Help me fill in the blanks: M7 MBA = MBB + Big 4 HBS = McKinsey Wharton = Bain Stanford = ??? Kellogg = Deloitte Sloan = ??? Columbia = ??? Booth = ???
Folks at MBB in EU/UK are your hours and culture as brutal as US? Heard from my Australian colleagues it can vary quite a bit. Appreciate your responses as I dream to relocate!
Does anyone from MBB Canada know what the post MBA comp is? Does Bain really pay lower than the other two?
What separates MBB from the rest? Work output, pace, branding? How often do people from non mbb firms successfully move to them? What skills make candidates stand out?
I am currently a SA at EY-Parthenon on the West Coast and looking to case for MBB. Comment if interested.
How important is expertise with data visualization tools (ex: Tableau) in the Strategy consulting space today (MBB, Strategy&, Oliver, DeloitteS&O)?
Have any 🐠 here left S& for MBB at the post-MBA level? I’d like to talk through the differences and adjustments in ways of working you had to make after the jump
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
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.
I'm a senior at a non-target ivy just got an advisory return offer at big 4. How do I initiate conversation with MBB for full time if they don't come to campus/I don't have personal connection
3 years in industry,3 years in consulting(strategy and operations). Been thinking about entering PE, but it seems impossible to break into given background (not mbb). Thoughts?
Did anyone lateral across MBB?
Quick Q for y’all. Im having trouble finding cases that match the level of difficulty that I experienced in my BCG interview. Anyone know of a good repository for MBB level cases ?
Do MBB have facial hair policies?
MBB 🐠, if you could do it all over again, would you? Thinking about getting MBA and would love some honest feedback. TIA!
Best exit opps out of MBA programs? Why is everyone so obsessed with MBB or PE? What are some other high paying opps with better WLB that are fun as well?
Anyone know someone who’d be interested in a marketing role at a top VC fund in the South? You’ll be working with some of the most successful investors in the region - partners include a former unicorn founder and a CEO of a $15B company. Ideally a background in tech/digital marketing - looking for someone with 2+ YoE. I don’t have salary details, but I’d imagine pay’s around 80-90k + bonus. DM me for details.
Once the new year starts can we contact our respective hotel/car rental/airline companies to ensure a fast track to retain our statuses
Humor me please. I don’t understand his many people esp. in the US with a college background go months unemployed after being laid off. On LinkedIn I feel like recruiters are often reaching out and there are so many job opportunities. What am I missing?
Just got an offer with BDO in the Data & Analytics practice. 30% raise, lateral move (Manager 2 to Manager 2) and 20k signing bonus. Is it worth the move to go form PwC to a firm of that size?
Starting my first job in an agency next week. Any tips, do’s and don’t, things I should know before I start? I’ve been wearing a tshirt over zoom for so long now I’m not sure what to wear when I go into the office.
Apparently using headphones is soooo last year. 3 random people unrelated people decided to take turns watching videos on their phones with full sound during the flight.
BIPOC who started working in healthcare advertising and eventually were able to leave, how’d you do it? My spec book gets me interviews for junior and mid copywriter positions, but when they ask me what kind of work I’m doing at my current agency, the whole conversation goes south. They either become immediately disinterested, or beam up and suddenly the interview is only about an open pharma role, which is more frustrating because if I want to stay in health I’d go for copy supervisor roles.
How's MBB in Malaysia?
All my MBB 🐠, is there anyone who would be willing to chat with me about your role and experience, the company culture and work and potentially work with me to see if I am a good fit and also if you would be willing to refer me? I am currently a Senior Consultant at EY.
Can anyone share their experience of applying to a PhD program? I am strongly considering it at some point, and am curious how others experience has been.
I just started doing insurance defense 3 months ago. A few of my billing entries have been cut. I feel very bad. Does anybody have any tips for writing better time entries?
Does anyone have advice about helping your kids through video conferencing anxiety? My 6 year old normally loves taking, happily volunteers to speak at school assemblies is completely freaked out by classroom zoom discussions. Says that “talking on a computer is weird” and he’s anxious to the point of tears.
Do firms honor online MBAs for the increase in compensation? I've been in consulting for a year and I'm considering online programs bc MBAs get paid significantly more (although we do the same work). Thoughts?
Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
Freelance designers - what do you do for professional liability E&O insurance? I’ve looked at some quotes and they seem pretty pricey. Do you have it or just not bother? I just started an LLC for my graphic design business. Located in Pennsylvania, USA
How does one ask for points when things go wrong at the hotel? Today I had to swap rooms because my original room smelled awful after housekeeping cleaned it this morning. Contd..
A friend is a copywriting intern turned junior copywriter at a social media shop, writing social media captions. Can she be a junior at a serious agency w/o a portfolio? Or start over as an intern?
When you work from home and set the alarm for 9AM and consider that "sleeping in"... I feel old.
