2 YOE at a T2 strategy firm. Would jumping to a MBB boost M7 MBA apps two years down the road? Has anyone does and if yes, what was your story?
I feel like such a Noob. I’ve been doing Salesforce implementation consulting for 5 years and now realizing this whole other ball park with Strategy consulting at places like MBB. Is it worth it to apply for MBB and try to change my consulting career or just continue to specialize in my Salesforce consulting career?
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)..
If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐

Are the MBB NYC offices the worst in terms of WLB and culture? I’d imagine there’s much more competition and cutthroat nature there

What are the odds to land an offer in round2 (% of offers) at MBB, specially Bain right now? I’m curious
Is it just me or do I feel that brand-level consulting (e.g., product strategy) is more interesting, on balance, than management consulting? But it seems like the market rates for these kind of projects are lower than MC projects. Does MBB play in this product strategy space, or is it mostly other boutiques and ZS/LEK? Like is there a consistent competitor set we’re bidding against?
@MBB folks: Engagement manager at OW (US) with no MBA. I am considering shifting to MBB and moving to SoCal (ideally LA). Could a move like that work or need an MBA?
MBB 🐠, are you pressured to get dinners with your case team or do most people do their own thing after leaving the office.
I’ve been working in cyber risk in the federal sector for a few years and I’m finding I enjoy “advise” projects much more than operate/implement (I’m guessing on the implement piece since I’ve done pursuits for it and seen the technical sections, but I haven’t done the work). If I wanted to pivot into a strategy firm and stay federal (or government in general), what firms would be ideal? I’m not basing it off prestige (MBB vs non MBB).
Has anyone here (MBB or similar hours) ever attempted to do a masters part-time? I feel like it’s out of reach for me unless I stop working or switch jobs, but would love to hear other perspectives.

I know that feedback culture is part and parcel of consulting, and I feel it is contributing to my anxiety and depression. At the same time, i enjoy the problem solving aspects and don’t want to do a career change. Anyone having the same problem? What have you done to help yourself cope with the culture?

Just moved here after taking what I thought was a decent raise to come - oh my god how do you afford to live here? I’m from downtown Chicago and that’s not cheap - but these taxes, rent prices, car insurance, gas 🤯🤯🤯
Does anyone have any experience with the United Chase Explorer card? Does the free checked bag apply to international flights (specifically to Europe)? If I book basic economy, would I still get that checked bag + a carry on? How does seat selection work on basic? What priority boarding group is associated with this card? I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?

CONSULTING TO INDUSTRY : LOWERING THE BAR?
