For those that have done MBB background checks, what does "5 years paid employment history" mean: 1. Paid employment history from the past 5 years i.e. December 2016 - December 2021 2. 60 months of paid employment history
MBB manager vs FAANG product: pros and cons? I was excited about the perks in consulting but with all of them gone (and likely we’ll never go back to the glamorous lifestyle fully), product roles that I earlier said no to seem lucrative.
boutique vs. big 4 vs. MBB? Pros and cons.
Assuming you are smart enough to do both (I know big assumption), are you better off being a SWE/data scientist at FAANG or equivalent level at MBB (based on YOE) from a compensation:WLB ratio?
I always hear that MBB folks work from 8am - 9pm minimum, assuming it’s a *good* day. Is it realistic to maintain deep friendships in this kind of environment? Or are people always feeling too burnt out to meet up on the weekends?
What’s the best time of year to apply to MBB?
What are some of the resources you use for researching business / industry trends? Gartner, HBR, MBB white papers?
Does it make sense strategically to lateral from T2 to MBB in the next few months (assuming late summer start) if I want to do 2022 on-cycle? Will funds care that I’d only have a few months of experience at MBB / would I be poorly perceived for wanting to leave MBB after a year?
I’ve realized most people actually hate the big D, because lots of the people hired & top talent were near misses at MBB (final round etc.) and they resent the firm because of it. It’s a sad reality but it’s true.
We have 3K members in this forum and less than 31 partners (at least based on posting titles). This is an abysmally low number. I am a MBB partner. AMA here (or feel free to ask privately if you are interested)
Does it matter what headphones you use on a zoom interview in terms of looks for prestigious companies MBB, Big 4 and others? I’ve been told that that my Sony noise cancelling headphones don’t look good and I should invest in AirPods.
What’s working at MBB like for software engineers? Are they good places to grow technical sophistication? Is it mostly ent service integration? How does it compare w/ working at a large product shop?
Has anyone started yet and gone through virtual orientation at MBB? Have mine in two weeks and think it’s going to be really difficult to get the same connections with other new hires that you’re supposed to build at regular orientation
Anyone recently negotiated compensation at MBB ? What was the approach - negotiated sign on / bonus structure / base (I’ve heard it’s fixed so not much room there)?
Accenture AI, Big 4, and MBB which one is the best consulting company for Data Engineer or Machine Learning Engineer role? Thanks.
Joined the ACN Strategy Careers LinkedIn group. Literally every post is by Ruth Faulkner and about women/diversity/being a mother and professional, not about "the job". What a waste.

If you are interested in working for a small startup as a lead data analytics engineer, please DM me. It is a remote job starting at $200k+ and you will be the first data hire so lots of autonomy and knowledge needed. Must be US based and no future sponsorship needed.
Do all firms share utilization reports for all staff with everyone? I feel like it’s awful for our company culture to share everyone’s stats office-wide. Just breeds anger and bad vibes all around.
I have done Diploma in Electronics Engg.... B.E final year pending.. currently working with Sutherland Global services.. any job openings will be highly appreaciated..
Just heard back from EY that they will not proceed with an offer 😞 Receuiter said I did great in interviews but the market condition change/lack of pipeline was the concern. Recruiter wanted to keep the communication open for next year as they expect things to change by then, but all sounds a bit like a nicely wrapped rejection. Disappointed but I guess I should focus on the next interviews with Deloitte and KPMG!
How are non-consulting case interviews different than consulting cases? Would you approach them the same way?
We are set to fly to India from San Francisco in less than a week. With what is in the news for Omicron, we’re really nervous with all the travel restrictions and cases on the rise. Anyone also traveling to India? Anything we should know? Are we better off postponing? I’ve already had COVID once so I think all this just fuels my anxiety around COVID.
