Kellogg (no money) vs. Darden (50% scholarship). At a boutique consulting firm now and trying to move to MBB. Which do I choose? I love both schools.
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
MBB Manager total comp breakdown?
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
What are some cons of working at MBB? Bad work life balance is probably the biggest but ‘what else’?
From one Desi to fellow Desi reaching out for help ! I have had some luck with MBB firms but failed to convert. I am currently Senior Manager at big 4 with end to end SC experience. I will highly appreciate if folks from MBB/exMBB could spare time to provide me some guidance.
How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?
For MBB interns who finish their summer internships and receive return offers, can they directly transition to FT? Or do they need to wait for some period of time
How does LEK’s healthcare practice compare to that of each MBB firm? All views welcome, zealots and balanced opinions. I work for the healthcare team and am considering defecting. Just wondering if the grass really is greener.
Consulting bowl when all Deloitters move to MBB.
Currently own a house, both sides of family, wife with great job, and long term aspirations to stay in this city that has a T25 MBA program Vs Leaving it all to go to M7 for a couple years. Worth it or no? Consulting path but doesn’t have to be MBB.
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Is it realistic to aim for a move to MBB after 1-2 years of experience at a Tier 2 firm (OW/ATK/RB/S&) in the region? How difficult is it to move from Tier 2 to MBB?
1yr of work experience at MBB -- prior experience was in non-profit / community development. What exits could allow me to stay in the private sector that aren't consulting? I think exiting to Tech or a bank is unlikely with no prior experience; I want to eventually return to non profit work, but still want to spend the next few years in the private sector (tbh, just for the experience and so my MBA didn't go to waste). Any ideas?
Wharton EMBA worth it? Late career starter so limited white collar experience but interesting background/past life. Also have kids to support so can’t do a full time program. Want the MBA for career boost ($), as an entry to faang/MBB and to have more security for future opportunities. Worth it? Does the EMBA have the same faang/MBB recruitment access and weight as full time?
I'm getting my MBA from the University of Arizona, how prestigious is the AACSB accreditation? And do MBB or Big 4 Consultant firms care about it?
Has anyone ever applied to MBB multiple times before getting accepted? Or is the blacklisting thing real?
How are people "networking" now that we are wfh? I mean, you are barely even aware if people still work in the same company. Previously, you at least saw them every now and then at the office but now... They could have fired half the company and I wouldn't know
Calling out data scientist EY FSO. What’s the culture, projects and work life balance like? Trying to gauge a DS opportunity there and any thoughts would be much appreciated!
Recently transitioned to a startup and my confidence has skyrocketed. Presenting, interviewing, making my point heard are SO much easier when I’m working with colleagues and not clients who I feel don’t want me there. For those who struggle with confidence, there is hope!
Has anybody maintained 2 separate work from home jobs? Or know someone who has? I feel like this is an easier way to make sm/director level money ...
Booked a short weekend trip in Chicago awhile back for next weekend and I’m wondering how difficult it is to find stuff to do with covid going on. Anyone have any recommendations?

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
