I have Zoom job interview (not an in person) with a large multinational consultancy (but not MBB/Big 4) for a mid level role. Previous Skype interviews with them have been biz casual dress but this interview is with much higher ups and for a case study. BizCasual again or suit up? Suit seems over the top since they know I’ll be home.
For those who got an international 1 year MBA (INSEAD), how hard was it to transition to MBB, IB, etc? Especially considering how many firms only hire from the internship pool.
I’m a rising senior (Marketing & Business Analytics) wanting to get into management consulting. Any suggestions for which firms to apply besides MBB that accept international students? Also would welcome any online course suggestions that could help me stand out. McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
What would you choose? MBB (Digital practice) or Amazon PMT?
Background: T15 MBA student, 7YoE as Mech engineer, long term goal is to climb ladder in Tech, married and have a baby
Situation: I have a MBB and Amazon PMT offer for summer internship that I need to choose. MBB comes with FT offer, Amazon PMT will most likely result in return offer. If I go with MBB, I plan to exit to big Tech in 2-3 years. Y1 TC for both will be quite similar (around 230k).
Thank you in advance!
MBB EM/ 5 years consulting + a couple of years in industry prior to that. Got a good offer (pay 20% increase and perks) at a big corporate but the title is senior manager which is technically what I do now. I am reluctant to accept because I feel it’s a step down although the pay is good and type of work is interesting. Any thoughts?
Which is a better overall experience for future full time jobs/long term trajectory? MBB internship or Google BOLD internship?
Interested in a variety of things including product/strategy at a tech company, but also areas like PE and non-tech strategy/ops.
Which consulting firm do you want to work at most? Why? Remove MBB unless you want to work at said firm more than MBB. But also make it explicit and say why.
How long does it take a MBB recruiter to reach out after applying? Trying to figure out when to give up hope and apply other places
Just joined a T2 with a sizable raise and very happy about it.
The chatter I am hearing on the company bowl I just joined seems to always complain about comp, which is frustrating because I believe the comp to be quite good (although I will gladly take a raise).
Do folks at all companies continually complain about this? Is this happening at MBB and other T2’s as well?
Any experienced folks out there make the move from B4 management consulting to MBB with no MBA? Currently an M at B4 but considering the possibility of a move in the near future. Would love to hear your experience.
FB have thoughts on going to ZS as a physician? Would take a hit on salary in exchange for career development. I know people say physicians at MBB are well positioned for future, is it similar?
Met a CIO of a VC firm for black beauty brands (like my own brand) who was interested in recruiting me as a venture associate - I would directly be working with her and a contracted finance team for due diligence comp analysis etc. after calling her she said they’d want to do a 90 day project before fully hiring me for the role. The thing is its also during the cycle of other jobs like MBB that I was also hoping to apply for. Should I take the 90 day paid project is that common practice in VC?
Do you need an MBA to get into MBB? Could a masters in finance or analytics help you get into MBB?
Joining mbb soon & am trying to figure out ways to network my way onto a friendly team with manageable wlb. I have previous consulting experience and learned that the team you work with is much more important than the type of work. Any advice on how I could do this?
How efficient and organized are managers at MBB and Tier 2s?
Wondering if this is just a company issues or if it’s pervading throughout even the top companies
