FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
Would CBS J-term make sense if you want to transition from MBB to a US start-up or FAANG?
My current firm didn’t require a case interview. Would like to leave soon, but want to have my ducks in a row. How can I best prepare for Big 4 and MBB interviews? How did you all do it?
Those of you who were married before you joined consulting, did you get pushback from your spouse? Mine was a MBB consultant before marriage. When I got an MBB offer our relationship changed (contd)..
New joiner in a few weeks…Does MBB allow expensing for overtime meals when working from home?
Generalist🐠at MBB: do corp dev roles at FAANG, or operational VC/PE roles, care that you were a “generalist” when exiting? I’ve been approached for data analytics roles at MBB (some specialized), but everyone tells me to go generalist when starting....

MBB or FAANG biz ops?
Many people are willing to take a down level from T2/big4 to MBB but would you be willing to do it for FAANG?
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Does anyone have experience or thoughts on pursuing Georgia Tech’s OMSCS while at MBB? Thinking of taking one course per semester while working.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
How much sales responsibility do EMs,APs/PLs, Ps/Ms,Ps at MBB have? No disrespect, but for instance I just wonder how the 4th YOE from undergrad APs are selling consistently? Or they just deploy work?
I hear transitioning at the M/EM level at MBB & OW is a nightmare. Is it the same for S& and EYP? Curious if it’s just this level where it is hard to switch firms.
What level from industry would you need to join MBB as a Principal/AP vs Partner? Most Partners seem to be VP level from large corporates / CSuite from well known startups

For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
Which MBB pays the best at all levels?
Feeling guilty for taking a 30/45 mins lunch break and finishing the day before 7pm. But I guess I finished my tasks for the day and I can just tackle the rest tomorrow. Is that acceptable. I feel like I lost track of when to stop since WFH

what are ACD and CD salaries at BBDO and other Nyc agencies? Having trouble getting a raise inside my agency and other agencies are offering way more. Don’t wanna leave my agency if possible
26M. Anybody in San Jose wanna chat?
I was contacted by an amazon recruiter for a position that they described as "leader of a business division (I.e. Hard-line business) They mentioned that I would have people reporting to me. From this I assume it could be a L7 PM. Any ideas if I am guessing right? I asked for the level but I got told that it is confidential. Any idea of the salary range? It seems to vary a lot for L7....

Does anyone know if MBB (Toronto) is hiring a lot these days? Currently working at big 4 (manager) with no case interview experience/ no mba … thinking it would at least take me 2-3 months to prep and network. Would trying to get in by Jan be too late? Also, my spouse is thinking of potentially moving to the states next year. Do you know if US MBB helps new hire with their H1B visa? (Understand it may be difficult but want to check if it’s worth trying)
Do first years get any sort of raise?
Anyone else tired of the assumption that because you’re a partner you have to think a certain way and believe certain things. I’m talking about wokeness, work from home, and the recent ever constant pushing of the needle to the left or risk getting “cancelled”. I’m fairly liberal politically so for me to be saying this I think may say something for the current climate. I should be able to hold and express my own opinions without being quashed because I’m not “woke” enough.
I’m trying to raise seed funding for my startup. 1M raise. Bootstrapped to date. We have market traction and revenue We don’t have any contacts/connections in the VC world. Any suggestions on how to connect with VCs? Cold emailing hasn’t really worked for us.
For those who have interviewed in the virtual environment - do you wear full suits? Or more casual?
