Anyone who went from tech/product to MBB? How was the transition and did it work out as expected?
How long is it reasonable to push back MBB interview dates? I have a first round interview at the end of this month but am in the middle of a very intense project. Is pushing the interview back by 2 weeks unreasonable?
Got offer to move to financial services start up- way better culture and slightly better salary + unlimited remote work so I can travel. Think I'll be happier there but also really want an MBA (cont.)
Recognize post-MBA PE is difficult without prior PE experience. How feasible is post-MBA PE with ~2 YOE in consulting (DD focused), and ~2 YOE in corporate development/M&A in industry? Assume M7 MBA
Is it viewed as “not good” to go back to my alma mater for MBA? It’s a top 40 business school and got me into B4 consulting easily. School has strong recruiting presence in the region I want and I have a full ride for their FT program. Appreciate any thoughts!
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Anyone from MBB open to having a conversation with me? I’m a part-time MBA candidate and would like to get some advice on how to distinguish myself from my peers
Anyone work at Wood Mackenzie in their consulting arm. Only have 50-60 people in US, but growing and have ex-MBB folks. Not much info available outside because of the small size
Any 🐠 at MBB or in Life-Sciences? Have a few questions regarding work / life in London and would appreciate if anyone is willing to share some insights. Ty!
Hello everyone! Nice to meet you all. I have 6 years of experience across Deloitte & EY and currently studying for the GMAT. Targeting R2 LBS and R1 INSEAD (I’m based in London :) ). I’m currently 30 but very motivated to make a switch to MBB post business school. Should I be worried about my age? Do MBBs prefer younger candidates? More on my experience - working within the Consulting practice at D, doing Tech Transformation work. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all :)
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Does anyone have the 2020 SHRM books for sale or to borrow? My job won’t contribute towards my certification. I’ve already paid for my test. I have the books from 2015 but I’d like to study from the 2020. I tried finding them online to purchase but sellers of affordable books aren’t responding.
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
Is it harder to get into top MBA programs for consultants? How do programs differentiate between applicants in consulting?
Everyone keeps talking about regretting not being a SWE at FAANG and earning 250k+ straight away. If you aren’t at MBB, there is a very good chance you would also have not got into FAANG
MBB 🐠Does interviews round 1 performance impacts the final decision to extend an offer or does the final round matters most? Gauging my chances when I feel like borderline passed round 1
MBB 🐠 is health strategy (general, not payer and provider) a priority or existing area at your firm? Are those sort of positions easy to come by? Always trying to keep my eyes open.
MBB interview process is on hold but want to keep case prep fresh. How often is case study prep recommended each week to keep it fresh?

Creating a company where the product will be mobile first (app). Can anyone well versed in legal structures shed some light on the ideal Corp structure? Bootstrapping for now, but want to leave the door open to raise money if needed. Create LLC for better tax situation, or C Corp to be investor friendly?… any pro tips when considering structure for the long term?
Hola, Bon jours, Namaste, Ciao!! I am a bilingual teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area and I thought it would be fun to start a bilingual teachers' group so we can all share our ideas and expertise!

ACN folks - it seems comp is out!
Just a shout out at the diversity I have been seeing while on-line shopping. It is something I am really happy to see. The various skin colors, hair types and body sizes are refreshing! Finally, I see people that look like ME! There are still some aspects that I am trying to fully embrace because for too long I was feed the lie of what the "desirable" body or hair type was. BUT I am changing and I am glad my children will not go through that brainwashing.
Traveling to Oahu and would like a Marriott property on Waikiki. Would you recommend Westin Moana or The Royal Hawaiian?

What are your thoughts on the value of a Harvard Extension School degree vs. a standard online MBA from a reputable public university? I feel like the Harvard name carries a lot of value....
Fiancée thinks I’m crazy for wanting the theme tune to the movie Delta Force played at our wedding. Technically it’d be after we leave the ceremony (as guests are also leaving). It’s a movie that meant a lot to me growing up, I love Chuck Norris and the song just sounds kick ass. How do I convince her that this day is meant to be for both of us?
A buddy of mine got a Tile from Marriott for being Platinum Premier Elite. I'm PP Elite, didn't get anything?
Working at a B4 and trying to get a return offer in a different group from the one I’m interning with. I’ve been networking crazy, but the recruiter says she has to see if my profile matches first. How can I take matters into my own hands to pivot?
Accenture >> Deloitte?? Have an offer from Deloitte for a SM with a 50K jump in salary however need help to understand: 1. Experiences moving from A to D? 2. wLB? 3. Bad idea to move at SM level? @deloitte ,
Anyone else finding it very difficult to get any enjoyment out of account management these days? Any coping tips? I feel like being an account person is especially difficult in the COVID era since so much of what we do is manage communications, ensure the team is set up well etc. None of this feels particularly fun alone staring into the void of Zoom all day ... but the same pressure is still there. I feel like I spend every week counting down to the weekend which kinda sucks.
I love orange is the new black but can’t stand how the inmates make pop culture references that they wouldn’t even know had they been in prison since at least 2013.
Left my B4 for another with 135k base + 15k sign on and rejected a counter offer of 118k salary + 36k bonus 3 YOE - thoughts?
