No slowdown at Bain! Class sizes are growing rapidly every year. The intern class this summer in my office will be ~1/3 larger than 2 years ago.

We’re targeting the biggest class my office has ever had. Think that’s generally true across offices too.

Big bench, small recruiting

As a 2Y MBA and previous B4 intern, yes. My firm is giving roughly half the internship offers they gave last year. T20 school, target for most firms. Curious what others would say.

We’ve consolidated our consulting recruiting around a few schools at MBA level so not surprised to hear only 2

We are coming soooon

We have adopted a posture of doing undergrad promotes to the extent possible, and backfilling attrition with MBAs.

In my experience I’ve seen undergrad hires perform better in technical capabilities. MBA’s have typically been more adept at relationship management and soft skills. You don’t hire an MBA to be a 3 year rental spreadsheet drone.

I am currently torn between 2/3 options, end goal is to get into MBB. Options:

1. Apply for a MiM at a top European business school. Currently in the process of GMAT prep and preparing application for the end of September deadline. Will help me with business background and help me in the long run by having 2 degrees?

2. Apply for MBB associate/graduate full time roles in the September intake?

3. Apply for MBB summer internships to do between my graduate and MiM start?

Big 4 vs International Law firms - discuss….

Darden vs Yale SOM full time program? No dollars at both.

Working at GDS in the PAS practice for less than a year now. Need some advise in building a career in HR consulting from people who may have experience. The type of work I get here is really transactional and something I won't consider work to be done by an MBA. The pay isn't good for a top tier B School either.
Is consulting only repackaging old ppts into new and sharing it with clients? Is this the type of work expected at GDS normally? Really need serious answers
