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. Experienced colleagues it would great if you could share an insight about this. McKinsey & Company McKinsey & Company EY-Parthenon Bain & Company
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?￼
MBB interviewers: How often do you receive S&O candidates from FAANG applying to your firms, at the pre-MBA level?
Did anyone ever go from MBB to Big4? Why?
Hi there, I will be completing 1 yoe in May 2022 and looking to join MBB's. My key skills are Aletryx, SQL, Excel with VBA, R, Python, Tableau, and Power BI. I am looking for some guidance from people working in Analyst roles at MBBs.
What is the real deal across MBB, Tier 2, Big4?
Are there strict GPA cut offs for MBB? I’ve heard 3.8 being thrown around. Could someone verify that?
Is Deloitte really more selective than Harvard? I think this is huge if true, they should be higher tier than MBB
Hi Y'all, sorry to jump in here uninvited as I'm not a part of MBB. I wanted to get your opinion on a firm to get a perspective on if it's a good opportunity or not. Have any of you heard of Stax?

Partners that have experience at MBB and B4+ACN - if you were to choose a firm, excluding the one you are at now, which one would you pick if the only criteria were: thought leadership, reputation with clients, and intellectual horsepower of colleagues.
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Hi all! My brother has 8 YOE post his Masters with a US bank in their rates trading division as a software developer- managing, supporting and developing software for pricing trade executions, risk management and reporting requirements for the trading desk. He wants to pivot out of banking and maybe look for an opportunity with FAANG or with MBB/Tier2 consulting. Any inputs on how to go about this transition, what hiring managers look for and if consulting is an option? TIA
Hi! I’m looking for referrals for MBB, Kearney, OW, EYP, S&, and AlixPartners. I'm a Canadian with an engineering undergrad, MBA, and 6 YoE in telecom.

Please let me know if you would be interested in discussing further to determine if going through with a referral is appropriate. Thank you!

Is the Outdoor Voices Exercise dress worth the hype? I’m considering pulling the trigger but I’m on the taller side and want to wear it out without getting too many stares. It’s also $100...
My Uber driver in Memphis, upon learning that this was my first time in Memphis, insisted that I needed to visit the Bass Pro Shop Pyramid and even made a detour on my route so that I could see it on my ride to the office. I arrived late to a meeting, and unfortunately my SM did not believe me when I said that I was late because of the pyramids. 2 years of remote working really narrowed down the scope of acceptable work excuses imo

I’ve been going to a close friend for lash extensions since she started. At first her prices were reasonable, but now her prices have increased and are out of my budget. I found other lash artists who are great (if not, better) and charge less. I’ve never asked for a discount but she let’s me know that she gives me one but it’s still more than others I’ve seen (by $60 more). I want to go to another artist - what do I tell my friend when she asks about my fresh set of lashes?
