Is only the generalist track at MBB considered elite by future employers and colleges? Saw some digital roles but wasn’t sure if it carried the same weight or not?

Can assure that expert consultants at McK have left the firm for fine roles in the industry and grad school degrees at ivy’s. Just as you would expect an McK consultant wanting to leave the firm to do.

If you come in at a digital analyst level and expect FAANG to bend over backwards for you. You’ll be in for a rude wake up. If you come in at the expert level with a ton of experience already, McK probably had to bend over for you anyway.

In summary, how come FAANG don’t want me man?

Here’s a weird question for the MBB folks - how competitive would you say you guys are, internally? I think people at ACN arent not competitive but most of us generally do want to help each other succeed. Meanwhile, I’ve heard there’s some particularly sharp elbows in MBB, especially toward the EMs…would you guys say this is true? Curious how cut throat the internal mentality is.
