Can I transition into MBB (generalist EH) role with a tech strat background? Is tech strat regarded as pure strategy experience?
How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!
Does pre-MBA T2 consulting experience help or hurt for M7 summer internship interviews at MBB? Have heard prior consulting is helpful but have also heard that MBB doesnt like “bad habits” formed at other consulting firms.
Those who want to join FAANG: don’t you think that the upward mobility is limited? Thousands of super ambitious MBB background people with top credentials joined these firms over the last decade.
Programs with full rides? 3.9 undergrad at Wharton, already at mbb, 780 gmat. Would like to go to bschool unsponsored on scholarship. Are there strong programs that offer full rides?
I just had drinks with two of my college friends who been at mbb for 3 years… Feedback was that they were lost on what to do next because they had good general skills + brand, but never went too deep on anything. Is that a real problem or do I need better friends?
What type of exits are possible out of Finance Transformation consulting? I’m a recent grad and am really doubting my decision to start out in consulting. Not at MBB or Big4 but from a top 20 school
What made you guys choose IB over consulting at an MBB/T2 out of undergrad? Just started doing M&A strategy and now am contemplating which path to pursue
Hi all! Pleased to say I'll be starting at MBB in August. Anything you'd suggest doing between now and then as I have a lot of extra time and obviously can't travel. Thanks!
Settle a debate for my friend and I: does your firm (MBB, Tier 2, Big 4 etc etc) drug test new hires for non-federal roles?
After your first job, how relevant is GPA. For context, I went to a school that is very well known for grade deflation (Deloitte had a “suggested” minimum of 3.2 here) and I studied statistics, a particularly rough major at the school. Long story short, GPA was between a 2.9 and 3.0. This wasn’t due to slacking and I’ve done well at Deloitte so far with plenty of experience to speak to. Would my GPA still block me from certain firms, like any of the MBB firms or a Tier 2 consulting firm?
Is moving from MBB to FAANG non tech roles (strategy & ops) worth it? How is the career progression?
Has anyone has experience with a firm's outplacement services? At MBB maybe? Worth it or not? Thanks!
Which firms have the fastest career path outside of MBB and T2? I know those are up or out and they must be fast. But are there other firms that are known for promoting quickly? What is the average years to partner at your firm?
Hi, I’m a Manager at a Big 4 firm. Do a lot of change management, talent strategies work. Am looking to go into MBB for a smaller firm feel. Can anyone be so kind to help me with a referral? Thank you
What credentials do you need to get into MBB. I have a 4 yr B.E undergrad and an MIS grad degree. Worked for an IT services firm for 2.5 years, Deloitte for a year and now KPMG. Any tips?
About to start the interview process. I need to practice my maths before going through the online screens. Does anyone have any feedback what the MBB screens look like and what are some online resources I can use to practice doing the math problems?
Would you take a connecting flight with your main status airline to accrue points? (1 hour layover in Charlotte). Or take a direct with an airline with whom you have no points/status?
Let me know your thoughts!
A client based in Japan had sent us a list of some Japanese texts and their English translations at our request which we needed. SM: Copy all the Japanese texts and their translations from document that client sent into a new document and send it back to client (to whom it came from) and ask them if they are correct. Me: Why are we doing that? SM: Just to ensure that we have validation in an email that client sent these translations to us. Me: Facepalm 🤦🏻♂️

Me and my husband have about 70k saved. Our monthly expense is around 2k . No debts. Monthly income is around 13k. Is buying a house worth 1 million too risky ?
Junior associate at a mid-sized reputable law firm that is not strict about hours. I am consistently under hours due to lack of work (goal is 1800, I bill 1200 on average). Love the partner I work for and learn a lot from them but they don’t push enough work down, despite me asking for it. Any advice?

I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that we’re not gonna be required to come back in the office come September with the delta variant picking up speed￼
Reading "Straight to Hell" and saw this great tweet to be shared during this Christmas season - " Every year, children learn a valuable life lesson: Santa loves rich kids more."
Normally pay my credit card off in full each month but find myself with a 10k balance (mix of medical, a/c repair, other unexpected events). I have 15k in savings, but I'm uncomfortable using most of it until closer to bonus time (wife stays home and I have 2 kids). Is this the right approach? Paying interest doesn't make sense either. Helpful advice only please
Backup plan: if I don't get the promotion I'm going to quit and travel the world for a bit. (... That actually kinda sorta makes me hope for not getting it!)
My friend is starting to resent me and my experiences. I may not make a lot of money but I make a decent amount where I can afford nice fancy dinners or firm pays for them. My friend hasn’t had any luck finding a job and works at a grocery store. Has anyone else had friends resent them for being successful ? How did you handle it ?
Not dick measuring but really curious on what the % raise you've gotten the past 2 years. Gotten 4% and 3% here and feeling like I'm getting screwed over.
