Walk down to the cafeteria to get coffee and a client is just rolling in with a novel in hand. This guy also leaves at 330 every day. Industry, God bless.

Hope everyone had a good start of the week! I have a quick question regarding MBB referal. I’ve been working for almost a year at a life sciences consulting firm with a PhD in STEM. Recently I've been considering to move to MBB due to project types, team dynamics, client interaction, etc. I've talked to friends in McKinsey and bcg (former case partners), they are very willing to refer me but they are relative new.

What’s the worst reaction you have seen a client have to typos or syntactical errors in work product? Everyone loves to say “typos are all clients see”, “perfection is part of the job” etc. But have you actually experienced really negative client reactions based on typos? Honestly asking. I’m a 5th year and while I’ve definitely seen clients notice typos, the only time I ever saw one mad about it involved a startup founder who was predisposed to complain about everything for discounts
