What are the consulting firms outside of MBB that do private equity work and have a strong record of lateral recruiting into MBB?
Want to apply to MBB, not sure what the possibilities are: 2 YOE, ServiceNow / ITxM, Engagement Management, 4.0 GPA from Top 50 state school - do I stand any chance? Where could I fit in (technology / practice)? Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Thanks!
If you had to choose between LEK and Altman Solon which one would you go for? LEK would be a 10%-20% paycut, slightly more junior. I would not be asking the question if my choice had MBB in the pot.
What are the salary levels in Big 4 consulting? From MBA stats, intro pay seems to be the same as MBB. But on FB, I’m seeing people say Manager level pay is lower than 1st year Consultant salary at MBB. Which is it?
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
Currently 2 YOE in process improvement consulting, thinking about trying to lateral to MBB. What should I be considering to ensure this is the right decision for me (worse WLB is not an issue), and does anyone have any advice re: what my story should highlight if I do choose to try to make the jump?
Mgr at D & hoping to move over to MBB for a variety of reasons. Should I target Manager or Associate level? Hear it’s tough to build up a network the M level at MBB and that consultants move 1 level down when moving over. Is this truth to this or just disguised elitism lol?
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
Anyone at a T2 or MBB willing to look over my resume? Currently have 2 YOE in gov consulting and am trying to move over to commercial, but am not able to get interviews even with solid work experience + education. Would love any feedback — TIA!
Anyone interview with MBB and get that SOVA online assessment? It was pretty difficult for someone who didn’t get an MBA/write the GMAT… Does the firm typically get back to you if you don’t qualify to move to the next round? Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Anyone work at both MBB and Big 4 in their career (i.e. the McDeloitte combo)? How drastically different was the average level of talent? Were there any dumb McK's you thought would struggle at McD's?
Best luggage for travel? Just got consulting job at MBB and looking to buy some new stuff.
Worth trying to lateral to MBB from a T2 if long term goal is pe investments side? Already lateraled once..
Currently an undergraduate intern at Amazon looking to transition to MBB/T2 in NYC. I go to a semi-target on the west coast and but would love any help i can get. I have a 4.0 and I’m a STEM major - but last year when i recruited i didn’t get any 1R. anyone help?
What is the difference between an Associate Consultant role (in MBB) vs. a Consulting/Business Analyst role (in McK/Big 4/ACN)? Would the former be a step up from the latter, or they are lateral?
For those roles in non strategy such as risk or implementation, does any of the mbb recruit out of non targets? I'm a master's student in business analytics in a non target in NYC, and I really am interested in an implementation/ risk consulting at MBB. ( Different from big 4 risk)
What are the hours like at MBB/T2? Is it possible to do 40-50 hours a week as a analyst?
increasingly wary of the concept of "cultural fit". wouldn't you want a diversity of personalities? isn't it important for business to have at least one skeptic in the room?
In a week, I have a black tie wedding coming up at a beautiful indoor/outdoor city venue. I’m stumped about a dress because I’m also 3 weeks postpartum from my first child. I gained 50lbs during my pregnancy and have already lost 35 since the birth. (It’s amazing how much of it was just baby + bloat!) I am looking for a dress that will hide the mommy tummy (some loose skin that’s still tightening). I’m also nursing and my boobs are HUGE rn. Any recs on how to try to dress this new body?? 🥲
How does everyone calculate their TC? Do you include bonus potential? Other guaranteed cash? Equity assuming full vest?

Question! Does anyone know what KPMG’s paternal leave looks like? My bf and I are having a baby in the spring and my firm gives all new parents three months of paid paternal leave. Is the policy for KPMG different for the Woman giving birth vs the supporting partner (Man)? Thanks!
Can someone help me understand the BCG post-MBA Consultant role? Do consultants manage junior associates as part of the role?
I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years, hundreds of pitches, dozens of speaking events at big shows. I used to be a natural when presenting. Fluid, clever and insightful while keeping it friendly and conversational. Since covid and WFH my presentation focus is totally off. Low energy, nervous, dry mouth, reading off slides, hard to keep my mind in the bigger picture or focus on the story. Womp womp. Really getting me down and not sure how to get the magic back. Depressing.
Have the final round of interview for the Manager position in the workday implementation. How much does the final year manage make? I have been promised that I will be promoted in a year to senior manager if I meet my performance goals.
Just saw a social media post by a CCCO that makes it sound like he’s suffering through this new WFH routine. Jesus. Get some perspective. And what is so tough about WFH? So old fashioned.
Is healthcare consulting a big niche for the MBBs in Canada? What are the pros and cons (outside of compensation) of going with MBB over big 4 if a person is interested in being a healthcare consultant not a generalist.
Hello there! I have been interviewing with Amazon for L6 Sr. UX Designer role. I want to understand what’s the salary range I should be negotiating for that role.

I am highly interested in applying for the "Technology Strategy Consultant" role at the Big D in NYC. One of the questions I have is that a requirement is "minimum if a bachelor degree and 2+ years consulting/industry experience" Assuming my internships don't count for industry experience. I'll only have a couple months of experience as a consultant, I also do have a master's degree if it helps satisfies that requirement. Any insight if Deliotte would consider me as a candidate or toss me?
Friends. I am currently in the US. I have the option to do border TN visa or the mail in option. I am a Canadian citizen. Which option should I do?
When you know the Partner is putting lipstick on a pig when telling you why you should be staffing on her/his project, but you’re still kinda curious
putting in two weeks notice soon and nervous they'll ask me to stay longer. can you negotiate extensions past two weeks to request additional compensation or would that totally burn the bridge
Do you guys have a formal or rule you use when giving out a cost estimate for a project? For clarification: this will be a creative project with a former coworker, I have no idea to the budget.
