MBB folks at Google Cloud S&O- how do you like the work? Is the work too much Ops focused?

Not in Cloud S&O but I’m in partnerships S&O and work with a number of them. Definitely a heavy Ops component at lower levels but it decreases the higher up you go. Anything L6 or over you’re primarily doing strategy work. It’s fun and definitely better hours than consulting. I work 40 hours max and there’s a good variety of projects.

Is consulting as advertised when it comes to career acceleration? Personally, I am starting to doubt it. It feels like the skill sets are a bit dated and the world has moved on. Also, we get put on so many random engagements it’s hard to build tangible skills. I am talking big 4, MBB is a different game.

Are tucks MBB numbers really that good? I saw a student on Reddit say about 35 mbb internships were granted in their year out of about 150 applicants (70-90 interviews per firm). Not sure what to make of this. Additionally, is it true that the battle is to get interviews and once you get one, then it’s just a matter of you performing (I.e., you’re no longer competing against classmates)?
