Ultimately want to go the entrepreneurship by acquisition route in about 5 years. Struggling to figure out what to do next post consulting. Currently, 2 years in consulting after MBA. Worked for 5 years in a start up prior to MBA
It seems that a significant majority of MBA applicants coming from consulting are coming from well-known firms (ex. MBB, Big4, Accenture, Kearney, OW, etc.). I have a little over 1 YOE and plan on applying to M7 schools in 2-3 years, but I’m currently at a boutique firm that is not well-known. Is this disadvantageous (i.e. should I try to move to MBB - this is a goal of mine regardless but could also be post-MBA) or alternatively, how do I try to stand out when coming from a small firm?
Hi Toronto 🐠 Canadian in the US, COVID-impacted after 6 months at T2 strategy firm. Struggling to figure out where I could fit in/who's hiring? Pre-MBA industry exp is all hospitality. Ideas welcome!
Hello, this is my first time posting. I’m currently working in the hospitality industry with over 30 years of experience and I have my MBA. I’m looking to change careers and industries altogether but I have no idea of how to do that. Any suggestions?
People joining TCS at Senior Consultant designation with 12 years exp, with no MBA degree or even from with exceptional experience in niche technologies is truth these days. Existing employees with 20 years exp working on presales consulting, winning millions of dollars of projects in RFPs, delivering multi million dollar assignments are still not getting promoted and paid in peanuts Makes me wonder if companies are really enjoying so called great resignation period. What's the thought ?
My insurance license has lapsed. Back when I was at Merrill I had to sit through a week-long training course. Do I still need to do that to regain my license? Can it be waived w/ a CFP certification?
As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…

Anyone else struggling to get traction in recruiting? I thought I had a strong resume. Mckinsey EM with distinctive performance and accelerated designation. TMT focus. Worked in finance for 5 years prior to M7 MBA. Engineering from top undergrad. I got rejected from FAANG without even getting a first recruiter call. And I had strong referrals at all of them. Pretty dejected :(

If you are already a consultant, what are your actual post-MBA goal? Upgrade to MBB? Lateral over to IB for more work and more pay? FAANG for the RSUs? Those are the three paths I’ve identified where the business case holds water. Startups seem great but where’s the payoff?
