If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? 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?￼
How would Alvarez and Marsal's Strategy and Performance Improvement practice in the ME compare with the top strategy firms here such as MBB,S&,Kearney,OW,RB ? (prestige, b-school applications,pay, exposure etc)
Loving the fact that I almost never think about work during the weekend. Do you guys generally protect weekends? Coming up on a final round with an MBB and was just curious. TIA!
I am a Tech Consulting Senior at PwC but my primary skill set has been in consumer and retail advanced analytics 5 yrs exp and I have a masters in the same. How should I go about moving to MBB. I am working on data management technologies and its not my thing. Not willing to go the MBA route. Any suggestions on how I can make the leap.
Met a CIO of a VC firm for black beauty brands (like my own brand) who was interested in recruiting me as a venture associate - I would directly be working with her and a contracted finance team for due diligence comp analysis etc. after calling her she said they’d want to do a 90 day project before fully hiring me for the role. The thing is its also during the cycle of other jobs like MBB that I was also hoping to apply for. Should I take the 90 day paid project is that common practice in VC?
Finishing my Masters in Finance while working at Booz Allen past 2 yrs. Looking for a transition to MBB at the end of the summer. Any advice or leads on who to speak to are greatly appreciated!! DM me
What’s the best way to approach exiting from MBB at post-MBA level to PE? Recruiters don’t really reach out at my level, but I have experience (VC) and technical background (MD, analytics) that I think there could be some funds that are a fit. Any recommendations?
Does a recent grad from a non-target school*** have any path towards becoming an analyst at a tier 1/2 strategy consulting firm prior to getting an MBA?

Software engineer. I like coding and I was actually rated pretty strong after my first review. I want to get into tech strategy though. I’m not sure if I should set my goals toward being a FAANG software engineer or a MBB tech strategy consultant. Long term goal is to reach director/CTO level
Getting this off my chest… few folks in my leadership randomly talk about how they had MBB offers out of business school but they picked big 4 strategy. 😑 Like don’t they think about how this almost sounds incredible to believe.. It sounds like they need to name drop. That’s my rant.
In terms of positioning vs competitors - particularly strategy focused firms like MBB, could our leading Operational expertise can be coupled with the strategy practice to differentiate us?...
Hi y'all, hoping to recruit for MBB full time this fall. How strong are your practices in pharma / biotech / medtech / life sciences / etc and what are key differentiating factors between the 3 firms in this line of work? Also what are the chances that you can specialize into this work relatively quickly post-MBA?
Just hoping to learn more about the firms and begin building a cohesive story for recruiting. Thanks in advance!!
Need advice. Coming up on 2 years at Deloitte. Would you go get MBA at Emory starting next year or try to break into Tier 2 / MBB and postpone/skip grad school.
From a long term perspective, which makes more sense? Option 3 would be to keep working and make a decision later at the 3-5yr mark.
Bay Area licensed producer in life accident and health Seeking a producer position in employee benefits where there is a good base salary + commissions pay structure, or a salaried position in marketing or account management/benefits consulting where I can earn 50% commissions on groups I sell in addition to my salary. These are my current options so I know it exist. I’m an account manager who is licensed and can write my own groups, and I will get 50% of the commission.

Giving notice next week - I plan to give notice to my main partner in person and call 3 others who are in another office who I have a lot of cases with. I have a bunch of partners who I have only one case with and don’t see/speak to much (and who are in another office) - is it ok just to email them? I don’t want to come off as disrespectful but I also don’t want to give notice 15 times in a row ☠️
