LEK🐠, how different is our casework (pack creation / iteration, model approaches, expert interview formats) compared to MBB? If it’s fairly similar, I’d turn down the MBB offer I have to pivot into tech. If MBB gives a new consulting experience, I’d accept. Generalist path. TIA🙌🏼 L.E.K.

Individual from undergrad got an MBB offer and asked what to do to prepare in the time before starting. What do you recommend? Do you recommend something different for MBA's?

Hi there! Am I too late if I want to apply for MBB ops consulting roles as experienced hire? Heard summer recruitment might be starting soon
Has any of the MBB been doing much work in public sector since the onset of pandemic? Would they be willing to hire someone with exclusively public sector experience of +6 years and an MBA from Canada? Asking because during the MBA recruitment, public sector experience was not helpful as MBB didn't focus there a lot.
How do I get MBB good @ PPT? I’m a staff 2 in consulting & have only had long term projects; teams rarely used decks. I know ppt well, so the Q is more directed towards designing pretty slides.
Is moving from MBB to FAANG non tech roles (strategy & ops) worth it? How is the career progression?
Exhausted from the hours I am putting in in IB. Just pulled an all-nighter through Sunday night. Seriously contemplating moving to MBB. Question: How are the Associates and Consultants at MBB doing? What's your hours like? @McKinsey, @BCG, @Bain
Does any of the MBB have a decent-sized life science strategy consulting practice? (In my region, I seem to only see IQVIA LEK ZS getting the projects)
How is the financial services consulting different across MBB? In terms of service offerings, areas of focus, culture
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Settle a debate for my friend and I: does your firm (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4 etc etc) drug test new hires for non-federal roles?
Made it to final rounds for MBB in early 2018 when I was a Consultant at ACN. Feedback was needed to be a little crisper on the case. How long to wait before reapplying?
How much do partners really make at Big 4 and MBB. Let's say the first year being a partner ?
To all fishes that went from T2 to MBB - did you notice a big difference in quality, standards, people worked with, or anything else? Trying to understand why MBB is MBB beyond name-brand and prestige.
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.
Client recently hired a POC as CMO. Is it weird to be excited? I feel like a lot of good ideas died due to bias from the previous CMO. But also don’t wanna assume the new guy is “woke" he’s def smart.
Anyone looking to practice case interviews?I have one in next two weeks and i am looking for people to practice it live with.

I am just starting year 4 as an associate doing 100% med mal defense trial work. I know our insurance guidelines require partners to do a lot with so much $$$ on the line, but in 3+ years, I have only: attended 36 depos (12/yr or 1/mo) of those 36, I: noticed 3 (1/yr) and presented 3 (1/yr) I have attended 1 mediation and tried 1 small claims “trial” I feel like I am losing my attorney skills, rather than improving them. Can I expect more opportunities or do I need to make a switch?
Can someone explain why should a health system largely FFS still would want to invest in preventative care /outcomes?
@PwC is there a WBS code to book time for IT issues? I bet the numbers are scary to leadership and could easily justify getting everyone a better machine e.g. MacBooks than those inferior Dells/HP
Is the timing to obtain a Green Card mostly dependent on the applying firm or the USCIS? How long? Thinking of making a dash to get it before I possibly get kicked out (I'm an L1 from 🇬🇧)

When your COVID-19 bonus comes through
I have over $1k in United vouchers that will expire at the end of the year. Platinum Elite. Worth calling to see if I can get expirations extended? Gonna be hard to travel at all this year..
Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?
Anyone know what the promotion bonus is when you make manager in EY Tax? Not talking PBB, just bonus purely related to promotion. Thanks.
I’m turning down a higher role with higher pay (12% higher) solely because the HR team has been extremely unhelpful throughout the decision making process. From not getting responses for weeks, to consistently receiving “I don’t know, let me follow up” then not receiving follow ups, and everything in between. All of the interviews leading up to the offer was great, but then red flags started popping up making me feel very uneasy joining this company. Have you ever denied an offer because of HR??
Know you travel too much when you can judge the status of the SPG integration by the now matching granola in Marriott and SPG.
