Exit opps in general will be better. Can you get there from other firms? Sure. But it'll be easier with MBB on your resume.

Btw I think the move is easier if you come from Deloitte or Booz. Or if you are legacy monitor

Um. No I think it's usually you work at big 4 get an mba and try to go to mbb

No true advantage. It's just a frecking job. I have gone back and forth between service and industry. As long as you have the experience the hiring manager is looking for, they don't care where you come from

As much as some may not agree, exit opps are better. Coming to MBB from B4 isn't easy without bschool first. I know a few BCGers who have come from B4 but all went through business school first.

They are quite biased against Big4 unfortunately. They think we are all dumb

At least for Bain they have very few experienced hires. Generally the pipeline comes either straight from undergrad or straight from MBA. So not likely unless you get an MBA and apply while in school.

D1, can you do it after an MBA? For example, let's say I got an MBA, then went to work for Deloitte. Could I then, a couple of years later, move to Bain?

Or if you truly align to one of their service lines and are well known throughout that specific industry

Can anyone share any experiences if someone successfully went to big 4 to MBB without their MBA?

My buddy who is currently at Deloitte, with an MBA, is waiting get his offer letter from BCG. It can be done.

My friend's friend who worked at EY for a little over a year switched to a MBB. Don't know the details but it can be done

Can't be done!

I've heard if you went to a top 5 (I didn't so doesn't matter to me) it's possible. Also, they are trying to break into the day 1 delivery space rather than top level strategy, so if you have good IMO/SMO skills it could be done.

Besides the salary, what is the real advantage? Exit into industry I don't feel is a big difference.

Hi! Looking for advice on a good light ring (I think that’s what it’s called). It’s for personal use but also for meetings and to record webinars. Also on a good video editing software.

Off topic but wanted to see if anyone can offer any advice - gf is moving in to my place. I asked for an additional parking spot at my apartment management. They approved, even gave extra garage remote. 5 days later, they say uh whoops we didn’t realize you were in a 1 bedroom, you can’t have more than one spot so we have to take this parking spot back.
I have their email approval but no signed contract. She already moved and now we don’t have a parking spot for her car. Anything I can do here?
