So rare

I would say it's INCREDIBLY rare -- I have never seen anyone exit into B4 consulting. Even if you're counseled out, most are done with consulting.

It does happen, but it’s senior folks who get counseled out. Non-competes usually keep them from going direct - they wait a year or two - which is why on the MBB side folks don’t often hear about it.

Have never heard of someone leaving BCG for a big 4, sure it's happened, but not common at all.

I think more end up at boutiques than B4

Someone moved to my team from MBB below PPD 👀

What's PPD

Partner, Principal, Director

Yea we've got a decent amount. C1 is mistaken

We see this a lot. Some MBB partners get counseled out.

This happened to a partner from my office who was counseled out - but we only heard about it when someone ran into him on a train a few years later. He peaced without a word (at least to the office junior staff). But yeah that's the only level I've heard of it.

Is the BCG Knowledge team equivalent to Offshore consulting / GBS teams or is it a back-end Knowledge team. Employees seem to suggest that they do consulting work as well. This team has sectoral specializations unlike the flagship model. Unbiased insights? I am currently in Big4 consulting and want to break into MBB. I also know switching tracks does not happen since I had an offer from McK Implementation and turned it down after speaking with many employees there. Also, the track is super slow.
