Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.
Looking at you MBB & FAANG
Currently a software engineer at FAANG (four years out of college) interested in getting involved in tech private equity. To reset my career, what is the most efficient route to get there? MBB -> PE?
I’m social media drained. I can’t keep up with all you 25 year olds who have $500k in savings, perfect bodies and skin, no student debt, manager-level jobs in tech and MBB, tons of friends and partners/spouses who love them. I’m out for a while ✌️
It seems like a lot of people, at least on FB, jump from big 4 to big 4. Is the grass really greener? Doesn't seem that common within MBB.
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Has anyone ever seen a double promotion in MBB? I imagine it would be applicable for experienced hire that were under-hired.
Does MBB have a GPS practice? If so, where do they recruit from for experienced hires? Big4, Booz, government itself?
Anyone here from MBB in Toronto willing to connect. Moving to Canada for personal reasons and would love to hear more about the industry and practice
How to MBB pitch unsolicited proposals? How do MBB land new clients? Aside from the usual account management approaches Eg onsell/upsell/crosssell
If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
Recently got an offer from MBB, but having a fear that ill have a hard time doing well because im really terrible at ppt. How long does it take to get proficient, any tips?
Would you say H/S grad are held to higher expectations than anyone else given the same role? For example, if someone from H/S landed MBB/T2 and then someone from a T15 landed the same role. Would the H/S person be held to higher standards and be expected to perform more?
Can someone compare the pros and cons of MBB vs. FAANG+M? How does each shape your career? How are MBA opportunities from each?
I accepted an offer for a T2 firm but haven't started yet (background check in progress) and just received an offer at an MBB. Should I take the MBB and renege on the T2? Any advice on how to word this to the T2? Should I renege after I sign with MBB? Are there any repercussions I should be aware of? Thanks for the help!
Struggling with anxiety...anyone gone to a medical professional for this? Do you just go to a primary care doc first and then get a referral?
My boss and mentor was recently laid off with the cuts made last week, and I have a gut feeling I’m next. I’ve tried my best to stay positive with my current agency, but it’s time to move on. I need a change of pace. Understand just about every shop is on a hiring freeze, but anyone need a strategist?
I don’t have kids but a lot of parents with kids are struggling with wfh and helping their kids do their school work plus keep busy. How can we single people help if possible? Open to ideas.
Don’t mean to sound stupid but would I be able to hold ETFs if I work at Deloitte (or any Big 4)? ETFs hold a lot of different companies/stocks so would there be a compliance/independence issue?
Any kid birthday party theme ideas?

Had a final round interview today where I believe 3/4 of them went really well. The call with the manager was okay - they didn’t seem as engaged. Will this hinder me?
If I reject Accenture Technology offer, will I be able to appear for Accenture Strategy interview later on? I have an MBA.
Has anyone exited to a private debt/direct lending shop? If so, what is the comp and WLB like?
“You need to work more hours to increase your utilization, but be mindful of the hours you’re charging. We need to be efficient with the budget.” Oh... ok.
