What are tips for moving as an experienced hire from non-MBB to MBB? Heard M does not really hire off cycle for traditional consulting...
MBB 🐠: I’ve got 3yrs consulting experience at IBM (agile exp.), state school for undergrad, CSM and secret clearance. Do I have a shot at associate at MBB or do I absolutely need to pursue MBA first?
Thoughts on Kearney compared to MBB?
How much does it slow down (or speed up) your career if you chose to be a generalist i.e. not specialize in any one area. Do MBB still hire general consultants or is focus squarely on experience?
Is there an unstated GMAT cutoff for MBA internship interviews with MBB? And if so, what is this range?
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
Just started from undergrad (target if that matters) at a T2, seeing as MBB is raising base salaries, I’m now I’m more motivated to lateral. How many months do I need at my current firm before I can be considered a for a lateral? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
MBB energy practice in Houston: (1) how busy are you (2) how big is the practice (3) what kind of projects do you typically work on (4) are you hiring?
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.

I'm a senior at a non-target ivy just got an advisory return offer at big 4. How do I initiate conversation with MBB for full time if they don't come to campus/I don't have personal connection
Salary in interview. I was asked about my salary in an interview at MBB. Say I was currently receiving 70k fixed + 22k bonus. I told them "my salary is 100K including bonus". Can this little round off hurt later? The interviewer was basically asking me how much I am expecting and I told him industry standards. Kept pursuing it. In end he said just give me sense of your current salary and so I rounded off.
Have tier 2 M&A strategy offers on the table and interested in exploring MBB. Any fish willing to chat??

Opinions on the future of Bird / scooter companies? Considering moving to an Ops role there
Anyone watching Indian Matchmaking? Aparna and her mother have to be the worst, right? She thinks she's a godsend and quite frankly she looks like a potato, is ignorant, doesn't sound nearly as intelligent as she professes to be, and is even more negative than I am! That's gotta say something.
I am a developer and one of my performance metrics is "Utilization" (billable hours). I am finding it hard to meet this goal (get enough work from my project team), accomplish all my admin tasks, and take vacation/holidays. Any advice?

I think it might be stressing my wife out, but there’s not much in life that I want anymore. I have everything I need. The only thing I wanted for Father’s Day is to stay in bed for an hour with a cup of coffee.
Anybody took a job that turned out to be wrong fit? How did you bounce back and how to handle if it comes up in interviews? I hesitate to say “I wanted to do this at the time then changed my mind / it wasn’t a good fit”
IBM folks - how is the interview process evaluated based on cognitive assessment that I was asked to take before the process starts? I mean does it decides whether they will interview me or not? I have 9 yrs of experience.

Not so fun one: drank too much at the holiday party and feel like a total idiot. Nothing happened but still, lesson learned. Any advice on how to recover?
What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry! It's going to be impossible soon!!" is driving me insane. Ideally I would want it to be planned and natural, not IVF or anything, but you never know.
