What’s the age cutoff to make partner at MBB?
I’m currently at a boutique consulting firm with a very horizontal structure so have what will be a dumb question to most of you. Can you explain at MBB and big 4, what are differences in tasks...
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
Programs with full rides? 3.9 undergrad at Wharton, already at mbb, 780 gmat. Would like to go to bschool unsponsored on scholarship. Are there strong programs that offer full rides?
Is moving from MBB to FAANG non tech roles (strategy & ops) worth it? How is the career progression?
Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.
What credentials do you need to get into MBB. I have a 4 yr B.E undergrad and an MIS grad degree. Worked for an IT services firm for 2.5 years, Deloitte for a year and now KPMG. Any tips?
How do I get MBB good @ PPT? I’m a staff 2 in consulting & have only had long term projects; teams rarely used decks. I know ppt well, so the Q is more directed towards designing pretty slides.
What made you guys choose IB over consulting at an MBB/T2 out of undergrad? Just started doing M&A strategy and now am contemplating which path to pursue
Settle a debate for my friend and I: does your firm (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4 etc etc) drug test new hires for non-federal roles?
Has anyone has experience with a firm's outplacement services? At MBB maybe? Worth it or not? Thanks!
About to start the interview process. I need to practice my maths before going through the online screens. Does anyone have any feedback what the MBB screens look like and what are some online resources I can use to practice doing the math problems?
Hey Consultants. I just might have a Bain interview coming up in a few weeks. So far I have had 3 R1s of the other two MBB but got dinged. I don’t know what I am doing wrong but I need help as I call this the “last dance” so far I have done 40+ live cases with MBB consultants.
What are the ultimate consulting exit apps (I.e? specific role/team & industry) for the non-technical consultants? Looking to understand the exit opps available that: 1. Pay in line with MBB or exceeds (YOY raise is also in line with career and pay progression at MBB) 2. Have reasonable hours, at most 9-7 so I can pick up some hobbies and have a personal life 3. Have great global brand/prestige that will make me as desirable exiting consulting now vs exiting that company in the future

Advice on how to move from Big 4 to MBB?
At kpmg, we get per diem $50-70 a day and we keep it whether we spend it or not. At other Big 4 I heard y’all get actuals? So if you get $50 for dinner, are people actually eating fancy dinners daily?

Strategy folks - how do you get good at … strategy? Recently started at a startup in a role where I’m the only person under the head of our product team who handles the strategy-focus of the company. He wants me to take more ownership from him and I want to crush it but have no relevant experience here and am still fairly junior. Any books or classes? Or is it just trial by fire.
Normally pay my credit card off in full each month but find myself with a 10k balance (mix of medical, a/c repair, other unexpected events). I have 15k in savings, but I'm uncomfortable using most of it until closer to bonus time (wife stays home and I have 2 kids). Is this the right approach? Paying interest doesn't make sense either. Helpful advice only please
