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!
I’m a 2nd year analyst wanting to jump into Product Management. It seems most of the product management positions require a minimum of 3+ YOE in a “similar role.” Has anyone had experience leaving consulting for a product management role? Welcoming other tips and advice too.
Want to move agencies for a mid position, not at the best shop right now but had an internship at one of the top shops in my country. Should I list that agency first on the CV? Or is that pushing it?
lateral move: any media folk seen the light and left agency for sales role. Was it good decision regret?
What’s the obsession with FAANG? I get that it sounds sexy but feels like consulting is an odd jumping off point. Super bored of “Been at Big 4 for 3 months, how do I exit to FAANG” posts.
CMV: The era of traveling consultants is over. Yes, life will go back to normal and travel will be safe again, but not until enough time/experience has passed for consulting firms and clients to realize the weekly on-site travel is unnecessary. Limited travel will still exist and maybe more at senior levels. Regional/local travel will be the norm. Consulting will remain a popular career starter for exit opps and continued high pay, but not for travel/expense perks.
Has anyone made the move to Uber, specifically the operations and logistics manager position? Received and offer with less salary (but decent equity) and trying to weigh options and lifestyle.
To those from MBB in Canada. Do any of your firms have sizeable Vancouver offices with Partners in BC?
Cold calling agencies. Is it weird to google/LinkedIn a specific person (HOP, say) and dial by name, directly call them? Agencies are massive and receptionists (if there is one) won’t direct you to a role. They want a name. For freelancers trying to network, this seems to be the only way in if you have no contacts there. Any thoughts or advice appreciated.

I’m an Inclusion Teacher in an elementary school. My role is to support special education students in the general education classroom. I’m struggling how to provide the service due to social distancing protocols. In the past I could sit next to the students or bring them to a back table to work on skills. With the extra furniture in the room removed, this won’t be possible. I will also have students working remotely from home at the same time. Any suggestions or ideas?
I would honestly pay fishbowl money if they would let me filter out all these dumb MBB(other firm) posts going on today
Anyone interviewed at Facebook for any Analytics role or position? Any insight on technical/analytical interviews or in general any advice on how to prep for the interviews? Any help is welcomed
What is the best way to learn about different roles in FAANG? I was a MBB consultant in India. I am in the US now with a AI products company. I work well on the intersection of technology and business. I have conceptualised and deployed multiple enterprise products over the last 2 years. I am looking to move to a bigger organization now. However I don't want to get into corporate strategy roles. What are some other roles that could be a good fit for me?
What kind of training do MBB folks go through as a new hire? What kind of on-demand courses do you have access to for continued learning?
Is it common to switch from one MBB to other? Feeling kind of let down by the work I’m doing currently.
For those who exit to industry, do you find recruiters lowball? They often quote a salary based on YOE and their standard pay - often lower because their salary progression is slower. 4YOE at consulting you make $120k~$150k but they quote $100k because that’s how they pay their homegrown analysts. Nobody thus far thinks 4y at consulting is worth 5-6 YOE, I’ve even met someone who only match me to their 2-3 YOE analyst because they think their program is more prestigious and want to hold me back.

All clients need to explain conference call etiquette when WFH to their employees. So far I’ve heard people washing dishes, talking to their spouse and kids, making lunch, and playing with pets...
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
So this new well being rewards program.....exactly how do you earn points that will actually add up to anything close to what the previous program offered?
Hi I have a real question that is going to cause a lot of controversy but it gets me so upset every time this happens. In casting and director searching, the request is always “non-white and female if possible”. It’s like I get more ‘brownie points’ for the most diverse person I can find. I don’t remember the last time I posted a casting request and was allowed to ask for white applicants. Isn’t this reverse discrimination? This can’t be the answer to equality. Am I crazy or unfair??
Anyone else wake up some days and think, "how did I end up here?" I'm so thankful for our salaries and benefits, but being in finance really takes its toll sometimes
