What’s better: Long-term career at MBB or Private Equity, considering hours, pay, interesting work,..?
MBB folks: I have a niche skill set (Wargaming) and I was curious if any of your firms do this type of work? While strategic, I'm curious as to whether or not it is too narrow to work at MBB...ctd
With over 15 yrs marketing, tech and ops consulting in agencies, tech and startups, is it worth even considering roles in MBB or similar? Any advice is welcome. Deciding on staying independent or not
Coming from tech implementation consulting within federal, is it easier at all to get an interview for the federal practice at MBB? I’m aware of what MBB does in the federal space and it’s not far fetched from what the other firms do!
No interest in IB/MBB/PE/VC but I love learning and school, and would love to learn from some of the best professors as one day I want to teach as well. Getting M15 MBA still justifiable?

MBB folks strictly on strategy consulting ...do you folks have project managers/utilize Ms project plans?
Seeking general career advice - I am an MBA grad one year in at a B4, doing mostly implementation work. I don’t particularly enjoy it and am realizing more by the day that my interest lies in strategy. I’m contemplating between switching to a more strategic practice internally (although I hear it’s not easy), trying to interview for an MBB firm, or looking at internal consulting roles. I have a lot of questions that I ponder about (which I’ll post in the comments) but I’d appreciate any advice!
Any MBB fish focused in marketing or digital strategy willing to connect and share what their experience has been like?
If I exit to MBB around the 1.5 YOE mark, will I reset to entry level? Want to switch over but I’m not sure if I should wait for my promotion (coming at 2 YOE) so that I don’t lose title progress.
