Which MBB offices use online tests as part of the application process for entry-level consultant roles? I'm based in US, and honestly haven't seen it that often
Most interesting post-MBA exit that you’ve seen? Something besides the usual MBB, PE/VC, FAANG, etc.
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
Hey hey guys. I am looking for a good example of a cv of a mbb consultant who moved to a FAANG. Any guidance here
Has anyone regretted the decision to work at one MBB over another when you had more than one MBB offer? Why did you regret it?
Does anyone know what kind of resources the MBB firms provide for entry level consulting staff to pursue business school? Like in terms of applying etc? Obviously anyone from McK would be the most helpful!
9 months ago, I posted on this app that I was leaving FAANG for MBB. Every single responder discouraged me from doing it given worse WLB, less pay per hour worked, etc. I’m here to say that you were all correct. Every single one of you. I would go back in an instant if I could.
For folks that went from MBB/T2 into Big 4, why did you make that switch and did you get a boost in title that you would not have reached at MBB/T2.
On average, how many yoe do I need to not have to come in at a new grad level at any of the MBB? Considering going back to consulting from tech but don’t want to level down. Current have 2.5 yoe.
Are starting salaries for the same jobs different by school? Like for example would MBB/FAANG pay more for a HBS grad than a Booth grad? Or is it just that the HBS grad has better chances at landing the position, but the pay is the same?
Did anyone make a transition from being an MBB data scientist to a FAANG data scientist? 1. How did you differentiate your value proposition? Given the solid technical bar, does consult and business skills create an advantage? 2. How do you feel about the change? 3. Any tips on the preparation process?
Anyone at MBB want to put me in for a referral? Coming from a Big 4. Not seeing much growth and opportunity in the firm and partners and pipeline for the foreseeable future. (cont.)
I’m a MBB EM/PL, 5YOE, no MBA. Is it possible to exit to a $350k+ TC role in industry? Feel like lack of MBA is inhibiting for high TC given my age.
Is Seattle a good city with enough management consulting opportunities? For companies like MBB, LEK, Kearney and Accenture?
Starting as ASC/C at MBB soon and have zero clothes to wear in-office/client (coming from advanced degree where I wear shorts 24/7). I'm wide AF (5'9 220) from lifting and built like a rectangle. If you had to rebuild your entire business casual wardrobe from scratch for a non-slim build, where would you go? MTM or off the rack + tailor (in house or external)? Tried some charles tyrwhitt shirts but I'm all over their size chart so they would take a ton of work to fix.
Which of B4 + MBB pays SWE/DS the most? I know they can't compare to FAANG, but just among these guys, who pays the most? Who has the best talent/tech implementations?
Need help! Is there a quicker way to put pics into an excel without clicking insert > picking it out of my downloads? Like a drag and drop way? Or a hot key? Searching through my downloads for pics is super annoying and I’ve got folders that remain at the top for some reason when I insert a pic and it’s just a super bad time.
Is it accurate that PwC now has a separate group for audit support valuation? Or is the deals valuation practice primarily conducting audit support work? Thank you!
Last week I asked about whether middleman staffing companies like Creative Circle, Aquent, and Robert Half were necessary when freelancers can be hired directly and potentially earn more. The general response was that staffing companies provide a service and can benefit both the agency and the freelancer. So I thought I’d pass this along for all of you Creative Directors who may be looking for your next gig.

I have been saving money in a HYSA for some time and it has amounted to $200k... the plan was to use it to pay for grad school and potentially house but now I can’t stand seeing the money grow so little anymore and feel that it might not actually be wise to have it in a HYSA just for it to be liquid. Does it make sense to put everything in a brokerage account ASAP and buy a low-cost index fund? Or should I portion it out? Keep it as it is for use in 1-2 yrs? Or just any other recs?
Any AWS TPMs that can shed some light on interview process? I have my first round of phone interview in a few days and would love to hear some tips, questions, experiences.. thanks in advance!
