How’s everyone’s firms doing?
I’m currently at a FAANG and I’m kinda bored. I know most of you are going the other way around but I kinda miss being able to work on stuff that has an impact and the rush of consulting. Can anyone at MBB tell me how it is for technical work especially Quantum Black? I feel like MBB has cool clients I can do Data Analysis for.
Would it be possible for an SM/EM/PL in MBB PEG/PIPE practice to move to PE or growth equity at the VP level?
Does MBB sponsor (time, stipend) PhD programs?
Is it possible to join MBB as Technical Manager or Consultant without having MBA? If yes, what would be the best way to apply for a position? Please guide
Would love to hear about anyones experience working at MBB or Google? Thinking applying soon want to gauge some ideas. (Currently in a tech role but it’s just training after training, don’t really feel like I’m bringing value or learning)
MBB experienced hires with no prior consulting experience: how was your experience as a new joiner?
Aside from B4, MBB, FAANG what other companies still sponsoring given this environment? Girlfriend is international and has T20 legal/business education, international legal/MBB/VC experience. Cont.
I’ve noticed for tech companies. The difference between T2 and MBB is marginal, the process is meritocratic and fit-based that gets you the job. The brand only makes a difference for getting into buyside processes. So wondering if it’s worth taking a BCG offer, vs. Recruiting directly for FAANG.
Got laid off due to COVID. Pretty distressed and worried. I rarely ask for help but would appreciate referrals for Consulting roles at MBB/Tier2 or Strategy/PM at big tech. Promise to pay it forward.
I've worked as a management consultant for 5 years. Have experience in high tech, health care, retail, auto among others. Love leading & working across cross functional teams. MBA.
Happy to send my resume over.
Thank you very much 🙏
Moving Tier 2->MBB, seems no brainer to me, but would that hurt my MBA admission chances at top schools? ie from being good in tier 2/big four consulting pool to being nobody in MBB applicant pool.
Is it worth going to a top MBA program and switching from IBM/Accn/Big 4 to MBB for the brand/stamp (internship)? Will it help with post-MBA PE/VC full-time options?
🐠 fam - how’s FAANG sr prod manager screening different than consulting manager role with MBB? Anything out of the usual? Have an interview coming up soon and help will be great!
I have an engineering background, graduated last December, and accepted MBB over FAANG (product design & manufacturing engineering offers) . This bowl’s focus on exiting consulting into FAANG (cont)
Anyone have success cold applying for VC roles and not in MBB? Just submitted an app last week and they should be reaching out this week, but I’m not sure how long to wait before giving up…

As a young undergraduate from a tier 1 college, how do I break into in the strategy consulting arms of big 4 or MBB. I am keen to work in the front end office rather than the capability centers.

Does anyone have recommendations on an approach to get frequent feedback on employee sentiment across your teams?
I lead a global team of ~70 and growing. Most of the team is deployed to major company initiatives and pressure is high. We do big annual employee surveys, but I'm looking for good ways to get more regular feedback at scale.
How do you respond to a verbal job offer you've been dying for? Do you say you'll think about it? Show your excitement? Or is it bad to look too excited? Do you say thanks pageantry style? Lol I know it's a weird question but I'm a noob and I've never had a verbal offer before.

My fiancée almost lost her life to a medical emergency. The doctor needed me to stay home 2 weeks to supervise her post-operative care once the hospital discharged her. We had nobody near that could help so I got permission to attend class remotely for 2 weeks from the dean and all professors. One professor removed me from a graded argument the week after I’d return. When I asked about this error, he had said “I had planned on your failure to appear” and that he preplanned giving me a 0 grade.

You can check the price of ETH gas via this link;
This is useful when using a site like Etherdelta, as too low of a gas price can cause delays. But a lower safe gas price = faster transactions 👌🏻

This is exactly why no agricultural reforms took place in the last 50 years. It was political hara kiri to do anything meaningful. You incentivize farmers in two states to grow rice and wheat with zero linkage to market demand. Then buy it up at above market prices and store it in godowns where it rots for decades because no there’s demand for those amounts. Farmers keep flooding their lands using free electricity to grow rice and causing a slow motion ecological disaster to the water table

At a macro level from what I hear, things are not as bad as people thought, but of course far worse than “usual”. It’s practically impossible to predict if the worst is behind us or not, but trends are more positive (economically speaking).
I’d also say, take all news with a grain of salt; because you as an individual is subject to different forces than a firm which is risk diversified in a lot of ways. A lot of us and our friends aren’t out of the woods yet, at least how I see it.
It’s a really hard question to answer, because it varies per person, company, sector etc etc, so I can’t really tell you what everyone imagined in detail, just that the sentiment consistently has been whatever doomsday scenario people had, it wasn’t that bad.
To your second point, yep that’s what I meant by firms are diversified people are not. In general there are pockets of positivity here and there along with generally stable businesses which is offsetting some stress.
The actions of firms should be a good barometer on the kind of shape they are in. For example, how much were start dates pushed? Did they give a stipend for a delayed start date? Did they keep an remote internship program going? Have they forced PTO?
Based on this criteria, it is clear in the United States the hardest hit are the mid sized firms who don't have the backing of a Big 4. LEK forced furlough and canceled internship program (with full time offers), Kearney pushing start dates 6 months with no stipend (apparently they got health care though) and OW with canceled internship and start dates pushed up to 6 months with no stipend.
AP1, yea the two cases I know starting on time at ATK are internationals so that could be it. Thanks
Not ideal (obviously) but it’s not as bad as we thought it would be, at least not yet.
Promotions are still on track, likely reduced bonuses and no profit-sharing this year.
My hypothesis is a 20% reduction in the size of the consulting market in 2020. Does that fit with your expectations?
