Hi fishes! Staring at an MBB soon! Understand this question has been raised before but I’d love to hear experiences people had with specific online courses for excel and PowerPoint and how relevant they turned out to be once you’ve started the job (eg Wall Street Prep / breaking into Wall Street has been brought up before but is it not “consulting” enough?) TIA!
For those of you who are interviewing with MBB and trying to transition from B4/ACN, are you currently in strategy roles at your respective firms?
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Hi all! Pleased to say I'll be starting at MBB in August. Anything you'd suggest doing between now and then as I have a lot of extra time and obviously can't travel. Thanks!
When someone from Accenture applied to MBB do you guys laugh or take them serious? Trying to see what my chances are of getting in.
Don’t take it otherwise, just trying to understand when someone at MBB says I work for 60-70hrs. What exactly you deliver ( definitely ppt)? Is the content takes that much time or is it the beautification of it? Only serious jokes allowed.
Is HSW worthless in the job market without MBB/BBIB/FAANG to go with it? Please show your work 🙂
What’s the feasibility of going from Big 4 to MBB by entering a Part Time MBA program (Booth/Kellogg)? Current KPMG Manager.
Will taking a Consulting Internship with Crowe hurt my chances of receiving an MBB of Big 4 offer? Should I instead be looking at a finance or tech internship next summer?
Has anybody jumped or tried to jump from Big 4 to MBB? Can it be done without MBA? 2nd year senior associate at Pwc here with 4 years at the firm.
Will MBB in your resume provide better exit opportunities than FANG (Corp dev, strategy, product management)? I realize this is a complex question, but would like to hear opinions.
Has anyone gone through an MBB Hirevue initial interview? It’s a pre-recorded interview. I’m guessing it’s behavior-based questions? Can anyone share their experience with this?
What type of exits are possible out of Finance Transformation consulting? I’m a recent grad and am really doubting my decision to start out in consulting. Not at MBB or Big4 but from a top 20 school
I’ve seen many posts say if you’re coming from MBB then you have a leg up with admissions. Anyone know how AdComs view Accenture’s strategy practice?
Any MBB life sciences professionals willing to connect? Looking for overall career guidance. Thanks 🙏

Does anyone have any advice on how to transition from a project manager (in marketing) to a product manager? I have a master’s in educational tech from Columbia’s School of Education but my resume is very marketing/advertising heavy. I’d appreciate your feedback ♥️
I had my BCG interviews yesterday (remotely) and feel I completely bombed them. Yet, I haven’t heard back from recruiting thanking me for my interest. Is there still hope?
My Truth: I recently left a large firm with great pay, terrible culture, & subtle racism for a small firm, bad pay, & great/open culture. Already looking like one of my better career decisions. (cont)
Decade+ in and realizing I would rather be either in pure play brand consulting (like an Interbrand) or in consumer/culture advisory (deeper thought leadership, trends, consulting, like a Gartner or a WGSN ish) than stay in ad agencies working on campaign development. Has anyone made a pivot like this successfully? I feel like I am at a point where there are some skills or experiences those worlds require that I haven’t been able to “go deep” on, consistently in agency brand planning world.
Anyone got a better rate of return than me on their 401k this year? I am sitting at a 17% gain for the year.
Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses. I am trying to get some ideas to incorporate this concept using multiple bank accounts/ cards. Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?
Ladies, How do you feel about dating someone with a child from a previous marriage? It's bothering me for some reason - I feel badly about it, I don't know why I feel this way. It just seems like such a special connection to have with someone and makes my connection with him seem less significant. Please no mean comments, I'm just being honest and wondering what other people's experiences are. TIA
These 2 comments in the same interview.

Never fully understood all the hype about Big 4 consulting before joining a Big 4 firm. I still don't after nearly 5 years in. Lookin' to bail. What does everyone else wish they were doing instead?
Now that many are returning to classrooms, does it worry anyone that thousands are coming into the country after testing positive for Covid and not even being quarantined or detained?
