Can anyone offer color on salery levels moving from a global advertising agency to the the advertising/digital practice of a Big 4 or MBB consultantcy? Is it similer to the strategy consultant pay or is it it's own level?
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
What are some of the best consumer tech firms to target in Europe? Looking for a right fit after 5 years in MBB consulting. Wanted to check specifically about firms such as N26, Revolut, Delivery Hero, GetYourGuide as I found roles in them.
Any thoughts on the MBA program at Boston University? Is Boston University MBA good enough for positions at FAANG or MBB? And what about the MBA program at MIT?
Do those from MBB and BB banks have best shot at B School? I rarely hear about T2s and Big 4 getting into m7
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
Can anyone share their experience as a capabilities/insights/knowledge analyst at MBB? I know it is not a part of the core consulting group, but how is the job and would you recommend?
Is there some comprehensive doc that maps MBB consulting levels to typical FAANG exits, types of groups etc? Or is this tribal knowledge?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
End goal: strategy at a large industry player (auto, apparel, etc) Is it more logical to use the mba to jump right into those companies or use the mba to get into Mbb/tier 2 and then jump?
Potentially silly questions but when people generally say that you have to be at MBB to make the jump to PE, are these folks doing PE type work like diligence or something relevant or are they doing more broad type of consulting and getting into PE because they have the MBB brand?
Currently part of Deloitte US firm in India 2 YoE + MBA and 4 YoE in Industry pre-MBA. Moving soon to Canada. Can anyone comment if it's possible to get into MBB in Canada? Any one willing to put referral?
Apologies if this was already asked but what is the tuition reimbursement for MBB? Accenture gives you $100k. I heard MBB covers it in full and gives you a reduced salary during those 2 years.
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
I’m starting a new ECD job in two weeks. Feeling like an imposter. What do i need to do that’s different than being a CD? (The CCO is very involved so it’s probably closer to a GCD in role)
Planning to travel international for Christmas. However, initiated H1B transfer process with Deloitte. Can I travel internationally during the transfer process? I have a valid visa stamp till 2021.

Sitting behind Ben Carson, from ATL to FLL, wonder what he thinks of the debate last night. Famous people that you saw on the flight?
How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
Best way an new undergrad hire analyst made a great first impression you? Starting a new role soon and want to build a great reputation from the start. Maybe besides just doing great work.
I’ve been on a couple dates with a guy and we got ~physical~ on the second date. Third date is this week but due to COVID reasons I want to know if he’s seeing other people... what’s the best way to ask without thoroughly freaking him out? Usually I wouldn’t care this early but I feel like I need to be aware of his “germ pool” 😂
Consulting is like driving with your client in the passenger seat and they keep trying to grab the steering wheel and drive you into oncoming traffic.
Tell me about your experiences moving from NYC to LA! Curious to know how work culture differs, and if it's possible to land a job while interviewing from the opposite coast? And, how possible is it to get a moving stipend? I'm junior but looking to find a mid-level role for my next job.
Folks who have been naturalized -- is it really necessary to bring printed copies of tax returns or evidence of your international trips to the interview? I've read about people bring several years worth of tax returns but nowhere does it say on USCIS.

Do you think Alvarez & Marsal will require employees to get a covid booster shot and/or seasonal flu shot?
4 weeks on the bench. Reached out to 15+ MDs and SMs to help with proposals and/or staffing opps. Radio silence. Guess no one needs help then.
Team leaders - If the team has a sharepoint or teams site, please use it. Managing the offline files you send us while the client is updating online creates so much unnecessary work and hassle
