I’m a generalist consultant now not in gamma group (post MBA)

Hiring for our engineers is a bit different. If you can code and present well you’ve probably got a shot.

You probably won't grow or be appreciated as much as someone technical in a consulting firm, even if it's MBB. Join a tech company

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.
