Big 3 is already taken by Kevin, Kate and Randall. Duh.

Shouldn’t. Big 3 in the context of Consulting is MBB. Big 4 is more relevant in Tax/Audit.

Isn’t MBB short enough already?

The big 3 are the big US automakers. Maybe we should call MBB S3 or the Strategy 3

Anyone who's confused by Big 3 probably works at an accounting firm or a shitty consulting firm

There’s a “big” for a lot of things. Law firms, banks, audit firms, consulting. It’s just the context. Unless one of the B4 drop and become the B3 then there might get to be some confusion

Let me guess - you don't work for any of the three of them.

Doesn’t matter to me what you call it

I actually hear Big three (referring to MBB) frequently from non-consulting folks I know 🤷🏻‍♂️

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

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.
