Is it normal for Director MC at Big 4 (11 years exp) to have to take a case interview when looking at MBB?

Yes, normal. Know of a PwC director who moved to BCG as a project leader. Had to go through case interviews.

Not MBB and not a director obviously, but this sounds really strange to me...

I’ve heard that below partner, case interviews are expected.

Yes, also expect to potentially go one level below.

Definitely yes, also as the others say you will push down 1-2 levels as MBB typically don’t equate tenure at other firms

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
