Did you all have to formally request your SAT, ACT, GMAT scores and send them into MBB after you got an offer?
I know of someone that got away with working for two different Big 4 firms at the same time for nearly a year before one of them found out and fired him. Curious if there are any others out there?
Everyone talks about career suicide if you leave big 4 too soon, but shouldn’t overall life satisfaction be more important?
I came across a post boasting about perks in big4 vs park in Witch companies, here are my input 1. I started my career with big4. Although it gave a lots of perk to keep you grounded or get you in comfort zone some major cons were A. Out dated technology stack B. No work life balance C. This big 4 always carry tapes to measure your performance. 2. I recently joined a witch company and here are my inputs A. Latest tech stakes but slow pace of work B. No long working hours (gov job)
Working in Europe temporarily. Have an option to do Executive MBA, it’s around 70-90k Euros for an year. Another option I have is doing part time PhD in Management. It’s around 35-40k Euros for 4 years. Any thoughts on which one would be more useful? Currently work in a T2 in their digital practice. Had plans of shifting to MBB 3-4 years back but lost interest after
How does the new rule impact on amendment? Big 4 has promotion typically every year and which require amendments. Do you think this will effect current H1 holder?
How’s the consulting work life balance at Big 4 in Europe Do folks work more than 45 hours through the week and is it normal to have to work on weekends?
Would it be a bad move to leave B4 FDD for somewhere like A&M or HL or Riveron as a soon to be A2? I’m being recruited and their practice seems to be growing like crazy so I see it as being a good opportunity to ride the growth and get paid more in the meantime. Any advice?
Which firms have the fastest career path outside of MBB and T2? I know those are up or out and they must be fast. But are there other firms that are known for promoting quickly? What is the average years to partner at your firm?
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?
Anyone here have experience boomeranging back to their original b4 firm within a year of leaving for a diff b4? Does this look bad on a resume?
Do the big four (S&A, Business transformation) give market sizing profitability etc type cases similar to MBB?
Currently 26,single, working at big 4 making good $$. But, often I wonder what is it that I’m chasing in life. I don’t clearly have a definition of where I want to be whether it be money/career/life..
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Hi Ladies, Hope you are all keeping safe. I am an African lady who got admitted (Full ride) to a Top 7 MBA program. I am looking to break into MBB strategy consulting. Can you ladies help me prep?
I often see posts about people getting 350K exit or 450K or more in FAANG. Are those strategy folks from Big 4 or are there cyber folks too getting these exits ? I am making close to 200k as M3 in cyber . Not able to anything that would pay more than this in non-consulting ? What roles should I target ?
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
Does it hurt your interview / career at Facebook, Snap, Twitter etc. if you don’t have an account personally? I’m interested in applying to these companies but am a very private person that prefers not to be on social media myself.
Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self... I love the fact our carbon footprint is much lower now, but again, believe this will be short lived. What do you think?
Has anyone worked on Holidays lately? I remove the holiday code and added the client code. What happen to my 8 hours for holidays? Can I just use those hours later?
Is having an all-female event in a company setting inherently sexist? Isn’t defining who is allowed to attend an event based on gender the definition of sexism and should not be allowed?

Does anyone maybbbbbe think that this new “spike” in corona virus cases could be possibly caused by these massive riots in every major city? Not saying the riots are bad or wrong, but let’s not kid ourselves and say these aren’t a contributing factor. So when people are surprised at the USAs rising rates, I mean come on...
I got hired as a freelancer on a project. 2 days in and we’re off to a slow start getting access to what I need. It’s paid hourly. I blocked out time to work a full day knowing I’d dive right in but that’s not how it turned out. My question is do I bill the full day even though I only put in a few hours of kick off calls and contacting folks to get access to the things I need? It’s not my fault they were disorganized. What would you do?
How old were you when you made $1M? Age, title, city - also this can be cumulative not like yearly income.
