Yeah it’s real easy BCG keeps trying to recruit me but I’m too happy with my lower pay and worse benefits to move

What a silly question.. I don’t think you’re cut for it given the level of resourcefulness portrayed by the ask..

Am I the only one with literally no interest in MBB because of travel and overall WLB issues? I get paid less, sure, but a higher hourly wage; I live at home; and I still get (largely) the same types of exit opportunities with the difference being frequency and ease of first interview (which isn’t that hard to overcome). Maybe I’d feel differently if I didn’t have the same undergrad or short stint at BB on my resume, but honestly think people are dramatically overestimating the benefits.

I wish the app had a way to filter out posts with ‘MBB’ in them😂 My fb scrolling time would go way down and I’d be so much more productive at work!

Id suggest applying and finding out. They only recruit two ways - direct applications and from school. Your post said without business school, so that leaves you with one option. If you can get a referral, get one, otherwise, just apply. The process isn’t a mystery.

When transfer do you mean you are you applying to McKinsey or you accepted an offer from McK and are wondering how your prior experience would “transfer”?

Tbh, not sure if it is a good move. Basically you are going to work at competitors. I have seen many people doing so but in the exact same position/team, but I don't really feel great about them.

But your future employers after mbb might care

If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
