Anyone have success cold applying for VC roles and not in MBB? Just submitted an app last week and they should be reaching out this week, but I’m not sure how long to wait before giving up…
What are the pros and cons of “research” positions at MBB? Likelihood of transferring into consulting proper? Looking at the capabilities and insights analyst @ McK…
Any former ACN people currently at MBB willing to connect to speak about how to make the transition? Have a couple yoe doing design and tech strategy work and am very curious about the process as I want to pivot into more of the pure strategy space. Thanks!
LBS vs CBS? For context: Sponsored MBB (US office, non-NYC). Want a big city school. Could potentially stay behind in NYC after but not married to it (odds go up for staying in the broader Northeast). Probably wouldn’t stay in London unless I had a really compelling reason. Somewhat interested in tech but that’s not why I’m going to b-school. Given all that: Mainly interested in commentary on the school experiences themselves!
If there was a Super League of Consulting firms - which firm would map to which club? MBB = Madrid, Barca, Man Utd? Deloitte - Arsenal? (relevant purely based on brand and old glory, folks don't get paid well, attrition, resource scarcity no one wants to join them etc.) KPMG = Totttenham?
Does MBB recruit at one year MBAs?
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than MBB?
Asking people who went from big 4 to mbb, is it much more “difficult”? If so? How much more?
Does anyone know how competitive LBS/INSEAD are to get into coming from MBB? Have been promoted at BCG and am considering LBS/INSEAD to get more of an international experience, but no clue how competitive it is. I have avg GMAT scores and undergrad for BCG.
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.
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
Hi all, 3 years into MBB and job was taking the toll on me, and we were unable to get pregnant. I forced myself into an internal role to get some breathing space and therapy, and we ended up getting pregnant. But a few months in, I moved back to client facing and it has been absolutely difficult to spend time at home and keep my wife happy. She is expecting some quality time every day for a few hours, and I am just unable to do that. Its probably a combination of the job and also how I
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
What all-in $$$ package is reasonable for an analyst type role at a small PE firm in NYC after ~3 yrs in MBB consulting without previous industry experience?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Having a chat tomorrow with a person on the bargaining committee at one of the new Vox unions under the WGA. What questions do you have about the process, possibilities or challenges they've faced?
Paid team currently complaining about which vendors didn’t send them holiday gifts this year 🙄
Anyone driving significant growth using digital marketing? SEO creating Website leads? How are you winning business in modern innovative ways? I have had success with natural market and referrals but as I target and segment my client base differently, I’d like to use 21st century ideas to grow my brand. What have you done that works?

How to maximize getting SPG points?
What would be a reasonable total comp to exit into medtech or health tech corporate strategy role at senior Manager level? The next level above is Director. Credential is MBA and PhD and 3 YOE post MBA. I’m assuming there is a discount compared to Pharma but is that true? I am thinking base + expected bonus should be at least $210k. Is this too high or low?. Thank you for your insights!
Anyone already work out an optimal combo for a couple that each consults on earning? We aren’t super advanced so basic choice is either both go Marriott, or split and one go Hyatt and Hilton
I'm at a small firm with 2 associates and 1 managing partner. The partner fired our 1 paralegal and now puts a lot of paralegal work on me. I'm the first female attorney this firm has had in over 30 years. I'm not allowed to bill for the paralegal work and already have to meet 40 billables/wk. The other associate is a man but has the exact same credentials/experience as me, but gets more cases/high stakes cases and is never asked to do paralegal work. Am I delusional to think my boss is sexist?
Does anyone know what is the compensation for a Managing Consultant at Mastercard Advisors?
Does Deloitte start GC process at senior level and is the PERM file for senior level or manager? Seems like EY’s policy is to file at senior level but for manager position. Wanted to understand Deloitte’s process.
I must confess that I have been purposefully making mistakes in my work to get my partner to yell at me 😩 he started not catching my mistakes so I had to make them more egregious. I fear that my kink might end up getting me fired 🥲
I'm on a brand new American Airlines A321. Like brand new airplane smell. NO SEAT POWER. NO ENTERTAINMENT units. #AAssholes #ihateAA #neverAA #AAsucks
What are some good questions to ask the interviewer during a second round interview for an in house position? These interviews will be by the other members of the legal team and business partners (not the hiring manager himself).
Is this accurate: Final interviews are mostly about the personality and culture fit test more than technical skills test?
Recently joined Deloitte’s government practice post-MBA, within strategy/analytics, can anyone speak to exit opportunities for consultants in this space, beyond roles within government? Commercial exit opportunities seem to be fairly straightforward, just want to understand what I might be looking at in a couple of years
