What's MBB?

Easiest routes are post-MBA or through strong referral. Comp on average better than audit firms. Your mileage may vary.

Depends a lot if you are doing consulting vs advisory/taxes. Work is way different. Your expected to produce thoughtful answers and excel, rather than just an excel spreadsheet

From what I've heard from close family in MBB it's very different. And easier to be happier at big 4 despite the sex appeal of MBB

Thanks, B1!

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers.

Looking for thoughts on if you would pursue an MBA given my age, YOE, current pay/track and post-MBA goals. 27M, 3 YOE all in consulting. I recently started a new job as a M1 (data side) and got 160k base + 30k sign on (late joiner so no bonus). I believe I could get to SM in 1-2 years. I don’t want to pivot into IB or PE, probably don’t want to work the hours required for MBB, but enjoy consulting and could see myself exiting to a tech company down the road.
