How is the risk practice at MBB? Do you work on the same work as big 4 risk? Where do most people come from.. ie ex big 4, internally trained, ex bankers etc. What would help a candidate from a big 4 risk transition to a position in risk at mbb? I'm going to be entering a big 4 in risk, but would like to switch to mbb at some point in my life.

In Risk Practice, we serve clients on technical stuffs like model development/validation as well as strategy/non-financial risk. Never worked at big4 but I guess the scope is broader here. For financial risk, maybe OW is the closest one.

I’ve seen a few former IB folks from more risk-oriented product groups (e.g. securitized products group)

Big-4 risk is entirely different than MBB risk. Big-4 is essentially tech focused accounting without a CPA. At MBB it is about financial and business risk. An MBA would be the best path as the skills in big-4 risk aren't really transferable beyond IT audit and compliance roles (neither of which MBB work on).

Agree! I have friends working in big4 risk advisory and the work is totally different. Mainly IT/compliance review kind of job. Does Bain have teams doing financial risk analytics/modeling?

I’m curious of everyone’s views on job hopping. I’m on my 3rd job and have ~3 years of sales experience. Each job change has been an increase in comp and has shown clear career progression. At this point I’m working for a well known public company in SaaS, in their SMB segment, which has been great. But I’ve been approached by a smaller startup offering to double my base salary, 2.25x my OTE, and equity for an enterprise rep position. This is very enticing, but would I look like a job hopper?
