Question - are junior partners at consulting firms “middle managers”? Where do you draw the line at MBB, S& and Deloitte?
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
What grade (GS) level do MBB consultants gun for after 1-5 years when exiting into government?
Generalist🐠at MBB: do corp dev roles at FAANG, or operational VC/PE roles, care that you were a “generalist” when exiting? I’ve been approached for data analytics roles at MBB (some specialized), but everyone tells me to go generalist when starting....
Partners, what would be a typical monthly pension check be for MBB / Big 4? All firms welcome.
Hi 🐟 ! I'm a senior in undergrad that interviewed through final rounds with a few mbb/tier 2 consulting firms recruiting from my school. The recruiting process didn't go too well for me overall and
I haven’t even finished the final round with the company and they are asking my passport for visa purpose already…why do rush? (Not in the states) Also I am in the process with mbb.
How difficult to switch from big4 digital groups to MBB? Is the work significantly different?
I accepted an offer at Deloitte and start in three weeks. I am also in processes at another Big 4 and MBB. If I get substantial better offers from them, would it be crazy to leave D after a couple months? Start dates for other potential offers are Jan 3.
MBB manager vs FAANG product: pros and cons? I was excited about the perks in consulting but with all of them gone (and likely we’ll never go back to the glamorous lifestyle fully), product roles that I earlier said no to seem lucrative.
When's the best time post-undergrad to apply from another consulting firm? I'm approaching one year at a T2 after a handful of unsuccessful final rounds across MBB during recruiting. Does it make sense to wait for 2 YOE? Is applying noe best? etc.
How hard is it to switch around different practice areas in MBB? And what if you start off in a more specialized role?
So is Deloitte becoming Accenture+ from MBB--? The recent moves and op model changes emphasize implementation and operate service
Hey MBB Fishes! I have an offer to shift from a M (5 YoE, no MBA) position to a Consultant position at BCG - does anyone have any insight into expected change in responsibilities and salary range I should be pushing for?
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?
When you have used a recruiter for another job, did they negotiate salary for you? If so, were you happy with what you got?
Help evaluating an offer: 1 YOE out of undergrad in T2 consulting, new offer is ~125-140 base, 15-25% bonus, 1 time signing bonus. Should I be negotiating for more or is this fair? HCOL city.
Let's talk client side. AKA the Dark Side. What titles and roles does a creative slot into naturally? You know without having to go back to business school and all.
Im a CPA with 2 years of tax experience at pwc (promised promotion in Jan with 5k bonus) I currently make 63k a year after bonuses but I’m looking to transition to a smaller firm and get hired on as a senior ASAP.

Preparing for product manager interview for FAANG. Any good resources you recommend? Is there a bowl for product management?
Got laid off from PA, picked up a temp role in fund accounting, hated the work and quit, got a role for 10k higher in internal audit and love it so far. The one thing I've learned from all of this is
Shout out the white woman who literally went from a casual stroll to a frantic sprint when she saw me exit my car and walk towards the same client site entrance ✌🏾 lol.
I’ve gotten an RFE sheet request for my H1-B petition. Does this hamper my chances of getting the visa ? Because my degree is directly related to my role and is also clearly mentioned in the job description. So I’m not sure why I’ve gotten this. Anyone have experience with the same ?
Does anyone know anyone involved in the Amazon-Berkshire-JPMorgan mega healthcare company that I could speak to about? It sounds like a dream company for me
My students eventually get bored and restless when it comes to a classroom routine esp towards the end of the year. How can I keep things interesting but also consistent?
What kind of interview questions does a recruiter ask vs a creative director? What’s the biggest difference? Just got into the industry so need a bit of help prepping for interviews, thanks!
Hi! I am asking for a friend in tax - “I’ve been in the AWM tax practice for 7 years (4.5 yrs at pwc and 2.5 at private) and am looking to switch to EY’s national tax team (passthrough group).
