For those that received a top MBA, looking back at your career would you have rather had an M7 MBA or a T15 MBA that was a half or full ride?
Starting MBB soon and would appreciate any recommendations on preparing myself for success on my first day? I’ve got a number of weeks until I start and will take some time off, but I’d also like to stay sharp and come in feeling confident. Any suggestions are welcome.
Its MBB work really that different from the rest of the consultancies? Outside of the branding and the pay that is?
Headed to a T2 this summer for my MBA internship. Thinking of rerecruiting for MBB in the fall. Anyone know how recruiting might look this year post-COVID? Thanks in advance!!
MBB 🐠: how significant is the risk of appearing to “spray” your resume to multiple opps? ID’d second internal position that’s also a good fit. Both of these are non-referral (ie, website applications)
Male 🐠: just started dating an MBB consultant. He’s not great about texting during the week but our dates go really well. Is the texting thing just a consultant thing or is he not that interested?
How does Partnership work? Do you really need to buy into it, if so how much is the buy in and what are the perks of getting admitted to the partnership? Asking for both, Big4 and/or MBB.
What’re mbb staffing models like? I heard bain was moving to more regional. This true across the board? Mck and bcg global/national/regional?
Turning 30 and just feel like I’m getting dumber. I am a smart person (at least relatively) and work at MBB but lately I just feel as though I have not been as sharp as I normally am. I spent the last week drinking and going out till 3am every night (NYC) so that doesn’t help but are there any tips to regain my form and just become smarter?
Any MBB folks down to give me feedback/advice on my resume? Also looking for a potential referral if possible. Only if you think I have a chance!
Hey, where can I learn more about employment in FAANG? After more than a year in consulting, I think I've developed a good understanding of the industry and kinds of work etc. but I'm clueless about tech... asking because I'm contemplating going all in for MBB but a lot of people are advising me to look into tech...
Do MBB require GRE/SAT scores?
Analyst in a small boutique firm but hoping to move MBB. Any tips on how to position myself, set myself up with experience ahead of networking and applying?
I went T2>MBB and am thinking of going back to T2 because I prefer to aim for partner (MBB is not sustainable for me) rather than taking industry exit... Is this a dumb move? I’ll be dropping pay slightly but with better working hours one step below partner vs industry at ‘head of’ level...
I have a post-MBA offer with Accenture Strategy and I'm seeking advice on whether I should pursue this offer, or if I should continue to recruit for MBB (which may open more doors/opportunities). I previously worked 4 years at Deloitte Consulting. Where do people from Accenture Strategy (not Accenture Management Consulting) tend to go? Is it possible to have similar opportunities as MBB firms or do you have to work harder to get MBB-type opportunities?
Starting full-time @ MBB this month. I’m really interested in recruiting growth equity (GE) at some point. I’m pretty familiar with PE recruiting but not sure how growth differs. Anyone have perspective on any of the following: 1- Does ￼GE recruit on cycles? If so what is the typical timing? 2-￼ Are modeling tests standard as part of the interview process? 3- How are consultants perceived in the industry? 4- Do large GE firms utilize headhunters?￼￼￼ 5- Do large GE firms have operating roles?
How do you pay for an MBA/justify the cost if you don’t exit into IB/PE/MBB/Tech? Is there anyone that go to an M7 that isn’t trying to get into one of the above and also doesn’t come from a wealthy background? i.e going into marketing to CPG, how much does that pay post-MBA?
Anyone fly into nyc recently? I heard you need a negative covid test within three days??
