Is it even possible for an Analyst at D to do a lateral hire to MBB? If so, how’d you advice going about it? I interned at a very selective tech company and held multiple leadership roles on campus.

Yes - but be prepared to come in with no tenure credit. There are others at MBB who have made the move. Get a referral if you can. If you can’t, wait until off- season (eg, after October ends)

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say

For "senior" roles at FAANG, does the title correlate well between the companies? Unlike the discrepancies we see between consulting firms? I see widely varying YOE in the job descriptions (more team dependent than company dependant) but I'm not sure how faang companies perceive each others' titles. Data science if it matters.
