There is a bracket of folks at big 4 who would clear the MBB bar easily, but unfortunately there is a huge portion of big four that wouldn’t given lower hiring bar, so yes a lot of people do successfully make the switch, but they do have stellar profiles outside of big four too. Could be subject matter expertise, mba, etc.
