Is it worth applying to Darden and/or Fuqua? Post MBA goal is strategy consulting, preferably MBB but also open to other consulting firms based in NYC. Seems like most of their placements are in the South.
Suggestions on how to move from digital transformation to a more strategic role (not necessarily MBB)? Happy to have a quick chat with anyone that can help/advise!
Coming from government consulting at Deloitte and I’m looking to apply to a generalist role (where I can explore multiple industries) at MBB. Should I try to hide the government nature of my experience on my resume and interviews at the risk of seeming unforthcoming (since government consulting experience seems to be viewed very negatively) or lean into it? I’ve seen a couple other threads on this but it’s only non-MBB people that respond.
MBB shortlists for laterals: some folks at Big 4 are directly getting mails from MBB. How do MBB get their contact details? Has anybody got shortlist through Naukri or LinkedIn?

MBB India vs Big 4 US? Currently at 170K TC in US with Big4. Offer to move back to India MBB.
Long term goal to be in Tech and optimise around that.
Currently on H1B … no path to GC. Incredibly bored with the Implementation heavy work we do.
Is the MBB final round pass rate different for undergrad level vs post MBA level, maybe due to there being way more undergrad applicants? Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
MBB 🐠, do you place younger experienced hires from other consulting firms (1-3 YOE) into a specific industry and/or function (strategy, analytics, etc.), or do they just go into a generalist pool?
Currently work for a startup but have 1-2 years of consulting experience at the analyst level for a T3-4 firm. Would it be difficult to get back into consulting (aiming for MBB or T2)?
Hey folks, anybody willing to refer me for consulting position at MBB, Kearney, OW, EYP, S&.
I have more than 2 years of experience in market research firm and have worked in a startup in UK and Germany.
I had passed the CV screening at Bain, LEK and S& London offices last year. I will share the SS for credibility :)
I am happy to have quick chat.

MBB BAs/associates. How would you compare Miami and NYC in terms of quality of life given the specifics of consulting? How hard is it to commute and travel for work? I only lived and worked out of NYC. It wasn’t too bad, but I assume I gotta drive a lot more in Miami.
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?
MBB folks: Does most of your strategy projects entail conducting primary research, summarizing results and presenting a readout to the client?
I’m a data engineer/engineering manager by trade and massively screwed up by going into MBB consulting, I absolutely despise it and am looking to leave about 8 months in. I have a great offer from a fortune 50 for product management in tech at a similar salary, way more RSU’s but can’t shake off the thought that I wouldn’t be an engineer anymore. Any advice from you guys to help get past my anxiety and just pull the trigger?
Is the WLB / hours at MM PE (NYC) comparable to MBB? Current associate debating the move
MBB folks, how difficult is it to leave to private equity? Do certain industries have advantages over others in terms of recruitment? At what level do people usually leave? engagement manager or SA?

I'm interviewing with 4 companies and find it odd that only two of them brought up comp early in the process while the other two haven't asked once about my salary expectations even after multiple interviews. Is this pretty typical? I have been recruited to my last several roles and this is my first time ever interviewing with multiple companies at once.
