Any suggestions on how to find referral for FAANG/MBB? Tried message recruiter on LinkedIn not much reply:(
Who has transitioned from MBB to Private Equity? What is the pay difference and would you do it again?
Anyone besides me leave the Big 4 or MBB and get pestered by GLG to do 1099 project work? They are relentless.
I recently received two offers: (1) Deloitte (S&O); and Accenture (Technology Consulting). Which would be more aligned to MBB/FAANG?
How’s the tech scene in Chicago? Anybody jumping from MBB to Tech / FAANG? Or do you have to go to SF/Seattle for the 💵💵💵?
What are some of the best consulting firms for a software engineer? Is MBB still considered elite in this area too?
From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.
Has anyone exited to a FAANG equivalent (uber, airbnb, Tencent) from Big4, then further exited into MBB? Interested in seeing if it’s a possibility
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
How does Partnership work? Do you really need to buy into it, if so how much is the buy in and what are the perks of getting admitted to the partnership? Asking for both, Big4 and/or MBB.
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
Out of curiosity- are MBB and Big 4 sold out? I am hearing mixed reactions..ZS is fully sold, Deloitte is firing, Mck is more busy than ever before....what’s the word on the street
For those Tier 2 folks that left for MBB, what has been the difference so far? Will you advise others to do it, especially if doing great at T2? If your goal isn't "partner", does this change the DMP?

Looking to move to MBB from Big4 consulting. Any MBB folks willing to offer advice for a successful switch or a referral?
I’m bad at interviewing bc I can’t look at charts and come up with insights on the spot (it takes me a few minutes to process). But that doesn’t mean I’m bad at critical thinking. I feel like the interview process for MBB is flawed
Would you leave a big 4 to go to smaller company? This is in consulting. At current company on partner track but could be 5-7 years and at smaller company ($1b rev) it would be 1-2 years. Partner comp is similar (top Partner obviously make alot more at big4). 75% raise. Lobe my current company and team. Nervous company is too small and staff may be lesser skilled. Would you move? Nothing is guaranteed of course on Partner track. Would you only leave if it's Partner role not just MD?

When do you think it’s the best time to ask my firm to be remote only/ work from a diff country? During my review? Right before I move? Moving isn’t an option and I have enough money saved up in case they fire me on the spot. Just thinking maybe there’s a time to ask where they won’t fire me right away and don’t know if I should take advantage of the market now or wait as long as possible. I’m a 2018 grad specialty corp.
