Anyone start at MBB as a lateral and just feel underwhelmed? I always felt MBB was the holy grail but have found the leadership style among many of the MDPs so off-putting. At times it’s like working in the court of a deluded emperor
How is attrition/relative happiness at the MBBs compared to Big 4/the rest nowadays? It seems as though the lion’s share of complaint posts on here and Reddit come from Big 4 consultants, specifically around the topics of attrition and issues with their firms, teams, or projects. Does MBB seem quieter because it’s better there, or are the disgruntled MBBers just not as loud as Big 4 folks? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Looking into staying in London after my diplomatic assignment is up, ideally with MBB or a boutique firm at the AP level, preferably TC above £ 220k. Is this a reasonable expectation for someone with 17 yoe and multiple countries/roles? I know comps are lower in the UK then in the US, but surely partners at these firms are still bringing in £500k plus right? Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
How do you attract and retain mid-level talent when industry / FAANG pay so much more than MBB?
About to become a manager at MBB, have an MBA at HSW. Honestly, I’m just not that passionate about work, but I want a well paying job. What is the most straightforward path to 400k in total comp (I’m in Texas), while working 40-50 hours a week?
Is the MBB Sponsored MBA worth it? Hi I’m going to be working full-time at an MBB soon and have been thinking about pursuing an MBA in ~3 years. If I can continue receiving promotions, is the opportunity cost worth it? Is it better to leave MBB after those 2-3 into an industry role? Also, is it too ambitious to say I want to earn $1MM/YR? Would exiting to industry be a faster way to do it than consulting? Thanks McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
Help me fill in the blanks: M7 MBA = MBB + Big 4 HBS = McKinsey Wharton = Bain Stanford = ??? Kellogg = Deloitte Sloan = ??? Columbia = ??? Booth = ???
Leaving MBB was the best decision I ever made. I know many view it as a professional pinnacle, but it's not the end-all, be-all it's hyped up to be. If you haven't been able to make it, try again if you'd like, but don't let MBB define your career. It's not worth it. Plenty of other amazing firms out there.
Is there a substantial disadvantage being at a DD heavy non-MBB firm (LEK, EYP) compared to MBB for PE recruiting? Would it be worth lateraling to MBB 1 year out of undergrad for better PE exit opps or is the difference not enough to warrant starting again at entry level at MBB?
Anyone exited MBB to Amazon and lived to talk about it? Worth it? Not worth it? Why? Seriously weighing an opportunity to join in Seattle.
How "prestigious" are NYC offices? Is an NYC Office at a Tier 2 > than a BFE office at MBB?
Anyone at MBB looking to make a referral?
Considering going back to consulting because tech feels stagnant in terms of career trajectory & pay. Have a T2 offer but want to try for MBB too. Am I deluding myself with the allure of the exit opps from consulting? Should I take the T2 or hold out for MBB?
MBB fish any advice on nailing a virtual interview? What should candidates do differently (if anything)?
Just started at a tier ii but received a MBB offer slated to begin in 2020. I lateraled from another tier II so it would be 3 consultancies in 6 months... any advice to handle?
MBB folks - is anyone worried about layoffs, especially now that start dates seem to have been pushed, etc?
Will a cover letter significantly help my application while applying to MBB? Or significantly hurt if I don’t attach one? There’s nothing unusual about my resume to explain (i.e. employment gaps, reapplication, etc) so my CL would primarily be explaining why I want to work for the firm.
Just had an interview with a jeopardy multi day winner, multiple degrees and majors from top schools, ex-mbb, and held a major position in a major US city governance, while now being a director at a F50 company. All before the age of 35. Makes me just so feel so dumb and insignificant despite knowing that's probably not healthy haha. Anyone else have a similar experience? What was that peron's background?

What's your preference? King bed or 2 Queens? I like 2 Queens so I can lay out all of my clothes on one bed. Ain't nobody got time for hanging shit up.
