How much will MBB salaries go up by this summer? Last summer MBA offers were bumped to $165k? How likely is it that they will increase again? Will anyone else raise bases to stay competitive?
Do other B4 and MBB have firm initiative requirements similar to D? Are they tied to the individual’s YE performance assessment?
Hey fish! What are some typical/ideal exit opps for consultants here who focus on Post merger integration / M&A execution consulting (PMO, day 1 readiness, etc)? Assuming post-MBA. I looked into strategy & ops roles but the skill set required doesn’t really match up (they are more suitable for MBB types) and Corp dev/PE roles typically want ex-bankers or finance background. any help/insight here would be much appreciated, thank you!
Replace Goldman Sachs with MBB in this video and you get this bowl
Anyone have any thoughts on how the MBB’s PE practices vary for exit opps to PE investment teams (if at all)? BCG PIPE vs Bain PE vs Mck PE.
what's the education consulting market look like right now for the big players, MBB, EYP? Are you doing much higher ed work or farmed out to other non-education projects?
Thoughts on Consulting (MBB, LEK, CV, Putnam) vs VC/PE in terms of working hours, compensation, career growth and exit opportunities, etc?
Apologies if this had been brought up before, but in the “long run” (ie. within the next 3-4 years) how do you see the traveling business model being set up for each one of the MBB’s? What percentage of travel will it be per month? Do you think there will be more flexibility with hybrid? If you only want to be staffed on local projects - can that be better accommodated?
Anybody here have experience or currently work at MBB in Southeast Asia? Currently US-based but interviewing for a role in SEA. Wondering if there are interview differences, what projects are like and
Do MBB and big 4 consulting look for something completely different in their candidates? I’ve applied to MBB previously and reapplied this year and got invited to R1 for all three both times. However deloitte and eyp previously and strategy& this year rejected me straight so I’m just curious…
My goal is to become a change management consultant. I finished my MBA in 2018. I have work experience - it's just not directly applicable. Yesterday I spoke with a former MBB recruiter who told me I had missed the hiring cycle for next year and would have to wait until they started hiring next summer for the following year. Is this a hard-and-fast rule? Does any hiring happen before then? Student Bain & Company McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group
Do MBB recruiters ever message people on LinkedIn for generalist positions? If so, what are they looking for? Or is that just for subject matter expert positions?
Few questions on recruitment and referrals at MBB:
1)Are recruitment global?
2)Is a referral from any consultants the same as one from target office?
3)What are referral benefits from referrer/-ee
How easy is it to get into VC? PhD, 2+ years at MBB, haven’t done DD, currently Angel Investor. Super excited about supporting entrepreneurs, while making some money 💰
Can any gsapers who didn’t return or are considering not returning share their decision calculus? Is it a wrong approach to think about sponsorship as part of your salary for the next two years when weighing other offers? I get MBB, IB, and PE make more but how would you compare salary/hours per week/pressure to Deloitte?
Which MBB office travels the least? Bain NY?
What to do when one is ready for promo and company delays due flat growth / lack of projects? Switch quickly or wait for things to get better? And do mbb accept mgr and up who want to move firms?
I’m looking to transition into a career in consulting with a company(mbb). Will it make a difference if I end up in a T2 city vs let’s say Nyc or DC? Reason for career change is for more exit opportunities and better career progression.
I don't have much experience but I see people care about serving as board member for non-profit. Is that only for MBA applicants or is is good for consulting jobs too? I served on the board for a non-profit but never put that in my resume, I am currently recruiting for MBB and wonder if I should include that on my resume?
I know what the answer probably is, but do all recruiters tell you that you are amazing? Just want other people to confirm

Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
Confession: On the second page of the little notepad in my hotel rooms I always write "get out this room is haunted".
