Do MBB still ask for GMAT score during OCR?
Didn’t get the MBB offer, so going FAANG
Did anyone make a transition from being an MBB data scientist to a FAANG data scientist? 1. How did you differentiate your value proposition? Given the solid technical bar, does consult and business skills create an advantage? 2. How do you feel about the change? 3. Any tips on the preparation process?
Work in niche tech consulting, in a part-time mba at T15 school. Rejections from 2/3 MBB already for internships, not feeling too hot about the third. Definitely think I fucked up the coffee chat portion of recruiting. Any tips to keep in mind before I head into F/T recruiting next summer?
All else equal, what would you take: Manager at LEK/OW/ATK or (post-MBA) Consultant at MBB? Is the brand really worth forgoing managing teams and the increased control over your life? Very conflicted!
What would you all say are the best consulting firms to work at in the federal government space? I’m not sure how many “prestigious” firms (like MBB) have a significant federal practice at all.
If FAANG PM roles are the new “prestige”, what graduate programs guarantee employment into FAANG at the same rate M7 lines you up for roles at MBB? Coding bootcamps don’t seem to be answer....neither does “Master in X”🧐
Which pays better and has better career highlights, FAANG or BIG4 or MBB or big Inv. Banks. I agree it depends on person to person, but it adds value to resume, get LOR from Dr, VP or PI-AP. Your thoughts. I know even techies or mba people have worked and moved from these org and they have their reasons to take a big role in big4 or smaller role in tech just because of the pay and wlb. For eg PM profile and onsite opportunities associated with tech co.
Hello fishes! Differences between MBB’s operation practices? Mck operations seem higher up? For people within those practices, against which firm do you compete the most during Rfp?
Does anyone else find it absolutely hysterical that people group MBB/FAANG/PE/VC for the prestige-oriented folks and they never include BB IB 🤣
If you already have an offer from Big 4 (same starting pay) and a very good chance to get an interview at MBB would you still go through the whole drill of case prepping etc? Is it okay to feel lazy?!
I read about this ex MBB with 5 YOE going to industry (non-tech) in HCOL for $370K TC. How is that even possible?
Any idea on what lifestyle looks like for Principal/ Director levels at KKR Capstone? Someone reached out for a role and I’ve honestly never considered PE Ops because of my perception that WLB will be worse than MBB.
Does it make sense strategically to lateral from T2 to MBB in the next few months (assuming late summer start) if I want to do 2022 on-cycle? Will funds care that I’d only have a few months of experience at MBB / would I be poorly perceived for wanting to leave MBB after a year?
Anyone Hiring or willing to refer for a new role Within industry/strat consulting for TMT (Telco,Media and Tech) Background : 8YOE (7 for TMT) 4 years in telco strategy (industry) 2.5 years Ex MBB Currently at Boutique (TMT focus) LOCATION: UK/London Thanks!
Wow just did an MBB interview today and it felt so good/natural considering my last interview was a total bomb with BCG two years ago. Feeling good ☀️
Is it true a lot of people in MBB want to exit for FAANG or other big tech? If so, is MBB not worth going to if I have an exit opportunity for big tech?
For those who made partner in recent years: Did you receive any constructive feedback in your written performance evaluations in the year or two leading up to your promotion or was everything positive?
On an H1b wanting to exit. If I go on search & then have 60 days of unemployment, would that be low risk to find a job? Or should I go on H4 while searching & reclaim H1b when I get an offer?
Interviewed for a dream job last week and recruiter said on Thursday he would call today with an update. BUT WHAT TIME?? Losing my mind over here 🤪🤪
While giving the tech interview as well as while having the HR discussion, I mentioned my expected CTC as 9-10 LPA(CTC). I cleared the interview and uploaded all the documents in the portal yesterday. Today mrng all the document verification was completed. But when I got the call for offer discussion, she asked what u expect. I said 9-10 LPA. She questioned me that on what basis I am asking for this much hike. She offered me 6.3 LPA as CTC with 21% variable. 5.2 as basic. Rest part in comments..

Hi All! Anyone from Accenture HR here.. I have been stuck in weird situation and need help.. I have been referred for level 7 as per my current exp. and expertise.

Now dont have much updates. want to know is it happened ever? I m tired this is never ending..

Hey fishies, I have a friend who is interested in becoming a consultant but he’s taken an interesting path, would love your advice on any good angles he could take for applying/ types of roles. He has a bachelors in science (chemistry maybe?) from H/Y/P and after undergrad he took a less traditional route and was working as an instructor for things like tennis, piano, snowboarding, etc.. He’s a really smart, personable person who I think would be great in consulting. (Continued)
My firm is considering going entirely remote. We’re a tax law and compliance firm. I can seen this happening for my role not sure about anyone else. Where would we meet clients in person?
I just received a verbal offer from West Monroe as an experienced hire, however sign-on bonus was never discussed. Should I expect some sort of sign-on bonus or do they not do that? Happy for the opportunity but don’t want to sell myself short
Is this dress appropriate for a firm holiday party with an “after 5 cocktail attire” dress code? I thought the neckline might be a bit risky but I don’t have much going on in the chest area so no cleavage really lol…I’m also the date and not the employee if it matters. Thanks!!
Currently TTC and have an awesome work schedule- telework 3 days/ wk. However, don’t like the project. Moms, are you able to get work done with baby at home while teleworking?
Appreciate the little things, folks. Like the moments when you’re not sick and can breathe normally through both nostrils. goddamn flu 😷
