Did anyone ever go from MBB to Big4? Why?
What kind of work does MBB actually do? I’m pretty sure there is boring work happening everywhere, but essentially, are your coolest projects cooler than the coolest projects happening at Big Four, Accenture, etc.?
Serious question: do I *need* MBB on my resume to have good exit ops from consulting? I have an M7 MBA, but struggled to land interviews because I didn’t have big brands on my resume (confirmed by recruiters). I wouldn’t be surprised if most/all F100 and FAANG hired MBB only.
Looking into staying in London after my diplomatic assignment is up, ideally with MBB or a boutique firm at the AP level, preferably TC above £ 220k. Is this a reasonable expectation for someone with 17 yoe and multiple countries/roles? I know comps are lower in the UK then in the US, but surely partners at these firms are still bringing in £500k plus right? Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
Any perspectives on exit opportunities available to lead/managing data scientists coming out of MBB? How do opportunities compare on pay wrt. those for S&O consultants? Thanks.
Does MBB compete mostly between themselves? Are there other firms that put up decent fights?
Just hit 6 fig salary!!!! I honestly never imagined this day would come, and so soon. I know 95% of you are probably laughing at me but it’s a huge day for me. Needed to publicly pat myself on the back - now to plan celebrations for this Weekend!! 😁
💥If I’m a T2/MBB/Big4 recruiter and find out a candidate accepted with us, reneged before the start date, and is joining a competitor consulting firm instead, what stops me from messaging that other recruiting team & letting them know this is a “bad Apple”? Experienced hire recruiting, where universities regulations aren’t in play?
Hi folks. Looking to break into consulting. Have 5 years of experience across financial institutions in the US, Pakistan and Canada. I have previously interviewed at BCG in Chicago and even though I didn’t clear final round, I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Finally in a position to be able to consider this again. Would any of the MBB / Big 4folks be willing to chat/refer me? 🙏🙏🙏 McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group KPMG Deloitte PwC EY
Anyone who went from tech/product to MBB? How was the transition and did it work out as expected?
Anyone have insight on the work life balance and compensation (coming from HSW) for the following fields?: IB, PE, VC, Consulting (MBB). Also, is it hard to switch between those 4 industries post MBA?
What is post-MBA associate comp in Canada at MBB? Is it thr same nominal figure as US, but in CAD (I.e., lower when converted to USD)?
For those who’ve interviewed and gotten offers from both MBB and T2, how different is the interview process? Are the cases at MBB significantly more difficult?
MBB 🐠 is health strategy (general, not payer and provider) a priority or existing area at your firm? Are those sort of positions easy to come by? Always trying to keep my eyes open.
Does anyone know where I can find a list of LMM-MM funds that hire ex MBB consultants? Looking to leave my MBB, but the info in where to target/network is scanty.
How is FB Product Strategy for comp, benefits, and WLB for EM/PL profiles exiting from MBB?
What type of stories do MBB consultants who want to continue their career in their company tell in their applications? Im going to apply next year but Im not sure how interesting my application can be. I dont have time to do much asides from work and in the future I'd like to work in PE (have worked in many projects in this practice) which is pretty cliché. Can any MBB folk share examples of their general story?
So basically everybody is leaving non-MBB for tech and MBB is just like ya we’re sick…? Did I miss anything?

Seattle folks - what part of the city is best for young consulting people? Trying to relocate and want to identify safer parts of town
It’s crazy that millions of Americans are struggling to survive on minimum wage, while consultants are pulling $200k+ to make powerpoints
Shit Partners say:
Hey all, got an offer at EY FSO Digital & Emerging Technology as a senior consultant (UX/UI) 125k (no bonus) with 2yoe & located in HCL city. I originally asked 125k thinking I’d be staff II, so I was surprised with the senior title. Should I be asking for more or is this a good offer?EY
Please advise: Sent an email to a partner explaining that I want to take a step back in an initiative because project has been long hours, and I wanted to focus my energy on something else I’m more interested in, and offered to help the next person to transition. Got a reply saying I’d advise to say no up front rather than making commitments I cannot keep. I’m so upset that I cried. WLB has been hard and it was not easy making this decision. What do I reply? Don’t want to leave on bad terms.
When thinking about leaving a firm, is it the smarter choice to wait until you’re promoted to leave or does that matter? I’m 2 years in and may be promoted this Aug which comes with a comp increase and bonus…I’d really like to leave consulting asap though but am just now starting the job search process and want to be thoughtful about my next step
Weekly NYC to SFO gig coming up. Any tricks for making these transcontinentals less stressful?
What is the standard salary for a Senior Associate at KPMG? Interviewed a bit ago and waiting to hear back. I have about 4 years of experience and would be an experienced hire.
