What’s the best travel policy by firm? We have nothing but hoping to be upgraded... Flying coast to coast on economy every week is exhausting... I assume MBB allows first class flights. Big 4?
Better to be a big fish in a small pond or a little fish in a big pond for MBA apps (I.e. superstar at B4 or mediocre/below average at MBB; metaphorically speaking ofc, ik the B4 is technically bigger in terms of size but you understand the point in terms of competitiveness)?
Federal MBB🐠, were you given the opportunity to work any commercial projects your 1st year with the firm (if desired)? Had a final round years ago but friend advised me to stop the process given passion was retail. At the time switching practices was unheard of, have the times changed? Bridges never burned, debating re-kindle conversations...
STARTUP FOUNDERS and FAANG: would you rather hire MBB with 3-4 years of exp or Tier 2 with 5-6 years? If you could isolate those variables and everything else held constant.
Duke MBA to MBB - how likely?
How much can MBB Partners make in a year? What is the differential with a PwC or Deloitte Partner?
Is 1 month enough prep for MBB round 1? How should I focus my type on behavioural vs. Case. Should I be networking with current consultants too or it’s more just upto my performance
Why is ACN strategy unnecessarily selective? They only recruit from a select few schools (no exceptions) even if at another top school. MBB/Deloitte/OW/Parthenon/LEK/ATK have much greater flexibility.
What is the typical lag time between start date and offer at MBB as an experienced hire? I was told to expect a start date in a year during off cycle recruiting. Is this normal?
What is an acceptable age to complete an MBA program if the goal is MBB or T2 strategy consulting post-MBA?
I'm a young (under 30) SM at Big 4 & like everyone here would like to make the move to MBB. I recognize a title change is likely but I don't care about titles. My question is how to make the change?
Any inputs and personal experience comparing the data science practices of Deloitte, Accenture, KPMG and MBB(quantum black, Gamma in particular)?
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?
How likely is it for an analyst at a top economic consulting firm to lateral into an MBB or even a top 5 strategy consulting firm?
Considering making a switch from Big 4. Comments to share on bonus this year and in a normal year? Culture?
My partner and I are thinking about moving to NYC! Are there any CW jobs there right now or is it totally oversaturated from layoffs?
Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy? I get the RFP process is painful, having done it in other industries myself, but the way I've seen most people sell in these firms seems mediocre for the amount of support that gets thrown at these opportunities. Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.

For anyone that went from a BDR role to a BDR manager role, how did you make the transition? I have 4 years of BDR experience unofficial team lead experience but no other leadership experience yet. I do not want to become an account executive so this seems like it might be the best path for me at this point to get to the next step in my career. Advice?
Anyone know how the global Visa pitch is going?

When your boss gives you 48 hours (clock hours not billable hours) to produce a viable objection to a MTD/compel arbitration in a complex commercial lit case, which is not my practice area, what kind of result is he expecting? From scratch, no template.
Just received a COBRA insurance letter from current employer - recently got hired by this employer. I’m confused, I thought COBRA was offered after you resigned or are laid off?
Getting ready to do hard pull on credit report for mortgage application. My better half is in 700-719 range (lenders will take lower score between us). What do we think is the better option to increase her score—increase credit line at current credit card, apply for new credit card, or do nothing? Thanks in advance!
