🐠 fam - how’s FAANG sr prod manager screening different than consulting manager role with MBB? Anything out of the usual? Have an interview coming up soon and help will be great!
I’m really thinking about going back to school to obtain an MBA in like 2 years. Are there any certification(s) that I should get to increase my chances of getting employed by one of the MBB firms in the meantime? TIA
Which non-SWE roles are worth it at FAANG in terms of pay? Will any pay better than MBB?
Does it bother you that the job market is so faddish? When I left college (pre-crisis) most wanted to work for a bank or MBB. Now all I hear about is FANG (but mostly G) and startups.
Does MBB have a strong presence in the DC area?
I wanted to ask 2 questions 1. I used to hear Bain ME had an aweful culture before they made some major changes, firing leadership etc. and now apparently it has improved. Is it true? 2. Does a Partner 1 in MBB in ME making significantly more than in other firms ( Startegy&, OW, Kearney, Accenture).. Just wanted to know how large is the delta considering avg. performance
What made you decide to quit or resign from the big 4? I am super tired already and don't think I can perform well anymore. Seriously considering leaving without any job prospect as I can't - cont'd
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.
Trying for a job in the big 4 as a senior associate. No luck yet. Any suggestions 🐠. Close to 5 years experience and a Masters Degree. Looking for jobs in Data & Analytics - DW & BI.
Thoughts on Slalom v Big 4?
MBB 🐠 - For those who are actively seeking, why are you doing so? Is the MBB hype really worth it? Several from my UG have stuck around at BCG so I am curious to see what makes people stay vs leave.
If I make Partner at a Big 4 in M&A tax how much would I make first few years and how long till I touch $1m ?

I’m a current intern (extended from summer) whose signed an offer, then got an offer from another firm (so going midsize to Big 4), how do I go about telling them and can i break a contract like that?
Is it better to wait until promo before switching to other firms? Applying to MBB but worried that if I get the offer I’ll end up switching right before I get my promo from Deloitte. I would likely reset to entry level at MBB either way but the pay would be a substantial bump from my current pay (even after promo). I’m in my second year at Deloitte out of undergrad.
Move-up Anyone seen or know anyone that traded-up from one MBB to another MBB? Eg. A BCG PL hired as Principal at Bain; a Principal at Bain hired as Partner at McK; a consultant at McK hired a M etc
My coach confirmed that associates at PwC will be promoted after 2 years instead of 3 going forward. Just like the other big 4
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!
Does anyone have insight into why some consulting firms have better h1b approval than others? Post-mba consultant at D and I’m seeing friends at other firms with much better approval rates after graduation from mba but I imagine we do very similar types of work

Do you usually lie about your current salary when negotiating with a new employer? And by how much, 10% 20%? I resent the fact that I am even being asked. What I currently make is irrelevant.
Need some advice - been at the D for a year and have been on the same implementation project for over a year. Have a technical background and am thinking of starting to look for exits to industry but also am curious what strategy projects are and if I would be interested in the work. Is it worth networking onto a strategy project at the D or should I just continue to look for industry exists and then go b school and then try for MBB/T2 ?
