Why did you take a job with the intent to exit it?

like

Very few of us take jobs at MBB with the intent of becoming Partner

Disagree strongly that tech is the best exit from MBB. It all depends on what you want. Turns out some people are passionate about tech and don’t have another in. Personally I’ve seen people go to a vast variety of exits at different levels of seniority in: F500, private industry, PE, VC, startups, etc.

Best seems like a subjective term when describing an exit opportunity

Why can't you just be happy and content with the fact you made it to MBB? Look out, your privilege is showing.

Assumption based on the demographic of our peers my friend. Surely you've seen it too.

You can likely exit from MBB into a fairly senior role in tech - may be slower/harder to achieve that same position if you stay with your original company the whole time.

Exactly this. Post MBA, post MBB roles are not typically available to most people. Hiring managers in those roles look for more specific criteria. Not saying you can’t do it, just harder. I was a PM before B School. Find work at MBB way more interesting, impactful and with C suite access that I wouldn’t otherwise see.

like

Right career choice. If mbb is so awesome why are ppl going to tech? Are there other good exit opps besides tech coming out of mbb such as investing?

like

What was your role at big tech? Coming from MBB will probably open doors within that big tech not open to you before

product manager

OP - I somewhat agree. Came into consulting from an investment-related role but I don’t see many folks doing MBB->investment. Even if going into VC or P-E, seems to be more MBB->ops roles. Looking around, exit ops don’t seem super appealing

OP what would you want to do after mbb?

Daddy D is throwing around some pretty crazy referral bonuses right now. If I can hit four referrals, I’ll split evenly among all four + myself. Up to $10k per person and at least $2.5k per person. Put it in escrow and everything. So if you’re looking to change firms, a new opportunity, etc. DM me. Can easily negotiate a nice sign on bonus, and my offer should sweeten the pot.
