Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Please help my non-MBB self understand this, everyone keeps saying MBB has set salaries for each level, how does this work if everyone is coming in at different salaries? Is it worth the pay cut?
I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!
What do you think will be the impact of this rapid hiring for MBB? MBB is hiring so rapidly. When it cools down, do you think MBB will realize they over hired? Will it become harder for associates (post MBA) to get promoted? Will it become more competitive for Associates to get staffed on projects they want to be on? Will there just be too many consultants at the Firm and a mass layoff? McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group
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?
MBB Experienced Hire 🐠 - did you have strategy experience when you applied to MBB? I have some Tech, and M&A experience. Do you think I can be a good candidate (applying at Assoc/Consultant level).
MBB 🐠, what is the most valuable piece of advice / feedback you have received while at your firm? Starting soon and feeling slightly anxious! Thanks :)
Working in Europe temporarily. Have an option to do Executive MBA, it’s around 70-90k Euros for an year. Another option I have is doing part time PhD in Management. It’s around 35-40k Euros for 4 years. Any thoughts on which one would be more useful? Currently work in a T2 in their digital practice. Had plans of shifting to MBB 3-4 years back but lost interest after
I’m a new MBB partner. I was heads down focused on this goal for the last few years. Now that I’m here, I’d appreciate any advice for how I should think about my early partner years. How do I figure out what my next goal should be? How should I work / prioritize differently? I would especially love to hear stories of how other partners approached their first few years. Thanks in advance!
🐠 fam - how’s FAANG sr prod manager screening different than consulting manager role with MBB? Anything out of the usual? Have an interview coming up soon and help will be great!
To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
For MBB interns who finish their summer internships and receive return offers, can they directly transition to FT? Or do they need to wait for some period of time

I’m trying to figure out what my in hand paycheck would be after all the ore tax deductions (benefits, 401K, etc) when I work in NYC and live in NJ. Is there a calculator that can help with this?
How much total comp raise would you need to go to another big 4, equally reputable in the space. They claim that they will reduce your travel from 80% to 25%, which is a big plus for me.
I’ve been at a startup for a month now. I’m pretty certain my co-manager has been purposely withholding information from me when I ask for clarity on a process or general company information. Other than that, I like my role and company so far. What’s the best way to approach a situation like this? Pretty certain it’s because of insecurity and wanting to look better but I really am not a fan of these antics and it makes me question how long I want to stay here.
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
Just got invited to United Global Services. Super excited and kind of depressed at the same time.
Do you think Apple and Amazon fight over who's the first A in FAANG like BCG and Bain over MBB?
