Hi! I’m looking for referrals for MBB, Kearney, OW, EYP, S&, and AlixPartners. I'm a Canadian with an engineering undergrad, MBA, and 6 YoE in telecom. Would prefer to work in corporate or operations strategy, or org design. Please let me know if you would be interested in discussing further to determine if going through with a referral is appropriate. Thank you!

From talking to students at multiple M7 schools, it seems like all of the BB/MBB/FAANG companies recruit at most if not all of the schools . So if you're planning on recruiting for one of these, is there really a major difference in career opportunities between each school? Asking because it seems like some schools are specifically known for finance vs consulting vs tech, but if the companies are all recruiting at all these schools, the differences don't seem as pronounced to me.

9 months ago, I posted on this app that I was leaving FAANG for MBB. Every single responder discouraged me from doing it given worse WLB, less pay per hour worked, etc. I’m here to say that you were all correct. Every single one of you. I would go back in an instant if I could.

Just venting.... My entire spirit is under the weather.

And anxious, like a feeling of impending doom. I’m about to drink tea and try to sleep and try again tomorrow but wow, today really sucked and I just need to put it out there.
