Hi there! Am I too late if I want to apply for MBB ops consulting roles as experienced hire? Heard summer recruitment might be starting soon
Which mbb firm does the most work in power and utilities? Anyone familiar with the type of work that group specializes in?
Coming from tech, $500k TC. What level at MBB pays this much? Feeling the itch to get back on the road again.
Do you think it’s better to go to immediately go a firm that’s beyond your skillset or work your way up to that firm? For example, going to a T2 firm as an experienced hire having never done consulting without or starting at a smaller consulting firm and then going to T2/MBB?
I am currently a SA at EY-Parthenon on the West Coast and looking to case for MBB. Comment if interested.
Is to possible for those counselled out from MBB to make their way back? Particularly at the junior level, so counselled out as an analyst then boomerang back at the consultant level
Has anyone gotten into MBB with a low GPA? I had a 3.4 from target school (had legitimate reasons but wish it was higher) but have a couple of referrals now. Should i address this in my cover letter?
Which firms have the fastest career path outside of MBB and T2? I know those are up or out and they must be fast. But are there other firms that are known for promoting quickly? What is the average years to partner at your firm?
What credentials do you need to get into MBB. I have a 4 yr B.E undergrad and an MIS grad degree. Worked for an IT services firm for 2.5 years, Deloitte for a year and now KPMG. Any tips?
Hi, what salaries can you expect as MBB project manager to tech (e.g., Dell, Oracle,..)?
Are people who get sponsored for MBA by MBB expected to return post-MBA? Can you intern at a non-consulting company during your summer internship? Do you burn bridges if you do not return to MBB?
LEK🐠, how different is our casework (pack creation / iteration, model approaches, expert interview formats) compared to MBB? If it’s fairly similar, I’d turn down the MBB offer I have to pivot into tech. If MBB gives a new consulting experience, I’d accept. Generalist path. TIA🙌🏼 L.E.K.

Hi all! Pleased to say I'll be starting at MBB in August. Anything you'd suggest doing between now and then as I have a lot of extra time and obviously can't travel. Thanks!
Any thoughts on Morning Brew as a workplace? Love their newsletter and podcasts. I am super keen about the space but I'm not sure if it's worth the pay cut from Manager level in MBB
What kinds of extracurriculars "count" for admissions? For example, I'm a serious musician and play in competitions and gigs; I also have some leadership experience from college that was pretty extensive (used it for all my job interviews) but hasn't continued since then. Also, how many activities do they usually ask for? Just trying to get a sense of how/if I should adjust my activities to be more "application-ready".
For road test at DMV, do they verify the registration of the vehicle or just our insurance?
Interviewing for a Senior Analyst role in data science & analytics in Detroit. Any idea what salary I should be asking for? Don’t want to sell myself short, but having trouble finding market value. Thanks.

What is the difference in WLB between a Product Manager or Strategy Role at FAANG and a post-MBA role in MBB? I don’t see myself do an MBA and then coming back to the usual 60-70 hours a week
Know you travel too much when you can judge the status of the SPG integration by the now matching granola in Marriott and SPG.
Me to CA : I feel happy with my job. My wlb and my pay My career advisor : that means you should take a leadership role in D&I, help more with recruiting and get another certification. Me : I want to stay happy with my job. CA : *laughs*
Does delta bump your status down one level even if you don't re-qualify? I just got gold status (made platinum last year) but haven't met the requirements yet
Is a year too soon to ask for a raise? If you've made a handful of things, some of them pretty cool, including a 360 campaign? Also...forgive my inexperience, but who do I ask about a raise?
What questions do you ask at the interview?
I just got into sim racing. Got a good deal on Logitech g920 and have f gt lite seat coming soon soon. Am playing project cars 2, assetto corsa, and Dirt rally 2.0. Any others into racing? It seems pretty fun but a huge learning curve to drive remotely reasonable and barely getting beyond 3rd gear before crashing unless it's a huge straightaway. Not sure if it's skill or settings.
Would anyone be willing to chat who made the jump from big 4 —> tech —> MBB? I did not have a great experience in tech and looking to pivot back into consulting. Went to a non-target undergrad but 10 YOE at good firms.
Any EY 🐟 install Skype for Business on their phones? I'd like to pretend to be available when I'm not at my computer - do you have installation tips?
How do you approach interviewing someone more senior than you? Small team so we’ll be interacting a lot.
