I'm currently looking into joining MBB in Southeast Asia (moving from Western Europe). Are there specific language requirements apart from English (e.g., in Singapore?) Any other advice? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
How is a tech consulting internship at a Big 4 viewed , if I’m looking for full-time opportunities in Big 4, MBB or Tech (FAANG etcs) , and what would be the best way to at least land an interview ?
Did anyone ever go from MBB to Big4? Why?
Hello! I will be attending an unranked B-school in London this fall. I chose the school for a handful of reasons (family, time, program, budget) and even before I have determined that I want to become an MBB consultant post MBA. I come from an EM country, 10 years in Financial Services from brand-name global firms. Undergrad - Foreign Service. Realistically, what are my chances of getting into MBB as a consultant? Do I even have a shot at an associate consultant role?
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
How doable a move is WD consulting (fins) to MBB/T2? Enjoying WD but would like to move into strategy eventually
EY senior consultant with fintech experience and have done financial services risk management at EY. How do I get into the MBB world? Any advice?
FAANG Exit to MBB? 3.5 YOE, Non-technical, 150k TC Been at Alphabet my entire career post-undergrad. Undergrad was a pretty general liberal arts degree and haven’t pursued grad school yet. What would it look like (from a TC + long term career standpoint) to switch over to consulting for a year or two then go back to my non-tech tech lifestyle?
Is Deloitte really more selective than Harvard? I think this is huge if true, they should be higher tier than MBB
How do you see RPA evolving in consulting? My partner seems to think it doesn't have a great potential. BIG 4 and MBB firms will lose RPA mandates to smaller firms/firms relocating work to India.
Fishes, I’m one step closer to securing an exit and would like to thank you all for the support. Now, I need advice on negotiating an offer from Google StratOps, and have a couple of questions where some views (esp. from ex-MBB) would be useful: 1. What’s the typical TC bump MBB consultants are able to get when moving to FAANG StratOps / BizOps roles? 2. Does the base comp increase, remain constant, or decrease? TIA, as always!
Hi fishes.. Advice required since I am confused. Profile - MBA from one of the IIMs, Deloitte S&O, total and post mba experience = 2 I am getting an industry offer for 34 LPA which I feel is huge considering my experience and role also seems good. My only confusion is that I feel if I stay in Deloitte for 1-2 more years, I might be able to switch to MBB or Kearney. I always wanted to try the client site lifestyle and might get better exit opportunities after that. What should I do? Thank you.
How is the hiring scenario of MBB at ISB? How many years of experience in a candidate are they willing to accept (assuming relevant pre mba role, for instance, say in ZS)?
Currently part of knowledge team working on M&A related projects within MBB (coming from Big Four consulting). Feel like the job description didn't actually match the role, doing mostly research-related tasks and have 0 client interation. Just received an offer for Accenture strat (M&A) group, with sizeable TC increase. Is the change worth it: client interaction + travel + involved fully in project?or is the "downgrade" to accenture too large to outway the benefits. Headhunters love MBB.
Hi everyone. Would any of the MBB firms let me live in a city that doesn’t have an office as long as I’m willing to travel weekly? Thank you in advance!
Thoughts on the value of the HBS MBA in Europe? I’m a European planning to spend my life in Europe and deciding between INSEAD and HBS. HBS wins on brand but got cold feet due to a) cost, b) US-centricity and c) worries about type A personality overload. Background: 3 years in MBB, got sponsorship; longer term plan probably entrepreneurship/tech, maybe VC McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company Harvard Business School INSEAD
Would anyone that has moved from Big 4 to MBB be willing to chat for 15-30 minutes? I’m hitting a point where I am enjoying consulting (advisory) but I’m not sure the idea of narrowing in on a specific industry and exact skillset appeals to me. Seems like MBB is broader and I’m curious (also not assuming I could even get in, but I want to explore the option).
How much does brand matter in tech (e.g., FAANG) for exits and career growth/learning vs a smaller well known tech company (e.g., YEXT)? Assume strategy/ops role. Is it like MBB vs other?

What salary can I expect if I am certified AWS solution architect and have experience for 4 years ?
How do we get more Klicksters on here? Slack is great and has so many options. But in the spirit of radical candor I feel like people would be even more open to discussion here anonymously￼.

Hey folks - can you recommend a trusted dry cleaner for down parka? This may be a long shot but I’m not sure where else to ask. Downtown or Yonge & Eg area preferred :)
The more I listen, the more I know that rap speaks to the truth of climbing the ladder in finance. Hate it or love it, the underdog's on top...
Need help from Amazon 🐠 Anyone interviewed for Amazon L5 BIE in GSF supply chain team? The JD said basic qualifications include data modeling, ETL, data warehousing and optimization.

Or like a case study, given a senario and ask how you think in order to tackle problem? Need advice/idea/experience urgently. Thanks in advance.Amazon @BIE
Hi, I am a clinical pharmacist looking at going into healthcare consulting, however I’m struggling on how to make the transfer. I know I have the transferable skills, however I’m struggling to sell my skills when I’m up against people who have had previous consulting experience. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
