Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
Anyone have advice for verbalizing your value proposition? Not specific KPIs from projects, but general description of what you bring to the table? I’m an ex MBB generalist; I still struggle with this
Do MBB offices in Philly have a greater proportion of life science work than other offices?
For a strategy-esque (non-PM) career trajectory in FAANG/tech, what’s the comp trajectory look like? Can one ever reach MBB partner-like comp? MBB’s pay trajectory is too good to leave, but maybe I’m being naive
Is it recommended to get two full years of consulting experience before looking for a move elsewhere...for more comp (say to another Big 4, industry, attempt at MBB or FAANG)? Already have 8 yoe in the DoD space outside of consulting. And about 16 months of consulting exp
Career trajectory for MBB vs PE megafunds? Is it harder to make partner at PE firms compared to at consulting firms?
Anyone want to skype prep case interviews for a month or so? UG FT recruiting, intern at T2 this summer but trying to get MBB :)
Does MBB have a GPS practice? If so, where do they recruit from for experienced hires? Big4, Booz, government itself?
Hello fishes. Curious to know your thoughts on case prep program like management consulted? Has anyone been successful landing an offer from an mbb or boutique firm after going through their services? It seems a bit pricy for me and I was hoping to get insights before spending $$$$
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
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 🤣
MBB folks, what’s the glamour with FAANG to you? I ask because I have done multiple strategy projects for/with FAANG, and could likely get an offer, but I still want MBB 🤨 Am I missing something?
Recently got an offer from MBB, but having a fear that ill have a hard time doing well because im really terrible at ppt. How long does it take to get proficient, any tips?
For those who worked both at ACN Strategy and at MBB, how is the talent pool difference? Is it pretty drastic?
Anyone here from MBB in Toronto willing to connect. Moving to Canada for personal reasons and would love to hear more about the industry and practice
Currently a software engineer at FAANG (four years out of college) interested in getting involved in tech private equity. To reset my career, what is the most efficient route to get there? MBB -> PE?
Hey all - is the CAMS cert BS? I’ve been in FinCrime consulting for 5 years. Leaving now for analytics fincrime role at a major FinTech. Wondering if it’ll help me long term especially with the tech side experience. Thanks!
Hey guys. Really discouraged on my journey in big 4. I feel like I am so stupid. I am on a big team and where communication is not great, my client is complex as they’re FS. I didn’t want to do FS for that very reason as Im not interested. Im lacking in terms of knowing the business and technically too. I had been on path on doing good but now its way below that. Im sad and lost maybe I am not in a service line for me as Im in IT AUDIT. I wish I was smart enough feel like Im gonna be put on PIP
I have been in Risk Advisory for about 5 years but I have been feeling extremely bored with the work and I am currently contemplating my next career move. What are realistic career opportunities for me excluding technical accounting, internal audit and compliance? Would obtaining an MBA help my career prospects?
Thoughts on news of so many employees going on strike? Will they increase benefits and wages across the board?
Currently in Strategy for a big firm but considering the benefits if going boutique. Any thoughts?
Thoughts on potential exit to Mid-Cap Cybersecurity company for a product data analyst job vs. privacy program manager at Facebook. Both jobs have very similar salaries but Facebook has sightly better benefits. Would like to end up at Microsoft or Google long term but am worried about Facebook being a resume killer given recent news. For reference, have worked at Deloitte for 2.5yrs in the Cloud Sec space (more strategy than tech)
How long after KPMG phone interview is it acceptable to follow up with recruiter on "next steps?" (The next step is the in person interview..) it's been about 10 days since phone interview 😰
Has anyone found value in the “Josh Bersin Academy” membership? They are offering 20% off an annual subscription so my interest is piqued.
Deloitte is to consulting what KPMG is to accounting. The rest of the big 4 are the Grant Thorntons of consulting. Don’t @ me.
Which is better in terms of comp - consulting(big 4) and making it to partner or exit to FAANG for product or strategy roles. Pls share market figures for 10 yoe
