Consulting

Thoughts on Big 4 -> PE ops role? 2 years out of undergrad, interviewing for a 2 year analyst role, would then do MBA afterwards. Interest post-MBA would be turnaround and restructuring Not a "name brand" firm. Smaller, local shop but role would have broad exposure across the firm and might involve work with investment team after year 1

How do I succeed as a consultant? This is my first full-time role out of school. I had done 3 internships before. I love the challenge, the pressure on deliverable and the long hours. I’m interested in consulting and that’s why I’m here. I genuinely want to connect and learn from others SC. I want to gain trust and get more tasks, but I find myself still figuring out what’s going on in the company and the engagement after a month in. I want to be a rising star, how do I start?

Is it common for Big 4 to hire from ordinary colleges? I’m genuinely curious since not a single partner that I’ve known comes from a Ivy League and almost all of them have a single degree. Culturally this is slightly odd for me since I come from a place where u needed to have pretty strong credentials to get hired and people at the top had them too, if not better. Wondering if this is just skewed view due to the practices I’m exposed to or is actually common in the big 4?
