I made the move and I personally regretted it. I was also pushing for a principal position as PL was a step down, but figured that I’d seen people step down to PL when entering MBB. BUT Platinion lead is not treated like a core PL so it is a big step down. Platinion lead is considered a core C, so it is a double step down. I guess you’d need to understand what you’re wanting out of the move too?

Sure feel free to reach out

I am in the group. Our work are very different from Big 4/BAH/ACN… so we look for a different skill set and appears to be very selective….perhaps that makes our recruiting process interesting from the outside. Our team turn over rate is low, and when people leave I have not seen anyone goes to a competitor.

We can give you a high-level description of what we do during interviews. You can also check our websites or white paper.

Has a recruiter reach out for a Manager position. Didn’t get too great feedback when asking around :( but I guess if you do it for 2 years or so to just get name on your resume it may be fine?

That’s what I’m thinking. I’m in a unique position

Ex-Big 4 folks at MBB: how has the experience been for you so far? Any of you been in a situation where you’re coming to a MBB in a lower role but have excelled in moving up quickly? (Or not.)
