Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
High perf M1 at Big4 in comm. and received Associate offer from MBB. Pay bump is somewhat ok and I get to work on something cooler but feels like a step back in career. Feeling conflicted. Thoughts?
MBB experienced hire entry level or stay at current firm and make manager in 3 months? 2.5 YOE, currently at boutique life science strategy firm. Firm willing to sponsor for MBA as well
Did anyone have a dog prior to joining their MBB, and if so, how did you manage the travel?
I have sponsorship from my consulting firm (tuition, requires 3 year commitment, definitely does not pay like MBB/T2). I got a 60k scholarship from Kellogg, should I just consider making a move to MBB/T2?
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.
Have been wondering how much FAANG product managers get paid vs MBB for a like to like year of experience. Example, 4 years out of mba one would be Principal at BCG vs level 7 PM at Amazon. What does the delta look like at 8 years? 10 years etc?
What is the typical lag time between start date and offer at MBB as an experienced hire? I was told to expect a start date in a year during off cycle recruiting. Is this normal?
MBB fish - anyone offering to do referrals for London (Analyst/Associate level)? 1-2 YOE at T2, happy to share CV/discuss qualifications. McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
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.
How often does MBB do ERP design?
How does BCG’s operations practices score as compared to McKinsey and Bain? Want to switch to MBB for operations. Need some perspective. Thank you
I heard a rumor that some partners at MBB firms (and maybe other consulting firms, too?) can hold a plane. Is there any truth to this? I know our partners’ connections are strong, but that is one crazy ask….

If you had your pick of MBB, which would you join? Running a very informal poll - like the comment of the corresponding firm below McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company
McKinsey dads: what’s parental leave time at your firm? Is there a minimum tenure requirement to take the leave?
End goal in PE career? Let’s say you make it to MD at UMM shop. How is comp compared to let’s say F500 C-suite? I’d imagine both to be 10 - 30M, but a cushier rise in F500. Am I wrong? Just trying to figure out this giant rush by so many colleagues to the buy-side
i just fired someone today
Question - Can we work as a case prep coach and get paid in India? I am on an H1B and understand you can’t have another job in US. I am no longer working with BCG and this is acceptable under moonlighting policy of my employer. If anyone has any experience, will be great! Thank you!
Has anyone actually interviewed with Guild Education, specifically for the client services role?
Further confirmation why Accenture Strategy sucks. Leadership just announced $4K “raise” for M and SM to “close gap” vs market pay. After lousy raise and bonus in Fall, this is a slap across the face!
Deloitte Digital Manager salary?
Isn’t the new Deloitte GPS comp model going to piss off high performers and make them leave and make low performers happy and encourage them to stay?
Hola! I will be exiting PwC on 8/1 and I am looking for other job opportunities. What are some companies that you have worked at that have a great culture? Also if you can help and let me know if your company is hiring that would be very helpful!
Got a green slip after Dropbox in Mumbai - need to appear for fingerprint and interview. Has anyone gone through this process?Do I need to go to the consulate for fingerprints or the biometric center?
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? Appreciate any input! 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially Chinese culture presence
I got a new job and was told that I can only roll over pre-tax 401k because the company does not offer roth 401k. I have a lot more money stored in roth 401k from my previous employer.. what should I do to keep it?
How valuable is having a B4 name on the resume? Currently at a boutique and have the option to join B4 (not KPMG) or industry. Industry would pay more for the first couple years. Wondering if B4 would be the better option for the long run
My sister is unvaccinated with no plans to get the vaccine. She is getting married this year, meaning lots of events. I am pregnant, high risk (CH mama from yesterday’s post), and can’t risk getting Covid again. What would you do? Do I ask her to get vaccinated for my/her future niece’s sake? If she doesn’t, should I sit out the wedding events?
Had a baby recently and, for the life of me, can't imagine going back to work. My husband also works extreme hours. How do you parents with demanding careers do it? I'm thinking of moving to industry.
I am truthfully too busy on my project right now to meet up with people and sometimes even reply in a timely manner. They’re not consultants and I’m not sure how to explain this over CONT
