Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?

I accepted an offer for a T2 firm but haven't started yet (background check in progress) and just received an offer at an MBB. Should I take the MBB and renege on the T2?

Is WLB better at S& than MBB/Tier2 or worse? I feel like it’s probably the latter because of Utilization/PwC culture, but want to validate.
Looking at you MBB & FAANG

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?￼
Career trajectory for MBB vs PE megafunds? Is it harder to make partner at PE firms compared to at consulting firms?
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
Hi everyone- I recently accepted an offer to join MBB in June/July. I just found out I am pregnant ... I am worried about taking maternity leave shortly after joining.. anyone else have similar experience? Another concern is that I don’t have prior consulting experience (have a MBA) and worried about being able to perform as a consultant during/after pregnancy. My husband is thrilled but to be honest I’m not excited about this pregnancy :(

Crispin has layoffs a couple of weeks ago. They announced it at a virtual town hall. The CEO did the usual “good people, hard to see them go” routine. Then he pivoted to the fact that he had safely made it to his Swedish vacation home and proceeded to walk around with his laptop and show it off to everyone.
Hello all. Recently left an agency position to go back to freelance. ￼Have an idea for a promotional thing to agencies as an experienced freelance copywriter, an ad-industry-specific promo I want to do and need a reality check.￼ When you present concepts (i.e. ad concepts, websites, etc.,) do you use fake body copy? If so, what are the names you call that fake copy? I’ll be glad to share it, but ￼because it would look like some kind of a stealth pitch I’ll wait. Thank y’all.￼

Hello - I am thinking about taking an internal mobility opportunity for a lob strategy role. Any idea of a VP salary for this type of role and how/when to discuss an increase during the process. JPMorgan Chase
Isnt it weird that they dont pay you a bonus after 10 years at the firm because you are serving your notice. I think its unreasonable to work for the whole year in question, be on the payroll when the bonus is paid out, contribute signifanct revenue to the team and still get paid nothing because its 'discretionary' once you tell them you are leaving.

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
Any tips for how to make internal networking feel more natural? I know face time without a specific client need is important, but I can't find a way to make it feel authentic.
