Hello everyone! Nice to meet you all. I have 6 years of experience across Deloitte & EY and currently studying for the GMAT. Targeting R2 LBS and R1 INSEAD (I’m based in London :) ). I’m currently 30 but very motivated to make a switch to MBB post business school. Should I be worried about my age? Do MBBs prefer younger candidates? More on my experience - working within the Consulting practice at D, doing Tech Transformation work. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all :)
How is the financial services consulting different across MBB? In terms of service offerings, areas of focus, culture
Partner at boutique - what’s the best way to enter MBB? (no undergrad degree, joined the Navy instead, but plenty of experience) Also, roughly what level would someone like me be considered for?
To those from MBB in Canada. Do any of your firms have sizeable Vancouver offices with Partners in BC?
How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!
What are my entry opportunities in MBB? I’ve done mostly tech consulting, project management and most recently M&A strategy & execution, non MBA (couldn’t afford one)
Anyone work at Wood Mackenzie in their consulting arm. Only have 50-60 people in US, but growing and have ex-MBB folks. Not much info available outside because of the small size

What is the best message when informing the rest of your company that someone was terminated? The backstory is that this employees performance has been struggling, he was put on a PIP, and in recent convos, he’s said that his role isn’t for him. As he is getting terminated due to performance, it feels more amicable now that he knows it’s not working and that he needs to find a new job. Thoughts on message to the rest of the company?

Seeking advice: anyone have experience dealing with a meddling sister-in-law (brother’s wife)? She’s constantly overstepping the bounds of what I think is appropriate (I.e., bossing around my elderly mother, getting rid of things without asking my mothers permission, changing my mothers decor). It just doesn’t feel right for her to do these things to my mother/interject in family affairs like this. Understandably brother doesn’t want to get in the middle of it. How to handle this?
