How do Big 4 Experienced Hire interviews differ from fresh graduate interviews? Hoping to transition from a boutique firm I joined after college to the Big 4. Interviewed with MBB during school, however, not sure what to expect as an Experienced Hire. YOE 4, Midwest LCOL. Reason: great pay and WLB, but, not challenged and little upwards trajectory.
At a B4 now. I want to stay in consulting. Should I be considering any other firms besides MBB and T2?
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Considering a move to ZS as a tenured direct admit partner. What is the average salary for a Y2/3 Principal at ZSA? FWIW, coming from MBB
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
How would you rank in order of prestige/ease of getting in: UCLA, Cornell, and NYU ?? Looking to transition to MBB if that matters.
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Is it realistic to aim for a move to MBB after 1-2 years of experience at a Tier 2 firm (OW/ATK/RB/S&) in the region? How difficult is it to move from Tier 2 to MBB?
Anyone willing to help with a resume review/edit? I am in advisory consulting and would like to transition to strategy preferably MBB.
Will rerecruiting for MBB (and essentially restarting/grinding case prep and such) when I have a T2 pretty locked in just be indulging an unhealthy obsession with prestige? Struggling with whether or not it’s objectively worth it, as someone who has fallen into “prestige traps” in the past.
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?
Tuck vs Ross ($$) goal is MBB or big tech

Move-up Anyone seen or know anyone that traded-up from one MBB to another MBB? Eg. A BCG PL hired as Principal at Bain; a Principal at Bain hired as Partner at McK; a consultant at McK hired a M etc
Time for a come to Jesus moment... Think about this from a timeline perspective Which B is which in MBB? It's time we do a double click into this What's harder to get into than Harvard? WWG1WGA, but let's not boil the ocean Q

PSA for all you jokers languishing at LGA taxi entrance: Have your driver get off an exit or two earlier and take the city streets to the Marriott LGA where a ped bridge awaits. Can save you 60 min+
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
I’m torn about going up for promotion to director with an infant at home. While I’m professionally ready, I wonder if it’s a bad decision on the home-front. Should I stay in my mgr role or go for it?

Anyone else really pack on the pounds during work from home? I really blew up - probably gained 40-45 pounds. I feel so bloated and sluggish all the time and none of my clothes fit anymore. I hope I’m not alone.
In terms of total comp, who do you think makes more: an EP at an agency or a mid level producer at a FAANG company?
Accenture strategy: How is ADP project experience viewed when decisions are made regarding career progression, bonus, etc.?
Was told I’d only have one round (4 interviews), each split 50/50 on case/behavioral. This is for an Associate position and will be interviewing with AP/P/SP level. Is this typical? Since I see most people have multiple rounds.
What’s our definition of “ghosting” here? For example, I don’t get mad about getting no response to cold emails. But not hearing back after I physically interview (or Skype) will make me furious.

Trying to decide between two portfolio ops roles, both in the Bay Area: Small-ish VC firm, ~135k base + 35k bonus Medium PE firm, ~115k base + 115k bonus Which would you choose? I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world). What do you think?
