Got a MBB offer as a lateral. End goal is FAANG. Friends at MBB say placements out of their firms into FAANG is as rare as anywhere else. Truth to that statement? Don’t think it’s worth the reset if it’s still nearly impossible either way…TIA
What is your opinion on moving from Tier 2 (5 years, strategy consulting) to MBB as manager/senior manager? MBB office (LatAm) reached out looking for experienced consulting manager to join their team
4.5 YOE, at 135K 28 years old. Was thinking about starting to study for my GMAT in September to take the exam in Dec/Jan. If the goal is MBB/FAANG, Am I making too much to make it worth it? Currently do Cyber Security and have an IT background
I'm wondering if anyone moved between MBB firms? Is it at all possible? What was the rationale and impressions?
Is a move to PE from MBB worth it?
I am a recent PhD graduate and looking to get into MBB. Looking for people who can refer me. (I am new on this app, sorry for being straightforward)
Hi energy fish, I’m currently in the process of breaking into the energy industry. My education is in energy engineering but I got sidetracked. Now, what is better as a pivot point for later exits and continued career path in energy: A) joining Guidehouse in the energy team or B) joining a T2 in the energy team or C) joining MBB as a generalist but network my way into energy work? TIA ❤️
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Are there strict GPA cut offs for MBB? I’ve heard 3.8 being thrown around. Could someone verify that?
I'm a PhD student (graduating next year) looking to pursue consulting (ideally at MBB or Big 4). I would love to learn about full-time opportunities in New York starting 2023
Are post-MBA exits from MBB actually as good or easy as they’re perceived to be? It seems like everyone is walking out for 15-30% (or more) TC bump, with better WLB at great companies - is it really as easy as just sliding right into places like FAANG and whatnot? Or do folks from MBB also struggle with exit opps and leveling and whatnot?
Hi! Is anyone down to case? I have MBB interviews coming up soon and want to get some practice in. I've interned at MBB and Tier 2 before sol have fairly decent experience with casing. Thanks!
Have a final round with one of the MBB next week, is it enough to reach out and force the other two to accelerate my process? Applied to all three 3-4 months ago but still haven’t heard back from the other two so far.
How long does the recruitment process typically take for experienced hires in generalist roles at your MBB? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
Hello Partners, need some advice. Me 20 yoe, MBA & MS from t20, was a senior manager (associate partner) at B4 for 6 years, in an internal role (e.g EY CBS/ PWC IFS etc) and didn't have a path to partnership, so left b4 & joined large tech (eg. oracle, IBM, Microsoft etc), at a senior director level. Was there for a few years, and now joined FAANG recently in an IC role. $450K TC. I still can't stop thinking about becoming a Partner at B4 or MBB. In mid-40s. Is the PPMD grass greener than FAANG

Why are MBB so particular about B Schools? 😕 Inspite of having a referral from a partner in Bain and relevant experience, wasn't even given an interview opportunity. The only reason I can think of is my B School (just below IIM Indore and along the lines of NITIE, MDI, IIM Shillong) Could there be any other reasons?

Here’s the scenario: I am a marketing manager for company A who has multiple locations. Get a salary, nice bennys etc, it’s even an ESOP. But they like to sneak extra things my way that are their other small companies. They created a larger company where I couldn’t avoid saying, “I need extra compensation for this”. We agreed on $5k for the work. Now they are trying to put it into my usual payroll for their company A, taxed and all. I want 1099. What are your thoughts on this? Much appreciated
In house vs. agency salaries? I’ve been working on the agency side the last few years and it’s great experience. Curious what are salaries like if you go in-house with agency experience. I know it will vary by industry, but I want to hear what are some peoples experiences?
Best wallet recommendations? Been using a Secrid for a while and love the convenience, but the holder doesn’t seem perfect. I definitely don’t want to go back to trying to slide a card out with my fingers like an animal, but looking for a potential upgrade. Preferably <$200.

🐟 opinion poll: do you think it's okay for folks to call younger team members "kids" at work or at team events? Feel like there's an inherent insinuation of them being less respect-worthy (contd.)

PODCAST PERMISSION? I work in the MnA advisory team at D. And I am planning to come up with a podcast about how to enter the domain and what is it like and more around it. I have already thought of not bringing in my firms name or relate anything to it. I want to ask, should/do I have to inform my manager or someone at my firm about it? Are there any legal things I need to look into?

What's the protocol for adding internal portal mockups for a client to your portfolio? Is it expected, something that requires asking permission but is still generally OK, or frowned upon? I'm a developer trying to pivot to UX. Nothing in the contract bc our SOW was originally dev only. If I need permission, I have a good rapport with the Corp Comm director and VP so would I contact them on LinkedIn, or is this something that's normally done through the employer?
Thinking on your feet isn't something that can be taught. How important do you think it is for becoming an NP?
Folks in NJ - I'm moving out of a tiny 1 bed apartment about 540sq ft or so. Reached out to a few cleaning companies to get it cleaned before moving out. Can anyone tell me how much this should cost approximately? Don't want to pay anything ridiculous if there's room to negotiate for this kind of a thing. I'm thinking between $250-300? But have no clue if that's a fair estimate.

Does anyone come across retention bonus in TCS
If I leave or am fired and my contract requires 2-weeks notice will I still get paid for those 2 weeks if they tell me to leave on day 1? “Your employment is on at will basis upon two by either parties upon 2 weeks of written notice”
