Will MBB retain its clout? With a halt on travel, 14hr days at home, no real foreseeable need for client site, is it really worth it? A big shift in generational values (mental health, ethics, environment, etc.) also makes me wonder how big of an impact the Purdue/ICE stories will have on new joiners. Curious to know your thoughts!
MBB aside, what's the best IT consulting firm?
I know tuck is probably better than CBS for MBB, but is it better if I wanna do MBB in NYC?

Hi! I am currently an incoming summer associate at a T2 firm and looking to break into MBB for full-time. Would love to connect, and happy to provide more details. Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company Bain & Company
Can anyone from AlixPartners share his opinion on what is like working at the firm? What are the career advancement opportunities and timings?
I’m very interested because from what I know Alix pays very well (much better than MBB) with better WLB and has great exit opportunities in PE/VC.
Career has stalled over the past 3 yrs and unclear why, or how to fix it. Fired from MBB as an experienced manager. Up til then I was a rockstar - rave reviews, early promos, etc. (Cont.)
For those that joined MBB/T2s during the pandemic, are any of you all enjoying this job? Does anyone feel like their firm has done enough to support and teach them?
how do you study mbb prep material?
for ex, w/ crafting cases: there is a free 7-day trial w/ vids. do you think it would be a worthwhile investment to make flashcards of the content in the videos, study the content, then jump into mocks, or would it be best use of time to just go thru the vids/material, and immediately jump into mocks after w/o actively studying all the principles first?
Best MBB under advertised benefits?
I need help making up my mind on where to attend.
So I have two offers on the table : Tuck vs Yale SOM. I am getting 40k scholarship from Tuck and nothing from Yale.
I'm planning on going into consulting afterwards and am not sure what school to attend. I know Tuck's group oriented teaching is slightly more geared towards consulting.
What has been making me hesitate is the global presence of what Yale has in its name.
Would you say Yale has almost equal chance of getting into MBB as Tuck?
What’s the job of EM/PL/SM in MBB? Do they create slides or review them? Are they responsible for coming up with the “answer”? How much of a project success is on them vs AP/ Partner? I’m trying to better understand the role in a project.
MBB generalists: Has the prestige opened up as many doors as you thought it would? Anything about exits that was cliche & you were able to prove/disprove?
Not sure how much $ to spend on case coach..
Do spouses have strict independence at MBB, thinking of marrying one but heard for the most part y'all can't hold most individual stocks.
One year at MBB, need to find an exit soon for personal reasons. I have no other work experience but everyone keeps telling me not to take a lower salary. Is this even possible?
Looking for experienced case partners for the next few weeks. 1-2 YOE here and probably done 100+ cases, applying to MBB.
Hi everyone! I’m going into my fourth year at UofT and will be interning at Accenture Toronto this summer. I’m looking to break into MBB consulting full-time after grad so was wondering if any folks could have a quick chat with me! Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company McKinsey & Company
Interviewing for MBB...how do I spin my tech implementation experience to strategy consulting?
I’m interested in jumping to MBB at some point, likely continuing my 10 YOE serving gov’t clients. What skills, experiences, knowledge, and expertise should I focus on improve my candidacy?

So my VP at my previous company felt bad and refused to speak to me or attend my farewell after my resignation. His reason was that I somehow betrayed his trust as he had promoted me just last year (after keeping the position open for 4 months and letting me take additional work load after the previous SM left!). Does this make any sense? I mean where does this sense of entitlement or ownership over the employees come from? No wonder the company in question is kind of facing a literal exodus!
