What is the difference between getting life sciences consulting expertise at a life sciences boutique firm vs at bigger generalist firms (MBB/big 4)? How are the projects different and what type of experience do u gain?
FAANG good MBB bad, am I doing it right
How hard is it to get carry and/or make partner at a PE firm? Does it pay more than MBB at non-partner levels?
Dear MBB fishes, requesting your immediate guidance on data engineering practice. I currently have to pick one between FAANG vs MBB. Same base but 25K RSU difference. Please help me with your insights! Moving from industry in Midwest region.
Darden vs Johnson vs Ross ( No dollars) Post MBA: Location No-Preference MBB Consulting/ Product Management @ FAANG Note: I'm an international on an H1B Visa TIA!
Who wants help getting into MBB? =)
I want to exit to MBB but if that’s not a possibility what are the next best consulting firms? Looking for at least midsize firms (non-boutiques).
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼
Seems like a lot of questions on partner comp and net worth. Here is the rule of thumb: 1) Big 4 partners make $600K to $1.5m based on seniority and practice. 2) MBB partners make $1m -3m based on seniority Typically your expenses are between $100-300k. Add Taxes to it, that’s the amount you add every year. About 6-10% return yearly on the savings. So net worth of partners are probably between $3m to $20m depending on which company and seniority, investment profile, etc. Where am I wrong?
I have an engineering background, graduated last December, and accepted MBB over FAANG (product design & manufacturing engineering offers) . This bowl’s focus on exiting consulting into FAANG (cont)
How does MBB view people who join and stay for just a year? Specialist (non generalist - data science) if it matters. Do they hold it against you? Due to a personal situation I may have to leave but I'm not interested in staying at my current job for another year.
Know it’s a long shot but any McKinsey or MBB folks willing to case practice with me? Specifically the quantitative part…did not do very well in my recent coaching session on the quant question.
Is it any easier to get an offer from MBB as an undergrad intern rather than a full time (out of UG) hire?
Replace Goldman Sachs with MBB in this video and you get this bowl https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx4poQw1mZo/
Started at a T2 consulting firm not too long ago. Worth switching to MBB to break into PE?
I’ve realized most people actually hate the big D, because lots of the people hired & top talent were near misses at MBB (final round etc.) and they resent the firm because of it. It’s a sad reality but it’s true.
Hi! Everyone, I am a PhD turned consultant with 2 years at big 4. I was wondering if there are openings at MBB that I can apply to? I am a molecular biologist by training and do life sciences consulting in the cell and gene therapy domain.

I have come to a point where I can’t stand with the boring work at my current company. 2 years of mostly administrative type of work (project-driven) here were just a total waste of to time... Any advice on how I build up my resume if I want to stay in consulting (REAL consulting)? What obstacle I should expect? Truly appreciate any advice/thoughts. Thanks!
What’s the best way to find roles at start ups? I’ve been applying to my same type role and have been contacted for contract consulting work, but these roles only make 10 - 15% than what I make now. I want to go to industry and I’m really interested in tech roles, I just don’t know where to start.

Deloitte: I see there is an HR policy that allows you to go 60-80% whenever you want to/in any role so long as there is a business case. Does this ever happen in consulting? Is it more likely to be approved in certain groups/with certain skills? I’m thinking it might be feasible to stay here if I could could go on a reduced schedule after baby 2. If that’s something I could work towards and prepare for in the year or so prior, I’d like to set myself up well for it! Any insight is appreciated!
Tonight had a fellow healthcare professional refuse to help because not my patient. I cannot stand that attitude and it’s everything wrong with the healthcare system. I just want to scream
From one HR to the other - what do we think about the level of diversity shown in this vid released by my employer earlier today? I think they‘ve done a nice job trying to feature a good mix but might‘ve actually „overdone“ it? Might be cause I’m used to male-only engineering lol https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6871427562401275904
