Honestly I feel like it’s super group dependent. I’ve heard TSE’s WLB for example is great, but the WLB in the CDD practice is 🗑

In terms of positioning vs competitors - particularly strategy focused firms like MBB, could our leading Operational expertise can be coupled with the strategy practice to differentiate us?...

Hey guys, I just found this group and I’m hoping for some guidance/advice! I’m hoping to get into one of the Big 4s or MBB and finally got a few referrals once joining FB. I am 29, have an MA in IOP, and 10 YEO. I have never worked for a non-Jewish company (despite trying pretty damn hard to get out) and I’m freaking out. I have no concept of normal professionalism, strategy for navigating the workplace and the real world in corporate USA,(cont. in comment)

FAANG Exit to MBB? 3.5 YOE, Non-technical, 150k TC Been at Alphabet my entire career post-undergrad. Managed to move from Google to a well-respected Bet where I’m very happy. Undergrad was a pretty general liberal arts degree and haven’t pursued grad school yet. What would it look like (from a TC + long term career standpoint) to switch over to MBB for a year or two then go back to FAANG?

Can investment bankers answer this question: do people always choose bulge bracket (GS, Citi, ML etc) over boutique investment banks (Moelis, Houlihan Lokey etc)?

Can the same happen in the future in consulting?

Starting as ASC/C at MBB soon and have zero clothes to wear in-office/client (coming from advanced degree where I wear shorts 24/7). I'm wide AF (5'9 220) from lifting and built like a rectangle. If you had to rebuild your entire business casual wardrobe from scratch for a non-slim build, where would you go? MTM or off the rack + tailor (in house or external)? Tried some charles tyrwhitt shirts but I'm all over their size chart so they would take a ton of work to fix.

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
