At least one additional assumption would be required to make that leap...

Everything is the same as everything else in our meaningless, late-stage capitalism line of work.

I assume everything except compensation? Beyond that, I could see how projects could be similar. Pls fix, difficult clients, long hours, slides & spreadsheets are the 80% of the job that is similar.

Is MBB worth it? I’ve never been in mbb or big 4. Just smaller consulting firms. Have a competing offer between FAANG and MBB. I’m in tech and FAANG is more interesting for my career as well as preferred work culture. However, I’ve seen a lot about MBB here and kind of want to join just so I can say I was in MBB. Is it gonna be killer hours? Promotion politics? Biases on my lack of education? hoping to hear what others have to say
