How does experienced hire interview process for MBB differ from on campus MBA process? I made final rounds of on campus but made silly mistakes with math. Are cases any easier out of school?
Has MBB lowered their standards? Maybe it’s my time.
People at strategy shops (e.g., LEK, MBB): any precedent of people making a lateral move from other firms after 2-3 years? High performer but dealing with post-merger internal issues.
How is the financial services consulting different across MBB? In terms of service offerings, areas of focus, culture
Do MBB care if a candidate wants to switch jobs a few months after landing the most recent one? Having legit fit issues and would like to switch sooner than later.. Does Bain hire lateral candidates with just over a year of experience? What about the other two?
Everyone keeps talking about regretting not being a SWE at FAANG and earning 250k+ straight away. If you aren’t at MBB, there is a very good chance you would also have not got into FAANG
Anyone from MBB open to having a conversation with me? I’m a part-time MBA candidate and would like to get some advice on how to distinguish myself from my peers
MBB interview process is on hold but want to keep case prep fresh. How often is case study prep recommended each week to keep it fresh?
Anyone work at Wood Mackenzie in their consulting arm. Only have 50-60 people in US, but growing and have ex-MBB folks. Not much info available outside because of the small size
MBB 🐠 a few questions: 1) do you also often have these budget problem discussions at the client not being able to fund the next stage or do they know it‘s gonna be expensive? 2) do engagement consultants do BD in between projects or is it a dedicated acquisition team? 3) how much time do you spend on internal initiatives (and if that depends on the rank)?

I would honestly pay fishbowl money if they would let me filter out all these dumb MBB(other firm) posts going on today
What is the best way to learn about different roles in FAANG? I was a MBB consultant in India. I am in the US now with a AI products company. I work well on the intersection of technology and business. I have conceptualised and deployed multiple enterprise products over the last 2 years. I am looking to move to a bigger organization now. However I don't want to get into corporate strategy roles. What are some other roles that could be a good fit for me?
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Programs with full rides? 3.9 undergrad at Wharton, already at mbb, 780 gmat. Would like to go to bschool unsponsored on scholarship. Are there strong programs that offer full rides?
Is it common that big 4 firms will hold you back for a year if you come from a non-big 4 firm? Do you think it’s worth the change if they do that?
I feel like there is an easier way to do this on line learning. Same grade teachers at the same school should be one big group. For example: One teacher has the discussion or lecture and does the presentation to all classrooms. One teacher mans the computer to answer questions that come in and handles any tech issues. Another teacher grades assignment and takes role and handles the admin part. Wouldn’t this be easier? Teachers could rotate or just stay in one role.
Has anyone taken the sphr exam?
