Anyone willing to help with a resume review/edit? I am in advisory consulting and would like to transition to strategy preferably MBB.
Been in MBB for about six month, I can’t seem to get use to the 65-70 hr work weeks 😣 even an easy day leaves me exhausted. Anyone else feel this way?
Did you all have to formally request your SAT, ACT, GMAT scores and send them into MBB after you got an offer?
HYP grad with summa, MBB, 750+ GMAT, but weak extracurriculars - how likely is one of HSW?
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’re a non-MBB consultant without a top GPA or top 10 undergrad, do you basically have 0 chance at HSW? Curious of the profiles of those who made it with these factors.
What's the earliest in someone's tenure you've seen them fired from MBB and why? (Looking for validation that the feeling like I'm doing a sub-par job, but trying to be coachable, 7 months into my job doesn't equate to getting fired in the next 5-17 months...)
Anyone taken the pay day to switch between competitors (ACN, Deloitte, PwC, etc.)? If so, what kind of raise / bonus did you get? I'm a new consultant making ~$95k. Also interested in MBB figures.
To those of you in MBB, how do you treat yourself with the wealth you're making? Champagne with your Maccas? Constantly ordering Grab/ubereats/deliveroo is a privilege isnt it? (Assuming lockdown situation is in place)
For MBB interns who finish their summer internships and receive return offers, can they directly transition to FT? Or do they need to wait for some period of time
MBB in Singapore, are you still recruiting foreigners that need an EP or is it only Singaporeans/PR now and for the foreseeable future? Would be interested to apply as an experienced hire.
Which firms have the fastest career path outside of MBB and T2? I know those are up or out and they must be fast. But are there other firms that are known for promoting quickly? What is the average years to partner at your firm?
I’m a new MBB partner. I was heads down focused on this goal for the last few years. Now that I’m here, I’d appreciate any advice for how I should think about my early partner years. How do I figure out what my next goal should be? How should I work / prioritize differently? I would especially love to hear stories of how other partners approached their first few years. Thanks in advance!
What is partner comp at MBB in the first 1-3 years, 4-6 years and 6+ years (senior partner)?
Time for a come to Jesus moment... Think about this from a timeline perspective Which B is which in MBB? It's time we do a double click into this What's harder to get into than Harvard? WWG1WGA, but let's not boil the ocean Q
Interview on Friday for an internal audit position. Apparently I have to write a case assessment an hour prior to the interview (like an exam). Has anyone done such a thing before? Any tips?
My mat leave ends next month and I am absolutely dreading it. I’m fortunate that my baby is easy going and sleeping well so my time with her has been great. I’ve been getting bad anxiety thinking about returning to work. I’ve seen women post about how they couldn’t wait to go back to work so I feel strange that I’m not like that. Anyone else been through this?
Haven’t updated my resume since college (internship opps). Now a rising senior in October & not quite sure how to properly update resume... thinking of new exit opps, but have a lot of impostor syndrome... so how do I lift myself in resumes?
Got an informal offer to join a client (manufacturing company). 240k base, 60k cash bonus target (can shrink or double depending on company metrics) + 50k annual equity (3 yr rolling vesting). Director level which has just one additional layer between me and the Exec Committee. My contact already internal negotiated extra vacation and is working on my behalf for a signing bonus. Is it worth trying to negotiate base? Or is this already a strong offer?
How much equity to ask for a post-series A startup gig, leadership role? Like a general range roughly?

Why do I keep hearing from everyone and their mother that the COVID vaccine doesn’t hurt and it just feels like a little pinch and may feel sore a day or two after at the sight of injection. I mean, is this really a novel experience? We’ve been getting vaccines for years now, why do people talk about it like it’s some new invention that no one has heard of before?????
Has anyone gone on a solo trip or a female travel group trip that has recommendations? I have a week between jobs and thinking of exploring a new city.
