Hey all, looking for some advice. I tried for MBB during MBA and I wasn’t able to progress beyond the first round. I ended up at Deloitte and currently have 1 yr of work experience. My performance feedback was very good for this year. Do you think I can try again for MBB now as an experienced hire with 1yr of work experience or is it too soon? I’m interested in east coast North American offices. Any help/feedback would be super appreciated!
What are the differences between MMB, Big4, and Boutique partnerships?
Seems like Big4 pension plan is a pretty big plus compared to MBB. "Prestige" aside, this sounds like a sweet deal. Or am I missing something here?
Im working this summer and looking into programs to help with case prep and interviewing for strategy consulting at MBB + Big 4 firms heard of rocket blocks and myconsulting offer any thoughts on the two or recommendations for another program if there’s a better program than the two?
How do LEK and ATK compare to the Big Four and MBB? Do they offer better exit opps than Big Four consulting?
Do MBB have permanent blacklists? Have failed twice at two of MBB's NY offices - all EH recruiting. Have I tried too many times to get a look if I try again via MBA or EH for 'easier' non-NYC office?
As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
Can you preserve some time in level when switching to MBB? I’m at 2 YOE. I understand that I would probably get the entry level title, but would some of my time in level transfer as well (I.e. I start not purely as an entry level title as if I just graduated, but as an entry level title with 1 year of progress of time in level)?
Lateral MBB interviewers👀: For behavioral questions (“tell me about a time”), is there a need to know the industry of a given project a candidate uses? If they worked at a consulting firm prior, can they just give the type of work performed (Ex: Workforce Restructure, Process Improvement, etc.)? TIA🙌🏼
How are opportunities at MBB? Is in market recruitment still active or have they been paused?
MBB 🐠 in your opinion, do you think emphasizing more unconventional things in my background (community college; retail work) in addition to my consulting exp. would help or hurt my future apps? Why?
Want to optimize for tech PM recruiting. Can I focus on this single-handedly when recruiting for internships as a first year, and if it doesn’t work out, recruit for MBB as a second year? Or should I recruit for MBB and tech PM internships simultaneously as a first year?
What is the highest scholarship you have heard of that an evening or weekend (not full-time) MBA candidate was offered by the top 10 business schools?
Also, does having a 'big name' employer (MBB, Google, Goldman Sachs etc.) lower chances of getting a scholarship?

I have a 5.3y work ex with ACN, as a FSCM consultant (L10 currently, was assured of a L9 effective March, but declined due to growing poor culture within ACN).
Got an offer from PwC India
