For folks exiting to FAANG / Product at start ups or really any hot company. How do you go about networking to get the interview? Do you apply then cold email someone you may have an “in”with, or are you picking say 10 companies and then having warm contacts there that you’ll ping when you see a job. I’ve been passively looking for jobs but zero luck, I only want to leave for the right fit. Big 4 here so feel my brand won’t auto get me an interview like mbb/t2
Want to reach out to old friends (school mates / interned together) who are at MBB. Best way to reach out to not be “that guy asking for a referral”. Even though that’s exactly what I’m doing.
Does anyone know the MBB areas of growth in the coming years for the Toronto practices? I want to align myself to those areas to give myself the best shot for lateraling over in a year or two.
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
Deloitters who have left for MBB or a big 4- did you get fired when you told your leadership? How did that work? Do you now answer “yes” when asked if you’ve ever been fired from a job?
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’m convinced 70% of MBBs revenue comes from the healthcare & financial services sector, and less of the exciting TMT work the rest of industry is heading (ex FAANG). Can any of y’all say you have greater than 30% REV here? Feel most blue chip clients have ex-MBB Corp dev teams in house by now...
Are you at a disadvantage recruiting for PE as a second or third year MBB out of undergrad as opposed to first year? Or do PE firms value the diligence experience more?
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
For those who have gotten into HSW without having started a startup/non-profit, worked at MBB/PE/FAANG, or gone to Ivy/MIT/Stanford undergrad, could you please share your profile/story? -ORM & mildly above average gal trying to find hope
How to best allocate time, from first to final round of MBB process for 2-3 weeks? Just keep doing cases daily / focus on behaviourals / read white papers/ relax a bit ?
What pays more at entry level, FAANG biz ops or MBB? What about at the next level (after 2 YOE or so)?
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.
MBB/LEK or IB? An important factor is that I want to end up in NYC - born and raised wi to a SO and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. I have read the MBB/LEK competition in NYC is fierce… how true is this?
As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
How is tech consulting in big 4 different from other consulting firms like ibm, capgemini etc?
Has anyone not practiced “ casing “ and was able to still do well in an interview? I feel after a certain time spent in the industry you naturally start to understand the goals / potential pros cons of business’s.
When does the CSP 80k SOB promotion end?
My overdue promotion (PM to Sr PM) is in progress, but processing is taking a while due to company Covid delays. Is it inappropriate to ask my manager what the salary increase will be? (It’s killing me to wait and wonder if it’s lower than I’m expecting)
What's the anticipated salary range for a Manager at PWC (~7 years of experience)? Financial Services Enabling Technologies practice NYC.
