My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
I recently received two offers: (1) Deloitte (S&O); and Accenture (Technology Consulting). Which would be more aligned to MBB/FAANG?
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
Exiting T2 to a role in F100 with roughly equally comp. A lot of my peers are in the process with MBB. I can’t help but feel like I should have gone that way for a quick brand boost before jumping to industry 🤷♂️ Thoughts?
MBB 🐟 - can you describe the moment when reality did not meet your excitement/expectations you had before starting the job?
MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
Recently had an MBB final round with my top choice firm. Kinda messed up by making silly mistakes I do not usually make. Having interviews with the other MBBs coming up, and having practiced as much as I could, advice for not letting this get to my head and finding the motivation and confidence to keep pushing ?
Objectively attractive female here. MBA educated. Former model. Accepting bf applications from MBB. Serious applicants only 😘
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 should one keep in mind while considering Product Maketing roles at Google? Is that a good exit? What do people do after a few years in product marketing? Thinking of making a transition to Tech from MBB.
Do people take a pay cut when moving from MBB to tech? Current TC - MBB manager 290k (220 base) Offer - 170k base + 15% bonus + 300k RSUs
MBB folks can you give us some insight into your "upward" performance management feedback system?

Had a minor back injury (should heal on its own) but I don’t think sitting in an office chair all day is helping. Any ideas to make it more bearable?

Would you take a job at a start up that will be paying you $7k less than your current salary if the job was in a space you want to be in?
I’m wondering whether and how other firms credit time spent by associates on business development for purposes of meeting the annual billable hours target. Is such time fully credited?
Project might be changing to travel every other week. Super unproductive and stir crazy when I work from home.
If you exceed your billable hours Monday through Thursday and don’t have much work to do on Friday, is it okay to leave early?
Accenture vs PwC comparison (Development, Comp, Exit Ops, etc.) - would love to see firm in title to reveal any potential bias, even if you’re being objective. Thanks!
I changed companies 6 months ago. I hate it here. If i start looking for another job does it look bad for new companies i'm applying to? I currently manage a department
Had an interview Monday. Manager at the end said he was going to talk to HR to bring me in again to meet more of the time. Emailed thank you right after. Haven't heard anything. Should I reach out?
I have an interview scheduled for this Friday and I don’t think I’ll be ready or have enough time to prepare. I just checked my email and realized how much work I have to get done and it’s looking like I’ll be working a lot of hours this week so I won’t have much time to prepare for my case or technical interview. Should I email the hiring team and ask to reschedule or just not sleep this week so I can fully prepare?
I wish we had the culture of afternoon siesta... my productivity is so low from 2-4pm 😪😴
Consulting work life balance is simply taking a toll on me! Is it true that industry jobs have more work life balance than a big 4 consulting? I like my work but I am working for long crazy hours and also over the weekends (pay isn’t justified at the same time)
