Is it weird that minutes after getting an offer from a Big 4, the office managing partner is inviting you out for coffee and top golf? I hadn’t even read the offer letter yet 🤣 Are audit seniors needed this badly?
Would Publicis Sapient MC practice have exit ops at the same level as Big 4? Or is their brand name closer to Tier 2 strategy consulting firms and MBB?
Ex-Big 4 folks at MBB: how has the experience been for you so far? Any of you been in a situation where you’re coming to a MBB in a lower role but have excelled in moving up quickly? (Or not.) Thinking about making the leap but would love to hear if the MBB hype was worth it. (FWIW: My work hours are 65-80/wk so I’m pressed to think it’ll be that much worse on the other side.)
Started in industry two weeks ago. No timesheets, 40 hour work weeks, and 30% more than what I was making previously. We use all B4 for everything, so it’s just managing their work and budgeting. I feel like I have hit the jackpot. Moral of the post: there is none, I just want to brag about how happy I am now 😂
I'm going to be going to MBB over the summer as an intern. I'm also very interested in investing and buy side roles - what are the options I could look at for full time coming from my MBB internship?
Had a phone screen with BCG recruiter today. As a current Big 4 manager with a specific industry and function focus for ~7 years, when asked if I prefer Generalist or Expert track, I said I’m ok with either, because I love selling (Generalist) but I’m also very interested in continuing my existing focus (Expert). She said she can mark me down for both. What are everyone’s thoughts on not necessarily having a firm one-or-the-other answer?
What are the top TMT consulting firms after MBB?
I've been following posts on people's reactions to India and Indians on this blog. I'm of Indian descent and raised in the West. Do I have a risk of being stereotyped as "Indian" if I try to join B4?
What’s a standard big 4 notice period - 2 weeks? I want to make sure no bridges are burned due to a short notice period.
What grade (GS) level do MBB consultants gun for after 1-5 years when exiting into government?
Would CBS J-term make sense if you want to transition from MBB to a US start-up or FAANG?
Hi. Recently have got an offer from CGI. I have heard a lot of good things about this organisation. I am dropping my joining to one of the Big 4 to join here. Is it worth it? Please comment folks.
Currently a Director at another Big 4 (best guess c.3 yrs from partner) and have been asked to join Deloitte as a Parter. Anything I should be aware of? It would likely be a Salaried Partner offer, what is the normal rate of progression to equity partner?
In a Big4 deal Analytics group that’s not premier with no path to partner... should I try to move to MBB/T2 to gain traditional consulting experience or try for tech/FAANG... I just wanna make money
What’s the difference between MBB and Deloitte? For example, at Deloitte I’ve done 5 tech implementations/transformations. Is MBB mostly strategy and more interaction with client and their c suites?
Anyone tried the new Sanctions Certificate (CGSS) offered by ACAMS? Trying to see how difficult it is considering I don't have a lot of experience with sanctions compliance. I have CAMS & work in AML

I’m in my early 70s. Hanging on to a pretty easy creative job. Any thoughts on where and what to do next?
When a question is asked in the classroom:
Why are we giving intern offers to sophomores?!
Told a recruiter my salary expectations then realized afterwards that I lowballed myself by 20k. Going to interview soon. Any tips on how I can position my revised expectations?
Is it possible to lateral firms at the one year post MBA mark? Its a long way away but interested in trying for MBB again, not sure if they are open to that.
Need to travel for a client but I'm staying at a relatives house because it's closer to the office than any hotel (hello suburbia). Is there any company policy on this?
Want to create a reading list surrounding tech/entrepreneurship/wealth accumulation/how to get rich (non-bullshit wishy washy stuff), any recs? Areas of interest include:Fin-tech/Crypto/E-commerce. Open to journals/textbooks as well as traditional books!!
I have a phone interview for a position that doesn’t have a clear average salary but I have an idea of what their cap is. If I’m asked about salary requirements, is it bad to give a range cont
Amazing!

Hi all.. looking for some advice on how to start a conversation with my manager about seeking a full time offer after my internship ends in a couple of weeks. We’ve never really had any 1-1 on progress updates or check ins. Would this be a red flag?
Any sub $300 office chair recommendations?
