McKinsey & Company Bain & Company MBB folks, I’m looking to get into consulting in next few months and would like to know if you can provide me with any resources to learn:
Which 2 Tier Partner/MD track is the best, besides MBB?
I have offers from AlixP (MD), AtK, and OW (Partner).
Any insight welcome - mostly care about long-term trajectory/sustainability and brand recognition if I decide to move to industry in 7-10 years from now.
What do associates at VC firms make?? In Toronto… I’ve got 4 years of exp at MBB consulting & currently a product manager at a startup
Is moving from MBB to FAANG non tech roles (strategy & ops) worth it? How is the career progression?
Anyone here who made, or know of anyone who made, a transition to MBB from big law? Is so, what was it like? Hoping to learn about the transition, growth paths, how much you liked the work relative to law, and any other relevant considerations. V-30 3rd year considering whether the option is worth pursuing.
Are MBB firms hiring for Dubai office?
I know this might be the wrong bowl to ask, thinking of doing a MiM instead of working at Big4 consulting after undergrad. Thoughts?
Goal is to break into MBB or IB and then leverage that to transition to PE.
I am applying for MBB firms in the next month for full time July deadlines. I’ve been prepping off and on since February but now I need to hit the ground running for the last month. Does anyone have any tips or general structure I can use to be the most efficient and effective with my case prep for the next month?
I want to make sure I’m not wasting time with pointless studying.
So Altman clearly beats out MBB in some sectors and is trying to position themselves as an MBB or perhaps tier 2 equivalent, but they’re just not matching the salaries. Why were Analyst salaries only raised to $95K when my friends at big firms (not just tier 2 but also MBB) will be making $100-120k as second years?
How many years back do background checks go, especially at the MBB? Is it the usual 5 years, or more than that?
Joining MBB soon, what is the best way to collect all the points? What cards/programs do ya'll recommend
This is blowing up in the MBB bowls, but having personally been part of these engagements last year, I found most of it to be a valid critique (although it under attributes our work, since so much of it is purposefully opaque at times).
Hi MBB 🐠, I’m curious how staffing works at your firm. As a(n) associate/consultant how much autonomy/choice do you have in selecting projects? Is it relatively easy to ask for a project in a given sector, industry, or practice area? What are the factors that determine the breadth of projects available to you, and your ability to be selective?
Upcoming Strategy& interviews. How difficult are the cases? On the same level as MBB cases? Strategy&
Have any US 🐠 gone abroad for their MBA? Looking at LBS / HEC. Pros, cons? Not looking to exit into MBB, FAANG.
Friends, I’m 25, entering my third year in MBB, and I’m so burnt out (I’ve averaged close to 80 hours / week since joining and hate the culture). I’ve always had a passion for public interest law, have worked at an impact litigation firm, and am convinced that going to law school is the answer. I’m afraid that without a big scholarship, I’ll land in big law to pay off loans and will be in the same situation I’m in now (with 100k+ debt). Any advice? Thank you!
Joined Deloitte mid-2021 so I’ve been here less than a year in their Ops Trans practice. Really was hoping it would be more impactful than just retooling a spreadsheet over and over and over for the client to use. How long should I stay so it’s not a red flag before moving to another firm? For context, I’d hope to go to MBB next if at all possible
How much harder is it really to recruit into MBB US from INSEAD/LBS? I *want* to do the European MBA but I feel like I *should* do the M7
My experience thus far (5 years) is on the private side of investing (private equity, private credit....) but I’d like to transition into a business development / relationship focused role versus modeling and analytics. What qualities in a role/firm would you recommend I look for when assessing new roles and opportunities?
Found this great article about negotiation. It’s a bit lengthy but they’re definitely a lot of gems in there. Happy reading!

Hi! I am a recent law school graduate who started her first job remotely during the pandemic remotely. I have had concerns about the following:
1. How do I build relationships with my coworkers and managers? Since the pandemic people have been moving farther away from the office making happy hours difficult.
2. How do I know that my performance is ok? In my office, I handle cases independently so I do not have an opportunity to see other attorneys or their work products. Tia
Recent lateral into BL from regional firm and in a specialist area. About to close out my 2nd full month and think I’ll eekk out 100 billables. I’m hoping that’s just because of year end general slowness. Any idea when I should expect to be fully ramped up? I’m worried how the first full year will go if Jan/Feb I stay at 100 hours and won’t be able to hit required min billables.

I’m looking to formally pivot to HR. My experience has been a jack of all trades, operations, some HR, some finance, etc. I’m currently a Director of a federal agency that I’ve been with for 7 years. I’m looking to transition back into the private sector. Would a SHRM-SCP help with the transition and will the certification make a difference?

Hi Everyone, any insights on the client round interview at CGI for Business Analyst position? Please share your thoughts.
I had my first round of interviews with Mckinsey last Friday. the first case was a disaster but the second case + both of the PEI were quite good. The thing is, my other lead progressed very well, it's also in the Private Equity space, an Investor Relations manager role, boring but good money. they pressed me to go through all the process by the end of the week but I won’t be able to advance much with McKinsey by then…Super stressed, what should I do?
McKinsey & Company I’m curious about McKinsey & Company and their Periscope team. Is it really a separate org that only does back-end? How friendly is it to techies who want to retain work-life balance?
