I read somewhere that MBB have a “moral veto” clause where any consultant can opt out of a case if it violates their own sense of morality. An example might be a vegan taking on a meat processing client. Can anyone verify? Is this formalised or just a cultural thing?
How’s EYP wlb for 3 yoe? Is it as bad as MBB
For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
Hey fam. Appreciate your inputs on this: I used to be a software developer and currently work as a tech risk consultant (CISA, CRISC certified). Have completed a couple of cyber courses but do not have prior cyber experience. Most cyber sec job postings require prior experience in cloud, aws, devops etc. Applied to a couple of roles but no avail. A) Can I start a career in cyber security without prior experience? B) Will CISSP or relevant cyber certifications help?
I’ve realized most people actually hate the big D, because lots of the people hired & top talent were near misses at MBB (final round etc.) and they resent the firm because of it. It’s a sad reality but it’s true.
@ BCGers & Bainies - Making a comparison between BCG and Bain offers. Need to verify one quote I got from recruiter - "at Sr Manager level, profit sharing comes into picture as additional compensation over and abovr Fixed and Cash Bonus, at roughly 30% of Fixed". This seems to be pitched as added advantage over BCG comp as a PL. Skeptical about the claim as I assumee overall comp at any level in same geography will be similar across MBB. Is there any nuance to this?

Any Interview tips? This is my first job interview in 4 years I think! Interviewing with a startup for a business role… Looking for general guidance vs content specific necessarily.
What is the best way to find out about hot new startups in your area? I mean startups who just recently secured their series A or their seed. I'm a little tired of being an engineer at a big corporate like Amazon, and would like to start applying to smaller, promising, more fun startups (size 15-30 people for example, not 1-2) but all I can find on Linkedin are already big established companies.

MBB fish: Thoughts on 2 vs. 4 months transition if you knew exactly what you wanted to do and wouldn’t need more than 2 months for it to get panned out. Why would you still take 4 months?
