2.5 YOE in consulting - being offered partnerships role at Sony. Comp doubled but am also interviewing with MBB. Should I take it or stick with consulting? I’ve enjoyed consulting so far (to promote this year), but am also a music lover!! Not sure if exiting now is ideal if I can exit out to a more senior role in future. Any ideas on how’d you approach this?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Does anyone work in cloud strategy? I am just about to matriculate out of ccg into cloud strategy group at Deloitte. What sort of work do they actually do?

Aside from B4, MBB, FAANG what other companies still sponsoring given this environment? Girlfriend is international and has T20 legal/business education, international legal/MBB/VC experience. Cont.

Do you guys at BCG think it would be a smart decision to make a lateral move to PL from Big 4? Have great network and support at current company. The MBB brand, 20k increase in TC, and potential better exit opportunities would be reasons to move. Worried about the challenges of starting from scratch at BCG, proving myself as IC in first few projects, and probably a worse WLB. Would love any insights TIA!

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”🧐
Are there PhDs here who transitioned to consulting at MBB, EY-P, Altman Solon etc. I am a PhD candidate ( Earth Sciences) at UIUC and have begun seriously considering a career in consulting. I am looking for advice and/or mentorship on: 1. Crafting a consulting resume and cover letter 2. Networking as an advanced degree, how important it is? While I am in touch with some consultants from my academic background, I haven’t looked at the relationship as a potential referral as of yet.

I'm calling it quits. With the most recent rejections from EY, KPMG, Crowe, then rejected and ghosted by PwC, I'm hanging it up.

Thanks again.
