Why does everyone want in to MBB so badly? Higher comp, prestige, better exit opportunities and less WLB? Genuinely curious because first year person here and I don't know
MBB manager in Life Sciences: struggling to find a good exit. VC/PE - feels like consulting toolkit not really useful, and I’m competing with analysts. Big pharma - in my country too pharmaco not hiring consultants. Startups - don’t sponsor visa. Feels stuck! Any ideas/advice?
Who has transitioned from MBB to Private Equity? What is the pay difference and would you do it again?
Highest signing bonus at senior consultant level in consulting? Curious what MBB offers?
Exist opportunities from big 4 vs middle market- is big 4 really better in the long run?

M7 Applicant Chances Black Female - 670 GMAT, 3.8 GPA from liberal arts university, 2.5 YOE B4 audit and 2.5 YOE B4 consulting (1.5 of that focused on intl development work) ECs - 2 years leading probono work for an accelerator, 1.5 years mentoring high schoolers in entrepreneurship, 1.5 years distributing produce to low income families MBA interest - social impact/ social entrepreneurship/ impact investing
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Does MBB, Strategy&, LEK, ATK etc allow rotational programs in different countries (London, UK, etc)? How competitive are those rotations to get into?
Currently make 75k in a low cost of living area as a government employee. Big 4 tax background with 5 years experience. Currently working in regulation. I have an opportunity to move back into tax but the catch is it’s in San Francisco. Offer is 130k with a target 10% bonus and 5% pension contribution. Based on my pay and what my spouse could make in SF the pay differential would be a slight decrease based on COL. I’m not seeing a bright future in my government career due to continual budget...
Can you shed some light on MBB recruitment? You got to events, shake some hands and then what? Do you need multiple people to back your candidacy at each firm? Will they invite you to “unofficial” events if they like you? Not really sure how much effort this requires
Out of curiosity- are MBB and Big 4 sold out? I am hearing mixed reactions..ZS is fully sold, Deloitte is firing, Mck is more busy than ever before....what’s the word on the street
Tier 2 to MBB - do consultants typically study case or do they already have it all naturally since they have been working in the industry for couple of years?
Thoughts on Oliver Wyman Digital vs Deloitte Digital, apart from the former being a major player in FS? How’s the experience been moving from B4 to OW?
Feel like there is a lot of shade on HL FDD. What am I missing? They put together an extremely strong team of former big 4 leaders and professionals and give bonuses that, while not on A&M level, blow big 4 out of water.
MBB do any Salesforce tech work ? Having 8+ yrs of experience in mainly implementing Salesforce CRM solutions for diff clients. Interested to know if there is any opp to into mbb with SF tech skills..

Just got into a full time grad program for international affairs that starts in January of 2021. (completely changing careers). I need to stay working at my firm until then and possible after to get the billable hours for my CPA. I passed all 4 exams and I refuse to give let that go to waste...... how do I tell my employer I'll be going to school in a way that they'll still let me work part time? Extremely nervous they're just going to let me go.
