Hit up the director of an MBB practice on LinkedIn and he responded that we should talk. Need advice on how to steer the conversation in my favour. Can I outrightly ask for a referral?
Will rerecruiting for MBB (and essentially restarting/grinding case prep and such) when I have a T2 pretty locked in just be indulging an unhealthy obsession with prestige? Struggling with whether or not it’s objectively worth it, as someone who has fallen into “prestige traps” in the past.
Do you think Apple and Amazon fight over who's the first A in FAANG like BCG and Bain over MBB?
If my goal is to grow in digital/ technology strategy work is it worth trying to jump to a MBB or a Diff T2 such as S&,OW ? I understand McKinsey Digital is the strongest for tech/digital work
Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm. Wondering what I can do to prepare myself, are there any courses, books that would help me gain some skills. I have mostly done PMO, tech implementations kind of work so far. Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.
Anyone willing to help with a resume review/edit? I am in advisory consulting and would like to transition to strategy preferably MBB.
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
Tuck vs Ross ($$) goal is MBB or big tech
If you’re a non-MBB consultant without a top GPA or top 10 undergrad, do you basically have 0 chance at HSW? Curious of the profiles of those who made it with these factors.
6 YoE in digital marketing, + 2 in business + Master's (not MBA). Not super technical, but I'm a functional subject matter expert (easily top 5% in North America, probably higher) in one DM field. I want to work at MBB and now seems like a really good time to give a try. What level should I aim for? Associate? How much time should I spend practicing cases before applying? Any specific areas to make sure I upskill to check the right box? Any tips on how to make it work?
Any partners who switched from B4 to MBB, if so what was your experience and how was the transition? Would you do it again?
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?
Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?
Analytics folks at a MBB, what’s your experience been like? What level would I come in at with 8 years of experience?
Move-up Anyone seen or know anyone that traded-up from one MBB to another MBB? Eg. A BCG PL hired as Principal at Bain; a Principal at Bain hired as Partner at McK; a consultant at McK hired a M etc

Real talk. Why doesn't Uber have a loyalty/points program? (Besides VIP, which is a joke.) I created a new budget category just to delineate Uber from other travel. Obscene how much I spend.
