Any partners here that moved across MBB in the last five years? Would be interested in hearing experiences of what was similar/different.
McKinsey & Company Bain & Company Oliver Wyman McKinsey & Company Boston Consulting Group Bain & Company MBB, Big 4 ANZ fishes, is the public sector work significant in the region? Who are some of the key spenders? What kind of work should I expect?
When’s the right time to move to industry? Getting recruited for a senior product manager job with an ok pay bump at big pharma. 3YOE currently. Always thought the jump was the end game but seems early to leave now (wanted to stay and get MBA, try and leave at higher level, etc). Anyone make the switch early and have thoughts?
What’s MBB’s policy on MBA assistance?
Currently working in Big4 FDD, in M&A advisory. Generally how is this experience viewed by IBs, do you know anyone who came from this practice? Would a pivot to a T10 MBA first be the most reliable route?
Current intern: how poorly would it reflect on me to join a different MBB got full time? Would it impact my school?
I am currently working as a credit analyst with GIC Housing Finance and have completed my MBA in Finance (2020 batch). I am in dire need of a switch to the big 4s with a similar profile. Any referrals or recommendations would be of great help. Looking forward to reach someone who can help......

C at Deloitte in consideration for promotion to SC. Taken on a lot more project work as I'm handling multiple engagements. What compensation package should I request? STEM MS/MBA, CISSP, 6 yrs exp.
Looking for all lateral move at manager level. I’m looking for an established company with a good rep in digital transformation, but also looking for a good work life balance. Pretty sure this rules out MBB, Accenture and EY.
Any suggestions/feedback on firms?
Current shortlist is Deloitte, Capgemini, Baringa.
Which certification we would you recommend for career advancement to be an HR manager? PHR or SHRM? Any other certification I should consider? Pros and cons would be greatly appreciated!
Seeking advice for moving from industry leadership role (dr of training) into HC consulting. 20+ years in TD (L&D, PC, OCM). Industry roles for last 5 years but spent most of my career in small consulting orgs.
CPTD but no degree (long story, about 15 cr shy). Would you suggest addl cert (CCMP, SHRM-C)? Will the lack of degree a no-go or is there a way in while I finish? A Sr director role is being dangled. Would the title bump help with the transition or do I risk missing a hot market?
Any companies still hiring MBA interns this summer? My friend at Booth had a summer consulting internship that just got cancelled and is looking for other places to apply ASAP.
If most of the partners I work with are ex-MBB (at a T2) is that indicative of potential success at MBB?
I’m looking to transition into a career in consulting with a company(mbb). Will it make a difference if I end up in a T2 city vs let’s say Nyc or DC? Reason for career change is for more exit opportunities and better career progression.
An advice on how to approach the application and how to land an interview with an MBB firm? I am at Accenture but want to engage myself in “pure” strategy work.
If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB? ￼ Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered ￼solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?￼

Hi ladies! Looking for some thank you gift ideas and / or advice. My husband and I are moving out of the area we’re in and with that, have to say goodbye to our amazing dog walker. We wanted to give her a thank you gift and thought of writing her a nice, heartfelt thank you note and include a check (~$100). Would you consider that gift appropriate? Not sure if giving her money would be considered as rude? Maybe I’m just overthinking this lol shes just been awesome & feels like part of our fam
Hello my fellow extremely busy Women In Consulting - can you talk me through what first steps you took (or would take today) in living more sustainably? I'm currently in a place where I'm totally overwhelmed with life and do a lot of things purely out of convenience, but I don't want that to stop me from trying to build more sustainability in my life. I'm just struggling with finding where to start and trying to build new habits slowly so I don't lose steam. Any advice would be much appreciated!
If I'm not doing this for the money then what am I doing it for? That's what I tell myself going into a comp discussion. But the whole song and dance is just exhausting.
Any ladies here with PCOS or Thyroid issues dealing with lots of hair loss? Any remedies you’ve done that have worked for you?
PS - getting treated by an Endo and obgyn already for both conditions , so looking for more OTC things for hair loss!
Tips welcome on how to manage my “informal review” with my manager who has it out for me, re: not promoting me following a technical exam (on which I scored perfectly) and interview (on which I was failed ostensibly on subjective criteria). The promotion is a level and pay change, while tasks remain the same. I asked for this meeting. They brought in two external people this week who are the new level and pay above me, but I am training them—for my own job.
Do I need to wear a sari / lehenga to an Indian wedding? Three days of events. I’m not Indian, and this is a friend of my boyfriend’s (if that matters). I don’t want to be rude but also am budget conscious!

Does anyone know any recruitment agencies they can refer me to or any roles that are available ?
Feeling ugly / not cute these days, weigh a little more than usual and feel like I’m starting to age. “Friend” made an offhand comment the other day suggesting I’m not attractive enough to live in NYC. Not really sure what to do, I’m working on weight loss but it’ll take some time
Anyone willing to help with a quick finance related question? This is for a take home case. I have to calculate revenue but not sure how to incorporate the customer growth into my model
Advice needed: I’ve resubmitted deliverables after taking into account the critiques/edits made by my manager but they still don’t seem to be what the manager is looking for. I’m semi new to this so I’m always open to learning but I want to throw in the towel on this ask. How do you get your mind together after feeling like all your hard work isn’t paying off?
Unfortunately most women I’ve seen enter consulting single leave consulting single
@SC1... I hope your bfs comments gave you pause. You'll feel pressured since he moved to you. But he basically already said it's him or your career. If you want out of Consulting that's fine. But he wasn't very subtle.
I just find it weird that 2-3 nights away is so much! Maybe I just enjoy my quiet time and space
I recent met a guy and he likes the fact that I am ambitious and I am doing so much for work. I guess he is a power guy too.
I have been in the same boat for long. Meet someone Saturday then rest a week or meet family. Then meet after 15 days. Guys complain that the story never starts.
But this guy stays in touch on phone and is putting in effort and understands that it is what it is.
So, you will meet your match. ;)
Same here! They don’t like that I work 60 hour weeks and I don’t want to give up just like that. Slightly difficult to find guys who are as ambitious and ready to be a power couple.
I’m single. It’s super hard. Most men I meet don’t like that I travel
I also think it’s hard to establish a relationship when you’re away so much because it can be like first date on Friday, I’ll see you in two weeks! Any weekends away really mess with the ability to date consistently
Pwc2 I’m in NYC, have not hacked dating AT ALL.
I’m a recent MBA grad, and I agree, the consulting lifestyle is not conducive to starting a new relationship. I was in a LT relationship coming out of school, but unfortunately he had issues with my travel along with the fact that I was career-oriented in general. So far most guys don’t explicitly say they don’t like my career or the travel, but after trying to set up date after date and not getting anywhere, one of us gives up. Most guys just don’t have the patience to wait a few weeks to meet a girl when there are plenty who are around 7 days a week. Also, after a week of travel, oftentimes the last thing I want to do is spend a Friday or Saturday night with a stranger instead of my friends, family, or dog.
Dating in Atlanta is hard enough...adding consulting to it...it’s not going to be easy, unfortunately
Also anyone hacked nyc dating scene? It feels so trashy
My husband was a consultant long before I became one. Someone who dates a traveling consultant has to just understand that travel is part of the package. Unless you are willing to change your career, which only you will know. Not everyone is cut out to deal with someone being away so much.
@PWC2 I hope you find your power guy!
That’s what these guys on dating sites seem to think lol except if they’re on call or away then it’s okay
I find that I have enough time with my bf thurs-sun but then no time for friends/family. I feel like I’ve made my relationship work but relationships with friends are suffering :/ there’s literally just not enough time in the week
Been out of my MBA for 1 year. Dated 1 dude and we stopped talking because he got mad that I travel every week. So, yeah, it sucks. Doesn’t help you’ll be better educated and more successful than most of the dudes out there, too.
BCG1, do you think it is mostly bc of consulting? It’s kind of sad to hear that. It’s worked for me because my boyfriend and I are long distance anyway but he is moving to my city in a few months. He recently mentioned he may not be thrilled if I’m still traveling this much in a year or so from now, and it was really surprising to hear that.
OP, good luck! You will probably need some weekends to chill and then have some weekends for dates/friends, you’ll figure it out!
@pwc1 it’s not.
Maybe look for people who are also very busy (thinking doctors) and they might be more understanding? What about other consultants?
