Is it difficult to be hired in an MBB London office as an American? I’m trying to move to be closer to my boyfriend in the EU and have heard internal office transfers are a bit difficult, so should I apply directly to the office instead?

McKinsey has pretty traditionally been considered the best of MBB, followed by BCG, then Bain.

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

We've been living with this for a while, and she's gone back asking for a pay bump but been denied, but she did not mention that she was married to a man who had a different pay rate. Should she go back again and mention that? She was hesistant to bring our personal lives into it, but I thought she should call that out specifically. I'm not sure what I should do on my side.
