Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!
Does MBB has any practice that relates to construction and real estate consulting. Similar to EY CREAS?
People who’ve left MBB/consulting for FAANG: Is it everything you thought it would be? Better or worse how?
Wow. McKinsey, which has the biggest public sector presence of the MBB, really hasn't been doing too hot at all in the sector. Its presence is tiny and it's gotten even smaller. Meanwhile it's bungling whatever opportunities it's getting. https://www.propublica.org/article/how-mckinsey-is-making-100-million-and-counting-advising-on-the-governments-bumbling-coronavirus-response
I’m applying to the pre-MBA MBB programs but am undecided between a non HSW M7 and Tuck with $. Does listing one school over the other have an advantage?
If the goal is MBB in NYC - Columbia, Wharton, or Booth? Or should I just go with the cheapest option
Coming from tech, $500k TC. What level at MBB pays this much? Feeling the itch to get back on the road again.
US - does any MBB have plans for an office in Indianapolis? Seems like a good base of clients and I’m considering mid-sized cities longer term, but want to stay on consulting path.
60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
Do you think it’s better to go to immediately go a firm that’s beyond your skillset or work your way up to that firm? For example, going to a T2 firm as an experienced hire having never done consulting without or starting at a smaller consulting firm and then going to T2/MBB?
What is some good volunteer experience if your goal is T15 (M7 reach) -> MBB? And how can you discover opportunities?
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!
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?
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?
Discussion post: I feel almost all consulting firms are the same. Mbb, big 4 etc. if you are paid enough there is probably less wlb. If there is good wlb there is not much money. Can you single out a company that you can confidently say pays very well and also has good wlb and also has good opportunities etc.?
If majority of MBA applicants come from consulting, why is MBB still the most desired path for recruitment? Aren’t the bulk of folks tired of consulting going in? Seems no-one waits out for Tech recruiting...
Anyone have any intel on Office Of Baby?

Looking for input on a career decision. Me: 9 YOE, homegrown manager who is currently doing a stop in industry. I have an offer to return to consulting (M&A). My end game is pure strategy. Do I take the offer or wait for the opportunity to interview for pure strategy? My take is it’s more difficult to lateral the more senior you are in your career.

To all my SDRs/AEs/AMs/BDRs that are out there, I’m running an experiment that I’ve never seen before: Have you ever worked together with a teammate to close your company’s deals? I’m talking start to finish of sales process, from cold call to closed booking. I’m curious to know if folks always tackle calls by themselves, particularly intro calls, and beyond. Obviously there has to be a handoff at some point, but where is that inflection point? Trust is probably THE most important rapport
