Here’s a weird question for the MBB folks - how competitive would you say you guys are, internally? I think people at ACN arent not competitive but most of us generally do want to help each other succeed. Meanwhile, I’ve heard there’s some particularly sharp elbows in MBB, especially toward the EMs…would you guys say this is true? Curious how cut throat the internal mentality is.
Will an MIS degree help for PM exits? Starting at MBB soon and I’m curious if the MIS major will give me any extra looks for FAANG and other Big Tech.
Trying to benchmark post mba comp for mbb and other tier 2s (ATK, S&, LEK, Parthenon, etc) - heard that bcg is offering 175k base. What about the others? Any news yet?
Anyone considering a move to MBB

Is it worth going to a T15 school if I currently make 97k with 3 YOE with cpa but can find another job for ~120k. Looking to pivot from B4 to MBB only.
What would you choose -
1. Exit as MBB as ASC or M with 5YOE?
2. Exit after 3 YOE at SC?
3. Exit as B4 M with 5YOE?
4. Join industry M role now w/ 3YOE, and try for big tech in 2y?

It seems like T15 MBA is a solid cutoff for MBB/IB recruiting... here is my question: what, in your opinion, are the MBAs in the 8-15 spot? I know it gets blurry past 10 so let’s hear it
MBB fish, out or curiosity, do you also have an exorbitant amount of governance / fictive roles? Examples: we have sector leads, functional leads, solution leads, regional leads, office leads, regional sector leads, regional function leads, and the list goes on with tons of internal ‚practice development‘ roles. Seems like there are so many roles out there, curious to hear if that is the same at MBB or more something coming from our B4 side
1 year in at a T2 firm interviewing at MBB as an experienced hire. Any tips beyond prepping like I did as an undergrad (except better this time to get over the MBB hump)?
Do private consulting firms like MBB have a mandatory retirement age for partners? Why? Do they get pension?
