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?
Does the MBB clout still hold weight after you’ve left the firm for a year or two in finding a job? (Only 1 year at BCG post MBA)
Do a lot of consultants need an MBA to advance their career? Also, what firms give you the highest chance of getting into a good program besides MBB?
For those in more “elite” big four groups (S&, Parthenon, etc.) - how do you feel about big four culture? Was it a preference over MBB when recruiting?

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

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.
Want to join PE from a non-MBB firm. From an advanced degree (PhD) background and hence mostly exposed to the LS industry. Want to know if anyone did this transition: PhD > Consulting > PE. Is there any way to go for LS specific teams in PE ?
If I am planning to go to a Midwest business school (Kellogg/Booth), and want to end up in the Boston office for MBB, will I be at a disadvantage because those offices have HBS and Sloan close by?
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Can anyone share their experience as a capabilities/insights/knowledge analyst at MBB? I know it is not a part of the core consulting group, but how is the job and would you recommend?
How does one show personality in MBB interviews? How much is too much? Humour? Info about personal life? Specifically interested for BCG

Had my final round interview with Deloitte on Monday. ( I’m not “running” I need this job). Based on my phone screen with my recruiter I was told she would be keeping up with me with feedback after each interview but I have not heard from her since the initial phone screen (3 weeks ago). I felt like my interviews went very well. When did you finally hear back from the recruiter?
Which is better when it comes to MBB and healthcare technology / product companies (like Amazon) recruiting? Duke or Ross? Also any other consider in this bucket?
