Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
I have sponsorship from my consulting firm (tuition, requires 3 year commitment, definitely does not pay like MBB/T2). I got a 60k scholarship from Kellogg, should I just consider making a move to MBB/T2?
What was that site again with all the different salaries for diff levels at FAANG, MBB, etc? NOT payscale or glassdoor or linkedin
Was never the type to care so much about feeling out of place but the last few months since I joined MBB i've been finding more and more how the firm is full of rich kids with similar experiences and a shared network. It shouldn't matter, we're here to work, but I'm bothered anyway. Idk where I stand here -- cant blame them for having overlaps w each other -- but I feel very much excluded to say the least. Can't relate. Feels like it makes a steep slope to succeeding in consulting even steeper.
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
130k with 7 YOE (change management/project management), per FB post, I feel like I’m extremely underpaid. Will similar position in MBB or FAANG pay a lot more (assuming same non technical role)
Is 112K for a startup good for 2 YOE in MBB in nyc? I was personally targeting 135K at least but this seems interesting
For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
How difficult is it to jump from a Big4 to MBB?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
Manager after 3 years at Accenture Strategy, which I joined out of Uni. Which title am I likely to get if transitioning at MBB?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
General management consulting is super interesting to me and I could see myself doing it as a career. My biggest gripe is the WLB at MBB. Would smaller middle market firms offer similarly interesting projects with more reasonable hours?
MBB folks at Google Cloud S&O- how do you like the work? Is the work too much Ops focused?
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than MBB?
MBB? More like DPEK
How hard is it to move to FAANG from a relatively unknown boutique consulting firm? Are there extra leaps compared to MBB or Big 4, or if you get a referral you have similar odds?
We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
I’ve been maxing out my traditional 401k, Roth IRA, and HSA for 3 years now. Should I be looking into Roth 401k contributions? I know strategies vary but want to make sure I’m doing something obviously foolish.
23M here. Anybody have any tips or book recommendations on not feeling haunted by your past and anxiety about the future and consistently stay in a “FLOW STATE”.I’m currently reading the Power of Now. I have a habit of burning bridges because I feel that I’m perpetually trying to fit in and act “cool”. I feel that I’ve always been somewhat unconfident but every year it seems to be more and more difficult to manage and taxing emotionally. I go to the gym 4 times a week, try to eat clean, socializ

Advice on your using another offer to leverage salary negotiations during promotion? Deloitte is offering me about 30-40% more. Would love to stay if I got at least 25% more at BAH.
Anyone heard of Dosh app? Looks like I can get $50 in cashback/week booking my hotel through this, but I don’t see options to combine with my loyalty program.
How is Frontier to fly? I generally stick with American or United, but some friends I’m planning a ski trip with are lobbying for Frontier because it has nonstop from DCA to DEN (admittedly more convenient than IAD for anyone that lives inside the beltway in DC area, but there are many more United nonstop options out of IAD in case there’s a delay or cancellation). Thoughts?
I have decided to leave my firm and would appreciate your input. If you work for a firm/company that empowers women and supports their growth to leadership positions, and has a decent culture, please drop the name to add to my target list. Thank you
