travelled to Paros and can help out, would be much appreciated!


Anxiously waiting for MBB background check to clear so I can put in my notice! One of my companies is in the UK, no longer in existence and I’d have to chase to find anyone to contact. I do have my first and last payslip that I used to verify for my current job (at a bank), do you think that’s going to be good enough for Sterling?

Bain has a written test now for lateral hires? Is it similar to Casey with BCG? Thank you McKinsey for keeping it fun with just a game😂


So I just got an email inviting me to do a virtual recorded interview with Bain

Does anyone have any insights on whether this is the first round?

What type of questions do they ask?


HYP grad. BCG NJ 1st round coming up next week. Looking for other serious casers if anyone interested :)


How much better are the exits ops from MBB vs T2. Don’t think I want to do consulting forever. But close to getting offer to lateral. Do I take it and exit in 1-2 years or just exit from T2? Thanks 🐠


Cold applied to McKinsey and have an initial interview coming up. Should I expect a normal screening discussion (discuss the role, experience, salary, etc)? Also open to any advice for an experienced hire moving through the interview process.


Bain fish - would you please give the equivalent titles for McK BA, Assc, EM, AP, P?
