OP, just because you happen to work for an accounting firm doesn't mean most consulting firms have core businesses outside of the consulting services they provide
Unless you wanna explain otherwise, I can only assume you're a bit thick. Sorry bro 😪

Literally not comparable. MBB is also called Big 3, as in the top/big traditional management consulting firms. The Big 4 is for the top/big accounting firms.

Therefore, MBB’s non consulting practices can not be compared to Big 4’s non consulting practices - the former can’t matchup up to the latter’s accounting or risk business, just like how the latter can’t match the former’s in management consulting

Non consulting as in—? Human Resources, corporate support, etc?

MBB Interviewers: I know the bar & I’m not there. Would it be terrible to tell those who’ve offered to refer me (lateral hire) that I’d want to wait until 2021 to interview? Friends say I’m crazy & that they don’t see any lateral hiring in Jan-March, but my understanding was most MBBs hire year round (pre-MBA). The thought of waiting another year to re-apply is scary. Please help!

After 6 years in Consulting (MBB), manager level, a newborn and my wife at home: Option A) dream location, pay 90k MBA debt out of pocket, get unemployment benefits (120K p.y over 1,5 years) + do some freelance work (at 1-1.5k/day) + look for a new job . Option B) go back to a geo I hate, get 120K salary (but 60% cost of living vs option A), and 90K MBA paid over 2 years, and career progression (not sure I want to do consulting for the long term). Thoughts?

If you’re frustrated about 💰 and career, maybe from FAANG/MBB/PE TC posts, just remember that 99% of life is still pretty much the same for everyone. You eat at the same restaurants, poop on the same toilets, live in similar neighborhoods, wear the same Patagonias, fly in the same metal cans ✈️, and maybe even drive similar cars whether your TC is 100k, 200k or 400k. There’s no use in earning tons more money than you actually need, and the “rich” life is still far away for those earning $1M
