I'm a Deloitte Tech Strategy & Architecture Senior Consultant with a Haas MBA looking to transfer to MBB. I'm up for manager this year and appreciate that if you move over you are expected to reset to first year post-MBA but has anybody been able to negotiate maybe a 2nd year post-MBA or even a manager/PL/EM entry? What specific tech skills are MBB looking for that they would be willing to offer flexibility on starting level. Again this is for the consulting not expert tracks at MBB. Many thanks in advance!

Anyone get an offer from another MBB firm while recruiting? Why did you make the choice you made?

9 months ago, I posted on this app that I was leaving FAANG for MBB. Every single responder discouraged me from doing it given worse WLB, less pay per hour worked, etc. I’m here to say that you were all correct. Every single one of you. I would go back in an instant if I could.

I recently transitioned from Finance to Internal Audit. While I think this job is perfect for what I want during this stage of my career I feel like theres a stigma.

Since the holiday season is almost over can you share how you respond to that? Or do you tell people you work "in compliance"?
