Do consultants at MBB have to network to find projects or is the process easier? Do you guys feel the stress to find roles to avoid layoffs?
Went from big 4 advisory to a lower/MM PE Ops role. Is it worth trying for MBB if my near-future goal is to do portfolio ops at larger PE fund? I’m worried my resume doesn’t have strong enough names

Are any of the big 4 firms seen below one another? Or is it more McKinsey=Bain=Bcg > D=EY=pwc=kpmg? Purely talking in terms of prestige. Not sure if that’s even true for MBB but I’ve always wondered if “not all big 4 firms are created equal”
MBB folks: when you refer a candidate what do you look for? I feel that I have a strong background and I just need to land on that interview to win
I feel like other than traditional consulting (mbb), management consulting is overrated. Thoughts?
I’m looking to apply to Forté Conference/preMBA programs for MBB but I haven’t decided on a school yet. Are there any consequences if I put one school down but end up going to another this fall?
Is an MBA worth it? Why do 🐠 want to go? Shot at MBB? Opportunity cost? Career change? Is it worth the massive cost? To me it’s only worth it at M7.
Need help negotiating a sign-on bonus. This is difficult for me. I got an offer and I knew what the salary would be because they told me what the pay band was before I interviewed and I’m at the top of the band so no negotiation there. Before I accept the offer I’d like to negotiate a sign-on bonus because 1) I was sourced via an internal recruiter so they aren’t paying a recruiter fee and 2) I’m leaving my current company and if I stayed would get a $30k annual bonus in March.

I really don’t understand why I’m getting all this hate? The fact of the matter is there’s just more to being a desi consultant is visa issues. All topics are welcomed. If you scroll up in this bowl we rarely speak about anything besides visas and I want to change that. I don’t even know what I did to set you off and I’m not sorry for it it’s the truth. With that being said join the other bowl and speak your mind.

What is EY FAAS? Was just asked to apply for this. I am an audit manager in a regional firm, and this is my promotion year. How big of a difference in lifestyle would it be?
How do you convince yourself you're worth what you're supposed to be? 23/F/48K/CHI/almost 2 years at agency I barely feel like I'm worth this and just lucked into this but everyone says RAISE.
Partners/Associates. How does someone balance the fine line between sending follow up networking emails to people who did not respond to the first networking email (sent pre-pandemic)? Having targeted alumni of my schools, I know people are flooded with emails daily (especially partners) and it may have been poor timing as people are busy. I don’t want to become an annoyance, but I do want to try to connect with fellow alums (with hopes of a job at some point (more than 1 year from now)).
