How is MBB Canada pay compared to US?
Anyone interview with MBB and get that SOVA online assessment? It was pretty difficult for someone who didn’t get an MBA/write the GMAT… Does the firm typically get back to you if you don’t qualify to move to the next round? Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
Have you noticed different MBB Business Units treating candidates poorly? I.e. BCGs Gamma and Platinum will ghost candidates for weeks, while their Core BCG counterparts are handheld through process?

Generalist🐠at MBB: do corp dev roles at FAANG, or operational VC/PE roles, care that you were a “generalist” when exiting? I’ve been approached for data analytics roles at MBB (some specialized), but everyone tells me to go generalist when starting....
Can somebody please explain to me why MBB and other top consulting firms are so adamant that you have an MBA? I majored in accounting, finance, and operations management at a top 10 undergrad business school and then got my masters in information systems from the grad school program. I took multiple MBA courses as electives when getting my masters and it seemed like those classes were very basic and easy. Idk if I would learn anything in an MBA program that I hadn’t already learned in undergrad
I recently received two offers: (1) Deloitte (S&O); and Accenture (Technology Consulting). Which would be more aligned to MBB/FAANG?
Which is a better overall experience for future full time jobs/long term trajectory? MBB internship or Google BOLD internship? Interested in a variety of things including product/strategy at a tech company, but also areas like PE and non-tech strategy/ops.
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?

How to do stop comparing yourself with others? I struggle a lot with my path in life and my career choice. I didn't come from a wealthy family, and was a bit of a late bloomer. Even on fishbowl there seems to be a focus on a great career is MBB, Investment banking or tech company vibe.
At what level and salary do EMs exit into FAANG? I'm a recent EM at MBB and I'll look to get out of consulting soon. Can one expect L6/L6 at 300K for bizops/strategy roles? Top 10 mba +2 years MBB
Will getting 2 years of experience as a strategy & ops manager in financial services pigeon hole me in that industry. Not in love with the space but think it could compliment 2 years at MBB quite well. Not too eager to stay in consulting and get promoted
Does MBB or IB banks ask for gmat/ GRE scores from 1st yr MBA students interviewing for internships? Or even full-time roles? I’ve heard a lot of conflicting information...
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.

What type of self help strategies do individuals actually find helpful when you feel burn out or stuck in a rut? Any books, apps, meditation, podcasts, etc, others find helpful? I've done therapy and it has definitely helped this past year with covid and a marriage separation, starting to feel like I'm making progress and want to keep up the momentum. Looking to see what type of self help others find actually beneficial and would love to use that to help others stuck in burn out too

When should I consider switching firms? High performer at big 4 for a year and a half with only a 2% raise and nothing really feeling like I’m rewarded for the long hours/weekends and holiday hours I put in.

Don’t know if I should stay somewhere with partners thinking that I already have a foot out the door
