How much in-depth excel modeling does a typical associate at MBB do?

Not a ton. You need to be able to do it, and will likely have 2-3 studies minimum where you have to do some excel work, but generally we aren’t exactly quants.

That’s helpful, thanks!

Baseline expectation is minimal. I’ve noticed leadership is more interested in the insights you can drive using data, regardless of who built the model. That said, you will build a model at some point, but you will also have support and coaching as you do it.

What is the typical lag time between start date and offer at MBB as an experienced hire? I was told to expect a start date in a year during off cycle recruiting. Is this normal?

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

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.

McKinsey has pretty traditionally been considered the best of MBB, followed by BCG, then Bain. Given all the scandals its dealt with this past few years do you think its standing within MBB will drop? I think its too big to fall out of the group but I definitely am leaning towards BCG being the new preferred/top option for people trying to break in to consulting.
