I’ve been at FAANG for a year and due to the economic climate I’m considering going back to consulting but I’d rather work at MBB than Big4 if I’m going to do consulting.
Does such a switch happen often? I’m thinking about going to the technical wings of MBB companies like Quantum Black. I also have a non target school so don’t know about my chances.

Yea I’m curious about the same - what’s the logic for the switch in a more challenging economic environment? Consulting is all discretionary spend - will also get slashed in a downturn.
