How much weight does brand name consulting firms have on top MBA programs? For example, is it significantly better to work for MBB firms vs. big 4 vs. well known specialized boutique firms?
Anyone have a link for interview questions for someone interviewing at a mbb firm from big 4 advisory? If you don't have a link posting a question you think I should be prepared for is appreciated
How is Kearney ME in terms of project and wlb vs. mbb and tier 2? I have an offer to join them from Europe and trying to decide if worth the move
Too early to leave MBB after <1 year for a start up if you think it’s a good opportunity? Anyone with experience doing this? How easy is it to return?
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
With over 15 yrs marketing, tech and ops consulting in agencies, tech and startups, is it worth even considering roles in MBB or similar? Any advice is welcome. Deciding on staying independent or not
MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
I want to exit to MBB but if that’s not a possibility what are the next best consulting firms? Looking for at least midsize firms (non-boutiques).
Have you noticed different MBB Business Units treating candidates poorly? I.e. BCGs Gamma and Platinum will ghost candidates for weeks, while their Core BCG counterparts are handheld through process?
Long run what pays more MBB or FAANG ?
Hi all! Looking for advice! Im starting at an MBB out of undergrad (interned at D). Met my cohort and coworkers tonight at happy hour. Everyone’s super nice but I can’t help but feel drained. A partner probably noticed that I was nervous and actually pulled me aside to tell me it’s ok etc. I’m obv grateful for the opportunity but just worried i will be seen as too introverted or not confident enough and be a problem in front of clients. My MBTI type is also “not consultant-y”. Any advice? TIA!
Hello fellow MBB fish! I had a question I am hoping to get insights on. I accepted an offer from McKinsey in NYC and was supposed to start in March, which I now pushed to May.
Should I wait to update my LinkedIn? I joined MBB after a brief post-MBA stint at a CPG company . I was only there for 2 months and I don’t want my MBA classmates to think I jumped ship too quickly and judge. Should I wait until January to update my LinkedIn?
What grade (GS) level do MBB consultants gun for after 1-5 years when exiting into government?

Anyone have luck with Talkspace or online therapy? I signed up for Talkspace, payed, and then was never matched with a Therapist. They refunded me after I reached out but then offered an even bigger discount to give it another shot.

eBook or Online course? Hi all - curious as to what you’re preferred medium for learning and prepping about case interviewing. I’m a former EM at MBB and had coached and interviewed hundreds of folks (still do today). I know there’s a lot of material out there already but let’s assume I can add value and have a solid approach/methodology - would you prefer an an ebook or online course? Also what would you pay for each? (If anything at all lol)
