I have sponsorship from my consulting firm (tuition, requires 3 year commitment, definitely does not pay like MBB/T2). I got a 60k scholarship from Kellogg, should I just consider making a move to MBB/T2?
What’s the case for going to MBB for 2-3 years before trying to make a jump to FAANG vs going straight to FAANG post-MBA?
As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
For people who have switched from Big4/Tier 2 consulting firms to MBB, what's the reason you made that switch? Also, how are you finding consulting at MBB better than your earlier consulting gigs? What according to you, is the selling point for the tier 1 consulting firms?
I have an engineering background, graduated last December, and accepted MBB over FAANG (product design & manufacturing engineering offers) . This bowl’s focus on exiting consulting into FAANG (cont)

Any insight on getting MBA from mendoza as far as prospects for transitioning into a post-mba strategy consulting role? It’s ranked outside the top 15 but from research seems like it still sends plenty of grads to top consulting firms (not MBB)
What are some of the best consumer tech firms to target in Europe? Looking for a right fit after 5 years in MBB consulting. Wanted to check specifically about firms such as N26, Revolut, Delivery Hero, GetYourGuide as I found roles in them.
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
My career goal isn’t to make it to MBB or a unicorn or FAANG. It’s to feel fulfilled and challenged as I progress. I can’t be the only one that isn’t title or company chasing.
High perf M1 at Big4 in comm. and received Associate offer from MBB. Pay bump is somewhat ok and I get to work on something cooler but feels like a step back in career. Feeling conflicted. Thoughts?
Going to MBB from Tier 2...worth the switch?

Currently work at AWS in Business Intelligence and am looking to transfer into Product Management. Looking at MBB eventually. In my experience, most people from MBB have FAANG as their exit op. Why?

Currently an SC at EY up for promotion to Manager (no guarantee this will occur) and have an offer from Deloitte for SC for a $15k base increase. Would you take the offer or wait for promo decision?
Why do many tax lawyers end up going to Big 4 firms and act like a know-it-all - when they are actually law firm rejects??
So I want to transfer offices, but I'm up for promotion this year. Should I wait until after consensus or does it not matter since I wouldn't move until after the review year is over?
Starting Day 1 CPT for PhD in Jan and have interview lined up with McK. Any chance they would be willing to hire me with this work auth and file H1 next April?
An executive director was projecting his computer today and got into some technical issues. Hence, everybody in the meeting got to see what he was watching last night - "how I met your mother" 😬😬😬
Leaving the firm during audit busy season? My morale and energy levels are so low I feel like I’m hurting my team by being on the engagement and not giving it my all like I have in the past. Filing end of February before moving into another busy season client through end of April
I am currently in consulting with 3 years of experience - currently a Senior; 1 year previously in industry. What is the optimal number of years to stay in consulting? 3? 4? Or suck it up and stay till 5? I ask because I’ve been all over the gamut of recruiting from associate to senior associate roles for interviewing….
Why do I feel so guilty about wanting to take another offer and leaving my team? I like my current teammates just HATE the client and project. I’ve also asked for a raise multiple times and have been told no. I’m underpaid but am up for promotion this year (June). I don’t think Deloitte can/willmatch. I want to take the money but I feel like I’m still learning leaderships skills and can see the potential for beefing out the management portion of my resume. What would you do? (Offer 50% more)

Best place to stay in Montreal? Prefer SPG but open to other suggestions. Not for work. Two trips planned: one with family, other for bachelor party (if that helps)
Guys I have a huge problem. How do you make decisions? Especially when you're presented with multiple mixed bag of choices? Its what I'm struggling with lately for choosing a company to join. Btw, I have an enormous list of pros n cons YET it's difficult deciding based on short-term and long-term goals. I "need" a challenging role but also enough WLB for a good CTC. How do you decide what to accept and what to let go/sacrifice? It was fine for first 4 yrs of work, now I think shit's getting real
