There’s so many better companies than FAANG... MBB always get stuck in the mindset that they only exist .... if u want the best role target another high growth tech place ur a dime a dozen at FAANG, and unlike consulting tech is the most valuable asset

Yeah, will be looking at all options of course. But this question is specific to what's needed for FAANG, not to debate their merits VS other tech. Thanks for the input.

Ex-Big 4 folks at MBB: how has the experience been for you so far? Any of you been in a situation where you’re coming to a MBB in a lower role but have excelled in moving up quickly? (Or not.) Thinking about making the leap but would love to hear if the MBB hype was worth it. (FWIW: My work hours are 65-80/wk so I’m pressed to think it’ll be that much worse on the other side.)

I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
