Recently got an MBB offer. Really excited about it but start date isn’t until mid-March. How long should I wait to give notice to my current employer? It’s a large, well-known tech company but our team is pretty small and my departure will definitely cause a bit of chaos in the short term. Don’t want to burn any bridges, but at the end of the day I also know they’ll be fine. Thoughts on giving standard 2-weeks vs a bit longer, say 4?

Give your two weeks now and enjoy time off


Once everything is cleared I’d give notice when you’re okay if you give X weeks notice but they ask you to leave in 2. Also don’t give notice until any year end bonus has cleared your bank account.

Yep tell them after u get ur bag


If you're cool with your team and they'll support your growth, I say go with 4weeks to aid transition. I gave my last employer 4 months notice...even before I got the job lol...my manager was super supportive...I helped with hiring my replacement etc.

Don’t set your team up to fail. If you can work on transition materials on the down low, it will be extremely helpful. Any information that is unique to your role, I would outline. Anything helps!

Hi Sharks, Looking for opportunities/referrals in MBB in consulting/project management role.Requesting support .

Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises. Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.
