I currently work at a big 4 firm as Management Consultant (largely Oil and Energy SL) and have around 1.5 YOE. How long should I wait to apply into MBBK? C CTC: 15LPA
I did my MBA from a non-target college (new IIM). Is it possible to get a Consultant role in MBB now or should I get more experience in here?
I work in m&a mostly doing PMI, divestiture work, and ODD. Any type of role I could move into FAANG at? Know Corp dev is usually for bankers or MBB folks
MBB consultant here, total 5 years of experience (of which 3 at MBB). Heading to HBS starting Fall 2022. Super keen on doing a summer internship in PE in-between the two MBA years. How good are my chances (conscious prior PE or IB experience is usually preferred), and what can I do to prepare (any links to resources would be appreciated)?
Hi! I’ve been consulting independently and found my own clients on projects where I created-operated-transferred, for a problem that needed to be solved or by establishing a new revenue stream, rescued dying/ delayed project to put it back on rails & by setting new benchmarks. I’ve been asked why I never tried a Big4/ MBB as I’ve got results & with big names as my clients. What does it take for an experienced (+20y, 7countries) to be hired? What is the application process? Any advice? TQ

I have 4YOE in tech implementations . i want to move around to get better pay. should I target FAANG or MBB? Primary driver to exit is better compensation . Thanks fam
How much WLB flexibility is there with MBB? As a junior level employee, do you have the freedom to step away for a few hours in the day for an appointment? What if you need to take a random Tuesday off?
Is it true a lot of people in MBB want to exit for FAANG or other big tech? If so, is MBB not worth going to if I have an exit opportunity for big tech?
180k base + 40k RSU yearly FAANG offer VS. 220k base MBB offer: which one is considered better purely from a monetary perspective? FAANG has refresher but MBB has higher bonus right?
If u apply for a role at an MBB that is focused on automotive, are u stuck in that for a bit?? Or do u get to move around?
What about if I worked in automotive stuffs and then got a masters in a year or two in something different? that would let me escape working on auto stuff right??? Maybe??
I saw this quote in a thread on fishbowl and it feels relevant to me an auto industry:
>What's it called when you accidentally become an expert in your team on that one topic you dislike?
Is it worth jumping to Deloitte (offer in hand currently) in order to position myself better for FAANG 3-5 years down the line? Other options include staying at BAH or trying to get into MBB.

Anyone willing to help with a resume review/edit? I am in advisory consulting and would like to transition to strategy preferably MBB.
Looking for advice on dealing with a boss who is extremely difficult to work for. For example, my colleague has worked entirely remotely since COVID hit in March. She had planned to make 2 trips out to her family out of state during the holidays (for Thanksgiving & Christmas) but recently requested to stay during the interim, when it looked like her apartment might be under voluntary evacuation due to wildfires. Said colleague lives alone and found it beneficial to be around family (cont below)

Need help weighing 2 ops. Long term goal is to be a product manager. I’m in consulting now and have been in product adjacent roles (proxy PO, scrum master, PMO, etc). Opp 1 - Within the same company (Fortune 100). It’s an internal data analyst role working with c-suite and international c-suite. Takes me away from product but great exposure. Opp 2 - PM role for another Fortune 100 in the industry I want to pivot to, but could potentially be lower impact at my level and up to 10k pay cut.

If generalist role as a junior, it is 100% identical to off campus experience.
May differ for specialists or very senior folks.
Yes, diff track as it is not up and out like the generalist pool. Also definitely a more narrow focus.
@acn1 - as a generalist, you probably can’t. But junior experienced hires are a fairly new thing here. Not many specialist consultants (client facing specifically) across the entire firm. The process is probably very role specific
