Is it any easier to get an offer from MBB as an undergrad intern rather than a full time (out of UG) hire?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
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.
What’s the wlb/culture at firms outside MBB/Big 4? Been at Deloitte for a couple years and am ready for something different. Thinking OW, LEK, Kearney, or others you know of.
To those in non-MBB: Would you rather have an offer in hand right now for MBB or FAANG pm? Assume it’s a lateral transition.
Any suggestions on how to find referral for FAANG/MBB? Tried message recruiter on LinkedIn not much reply:(
Have around 2YOE in B4 consulting. Debating whether to apply to Bschool next year or recruit for MBB/T2 strategy consulting. What factors should I be considering? Interested in strategy for the skill set to be more marketable for PE or tech companies
Are paid resume checks worth it? Some cost upwards of $300, others much less… I’ve been working on my CV for a while for experienced hire MBB apps but don’t know if I have blinders on when it comes to missing stuff. At the same time, I’d rather not waste my money

Does MBB, Strategy&, LEK, ATK etc allow rotational programs in different countries (London, UK, etc)? How competitive are those rotations to get into?
Whats the timeline for MBB background checks i.e. when does it start relative to accepting the offer and how long does it take? Accepted an offer with a February start date and want to get it over with ASAP. One last thing standing between me and putting in my notice 🙏
