Anyone work at both MBB and Big 4 in their career (i.e. the McDeloitte combo)? How drastically different was the average level of talent? Were there any dumb McK's you thought would struggle at McD's?
MBB consultant here post-MBA (started pre-MBA). What are the best PE Ops roles (other than KKR Capstone) that like consultants? And at what entry point do they target consultants (e.g. Consultant level, manager level, etc.) and what level are they brought in as?
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
WLB in MBB India - can folks share their views on which among MBB has better WLB in India? Specifically in the Operations / Supply Chain practice
Hello fellow MBB fish! I had a question I am hoping to get insights on. I accepted an offer from McKinsey in NYC and was supposed to start in March, which I now pushed to May.
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?
My SO is in MBB in Canada and just made an EM. She is getting burned out and wants to quit. But doesn’t major in a particular industry and has mainly worked in strategy with government. We moved to canada a year ago so done have a strong network here. How should one go about exploring exist strategies in such a situation.
Looking at you MBB & FAANG
Brand name versus type of experience. Assume experience at the brand name will be less relevant to what I want to do long-term. The “brand” in this case is not Big 4/MBB
Anyone from OW (or anywhere not MBB) willing to pass on a UG resume for a Black female looking for full-time? (assuming recruiting for FT is still open)
How large are the MBB transactions services practices (LDD, FDD, ABL)? Do they use dedicated resources at the analyst/senior analyst level or generalists from the broader firm and is it possible to get into those groups as an outside hire?
Goldman increasing base entry pay by up to 30% must be a bad news for consulting industry. Thoughts?
What are MBB bill rates? Rough estimates?
On getting into FAANG. For those who made the switch, what are the typical roles from, say, MBB? How did you go about it? What's needed on the resume if I'm planning 12 months out? Lvl and pay?
Currently an undergraduate intern at Amazon looking to transition to MBB/T2 in NYC. I go to a semi-target on the west coast and but would love any help i can get. I have a 4.0 and I’m a STEM major - but last year when i recruited i didn’t get any 1R. anyone help?
MBB - aside from each other, who are your main competitors in the strategy consulting space? McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
If you’re at the post mba level at a T2 strategy firm, would you still need an mba to be considered for post mba roles at MBB?
For those roles in non strategy such as risk or implementation, does any of the mbb recruit out of non targets? I'm a master's student in business analytics in a non target in NYC, and I really am interested in an implementation/ risk consulting at MBB. ( Different from big 4 risk)
Don't you love it when you work for a sick firm and then you find out that Jon Snow dies AGAIN in season 7. Btw spoiler alert! But shit man. Read the books, he dies again for good. Work sucks. Ahhhhh

I have worked in the HR space for the past 9 years, however most of my experience has been in Talent Acquisition. I do want to move into a People Operations/Generalist role. I’m planning to go for a HR certificate but unsure if I should go for a PHR or SHRM. Please advise!
What is happening over at BCG and McKinsey? Every other post is about people interviewing there! Sounds like a huge ramp up.
Has anyone interviewed for a data specialist or product development position at YipitData? Looked over Glassdoor and saw there is a substantial take home assessment. I wanted to see if anyone could verify and share their experience. Thank you!
Hello! Trying to get ready for baby girl 2 in January. Ours will be 5 years apart and I feel a little a little rusty. Any products that we must have for this time around?
How much money do you need to make a year to afford a $3 million dollar home, pay for 2.5 future children’s private school education, vacation well, and live and retire comfortably? (I have no students loans or debt and $650k in stocks + a modest amount in 401k. I’m 26.)
Hi! Anyone works in Accenture/Globant/Infosys/Wipro/Everis/IBM/Deloitte or other IT services companies and can tell me how long are the maternity and paternity leaves? And any other benefits regarding these leaves. Thanks!
So I’ll be receiving a ~120k USD lump sum next spring. If you were in my shoes, would you: A) Purchase a ~350K home (in Orlando) with 20% down. Remaining 50k in stock market B) Just DCA it all into market Further context: Will likely be at grad school for 1.5-2 years following that. Will have an income from scholarship stipend but it'll only cover expenses. Also unsure how that'd work with mortage application if I don't have an ability to provide proof of income.
Thinking back to when I was in school. What do teachers have to do now that they didn't 20-30 years ago? What do they need to provide now that they did not have to provide back then? I don't recall buying anything than pencils/paper/folders. We covered our used books with newspaper or paper bags Classrooms were simple, not every inch of wall space was covered in charts, etc. The districts/teachers supplied nothing extra. What changed that teachers have to spend their own $ now?
Interesting news from our Consultant Cousins.... Fired Deloitte employee sentenced in attempted murder of ex-boss: http://www.star-telegram.com/news/local/community/northeast-tarrant/article149830554.html
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
Is it worth joining Accenture Strategy as a Consultant (L9) with 6 YoE? How is the quality of projects ? What is work life balance like? How about base salary, bonus, perks?
What are the requirements to promote from analyst to senior analyst? I’ve been with Deloitte for two years now and am wondering how I go about making myself promotable. I don’t have a CPA, CFE, etc. Is one of those required?
To all you lovely 🏳️🌈 fish, wishing you a happy, healthy and restful holiday season filled with love❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
