What is the best way to learn about different roles in FAANG?
I was a MBB consultant in India. I am in the US now with a AI products company.
I work well on the intersection of technology and business. I have conceptualised and deployed multiple enterprise products over the last 2 years.
I am looking to move to a bigger organization now. However I don't want to get into corporate strategy roles.
What are some other roles that could be a good fit for me?
What are typical annual base and bonus increases for MBB post-MBA associates (prior to promo manager/EM/PL)?
MBB folks how would you recommend someone to go about networking a referral? Trying to figure out how to get started, cold email LinkedIn?
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?
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?

Why is everyone here so crazy about MBB? What’s so great about working at McDonalds, Burger King or Baskin Robbins? Those people don’t seem prestigious to me…
Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting. What do you guys think about this? I would be able to predict based on your firm(mbb, big4), your experience, which role you are likely to move (Faang pm, strategy manager, move to mbb). I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
Hello ME fish. I'll be joining an MBB's Riyadh office soon, from outside ME. Just curious as to why LinkedIn shows employees at MBB in KSA being almost all being of Saudi nationality? How is diversity like in the KSA office for MBB firms? Understand this might be because the KSA offices are newer than UAE ones so can we expect this to improve in the future?
Can anyone provide some tips for getting into MBB. Currently working in rx and getting MBA part time from a T25 school.
Any advice on improving cover letters for MBB. I heard that you shouldn’t write one for McKinsey, is this true? Thank you!
MBB fish, how many tag notifications do you get? I work at a smaller company and still get tags a few times a week
What does the progression track look like for post-mba consultants at MBB? Specifically, are there notable differences in promotion timing amongst the firms? I’ve noticed on LinkedIn that several BCGers have reached principal level in 3.5 years (2 as consultant, 1.5 as PL) whereas it seems to take a minimum of 4 years but sometimes even 5 for McK to reach AP level (which I believe is the equivalent?) Is this an accurate assessment?
Recently got contacted and had a few calls with an headhunter looking for a Senior Consultant / Associate position in a given MBB office.
Question is, what would be the best way of doing in case (a) I managed to get a referral for the same office and firm or (b) got in touch with another office with the same firm that interests me more?
I think I can just close my relationship with the headhunter (no document signed yet anyway) but did not want to burn the contact or seem unpolite
Has Deloitte already closed applications for consulting? I was applying for MBB and made it to final rounds but didn’t get any offers. And now I’m worried it’s too late for Deloitte or others.
How old is too old to start at MBB as engagement manager / lead and for it to be worthwhile?
Turning 37 and feel I’ve missed the boat by about 5 years and should just keep running at Big4

I’m taking the SPHR in less than 2 months and haven’t started studying for it. How difficult is it? I’ve been in HR for 20 years and have experienced ALOT in that time, although there are always employee relations scenarios that surprise me! How much do I really need to study for this? I just can’t seem to motivate myself to do it, I’m so mentally burnt out at the end of the day from a high stress HR job, the last thing I feel like doing is studying HR!

I have 5 interviews this week for what would be a move in-house. The last of these interviews is with HR. Typically, when HR asks me for my salary expectations, they're the first interview, so I punt and say something to the effect of "I need to learn more about the position and its requirements." With HR being last, however, I can't really say that. What would you recommend I say to get them to make the "opening bid"?
