For folks who get a company phone, do you keep two separate phones - one for perosnal and one for professional use? At my current company, I just file an expense for my monthly cell phone bill, so I keep my own phone and use it for both work and personal use. About to start at MBB soon and wondering if people just use the company phone for both use? Is it ok/accepted if your checked personal emails, social media, other apps etc.. on the company phone?
What’s culture and WLB like in Google Strategy and Ops? I see most are former MBB, and I’m curious if they continue to carry the expectation of long hours and availability after-hours.
Do MBB hire non-nationals to work in emerging-market offices or do they only transfer existing employees? Would be very interested in talking to a Westerner who’s done this. Am US-based now, but with lots of international experience + language skills, thinking of switching things up.
@mbb folks, I’m matriculating to a target school this fall and doing the early access programs. Should I be reaching out to the current employees that host the sessions or is that overkill? I figure that these sessions have a ton of people, though I don’t want to waste potential networking opportunities
Interviewing from T2 to MBB, experienced hire. Anyone knows how much more difficult the interviews would be compared to entry-level interviews?
Hello. I need help. I want to do HR strategy for orgs like strategy&, OW, or MBB. Right now I’m stuck in change management in my current firm 2 YOE, as a top performer however. Ways to either gain experience or reframe my resume to fit? Feel stuck.
What firms, besides MBB & Deloitte, will sponsor/pay for your MBA, assuming you get into a top 5?
Apply to HWS CBS and Booth round one. Should I add/revise. Stats below￼ MBB for 2 years, exited to a manger role at a unicorn startup 3.9 from HYPS, 334 GRE Standard ECs. Likely want to go back to MBB with sponsorship post MBA.
Going to one of HSW. If I decide to stay in consulting (potentially long term), is it worth forgoing a B4 sponsorship to try for MBB?
Preping for an interview for MBB. I never know how to prepare for the “tell me about a time you failed” q. Can anyone offer best way to approach this and perhaps an example?
MBB 🐠: what is the business development and internal firm initiatives expectation for associates/consultants or PLs? Is there a percentage you can provide?
How would you rank the non-MBB strategy shops? Including strategy “divisions” within larger firms
During an interview for undergrad campus position, is it too risky to say that one of reasons u like a company is bc of their gay network/the support for queer folkx in general (id explain it in a more elegant way ofc)? Interview is with partners for MBB (M-first/final round and Bain-final round). I’m a woman also btw
How much better are the exits ops from MBB vs T2. Don’t think I want to do consulting forever. But close to getting offer to lateral. Do I take it and exit in 1-2 years or just exit from T2? Thanks 🐠
Planning to switch companies but I'm currently in a consulting position on the bench. I'm worried if I give 2 weeks notice that I'll be let go immediately since I have nothing to transition, but I also don't want to screw over my current company by getting assigned to a project then leaving without notice. Am I just paranoid?
Im having a difficult time putting my role into words for performance feedback. I hate that the story has to be theater rather than my day to day. I feel extreme anxiety since I am new to consulting and don’t quite know how to define my role to make it more accepted for end of year reviews
Since Covid happened, I keep seeing posts about people working longer hours from home than at office. Well has anyone actually achieved the opposite, which is working less hours? You save time on commuting, meaningless meetings, coffee breaks, random questions from coworkers, etc. This question doesn’t apply to parents with young kids.
I’m applying for an industry job and the company has no parental leave benefits whatsoever. Even FMLA is just unpaid 12 weeks and require 1 yr of service. HR rep literally said “my kid is 18, I don’t

What’s the deal with the CFE affidavit witness? Do I need to have one sign for it even tho I passed the exam while living by myself?
Was invited to apply for a lateral in another group at my company - transactional (I’m in lit now). I have a lot of experience in what I do now and am getting good development opportunities within my group. However, I’ve been passed over for a deserved promotion 3 times and am doing work two salary bands above where I am now. I enjoy the transactional work even though I have less experience in it, and it would be a great resume builder. I am not great with risk taking/change. Wwyd?
