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.
Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
With so many people reportedly leaving consulting, I’m wondering how common is it to leave for less TC? MBB comp $200k+ at 27. Do most people get increases above that or just go to jobs sitting at $150k but that “have better WLB”? *Not looking to include those that switch to industries with intentional disregard about comp (eg public sector, charity, teaching etc).
Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...
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?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
What’s OW’s reputation? Kind of like MBB? Please no Deloitte Harvard jokes, tks we suck I know
STARTUP FOUNDERS and FAANG: would you rather hire MBB with 3-4 years of exp or Tier 2 with 5-6 years? If you could isolate those variables and everything else held constant.
New Manager at Big4 EA to MBB associate. 50% hike in pay and generally better work, culture, brand. Should I be bothered with the title demotion and loss of network or just count my blessings?
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
Interested in consulting at MBB. Is connecting with recruiters via LinkedIn and reaching out about potential positions something I should do?
Any experienced folks out there make the move from B4 management consulting to MBB with no MBA? Currently an M at B4 but considering the possibility of a move in the near future. Would love to hear your experience.
How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?
To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)
Have a interview with LinkedIn for Startegic Ops Manager. There internal consulting group. Has anyone interviewed with them? Do they give MBB level cases for the interview?
My 3yr old daughter was playing with 2 different sized crayons yesterday. The bigger one was mom and the smaller one baby! The imaginitive conversations that followed were the best entertainment ever!

Any tech interview prep services you recommend? Is there a Case in Point book for bizops? I landed a FAANG bizops interview and might invest $$ to avoid blowing this opportunity.

Turned in my 2 wks. EM asked me to stay for another week bc manager will be on parental leave around the same time (and sounds like EM is pressuring him as well). Should I consider at all?? Felt a bit guilty to leave the pressure on the manager…

Recommendations for a therapist in India. My father who has had considerable trauma in life has finally agreed to see a therapist but we don’t know where to start looking for one. It has taken lots of convincing to get him to agree so I want to make sure he has a good experience.
Would appreciate it if someone can give me information on Strategy&’s FI practice. Currently a PL at BCG. I was just offered a Director position at Strategy& with more than double my current salary. Wondering whether if it makes sense to make the jump.
Solid background and thinking of a dual MBA/MS degree at H/S. Class of ‘19 — worth applying R2 or wait a year? Didn’t get in the H/S deferral program in 2019 and heard this year is quite competitive.
