For MBB NYC offices, are they forcing ppl to come into office for local projects? Also how often you travel now on projects?
Big4/ACN consultant -> MBB Consultant/Associate I was wondering if I get promoted to a consultant from an analyst/BA at one of these firms above, can I lateral to MBB as an Associate or Consultant? Or would I need to start over again as AC/BA or get my MBA. I’d much rather get my MBA thru sponsorship and MBBs seem to have a better package for grad school compared to other firms.
I'm currently looking into joining MBB in Southeast Asia (moving from Western Europe). Are there specific language requirements apart from English (e.g., in Singapore?) Any other advice? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Hello MBB sharks,
Please mentioned your pathway to MBB.

If lateral hire, then above things + companies you worked before cracking MBB interviews.
Hi all. Can someone please provide feedback on Partners in Performance in ANZ? I would particularly appreciate if you could shed some light on the job levels there, and how they compare to MBB. Context: considering a move down under.
Any tips for writing resume for MBB? Have been speaking to a partner at BCG and he has encouraged me to apply. Wondering what to highlight and what to skip out. Role is in digital transformation. Current role is senior consultant at D. I have been at my current job since graduation and haven’t written/updated my resume in 3 years. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks 🙏
Considering a switch from MBB to FAANG in a strategy or business development role. Current TC is around $450-475k. What would be your minimum TC number you'd leave MBB to join FAANG? Would you ever leave for a reduction in TC?
Joining mbb soon & am trying to figure out ways to network my way onto a friendly team with manageable wlb. I have previous consulting experience and learned that the team you work with is much more important than the type of work. Any advice on how I could do this?
Just passed 1 year in YOE at EY-P out of undergrad and am considering a MBB offer to join their PE group for the first year. TC will be about the same for the first two years, mainly because I'll have to "reset" tenure upon joining.
Not sure if I want to join PE post-consulting or how long I'd like to stay in consulting, but any thoughts on whether the move is worth it? And for anyone who has made this move, what was your experience?
It's a west coast office if that matters. TIA!
Any insight on Carlson? Seems like MBB recruits and BCG lists them as a target? I feel like they would be ranked higher if they were not in Minnesota

How’s work actually like in MBB and Tier 2 in the Gulf? In terms of things like types of projects, firm cultures, L&D, WLB and opportunities? Is it really much worse than the West, or are some people actually pretty happy to be in the region?
Context: I work at a boutique shop in London and generally quite happy here, but have roots in the Gulf and might want to move back at some point
How’s everyone’s firms doing?
MBB, Strategy&, EYP, Deloitte, Big4, OW, RB
Is the worst over?

Hi fishes, my friend recently had a bitter experience with Dish Network. So her profile was shortlisted and they asked few questions over email. It did take good 2hrs to answer and she replied back. HM said we are good to go for interview and sent an invite. On the day of interview nobody turned up, neither they gave an update later. She did follow up for a couple of days but no response. Is there any reason why this happens ? Me being in HR field felt this to be a little unprofessional.

Why is the hiring process in this industry so backwards. I'm moving cities and recruiters in the new city "won't consider me until I've settled and I'm local." We do have SKYPE ... f@#cking hell.

Today, a recruiter asked me what my TC requirements were. I flipped it and asked what the range for the position was. We’re in allergy season in Texas. I literally choked as I went to say that my requirements were within the range they gave. Really feeling like I nailed responding in a believable way there. 👍
