How many years should you put in at MBB before trying to switch to FAANG? ~9 months in and would love to switch as soon as possible, but don’t want to be seen as leaving too early

FAANG companies don’t care how long you’ve stayed at a particular company, if that’s your concern.

They don’t really care the hours you have worked. They care about the impact and your fit for the role. So you may be overselling this consulting hours thing. I was there and thankfully had worked with cloud tech.

2-3 years is prob optimal, but 1-1.5 is fine if you really want to leave

Same situation. I just want to get a promotion before switching so they don’t think that I leave because I am not good. Is it a bad mentality?

Yes, if you want to leave, just leave. Recruiters don’t care/know the pace of promotions in consulting. I’ve seen people passed up for promotions 2x and never got promoted for their 3 years in consulting get the exact same role at FAANG as an SC who switched with the same YOE. I see industry typically cares more about YOE rather than title for placement/leveling. I will say you’re a more attractive recruit after 2-3 years though rather than 1.

Hello everyone! Nice to meet you all. I have 6 years of experience across Deloitte & EY and currently studying for the GMAT. Targeting R2 LBS and R1 INSEAD (I’m based in London :) ). I’m currently 30 but very motivated to make a switch to MBB post business school. Should I be worried about my age? Do MBBs prefer younger candidates? More on my experience - working within the Consulting practice at D, doing Tech Transformation work. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all :)

How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!
